Video: Meet William Ayers

posted at 2:37 pm on April 18, 2008 by Allahpundit

Stephanopoulos’s question about him at the debate had the expected effect, prodding not one but two major papers today to check up on him. WaPo’s is the one to read as it demonstrates how mainstream this turd has become in Chicago politics generally, not just the Obama corner of it, but the LA Times piece mentioned this video so I thought I’d toss it out there. As I’ve said before, I don’t think the Ayers association does much to hurt Obama. There are indeed contacts between the two, as Andy McCarthy reminds us, but they’re glancing enough that it’ll be hard to gain traction from them. Besides, if the point is that Obama doesn’t take great exception to exchanging pleasantries with terrorists, guess what: We already knew that. In the context of his willingness to meet with a Holocaust-denying state sponsor of regional terror like Ahmadinejad (or Hamas, should they eventually attain the magic status of statehood), meeting with Ayers almost seems provincial, particularly on a day when the left’s secular saint is busy gladhanding Bashar Assad. Still, Maverick’s bound to try to make an issue of this during the general, so here you go — necessary background for the coming clash.

Wow, you couldn’t be more wrong about how damaging Ayers will be to Obama. Their relationship has been quite close, and easily demonstrably so, since 1995. Ayers may be OK by the standards of academe or far-left MSM organs like the NY Times or LA Times, but certainly won’t pass the smell test of most US voters.

Most US voters haven’t ever heard this stuff as the MSM kept it firmly swept under the rug. The cat is out of the bag, and having escaped right after guns-faith-racistgate, and after Wright…it is all about painting a picture of a man who most folks know very little about. The picture is getting uglier and uglier in a way that is going to be easy for most Americans to grasp.

Oh, and sad but true, the fact that Ayers and Dohrn are white makes it easier for the press to talk about….they are leftist domestic terrorists, and can’t silence critics by calling them racists.

funky chicken on April 18, 2008 at 2:46 PM

It will hurt Obama just enough to lose in November. On its own, no, but part of the cumulative nominee Obama is turning out to be, yes.

Bishop on April 18, 2008 at 2:47 PM

Obama’s defense is, he hung around with people like Wright, and Ayers, but he didn’t like it and he didn’t inhale. He can tell his kids that BS, but I don’t buy it.

RBMN on April 18, 2008 at 2:47 PM

I would’ve preferred a little more professional undertaking of the video, but it gets the point across. I mean, half the time the quotes aren’t up long enough to read and they are on a background and in a font color that makes them difficult to read. Also, the audio was out of sync. Maybe TIME was right, the Dems are just better at the internet.

Other than that, it was well made.

jimmy the notable on April 18, 2008 at 2:50 PM

The U.S. is the most violent country in history? Could Dohrn really be that ignorant? Buy a history book, you pathetic tool.

AZCoyote on April 18, 2008 at 2:52 PM

Like a brick wall. You take one brick out and the wall still stands, but then you keep removing bricks and eventually you will remove just one brick and the wall falls. So it is with tying Obama to these hooligans. No single one, no single event will tumble him, but one by one, it weakens him. And as the weeks pass more will be found. He may have very little accomplishment in his public office, but there are other avenues to investigate a man’s character. How one votes doesn’t tell all about a “public servant.

Yeah but Ayers is really a nice guy, and all those things he did were just YouTube bits used for propaganda. Besides, Obama wasn’t actually there when Ayers was at the board meetings and even though they were neighbors, young Obama wasn’t actually there when Ayers was home.

Bishop on April 18, 2008 at 2:58 PM

I don’t think the Ayers association does much to hurt Obama.

Didn’t you say that originally about the Wright association?

Oh wait…

baldilocks on April 18, 2008 at 2:58 PM

To what funkychicken said…

What the media (and AllahP from reading his post) feels is that it is all so-so circumstantial that it will not matter to Joe Public. Bottom line is Ayers is a bombing terrorist punk. The exact same type of punk we are fighting a war over. Joe Public would go out of his way to shun such a person. The fact the Barry can consider his association with such an individual as no big thing will be a big thing with Joe. This murdering terrorist is now supposed to be some kinda reformed politician? Joe isn’t going to like that one little bit.

And Obama is still hanging around with these chumps. Wright was part of his campaign (advisor on faith) until a month ago.

The MSM will try to bury this information again by the time of the general election. And they will play the “old story” card. I desperately hope the public doesn’t buy it.

Bottom line is Ayers is a bombing terrorist punk.

More like Ayers is a bombing terrorist smart ass punk from a very wealthy family who is now pouring his sewage into the willing minds of college students on the taxpayer’s dime.

Sure Barry, you had no idea. If you didn’t know who this jerkoff was, how in the world can you run for President?

