KMJ580 ^ | 4-20-2010 | Blake Taylor

A 60's radical who's name became major part of the 2008 presidential campaign is on his way to Fresno.

In light of the uproar over his speaking engagement at UW this announcement is made a few days before the engagement, presumably to minimize potential outrage. How much money is being paid to him? Who is paying his fee?

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?

I hope a group can get outside the venue ayers intends to speak at, with their signs that relay to people the horrific history of this man. That speak to his actions against our nation during Vietnam War era and the fact that he wears a communist shirt and the fact that he laughed at getting off free, on a bombing charge, because of a technicality.

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.

Bad.

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.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

uh huh.

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.”

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.

Actually saw Angela Davis speak at the Student Union at Fresno State in the mid-70's. She was higher than a kite, my friend told me he thought she was high on heroin, I was so shocked.

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.

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?
