    On Sunday night, The New York Times deleted a tweet almost immediately after it had been issued, a tweet that marked the death of a former member of an American terrorist group whom the Times initially stated "took part in a murderous 1981 holdup of a Brinks' armored truck."

    That tweet referred to former Weather Underground member Nancy Boudin, who just happened to be the mother of leftist San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin.

    The Times hastily deleted the tweet; two minutes after its issuance the Times offered another tweet which stated that Nancy Boudin was "imprisoned for her role in a fatal robbery but who later helped former inmates."

    Chesa Boudin called the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) racist in June 2019, snapping, "There are lots of situations in San Francisco where ICE is making arrests. We know it's racist, we know it's targeting immigrants, and unfortunately, right now no one in the DA's office has the resources or the mandate to investigate those interactions."

    The Daily Mail noted of Chesa Boudin's parents:

    Boudin's father, David Gilbert, 76, was convicted of felony murder in connection with the infamous Brinks' heist in 1981, which left two police officers and a guard dead, while his mother, Kathy Boudin, was also convicted in the crime and paroled in 2003.

    "Gilbert was sentenced to 75 years to life in prison for his role in the robbery which saw members of the Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army steal $1.6 million from a Brink's armored truck at a suburban Rockland County mall in upstate New York. Sgt. Edward O'Grady and Officer Waverly Brown from the Nyack Police Department and Brink's guard Peter Paige were all killed," The Daily Mail added.

    Bernard Goldberg, in his book "Arrogance: Rescuing America From The Media Elite," quoted Chesa Boudin bemoaning his parents' incarceration, complaining to The New York Times, "My parents were dedicated to fighting U.S. imperialism around the world. I'm dedicated to the same thing ... I'm sad that that my parents have to suffer what they have to suffer on a daily basis, that millions of other people have to suffer as well."

    "While we hear much about Chesa Boudin's suffering and hardships, and about the suffering and hardships of the poor around the world, neither the Times nor our Ivy-League educated Rhodes scholar tells us anything about the suffering of other children much closer to home -the nine children left behind by the policemen and the guard who were murdered, in cold blood, with the help of Chesa Boudin's parents," Goldberg wrote. "On this the Times and young Mr. Boudin are silent. They say not a word."
