Lest we forget how passionate the REAL Bill Ayers is.
Born in 1944, Bill Ayers, along with his wife Bernardine Dohrn, was a 1960s leader of the homegrown terrorist group Weatherman, a Communist-driven splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society. Characterizing Weatherman as "an American Red Army," Ayers summed up the organization's ideology as follows: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents."
More Ayers quotes:
"What a country," Ayers said in 2001. "It makes me want to puke."
Of the day he bombed the Pentagon, Ayers says, "Everything was absolutely ideal. ... The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them."
Ayers' comment on his life, as reported by Peter Collier and David Horowitz in their authoritative chapter on Weatherman in Destructive Generation, is this: "Guilty as sin, free as a bird, America is a great country."
Bill Ayers is a friend and admirer of Hugo Chavez. Ayers has traveled numerous times to Venezuela, extolling the virtues of revolution. Many liberal defenders of Ayers claim that he has redeemed himself through working in the field of education, but there is a very dark side to Ayers work there.
In 2006 during a visit to Venezuela, Ayers said: "We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution..."
Ayers and his wife, fellow Weatherman terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, raised the son of convicted fellow Weathermen Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert.
Michelle Malkin wrote in 2002: From both his biological and adoptive parents, Chesa Boudin has learned to stew in the indignant self-pity of Marxist leftovers
Boudin stands by the Weathermen's revolutionary agenda: "My parents were all dedicated to fighting U.S. imperialism around the world. I'm dedicated to the same thing."
This is the man that worked with Barack Obama on the Woods Fund board, funneling hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars, through government grants, to activist groups ACORN and AAAN (Arab American Action Network).
Bill Ayers is not someone that has 'reformed'. Bill Ayers continues his work today in different avenues. Ayers is influencing young people through his position as a university professor. Ayers, quite simply, has gone underground with his mission.
There is a common thread throughout all of this. Remember that Barack Obama's mother and grandparents were communist sympathizers. While living in Hawaii one of Barack Obama's mentors was another communist, Frank Davis Marshall. Obama stated in one of his books that he used to listen to Marshall's "poetry".
Spengler writes in Asia Times:
Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.
America has the great misfortune to have encountered Obama at the peak of his powers at its worst moment of vulnerability in a generation. With malice aforethought, he has sought out their sore point.
Barack Obama's past is cloudy, intentionally so I believe.
Even the New York Times was unable to reveal much:
Barack Obama does not say much about his years in New York City. The time he spent as an undergraduate at Columbia College and then working in Manhattan in the early 1980s surfaces only fleetingly in his memoir. In the book, he casts himself as a solitary wanderer in the metropolis, the outsider searching for a way to “make myself of some use.”
Mr. Obama has, of course, done plenty of remembering. His 1995 memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” weighs in at more than 450 pages. But he also exercised his writer’s prerogative to decide what to include or leave out. Now, as he presents himself to voters, a look at his years in New York — other people’s accounts and his own — suggests not only what he was like back then but how he chooses to be seen now.
There still, only 28 days away from the 2008 election, do not know much about Barack Obama. There are still so many unanswered questions. There are still so many obvious problems, but with the help of the liberal main-stream-media, most of these continue to be shoved aside while accusations fly about Obama's opponent, John McCain.
A red herring, I say.
This is why I am extremely concerned about Barack Obama's association with Bill Ayers.
I think you should be concerned too.
We need to know who Barack Obama REALLY is. I think I do, do you?
