Bill Ayers and the Boston Bombings: Why the Next Stop for Dzokhar Tsarnaev Might be a Position with NYU

Liberal apologists are already out in full-force - blaming anything and everything (except Islamic extremism, of course) for the terrorist acts of Dzokhar Tsarnaev.

Apologist narratives range from suggesting "he was brain-washed by his brother," to the outlandish conspiracy theory that the suspects were "wrongly accused," to the #freejahar hashtag trending on Twitter, to idiotic poems expressing empathy, to the President of the United States (after learning the bombers weren't TEA Party members as he'd originally thought/hoped) urging Americans not to extrapolate any broad conclusions or reasonable connections between these attackers and their religion - you know, because it's a "religion of peace," or something.

Of course, none of this should be surprising.

We're talking about the same subset of the political sphere which has not only forgiven the likes of Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and Kathy Boudin for the terroristic bombings (and potential murder) they committed as part of the Weather Underground during the early 1970s, but these terrorists are now given prominent positions within Liberal universities.

So, I have to ask: Is there a professor position at the likes of NYU waiting for Dzokhar Tsarnaev in the not too distant future? If NYU is willing to hire Kathy Boudin as a scholar-in-residence, why not Tsarnaev?

Consider the lessons learned from our nation's handling of the Weather Underground, via The Daily Beast:
"They might have been violent charlatans, but they were violent charlatans in search of a better society. They might resist providing a full and proper accounting of their crimes, but most will concede that their tactics might have been misguided and offer qualified repentance, but insist that their instincts were correct.
"So go ahead and commit a crime, 'expropriate' a bank. Just make sure you leave an incoherent manifesto at the scene, claiming that you’re shooting your guns and filling your pockets with loot for the people. When caught, you won’t be a convicted murderer, but a 'political prisoner.' And when released, you can be a college professor."
Disgraceful.

** NOTE: The title of this article could have equally highlighted Minnesota State University Moorhead, University of Illinois at Chicago, Columbia University, or any number of other Liberal universities which have shamelessly decided to give gainful positions of employment to convicted terrorists.
