Bill Ayers’ Friends

Filed under: 2008 Election — DRJ @ 5:02 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

Beldar could never vote for someone who calls Bill Ayers a friend:

“[Bill] Ayers was a twisted dollop of evil scum in the 1960s and 1970s, and he’s still evil scum. It is absolutely inconceivable to me that someone who might become the president of the United States could call such a man ‘friend.'”

I agree, and I sincerely hope it’s not just Texans like us who feel that way.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly, but our morally – challenged mayor and University of Illinois Chancellors apparently feel differently about Ayers.

  2. Those magazine pictures of Ayers dancing on and standing atop the US Flag should be widely distributed. Ok, the bombings were a long time ago. He and Bernadette never paid a price for any of that and he remains unrepentant, wishing he had done further bombings.

    Dude would fit in with these dipwad protestors in Denver:

  3. Contempt for Ayers runs wide and deep, from sea to shinning sea, from the north country borderline to the Rio Grande.

    Ropelight (4a83c9)

  4. Are there any pix of Bill Ayers with BHO?
    If so, they need to be matched up with the one of Ayers disrespecting the flag, and plastered all over working-class neighborhoods in PA, MI, OH, and CO.

  5. To someone like Obama, Ayers seemed pretty “mainstream” until he saw how the Ayers-Obama relationship played in the America of the benighted bitter clingers. Ditto for the rabid spewings of Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

    Obama and the little lady are both so immersed in the Lefty-academic house of “Hate America” mirrors that they really had no idea that the Ayers-Wright brand of radicalism wwould play so badly with the “regular” people. No doubt, if you could compel them to answer honestly, Obama and his lovely wife would tell you that the common revulsion of mainstream voters with those sorts of ideas was due entirely to a lack of sophistication on the part of the proles — they’re not really educated enough to understand why a reflexively critical take on America is entirely justified.

    In holding these views, Obama shows himself to be a callow, unseasoned intellect who has never adulterated the leftist-literati views he absorbed in college with any real-life experience of his own. I mean, what real-life experience does Obama have? It would have been immensely helpful for Obama had he, say, run an actual business for a few years after law school. Let him see how an economy works from the ground up, and how leftist idealism falls apart in the face of the reality of the responsibilities of management.

    Since this never happened, we’ve got a candidate from a major party who’s never run a shoeshine stand but who is so brimming with confidence in his own abilities that he’s going to transform major U.S. industries according to his dogmatic leftist preconceptions, all in a matter of months. In his spare time he’ll cause the oceans to recede. Unrestrained by the need to palliate the voters in the center, I have no doubt that Obama will give free reign to his ridiculous beliefs and the result for America will be a catastrophe.

    That a guy with so patent a lack of depth, insight and wisdom could be preferred by half the electorate makes me deeply pessimistic about the future of the country.

  6. Go read the wiki article on Ayres. It’s been sanitized corrected to the point that Ayres will be canonized.

    Actual (83870b)

  7. Were Obama running a platform that had been written to exactly reflect my own ideology, being associated with Ayers alone would be enough for me to vote for his opponent.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  8. The Dems are currently honoring Sen. “I can swim” Kennedy and Baracky. After the horrific dentures on San Fran Nan, this is turning out to be a truly disturbing evening of political theatre.

    JD (5f0e11)

  9. Completely off-topic — and I denounce myself — but Katie Couric just told a national television audience that “Michelle Obama has a mind of her own”.

    Maybe Michelle’s “for the first time in my adult life …” comment was premature.

    Maybe Dan Rather’s “they’ve tarted-up the news” comment was dead-on. [I know, I know . . . I denounce myself again.]

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  10. How did a Marxist con man pass muster with DNC vetters?

    Nathan Jessup (d671ab)

  11. In another bit of off-topic news (is Patterico going to open up a convention thread?), our 39th POTUS, James Earl Carter, Jr. declared tonight that The Messiah, the Lightworker — Barack Hussein Obama the 1st, will END RACISM as we know it.

    In a totally related story: Ted Kennedy, speaking at the podium, just talked about race.

    Did you see that, Oiram?

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  12. “…DNC vetters?”

    Pass muster?
    Hell, they probably thought he was a little bit too right of center.

    Another Drew (6c5558)

  13. Icy, completely off topic too but blaming you and your lead (I, too denounce myself), Cindy McCain must have a mind of her own too but doesn’t need Katie Couric’s keen professional observation to validate it. McCain is on her way to visit casualties of war in Georgia, somewhat under the radar and unfortunately she’ll miss Mrs. Obama’s further instructions to Americans but you gotta love her (McCain’s) timing amusing… I like that there was no self-promotion by McCain re the trip…not that the media would even notice even if it weren’t convention night.

  14. Obama will end racism, and straight versus gay. This is politics if the absurd.

    JD (5f0e11)

  15. #13 – Dana

    True, but now the media will be compelled to mention it tomorrow.

