To Hire a Murderer

Convicted cop killer and Weather Underground terrorist Kathy Boudin is now teaching as an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s notorious School of Social Work, the New York Post revealed.

Amazingly, the communist revolutionary had been lecturing at the school for several years unnoticed by the media until now. She serves as director of the school’s “Criminal Justice Initiative.”

There’s no question Boudin has expertise in criminality — after years as a fugitive, she served 22 years in prison for her role in an assault on an armored-car in which two police officers and a Brinks security guard died. She also has longstanding ties to Columbia, having plotted with her Weather Underground comrades in 1970 to plant bombs in Butler Library on the university’s Morningside Heights campus.

After years of lying low, Boudin, now 69 years of age, has been thrust back into the spotlight as grizzled leftist director Robert Redford prepares to release his new movie, The Company You Keep, based on a novel about Weather Underground fugitives. Boudin was also recently named the Rose Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence by New York University Law School. Last month at NYU she delivered a lecture on “the politics of parole and re-entry.”

Boudin was paroled in 2003 after telling officials that she took part in the $1.6 million robbery because she felt guilty for being white. Security guard Peter Paige and Nyack, N.Y. police officers Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady died in the 1981 attack. Nine children subsequently grew up without their fathers.

The crime that Boudin participated in was a joint action by the Black Liberation Army and May 19th Communist Organization. It was perpetrated to raise money for an insurgency against the U.S. government.

Boudin’s boyfriend at the time David Gilbert, also complicit in the robbery, remains in prison. Wholly unrepentant, he still writes self-important, pompous propaganda pamphlets romanticizing his wasted life.

Chesa Boudin, the illegitimate son of Gilbert and Boudin, was raised by Weather Underground leaders and Obama buddies Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Somehow the son received a Rhodes scholarship — and despite his lack of talent his political views and radical pedigree make him a shoo-in for a devalued cultural ornament such as a MacArthur “Genius Grant” or Nobel Peace Prize in the near future.

Kathy Boudin and the Columbia School of Social Work did not respond to a request for comment, but Associate Dean Marianne Yoshioka spoke to the New York Post. Yoshioka, who reportedly hired Boudin way back in 2008, said the Marxist murderer has been “an excellent teacher who gets incredible evaluations from her students each year.”

“Of the hundreds of students Boudin has taught, Yoshioka said, just three have expressed qualms about her criminal background, and only one ‘switched out’ of a class because of those concerns,” according to the newspaper.

Of course, Boudin has an appropriate academic background for the School of Social Work. She received one of the most worthless advanced academic degrees America has to offer — the education doctorate (Ed.D.) — from Teachers College, Columbia University. Bill Ayers received his Ed.D. from the same school two decades earlier.

The schools of the Ivy League, and Columbia University in particular, have long been friendly to America’s enemies, both foreign and domestic.

The name of the Columbia School of Social Work, an indoctrination factory for those determined to poison the minds of the young, has long been synonymous with sedition and treason.

At Columbia, social work isn’t about helping people and the school doesn’t even pretend to educate students. The school’s website greets visitors with, “Would you like to become a social change agent and leader? Consider applying to Columbia University School of Social Work.”

The neo-communist apostles of depravity and engineered social collapse, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, both taught at the Columbia University School of Social Work in the 1960s.

But even before that tumultuous decade, Columbia opened its doors to anti-American totalitarians. In the 1920s the campus hosted “Casa Italiana,” which served as an outreach office for the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini. Columbia honored Iran’s Jew-hating, Holocaust-denying president, Mahmoud Ahmedinajad, inviting him to give a keynote address in 2007.

The faculty has long had a fondness for cop killers and those who love them.

Death row groupie Marc Lamont Hill, whose love of cop killers manifested itself in an ode to Mumia abu-Jamal, and revolutionary Angela Davis are scheduled to speak at the social work school on Friday at “Beyond the Bars: Moving Forward.” It’s the third annual conference on criminal justice organized by students and faculty at the school.

