Barack Obama Watch: The REAL Bill Ayers Problem


East Lansing, MI – November 30, 2007. Bill Ayers, a close friend of Bert Garskof, speaks at the MSU SDS Reunion. Garskof was a mentor to Ayers and many other SDSers… (Part 1)

As Michelle points out by referring to Sol Stern’s piece in City Journal is “NOT the damage done by the Weather Underground 40 years ago, but the far greater harm inflicted on the nation’s schoolchildren by the political and educational movement in which Ayers plays a leading role today.”

What he can be blamed for is not acknowledging that his neighbor has a political agenda that, if successful, would make it impossible to lift academic achievement for disadvantaged children. As I have shown elsewhere in City Journal, Ayers’s politics have hardly changed since his Weatherman days. He still boasts about working full-time to bring down American capitalism and imperialism. This time, however, he does it from his tenured perch as Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Instead of planting bombs in public buildings, Ayers now works to indoctrinate America’s future teachers in the revolutionary cause, urging them to pass on the lessons to their public school students.

Read the entire piece.

Here is more video of Billy (William) Ayers:


Part Two

Scary anti-Americanism piped into our public schools.

Fancy that……..

Wonder why the private, religious and home school movements are alive and well?

Now, the question and the REAL dilemma/problem for Barack Obama is: Does he subscribe to these EXTREME and RADICAL anti-American views in public school educational indoctrination policy?

What say you, Barry?

Barack Obama Watch: Comparing Bill Ayers and Tom Coburn


  • Bert Garskof

    Senator McCain suffers from a convenient historic amnesia as he carps about Bill Ayers. Nothing that supposed urban terrorist Bill Ayers said or did could compare to the mass destruction, the death and tragedy brought to the Vietnamese by McCain and the armed forces he blindly served. Better patriots than he saw the war on Vietnam for what it was – mass murder from the air and on the ground. Murder most foully unjustified. Justified not by international law, nor the US Constitution, nor the Charter of the United Nations. Nor were our chances of winning the war supported by the long history of the conflict, or by the wishes of the masses of Vietnamese people. In fact, President Eisenhower said that if we allowed an election (something we never did) in Vietnam, 90% of the people would elect Ho Chi Min, the man at the head of the forces opposing us. Nor was the war supported by the American people as a whole. Most of us were horrified at the deadly force and murderous weapons of mass destruction brought down on the Vietnamese. From high altitude bombing to napalm to rapid firing multiple barrel machine guns, our air and ground forces killed an estimated 2 million people. We actually rained down more bombs on the small country of Vietnam than were dropped by all participants in World War II on the whole planet. Nor was it, by the end, supported by many of the young men and women serving in that un-winnable and morally untenable war. Many service men refused to fight the Vietnamese. Many young men fought the draft, fought the intrusion of ROTC on campuses. Pilots refused to take part in this immoral action. One was a friend of mine, Captain Dale Noyd, who was Court Martialed. Were Dale, now deceased several years, to come back and run for president and were he to point to his war record, I would say here is a man who could serve the country as he did during the Vietnam War. Whereas, Senator McCain represents today, all that was sordid and cowardly in those years. He reaps no glory for, nor brings any moral rectitude to his campaign because of his years flying high tech missions over Vietnam. His actions then against the Vietnamese, as his rah-rah support of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan now condemn him, most profoundly condemn him.

    Oh please!

    Bill Ayers is a domestic terrorist that tried to kill and did help kill his own people for his own political agenda.

    In contrast, John McCain fought in a war at the behest of his country.
