Posted on 04/20/2010 9:30:11 AM PDT by gracie1
A 60's radical who's name became major part of the 2008 presidential campaign is on his way to Fresno.
Bill Ayers, the co-founder of the Weather Underground, is slated to make an appearance in downtown Fresno this Thursday evening. The event is free to the public.

We demand to see the contract.... (not really)
Will he tell us how frightened he is by all of the anti-government rhetoric? Or just wipe his feet on a flag to show his solidarity with the bama?
Why is this guy still consuming oxygen?
I hope they don’t give him bendy straws. It’s illegal, or unethical, or unseemly, or something.
Has the FReeper protest been announced yet?
And how this man is a friend and benefactor of uhbama, even gave off the first kick start to uhbama's political career in his own living room.
ayers is a bad man.
bill ayers is a HOME GROWN TERRORIST lucky enough to get off free and who then repaid his nation by trying to undermine it through our educational system.
He never shut up and left the spotlight.
He has continued to undermine the VERY NATION that set him free.
My husband is a Cal State Fresno grad. We’ll be interested to find out more.
What a joke!
I guess the Unabomber must have had a conflict.
Who is paying? Let’s see the contract!
I would love to take this criminal for a boat ride.
Looks like we have one of Obama’s treasonous terrorists coming to town. Anyone up to greeting him?
how much does a terrorist get in money for his speeches now , maybe some students could invite Palin and see if the school will have her seeing as they have no problem with a killer, and a terrorist
Thanks for posting this, gracie.
Somebody on the Right ought to boycott, organize protests, threaten riots, etc. You know, the reasons schools get Conservative speakers barred [not enough security, no insurance coverage, etc.], and then, if necessary, break the speech up. You know, like the lefties do. Time to take the public arena back. Or make it uninhabitable for the toads.
Anyone else find it ironic that a guy who blew up our government 40 years ago now works for the government?
“The Fresno Center for Non Violence”
Why did they invite Bill Ayers, then?
I hope he talks about the books he’s written, like Audacity of Hope. :P
Their mission ... and they invite an American
terrorist in their midst. KoolAid drinking idiots.
* the equality of all people in a world free of sexism, racism, classism, and homophobia,
* the guarantee of fundamental human rights including the right to sustainable development,
* an end to all forms of violence: rape, battering, exploitation, intervention and war,
* the transfer of world resources from military to human needs, leading to economic justice within and among nations, and
* world disarmament and peaceful resolution of international conflicts via the United Nations.
Whoa, going to the home of Free Republic.
Jim better hire extra security.
After all Ayers is a KNOWN DOMESTIC TERRORIST.
I agree. Let’s see the contract. Jerry Brown are you going to look into this.
Really poor decision by CS Fresno. Just when their rep was growing in a positive light. Ayers was invited to Saint Mary’s College, amidst a firestorm by protesters who didn’t want that creep anywhere near St. Mary’s. But the liberals in charge saw it as a good thing. I sure hope they’re wondering what happened to any and all of my alumni donation monies. I’ll never send them another penny. Fresno should really mull their decision over....and over....
How about some non-non-violence.....
“WILPF works for peace, disarmament and gender
What a crock. They have an avowed terrorist as a speaker?
More BS from the Lefties.
Started as a group to stop WWI. Yeah that Versailles Treaty worked out well didn’t it.
There is no one more violent than the so-called “non-violent peace movement.” Like Bill Ayers, they get off by blowing up things and killing/maiming people. And, of course, they have absolutely no qualms whatsoever in mass murdering innocent babies. Fifty million so far and growing.
His freedom of speech is your freedom of speech. If you don’t want to go or read about it— DON’T.
He is a DOMESTIC TERRORIST!!!!!
Why don’t they invite Major Hasan.
I’m sure that State Senator Yee will look right into it.
If Joe Klein wants a good definition of sedition, all he has to do is look at Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. If he wants a good definition of treason, all he has to do is look at Code Pink.
It’s evidence that a coup d`etat occurred.
He hasn’t changed his views- our government has Changed, to his views.
If you need further confirmation, recall the NY Times quoted Ayrs on 9/11 as saying he was not remorseful, and he didn’t do enough.
A coup, and it’s gonna be a tough road to undo the damage. But it’s doable.
My alma mater! gasp! What the heck happened to it. This isn’t the liberal coastal areas of CA..this is the (usually) more conservative central valley areas. Are there no safe areas in Ca anymore?
If a liberal group wants to have this domestic terrorist speak, let them arrange a private venue. This is a state supported, taxpayer supported campus. What were his speaking fees, who is going to pay for security and insurance? There are many private venues in Fresno where he could have spoken at. Having it at Fresno State gives it the appearance of approval. All of this going down as Jerry Brown investigates CSU Stanislaus’ speaking engagement of Sarah Palin.
Sounds like two very small groups of left-wing extremists.
It amazes me how the Left can keep up their rants for forty-five years. Communism is dead, they have one of their own in the White House, but they still persist in whining and crying that people ignore them. People ignore them for good reason.
If you want to know who botched the case, it was the same man who the media champions as “Deep Throat”. Since his own abuse of power isn’t so common knowledge when Watergate is discussed, perhaps it is because the media also is grateful that Ayers’ is “free as a bird” as a result of “Deep Throat’s” unlawful surveilance.
Communists are NOT permitted to teach in California. It is still established law. A Democrat tried to repeal the law recently but I don’t think he was successful.
Advocating sedition is also verbotten in California schools.
Ayers didn’t enage in terrorism-terrorism. < /ABCDisneyView blather >
Ayers was an active participant in Weatherman’s 1969 “Days of Rage” riots in Chicago, where nearly 300 members of the organization employed guerrilla-style tactics to viciously attack police officers and civilians alike, and to destroy massive amounts of property via vandalism and arson; their objective was to further spread their anti-war, anti-American message. Reminiscing on those riots, Ayers says pridefully: “We’d ... proven that it was possible — we didn’t all die, we were still there.”
Perfectly appropriate questions to ask.
Sometimes things are not as they appear to be.
Just as the UN is called the UN. The Fresno Center for Non Violence
may be...who knows?
Re: “Communists are NOT permitted to teach in California. It is still established law”
Really? There were avowed commies teaching in LAUSD when I was in high school in the sixties. A few parents complained but the commies stayed in place.
There was a huge line of Ag majors holding up the entire back wall with their arms crossed staring her daggers. Even though I thought for sure there was going to be a riot, I was glad to see them there. Don't know why I went to see her other than I was probably curious. Angela was extremely unimpressive.
I wasn’t absolving him of any crime, I was adopting the media’s voice (same defense they used on Roman Polanski).
I agree. There were PLENTY of crimes they could have tried Bill Ayers with over many years including TREASON, it wasn’t just a single botched investigation. Even then you can get a conviction without some of the evidence and a new prosecutor/investigation.
why? don’t you know what he tried to do?
I know what you meant. Just posting an answer to the msm.:-)
Well, I don’t think that will happen. Any speaker freely speaking under the freedom our forefathers gave us in the first amendment should not have to go to a private venue to speak anymore that Stokley Carmichael, Ronald Reagan or Barry Goldwater did when they spoke on campous. This is a “Public University”. I assume you would not protest Sarah Palin or Gordon Liddy (at least he was convicted of his charges) from similar articulation of their ideas?
