Conservative bloggers in 2008 discovered Obama’s long-time connection to domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.
Of course, we all remember Obama’s “Bill Ayers is just some guy in my neighborhood” line. That he bumped into Ayers occasionally at the market. I remember picturing their shopping carts colliding, perhaps an orange falling out of Ayers’ basket, the long-time community organizer being the humanitarian that he is, offering to pick it up.
What we didn’t learn until it was too late, however, was that this “just a guy in my neighborhood” line was a downright lie. That Ayers and his domestic terrorist partner in crime Bernardine Dohrn had hosted Obama’s Illinois State Senate campaign in their home in 1995. And that Ayers and Obama had served on two Leftist foundations, the Woods Fund and Chicago Annenberg Project, where they funneled millions of dollars to “social justice” (that is, socialist) groups.
We also learned that when Ayers’ memoir Fugitive Days came out in 2001, he bragged about setting bombs in the 1970s. That he had wished that he had detonated more bombs. That he had desecrated a flag by standing on it as a publicity photo for the book.
The Radical Left have romanticized the 1970s Weather Underground period, with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn being viewed as a type of Bonnie and Clyde, fighting against the slaughter of innocents in Vietnam.
But Vietnam was merely a side issue. The imminent Communist Revolution was the main purpose of the bombings. That is, to facilitate what they believed most Americans wanted: a dictatorial communist utopia via a revolution.
Ayers and Dohrn, being part of the movement that brought forth this supposed revolution, felt of course that they should be part of the communist bureaucracy that would administrate this new way of life.
Of course, the question was asked within our Bonnie and Clyde clique; what to do with those former Americans that rejected communism? The answer had been used before: “re-education camps” (brainwashing to use a more accurate term.) And for those who withstood the brainwashing? Again, using what had been done under other communist revolutions: elimination. Murder, to use a term Bonnie and Clyde loathed to admit.
