The Weather Underground and Hamilton College

From http://thedailypolemic.blogs.com/rand/2005/02/hamilton_colleg.html I have edited this by removing paragraphs that would have made my own post way too long, so please visit the actual blog link above to read the entire article.

I guess we can now assume that Ward Churchill was not really lying when he claimed to have taught the Weather Underground how to build bombs. This connection is not only extremely interesting, but also extremely disturbing. It means that his ties to known terrorist organizations are quite, quite real--and yet Betsy Hoffman, whose salary comes partially out of my pocket, continues to rant that she will not fire this man based on speech. No one's asking you to, Betsy. We're asking that you fire him for cause, for being an admitted member of a terrorist organization (the Weather Underground), for resume fraud, for plagiarism, for grade intimidation, for copyright infringement, for teaching a man how to turn himself into a suicide bomber on Wall Street. Surely somewhere in that litany of things must be something that C.U. would consider to be conduct unbecoming a tenured member of the faculty.

By now, it is well known that New York state's Hamilton College invited, then uninvited, to its campus a radical professor who has repeatedly stated the victims of 9/11 deserved to die. What is less well known is that the professor who sponsored Ward Churchill's talk has a long history of radicalizing her college, shares ideological and family ties to domestic terrorists -- and is still being well-compensated for her efforts to spread anti-American hatred among that college's student body.

Nancy Rabinowitz, who started teaching at Hamilton in 1978, is Hamilton College's professor of Comparative Literature and director of the campus’ Kirkland Project for the Study of Gender, Society and Culture. In addition to the Ward Churchill invitation, Rabinowitz extended a job offer to domestic terrorist and last-minute Clinton pardon recipient Susan Rosenberg on behalf of the Kirkland Project.

How radical are her beliefs?

However, Rabinowitz's ties to violent anti-Americanism go beyond mere emotional support; she has family ties to those who seek to overthow our government. Her father-in-law was renowned Communist proponent and lawyer Victor Rabinowitz, whose law firm -- Rabinowitz, Boudin, Standard, Krinsky and Lieberman -- has represented domestic terrorists, accused spies, and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Rabinowitz defended his partner Leonard Boudin’s daughter and Weather Underground member Kathy Boudin, who was personally involved with the murders of three policemen. Throughout the 1970’s, the Weather Underground was responsible for the bombings of the National Guard offices in Washington, D.C.; the U.S. Capitol Building; the New York City Police Headquarters; and the Pentagon. (Susan Rosenberg belonged to a group closesly associated with the Weathermen.)

Who did her father-in-law primarily represent?

Victor Rabinowitz’s law firm served as the primary counsel to the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee (NECLC), an organization that filled its ranks with members of the Communist Party, and sought to represent radicals individuals and groups seeking to destroy the U.S. Constitution. In the early 1960’s, Rabinowitz was identified in Senate testimony as being a member of the Communist Party USA.

And look who she tried to slip into a teaching position at Hamilton:

. . . In 2004, Hamilton’s Kirkland Project director offered a teaching position to domestic terrorist Susan Rosenberg -- a member of “The Family,” a radical left-wing terrorist group that was affiliated with the Weather Underground.

If in doubt, here's her background:

In 1981, Rosenberg became a suspect in the robbery of an armored car, which resulted in the deaths of two police officers and an armed guard. She was indicted for both the plotting of the robbery and driving the getaway car; however, these charges were later dropped, when, in 1984, she was sentenced to 58 years in Federal prison for the illegal possession of dynamite and weapons.
