I try to never take anything for granted. Doubting Thomas, don’t you know? So, when I read Attack and Dethrone God? (insanitybytes2.wordpress.com), I did a little research online. Apparently, a fellow named Terry Turchie started this latest hullaballoo on “The Ingraham Angle” (‘Attack & Dethrone God’ Is Goal of Protests, Says Former FBI Agent Terry Turchie (heavy.com)). So now the Liberal Democrat news media is deriding the whole idea.
heavy.com provides an example, pointing to the manifesto of the Weather Underground, “Praire Fire” (see https://archive.org/stream/PrairieFire_20170422/Prairie-fire_djvu.txt). Heavy complains “Praire Fire” never uses the phrase “attack and dethrone God”, but “Praire Fire” is an openly Communist publication. Communists see religion as an instrument of oppression. They demand atheism. They punish those with religious beliefs.
Here is heavy.com’s relevant excerpt (from page 46) that shows the worst the Weather Underground had to say about religion.
Historically, the cultural and social justification of slavery had been religious. This was true during the Crusades in Europe and in the Mideast, and was carried by feudal Spain into its conquests in the Caribbean and South arid Central America. Religion was the main ideological control of feudal society and early capitalism. Chattel slavery was defended as the means of saving the souls of “ignorant heathens” from eternal hell-fire by giving them the “blessing” of Christianity.
The authors of “Praire Fire” equate religion with oppression.
Supposedly, the Weather Underground is dead, but the small number of people who made up that organization are not. Moreover, the sixties radicals include more people than just those people. So, it is silly to say the Weather Underground is without influence. Barack Obama garnered support from Bill Ayers.
Barack Obama’s first run for the Illinois state Senate was launched at a famous fundraiser and kickoff for the campaign at a 1995 gathering at the house of Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, says Kurtz.(https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/32072-obama-and-bill-ayers-together-from-the-beginning)
Think about this.
Ayers is a retired professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Education. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Ayers#Academic_career)
What kind of university hires a crazy bomb throwing communist to design curriculum and instruct children? Yet those are the people running our public schools.
In 1991, Dohrn was hired by Northwestern University School of Law as an adjunct professor. Her title was “Clinical Associate Professor of Law”. She was one of the founders of the Children and Family Justice Center in the Bluhm Legal Clinic at Northwestern Law.

What kind of law school hires a terrorist who was on the FBI’s most wanted list?
