This Day In History: 1919-06-02

1919: Bolshevist-linked self-styled “anarchists,” in many ways the antecedents of today’s “antifa,” set off dynamite-laden “booby trap” bombs in eight separate American cities, timed to coincide with Jewish/Communist takeovers in prostrate Hungary and Bavaria. Targets of the series of bombings launched that year, of which at least 36 are known, included Theodore G. Bilbo, the pro-White Governor of Mississippi; Anthony Caminetti, US Commissioner General of Immigration; W.W. Sibray, Chief Immigration Officer, Pittsburgh; and Ole Hanson, anti-Communist mayor of Seattle, Washington.
