In the first segment of the Great One's program last night, Mark highlighted this article by Thomas Lifson at the American Thinker, describing a clip, recently dug up by the Confederate Yankee site (the clip was also played by Mark), in which the FBI informant who infiltrated the Weather Underground described the terrorist group's plan to exterminate 25 million Americans — the estimated number of incorrigible capitalists who would not take to Leftist "re-education" once Bill Ayers' revolution occurred. It's worth pausing over the monstrousness of it all. Here's the informant, Larry Grathwohl:
I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated.
And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."
Twenty-five million people. [Emphasis in original.]
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.
And they were dead serious.
Was Ayers really just "a guy who lives in my neighborhood"? You can get a sense of where he was coming from (and ask yourself whether it's remotely possible that anyone with a brain, especially a brain like Obama's, could not have known exactly where Ayers was coming from) by having a look at these excerpts from Prairie Fire, the Weatherman manifesto by Ayers, Dohrn and their associates — a website called ZombieTime has made it available, here.
Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.
