Guess Who's Getting Out? Another Hero of the 60s!

Or maybe that should be "heroine."

Okay, I'll tell you. It's Squeaky Fromme, the Manson family acolyte that camped outside the courtroom, carved an "X" on her head when Charlie and the girls did, and later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford.

What a fun gal.

I wonder if Barack and Michelle Obama's friends Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers will commemorate the occasion--maybe with a cake shaped like a murder victim you can stick a fork in? After all, they were, in the good old days, big fans of the Manson family and its wacky, anti-establishment hijinks.

As that madcap rebel Bernardine put it:

Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!


The Weather Underground were actually quite fond of the Mansonian notion of instigating a race war to destroy the capitalist system (actually they were willing to give a hearing to anything that might destroy the capitalist system):

In 1969, Ayers and his wife convened a "War Council" in Flint Michigan, whose purpose was to launch a military front inside the United States with the purpose of helping Third World revolutionaries conquer and destroy it. Taking charge of the podium, dressed in a high-heeled boots and a leather mini-skirt – her signature uniform – Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast." Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops.

Hey, wait a minute. I think I've heard something like that before. From the mouth of yet another inconvenient yet unrepentant FOO (Friend of Obama). Where was that? Hmmm.....

I remember now! It was THIS guy:

In another sermon...Wright "refers to the U.S. as being under the influence of the Ku Klux Klan."

WRIGHT: And they will not only attack you if you try to point out what's going on in white America, the U.S. of KKK A."

Of course, the Reverend got the line a bit wrong--and in a way that made it kind of nonsensical. Bernardine's version has much more pinache. But, then, maybe, like his parishoner of twenty years, the president of the United States, he wasn't paying close attention the first time he heard it.

All that to say this. Despite a life term, Squeaky is going to be out on August 16. She had to do a little "extra" time (evidently, in California, life is shorter than we thought) for attacking a fellow inmate with a hammer. Also, in 1987, she escaped from prison in an attempt to get closer to Charlie (now there's a goal in life!) She does not appear to be the least bit sorry for her crimes, nor do we have any evidence of a religious conversion or anything like that.

So, I guess she will be coming back into society again, different only in her age (and her ability to wander loose among us.) Like Ayers and Dohrn, she is in her sixties and eligible to become a living legend of the Far Left.

Wonder what she'll get to be Czar of?
