Canada turns him back, but our university system takes him in. Speaks volumes about what is wrong with our country at this point in history.

Ain’t this something:

A former domestic terrorist who’s not wanted in Canada, but is welcome in the U.S. White House.

Have we really sunk so low?

"To imagine in any way he was a threat to Canada is really absurd."

Maybe it's partial payback for poor decision making in the past.

Actually, many of Ayers' colleagues ended up hiding in Canada after the dirty deeds were done in the 1960s and 1970s. I'm sure the Canadians would prefer that the USA keep its garbage at home.

Ayers and his ilk long ago figured out that to really bring down the US, free market capitalist System they needed to get to the youth through the educational systems. Their call for radical revolution/kill your parents style action was seen as never working.

Looks like they are well on their way to success. Canada sees him as the infiltrator he is.

That is what I was thinking too. At some point, and as it should be, his connections to radicals/terrorist will become a major issue. It should have become an issue during the election, but Americans today are too damn lazy to do any research and rely on 10 second sound bites from the propaganda organs of the dnc..

We have great northern neighbors (not including the lefties in Quebec). The Canadians have higher standards and also they have probably the safest banks in the world now. They do not allow mortgages to be handed out to anyone.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Do you think Canada recognizes a terrorist when our own country has him teaching in university and our president-select plays patty-fingers with him?

“I don’t know why I was turned back,” Ayers said in an interview this morning from Chicago. “I got off the plane like everyone else and I was asked to come over to the other side. The border guards reviewed some stuff and said I wasn’t going to be allowed into Canada. To me it seems quite bureaucratic and not at all interesting ... If it were me I would have let me in. I couldn’t possibly be a threat to Canada.”

I’m taking Rush’s idea. We lost the election, and by a lot.

This is all so bad that all we can do is laugh, because if we started crying there would be no end to it.

Canada has some pretty tight rules about who crosses their border. I went on a charter fishing trip in BC with a friend and 1/2 dozen other guys he worked with a couple years ago. One of the guys got turned around once the ferry got there as he'd had a DUI over 10 years before.

They have instant access to any infraction you've ever made, so it's no surprise that Ayers was not allowed nor ever will be allowed north of the border.

BTW, the fellow that got turned back wasn't driving at the border, and lost his $750 he paid the charter company.

I was allowed entry in 1989, I had a DUI 3 years previous. I’m no expert in Canadian law but I do believe it is considered to be a felony, not a simple vehicular crime.

“Canada turns him back, but our university system takes him in. Speaks volumes about what is wrong with our country at this point in history.”

Exactly. At the very least it speaks volumes about what is wrong with our universities. If things continue as they are there is a good chance that higher education will go the way of the MSM and become a casualty of technology driven alternatives. If one can learn the same things online, in less time, with less expense, and do as well or better on standardized tests, the sanctity of a university education will be at question, and employers will also start to rethink who they hire.
