The Weather Underground Outsmarted America

     If you don't know who Larry Grathwohl is, I suggest you Google him and read his story.  After returning from Vietnam, where he served as a paratrooper, Mr. Grathwohl was a student at the University of Cincinnati when he was recruited by the FBI to become an undercover infiltrator in the violent 1960's terrorist group, the Weather Underground.
     Unlike the current ethnically diverse U.S. terrorists who are labeled as "home-grown", this group embodied the true sense of that term.  Most of them were affluent white kids who embraced an idealistic, totalitarian, communist vision of America, and were committed to bringing down the constitutional republic of the United States.  Mr. Grathwohl related his truly frightening experiences with these terrorists in a compelling book, titled Bringing Down America, which was published in 1976.
     In the book, Larry portrays the leftist radical leaders of the movement as full-fledged followers of the morally bankrupt communist philosophy, which included "a world of hatred, drugs and free sex."  The insider information that Grathwohl provided to the FBI helped slow down the movement's momentum and disrupt the leaders' impact.  Notice that I said "slow down", because it is Mr. Grathwohl's [and my] contention that the influence of those leaders is still very much alive in this country; they just changed their tactics and their modus operandi and have managed to accomplish their goals in a much more surreptitious manner.
     You see, those radical communist student leaders morphed into mainstream roles and have achieved their original goal: warp the minds of our youth and turn them against free enterprise, capitalism, individualism, and most importantly, American exceptionalism.  They haven't changed their names and you know who they are.... Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Kathy Boudin.  They changed their former methods of terrorism (bombs and guns) for more subtle and invasive ones (openly teaching leftist/liberal/communist ideology while under the protection of Ivy League professorships).  And that is why Larry Grothwohl has re-released his 1976 best-seller, at his own expense.  He strongly feels that America needs to be reminded that terrorists have not changed their stripes.
     They have managed to hide their extremism under a cloak of respectability and peddle it as academia.  The philosophy of the Communist Collective has been re-packaged as "Re-distribution of Wealth".  These leftist radicals now carry the prestige and honor that come with their credentials;  how could an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University's School of Social Work (Kathy Boudin) possibly be a terrorist?  And could an Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law (Bernadine Dohrn) ever have been involved in the bombing of the United States Capitol?  And surely Bill Ayers, that retired professor of the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, (formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar), saw the error of his ways as co-founder of the Weather Underground.  After all, he may have once been the primary leader of the self-described communist revolutionary group, (who, by the way conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings), but now he is simply an American elementary education theorist .... r-i-i-i-g-h-t!
     And if you want proof of just how successful these radicals (note I did not use the adjective "former") have been, just consider what we are seeing in our current education system.  See if you agree with this statement, recently discovered in a Tennessee high school textbook titled The Cultural Landscape: An Introduction to Human Geography.  The textbook asked the question, “If a Palestinian suicide bomber kills several dozen Israeli teenagers in a Jerusalem restaurant, is that an act of terrorism or wartime retaliation against Israeli government policies and army actions?” Hmmm, seems kind of anti-Semite, wouldn't you say?  The book went on to suggest that terrorist groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah and the PLO are nothing more than political parties. 
     Here's another example of how the landscape has changed in American education:  A professor of Islamic Studies at University of Massachusetts–Dartmouth has admitted to mentoring Boston terrorist  Dzhokhar Tsarnaev via email.  Apparently the good professor felt it his duty to inform Dzhokhar of the history of Chechnya and its fight against Russia.  "First of all,  the Chechens I have met, including the members of the small tight knit community here in Boston, tend to be rather Sovietized, secularized, moderate Muslims,” he stated.  They "tend to emulate George Washington for freeing the 13 colonies from British oppression."  But given Chechnya’s long history of terrorism and human rights abuses, the professor seems to be confused about the reasons that Washington took up arms.  His remarks assert that Chechnya’s struggle against Russia is solely nationalistic, but he fails to mention that the rebels' goals (at least in part) include the establishment of a unified Islamic theocracy, which rebel fighters have admitted to seeking.  How can you call this "education" when students don't get the whole truth?
     And finally, you have been hearing a lot about C-Scope in regards to American education.  And if you haven't, then I'm warning you .... look into it!  Here is another fine example of how our educational system is being co-opted by radical forces:

