…We begin with a brief, somewhat sterile history of the terrorist group The Weathermen Underground, founded by Bill Ayers.

1969 – 1981

Bill Ayers, son of philanthropist Thomas Ayers, creates terrorist group The Weathermen Underground (WU) in Chicago, home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

The “Days of Rage” riots began when the WU blew up a statue dedicated to Chicago’s policemen in retaliation for beating several demonstrators. The shockwave shattered hundreds of windows.

Statue rebuilt and blown up the next year by the WU.

The statue was rebuilt and provided 24 hour security.

WU bombed home of a New York City judge involved in black panther case.

WU set off a bomb in a bathroom of the Pentagon.

WU set off a bomb at New York State Department of Correction.

1970 Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn go underground. Dorhn on FBI’s 10 most wanted list.

March 8, 1970, three members of WU killed while trying to make a nail bomb.

September 1970 helped drug lord escape from prison and hid him out.

1976-1977 federal charges dropped against Ayers and Dohrn due to prosecutorial misconduct.


1980 Ayers and Dorhns come out of hiding and turn themselves in.

1981 marks official end of WU when WU member Kathy Boudin commits armed robbery and kills three men.

“Guilty as hell. Free as a bird. America is a great country,” Ayers said when interviewed by David Horowitz.
