Ayers, Dohrn, Weather Underground planned American genocide

It's all in the book, Prairie Fire. Zombie found a copy of the book. (One of a long list of dedicatees is Sirhan Sirhan.)

Confederate Yankee found documentary film footage of an an FBI informant describing what he had heard in the Weather Underground meetings. They had big dreams. Quote from the clip:

I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.
This is socialist thinking. Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin; for the greater good. Socialists just do not see human beings, other than themselves, of course. Hence the willingness to "spread the wealth." Those doing the spreading have to take some off the top, though. And since wealth creation is likely to stop once the spreading starts, it gets spread awful thin after the first few passes. If there's not enough to go around, it can be made to cover a larger percentage of the (remaining) population by reducing the population. Which would be why socialist revolutionaries want to kill the rich, not just take their stuff.

There is so much disputation about the definition of socialism that it might be worthwhile to quote Ayers's definition, from Prairie Fire:
Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the eradication of the social system based on profit. Socialism means control of the productive forces for the good of the whole community instead of the few who live on hilltops and in mansions. Socialism means priorities based on human need instead of corporate greed. Socialism creates the conditions for a decent and creative quality of life for all.
"Violent … dictatorship … eradication … control …" leads to "decent and creative," somehow. This has got to be good. Right?

Update: Listening to McCain speak at a rally in Hershey, Pa., I'm pleased to hear him hit this note: "He's running to spread wealth—I'm running to create wealth."

Another update: Bob Owens (Confederate Yankee) has a new interview with Larry Grathwohl, the FBI informant quoted above, at PJ Media.

And another update: I didn't want to link to this; so I'll link to Victoria, instead. Bill Ayers's blog.