I used to be sort of positive on Barry, but the more that come sout about the guy, the more he descends to Rev Dr Wright’s level.

benrand on April 18, 2008 at 3:25 PM

The Left likes guys like this because it brings back that late-60’s sparkle to their eyes–the late-60’s when the Revolution for one glorious moment seemed almost possible. LOL! Douches!

I was a young adult during the times of the Weather Men, Black Panthers, the Sybaneise[sp?] Liberation Army etc. These were very scary terrorist home grown groups. They wanted the destruction of the US, by force. I will not forget, those who are too young need to be reminded of them.

calgrammy on April 18, 2008 at 3:28 PM

Oh, and for the record, if it hasn’t been pointed out, Ayres’ wife, Bernardine Dohrn (law professor at Northwester U.) praised Charles Manson (after the Tate-LoBianca murders) as a groovy revolutionary hero. Rather than a bogus and hypocritical national conversation on race, let’s have a national conversation about the kinds of people teaching on college campuses. Take it away David Horowitz…

AP, you don’t think Obama’s association with Ayers will hurt Obama and McCain doesn’t have ammunition or the public in general? Yeah, the weak of mind maybe, but I will be amazed if all of Obama’s connections and this one isn’t the icing, won’t hurt! Are you voting for Obama by chance?

Ayers’ girlfriend before Dohrn–Diana Oughton–died in a “work accident.”

Ayers joined the Weatherman group in 1969, but went underground with several associates after the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970, in which three members (Ted Gold, Terry Robbins, and Diana Oughton, who was Ayers’ girlfriend at the time) were killed while constructing a nail bomb.

These proto-jihadis were going to blow up a Fort Dix NCO dance but blew themselves up instead.

Rest in Pieces.

As a retired AF NCO, I wouldn’t spit on Ayers if he were on fire. And, the way he’s going, he will be.

This understatement from the L.A. Times provides a clue why I think Ayers and Barry’s other comrades will hurt him:

As a result, what is normal in Hyde Park may sound odd elsewhere in America.

Meanwhile at WaPo we get a taste of the banality of evil:

Yet among politicians and activists in Chicago, what happened in the 1960s has long been overshadowed by what colleagues consider their mainstream liberal good works.

“It’s kind of laughable for people who have worked with Bernadine and Bill in the most boring and mundane settings and recognize that they’re absolutely upstanding establishment citizens today,” said Lawrence C. Marshall, a Stanford University law professor.

I’d be interested to see the poll that asks, “Would you vote for a presidential candidate that had known ties with an unrepentant terrorist?” [credit: Hannity] followed by, “Are you voting for Obama in the primary?”

I believe that we’re heading for some transforming times when so many do not think his associations are a significant indicator of what his Cabinet and appointments are going to be like if he gets elected.

People have a tendency to disregard the last four words of JC’s admonition to “Judge not lest you be judged” meaning don’t judge another, lest you be judged by the same standard.

If I were an unrepentant terrorist, I would expect others to judge me by my actions and my lack of repentance. And that’s how Jesus’s caution is meant.

Oh and, do you know for a fact that Ayers has become a Christian? I’m guessing not, but feel free to correct me–with evidence.

baldilocks on April 18, 2008 at 5:46 PM

Add this to being completely without clue on the impact of marginal tax rates, Barry O is showing more and more as a dogmatic Marxist tool with little but eloquence (to read a script and create vaporware change).

No wonder his posters are carefully in Stalinist style. The same groupies are at it again…

Obama spoke in SF as if he is one of the leftist elite. He ain’t, just their poster boy for the moment.

In the 1960’s Barry O would have been shooting people besides the Ayers/Dorns/Mansons etc. Now these clowns are still playing the same game, just from within the “system”.

And that, boys and girls, is what the wonderful 60’s were all about. That is the same time period Black Nationalism came into existence. It would appear that Barry is attracted to that siren song. Not too surprising. This is when the honorable Sen Kerry went off to Europe to dally with our enemies, Bill Clinton detested the military, and Hillary worked for an activist commie law firm in San Francisco. Most of our university profs came of age at this time and so did I. I can honestly say the the 60’s did more damage to this country than any other decade, even the 30’s, when it was fashionable to be a university commie.
I suspect that Barry mom was a fellow traveller and that is the attraction for him.

thatcher on April 18, 2008 at 6:17 PM

I know of Bill Ayers personally. He spoke at one of my functions at the University of Chicago, and I had no clue who he was at the time. He talked about teaching kindergardeners and such – he has books about education, so he is not just a professor but an educator of children. He just seemed sort of full of himself at the time – it wasn’t until later that I learned he had raised the children of some of his co-terrorists who were in prison. Still, I don’t consider my professor a terrorist sympathizer just because he and Ayers are friends and have a common passion for educating the urban youth of Chicago. This doesn’t excuse the previous actions or contemporary comments of Ayers.

