Bill Ayers, circa 1970.
Barry’s ol’ pal Bill "Boom Boom" Ayers was briefly back in the news again. Billy was speaking at the campus of Kent State University where, in a Vietnam War Protest in 1970, four protesters were shot by Ohio National Guardsmen in what became known as the Kent State Massacre.
After four days and three nights of rioting in the streets, smashing windows, burning down buildings, as well as on-and-off pelting of policemen, firemen and National Guardsmen with rocks, bricks, bottles, tear gas canisters and profanities, some 29 of the Ohio National Guardsmen present fired their M1 Garands into a crowd of several hundred protestors. When the smoked cleared, four students lay dead and nine wounded. It was and still is a tragedy.
Personally, though, I find the cause-and-effect pretty easy to follow. If I were dealing with a couple of platoons of confused and nervous young men with loaded rifles being surrounded by a huge mob, I would probably not start hurling profanities and bricks into their faces to defuse the situation. It’s kind of like one of those TV animal show idiots. “Krikey! Didja see that? When I poked that Black Mamba in the pills with a cattle prod, it struck me!” No shit, Sherlock. Who’da thunk?
Anyway, Bill Ayers was there at Kent State giving some kind of speech about it. Probably something along the lines of, “Their sacrifices will not be in vain because now we’re in charge and next time we’ll be shooting them down in the streets and we’ll fire a lot more than 67 bullets and it will be justified this time because we’re doing it!”
That would be my guess anyway, since when asked by a reporter to compare his own terrorist actions in setting off bombs and trying to kill people with the recent Boston Marathon Bombers’ terrorist actions in setting off bombs and trying to kill people, Ayers threw a typical uber-Liberal hissy bitch fit.
“How dare you compare our activism to their terrorism?!?! Setting off bombs and killing people in order to further wacko Leftist/Communist causes is good, clean, all-American freedom of speech and for the benefit of all mankind. Setting off bombs and killing people to advance religion, any religion, even the Religion of Peace, is an abomination and must not be tolerated!”
He finished by calling John McCain a baby killer. Or words to that effect; I didn’t have the stomach to listen to it all.
For those who get their news from the MSM and think Bill Ayers is an “activist”, “retired professor” and an “American elementary education theorist”, we’ll have to bring you up to speed. Bill Ayers was (is) a genuine domestic terrorist, even though he’s never been to a Tea Party rally nor joined the NRA or ever gone to Mass. As a charter member of the 1960’s radical Communist terrorist group Weather Underground, Billy Boy was involved in detonating bombs at the U.S. Capital Building, the Pentagon, and police stations around the country. Such terrorism was actually just a perfectly legitimate way of showing displeasure with the Vietnam War, at least now that Nixon rather than Kennedy or Johnson was running it, according to Terrorist Bill.
As to his own bomb-throwing days, Bill said in a 2000 interview (while trying to promote one of his books…although I’m certain that such an avowed Communist would never take money from a Capitalist publisher) "I don't regret setting bombs" and, "I feel we didn't do enough" and implied some more bombing might even be in order. After getting his tit caught in a wringer over that, Bill later claimed Weather Underground only engaged in “acts of extreme radicalism against property” and didn’t hurt anyone.
It wasn’t for lack of trying. Perhaps the biggest real difference between Ayers’ Weather Underground and the Boston Bombers was one of sheer incompetence rather than lack of deadly intent. When members of the Black Panther Party were on trial for a plot to bomb New York City landmarks and apartment stores, Bill and the Weather Underground tried to ride to the rescue of their fellow left-wing terrorists by attacking the home of the trial’s presiding judge with Molotov cocktails in the middle of the night. Fortunately for the judge and his sleeping family, the intricacies of Molotov technology were just too much for the future college professor and education innovator; Ayers & Co. only succeeded in damaging the family car and melting down a snowman in the yard with their cocktails.
After setting off a couple of real bombs which disappointingly only caused minor damage to the Pentagon and U.S. Capital Building, Bill decided they’d better step things up a bit and commit better radical acts against property. Bill’s Weather Underground sweetheart and two male buddies attempted to construct a really nice bomb by packing steel pipes full of dynamite surrounded by roofing nails and fencing staples, since it’s obviously shrapnel and not blast which radically damages property but doesn’t hurt people. The bomb was destined for nearby army post Fort Dix, NJ, where it was to be exploded in the midst of a family dance at the Enlisted Men’s club, where it no doubt would have done some really radical crepe paper and bottled beverage property damage but was not intended, according to Ayers, to actually hurt anyone in the crowded dancehall when it exploded in a hail of shrapnel.
Since the whole gasoline-in-a-glass-bottle concept of the earlier Molotov cocktails had proven too much for the combined intellect of the Weather Underground, it should come as no big surprise that in the debate over whether to connect the wire to the blasting cap before or after connecting it to the battery, the three terrorists obliterated themselves and indeed the entire four-story townhouse they were in the basement of at the time. Most people would call such wanna-be bombers morons; Bill calls them heroic martyrs for the people.
Bill told an FBI informant in the 1970’s he was pissed because there just weren’t enough bombings being carried out around the country, as per his instructions, presumably for lack of resolve but just as likely from lack of fingers amongst the Intellectual Left’s bomb making experts. Brave Bomber Bill even had to personally send his replacement sweetheart and eventual wife, Bernadine Dohrn, to go plant another TNT-and-shrapnel bomb at a San Francisco police station. When the bomb exploded it committed several radical acts against the police station itself, but also “accidentally” just happened to kill Police Sgt. Brian McDonnell in the process.
