Amazing to think that the FBI/police were running around killing activists, but we're left with a society that thinks the Weathermen - who did their best to prevent casualties w/ their bombings of buildings - are seen as "terrorists" (see the campaign in 2008 "Obama's terrorist friends" bs)

Schlam => Slam

So basically, pronouncing 'Schlammpeitziger' is it's like saying...
