WATCH: Wilkow talks to a former FBI informant about the Weather Underground

On last night’s Wilkow! Andrew took a deeper look into a group that Glenn has been talking about for years – the Weather Underground.

Glenn has helped to make people like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn household names by exposing the radical underpinnings of the group, while Hollywood and the liberal elite have sought to glamorize the domestic terrorist organization with movies like Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep and hiring convicted murderers and former Weathermen to cushy campus positions (a la Kathy Boudin at Columbia University).

Yesterday, Andrew sat down with Larry Grathwohl, author and subject of “Bring Down America: An FBI Informer with the Weathermen.” Grathwohl was an informant for the FBI in 1969 and traveled with the Weathermen as they went underground in 1970. Grathwohl was involved in schemes to blowup police stations and a power plant.

Watch Grathwohl explain how he found himself entrenched with the Weathermen and the extreme ideology of the group’s members in the clips below.

    We have a President allied with radicals, extremists, and terrorists…how long until we have the full government come down hard on the nation, and how long until Obama’s madness is complete and unleashed in a bloodbath?

    The Weather Underground homegrown terrorist, Bill Ayers, Obama’s buddy.  Announced his bid for State Senate in Ayers home.  Doesn’t get any sweeter than that, does it?.

      Obama and the Ayers(the elder) were friends long before that ’95 meeting.

      I don’t know that he “announced” his bid for the senate there—I think that’s where the plan was hatched tho.!

      Then O had the gall to answer a questions about Ayers by–kinda of frowned like he was trying to remember–and then said that he (Ayers) lived in his neighborhood and kinda knew OF him—buuuuuut that they weren’t really friends and didn’t really know him?!?

      If Jesus is coming back–would he please hurry!!

    There is nothing wrong with the Obamas, there just isn’t anything Good or Right with or about the Obamas.

    Thank you for doing this show. I have always found it peculiar that Charles Manson’s Helter Skelter closely mimicked the SDS and Weather Underground plan and that it occurred in 1969, at the height of the SDS movement. If you read Manson’s reasoning behind Helter Skelter and then couple it with Bernadine Dohrn’s remarks about the murders, it seems more than a coincidence. I have always wondered if Manson came into contact with an SDS member in prison and got the idea from them to start a race riot and bring down the USA.

    And black is White and White is Black! Larry Grathwohl is absolutely right. We have the criminals in the White House and the Justice Department and Homeland Security and in our educatonal institutions now and people are wondering why we, the lawabiding Americans, are getting upset about what is going on! Does our U.S. Constitution, the law of our land, mean anything to anyone anymore? Why is it okay for the Black Panthers to stand outside a poll station and intimidate voters whereas the government is putting people like Ron Paul and the Tea Party and Christians who believe in the Bible on terrorist lists and equating them to the Islamist terrorists who are murdering Christians throughout the world as we speak? Why is it okay for this government to arm the al Qaeda rebels in Syria via Turkey who are the very people we were fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, and who have murdered 100,000 people there? And now we’re giving these terrorist sophisticated weapons that thy wil turn around and use on our troops? Why is it okay for this government to send our taxpayer dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist Morsi in Egypt and arm him with fighter jets and tanks? Why is okay that they have gotten away with Benghazi where they were arming the Islamist enemy there as well, and actually sat back and watched four Americans die? Why is it okay that this government got away with Fast and Furious where they armed the drug cartels and got Americans killed with the same guns they armed them with?

    Let’s face it. The same criminals who were blowing up things in the 70s are the same criminals who are in the government and the educational institutions today. It is ludicrous.

    As I said, Black is now White, and White is now Black. Everything is upside down. And what is going to come of it? Absolutely nothing good, that’s for sure.

    Criminals who have gotten away with their crimes are waiting to commit new ones.

      He’s got more than one supporter, don’t worry.

  • Sharmane

    The unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, along with his nitwit cohort Bernadette Dohrn, former associates of Obama.  Enough said.

    Yup! Keep fighting against an organization that disbanded 40 years ago! Nice work!

    Mr. Grathwohl is THE MAN.
