The Connection between Charles Manson and Barack Obama

Bernardine Dohrn, a radical anti-establishment Leftist associated with the Weathermen Underground, allegedly said the following in relation to Charles Manson to a Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) convention in December 1969 just before she went underground to hide from the FBI for crimes she had committed:

Offing those rich pigs with their own forks and knives, and then eating a meal in the same room, far out! The Weathermen dig Charles Manson.1

Rothman and Lichter tell it a little differently in their book Roots of Radicalism: “Dig it: First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach. Wild!”2 “[T]he stunning result of her words for the rest of the meeting involved attendees flashing each other a finger ‘fork’ as a symbol of solidarity and resolve.” (Manson Blog)

So, what does this have to do with Barack Obama? You may be familiar with the parlor game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. “Name a movie. Then get to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Sometimes it is far fewer than six.” (Gary North) Let’s play Six Degrees of Charles Manson:

As a member of the Weather Underground, Dohrn helped to create a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States government, and was placed on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, where she remained for three years. From 1991 to 2013 she was a Clinical Associate Professor of Law at the Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University School of Law. She is married to Bill Ayers, a co-founder of the Weather Underground, who was formerly a tenured professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

And who is Bill Ayers, and what is his connection to Obama? Did you know that between 1995 and 1999, Barack Obama led the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), which was founded by Ayers and who remained on the board until 2001? (The Hill)

Dohrn and Ayers were and are committed Communists…
