Weather Underground's "Smash Monogamy" Campaign

We've all heard that former Weather Underground members Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, are unrepentant ex-terrorists.

Are they unrepentant about smashing monogamy?

From the late, great, Moonbat Central blog in 2005:

According to the 1989 book Destructive Generation: Second Thoughts About the '60s by Peter Collier and David Horowitz, Weatherman trainees underwent grueling rituals of self-abasement and abuse in which their dignity, individuality and even sexual identity was brutally extinguished. On pages 84-87, Collier and Horowitz write;

"[The Weather Underground] initiated a 'smash monogamy' campaign to destroy bourgeois sexual hang-ups: Once monogamy was smashed, couples who in some cases had been together for years were harangued until they admitted their 'political errors' and split apart. "The next logical step was group sex. One of the last taboos was homosexuality, and the Weather command forced itself toward experimentation in this direction, instructing male and female cadres to 'make it' with members of the same sex."

Collier and Horowitz report that, for many aspiring Weathermen, "this was one taboo that was hard to break." Good heavens. Can you imagine?

Eeww! The post goes on to explain that Ayers and Dohrn "reportedly pioneered the program."

The Moonbat Central link comments on F-Troop Indian and fired University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill's ties the the terror group. In 1987 Churchill made the claim that to the Denver Post that he trained members of the Weather Underground on how to make bombs. However, Dohrn and Ayers dismissed that claim in this 2007 YouTube video recorded by Grant Crowell.

Churchill claims to have taken part in the Weather Underground's Days of Rage in Chicago in 1969. In this mp3 file, courtesy of Pirate Ballerina, Churchill appears to take delight during a question-and-anwser session that then-City of Chicago Assistant Corporation Counsel Richard Elrod broke his neck, leaving him a paraplegic, during those riots.

The former professor tells his audience:

They couldn't figure out to do with (Elrod)...said what's the most useless position in Chicago...said sheriff...sheriff doesn't do anything, so the Democratic Party ran Richard Elrod for sheriff, we put the guy who broke his neck up as the opposing candidate and got 12,000 votes.

(I'm not so sure on that last bit, and the man who was charged in the Elrod attack, Brian Flanagan, denies the accusation to this day, and was acquitted of all charges regarding the incident one year later.)

Although Ayers and Dohrn don't remember Ward Churchill during their glory days in the Weather Underground, they know of him now. Both academics signed an online petition opposing the firing of Ward Churchill from the University of Colorado.

I don't know if there's a "Smash Mongogamy" petition out there.

If anything this is a reminder of what clowns these people were and how ridiculous it is to compare them to the Baider-Meinhoff Gang, never mind al-Queda!

The Weather Underground weren't clowns. The murdred people & wanted to murder millions more. The only remorse Ayers expresses is that he didn't kill more people.
