The influence of Columbia University School of Journalism is substantial. Alumni have gotten jobs at such prominent media outlets as The New York Times, Bloomberg, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, USA Today and Sarasota Herald Tribune (Carrie Seidman a graduate of the Columbia University School of Journalism). Columbia University Alumni have also worked at a number of left-wing outlets including Mother Jones, The Huffington Post, NPR and The Nation – the same operations their former professors staff. Columbia Professor Todd Gitlin pointed to Students for a Democratic Society as a positive influence on the Occupy Movement. SDS was an often violent, radical left-wing group born out of the anti-war protests in the 60s. Gitlin was a founding member of the group, and its third president. This is the same group that bombed a Chicago police memorial and instigated the “Days of Rage” riot in Chicago in 1969. An offshoot of the SDS, the Weathermen (later called the Weather Underground Organization), was classified as a domestic terror group by the FBI after they used bombings, robberies and arson to further their political agenda. Gitlin was president of SDS in 1963 and 1964. Ironically, Gitlin teaches an elective at Columbia called “Argumentative Journalism.” Apparently Columbia likes hiring former SDS members. Columbia School of Social Work professor Kathy Boudin previously spent 22 years in prison for her part in a Weathermen armored car robbery that caused the deaths of two police officers.
The Weather Underground terrorism days of Bill Ayers in the 60's and 70's have morphed into AntiFa of today, same Marxist-Lenin ideology just different day. No matter how many communist hammers & sickles or images of Marx, Mao, and other communists the violent Antifa radicals display, the liberal media continue to present them as idealistic "anti-fascists." Communist parties and communist organizations such as the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Workers World Party (WWP), By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and RefuseFascism.org provide the key leadership, ideological indoctrination, organizing, and training for the Antifa rioters. They also provide the chants, slogans, signs, and banners for the Antifa confrontations.
Communist SDS leader and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers is one of the many radical Marxists now continuing their 1960s activism through Antifa. At a Trump campaign rally in Chicago on March 11, 2016, Ayers joined Antifa, Revolutionary Communist Party, and Communist Part PUSA agitators who violently blocked the rally, causing it to be cancelled. A video interview with Ayers at the event also shows many of the other participating communist groups, as well as featuring a young anti-Trump woman who sings/chants about “armed revolution” and “it’s time to pick up a gun.” More SDS Reds from the 1960s, such as C. Clark Kissinger and Dan Siegel, are helping the Antifa anarcho-communists: Clark Kissinger was national secretary of the SDS in the 1960s and was such a devoted Maoist that he visited Communist China twice and was an avid propagandist for Chairman Mao’s bloody Cultural Revolution and Red Guards. His fervor has not dimmed over the past five decades: He continues as an activist comrade in the Revolutionary Communist Party, writes for the RCP’s Revolution newspaper/website, runs the Revolution Books bookstore in New York City, and is a leading figure in the Occupy Wall Street movement, as well as in the RCP fronts (and Antifa’s guiding allies) Refuse&Resist, NotInOurName, and RefuseFascism.org. Dan Siegel was an SDS leader and, as student body president at the University of California-Berkeley, led the 1969 “Bloody Thursday” riot, also known as the “Battle for Peoples’ Park” at UC Berkeley. He has been a radical “civil rights” lawyer ever since. He is an Occupy Wall Street/Occupy Oakland activist and a longtime friend and adviser to radical Oakland Mayor Jean Quan. Siegel’s Occupy comrades turned the series of Occupy Oakland protests in 2011-2012 into bloody riots that were some of the most violent, destructive, and costly operations of the Occupy movement. The Occupy Oakland conflagrations served as a principal training ground for Antifa recruits.
