“Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer with the Weathermen” – Book Review

In the late 1960’s, Larry Grathwald infiltrated the Weather Underground terrorist group. While working undercover for the FBI, Grathwald mingled with the likes of the husband-and-wife team of Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, both of whom conspired to overturn the American government and turn American into a Communist/Socialist state.

 Several Americans were killed and millions of dollars of property destroyed due to bombings by the Weather Underground that were ordered by Ayres and Dohrn.

 In 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb at a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket affair confrontation between labor supporters and the Chicago police.[12] The blast broke almost 100 windows and blew pieces of the statue onto the nearby Kennedy Expressway.[13] (The statue was rebuilt and unveiled on May 4, 1970, and blown up again by other Weathermen on October 6, 1970.

 During one of Weather Underground’s meetings, Dohrn praised the murder of actress Sharon Tate by Charles Manson’s Satanic group.

 Dohrn said,”First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into the pig Tate’s stomach! Wild!”

 At another meeting, Dohrn read a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States government, and was placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, where she remained for three years.

As for Ayers, he remains unrepentant. In 2004, Ayers was asked in an interview, “How do you feel about what you did? Would you do it again under similar circumstances?”

 He replied, “I’ve thought about this a lot. Being almost 60, it’s impossible to not have lots and lots of regrets about lots and lots of things, but the question of did we do something that was horrendous, awful? … I don’t think so. I think what we did was to respond to a situation that was unconscionable.”

 The scary thing is that both Dohrn and Ayers are still around, and still influential, and to some, they are considered heroes.

 Ayers is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar.

 Dohrn is an Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law and the immediate past Director of Northwestern’s Children and Family Justice Center.

 “Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer with the Weathermen” is riveting and scary, and a must-read for those for those who want the truth about home-grown terrorists, who seek to take down the United States of America, and especially our core values.

  1. Sickening…
    Without any regard to background, people in and outside of our country continue to buy their way into our high office/judicial, and educational systems and become “professors” to our youth.
