Left-wing terrorist Bernadine Dohrn is deeply worried about those violent and dangerous Tea Partiers

Here’s Bernadine Dohrn, wife of Barack Obama’s good buddy and former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers and a terrorist leader in her own right, complaining about how scary those fascist tea partiers are or something:

Dave Weigel makes the most pertinent observation here:

Leaving aside the irony of one of the New Left’s worst people worrying about right-wing terrorism, isn’t one of the stories of 2010 that right-wing anger was basically just channeled into the election? I’m glad the Southern Poverty Law Center exists, glad it monitors the upticks in right-wing violence, but it’s telling that the Huffington Post’s rundown of “far-right violence” stretched to include the jackass Rand Paul supporter who stepped on a MoveOn.org protester. I don’t think that supporter is likely to climb a bell tower at take shots at liberals.