Bill and Bernadine spent most of the 70’s on the run from the law, but did find time along the way to get married, the joyous occasion marred by tragedy when fellow Weather Underground friends attempting to tie tin cans and shoes to the bumper of the newlyweds’ car blew it up, injuring twelve people.
Due to another surprising development, FBI misconduct, in 1980 Federal charges against Bill and Bernie were dropped. But the California state charges against Bernadine remained. For the murder of an on-duty police officer, she was hit with the heart-breaking sentence of three years’ probation and a $1,500 fine. That’ll teach her.
Now released from life underground evading the authorities, Bill went to school to become an educator, a highly acclaimed expert in such subjects as (I can’t even make this up) “social justice” and “urban education reform”, but failing miserably (three times) a freshmen-level chemistry class entitled “Black Wire Safe, Red Wire Boom!”. Eventually he became, and again I can’t make this shit up, a "Distinguished Professor of Education" and "Senior Anniversary Scholar" at the College of Education at the University of Illinois, Chicago. In his spare time, he devoted his towering intellect to caring for the badly burned former students of his short-lived Molotov 101 course.
Bill also worked closely with and for the City of Chicago and former Mayor Richard M. Daley, playing a major role in reforming the Chicago Public School System into what it is today, namely a great big lump of shit and the worst in the country. To this day, the surviving students at Karl Marx Junior High still use a statue of Bill Ayers to hide behind when the daily bursts of gang-related gunfire become too thick to run through. He also wrote a bunch of books nobody but liberal kooks ever read, such as (still not making it up) Teaching Toward Freedom: Moral Commitment and Ethical Action in the Classroom and Sing a Battle Song: The Revolutionary Poetry, Statements, and Communiques of the Weather Underground 1970-1974, as well as two autobiographies using the pen name Barack Hussein Obama. He officially retired from teaching in 2010 but vowed to remain, “an arrogant, mouthy pain in the ass” for as long as his city needed him.
There was some controversy concerning the relationship between Presidential Candidate Barack Obama and terrorist Bill Ayers during the 2008 Election. Obama smoothly explained away the misunderstanding on CNN.
“Sure, maybe we sat together on some exclusive 6-9 member boards of directors for a few different foundations for years at a time, and he may have held an occasional fund raiser and coffee klatch or wife swap in his living room for me. Possibly, he babysat my children once or twice when they were young, from ages two to eight. When he gave money to my campaigns, I took it. It’s not inconceivable that he wrote an autobiography or two for me. I may have even taken long, hot showers with him and perhaps referred to him using playful nicknames such as ‘Obi-Wan’ and ‘Guru’ and ‘Massah’.”
“But to suggest that this cra-a-a-a-zy radical kook is anything more than just some guy I bumped into down in da ‘hood or has influenced me any way, shape or form is just a vicious smear campaign of lies hurled against me by a pathetic and desperate McCain Campaign and Fox News because they’re racists!”
Afterwards, the assembled MSM journalists looked at their watches and minutely dissected Obama’s speech for any discrepancies and, after upwards of 1/10th of a second of this exhaustive fact-checking, said, “Obama said it. Must be true. Let’s go file our stories and get shit-faced! We sure dodged that bullet!"
The trend continues to this day. This is why Obama can make a “joke” at a recent press banquet that’s he’s not the same “young Muslim Socialist” he once was and the assembled hacks all titter like school girls.
The Press has bent over backwards to ignore Obama’s membership in the Socialist Party ever since 2008. When merely not reporting the story wasn’t enough to make it go away, the bastards actually ran interference for the sonofabitch. Five years later, this past February, the investigative journalists of the Associated Press went so far as to pool their vast information gathering resources to run another “fact check” investigation to definitively dismiss the entire story as just a right wing kook tinfoil hat myth perpetrated by racists.
Then, two weeks later, the very minutes of the New Party Chicago’s own January 11, 1996 meeting are unveiled as proof positive that Barry not only joined the radical New Party Socialist order, but took and signed their oath, and asked for their endorsement.
The MSM immediately reacted with…THUNDEROUS SILENCE. If we don’t report it, and pretend it never happened, then it didn’t. At least as far as the average evening news-watching sheeple is concerned.
So, if the little “joke” about him being a Socialist is actually true, what about the Muslim thing? While I do think he has strong Islamic tendencies and sympathies, not even I think Barack is a real Muslim. That would require belief in a higher power than Barack Obama.
Now that’s a myth. Just ask the media.

|May Day (now "Loyalty Day") celebration in Soviet Union.|
May 1st, historically an important day to the world's communists and socialists, has now officially been declared "Loyalty Day" in the U.S. by Premier Obama. (No folks, we just can't make this stuff up.)
In his official proclamation announcing the day of Loyalty to the state, Obama declares "we have reaffirmed our faith in the ideals that inspired our founding," referring to the generation of Americans who rebelled against their own king and the form of government that they had been born into. The day will supposedly "recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation."
Obama also states: "On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values." Unfortunately, thanks to power-hungry politicians like Obama, allegiance to the latter two items is increasingly making loyalty to the former more difficult every day.
