Question for the day.

How many years has it been since there was a left wing terrorist killing in the US?

Digby at Hullabaloo




Good question. Anybody have an answer?

Last ones I can think of would be the Weather Underground in the sixties who never managed to blow anything up but themselves or whoever it was who kidnapped Patty Hearst. I suppose you might label the ecoterrorists as left wing, but they really really concentrate on property damage and seem to make deliberate if not always successful effort to avoid loss of life, so compared to Timothy McVeigh or Scott Roeder, there really isn't a comparison.

Still looking for examples from those more knowledgeable.... ;o)
