Bill Ayers: The Left Must Utilize Its ‘Absolute Access’ to America’s Classrooms
The Blaze ^ | December 21, 2012 at 9:50pm | Jason Howerton

Posted on 12/22/2012 9:22:18 AM PST by haffast

Bill Ayers, former domestic terrorist-turned university professor, reemerged earlier this month to explain how the Left’s access to schools and neighborhoods will help them shape the future of America. Speaking at a New York University “Change the Stakes” meeting on Dec. 4, he said the Left must utilize the existing “movements on the ground.”

In the video, obtained by EAGnews.org, Ayers also first blasts conservatives for portraying President Barack Obama as a “secret Muslim” and a “secret sociopath,” running around with “terrorists and Arabs.” He lamented the fact that many liberals felt like Obama was “winking” at them while he portrayed himself as a compromising moderate – but Obama ended up disappointing the far left, according to Ayers.

“The same people, and I’m sure some of us in this room, are saying, ‘But the second term he’ll be free,’” he said. “Forget about it. That’s not where change comes from.”

“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” Ayers added. “We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.

Bill Ayers explains the Left's power is in the schools at New York University "Change the Stakes" meeting held December 4, 2012

"Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out is a plan or a blueprint to change our form of government. You get the right kind of people at the top that have the power of a big government. Then the bottom that has the same ideology of the top must rise up and cause chaos. Civil unrest, riots, etc. Thus, allowing the top to do what they want to do. Basically seize control. Throw out the old rules. And craft a new system to their liking. The death of our representative republic that was once a beacon of freedom for the world."

The left already has control of the schools. The left wants to indoctrinate the children into the gay and lesbian lifestyles, in addition to brainwashing them against conservative values.

This is why its so important that conservatives stop skipping the elective education positions on our ballots. Here in Michigan, tea partier Rob Steel got half as many votes for UofM board of regents as Mitt Romney got for president. If he had gotten all of those Romney votes we would have a tea partier sitting in a decision making position at the Michigan heart of liberalism.

Pulling kids out of public schools is great but is not enough. We have to seize control and eliminate the spawn of Ayers from all the schools.

As it is now, we’re trying to fight WWII while leaving German and Japanese factories intact. We aren’t going to win like this.

The "absolute access" Ayers is talking about is the ability to train our children away from our value system, and towards a Bill Ayers type of value system.

They have been VERY successful in that regard.

How do they do it?

Look carefully inside the health classes where the teachers have the children go through exercises designed to "clarify" the students moral outlook.

They first disengage the student from their parents but saying simply, "Your parents are old-fashioned, they really aren't up-to-date on what's happening now."

The child gets their first idea that they don't have to listen to their parents. Or their pastors.

Since they have your child's ear, they then proceed to spend a number of years, before they enter high school, teaching your child every liberal piece of information they can all under the heading of "Health." Guaranteed to infuse the same ideology as the progressives among us.

Most kids are minimally phased by this type of education, but for some, like Adam Lanza, it is extremely detrimental.

Hence the following:

"Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside Out is a plan or a blueprint to change our form of government. You get the right kind of people at the top that have the power of a big government. Then the bottom that has the same ideology of the top must rise up and cause chaos. Civil unrest, riots, etc. Thus, allowing the top to do what they want to do. Basically seize control. Throw out the old rules. And craft a new system to their liking. The death of our representative republic that was once a beacon of freedom for the world."

“We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.”

WE also have access. It's time we started seriously speaking out against the culture of death, opprssive legislation /taxation, dependency, and the "sharing" of the misery.

Remind people what living as a free people - free from the Washington controllers - really means.
Free to earn and keep the fruits of your labor. Free to buy and freely own your land - and live off it in freedom if you wish. Free to build, plant, dig or hunt on that land. Free to think as you please. Free to speak as you please. Free to follow your own dreams as far as they will go without a law telling you it's forbidden.

Today, freedom does not exist. Imagine a world where the people are free to make all their own choices, and free to accept the consequences and rewards of them.