World History CSCOPE Shari'a Law
Example of C-Scope curriculum

     So, I ask you, is this what you want the focus of your children's education to be?  Why are we teaching Shari'a law in our schools?  As a self-proclaimed activist and "education reformer", Bill Ayers has edited and written many books and articles on education theory, policy and practice, and has appeared on many panels and symposia.  Sol Stern, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, has also written extensively on education reform.  But he's not so quick to praise Mr. Ayers's value as an education authority.  "Calling Bill Ayers a school reformer is a bit like calling Joseph Stalin an agricultural reformer.  The media mainstreaming of a figure like Mr. Ayers could have terrible consequences for the country's politics and public schools." 
     I think we are seeing those consequences today.  I'm afraid if we don't take back our public schools and remove the socialist and communist influences in our universities, then we have lost this country.  What Ayers and his radical friends could not accomplish with violence and bombs 45 years ago, they have very nearly succeeded in pulling off through their covert domination of academia.  We must become activists ourselves and root out this Evil!

If you would like to read the up-close and personal encounter with America's radicals of the 1960's, you can purchase Larry Grathwohl's republished book, Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer With The Weathermen.

Ephesians 6:4     "Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."


  1. The fact that Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrne and their co-conspirators are tolerated in public is yet one more damning indictment for our "Mainstream Media." The Weather Underground was made up of terrorists, traitors, criminals and killers. They should all be in jail for their crimes. Their current status is one of the most illogical and tragic examples of modern America.

    As for teaching Shari'a law in schools, I'm not so much opposed to it...IF...they teach the full context of it. Some time ago I shared with you copy of The Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al Salik), which is the book of Shari'a law authorized by Al'Ansar University in Egypt (THE legal authority for Sunni Muslims) and declared to be the law of the land in Saudi Arabia as the most definitive and authoritative compendium of legal requirements for Muslims throughout the world. And if we teach Shari'a, let's teach all the juicy parts, because there are some real eye-openers to be found in this book. These are all directly from Reliance of the Traveler and I'm not making any of them up; and they are not an all-inclusive list, but merely some that I find particularly noteworthy with regard to life in America.
    Rules for Jihad:
    The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (Ijma) is such Koranic verses as:
    (1) Fighting is prescribed for you'' (Koran 2:216);
    (2) ``Slay them wherever you find them'' (Koran 4:89);
    (3) "Fight the idolators utterly" (Koran 9:36);
    Where the Prophet Muhammad has said, "I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat.

    When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman's previous marriage is immediately annulled.

    (Slavery is fully accepted in Islam. This is subject that is just too broad to go into in this already-long post to you.)

    Or let's talk about Thievery:

    Allah Most High says: "Thieves, male or female - cut off their hands in retribution for what they have earned, as an exemplary punishment from Allah. Allah is Almighty and Wise" (Koran 5:38).

    Or Adultery: (this includes any sex outside of marriage or between same-sex couples)

    The legal penalty is obligatorily imposed upon anyone who fornicates or commits sodomy. If the offender is someone with the capacity to remain chaste, then he or she is stoned to death.

    Marriage laws:

    It is not lawful or valid for a Muslim man to be married to any woman who is not either a Muslim, Christian, or Jew; nor is it lawful or valid for a Muslim woman to be married to anyone besides a Muslim.


    The following are not subject to retaliation: a Muslim for killing a non-Muslim... Killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences... A father or mother (or their fathers of mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring.

    Denying or Leaving Islam (Apostasy):
    When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    [More to follow in the second half of my reply.]

  2. Continuing on...

    Now Apostasy is a particularly interesting concept from my perspective. Of its many possible aspects, Reliance of the Traveler includes these three specifically:

    - to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (Ijma) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it.

    - to deny the obligatory character of something which by the consensus of Muslims (Ijma) is part of Islam,

    - to believe that things in themselves or by their own nature have any causal influence independent of the will of Allah.

