William Ayers' forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire

William Ayers' forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire

posted: October 22, 2008

William Ayers is a communist. But don't take my word for it. He said so himself:

We are a guerilla organization. We are communist women and men, underground in the United States for more than four years.

And not some nicey-nice peace-and-love kind of communist. Through his group the Weather Underground, Ayers was planning to "seize power" in a violent communist takeover of the United States:

We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, size power and build a new society.

The quotes above were scanned directly from a now long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, which was written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground. In this slim volume, which functioned as the Weather Underground's ideological manifesto, Ayers declares himself to be a communist, and announces that his group's bombing campaign was intended to start a violent revolution to overthrow the American government.

After a long search, I was lucky enough to finally get my hands on a copy of the original edition of Prairie Fire, which is now extremely rare and hard to find. It was written in secret while Ayers and his fellow Weather Underground members were still in hiding and on the run, and still actively engaging in bombings and other violent acts.

This essay features many high-resolution scans of quotes and entire pages taken directly from Prairie Fire, which journalists, bloggers and other media members are free to copy and re-post.

If you're interested only in viewing or downloading the scans taken from Prairie Fire, scroll down this page to see a large selection of shocking quotations which you can use as you see fit. My introductory explanation below simply provides context and elucidates why the text of Prairie Fire is so significant at this very moment in history.

So far in 2008, there has been almost no mention of this manifesto and its insurrectionary goals. It seems as if the media, William Ayers, Barack Obama and his supporters don't want you to know about Prairie Fire. Which is exactly why you need to see it.

How Is This Relevant to the 2008 Presidential Campaign?

There's nothing illegal about being a communist. People in this country are free to hold whatever political beliefs they so choose. I don't know William Ayers, I've never met him (that I'm aware of), and I have nothing against him personally.

This essay only exists to correct and unequivocably debunk claims routinely made by the mainstream media over the last few weeks about William Ayers, his beliefs, and the purpose behind his bombing campaign during the 1970s.

Specifically, when questions arose during the 2008 presidential race about Barack Obama's past associations with William Ayers, many media reports and articles blandly described Ayers as a "Vietnam-era radical" and the Weather Underground as a group that set bombs "to protest against the Vietnam War." Both of these characterizations are demonstrably inaccurate.

It won’t matter. Other than FR, who’s going to know or care?

Sounds like having tried violence and failed, he and his buddies are about to succeed using covert, peaceful means of political change — getting their guy elected. It is hiding in plain sight.

The most useful information is that the book was dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan among others. That’s the only thing that liberals won’t condone.

This is another clear post about Obama associations being marxist/communist, and Frank Marshall Davis mentored Obama from time he returned to Hawaii until he left for college (Davis had lived in Chicago)...another registered communist. Davis was under FBI surveillance for 19 yrs...see this link:

It amazes me that we get it, but the media (even Fox) refuses to report it, and in some cases, even believe it in the face of so much evidence..sad.

The strange thing is that Ayers and his pals aren’t even covert. Obama’s deep ties to Bill Ayers are a matter of public record. Obama’s already explained his wealth re-distribution tax plan to the public. As election day comes closer people will look beyond the airy rhetoric and see the facts for what they are, assuming the unfiltered facts break through to the mainstream.

Now he and the other communists won't have to bomb. They will have a friend in the WH who shares their hate for imperialist, capitalist America. What are the newsies smoking that they can countenance this influence on our president?

Maybe they are communists or sympathizers, too. Here, every one of the MSM, Ayers (father was CEO of ConEd), Obama--all have lived the good life fostered by this great country and want to remake it in the Soviet image--THAT IS JUST INSANE!

A lot of people still wasting time on Ayers. The media has decided this WILL NOT be an issue and it won't be.

Amazing article, amazing post, thanks!

Unfortunately, this fight will not be over even after Obama is defeated in November 2008.

This will be another very useful resource in educating the public during the post-mortem hand-wringing that the left wing will surely be doing, publicly aided by the left wing media. Arm up with good information so we can fortify all Americans against being hoodwinked again by communists/socialists/Marxists/Fascists/Leninists/Maoists/etcs.