NYP: Columbia students team up with antifa to protest Mike Cernovich. “People wonder why citizen journalism is on the rise, the reason is we are telling stories that no one wants to tell,” Cernovich claimed during his speech. “We’re telling the stories that are true.” Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims”. This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States. Antifa groups, along with black bloc activists, were among those who protested the 2016 election of Donald Trump. There is currently, on the streets, smashing storefronts and setting things on fire, a group called “Antifa,” for “anti-fascist.” Antifa are not a new phenomenon; they surfaced during the Occupy movement, and during the anti-globalization protests of the late 1990s and early 2000s. “During an eighteen-month period in 1971 and 1972, the FBI reported more than 2,500 bombings on U.S. soil, nearly five a day.” So notes Bryan Burrough in his 2015 book Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence, which chronicles the 15-year reign of terror, idealism, and ineptitude of radical left-wing groups such as the Weather Underground, the Black and Symbionese Liberation Armies, and others that began in July 1969 with a bomb in Manhattan and ended in April 1985 with the arrest of the last members of the United Freedom Front in Norfolk, Va. Writes Burrough: “Radical violence was so deeply woven into the fabric of 1970s America that many citizens, especially in New York and other hard-hit cities, accepted it as part of daily life.”
Bernardine Rae Dohrn and Bill Ayers had began a life together in New York City in the early 1970's, still underground using assumed ID's. William "Bill" Ayers used aka Michael Charles Rafferty Jr, aka Jules Michael Taylor, aka Hank Anderson, Bernardine Rae Dohrn used aka Lorraine Anne Jellins, aka Sharon Louise Naylor (Taylor) and aka Karen Louis DeBelius. Ten years later in 1980, Dohrn and Ayers finally turned themselves in, in Chicago. Bernardine Dohrn initially moved to New York City to work for the National Lawyers Guild in 1967, an organization with which the Weather Underground and the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee have worked very closely is the National Lawyers Guild. The National Lawyers Guild in the old days was frequently identified as a legal front organization for the Communist Party. In June of 1969 Bernardine Dohrn met with Communist Cuban Intelligence officer Jose Viera at the Cuban Mission to the U.N. at East 67th Street New York NY, the following month (July) Dohrn led a SDS contingent to a meeting in Havana with Communist representatives from Cuba and North Vietnam. In the fall of 1969 the SDS dissolved and Bernardine Dohrn joined forces with Bill Ayers to start the Weathermen. On June 9, 1970, a bomb made with ten sticks of dynamite exploded in the 240 Centre Street, the headquarters of the New York City Police Department. The explosion was preceded by a warning about six minutes prior to the detonation and was followed by a WUO claim of responsibility. With the help from Clayton Van Lydegraf, the Weather Underground sought a more Marxist–Leninist ideological approach to the post-Vietnam reality. The leading members of the Weather Underground (Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Celia Sojourn) collaborated on ideas and published a manifesto: Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism. The name came from a quote by Mao Zedong, "a single spark can set a prairie fire." By the summer of 1974, 5,000 copies had surfaced in coffee houses, bookstores and public libraries across the U.S. Leftist newspapers praised the manifesto. After leaving the underground (and Federal Prison), Bill Ayers and Dohrn set up shop in NYC in 1982, where they married and where he later earned an M.Ed from Bank Street College at 610 West 112th St New York, NY 10025 in Early Childhood Education (1982-1984), an M.Ed from Teachers College, Columbia University in Early Childhood Education (1987) and an Ed.D from Teachers College, Columbia University in Curriculum and Instruction (1987).
60's Columbia University student Mark William Rudd is a political organizer, mathematics instructor, anti-war activist and counterculture icon most well known for his involvement with the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground. Rudd, led the riots at New York's Columbia University during early 1968 and was acknowledged as one of the leaders of the Weather Underground Organization when the group submerged into the underground in early 1970. Rudd became a member of the Columbia University chapter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in 1963. By 1968, he had emerged as a leader for Columbia's SDS chapter. During the 1968 Columbia University Protests, he served as spokesperson for dissident students protesting a variety of issues, most notably the Vietnam War. Rudd went "underground" in 1970, hiding from law enforcement following the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion that killed three of his Weather Underground peers. He surrendered to authorities in 1977, serving a short jail sentence. Several Columbia SDS members combined with the New York Black Panther Party to create Weatherman, a group dedicated to the violent overthrow of the government. Julie Nichamin, one of the old SDS and Weatherman leaders, a repeat "visitor" to Cuba, and a leader of the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, serves as a coordinator for the Puerto Rican Solidarity- Committee in 1975. The Puerto Rican Solidarity Committee is the propaganda arm of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party and defends terrorist and other violent activities on behalf of Puerto Rican independence. During the last years of their underground life 1979 to 1980, Dohrn and Ayers resided in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago where they used the aliases Christine Louise Douglas and Anthony J. Lee.
