Dohrn in 2007: America, “the heart of the monster”

posted at 5:55 pm on April 23, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

John Hinderaker has done an excellent job in assembling clips from speeches given by William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, both in the past and as recent as a 40-year reunion of Students for a Democratic Society in 2007. Even as Barack Obama tries to pass them off as mainstream, these clips show how futile that task really is. Last year, twelve years after Obama sought out their blessing for his first political race and five years after Obama’s association with them at the Woods Foundation ended, both Ayers and Dohrn still preach that America-hating gospel.

Here’s Dohrn on how she sees America:

It was an incredible thing for him to say [Martin Luther King's assertion that the US was "the greatest purveyor of violence" in the world], the greatest purveyor of violence on this earth is my own country. There were certainly other purveyors of violence. I think that’s still true today. If we think it’s true today, that has incredible implications for all of us right now. We who are, as we used to say, in the belly of the beast … It again means not that we are the only purveyor of violence in the world, but that we have an extraordinary, special responsibility, not necessarily the most enviable one, of how to act here, inside the heart of the monster.

How does Barack Obama see Dohrn? Let’s see what his website says:

AYERS AND DOHRN BECAME RESPECTABLE FIXTURES OF THE MAINSTREAM IN CHICAGO

Here’s Ayers at the same reunion in 2007, approvingly quoting Chou En-lai, Mao’s right-hand man, on revolution:

Chou En-lai was asked by a European reporter if he could comment about the impact in his thinking of the French revolution in terms of the Chinese experience. And Chou En-lai thought about it for quite a long time, and he said, “The French revolution? Too early to tell.” And I think there’s something to that. I mean, if you take the long view, empire is in decline. If you take the long view, there’s a lot to look forward to. So many of us have watched with absolute horror as we’ve been marched step by step towards an authoritarianism that was unthinkable 40 years ago.

Hold the phone. On one hand, Ayers is praising a man who helped brutally oppress a nation of over a billion people, in a government that literally killed millions through neglect and deliberate starvation, and to this day imposes abortions on women as part of its population control program. On the other, he has watched in horror as the US has done — what? Hold free elections? Feed its people? Allow for personal liberty on a scale unmatched in history?

Ayers thinks that the Bush administration is a horror of authoritarianism, but that Mao and the Beijing Communists just need a little more time to tweak the revolution? And what does Barack Obama have to say about William Ayers?

AYERS IS A TENURED PROFESSOR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGO AND WAS A “RESPECTED ADVISOR” TO MAYOR DALEY ON SCHOOL REFORM

Ayers Is A “Sensitive And Gifted” Writer And Teacher.

 

 

Ayers “Served No Time.”

Well, at least the latter is more than he’ll be able to say about Tony Rezko in a few weeks. Be sure to read all of John’s post.

The media has been pushing the line that Obama is a post-babyboomer. That the culture wars are over. Think again. America is still stuck in the 60′s/70′s and given ccurrent life expectancy projections for the boomers will be for at least another 10 or 20 years.

Everything old is new again. These fossils should be grateful for the attention they are getting. They are like old Confederates circa 1900 who are condemned to live comfortable lives in a nation they tried to destroy and now probably guilt ridden for not escaping to Cuba or the Soviet block. All the young radicals should take a good look at them a see what they will become in 40 years.

SouthernGent on April 23, 2008 at 6:06 PM

I know this may sound a bit trutherish, but I don’t know why everyone’s assuming that Obama and Ayers/Dohrn’s relatonship only goes back to Obama’s days in Chicago. While Obama was at Columbia (graduated in ’83), Ayers was doing his Masters degree at the Bank Street College of Education, just two blocks south of Columbia’s campus in Morningside Heights. If my math is right, they were neigbors and somewhat aligned ideologically in the early 1980′s. Columbia’s a pretty small community (I spent a number of years there), so I find it hard to believe that they didn’t run into each other back then, especially with Ayers’ “celebrity” status on the left.

