In much of the Vietnam War, however, civilians were rounded up by some people in the military and killed - sometimes in atrocious, gratuitous ways. Therefore, by the right's own logic (particularly, by the logic of those who have been suggesting violence as response to gun control legislation), the WUO's actions were more legitimate than certain actions in the Vietnam War just as Ayers is saying. Color me surprised that certain people on the right abandon that logic when 1) someone on the left uses it, 2) the American military is criticized.

    *Don't bother responding to me by saying that I approve of the WUO's violence or that I hate American troops or some other predictable response. I don't.
    What's funny is how Leftists stick up for this scumbag.

    Very true, and not only defend the man as an educator, but Ayres is also on a panel that decides the curriculum for the public education system at the high school level, I believe....So, this is pervasive, and one of the factors that we on the right talk about when addressing the liberal control over our children's education these days.

    Ayres is a terrorist, and so is everyone associated with him during that time. He should be NOWHERE near deciding anything concerning the nations children.

Let's not forget that according to Obama's own writings, Communist Frank Marshall Davis was his childhood "mentor" and a close family friend who also relocated to Chicago from Hawaii... But once again, Obama does not support his views either.

    We've heard this all before and it just goes to show how right this is.
    Bill Ayers presidential election controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    During the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, a controversy arose regarding Barack Obama's contact with Bill Ayers, a Distinguished Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a former leader of the Weather Underground, a radical left organization in the 1970s.[1] Investigations by CNN, The New York Times and other news organizations concluded that Obama did not have a close relationship with Ayers.[2][3][4] Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, hosted a gathering at their home in 1995,[5] where Alice Palmer introduced Obama as her chosen successor in the Illinois State Senate.[3][6] Obama and Ayers' nine years of service on the board of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago overlapped three years 19992002.[3][5][6]

    Yup, it's amazing how the left goes out of their way to defend both Ayers and Obama's relationship with the man.

    Blowing people and things up is an odd way to be against violence. Ayers is full of ****.

    I think Bill Ayers and the Weathermen have a lot in common with Wayne LaPierre and the NRA. Both believe in personal freedom, hate the federal government and want to exact fear and revenge. The only difference is Bill Ayers grew up and got smarter...while LaPierre is getting smaller and dumbing down.

    Yeah. So when Ayers buddy and girl friend were killed when the nail bomb they were making blew up, they were just unlucky with their plan to try and exact fear and revenge. Nail Bombs are good at that. I guess Ayers fled after the explosion because he was embarassed.

    I'm going to think that most would view an attempt at equivalism such as this as being astoundingly weak.

    Stop with the jokes, Moot!! LOL!!

    Seriously, though, ther difference between Ayers and LaPierre, is that Ayers comtted treason. He should be tried and sent to the gas chamber for his crimes.

    Who's defending Ayers? They both served on a board of a charitable organization, so what?