    That doesn’t mean that they will, but they sure will look bad if they don’t.

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  16. Olberdouche just had an Olbergasm, on air.

    JD (5f0e11)

  17. Icy, completely off topic too but blaming you and your lead

    — I denounce my influence.

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  18. JD, I just snorted an entire slice of pepperoni pizza up into my nasal cavity. You will be receiving an E.R. bill shortly.

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  19. Sorry, Icy. But holy Jeebus. You could not make this shite up. All they are missing is a midget, a clown, and a monkey riding a unicycle. I denounce myself.

    JD (5f0e11)

  20. JD, the clown will show up to accept the VP nomination later in the week.

    Hugh Hewitt was cracking me up as I drove home from the office calling Biden the Cliff Claven candidate.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  21. Not only is Billy evil, he is weak. He was known for saying “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.” But, he now lives with his father. His father is Tom Ayers the retired head of Commonwealth Edison. Looks like Billy is living off the profits of a big business. What a typical boomer: valueless.

    Dreadnaugh (1dc42f)

  22. Baracky is threatening stations that run the anti-Ayers ad while simultaneously chucking Ayers under the bus.

    Pablo (99243e)

  23. That circa 60-70s photo of Ayers with the little arrogant head tilt certainly displays a young man badly in need of a can of sum whoopass.

    PC14 (ec0516)

  24. #19 – JD

    All they are missing is a midget, a clown, and a monkey riding a unicycle.

    — I thought you said that Olbermann and Matthews were there.

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  25. Icy – I wish they were mimes instead of clowns.

    JD (5f0e11)

  26. All they are missing is a midget, a clown, and a monkey riding a unicycle. I denounce myself.

    What? They had Howard Dean up there. He’s at least the last two.

    Steverino (1dda08)

  27. He has a funny name, but she is not referencing race.

    Chris just spit at Buchanon about religion, when Pat noted that is discussing their values, did not mention religion.

    Fantastic, powerful visuals … would work great. But O’Bomber would call the DOJ. Kind of makes you wonder who he’d call if he ends up POTUS.

  29. O’Bomber would call the DOJ. Kind of makes you wonder who he’d call if he ends up POTUS.

    — Well, he was gonna tap the Silky Pony to be his AG, that is until Edwards ‘tapped’ himself under the bus.

    Icy Truth (b746b7)

  30. #28, “Kind of makes you wonder who he’d call…”

    Like Robert Redford in “THE CANDIDATE,” once elected, new politicians usually rely on the successful campaign team managers.

    That includes the big money boys.

    Ropelight (4a83c9)

  31. Well, he was gonna tap the Silky Pony to be his AG

    And you know damn this Convention for taking things off the real topics.

    Vermont Neighbor (a066ed)

  32. That includes the big money boys.

    Ropelight, maybe the WH will redecorate with Gilbert-style portraits of the Daley family. Get rid of all that kitschy Washington and Adams stuff. Bill Ayers smiling down in the Lincoln bdrm.

  33. Well folks, McCain has won an endorsement that shoudl REALLY pu him over the top — LORENZO LAMAS !

  34. VT Neighbor,

    BHO has called the Feds demanding they stop such an ad tying him to Ayers.

    PCD (5c49b0)

  35. tap the Silky Pony

    I’m filing this for later use, along with “waxing the dolphin,” “choking the chicken” and “shellacking the shilaleagh.” An interesting metaphor for the DNC in toto.

    carlitos (39ff54)

  36. And this on a site that demands that Jesse Helms be treated with respect, that goes along with the racebaiting logic of republican central command? And yes the Clintons followed the same logic, it used to be called “the southern strategy.”
    And yesterday the cops may have thwarted an assassination attempt.
    Not “one of us.” ” A secret Muslim.” Rumors fly. And even David Gergen sees the obvious in McCain’s racist bullshit.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfXvK84MPqQ

    And now I’m seeing comments on Patterico from fans of the Paul Hill. What’s next encomiums for William Calley and the Guardsmen at Kent State?
    And you have to gall to call someone “scum” for something he did 40 years ago, when Obama was as 5.

    Someday maybe they’ll be a discussion of policy on this site.

    JAR (b249e3)

  37. Not “one of us.” ” A secret Muslim.”

    I would remind you that “a secret muslim” was a bit from the primary… It’s from fellow Dems.

    And you have to gall to call someone “scum” for something he did 40 years ago

    We will when he not only does not appear sorry for what he did, but states publicly that he wishes they had done more?

    You bet we will…

    the thing about forgiveness is that you have to seek it first.

    Scott Jacobs (a1c284)

  38. JAR, you are an idiot. Ayers should be in jail, and not at all in a position of influence.

    Additionally, fools like you excuse the “Hate America” mentality of a terrorist just because a Democrat Presidential Candidate used him as a mentor and NEVER criticized what he did and advocates.