Spread this post around, ping to pinglists. I don’t know of the prominent Obama/Ayers lists.

The unholy trio:
1 Ayers (bomb-maker)
2 Louis Farrakhan (muslim hater)
3 Obama (politician)

Some key points:
#1 Obama, being in the Senate, has access to the building layouts of Congress, the White House and Supreme Court. Would Ayers be interested in this information? Does he have it?

#2 Islam is the fastest growing religion in the U.S. prisons today. Think Farrakhan didn't have a hand in that?

#3 Obama, if he becomes President, will have the legal authority to pardon every one of Farrakhan's boys in the prisons and have a ready-made Muslim army.

#4 Israel has stated they will not share intelligence information with a President Obama.

#5 Obama's closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was born in Shiraz, Iran.

Would you put an American Jihad past him? Put two and two together--Ayers could have his revolution in one day.

Beware of the enemy within.

For those who don’t get all the news we get, it is up to us to copy and send all this information so they will be able to make an informed decision on how to vote. For sure the media isn’t going to tell them. It should be our mission to do this, imo.

The amazing thing is I can vaguely remember this vile tract, holding it in my hand way back when. I used to frequent a communist bookshop just to “keep up” as it were, and it was probably there that I saw Prarie Fire and thumbed through it. I also once actually knew a few devotees of the co-called Weather Underground. Who could have imagined that such a lunatic fringe would re-appear as the force behind a possibla president of the USA—? It would be laugh-out-loud funny if it wasn’t bone chillingly frightening.

Nobody would have believed back in the 1960s that these Commies would take over the Democrat Party. So it wasn’t taken seriously. And the kids romanticized the era because of the sex and drugs, not the politics. But few were perverts like Ayers. The vast majority were just serial one on one heterosexual encounters, unlike Ayers.

I don't even think Ayers would need to bomb--just a coup to take over EVERYTHING. Just curious--what do you think Pelosi et al's reaction would be? Do you think they are just greedy for power and money or do you think they are ideological like I believe Ayers, Farrakan and Obama to be?

Historically, all revolutions start with taking out the leadership (and I use that term loosely) first. They generally don't know what hit them. If Congress goes along, it will be under the influence of fear and intimidation. Reichstag comes to mind.

As for Nancy and her gang, IMHO they are all true believers, and they choose to believe Obama. They are enablers in this socialism sickness. They would be in for a rude surprise when Obama tells them to all kiss off.

The Dem party has thrown itself from the frying pan into the fire, only they don't get it yet.

I tend to agree. I have been comparing Obama to Hitler for some time. Only Germany was a new democratic govt., fresh from hundreds of years of monarchy. When Hitler's Nazi Party won the majority vote and he formed the govt, he TALKED Hindenberg into stepping down "temporarily" just so Hitler could get Germany out of the economic morass they were in and the rest is history. There is no telling what Obama will ask for.

They are so alike--unorthodox childhood, power hungry, Hitler hating Jews, Obama hating whites. Of course Obama is Harvard educated, but I believe Hitler may have given himself a better education with his reading, grandiose discussions, haunting the great museums, opera, etc.

Anyway, they are/were both power hungry. The difference is what they do with the power. Hitler wanted to conquer the world FOR Germany. Obama wants to open the doors to the world and become an ATM machine for 3d world, UN, and his personal cronies.

Yes, I can see him throwing Nan and Harry under the bus--how shocked they would be! Nan's eyes would open so wide they would pop out.

It has been rumored that Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano is being considered as Obama's Secretary of Homeland Defense.

Janet Napolitano - Obama's Secretary of Homeland Security?

Former U.S Rep. J.D.Hayworth (current KFYI AM 550 Talk Host) discussed Obama's plans for Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano on his show 10/22/08.

JD Hayworth

If you are unfamiliar with Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano... think Janet Reno on steroids!

An intelligent individual might consider viewing the YouTube Video regarding Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano's controversial 911 Memorial at YouTube Original Videos

Look for the "ROLE MODEL" photo of Janet and her gun!

Get ready to get angry...
