Bill Ayers: Let’s face it, Obama should be on trial for war crimes

posted at 3:51 pm on June 18, 2013 by Allahpundit

And, he’s quick to add, so should every other president of the past century. A fun clip for many reasons. One: Because Ayers is such a far-left caricature, you can bait him all day long knowing to a virtual certainty what his responses will be. The two RCP guys can’t suppress their smirks at how easy it is. There’s a 99 percent chance that he’s going to call O a war criminal and a one percent chance that he’s going to betray his anti-war ethos by defending O’s drone policy out of pure personal loyalty. Either way, it’s news. Two: It’ll never stop being amusing watching leftists express their disappointment in Hopenchange. Obama skeptics had to endure a lot of self-congratulatory piety and messianism from the other side in 2008. Five years later, the faithful are split between those like Ayers who see O as having betrayed The Cause and all the Democrats who’ve contorted themselves into supporting things like NSA surveillance chiefly out of partisan allegiance. They still believe in Hopenchange, it’s just a … different Hopenchange, one which requires collecting Americans’ phone and Internet data. No more messiah, whichever camp you’re in.

Three: The fact that Ayers is quick to mention O’s curiosity when asked what he likes about him is, knowingly or not, almost a goof on Jane Mayer and the liberal intelligentsia for giving Obama a pass on style points for his foreign-policy aggressiveness. As I said once before, it’s a straight line from David Brooks admiring the crease in O’s pants to Mayer et al. deciding that U.S. drones firing missiles at unknown people on the ground in Pakistan is kinda sorta okay because Obama’s smart, thoughtful, morally conflicted about all this, etc. He’s a well-educated, right-thinking liberal who has his stuff together. He’s a lot like them. They trust him. Ayers, at least, refuses to give O a pass on those grounds, although I leave it to you to judge from the clip how deeply troubled he is by Obama’s sins. (“I like him personally. I mean, he’s a really good guy.”) Four: Are we really watching a guy who got off scot-free for domestic terrorism, then crowed about it by declaring that he was “guilty as sin, free as a bird,” complain that someone else isn’t being sufficiently punished for terrorism? What?

Anyway, slow news day. Click the image to watch.

Socialists like Ayers and Obama can’t impose and/or maintain their ‘philosophy’ on people without force or the threat of force. They may be voted into power, but that’s most often done through lies, theft, and intimidation of the opposition. Once in power, they use force via laws that keep the populace in fear.

Socialism can be imposed, while liberty cannot.

AP, you forgot the morsel of them all. Ayers said “he reads” :)

I would argue that liberals are simply incapable of evaluating African-Americans objectively. No matter what Obama say or does, he will still be the beautiful black man who speaks in complete sentences — He Who Cannot Be Disparaged.

Their twisted racism is so obvious to us on the right; but unfortunately liberals are in charge of all our institutions, and we will have to endure this suffocating bias until we say enough is enough.

bobs1196 on June 18, 2013 at 4:07 PM

i can’t take this real seriously. Most people like Ayers are self-aggrandizing narcissists who just want attention and say the most outrageous thing they can think of. Mostly to get attention.

although, i would have liked the interviewer to throw in a couple of other world leaders, Stalin, Mao, etc. so that Anyers would have had to say..yeah, the whole world is guilty of war crimes.

Perfectly captures the demonic character of Ayers. Lest we forget, Ayers’ viciously date raped of Donna Ron.

At first I thought Ayers was joking. I got up; and went to the door. He moved quickly to block me at the doorway. He locked the door and put the chain on it. I went to the couch and sat down and told him that I had no intention of having sex with his roommate and his brother or him. He said that I had no choice but to do as he said if I wanted to get out of there. He claimed that I wouldn’t sleep with his married roommate because he was black — that I was a bigot. I had gone to school with black kids and had them as friends all my life. I couldn’t believe he was saying that to me.

I felt trapped. I had to get out of the situation I was in and because he was so effective a guilt-tripper, I also felt I had to prove to him that I wasn’t a bigot. I got up from the couch and walked over to the black roommate’s bed and put myself on it and he fucked me. I went totally out of my body. I floated beside myself on the outside and above the bed looking at this black stranger fuck me angrily while I hated myself.

After that I had to go lie down on Bill Ayer’s bed for his brother to screw me. Rick Ayers was a decent person, unlike his brother, and couldn’t go through with it He started and stopped and let me go. I also thought I had to let Bill screw me but at that point he unbolted the door and I left.

Shorter Ayers: He’s a war criminal, but who isn’t? Plus I still really love the guy.

The Ayers video and this one are enough to laugh all day.

Of course not.

1. You are an incredible eunuch of a dick.

2. You are one of the 3 Dicks now, Nixon, Obama and Cheney.

Laughing at the left is oodles of fun.

Obama is “Bushhitler” and “Bushchimpey”, on steroids.

When he says “trust us” NO ONE does, No one.

Obama killed the last shred of moral authority and decency of the USA.

The entire world laughs at the USA and at Obama.

Bill Ayers’ hypocrisy on stilts;

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.”

bobs1196 on June 18, 2013 at 4:07 PM

All true, and more:

1. He is not black. He is a half African-Ameircan. Never to confuse the two. In fact the blacks of America, the ones descending from slaves s/b apalled at the immigration bill and the fact that their masters, Obama included, compare their struggles to the ‘plight’ of the illegal aliens.

The black didn’t come to the US voluntarily. NO one has the guts to bring this up. A black leader with steel should shame them all.

2. To your point – they, the leftists, don’t judge Obama and ask so little of him – thus, they are the biggest bigots and racists in the land.

3. They do a big disservice to the blacks who work hard and thrive for their successes and the betterment of their lot and the land.

4. All this is a big disservice to true racism – Obama will have set racsism back by at least 30 years.

5. Obama disappointed none more than American black youth, and blacks in general. He simply doesn’t care about them, nor about the poor and the middle class.

6. Obama only cares about two – himself, and the muzzie brotherhood. The success and power of both are the only things he gives a crap about.

Since people in the FBI, CIA and NSA aren’t psychic(psychics don’t exist.) they could never divert these attacks. Let’s have America bombed on a monthly basis and watch them flap their pie-holes about why they weren’t able to stop terrorist attacks.

It doesn’t matter what policies the government enacts or who is running things, Ayers will characterize them as criminal. This is not news.

Ayers is a Marxist. He thinks the US political and economic systems are fundamentally evil and unjust. ANYTHING done to protect the US is, in his view, immoral and wrong. Because it’s in service to a corrupt political system that serves to protect the economic superstructure – capitalism.

If we were to use the criminal justice system to arrest and try Islamist terrorists, Ayers would say that was unjust since the criminal justice system is corrupt and unjust. Again, anything we do is wrong.

Yeah, yawn, Marxism 101. But Ayers believes all this nonsense.

No — NO ‘credit’. Based on his nature and character, it’s like excusing Manson.

I know what you mean, and I’m not trying to start a debate or otherwise oppose you.

My view is that we quit being ‘nice’ to those like Ayers, and reject them in full. Their motives are NOT worthy of consideration at all; no ‘pass’ for them. And no explanation they offer can vindicate them.

Again — not trying to argue. Because I do not tolerate the murder of the abortionist Tillman, I refuse to tolerate the likes of liberals like Ayers; if I decry acts by certain of my own side, there’s no way I’m going to give any pass to the opposition.