    PCD (5c49b0)

  39. Bill Ayres and Bambi, Ivory and Ebony. These two guys are thick as thieves, brothers under the skin. Chicago’s own codfish aristocrats, pushing commie pap dressed in progressive pigtails and pink ribbons. Bambi mouths the words, but Bill Ayres writes the copy.

    Make no mistake, a vote for Bambi is homage for Bill Ayres brand of post 60’s political terrorism.

    Ropelight (4a83c9)

  40. JAR – Why do you think Obama is lying about the full extent of his relationship with Ayers? Isn’t it going to be embarrassing for him to correct the record now?

    daleyrocks (d9ec17)

  41. I see JAR dropped some knowledge on all you racists.

    JD (5f0e11)

  42. PCD @ 6:45am

    BHO has called the Feds demanding they stop such an ad tying him to Ayers.

    Could qualify as the most surreal moment in this whole Obama-is-Patriotic whitewash.

    And what about O’ s secret location last night? Someone’s home somewhere? Or Dick Cheney’s personal underground bunker? Never really know who O’Bomber calls a friend.

    Vermont Neighbor (a066ed)

  43. Billy is just a cool laid back kat. Sure, he did some bombings, but that’s cool. He works for the government now, man. You all need to mellow out and be groovy. We all need to return to the 60s, man.

    Dreadnaught (1aaf2a)

  44. ” this whole Obama-is-Patriotic whitewash.”

    JAR (b249e3)

  45. Jar. Read PCD’s link. Shouldn’t be a big argument re Obama’s close association with Ayers and its obvious conclusion for most of us. Hey, even OBAMA’s uncomfortable with it.

    ** Obama asks DOJ to silence ad tying him to 60s radical **

    Vermont Neighbor (a066ed)

  46. “Ivan Stickles, a carpenter, worked on his motorcycle in his driveway in Hopewell. Mr. Stickles, 57, is not taking what he sees as a gamble on Obama.
    “There’s this e-mail that he didn’t shake hands with the troops,” Mr. Stickles said of a rumor that is false. “I don’t have the time to check out if it’s true, but if it is, it’s very offensive.”
    That’s your friends spreading these lies.

    Here:

    With a three pointer attached.

    JAR (b249e3)

  47. Also, this is very rich. Can anyone see Obama requesting help in Cuba, China or Venezuela after his close political pals bombed and schemed against the gov’t? Would Hugo help?? If the good Saddam were still in power, would he help Obama or Ayers?

    Vermont Neighbor (a066ed)

  48. You greedy neocons are degusting apologists for McCain and the Joooos. At long last I have seen the light and realize that Obama will take care of all of the wants and needs of the underclass in America, both legals and illegals. Love2008/Oriam, Peter, Levi, Ehreneberg et al were right. Drink the kool-aid and join us. To not do so would be racist of you.
    It soothes my soul that Obama indeed supports free speech…Yes, We can…shut you up! It makes no sense to beliitle true patriots such as Ayers, Dohrn, Wright and Rezno. Like Olbermann and Matthews, I too have become sexually aroused by Obama’s Magic Negro charisma. Even if the great Mayor Daley and Soros are pulling the puppet strings because they are men of great wisdom and vision. And don’t forget Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam and New Black Panthers. All hail Obama! Uh, uh, uh, Umgahwah, bang, bang, beep, beep, white blood, black power and riots, looting, mayhem and no peace/street justice if you wingnuts manage to steal THIS election.

    Hey everybody – don’t forget to include a link to the ad that Obama doesn’t want anyone to see in your emails.

    For the purpose of discussion only, of course.

  50. Guys, while troll-feeding is bad for one’s health, today’s Ehrenstein-land-link to shakespeare’s sister is a particularly keen insight into moral equivalence. I am going to regret leaving a comment over there…

    When David’s links come up I always check by right-clicking them and checking “Properties” so I know where I’m considering going (if it’s a place I don’t want to give a hit to, that’s good to know).

    This link though was really funny and worth the click. McCain’s responsible for other people’s choices to drink too much, so naturally it’s OK that a former-bomber friend of Obama thinks he (Ayers) “should have done more” way back when. Great comment of yours over there too.

    no one you know (1f5ddb)

  52. Go to your search engine and type in McCain + Keating Five. I did- on the advice of several people from Arizona!

  54. McCain must explain his connection to a convicted felon.

    Would you care to compare, point by point, the assertations made at that link, David? I’m more than willing to, once I’m off work…

    you game?

    Scott Jacobs (a1c284)

  55. Scott, David has no clue why that link is hilariously lame and really only emphasizes what a piece of debris Ayers is.

    It almost looks like a planted bit of satire that David did not get.

    McCain must explain his connection to a convicted felon.

    — Ehrenstein must explain his connection to reality.

    And sanity

    And humanity

  57. Still nothing, David?

    Didn’t think so. God forbid you actually have to back up your insanity…
