Larry Grathwohl, former Weather Underground operative and close associate of Bernardine Dohrn and William Ayers, who died yesterday:
...they [the leadership of the Weathermen] estimated the would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.Imagine if you would a different universe, one where these killers took power. It's not all that hard. They've taken power in so many other nations.
And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”
Twenty-five million people.
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.
Never forget. And insofar as they do not renounce...
William Ayers, On the Front Page of the NY Times, 9/11/2001
...then do not forgive.
Thank you, Mr. Grathwohl, for your service to your nation. And rest in peace.