Davis ran for Vice President in 1980 and 1984 on the Communist Party USA ticket. Before that she traveled to the Soviet bloc and did extensive propaganda for America’s enemies at the time. Stateside, when she was young Davis attended New York’s Little Red Schoolhouse, known for its Communist teachers and student body, at the same time as Boudin.

Boudin’s hire by a prestigious university was only a matter of time. In the morally topsy-turvy world of Columbia, the blood on Boudin’s hands is a “selling point, not something from which to recoil in disgust and horror,” as one pundit notes.

That Boudin killed police officers is impressive enough to left-wingers, but add in the fact that she did it for political reasons and you may have an academic superstar in the making.

    But….isn't she still white?

    • kasandra

      I believe one of the police officers she murdered was the first black on the Nyack police force. So, let's see, because she felt guilty for being white, she killed a black pioneer. Makes about as much sense to me as most of leftist "thought."

    Seems the more prestigious the school, the more communists are graduates. We all hated our Government at least once in our lives, but to bomb,kill,and then get an award for it is just plain stupid. I would hope that someday they will all rot in HELL.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Don't you mean the more professors are communists.

    Boudin was paroled in 2003 after telling officials that she took part in the $1.6 million robbery because she felt guilty for being white.

    The woman robbed because she felt guilty for being white? Is she insane? What garbage is this cop killer teaching Columbia University students? Instead of robbing and murdering, why was she not doing something to help the many hundreds of thousands who have been taken for slaves by Muslims?

    Hanoi Jane Fonda, seeking some sort of pass for her incident in North Vietnam, where she was photographed sitting on a NVA anti-aircraft cannon, has just reportedly said (on "Oprah") that she will go to her grave with that "unforgiveable mistake" on her conscience.

    Yes, Jane, it was unforgiveable.

    No, Jane, it was no mistake. You did it knowlingly and intelligently.

    I do indeed hope that you will go to your grave with that incident on your mind. It branded you for what you are for life, so it's fully deserved. It was one thing to be against the war; it was another to embrace our enemies.

    I'm glad you're sorry. You should be. And stop the endless phony "apologies." No one is deceived by them, and if you had any integrity at all, you'd realize how demeaning they are. At least you could have the courage to stand by what you did and what you are.

      Jane should have been deported to Hanoi. And Boudin should still be in prison. What is our country coming to.

    Boudin…isn't that a type of cheap sausage? Fitting name.

  • Eva

    Boudin… a worthless waste of a human life… How sad… You would think someone in their 60's would try to gain some wisdom, get closer to God, re-evaluate his/her life… I guess, it's not the case here.

    • Andy

      I wonder if its a case of he`s still desperately trying to justify it otherwise he has to admit to himself that he`s been conned into wasting his life for a lie?

  • Zombee

    No wonder the lapdog media has buried Obama's history and time that he spent at Columbia. Radicals of a feather flock together like buzzards to a rotting corpse . Columbia is a despicable commie cabal that needs to be confronted, opposed and run out of town on a rail. Don't send your child and tuition dollars to these red vermin.

  • RUI

    Next step: Boudin converts to Islam.

    Shocker!

  • Ghostwriter

    Why would ANY university would want to hire someone like her?

  • pinnie

    Who the hell would pay, to have thier kid taught by a murderer of Public Servants?

    Ayers, Boudin,Dorn, …any involved in a murder inc. group, should be shunned and in a soup line…..

    .Libs, progressives=Commies havent a conscience. The very people that would help them ,if necessary, they kill…..with glee and awards?

    Its a new form of "Insanity" In the mean time, they get to do it all in the most beautiful country in all the world

  • Zombee

    Radicals and commie subversives flock together at Columbia University of Radicals . Now we know why the liberal lapdog media never vetted Barack Hussein Obama. Columbia is cesspool of subversives, terrorists and ex-con's. Stop supporting Columbia's destruction of our republic with your tuition dollars.
