    Three old commies past their best-before date, trying to relive their glory days.

    Too bad the Baader-Meinhof gang wasn’t brought up on charges of high treason and disposed of back in the day. If they had tried this in England back in the olden days, their deaths would have been most unpleasant…

    Red Army Faction pension is underfunded? Like the superannuated robbers who pulled the Hatton Garden safety deposit heist, one last job.

  • Ku Klux Klan? Nope. White supremacists? Nope. Right-wing terrorists? Nope. When you’re talking about the origins of “home-grown” terrorism in the West, it’s always the commies. And they obviously never reform.
