A historical perspective of Democratic tolerance for left-wing terrorism:

In 1983, current House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler beseeched President Clinton to pardon convicted terrorist Susan Rosenberg, who placed a bomb outside the U.S. Senate chamber in 1983 in a failed objective to massacre Republican senators. 

On Jan. 20, 2001, Clinton granted the Rosenberg pardon. By pure happenstance, her Capitol assault caused no deaths as the blast shattered the second floor of the Senate wing.

Smithsonian historian William Rosenau described Rosenberg’s terrorist group, M19, so labeled to honor the shared May 19 birthdays of Malcolm X and Ho Chi Minh, as an “offshoot” of the Weather Underground, the domestic terror group led by Bill Ayers, co-founder of the Weather Underground. Ayers bombed the Pentagon and, yes, the Capitol as well in the 1970s; prosecutorial misconduct shielded him from prosecution. Ayers currently resides serenely as a prominent academic. Ayers openly associated with President Barack Obama prior to his presidency.

The Rosenberg absolution depicts a swelling succession of left-wing terrorist achievements either forgiven or sanctioned by Democrats and their collaborators in the corporate media. The 2020 summer mayhems in our cities adds additional illustrations of progressive reports of ostensibly “peaceful protests” embracing looting, violence, death and destruction.

Nadler, house judiciary chair, is righteously outraged at the recent Capitol mayhem, as many of us are, while compassionately exonerating Rosenberg for her heinous endeavor to assassinate United State Senators.

This editorial is a good example of comparing apples and oranges. Rosenberg was imprisoned in 1984 and was sentenced to 58 years in prison when she was found with explosives in her possession. She went to prison and served 16 years. She was pardoned by Clinton. I don’t see the current situation as very similar. No one has been sent to jail. No one has served time for their actions. The democrats did not keep her from going to jail. Enough of a case was made that she had rehabilitated in prison after 16 years. After her release, she went on to become a noted author, educator and a poet. She continues her activism. If we want to compare situations it would help to have the current group of terrorists to spend their 16 years in prison first.
