Exclusive - The Vetting - Senator Barack Obama Attended Bill Ayers Barbecue, July 4, 2005
Breitbart ^ | 6/14/12 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 06/04/2012 9:30:20 AM PDT by Nachum

As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama disavowed any connection with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground radical who was one of Obama's early backers and his colleague on the board of the Woods Fund in Chicago. We now have proof that Obama's association with Ayers continued even after Obama had been elected to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate--in the form of a now-scrubbed blog post placing Obama at the home of Ayers and his wife, fellow radical Bernadine Dohrn, on July 4, 2005.

Dr. Tom Perrin, Assistant Professor of English at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, was a graduate student at the University of Chicago at the time, and maintained a blog called "Rambling Thomas." He lived next door to Ayers and Dohrn in Hyde Park. He wrote at 8:44 a.m. on July 6, 2005:

Guess what? I spent the 4th of July evening with star Democrat Barack Obama! Actually, that's a lie. Obama was at a barbecue at the house next door (given by a law professor who is a former member of the Weather Underground) and we saw him over the fence at our barbecue. Well, the others did. It had started raining and he had gone inside be the time I got there. Nevertheless.

Dohrn is a Clinical Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University, and Chicago did, in fact, record rainfall on the Fourth of July holiday in 2005.

Breitbart News attempted to contact Dr. Perrin for further comment:

Dear Dr. Perrin,

My name is Joel Pollak, and I am the Editor-in-Chief of Breitbart News.

We came across your blog entry from July 2005 in which you mentioned that then-Senator Obama had been a guest at the Ayers/Dohrn house next door.

How nice for a bunch of America haters like Ayers to have a barbecue on Independence Day, in the backyard of their upscale neighborhood. They do hypocrisy so well.

The biggest news here is that Obama was actually celebrating a 4th of July Holiday. I thought May 1 was his big Holiday, that and Kwanzaa.

Give the guy a break. Don’t we all all go to the homes of unrepentant terrorists for BBQs and small talk? Aren’t they all “just some guy in [our] neigborhood[s]”?

I don't know, just because they had a holiday off and BBQed doesn't mean they were celebrating. The real America haters seldom miss an opportunity to take advantage of an American tradition to use for their own ends.

Whatever was cooked up, it musta been before Ayers learned how to creatively season with arsenic.

"Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents. That's where it's really at." -- Bill Ayers

But, of course, Ayers has spent his life living off his parents, who, in turn, are committed Marxists and live off "other" (lesser) people.

*******

Why don't you people give Obama a break?

He was only visiting the guy, Ayers, who happened to live in the same neighborhood in 2005 for a few minutes so that Ayers could help him write his book, the book that Obama---with his excellent command of the English language---claims that he wrote so skillfully by himself.

So give Obama a break. He only has a few more months left as president anyway.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know who else was at that July 4, 2005 bbq? That is, I wonder if any famous Chicago politicians were at the same bbq. I hope that a reporter finds out who else was at that bbq.

1. I also hope that reporters jump all over Obama with questions about his now obvious close relationship with Ayers back in 2005.

2. I hope that during this 2012 presidential campaign, reporters don't let Obama quickly dismiss the Obama-Ayers' relationship as meaning nothing like they allowed Obama to dismiss the Ayers' relationship during the 2008 presidential campaign.

3. It looks like Obams's now famous 2008 statement about Ayers has come back to haunt Obama 4 years later: "Ayers was just another guy in the neighborhood", or something like that.

4. And with the recent revelation that Obama attended a bbq at Ayers' home in Chicago on July 4, 2005, it is now easier to believe what Obama critics have been claiming over the past 4 years: Ayers must have helped Obama with his book, because the excellent, smooth writing style of Obama's "Dreams of My Father" points more to Ayer's smooth writing style than to Obama's clumsy writing style.

5. So now that the public has learned that Obama attended a bbq at Ayers' home on July 4, 2005, I challenge reporters to do their job and confront Obama so that he will explain in more detail what his true relationship with Ayers has been over the years. For instance, they should pressure Obama until he explains if Ayers did or did not help him write one or more of his books.

Dr. Perrin did not respond. He did, however, delete his entire blog from the Internet.
BWHAHAHAHAHA

I guess Tom didn't have as much to share as he thought he did.

Excellent find by Joel Pollak of Breitbart News!!! (Pollak, incidentally, was a GOP congressional candidate in 2010.)

This is not the first physical sighting of an Obama-Ayers connection. Back in the 1980's, a since-retired Postal Service letter carrier recalled seeing then-young Obama at the swanky suburban Chicago Ayers home property with William Ayers' mother. Obama was introduced to the postman by Ayers' mother as a friend of her son who was staying over with her. (The postman specifically remembered the incident, since it was rare to see a black person in that neighborhood.)

Later came the appearance of Obama at the Ayers-Dohrn home in Chicago for Obama's first political fundraiser c. 1996.