Something came to my mind long time ago and I was waiting to see if any “smart” voter would ask Hussein about it.

Hussein labeled himself and his campaign as “the agent of change.”

Now, can you explain to me, baby Hussein why do you have more or close to a 100 of former Hillary and Bill Clinton’s advisers and their high-ranking administration staff on your campaign as YOUR advisers?

What change is that if your advisers are Hillary’s and Bill’s?

Barack Hussein Obama, you’re a liar.

You are using whatever you can say and do to be the first Black president.

Admit it.

Your cheerleaders don’t see the TRUTH now. But nothing that is wrong ever stay in hidding.

You are going to pay the price sooner or later.

The more I hear the progressive and radical left, the more I realize they suffer from a disease that denies them the ability of quantitative and qualitative discernment. Their inability to recognize the difference between Abu Graib and Pol Pot’s killing fields, or our mission in Iraq versus Hilter’s march into the Sudetenland, truly hampers their functioning in life. The sad part of it is they wind up in our universities spreading this sickness to our younger generation.

But, they both went on to become academics and enjoy a New York lifestyle that is provided by this awful country. Talk about bullsh#t….they are so into wealth and comfort and free, good life in America they would never move out of this country. Tells you everything you need to know, not only about these useless idiots, but Obama..and, his wife!!

sharinlite on April 23, 2008 at 6:19 PM

The main reason I left the political left was this absolutely appalling unwillingness – blindness really – to criticize leftist regimes. Not even criticize, really; it’s the veneration of these bloody tyrants.

Sure, we can debate – acknowledge if one insists – American injustices or shortcomings (our support for brutal regimes, et cetera). There is some – some – truth in that indictment. We all acknowledge, for example, the racism and other injustices in our history.

But this absurd belief that these Marxist regimes aren’t tenfold – no a thousandfold – worse than America is just too much. America’s sins are just that, sins. The failures of Communist systems are built into the operation of those systems.

I’m quite sure Obama heard this stuff from these knuckleheads. And he sat there and took it.

No, sorry Senator, no presidency for you.

SteveMG on April 23, 2008 at 6:21 PM

More Far Right loon Atwater attacks, glad McCain ain’t biting. It’s really shameful and looks so desparate.

He needs to run a clean campaign. After all Karl Rove did try to destroy him in 2000. Disgusting dirty politicking, the Independents hate it, the country hates it. Those who do it the most this time around will lose.

The association with those two moonbats just isn’t there, it’s been vetted, checked, researched, revisited. Living in one’s neighborhood and sitting on a board together doesn’t prove anything. The fundraiser was over 10 years ago. And if someone wanted to waste good time they could find any numbers of Republicans who have sat on boards with unsavory characters over the years, or lived near them.

Again, why are the Republican and Conservative bloggers acting so desparate??

AprilOrit on April 23, 2008 at 6:22 PM

Ed,

To Comrade Obama, Dorn and Ayers ARE ‘main-stream’. What I find most interesting is Ayers’ statement:

So many of us have watched with absolute horror as we’ve been marched step by step towards an authoritarianism that was unthinkable 40 years ago.

Students for a Democratic Society were, and still are, nihilist anarchists wanting to destroy the US Government. What would replace it? Likely something created by their Soviet Masters. In this regard, SDS fits in well with the current political left which seeks to complete the conversion of the US Government to a pure Socialist camp. Only, the methods to accomplish that goal are different.

Oh I see it now. I dunno if it’s entirely fair to accredit the quote and the ideas behind it to Obama here. His site cited the article to downplay the danger around calling them “Terrorists” given his (Casual) relationship with them. So they found someone who wrote something nice about them.

SteveMG:

The main reason I left the political left was this absolutely appalling unwillingness – blindness really – to criticize leftist regimes. Not even criticize, really; it’s the veneration of these bloody tyrants.

Nothing wrong with that. I often get disgusted with the Castro apologists on the left as well.

At the same time, I think the right also has its problems with defending tyrants.