Is their passion to educate or indoctrinate? If Ayers adopted son, Chessa Boudin, is an example of how he “educates” people, then education to him is conversion. Chesa says

The claim that Chavez is a dictator is based on nothing but media hype and propaganda. He has more of a democratic claim than Bush. He continues to have the support of the majority of the country, which Bush never had. Chavez has been supported multiple times through elections, recall referenda, and he’s won with huge margins. And the elections were monitored by the EU, the Carter Center, the International Lawyers Guild.

The Weather Underground Documentary Clip

The Weather Underground is an Oscar Nominated feature-length documentary film that follows the rise and fall of the Weather Underground – a group of several hundred young women and men who tried to violently overthrow the American government during the late 1960s and 70s. Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, the Weathermen battled police in the streets, bombed the US Capital and two dozen other buildings, and broke Timothy Leary out of prison. For almost a decade, they lived underground and evaded one of the largest FBI manhunts in US history. In this film, former members of the Weather Underground (including Bernardine Dohrn, Mark Rudd, Naomi Jaffe, Bill Ayers, Laura Whitehorn and a number of others) speak candidly about their own thoughts and experiences many for the first time ever. What drove the group to embrace violence? How did violence affect their cause? How did it change them? And how do they feel about their actions thirty years later?

moxie_neanderthal on April 18, 2008 at 8:49 PM

I do admit that there is some motivation of indoctrination for a lot of leftist teachers, but so far it seems that much of that gets thrown out of the window when in the face of the challenge of a room full of students. The most communism that I think is taught is in shared supplies and such – there’s not very far to go with that with kindergardeners. However, I don’t know what exactly he teaches to his university students, soon to be teachers. I remember something about “creative insubordination,” but I think that was more Herbert Kohl.

Bill Ayers is deceptively nice person – he doesn’t seem like a terrorist if you meet him. I’ve met him – he was actually trying to maintain decorum at a forum. I’d be a lot more tolerant of him if he was apologetic.

He is a professor at UIC. His profile is given prominent placement via the UIC College of Education’s publicly available web page

Coincidently, it appears as though Mark Rudd is one of the few from that organization to be ashamed of many of the things they did.

moxie_neanderthal on April 20, 2008 at 1:04 PM

The more his past is revealed, the more I begin to understand why certain wealthy patrons, such as Soros, chose Obama. The ingredients were perfect:A young, attractive, charismatic, radical leftist minority personality; relatively unknown, with no clear paper trail to identify his beliefs. Easy to mold and easy to introduce as a Trojan Horse into the Senate. It is not surprising that Ayers spotted Obama before he entered politics and sponsored his election. So far, nothing is unusual. What would be interesting to find out is when Soros first met Obama and when he became his sponsor.

Once elected, most of us agree that someone coached him to not leave a clear record in the state senate. His actions were a strange political decision. How many new politicians avoid going on record in public remarks or by taking stands in the controversial votes? Normally, new politicians urgently attempt to attract attention by their political decisions, not avoid it.

These actions indicate Obama was being groomed before his first election to maintain a public image imitating a mainstream Democrat. If he knew his sponsors would be backing his next attempt to leap to a higher rung, then any concerns would be calmed over a lack of great publicity.

It reminds me of Ward Churchill’s famous advice three years ago. I believe the speech was broadcast on radio and is available online. He advised his listeners that they had to start dressing “like the Man” in order to disguise their intentions, gain admittance, and then go about causing damage. In Churchill’s example, he was referring to radicals wishing to bomb buildings. (I never understood how that speech did not land that vermin in jail.) In Obama’s case, imitating “the Man” would allow him to gain national prominence and eventually introduce political explosions instead of physical ones.

Now, this politician who deliberately avoided making a reputation at the state level is selected to run for the national Senate. How remarkable, how quick and easy jump was his next leap to power. Certainly, Obama’s political machine must have contained talents far beyond the scope of a state politician. The entire election was unbelievably orchestrated. Many wonder how Obama could afford such high-level help. Neither his gifts nor his minority status explains such an extraordinary leap into national prominence.

Again, it would be interesting to find out precisely when Obama first met Soros. Did Soros hold a nation wide talent search? A political American Idol ?

There has to be some political strategy to stop George Soros’s financial assault on American democracy.

Ragnell on April 20, 2008 at 1:56 PM

Another thought

Why were the Weathermen relatively successful at bombing important buildings? One likely strategy: they followed Churchill’s* instructions and ditched their hippie attire to dress and act like “the Man” when attacking the government or other organizations. Yet their success at physical destruction brought down the wrath and power of our government. They learned that overt,violent rebellion failed.

As a result, they have morphed their old strategy to apply towards gaining academic, political and economic power. What they couldn’t gain through terrorism, many have gained by blending in and hiding their objectives. Now decades later, they are termites chewing away at our culture and government.

*Churchill claims he was part of the group; perhaps he was sharing their strategy with his current day audience.
