Homegrown Us Terrorism
Before planes flew into buildings, the US had a few taste of terroristic activitities. Groups like the Black Liberation Army, Jewish Defense League and the Weathermen (Weather Underground) exploded their fair share of bombs before any jihad.
Imagine the following communique' as it was called:
|Hello. This is Bernardine Dohrn.|
I'm going to read A DECLARATION OF A STATE OF WAR.
This is the first communication from the Weatherman underground.
All over the world, people fighting Amerikan imperialism look to
Amerika's youth to use our strategic position behind enemy lines to join
forces in the destruction of the empire.
Black people have been fighting almost alone for years. We've known that
our job is to lead white kids into armed revolution. We never intended
to spend the next five or twenty-five years of our lives in jail. Ever
since SDS became revolutionary, we've been trying to show how it is
possible to overcome the frustration and impotence that comes from
trying to reform this system. Kids know the lines are drawn revolution
is touching all of our lives. Tens of thousands have learned that
protest and marches don't do it. Revolutionary violence is the only way.
Now we are adapting the classic guerrilla strategy of the Viet Cong and
the urban guerrilla strategy of the Tupamaros to our own situation here
in the most technically advanced country in the world.
Che taught us that "revolutionaries move like fish in the sea." The
alienation and contempt that young people have for this country has
created the ocean for this revolution.
The hundreds and thousands of young people who demonstrated in the
Sixties against the war and for civil rights grew to hundreds of
thousands in the past few weeks actively fighting Nixon's invasion of
Cambodia and the attempted genocide against black people. The insanity
of Amerikan "justice" has added to its list of atrocities six blacks
killed in Augusta, two in Jackson and four white Kent State students,
making thousands more into revolutionaries.
The parents of "privileged" kids have been saying for years that the
revolution was a game for us. But the war and the racism of this society
show that it is too ######ed-up. We will never live peaceably under this
This was totally true of those who died in the New York townhouse
explosion. The third person who was killed there was Terry Robbins, who
led the first rebellion at Kent State less than two years ago.
The twelve Weathermen who were indicted for leading last October's riots
in Chicago have never left the country. Terry is dead, Linda was
captured by a pig informer, but the rest of us move freely in and out of
every city and youth scene in this country. We're not hiding out but
There are several hundred members of the Weatherman underground and some
of us face more years in jail than the fifty thousand deserters and
draft dodgers now in Canada. Already many of them are coming back to
join us in the underground or to return to the Man's army and tear it up
from inside along with those who never left.
We fight in many ways. Dope is one of our weapons. The laws against
marijuana mean that millions of us are outlaws long before we actually
split. Guns and grass are united in the youth underground.
Freaks are revolutionaries and revolutionaries are freaks. If you want
to find us, this is where we are. In every tribe, commune, dormitory,
farmhouse, barracks and townhouse where kids are making love, smoking
dope and loading guns-fugitives from Amerikan justice are free to go.
For Diana Oughton, Ted Gold and Terry Robbins, and for all the
revolutionaries who are still on the move here, there has been no
question for a long time now-we will never go back.
Within the next fourteen days we will attack a symbol or institution of
Amerikan injustice. This is the way we celebrate the example of Eldridge
Cleaver and H. Rap Brown and all black revolutionaries who first
inspired us by their fight behind enemy lines for the liberation of
Never again will they fight alone.

Audio from 1982 that will blow your mind
The President and all of the people who shrug off claims that radicals and revolutionaries are in and around this White House probably haven't heard this audio from 1982. It's from an FBI agent who had been undercover working to get info on Bill Ayers's domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground. The FBI agent talks about what the group said after he asked what they will do if they achieve their takeover of the United States government. The answer explains why the mainstream media never bothered to show it. Ref. Source 3
