Why would C-Span give this “American” air time? In 1968 this “woman” was a Domestic Terrorist and Communist!!
This is what is wrong with the media. They give this Anti-American legitimacy!
Bernardine Rae Dohrn (née Ohrnstein; born January 12, 1942) is a former leader of the Weather Underground, a militant radical group responsible for bombings of the United States Capitol, the Pentagon, and several police stations in New York, as well as the accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion that killed three members of the Underground. As a member of the Weather Underground, Dohrn helped to create a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States government and was placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, where she remained for three years. From 1991 to 2013 she was a Clinical Associate Professor of Law at the Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University School of Law. She is married to Bill Ayers, a co-founder of the Weather Underground, who was formerly a tenured professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Via Wikipedia: Bernardine Dohrn
This is the group she co-founded with now-husband Bill Ayers:

The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, was an American militant radical left-wing organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Originally called Weatherman, the group became known colloquially as the Weathermen. Weatherman organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) composed for the most part of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Their political goal, stated in print after 1974, was to create a revolutionary party to overthrow U.S. imperialism.
With revolutionary positions characterized by black power and opposition to the Vietnam War, the group conducted a campaign of bombings through the mid-1970s and took part in actions such as the jailbreak of Timothy Leary. The “Days of Rage“, their first public demonstration on October 8, 1969, was a riot in Chicago timed to coincide with the trial of the Chicago Seven. In 1970 the group issued a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States government, under the name “Weather Underground Organization”.
The bombing campaign targeted mostly government buildings, along with several banks. The group stated that the United States government had been exploiting other nations by waging war as a means of solidifying America as a greater nation. Most were preceded by evacuation warnings, along with communiqués identifying the particular matter that the attack was intended to protest. No people were killed in any of their acts of property destruction, although three members of the group were killed in the accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion.
For the bombing of the United States Capitol on March 1, 1971, they issued a communiqué saying that it was “in protest of the U.S. invasion of Laos“. For the bombing of the Pentagon on May 19, 1972, they stated that it was “in retaliation for the U.S. bombing raid in Hanoi“. For the January 29, 1975 bombing of the United States Department of State building, they stated that it was “in response to the escalation in Vietnam“.
The Weathermen grew out of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) faction of SDS. It took its name from Bob Dylan‘s lyric, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”, from the song “Subterranean Homesick Blues” (1965). “You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows” was the title of a position paper that they distributed at an SDS convention in Chicago on June 18, 1969. This founding document called for a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement” and other radical movements to achieve “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and achieve a classless world: world communism“.” Via Wikipedia: Weather Underground
Why would NorthWesteren Univ. Hire her?
In 1991, she was hired by Northwestern University School of Law, as an adjunct professor of law with the title “Clinical Associate Professor of Law”.
Because Dohrn was hired as an adjunct (a temporary assignment), her appointment did not need to be approved by the faculty. When law school officials were asked whether or not the dean hired Dohrn or the board of trustees approved the hiring, the school issued a statement in response stating: “While many would take issue with views Ms. Dohrn espoused during the 1960s, her career at the law school is an example of a person’s ability to make a difference in the legal system.” Dohrn now serves on the board of numerous human rights committees. Since 2002, she has served as Visiting Law Faculty at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. Her legal work has focused on reforming the much-criticized juvenile court system in Chicago and on advocating for human rights at the international level.
Her husband is no better and guess who they have a relationship with, though the “media will tell you they were not close, Dinner in ones home would be evidence to the Contrary and their love for black power and communism is suppose to be a coincidence. They both were into politics in Chicago and activists. Hmm.
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, hosted a gathering at their home in 1995, where Alice Palmer introduced Obama as her chosen successor in the Illinois State Senate. Obama and Ayers’ nine years of service on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago overlapped for three years from 1999 to 2002, indicating that the two knew of each other relatively well.
In his first, two-year term in the Illinois Senate in the 90th General Assembly (1997–1998), Obama served on the Judiciary Committee and was involved in legislating a major overhaul of the Illinois juvenile justice system. On June 30, 1997, Ayers’ book, A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court, was published. On November 20, 1997, University of Chicago Associate Dean of Students Michelle Obama‘s University Community Service Center’s monthly discussion series held a six-person panel discussion (that included Ayers and Barack Obama) on the juvenile justice system from 6:00–8:00 pm, free and open to the public in the C-Shop in the Reynolds Club student center at 5706 S. University Avenue.
In November 1993, Obama became one of the five founding directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago when it split off from the Lincoln, Nebraska-incorporated Woods Charitable Fund, and served as a director for nine years until December 2002. Ayers served as a director of the Woods Fund of Chicago for nine years from December 1999 until December 2008, overlapping with Obama for three years from December 1999 until December 2002. Laura S. Washington, chairwoman of the Woods Fund, said the small board had a collegial “friendly but businesslike” atmosphere, and met four times a year for a half-day, mostly to approve grants
On March 2, 2001, Ayers made a $200 contribution to Obama’s third campaign for the Illinois Senate.
On April 20, 2002, the University of Illinois at Chicago spring semester Liberal Arts and Sciences course “LAS 400: The University and the Public Sphere; Public Intellectuals and Their Social Influence” concluded with a conference “Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?” that included a six-person panel discussion (that included Ayers and Obama) on “Intellectuals in Times of Crisis: Experiences and applications of intellectual work in urgent situations” from 2:15–3:45 pm, free and open to the public in the UIC Chicago Illini Union student center at 828 S. Wolcott Avenue.
In June 2005, the Obamas purchased and moved to a 4th Ward Kenwood house on Greenwood Avenue, four blocks from Ayers townhome.
An August 2008 USA Today article reported “The last time Obama saw Ayers was about a year ago when he crossed paths with him while biking in the neighborhood,” says Ben LaBolt, a campaign spokesman. “The suggestion that Ayers was a political adviser to Obama or someone who shaped his political views is patently false.” An October 2008 New York Times article reported that Obama did not have a significant relationship with Ayers. In a November 2008 Washington Post interview, Ayers said that he knew Obama only slightly: “I think my relationship with Obama was probably like that of thousands of others in Chicago and, like millions and millions of others, I wished I knew him better.”
Does the New York Times and the Washington Post think Americans are that stupid? there is an obvious relationship there, and then trying to silence it makes me angry!! It just shows you the depth of the corruption in our “media”