According to Bill Ayers in the late 1970s, the Weatherman group further split into two factions — the May 19th Communist Organization based in New York City from 1978-1985 with Judith Alice Clark and the Prairie Fire Collective — with Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers in the latter. The M19CO name was derived from the birthdays of Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X. The May 19 Communist Organization was active from 1978 to 1985. M19CO was a combination of the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground. It also included members of the Black Panthers and the Republic of New Africa (RNA) terrorist organizations. The Prairie Fire Collective favored coming out of hiding and establishing an above-ground revolutionary mass movement. With most WUO members facing the limited criminal charges (most charges had been dropped by the government in 1973) against them creating an above ground organization was more feasible. The May 19 Communist Organization continued in hiding as the clandestine organization. A decisive factor in Dohrn's coming out of hiding were her concerns about her children. The Prairie Fire Collective faction started to surrender to the authorities from the late 1970s to the early 1980s. The remaining Weather Underground members continued to attack U.S. institutions. From 1982 to 1985 M19CO committed a series of bombings, including bombings of the National War College, the Washington Navy Yard Computing Center, the Israeli Aircraft Industries Building, New York City's South African consulate, the Washington Navy Yard Officers' Club, New York City's Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, and the United States Capitol Building. On September 26, 1984, the South African consulate was bombed. The M19CO alliance's last bombing was on February 23, 1985, at the Policeman's Benevolent Association in New York City.
Investigators have stated that Bernardine Dohrn may have played a small part (or helped plan) the 1981 Brinks’ robbery. Bernardine Dohrn was the manager of the Manhattan children’s boutique Broadway Baby in 1979, which gave her access to customer information; with this information, it was possible for Dohrn to assist in creating fake identification for Family members (Weathermen). After her arrest and during her trial for the Brinks robbery Judith Alice Clark remained defiant in her revolutionary beliefs. She said she was “an anti-imperialist freedom fighter” and maintained violence was “a liberating force.” Bernardine Dohrn was suspected of assisting those involved by obtaining false drivers’ licenses for them. Bernardine Dohrn had listed an address of 520 West 123rd Street New York NY, two blocks above Columbia Univ. Teachers College. "November 27, 1980 A woman who has lived on the West Side of Manhattan for two years has been identified as Bernardine Dohrn, the fugitive leader of the radical Weather Underground". According to a 1982 New York Times report, "Broadway Baby" which opened in July of 1979, was implicated in an investigation of a series of violent armed robberies in New York—netting more than $2 million over a two-year span—committed by former Black Panthers and Weather Underground members in the early ’80s. At "Broadway Baby", customers often paid by check and used driver’s licenses for identification which is SOP at any department store. On Dec. 28, 1979, information from two customer files was used to apply for two driver’s licenses at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. The fraudulent licenses were used to rent getaway cars for the gang from Econo Car where one of the Agents was none other Dohrn's best friend forever Katherine (Kathy) Boudin. Investigators tracked the identities on two licenses for the getaway cars. The names belonged to women who had shopped at Broadway Baby in December 1979. The manager of Broadway Baby during that period of the customer ID theft was Bernardine Dohrn (who at this time was underground with Bill Ayers and already had one child with him, a son, Zayd, in 1977), identified by investigators as taking customer information from one, and possibly both, of the women shoppers.
