U.S. universities turn out radicals

The Boston Marathon bombers were homegrown terrorists. But why didn't someone go to the authorities when these bombers started spouting hatred for America and capitalism?
The reason is that modern universities teach the same type of vitriol like the Seattle May Day march did shouting "down with the bourgeoisie." The students learn revolutionary terms that are then infused into their lexicon at our higher education institutions.
The "students" in or around colleges today have as their teacher's people like Bill Ayers, the 1969 Weather Underground founder, retired professor of the University of Illinois at Chicago, a self-described communist revolutionary, and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, now a professor at Northwestern. Also, Columbia University has adjunct professor Kathy Boudin who was released from prison in 2003 for felony murder for her part in the killing of two police officers in 1984. What are these people teaching?
They teach 1960s anti-American, communist rhetoric but it is not part of a well-rounded education: its indoctrination and radicalization. The Seattle May Day crowd's intention, of course, is breaking windows and scuffling with police, which is part of the Bill Ayers program of study.