Real freedom to live is what it's all about. Just so "no" to the political control freaks. No more oppressive laws. No more controls. No more butting into our lives. We want to be FREE from ALL political oppression from both sides, and we want to help everyone celebrate that freedom right along with us.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Before he died Brietbart bought at auction a dinner with Ayers and Dorn, prseumably so they could grill him on being a domestic terrorist

But after arriving he said Ayers was one of the most pleasant and charming individuals he had ever met.

This did NOT extend to the communist useful idiots he had employed as servers for the evening, who could barely disguise their hatred

All of these little hitlers have been like that- that is how they get away with knowing stupidity all their lives and having no concience about killing people

I agree and home schooling is simply not going to be enough. Those who are home schooled today will be little more than minor speedbumps to the vast majority who are being taught marxism for the future.

True critical thinking, not the anti thought that the schools are calling critical thinking.

The example I use is global warming. When I'm told that the earth is hotter than normal I have a whole string of questions they can't answer. What is normal? How was it determined? What was the time scale of the readings? How and where were the readings collected? How many data points were collected?

The grassroots levbe3l is what is so important. We often feel that ‘pkay I elected my people now I just want to live my life and raise my kids/enjoy my grandkids’. whioch in a normal world a person should be able to do.

But the Leftists are like termites, they never, never stop, not ever. They keep on and keep on, worming their way onto school boards, city councils, they get into waste removal boards and church committees, they just never cease. It’s kind of awful to think you have to constantly fight them at every level but you do.

The ruling class New Normal want to teach you that: You do not have inalienable rights. You have human rights and they grant them.

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

They hijacked the Democratic Party in the 1970s.. their MSM employees are advocating full time now.

. . . some key [events] exacerbated the national debate, fraying trust, and national cohesion just a little more each time . . . The two-party system that had governed America . . . began to fall apart . . . interest in politics took the place of all other forms of news-related entertainment . . . politicians were the celebrities . . . [Politics/ideology] was becoming such a habit, the reactions so automatic, that [journalists] taking sides on every news story became inevitable. .. from for Love & Liberty by Robin Young and it's about 1857 America.

I think we've about reached one of the several crises Lincoln talked about.

The fault is ours. Abe will explain from "the other side."

If you could first know where you are and whither you are tending, you could better judge what to do and how to do it. You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

The question today is either the opponents of statism will arrest the further spread of it and place it on course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become permanent.

Have you no tendency to the latter condition?

Let anyone who doubts carefully contemplate that now almost complete legal combination — piece of machinery, so to speak — compounded of the Republican Party hands-across-the-aisle doctrine and the dreadful actions among statism's chief architects.

Awful close to the day when the military will have to choose sides. It seems to me.

“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” Ayers added.


I could just choke on my lunch!

He is Obama’s disinformation machine!

He got him into the White House through the front door so he could stop bombing his way into these places. And Obama has been quite successful for the red left. It’s just that those old commie ideas don’t work, never have.

I don’t doubt that ayers now thinks the schools are the answer, but don’t kid yourself. He worked the White House angle pretty hard and succeeded in getting his protege in there. And his guy has been sovietizing as fast as he can.

Man, I can’t stop myself from wishing for some happy ending a la saddam in that hidey hole for old bill ayers.

Homeschooling is an important Christian Living issue. There will come a day when homeschooling will be treated like owning firearms, that only someone with extreme views could do it and government should take the right away. It is already a crime to homeschool in parts of Europe.

In your dreams. You are simply projecting.

I am not Congress and I am not bound by any law that forces me to have someone on a ping list who is simply using it to further their own agenda of attacking homeschoolers.

I am not JR or a mod who is prohibiting you from posting on any thread you so choose. Nobody is stopping you from posting on these threads so your accusation and attacks against me about opposing your First Amendment rights are horse hockey.

Nor am I afraid of opinions contrary to mine. If that were the case, I never would have homeschooled to begin with. I've dealt with other homeschool hostile teachers before. You are nothing new or special, but rather a product of the public education establishment.

