Bill Ayers is a name well known to those who believe the mainstream media failed miserably in 2008 vetting then candidate for President, Barack Obama. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Ayers, here is a brief summary of his controversial past with the group know as the Weather Underground.
The Weather Underground Organization, or WUO, was a domestic radical left-wing group founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan… first organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)…their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the overthrow of the US government.
Bill Ayers and his partner Bernadine Dohrn are terrorists, responsible for the bombings between 1970 – 1975 of police headquarters, courthouses, and banks, along with the Pentagon and the U. S. Capitol.
In an exclusive interview released this week, Bill Ayers sets the record straight about his time in the WUO, and his relationship with Barack Obama.
When Ayers is asked, All things considered, would you do it again the same way with the Weather Underground? Ayers responds:
In terms of opposition to the war, I have no regrets. People want me to say I really regret being in extreme opposition of the war, and I don’t regret that. I’m happy for every cringing politician, every restrained bombing mission, and every piece of destroyed military property.
One wonders if Ayers is happy for all of the ‘cringing’ done by employees of the banks, police headquarters, and courthouses when the WUO bombed their places of work?
When asked about the “big hullabaloo during the 2008 presidential election over your relationship to Obama. What is or was your relationship to him?” Ayers said:
The truth is exactly what he (Barack Obama) said and what the campaign said in 2008. David Axelrod said we were friendly, that was true; we served on a couple of boards together, that was true; he held a fundraiser in our living room, that was true…Hyde Park in Chicago is a tiny neighborhood, so when he said I was “a guy around the neighborhood,” that was true.
It is difficult to imagine anyone with a love of their country socializing with terrorists like Ayers and Dohrn, let alone launching a political career in the couple’s home. However, this is exactly what Barack Obama did when running for state senate in Illinois……….
