Ayers and Dohrn were the Founders and leaders of the Weather Underground terrorist group. Ayers and Dohrn are responsible for the murder a police officer in San Francisco. They also bombed the Pentagon and the Capitol among many other acts of terrorism. See their full terrorist resume below as reported by the Canadian Free Press. (Don't hold your breath waiting for the Associated Press to report on this!)
In January 2004 interview, Ayers was asked "How do you feel about what you did? Would you do it again under similar circumstances?" Ayers replied "I've thought about this a lot. Being almost 60, it's impossible to not have lots and lots of regrets about lots and lots of things, but the question of did we do something that was horrendous, awful? ... I don't think so. I think what we did was to respond to a situation that was unconscionable."
Ayers defended the bombing of the Pentagon by saying that the bomb was small and only caused 'tens of thousands of dollars' of damage. The operation cost under $500, and no one was killed or even hurt.
Prosecutors used illegal wiretaps to collect evidence against them so Ayers and Dohrn are free today even though they admit killing people. That’s a good thing to remember when Barack Obama says that he wants to treat terrorism not as a war, but as a criminal problem. With the help of a good ACLU lawyer, terrorists currently held in Guantanomo Bay could be as free as Bill Ayers; free to plot more terrorist attacks against America!
In a 2001 article in Chicago Magazine Ayers joked that he was "Guilty as sin, free as a bird, it's a great country".
But Bill Ayers condemns terrorism, but he doesn’t regret planting bombs and killing people. He says "I acted appropriately in the context of those times" Ayers says that when he planted bombs he wasn’t a terrorist because he defines terrorism as "the use or threat of random violence to intimidate, frighten, or coerce a population toward some political end," and he cites, as examples, "an Israeli assault on a neighborhood in Gaza," the Sept. 11 attacks, and "Sherman's March to the Sea" during the Civil War.
In most places in the United States radical domestic terrorists aren’t very popular, but Ayers has found a home, in academia! Ayers is now a respected professor at the University of Chicago where he’s training another generation of young people to hate the country in which they’ve been blessed with freedom and opportunity. What a country!
In 1997, Obama wrote a favorable article on Ayers' book on the juvenile justice system. They also share the same philosophy of education - that schools shouldn’t focus on student achievement such as math or reading skills, but instead on indoctrinating students into radical politics.
Obama condemns the terrorist acts, but defends his ally Bill Ayers as a model citizen and an English professor. He says that the bombings took place while he was in grade school. It doesn’t matter that he began his political career in his home or that Ayers contributed to his campaign; or that they’ve served on several boards together; or that Ayers hired him to distribute Annenberg Foundation money which was supposed to be used to promote education. Instead, Obama fund groups like ACORN to promote radical politics, sub-prime loans and voter fraud.
Obama has many faithful and loyal supporters in the media, especially at Associated Press (AP), to help him cover up and dismiss these facts. (AP and many other reporters are practically Obama campaign spokespersons.)
And now the man that Bill Ayers helped to introduce into political life is just a few weeks away from perhaps being elected as the next President of the United States. Only in America is such a story possible. What a country!
