Conservative correspondent Tucker Carlson has bid on and won a dinner with controversial Vietnam-era radical Bill Ayers in a fundraiser for the Illinois Humanities Council, the group confirmed today.

As part of the auction item, Carlson, of Fox News and The Daily Caller, will have dinner with the former college professor who has written about helping with bombings at the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and other government sites.

This is simply outrageous. Tucker should take a food taster with him. After all, Dohrn is doing the cooking, and we all remember another dinner she recorded where she bragged that she stuck a knife into the body of Sharon Tate.

Wish Carlson were tougher. A dinner between Beck and Ayers would be worth the price of admission.

Dinner with ayers is a prize to be auctioned off?? To sit and hear nuggets of wisdom like “Guilty as sin; free as a bird — this is a great country”? Maybe he wants to hear more about how Ayers made girls who liked him have sex with his black friend or be called a racist. Or about his bisexuality: did he ever do the President? Or maybe to ask him how many pages of obama’s autobiography even came from Obama, 2/350?

Ever since Tucker Carlson let that sick Mike Tyson/Palin porno piece be published in his Daily Caller, and even going on Greta’s show to defend it, I’ve thoroughly had it with him. I change the channel at the very sight of him. He makes me want to puke.

To have dinner with someone is to have “communion” with them. I would not eat in the same restaurant with Ayers, much less at the same table.

Ask Ayers how old he is. According to the number he puts out, he was talking bad about his country while his mama was changing his shi—y diapers.

I don’t believe Dorhn was ever part of the Manson gang.

Just be glad it wasn’t Geraldo. He’s need to wear a hard hat to dinner to prevent further brain damage from hitting the back of his head on underside of the table.

I don't think so, just very similar plans.

I apologize for my comment in #2. Bernadette Dohrn didn’t actually stick a knofe in Sharon Tate while they sat around and had dinner with the body. She just applauded the action later on.

If I had a chance to do an interview with him I would jump at the chance too.

the question to be asked is “did Ayers write Obama’s books” ? if so Obama is a proven fraud

You are right. It is just that her comment on the murders was so outrageous that it has all melded together in my mind.

She actually said:

At a 1969 “War Council” in Flint, Michigan, Dohrn gave her most memorable and notorious speech to her followers. Holding her fingers in what became the Weatherman “fork salute,” she said of the bloody murders recently committed by the Manson Family in which the pregnant actress Sharon Tate and a Folgers Coffee heiress and several other inhabitants of a Benedict Canyon mansion were brutally stabbed to death: “Dig it! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them. They even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!”
She's the one who is a pig.

I think there are a lot of things Ayers would really like to tell the truth about (pride) and an amateur probably would have a better chance to get those secrets out of him.

Ayers is about 65. And no, he and his troll wife were never Manson followers.

There has droves of hateful, crazy lefties out there. Manson was a failed musician who wanted to kill Terry Melcher (the producer) after he turned down Manson. Ideology was an after thought. Ayers and Dorhn were life long haters of their parents and success in general.

All this says to me is that Tucker Carlson had an extra $20 to spare....

I'm sure they'll have lots to talk about but little to agree on -- which is a spice that will surely dwarf any attention paid to the food. But what is the commie fare being served up? North Korean chicken soup without the chicken, the rice, or the vegetables? Wonderful grog, no doubt. And then the fine Cuban cigars courtesy of Castro. Ah, a meal fit for a king commissar of the people. Or maybe a king in prison? There will be talk about Obama's book, talk of being unrepentant, talk of a reality show and the latest Republican primaries. Ayers will dazzle, Dorhn will doze and Tucker will be looking around to see if they haven't cooked up his dog yet.

So the best Carlson can do is a dinner with a 60’s faux radical FBI informant and his hag wife who in their old age are begging for relevancy . Sheesh . Onward into the past !

“...and success in general” for others maybe, but their own success is perfectly acceptable.

I’ve always been under the impression that Carlson’s true ideology is much closer to that of Bill Ayers than to anything remotely conservative.

(This is not an exaggeration of my view.)

No, never happened the way you described it.

actually, i think this is good. In 1999, Tucker did an interview with George W where bush made a lot of “candid” comments. Tucker used his “just us fratboys” act to get bush to drop the mask and let his real thinking show (i have to say i wasn’t bothered by it, but a lot of people were)

In the end, Ayers is a silver spoon socialist, he has that same background, and I think that Tucker might be the one to get him to drop the mask and make some candid comments of his own.

In 2008, obama was given a pass on all his radical associations, i think this might be an opportunity to give them a wider airing.
