Witness To the Revolution - (Romanticizing Terrorists)

Witness to the Revolution is a new non-fiction (but should actually be in the Fiction section) by Clara Bingham in which she romanticizes anti-war destruction in the 60's. 

Here is the first one star review on Amazon, that, of course, has been swarmed by the collectivist liveral regressive hive; 

One star Review from Quirky Girl

This book begins with painting terrorists as heroes. The Weathermen are responsible for killing many, including police. This is a romantic, Orwellian treatment of cold blooded killers.
I have worked with Honor Flight - a charity dedicated to honoring our Veterans. Our Vets are the true heroes of America, and without them, we would not enjoy the freedom we have today.
Watch the movie: The Barrel of a Gun for an honest look at the Black Panther movement.
Read Man is Moral Choice by Sociologist Professor Albert Hobbs for an honest look at how professors at liberal universities stirred up hate that morphed into violence.
Also, Bill Ayers father was one of the 1%.
BILL AYERS is a limousine revolutionary. From a wealthy Chicago family, raised in rich Chicago suburbs, educated at the best schools, and benefited from connections and privilege wherever he turned. His father, Thomas Ayers, was CEO and president of Commonwealth Edison, Chicago's electric utility company, and sat on several influential boards, including those of the Chicago Tribune, Northwestern University, and the Chicago Symphony. In 1966, Mayor Richard J. Daley enlisted Thomas Ayers, a close friend, to head negotiations with Dr. Martin Luther King for a city-wide open housing agreement. Tom Ayers was so successful at talking out of both sides of his mouth that King claimed victory while, according to local press accounts, Daley could claim he was able to "preserve the segregationist status quo."
Had I read this book without the benefit of researching both sides, I'd have been swayed to believe and sympathized with these "revolutionaries" - however, after researching, I can say with conviction, these "rebels" are terrorists, funded by the wealthy.
A great book to read in order to understand how these movements grow and flourish is Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer."

I was 18 in 1969. Anyone who thinks they have a handle on this period didn't live it. It was a maelstrom, a whirlwind, terrifying, exhilarating, maddening, confusing. In hindsight it's like trying to get a handle on a dream or a nightmare. People were pushed to the extremes if they liked it or not. Families and friends were torn apart by the issues of race, riots, Vietnam, assassinations, drugs, personal appearance. Even the kind of music you listened to became an issue. You were pro-war or you were against it. And if you were against the war and you got a letter from selective service you were forced to decide -- do LBJ's or Nixon's bidding or fight it any way you could. I often hear the old canard about the troops being spat upon when they returned, but in my experience it was the other way around -- it was the anti-war protesters who were reviled, cursed at, spat upon and worse. If you want to believe that our GIs were the real heroes, go ahead, rewrite history and make Vietnam out to be a noble war fought by the most ethical standards of behavior. But that's not how I saw it. I still don't. I believe that I was on the right side of history and don't feel a second of shame for my views or actions.

My reply to Quirky Girl: Your comments are typical of right-wing extremists. Fringe thinking. And by the way, members of the Weather Underground made up less than 1% of the entire anti-war movement.