    So, if you are a good Muslim and want Shari'a law throughout the land, you are bound to follow ALL of it, ALL the time. And EVERYTHING is due to the will of Allah. If you decide to pick and choose which parts are OK and which parts you don't want, then you've denied some part of the Koran or some part of Ijma (verified to be directly derivative from the life/teachings of Muhammad). And to pick one part and exclude another is to commit apostacy and be subject to death. And if you've committed an apostate act, it must be the will of Allah, so it must mean that he really wants you dead. There is no way to talk your way around this logic if you are truly a good Muslim.

    The full nature of Shari'a is easy to figure out. And you don't need to take my word for it -- just read the source document. You can get a free, searchable PDF from many different "scholarly" Muslim sites. You can order it hardcopy from Amazon.

    So...for anybody who encounters the 'enlightened' idea of including or 'embracing the diversity' of Shari'a law, I'll give you some very simple questions you can ask. Pick any from 1 - 6, and then follow with 7 & 8:

    1. "Isn't it a requirement for every Muslim to ultimately fight against non-muslims?"

    2. "Should a convicted thief always have their hand cut off?"

    3. "Should non-marital sex or homosexuality always be punished by death?"

    4. "Should a Muslim woman be allowed to marry a Christian man?"

    5. "Should a parent be allowed to kill their child if they want to?" (This, by the way, is the root of "Honor Killing.")

    6. "Is anybody who denies any part of the Koran or consensus of Islam known as 'Ijma' an apostate?"

    7. "Should apostates always be killed?"

    8. "Have you ever committed an act of apostasy?" (Ha! Trick question for any Muslim who answered 'no' to any of 1 - 7 above.)

    As you already know, Belle, this is by no means a comprehensive list. These are just some of the most significant items that immediately come to my mind.

    Anybody, who deliberately denies ANY part of the Koran or Shari'a law is committing apostasy. And if they don't immediately repent and correct their ways, any other good Muslim is obliged to take steps to immediately have the apostate(s) killed. Yes, we should teach THAT part in our schools.

    PS Now for any Muslim who is reading my discussion above, you better not get mad: I've done NOTHING that isn't part of Shari'a or in the Koran. I haven't said it was bad. I haven't said it wasn't true. In fact, I've actually agreed that we should teach it to EVERYBODY as the COMPLETE TRUTH. In fact, just that I've taken the time to write to Belle is just the WILL OF ALLAH, right? So, to all you Muslims out there in America, step up and proclaim the tenants of your faith, tell everyone what exactly it means and how exactly you will treat them. Be sure that if you don't, I will. Insh'allah!!!

    PPS Such is the foundation of my name: Green Eyed Jinn -- tormenter sent by Allah to punish all hypocritical Muslims in the world. And frankly, that's all y'all; you just need to own it. Al'hamdu Allah!

    Green Eyed Jinn, out.

    1. I hope everyone takes the time to not only read your eloquent comments, but does their own research and then spread the word. It's time to quit white-washing the truth and shine the light on Shari'a law and what it will mean for us and the world. THANK YOU for enlightening us!

  3. It appears to me, Satan is working very hard at this time, as he knows he has but little time left. Here it is evident he utilizing three of his hidden dynasties, education, religion, politics, simultaneously to destroy our family values, morals and integrity which has been instilled in us by the God Almighty.
    We are living in perilous times, there seems to be far too few of us who are aware. Those around us seem indifferent, or in a spirit of slumber, with little concern of what's going on, blindly following, some thinking well, we can't change it why worry about it. Or justifying it by saying these are professionals, educated teachers, they know what's best. As I was once in a spirit of lumber and only awaken in last fifteen years, I pray those sleeping, parents, our national leaders, teachers and preachers, wake up, our children and grandchildren are at stake as well as our once God blessed nation. We have strayed far from God. God bless.

    1. You are absolutely on target! The Enemy has infiltrated every aspect of our national soul and conscience and caught us slumbering. We were not vigilant, and it is nearly too late to stop the damage. I know that we have grievously offended God and refused to repent of our idolatry and our compromise. The Church has fallen into apostasy and too many Christians don't even know what they believe or why. Those of us who are awake have been given a discernment that seems foreign to the rest of our brethren. But we cannot withdraw from the field of battle; our eternity and that of our fellow Americans depends on us! Keep fighting for God!
