kitten.
I think czolgosz was a kind of terrorist. He tryed to shout president mckinley in USA
in the 1880es. The famous anarchist emma goldman had benn in touch with him. Unknowing that he was a form of agent, who wanted to blame the anarchist movement

in the states............

Leon Czołgosz, the son of Polish immigrants, was an anarchist who assassinated President William McKinley at the World's Fair in Buffało, NY. It was people like him, the Italian anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti and other assorted loony bombers and revolutioanries with foreign ties that triggered America's anti-immigrant backlash in the early 20th century.
