Being A Communist Terrorist Means Never Having To Say You’re Sorry- But Lori Berenson Does, Sort Of

Lori Berenson was an idealistic young American committed to change and social justice in Latin America, or in plain language of normal people a communist terrorist.

True to form Wikipedia whitewashes her as much as they can. She claims she didn’t know anything, but as someone who had worked with Latin American communist terrorists in the past, she at least had to know who they were. More likely she was in on it from the beginning-

As you can see, essentially the entire liberal establishment, political and religious, advocated for her, in absence of any real admission of responsibility on her part. Christianity is pacifist for anti-communists, but a jingoistic flag-waver for communists.

Regrets? She has a few-

But she has no sense of responsibility or culpability, and she continues to advocate the politics of force.

Note especially the leftist obsession with process- her trials weren’t “fair”. Process aside it is fairly obvious what she did. Her claims of ignorance are not plausible. But the purpose of such claims is only to distract from the real issue. Leftists never want to let you see the real issue.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Berenson consistently lied for fourteen years about her connection to the Peruvian terrorist gang – see her website. Now, she has certain “regrets.” She says she never engaged in violence – but joined a gang of terrortist. I’m I missing something?…But her cynical tone and convoluted language give her away. While in prison she attacked the “American Way of Life” (Again, see her website). Now she wants to come home….Poor Little Lori…a true red-diaper baby. Now the speaking campus tour?
