Good news from Bill Ayers: My terrorism was nothing like the terrorism in Boston

posted at 2:41 pm on May 6, 2013 by Allahpundit

The Tsarnaevs wanted to kill people, whereas the Weather Underground mostly wanted to blow up property except for that time they built nail bombs to kill soldiers at a dance at Fort Dix but ended up blowing themselves up instead. Oh, and the time they probably killed a cop in San Francisco and wounded nine others. There’s the big distinction.

Two mild surprises here. One: Ayers doesn’t attempt to defend the Tsarnaevs’ motive, even though it was anti-war of a sort. This is a prime opportunity to lecture about “blowback” by the oppressed people of the Muslim world who object to U.S. imperialism, etc etc etc, even while condemning the tactics, but he doesn’t take it. Maybe the politics of defending the Tsarnaevs, however mildly, are too toxic even for him. Two: Almost 50 years later, he’s still looking for ways to defend the Weathermen’s tactics even though he loses more than he gains by it. You would think he’d regret setting bombs, even “just” to destroy property, if only because it made it easier for hawks at the time to discredit the wider left as radicals and terrorists. Nope.

There is no relationship at all between what Weather Underground members did and the bombings that two brothers allegedly committed on April 15 in Massachusetts, Ayers said in response to a reporter’s question. No one died in the Weather Underground bombings…

In his talk to the crowd, Ayers mentioned that in 1970, he lost three friends in the Weather Underground, including his lover, Diana Oughton. He did not explain in his talk how they died – they were killed when nail bombs they were making in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew up.

Telling the crowd the circumstances of those deaths would have been “inappropriate,” Ayers said afterward. “Everybody here knows,” he said.

Authorities said the bombs were intended to be used at a dance at the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey.

“No one knows for sure but I think they were. And had they carried it out it would have been a catastrophe,” Ayers said. “But they didn’t and it didn’t happen. But what did happen is, on that same day John McCain murdered civilians. Do we have any responsibility for that? Should there be any reconciliation for that? Should he tell the truth about it?”

Isn’t it in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s interest at this point to tell the feds that his real motive for the bombings was to protest income inequality or something? Given Ayers’s example, what does he have to lose by doing that? He’s not looking for jihadi martyrdom, as best we can tell. If he was, he would have shot it out with Boston PD instead of running over his brother’s face in his haste to escape. He’s got ace death-penalty public defender Judy Clarke on his legal team too, which presumably means he’s going to fight for life in prison. Even if he ends up sentenced to death, he could use the semi-sympathetic “bad tactics, worthy cause” press he’d get in the aftermath, which might lead to a commutation down the line when the public isn’t paying as much attention. And if he gets life, he’d enjoy a certain ideological currency from behind bars, which might be valuable to a man staring at 50+ years in the pen. Parole and a professorship are probably out of the question, but if you’re Tsarnaev, you might as well play the odds. Better to be the poor man’s Bill Ayers than the poor man’s Ramzi Yousef.

If Ayers Weather Underground bombs hadn’t gone off prematurely the plan was to set them off that evening at a dance for noncommissioned officers and their dates at the Fort Dix, New Jersey Army base, to “bring the [Vietnam] war home”…

In dunno… just when McCain is getting all snuggly with Obama and the media again, here comes this fireball of an accusation. Does he feel conflicted? I mean, here’s Obama’s good buddy dissing McCain big time.

But I’m guessing that he doesn’t feel conflicted at all. Ayers isn’t conservative enough to merit a response.

Greenwich Village townhouse explosion

Shortly before noon on Friday, March 6, 1970, people in the townhouse were assembling nail bombs packed with dynamite and roofing nails. Former members of Weatherman later advanced differing claims as to the planned uses of the bombs. According to Mark Rudd, the plan was to set them off that evening at a dance for noncommissioned officers and their dates at the Fort Dix, New Jersey Army base, to “bring the [Vietnam] war home”.

hepcat on May 6, 2013 at 2:52 PM

What he says about John McCain isn’t true. In 1970, McCain was right in the middle of his stint as a POW. How was he killing civilians from inside his bamboo cell?

tvor03 on May 6, 2013 at 2:52 PM

This is like the old Democrat thug muscle of its KKK, where it was an evil to kill a white but okay to kill a black. Nuance, nuance.

