Gray Lady praises American terrorist in her death notice

Till death do us part is the motto of what used to be known as mainstream media. It’s now known as corporate media, but its ways haven’t changed one iota.

Even when it comes to obituaries for murderers so gushingly adored by the would-be intellectuals in the hallowed halls of such rags like The New York Times.

Kathy Boudin, she of the Weather Underground terrorist group fame, active participant in a 1981 attack on Brink armoured truck, died.

For those of limited memory span, herewith an encyclopaedic excerpt: the 1981 Brink’s robbery was an armed robbery, with three related murders that had been committed on October 20, 1981. Several Black Liberation Army members and four former members of the Weather Underground, now associated with the May 19th Communist Organisation, took active part.

The conspirators stole $1.6 million in cash from a Brink’s armoured car at the Nanuet Mall, in Nanuet, New York. They killed a Brink’s guard, Peter Paige, seriously wounded Brink’s guard Joseph Trombino, slightly wounded Brink’s truck driver guard, James Kelly, and would go on to kill two Nyack police officers, Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown, and wound seriously Police Detective Artie Keenan.

That it shook the nation at the time seems to be quite obvious.

The Gray Lady saw fit to print the truth in their obituary for Ms. Boudin:

“Kathy Boudin, who as a member of the Weather Underground took part in the murderous 1981 holdup of a Brink’s armoured truck, died on Sunday. She was 78.”

Ooops, the editors who happened to read the obituary frowned. Can’t have that. Too much truth in one paragraph. So, they changed it to read:

“Kathy Boudin, a member of the Weather Underground imprisoned for her role in a fatal robbery but who later helped former inmates, died at 78.”

Done with a fine editing comb, it changed the text completely.

Why did they take the word “murderous” out? Too judgemental, perhaps? Well, there were three murders (and three injuries) involved, weren’t there?

In any case, “fatal robbery” does not raise as many eyebrows, especially if the new wording reads that the late Ms. Boudin played a role, instead of taking part.

Adding a charitative touch, namely, helping former inmates, makes her sound almost like a bloody saint. Murderous psychopathic ideologues usually avoid performing good works at all cost.

Good old communist mass murderer Mao Zedong was “an obscure peasant” who rose to power and “died one of history’s great revolutionary figures,” according to The New York Times, as expressed in an earlier tweet, deleted since then.

Why deleted?

Apparently, way too many started asking questions.

The Washington Post has been more principled than that: when ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Badhdadi went to see his maker, in a visit long overdue, he was an “austere religious scholar,” the Post told their readers.

So far as Iranian general Qassim Suleimani, killed in a U.S. airstrike, the Post mourned: “Qassim Suleimani, Master of Iran’s Intrigue and Force, Dies at 62.”

Compare it to The Washington Post’s parting words for former Cincinnati Bengals head coach Sam Wyche: the coach had been reprimanded for “barring a female reporter from the team’s locker room.”

As if THAT was the reason for the obituary to be published.

This is not a brand new trend. In fact, it’s frightfully logical. Just look at Ms. Boudin’s son Chesa.

His both parents behind bars, their Weather Underground brothers and sisters in terror would take care of him.

With unadulterated success, too: he’s now one of the radical leftist district attorneys bankrolled by George Soros.

Who helped raise him? Why, former President Barrack Hussein Obama’s adviser and ghost writer Bill Ayers, with his wife Bernadine Dohrn’s help.

Nobody has ever asked this intrepid couple to renounce their terror- and violence-filled past. In fact, many believe that they both have got their exalted teaching positions at University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern Law, respectively, specifically because of it.

What’s a bit of subterfuge in a convicted terrorist’s obituary when compared to this trend?

And, besides, de mortuis nihil nisi bonum (of the dead, [say] nothing but good). They can’t defend themselves.

If that is so, here’s some news for you: Soviet founder Vladimir Lenin and Germany’s Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler loved animals (cats for Lenin, dogs for Hitler), while Josif Stalin knew his native Georgian folk songs by heart, and his rendition of Suliko was heart-rending, by all accounts.

Burn in hell, Kathy Boudin.