Like this:

On 5 December 1982, Ronald Reagan met the Guatemalan president, Efraín Ríos Montt, in Honduras. It was a useful meeting for Reagan. ‘Well, I learned a lot,’ he told reporters on Air Force One. ‘You’d be surprised. They’re all individual countries.’ It was also a useful meeting for Ríos Montt. Reagan declared him ‘a man of great personal integrity . . . totally dedicated to democracy’, and claimed that the Guatemalan strongman was getting ‘a bum rap’ from human rights organisations for his military’s campaign against leftist guerrillas. The next day, one of Guatemala’s elite platoons entered a jungle village called Las Dos Erres and killed 162 of its inhabitants, 67 of them children.

Or this:

More than a dozen conservative organizations last night honored Roberto D’Aubuisson, the leader of El Salvador’s extreme right wing, with a plaque and a closed-door dinner for 120 people at the Capitol Hill Club.

The plaque expresses appreciation for D’Aubuisson’s “continuing efforts for freedom in the face of communist aggression which is an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere.”
[...]
A former Salvadoran army major who was cashiered for plotting coups, D’Aubuisson has been linked to death-squad murders in El Salvador by former U.S. ambassador Robert E. White and congressional testimony. But D’Aubuisson and the conservatives insist that the charges are false and spread by Marxists opposed to his democratic, free-enterprise views and to the conservative ARENA party whose unsuccessful presidential candidate he was.

Just as some leftists will accuse critics of Castro and Chavez of being in the pockets of the capitalists, some conservatives have often accused critics of rightist tyrants of being in cahoots with the commies.

No one was “insulting” the GOP. I was insulting your ridiculous posts here claiming massive poverty and hunger in America.

That’s absurd. And so is your response to this post discussing the relationship between a presidential candidate and these despicable people.

If you are indeed a Republican, instead of excusing Obama’s behavior you should be condemning it.

Any Republican who associated with far right individuals of the type of Ayers and Dohrn would have no chance of being President.

These Northwestern alumni had the judgment Barry lacked. Are they smarter and wiser than the Messiah?: Excerpts from Article Dated November 4, 2001

It was old news. Bernardine Dohrn, formerly head of the radical Weather Underground group and once among the F.B.I.’s most wanted fugitives, is a faculty member at Northwestern University Law School. But her husband’s recently released memoir about their days as Weathermen has apparently opened new wounds…

In a letter last month to David E. Van Zandt, the law school’s dean, Mr. O’Shea called Ms. Dohrn an ”unrepentant terrorist” and demanded that the university return his $1,000 contribution…

Mr. Ayers is a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, which has received about 70 angry calls and letters, some from alumni. But so far no donors have threatened to withdraw support, said Mark Rosati, a university spokesman.

Mr. Rosati said the school’s position was that while many people might find Mr. Ayers’s recent comments objectionable, he was within his First Amendment rights.

Mr. Van Zandt, the law school’s dean, is squarely in Ms. Dohrn’s camp.

”All the things she’s done here in the 10 years she’s been here have just been terrific,” Mr. Van Zandt said. ”If someone continues to advocate breaking the law, that would be a problem. She’s told me she abhors violence, past, present or future.”

For Stanley Fish, dean of the college of liberal arts and sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the question is whether Ms. Dohrn can do the job that Northwestern wants. ”Is she any different a person in terms of obligations now than she was before Sept. 11?” he said.

The answer, Mr. Fish said, is ”No.”

That they became respected members of Chicago elite is accurate. That they are respected members of the U of Chi faculty is also true. That certainly doesn’t make them mainstream America by any means. That their butts never saw a prison cell is a reflection of how asshats of that era were protected by other elites.

