“If we really believe that these animals do have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course we are going to be, as a movement, blowing stuff up and smashing windows. For the record, I don’t do this stuff, but I do advocate it. I think it’s a great way to bring about animal liberation. I think it would be a great thing if all of these fast-food outlets, and these slaughterhouses, and these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it’s perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through the windows, and everything else along the line. Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it.”

“Go to Vietnam and shoot your Commanding officer. Become an airplane mechanic and learn to sabotage planes. . . . [A]l1 police and members of their families must be killed and law enforcement demoralized. All jails and prisons must be opened and inmates liberated.”

“Poems are bulls–t unless they are teeth or trees or lemons piled on a step. . . . We want poems like fists beating n****rs out of Jocks, or dagger poems in the slimy bellies of the owner-jews. Black poems to smear on girdle-mamma mulatto bitches whose brains are red jelly stuck between ‘lizabetb taylor’s toes. Stinking Whores! We want poems that kill. Assassin poems. Poems that shoot guns. Poems that wrestle cops into alleys and take their weapons leaving them dead with tongues pulled out and sent to Ireland.”
- Amiri Baraka , 1969.
“I don’t regret setting bombs [while a member of the Weathermen]. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
