Tom Hayden, R.I.P.
David Horowitz was a friend of Tom Hayden’s and knew him well, writing once: “Tom was indeed an angry man, who seemed in perpetual search of enemies.”
I find that to be true of so many on the Left, and it seems that so many of them seek to take revenge on the innocent instead of those they have actual reason to be angry with. I knew who Hayden was before he became Jane Fonda’s husband, having had some unpleasant run-ins with his Students for a Democratic Society members.
I won’t miss him in the slightest, but it is good that he can no longer cause more damage to society.
UPDATE: This piece, somewhat harshly, but absolutely truthfully, fleshes out Hayden’s life.