I hope this nutcase just realized he delegitimized Islamic terrorism to some degree; he and his kind are ‘respectable’ terrorists.

I guess we Conservatives are the dummies here, for being so anti-intellectual that we see all terrorists the same, and believe there is only one just and fitting punishment for every one of them.

NPR is on the wrong side of most issues, but a few years ago Fresh Air did an interview of Ayers that contained a critical question. The host asked Ayers how he knew for sure that exploding that amount of C-4 in the Pentagon restroom would fail to kill anyone. Ayers admitted that there was no way to guarantee that bomb would only cause property damage. No one died from that bomb only because he was lucky.

You only did properly damage because you blew yourselves up.

But what did happen is, on that same day John McCain murdered civilians. Do we have any responsibility for that? Should there be any reconciliation for that? Should he tell the truth about it?”

LIAR.

6 March 1970: The day that the Greenwich Village townhouse, where 4 WU terrorists were building the bomb for Fort Dix, exploded.

26 October 1967: The day John McCain’s plane was shot down and he was taken as POW, which he would remain until 14 March 1973.

When the bomb prematurely exploded in Greenwich Village, John McCain had been a POW for 863 days (2 years, 4 months, and 9 days). He would remain a POW for another 1,105 days (3 years, and 9 days).

John McCain, however much I dislike the man today, murdered NO CIVILIANS on the day that the Weather Underground’s bomb exploded. He was being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton.

Bill Ayers is a POS and a very lucky one at that. He should be in prison.

Resist We Much on May 6, 2013 at 3:00 PM

He’s either a terrorist murderer or “just a guy in the neighborhood”; take your pick. If ones view of Ayers is the canary in the coal mine indicator of your view of the country and the world, I know which side Obama and the Progressive Democrats take.

I was only nine then, the year Ayers’s Weathermen tried to murder me.In February 1970, my father, a New York State Supreme Court justice, was presiding over the trial of the so-called “Panther 21,” members of the Black Panther Party indicted in a plot to bomb New York landmarks and department stores. Early on the morning of February 21, as my family slept, three gasoline-filled firebombs exploded at our home on the northern tip of Manhattan, two at the front door and the third tucked neatly under the gas tank of the family car. (Today, of course, we’d call that a car bomb.) A neighbor heard the first two blasts and, with the remains of a snowman I had built a few days earlier, managed to douse the flames beneath the car. That was an act whose courage I fully appreciated only as an adult, an act that doubtless saved multiple lives that night.

That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, “tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.”

What was the political goal changes that the Boston Bombers were trying to accomplish? Does not look like they had any. Theirs was more along the lines of a columbine violence as an answer to being unpopular.

astonerii on May 6, 2013 at 3:49 PM

Two mild surprises here. One: Ayers doesn’t attempt to defend the Tsarnaevs’ motive, even though it was anti-war of a sort. This is a prime opportunity to lecture about “blowback” by the oppressed people of the Muslim world who object to U.S. imperialism, etc etc etc, even while condemning the tactics, but he doesn’t take it. Maybe the politics of defending the Tsarnaevs, however mildly, are too toxic even for him.

Blue State.

Remember after 9/11 how Michael Moore couldn’t understand why the terrorists attacked New York and Washington, because all those people had voted for Al Gore? Same thing here, only Ayers is smart enough to keep his thoughts to himself.

If the Tsarnaevs had attacked downtown Dallas or Phoenix during a major event, then we would have heared about “blowback” from Ayers and others. But this was in the capital city of one of the bluest of Blue States and during it’s most famous annual sporting event, where scores of liberal Democrat voters were in attendance. But Boston liberals — including those at Harvard and the city’s other universities — are far less open to hearing about “blowback” especially if they know anyone who may have had an arm or leg blown off or an eye blown out by the Tsarnaevs’ bombs.

jon1979 on May 6, 2013 at 3:49 PM

More @ Kent student newspaper this morning;

Ayers’s speech focused on the importance of remembering history and using imagination for social justice. He talked about losing his own friends during that period.

Just as grief was about to overwhelm me, I had a revelation,” Ayers said. “Action is the antidote to hopelessness, not optimism, which pretends to predict a rosy future, and not its depressing twin pessimism, which shares a deterministic world view and an orthodox turn of mind. Our fight is for social justice and action is necessary if we are to achieve it.

