Marilyn Katz: Self described Marxist and former head of security for the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS.) She was a major player in the ’68 riots at the DNC in Chicago. She was a sorority girl turned mouthpiece of a terrorist organization turned anti-capitalist capitalist communist.
Read on, she’s been a major player in positioning the Manchurian president we have now.
Today, many claim that SDS was a “peaceful organization.” Take Marilyn Katz, who oversaw SDS security during the 1968 Chicago riots.
During the “Chicago Seven” trials, a police officer testified that on one chaotic night in Lincoln Park, Ms. Katz briefed a group of protesters on a new addition to their arsenal of anarchy — guerrilla nails.
“She had two types,” the officer recounted. “One was a cluster of nails that were sharpened at both ends and fastened in the center. It looked like they were welded or soldered. She said these were good for throwing or putting underneath tires. She showed another set that was the same type of nails, sharpened, but they were put through a Styrofoam cylinder. There was a weight put through the middle, another nail, held together with something that looked like liquid solder.”
Katz was communications director for Chicago Mayor Harold Washington. And is now owner of a communications firm and a paid, registered lobbyist, as well as a close personal friend of the Obamas. So much for her anti-capitalism marxist philosophy, eh?
Her list of friends is a Who’s Who of the powerful elite in Chicago, Washington and the White House.
Don Rose, another SDS member and avowed Marxist, who coined the famous battle cry of the ’68 riots – “the whole world is watching” – is a close friend and comrade of Katz and the mentor of David Axelrod. The three of them have a friendship and history that spans some 30 years.
Katz has long been acquainted with Obama supporter and former Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers. In April 2008 Katz told the Chicago Sun-Times that she had first met Ayers when he was a 17-year-old fellow member of Students for a Democratic Society, “a peaceful group from which the Weather Underground splintered.” (emphasis added) from DiscoverTheNetworks.org
It was Katz who organized the anti-Iraq war demonstration in Chicago, 2002 where Obama made his first anti-war speech. He was an invited speaker. It was his coming out party. And it was a speech that Obama referred to many times in his presidential campaign. Marilyn Katz, one of the event’s organizers, recalls the audience’s reaction. “The crowd was pretty much transfixed,” she said.
… Katz, a lifelong socialist revolutionary who said last August that she “probably” rejects violence, is a close friend of Jarrett — and of Barack and Michelle Obama. She even visited the White House this July.
It was Katz who introduced Michelle Obama to Valerie Jarret and the “very sophisticated inner social circle” of Chicago elite Marxists. … Michelle “was recognized as brilliant and beautiful, and immediately accepted into a very sophisticated social circle.”
[Liza] Mundy [biographer of Michelle Obama] writes Michelle “and Barack…enjoyed a range of relations with people who shared their lifestyle, as well as their progressive views and political involvement. ‘These are folks,’ says Marilyn Katz, a member of their social circle, ‘who talk to their friends a number of times a day.” Katz repaid her friend by becoming a campaign bundler for Obama ‘08.
…And possibly trying to buy Jarrett a senate seat. Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has indicated, after Obama’s presidential election, Katz contacted his wife, Patti, with a deal to name Valerie Jarrett to the open senate seat in exchange for a White House payoff, brokered through SEIU.
Despite the controversy, in late July Katz joined Valerie Jarrett and Susan Sher in Washington for the Obama administration’s celebration of the 37th anniversary of Title IX.
Given her radical history (beginning with SDS during the Days of Rage) and close association with our president and first lady, it may be that Katz helped introduce or reinforce [Dr. Quentin] Young’s arguments [for universal heath care] to the Obamas. They could have been sold socialist ideology by any number of their friends, acquaintances, and contacts. The relationship of Katz, Jarrett, Ayers, the Obamas, Young, Carl Davidson, the New Party, the late Rabbi Arnold Wolf, and many others are as hazy as they are disconcerting. It seems a constellation of Marxists hovers over the first couple at all times — and this is not by chance.
By all accounts, the Obamas are close with their friends — including Katz. The nation is at peril when the White House has an unrepentant ’60s radical on speed dial. NewsRealBlog.com
