Boomer Bombers

Brenda Kilianski, in a morally discerning piece on the legacy of the Weather Underground:
Even after 9/11, Ayers and Dohrn weren't under the same media scrutiny as now. How is it that a guy who says, "I don't regret setting bombs," or gloats after being released on a technicality about being "guilty as hell, free as a bird" has been more of a media darling than a pariah? Imagine Eric Rudolph or Timothy McVeigh saying the same things.
Bombers from the left
get treatment light and deft.

Politician Associates with Socialist Radicals

Tony Zirkle wants to run for Congress as a Republican in Indiana.

He recently attended a commemorative birthday party for Hitler, here in Illinois, held by the American National Socialist Workers Party.
He said he did not know much about the neo-Nazi group and that his intention was to talk on his concern about "the targeting of young white women and for pornography and prostitution."
Note that it's just the white women he's worried about.

Here's the youtube video of him, speaking at a lectern with a huge Hitler photo behind him.

He's an Annapolis grad, and a lawyer.  But he says he didn't know much about the neo-Nazi group.

When seeking election, it's normally best
not to speak at Nazi Fest.