He’s talking about “his own friends” who self-detonated while conspiring to commit mass murder at a Fort Dix dance.

Keep in mind, that Charlie_Manson-esque “revelation” that “action is necessary” is Ayers’ euphemacism for “setting bombs;

I don’t regret setting bombs,” said Ayers in 2001, “I feel we didn’t do enough.” Contemplating whether or not he might again use bombs against the U.S. sometime in the future, he wrote: “I can’t imagine entirely dismissing the possibility.”

I agree with Bill Ayers – his attacks on the American people are completely different than Al Qaedas’ or even the Boston bombers’ attack on the United States/Americans!

His TERRORIST attacks are far more despicable and treasonous because he perpetrated them on his own fellow Americans!

Ayers so showed as much concern over the lives of American citizens as Obama did the night he betrayed & abandoned the Americans who fought for their lives for 12 hours, waiting for help that never came, in Benghazi on 9/11/12! Of course Hollywood made a movie making Ayers’ & the Weathrman Underground’s actions ‘romantic’ & somehow honorable/praise-worthy, when the fact is he is just as much a Terrorist who targeted American Citizens as those bombers in Boston did!

Good to know he was the complete package pig.

Why is Bill Ayers still walking the streets?

GoodAg77 on May 6, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Because Daddy was a multimillionaire with very deep political connections in Chicago and bought off the Democrats and a Federal judge. Then, mysteriously, the FBI suddenly copped to violating some wiretap law in searching for Ayers and his fellow terrorists, and all charges were dropped.

Those wiretap laws are legal today, of course.

Look up the names that Bill Ayers gave his children.

Then look up the meaning of those names.

The other difference is that Bill Ayers is a dirty little misogynistic coward who probably has kiddie porn on his computer. He’s a small, small man in a big, big world. He’s been a miserable failure at everything he’s ever tried to accomplish.

Well, feel free to tell me what their motive was. What their political change demands were. I have not heard it yet. As far as I can tell, there were no demands made. Bill Ayers made specific demands for political action.
I have not been following this that closely, so maybe I missed their political demands. Feel free to fill me in.

Discover the Networks on Bill Ayers

There are many links with lots more info.

All told, Ayers and the Weather Underground were responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S. “I don’t regret setting bombs,” said Ayers in 2001, “I feel we didn’t do enough.” Contemplating whether or not he might again use bombs against the U.S. sometime in the future, he wrote: “I can’t imagine entirely dismissing the possibility.”

In 1970, Ayers’ then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by hundreds of Army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Ayers himself attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, “tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.” Notably, Ayers’ fingerprints were found at the bomb-making site, along with an assortment of anti-personnel weapons, stabbing implements, C-4 plastic explosive, and dozens of Marxist-Leninist publications.

From last December:

In a December 2012 speech at New York University, Ayers emphasized the importance of using the education system, among other things, to indoctrinate young people and thereby transform American society. Said Ayers: “If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon. We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.

Bill ayers tried to kill but now wants credit for failing to kill.

Used the same type of bomb guts.

SparkPlug on May 6, 2013 at 4:20 PM

Ayer’s bombs didn’t kill anybody (except the bomb makers). But that’s just because his organization was more incompetent than the Tsarnaev’s, not because there was any moral difference.

you how how “good” people, when mentioning things from Nazi Germany that parallel today, fall all over themselves to ASSURE the public that they IN NO WAY imply that we ARE like Nazi Germany, only that there are some interesting parallels about what happened in Germany that are happening today.

I mean, c’mon, Germany had GAS OVENS and shot people in ditches and etc. etc.

The USA has set up killing fields in almost every state, the state pays for many / most, and it’s done to eradicate a race, AND the vast majority of the nation isn’t even aware of it, but nah, we’re MUCH better than the Nazi’s.

Hey, Billy, I hear they are having a hard time finding a place to bury the dead bomber-boy. Can’t you build a shrine in your back yard for him?

Thanks for that.

You know, only Marxist professors get a pass for lying out of their ass to promote the cause.

BigAlSouth on May 6, 2013 at 4:45 PM

But what did happen is, on that same day John McCain murdered civilians.

As much as I loathe McCain as a Republican politician, this makes me want to shove a loaded pressure cooker up Bill Ayer’s backside. (Normally, I would be content with a convenient tree, but this is especially obnoxious.)