HOWEVER, I will not participate in your attacks on homeschooling by leaving you on a ping list for the very thing you despise.

Not to mention that you do just a fine job of finding these kinds of articles to stalk wintertime over anyway. You don't need my help.

Personally I don't blame you extremists, it makes you look foolish when you get smacked between the eyes with the truth.

Homeschoolers = extremists, eh?

And you really can't figure out what your name is no longer on the ping list?

Here's an idea. Start your own ping list. Call it *Another Reason to Public School* and ping people to all the public school friendly articles or all the homeschool unfriendly articles you can find. Nobody is stopping you.

Surprise surprise once again you have it exactly backwards. I have told you time and time again that I fully support homeschooling. So much so that I have offered a number of you lists of students that you may take under your wing and demonstrate just how great your theories work. Sadly not a single one of you has had the Cajones to rise to the challenge.

What I do is defend. I defend against your attacks. Such as the hay you personally tired to make out of the Newtown shootings. As i told you on a separate thread: If you want to point out issues with public schools great go right ahead. but to take advantage of the death of children to try and make a political point is unconscionable. It is the type of Alynsky attack that the let resorts to.

HOWEVER, I will not participate in your attacks on homeschooling by leaving you on a ping list for the very thing you despise. HOWEVER, I will not participate in your attacks on homeschooling by leaving you on a ping list for the very thing you despise.Please document that I have ever once said that I despise, hate or in any other way have anything against homschooling.

Ayres better be careful he doesn't get what he wished for when he spoke many years ago.

If you recall as a radical he said:

”Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at”. - William Ayres

As of now, he is one of those OLD rich people.

What a joke. We don't need your lists of students to *try* homeschooling out on. We've seen the results of homeschooling in the success of our own children.

My family has done the standardized testing and I see them get in the 99% consistently.

I've watched my own kids get 1510 on the SAT or 33 - 34 on the ACT. And the one that took a GRE got a 1440 for grad school.

Testing theories??? Ridiculous. One on one education is ALWAYS superior to a classroom setting.

There's no theory to test and we already know the success of homeschooling. We don't need to *prove* it to anyone.

And opportunist you are, you took advantage of it yourself to attack homeschoolers and point out that kids are *safer* in public schools.

You are in no position to point fingers.

.Please document that I have ever once said that I despise, hate or in any other way have anything against homschooling. Or be pr oven a liar.

Your posting history is available to all.

And speaking of lying, your accusations against me upthread are more than enough to ensure that you will not be put back on the ARTH list.

I am confident that you will continue to find these threads without my help. Have fun because you will not be manipulating me into putting you back on the list.

Let me correct this lie. I took the opportunity to:

1) Point out your omission that the killer was homeschooled

2) Point out that you were engaging in tactics that should be beyond the pale of a Christian.

Let me also point out your won hypocrisy now. You are on at least one Catholic ping list and you despise the Catholic Church.

Why would you ever want to be on one of those?

1) Point out your omission that the killer was homeschooled

So? The killer was also public schooled.

I know a kid who was homeschooled because the public school kicked him out.

So what if the killer was homeschooled for a while? Your dishonest portrayal that his homeschooling was somehow tied to the massacre is an attack on homeschooling.

2) Point out that you were engaging in tactics that should be beyond the pale of a Christian.

LOL! Chapter and verse?

Let me also point out your won hypocrisy now. You are on at least one Catholic ping list and you despise the Catholic Church. Why would you ever want to be on one of those?

I am not on any Catholic ping list. Try again.

You lied (projected) about my motivation for removing you from the ping list. It had nothing to do with the First Amendment nor fear of anyone. It was the simple fact that I am not enabling you to continue your attacks on homeschoolers.

What is extreme about homeschooling children? Its been done this way for thousands of years.

Details, details......

Public education as it exists in this country today is a relatively recent phenomena and has yet to produce any fruit that can justify its continued existence.

At what point in history did children ever have their socialization limited to only other children their same age?

Now.....

You’re right. It’s a completely abnormal social situation.
