I believe this can be summed up quite simply put.
The whole point of the Weathermen was that they attacked in retaliation for imperialist actions by the United states government using their military
might to commit crimes against the people of the world. they issued statements and warnings ahead of all bombings, and noone was ever killed as a
result (save for an accident which claimed the lives of three of their own).
Violence aside, this organization shared the same beliefs that many, I would say hundreds, if not thousands of ATS members share, and post on a daily
basis. In a time of conflict however, they declared a direct war against the criminals, attacking their bases of power within our borders.
As time has shown, not the best way to go about changin your government. Although many would disgress.
I believe that perhaps Obama shares the same views, that the Federal government of the US has become far too corrupted and imperialistic in world
affairs, as well as domestic ones.
However, two men, be they friends or not, may share the same views, and passionatly feel and take two completely different solutions to solve the
problem. I dont see Obama as a fanatical by association, because then you would support hampering the liberties of members of ATS for sharing the same
views. You do not have to be radical to agree your governing body has become corrupted and needs change.
They tried to make him a terrorist by name, and it failed.
They tried to make him a terrorist by religion (lies), it too failed.
They now try to make him a terrorist by association, it too will fail.
The attacks are betting on the fears of the ignorant. But as the truth is revealed, and the record is set straight, they lose their credibility with
each fear mongering attack. They want you to be afraid of him, to be afraid of change.
Well noone is buying it anymore, we all know it is nothing but dirty tricks. Half-truths and whole lies.
