On “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, The Daily Caller’s senior editor, Jamie Weinstein, discussed TheDC’s Sunday night dinner with former Weather Underground leaders and friends of President Obama Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.
TheDC’s editor-in-chief, Tucker Carlson, won a charity auction to dine, along with five guests, with the two unrepentant radicals. Besides Carlson and Weinstein, the dinner included online media mogul Andrew Breitbart, Daily Caller columnist and Weekly Standard senior writer Matt Labash, Carlson’s brother, Buckley, and a Daily Caller contest winner.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, both Ayers and Dohrn were leaders of the communist, terrorist organization Weather Underground — a splinter group from the radical Students for a Democratic Society. The Weather Underground conducted a terrorist bombing campaign with the goal of ending the U.S. war against communist Vietnam. Attack targets included the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and at least one police station. The two married while on the run from the FBI in the early ’70s.
Check back with TheDC Tuesday morning to see a detailed write-up of the event.
