The Kent State shootings occurred in the context of the huge antiwar movement, which is probably why the event is iconic. MOVE had no involvement in anything greater than their own desire to subject their neighbors to filth and disruption. I think that’s why they don’t cast a long shadow.
As far as the piece you linked to at the top, I find it hard to understand why you have trouble understanding what happened after reading that piece. It’s pretty comprehensive, and the confrontation in 1985 should be easily understood by the experience Philadelphia had with MOVE in the 70s.
Finally, many people put too much emphasis on the bomb. It wasn’t even powerful enough to destroy the rooftop bunker. There is so much more to the story than the bomb.

re: #1 SteveMcGaziBolaGate RN

Just so. MOVE does not come out sympathetically at all in any fair telling of events, and most on the left would rather focus on events involving leftists who were not bad actors.

I don’t think it’s a left/right thing. The people from MOVE called themselves activists, but they never lifted a finger for anybody. The only activism they did was to rail against injustice using a bullhorn. All they brought to the table was filth and hostility.

Why Have So Many People Never Heard of the MOVE Bombing?

It happened more than fifteen minutes ago and it didn’t involve a Kardashian. Case closed.
