Video: Bill Ayers awfully confident that America’s best days are behind us
Hot Air ^ | 12:41 pm on May 2, 2012 | Morgen Richmond

Posted on 05/03/2012 4:19:13 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

While Bill Ayers roots for the demise of America some guy from his old neighborhood is presiding over it in Washington. Coincidence? You be the judge.

This is from an event last week at the University of Oregon where Ayers was speaking on “teaching and organizing for social justice”. Most of his presentation was about as dull as you’d expect, but you can find it here if you are interesting in watching any more of this.

So did Ayers leave out any tired stereotypes of the right? We get it, we’re a bunch of war hungry racists, hell bent on exploiting the world’s resources until the very last gasp of our dying empire. If only we’d accept our inevitable fate in the new world order, and fulfill the hopes of Ayers’ more optimistic friends. That we become like France.

Good lord.

It’s always interesting when leftists here in the U.S. talk about the need for “more democracy”. Because they don’t seem all that interested in democracy when the American people vote their opposition to the socialist agenda; which they consistently do when the dividing lines are made clear. Like in 2010. Don’t get me wrong. They’ve been able to steadily move their agenda forward (ahem) for decades by masking their real intentions under the guise of promoting fairness and equality. But if ever their real vision for America’s future was put to a vote, they would lose, overwhelmingly.

Though imperfect, America has consistently been a force for good in the world, not the evil empire people like Ayers believe us to be. Whether America’s influence on the world stage diminishes in this century is a choice we face, not an inevitability. Will we continue to borrow against our future prosperity at an unsustainable rate? Will we allow runaway growth in entitlement spending to choke off investments critical to our long-term security? Will we allow those sowing cultural division and class envy to succeed in setting us against each other? Ultimately the choice is simple even if the path ahead will be difficult: will we remain exceptional or will we succumb to the designs of those who are busy “re-imagining” a world where there is nothing great about America?

I have no desire to see the video because the sight and sounds of Bill Ayers infuriates me. In a sane world, he would never be in a position to influence young minds or even hold an ounce of credibility. While I'll take responsibility for ignoring what was going on in government for most of my adult life, I was too young to be responsible for Ayers. The generation before mine failed to dispose of this traitor when they should have and now we're paying for it.

This piece of human filth should be run out of the Country.

“Bill Ayers awfully confident that America’s best days are behind us”
____________________________________________

I am too tired to read the link and on my way to bed, but just as a note, I thought Ayers would think America’s best days are just beginning.
Thanks to him and his ilk, America now has education and media all run by Marxist, such as himself.
His fellow Communist and one time neighbor is serving as POTUS.
What more could he want?
Is he really lusting for another Bolshevik revolution, but in America?
Inquiring minds want to know.

The Ayers say that they didn't do it but I'd like to hear a jury say it.. not much of a chance of that.. alas they are arguably now part of "the Establishment" that includes the MSM and other bratty issue of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus spoiled brats.

Justice Department: 'Zip it' on Ayers probe

Police officers told to zip lips on bombing Phillip Matier,Andrew Ross Wednesday, March 18, 2009

"The San Francisco Police Officers Association's leadership has been told to muzzle it after signing a letter accusing onetime Weather Underground radical Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, of being behind the nearly 40-year-old bombing at a San Francisco police station that killed a sergeant.

"We hear that both U.S. Justice Department reps and Police Chief Heather Fong put in calls to the union to find out just what they were doing talking out of school about an active investigation that may be ready to make a move soon in the 1970 bombing at Park Station. The word was, button your lips.

"Police Officers Association President Gary Delagnes confirmed that his union got a call from federal investigators telling them they had an 'active investigation and should not be commenting on the case.' Delagnes said the letter was meant only to show support for the family of the slain officer, Sgt. Brian McDonnell, and to help them 'bring closure to the case.'

"No one has ever been charged in the bombing, and Ayers said last week he had nothing to do with it." [End of 18 March, 2009 article]

I can guarantee that by age 11 I had done more work than that that silver-spoon-in-the-ass-at-birth idiot. Period. And his worthless wife.

Bill Ayers forgot everybody is still pretty POd at him ~ like if I were going to enter an intersection on the yellow and he were starting to cross the street in front of my 18 wheel tractor trailer carrying 60,000 pounds of bricks ............ would I tap the brake a tad to make sure I got to occupy his space, or tap my horn for him to GIT OUT THE WAY.

So many hard questions ~ so little time ~ tap or tap, what to tap, why?

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World — where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' — both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

By Scott Swett and Roger Canfield

"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:

Larry Grathwohl:

"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:

"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive — 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Bill Ayers is one sub-human who should not still be wasting our precious oxygen.

I would just love for one of these communist loving POS to point out one communist country that did as well as the USA.

He is right about one thing, thanks to the enemy within our country, the progressives (aka Marxist communists), our best days are behind us. They have piled on so much debt they have completed the dream of Cloward & Piven (who is also wasting oxygen) in collapsing our system under the weight of so many useless unproductive people demanding more and more services.

If you want to elevate your blood pressure on this point PLEASE watch this video from an NBC affiliate of all places.
