Bernardine Dohrn and Mark Rudd

With all the talk about Ayers (and UofC's Dohrn), Mark Rudd was sure to surface.


Rudd took issue with that theory [that Jewish youngsters rebelled against their parents’ Stalinist orthodoxy by embracing Maoism] in a talk he gave at the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society in 2005. Rudd contended that most of his peers in SDS were nice Jewish kids from the suburbs who bought into the American dream until they made it to elite universities, where they realized that white Protestants still ruled.

As a footnote, Bernardine Dohrn's name came up while LBE was at law school, and most of the class of '93 did not have a clue who she was. And that was 15 years ago.
