Zombie, With a Little Help From Its Friends, Finds This

The image on the left shows the Weather Underground Organization logo in 1975, and the Obama for President campaign logo in 2008. (from Zombie).

Once again, Zombie uncovers what our press should. He/She/It, along with 'Sharmuta' and 'ExperiencedTraveler' (LGF), discovered a rare copy of the first issue of Weatherunderground newspaper, Osawatomie.

From the Zomblog:

Much of Osawatomie, which was written at a time when the Dohrn-Ayers wing of the Weather Underground was transitioning from terrorism to “working from the inside” for revolution, concerns itself with the need to encourage “organizers” who will work in “communities” and use “audacity” to bring about “socialism” in America.

Don’t believe me? Read the quotes for yourself, and see them in context on the full pages below.

Rather than analyze the significance of the parallels between the ideas in Osawatomie, Barack Obama’s personal history as a “community organizer,” and the strategies, slogans and goals of his campaign for the presidency, I will let you the reader decide for yourself.

In 2009, Ayers and Dohn have another book slated to be published. Notice the symbol in the middle? Strikingly familiar, isn't it.

Please go read the whole thing and share with all your friends.
