‘Activist’ Bill Ayers: ‘I’m against violence’

Amazingly some 40-plus years after his days as a terrorist people still invite this loser to speak at a college campus. But hey, all he did was some property damage or some, unlike that murderer John McCain.

The United States is the most violent country that has ever been created, Ayers said.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., committed daily war crimes in Vietnam “and I get asked about violence when what I did was some destruction of property to issue a scream and cry against an illegal war in which 6,000 people a week are being killed,” Ayers said. “Six thousand a week being killed and I destroyed some property. Show me the equivalence. You should ask John McCain that question … I’m against violence.”

“To conflate a group of fundamentalist people [in Boston] who are nihilistic in some way with a group of people who spent their lives trying to oppose the murder of 6,000 people a week … and still the killing went on. And still the killing went on. What would you have done?” Ayers said. “There’s no equivalence [with Boston]. Property damage. That’s what we did.”

In other words, he was an incompetent terrorist, as were his dead buddies.

The Weather Underground never accomplished what it set out to do: to end the Vietnam War, to end the system that created war and to create a more-just society, he said.

Ayers said he still holds out hope for the creation of a peace culture and a peace movement in the nation.

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.

Sure, why explain it when you can rationalize it away with some fiction and revisionist history.

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?”

Actually, on that day McCain was a POW in Vietnam, where he was held prisoner from 1967 to 1973. But according to this “activist” Bill Ayers, he murdered people that day. What an asshole.

    Hi. I’m a lovely leftist. Decades later, all I can do is lie about what my friends and I did. That, and hide behind other people. People that we hate.

    Stop looking at me like I’m an idiot.

    So, aside from being a revisionist of history, Bill Ayers has decided that it is not intent, but the action, that makes one criminal?

    That his compatriots were killed by their own bomb, one they intended to use on American citizens, isn’t the point. Apparently it would only have mattered if they HAD used it.

    I would bet that bomb-making was illegal in 1970, but I’m sure that if true, that little nuance would escape Ayers anyway.

    He is the very model of a modern Leftist, isn’t he? Facts be damned! He and his meant well, and that is all that should matter.

    Absolutely disgusting.

    The Weather Underground never accomplished what it set out to do: to end the Vietnam War, to end the system that created war and to create a more-just society, he said.

    Actually, The Weathermen wanted to destroy the U.S. government and replace it with a Marxian socialist state; the Vietnam War was just a convenient hook to hang their activities on. Even Wikipedia, not exactly a right-wing outfit, admits it;

    The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, was an American radical left organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Originally called Weatherman, the group became known colloquially as the Weathermen. Weatherman first organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) composed for the most part of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the overthrow of the US government.

    So, Bill is lying again. And in other late-breaking news, it’s raining outside, and yes, it’s still wet.
