What is it about Democratic presidential candidates and terrorists?

What is it about Democratic presidential candidates and terrorists? Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were each famously supportive of ur-terrorist Yassar Arafat. Carter, whose administration never had a discouraging word for Arafat, to this day is carrying water for Hamas, and the most frequent foreign visitor to the Clinton Whitehouse was Arafat.

Hillary showed her undying adoration with her
famous embrace of Suha Arafat, currently living in Paris off the stolen billions of Palestinian aid money her turbaned hubby weaseled away from US taxpayers and gullible trans-national organizations.  And what about those pardons for FALN terrorists?  What was that about? (Here is a complete list of Clinton's pardons-drug dealers, bank robbers, terrorists, counterfeiters, money launderers,  bank fraud specialists...all upstanding citizens no doubt, caught up somehow in over-zealous prosecutions.)  Al Gore, while never publicly endorsed Ted "The Unabomber" Kaczynski, the almost identical texts of the Unabomber's "Manifesto" and Gore's book "Earth in the Balance" are startling. (Go here to take the fun challenge of detecting which quote is from which document).

And while the no one on the left had anything to say about the domestic
eco-terrorists the FBI recently crushed, Bill Clinton openly bragged after the 1996 elections that the Oklahoma City Bombing and the liberal media chorus cinched his re-election:

Clinton openly boasted to reporters after his 1996 re-election that the liberal media scenario for the Oklahoma City bombing (that it was all the work of angry white "right-wingers" goaded by talk radio) turned the tide for him. In fact, I remember liberal media people I talked to at the time who were rubbing their hands with glee at that perceived political angle in all this.

And now of course, thanks to Stanley Kurtz, we find revealed the intimate connection -- whatever denials the Obama campaign attempts -- of Barack Obama and William Ayers, founder of the late 1960's Weather Underground group, responsible for hundreds of bombings, multiple attempted murders, and two accomplished murders to their "credit". All defiantly owned and unapologized for, by the way.  Recall that several of Obama's campaign offices proudly displayed that way cool poster of Che Guevara, Casto's trigger man. 

So, what's the deal with Democratic Presidents and hopefuls connecting so soulfully with terrorists?  It appears the Saul Alinsky hard left has had a gun to the ribs of the more moderate wing of the party for some time, and over time, especially with the advent of the nutroots blogosphere and the ascendancy of the Nancy and Harry Show on Capital Hill, radicals fueled with Soros money have become more and more influential as they have been mainstreamed by the boys and girls of the press.

As Bob Dylan wrote, you don't need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind is blowing (from the song that inspired the name that romantic band of crazy kids took for themselves). And as John Locke before him put it, in language picked up by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration, when a long Train of Actings show the Councils all tending one way, how can a man any more hinder himself from being persuaded in his own mind which way things are going...?

So, the prevailing winds have been leftward, despite the freshet that was the Reagan Revolution. The revelation of this season's Democratic candidate's relation to the hard left has had the effect of a termite inspector's flashlight aimed at the dark underground places no one has been paying attention to these past decades. Turns out all our institutions are infested with hard left radicals, and they have been busily destroying the foundations of our society from within. Maybe they have made their big move too soon, and the American public will recoil at the idea of radical leftists moving into the open in a presidential administration; in which case under the cover of darkness they will continue their slow but steady work of undermining the foundations.

If not, and they manage to get their candidate into the most visible office in the land, get ready for a wicked left turn, as the radicals pour out of the basement and into the rest of the building.