Arthur “Darkness At Noon” Koestler dissected this brand of militant loser-psycho right after WW II (the exact quotes are available in his book “Bricks To Babel“, hardback edition, page 240: “The Seven Deadly Fallacies”: including “The Confusion of Left and East”, “The Fallacy of False Equation:, and ::The Confusion Between Short-Term and Long-Term” aims, etc.), and warned the West not to fall for their pseudo-philosophical, insultingly vicious moral-equivalency, and essentially nihilistic, anarchistic madness.

Barack is such a neophyte, he apparently doesn’t know the difference between tenured and terrorist.

It’s from this – this moral equivalency between our sins and others – that I think Obama gets the idea that we should sit down and negotiate with the likes of Iran and North Korea.

They’re our equals for we have done just as much wrong as they have.

I guess the fact Ayers and Dohrn are alive at all is proof the government does not operate a hit squad. In any country which had the form of government they advocate, these two would have disappeared long ago. In some ways, I am sad we do not have some folks with a 00 license to deal with scum like these two. That they are allowed to teach others is of grave concern. I wonder just what constitutes an english assignment from Willam Ayers? Reading Mao’s book?

AprilOrit on April 23, 2008 at 6:22 PM

These two “unsavory characters”, unrepentant terrorists really, are part of a pattern of association that says much about Obambi’s world view. His mentor in Hawaii was an aging Communist (forget the name). He adopted a church in Chicago with a minister preaching “black liberation theology”, i.e. racism, anti-Americanism, and Marxism, and formed a close association with them for 20 years (donating over $22K last year). His friend Tony Rezko donated cash to Obambi which apparently came from a convicted arms dealer and associate of Saddam Hussein. His wife is a vulgar anti-American.

Do you you suppose that when Obambi hob-nobs with friends and associates he is cavorting with conservatives? He’s hanging out with the extreme Marxist left. We don’t know much about what he actually thinks, because he is careful to speak in platitudes, but we do know from his speeches and debates that he thinks of America as a class-ridden, racist society, and that our military and our efforts in defense of the Free World are misguided or wrong. This fits in pretty well with the folks he hangs out with.

That’s the picture and it isn’t pretty. This guy could actually become President of the United States. We should use everything we can find about him that serves to discredit his candidacy in the eyes of the American public. If John McCain is too timorous to use the Weathermen, I sure hope some enterprising 527 does.

Those who can do, get on with it. Those who can’t, teach.

Look at Ayer’s booking photo-Loser. Dorhn shows at least a little defiance.

How easy it is to trash capitalism when you are financially secure. How easy for Bloomberg and Feinstein to rant about “too many guns” when they have taxpayer (and armed) security details and all the money they could ever want to hire all the (armed) security they could ever want. They won’t live with the results, so why not gather the loons to you…it’s votes and continuation of a job…and my ego NEEDS this, who are you to tell me I can’t indulge?

I would love to see Ayers’ and Dorhn’s tax returns. How much money comes from what they do, vice what they got from Daddy and Mommy.

I don’t think inheritance taxes should exist, BTW. I do a difference between those who use the inheritance to build, and those who use it to destroy themselves or others.

Can’t control it, so the tax should be killed and let us live with the results, roses and thorns.

Definately wasn’t me, could you have seen April in the date format and assumed it was me? I have never posted about poverty or even admitted to helping at a food bank/soup kitchen until today. I don’t really know that much about poverty to post about it freely.

Hey april from Power Line, is that you?

And for like the 4th or 5th time, no.

I have never posted at Powerline in my life, hardly read them.

Wright is a race baiting wacko but does not rise to the level of being a despicable person. By contrast, the weathermen are truly detestable people.

One is struck by their language then and now which seeks to justify their actions by pointing to a larger injustice that “required them to act” and “escalate their reaction to greater crimes”. In fact they are delusional homocidal nihilists and deserving the full brunt of public scorn.

Given their rhetoric, may we suppose Bill and Bernadine have divested themselves of their wealth and if not, why not?

Oh, of course not…..that part of their struggle repertoire was dispensed when they decided to grow up, be responsible and “become a pig”. “Wild man!”

How easy it is to trash capitalism when you are financially secure.
