Ayers: My Bombings Were Totally Different From the Ones in Boston By Jim Geraghty May 6, 2013 9:12 AM
Oh, look whos in the news again:
Bill Ayers says people cant equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the April 15 twin bombings in Boston that killed three people.
There is no relationship at all between what Weather Underground members did and the bombings that two brothers allegedly committed on April 15 in Massachusetts, Ayers said in response to a reporters question. No one died in the Weather Underground bombings.
Wrong. Three Weathermen are killed when bomb manufacturing goes awry. The organization becomes the Weather Underground as key players including Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers and Kathy Boudin go into hiding Kathy Boudin resurfaces to participate in an armed robbery in Nanuet, New York, which results in the shooting deaths of three men.
Ayers goes on to say
How different is the shooting in Connecticut from shooting at a hunting range? Ayers said. Just because they use the same thing, theres no relationship at all.
First, its good to see that Ayers sees the futility of cracking down on lawful, responsible gun owners because of the actions of the Newtown shooter. Secondly, show me the safe, responsible use of a pipe bomb.
U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., committed daily war crimes in Vietnam and I get asked about violence when what I did was some destruction of property to issue a scream and cry against an illegal war in which 6,000 people a week are being killed, Ayers said. Six thousand a week being killed and I destroyed some property. Show me the equivalence. You should ask John McCain that question Im against violence.
Im against violence, said the bomb-builder. Finally, the reporter covering the event feels the need to point out the glaring gaps in Ayers story of himself as a misunderstood hero:
In his talk to the crowd, Ayers mentioned that in 1970, he lost three friends in the Weather Underground, including his lover, Diana Oughton. He did not explain in his talk how they died they were killed when nail bombs they were making in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew up.
Telling the crowd the circumstances of those deaths would have been inappropriate, Ayers said afterward. Everybody here knows, he said.
Authorities said the bombs were intended to be used at a dance at the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey.
But remember, Bill Ayers is totally, totally different from the Boston bombers, honest!
Ayers recently elaborated on his relationship with Barack Obama and his political allies earlier in life:
David Axelrod said we were friendly, that was true; we served on a couple of boards together, that was true; he held a fundraiser in our living room, that was true; Michelle [Obama] and Bernardine were at the law firm together, that was true. Hyde Park in Chicago is a tiny neighborhood, so when he said I was a guy around the neighborhood, that was true.
As Ben Smith summarized, Ayers and Dohrn, who have been semi-officially rehabilitated in Chicago but still inspire a wide range of feelings, played a modest but real part in launching Obamas political career.
Sure, after he’s executed which should have happened to him 40 years ago.
Ayers: “My incompetence is a mitigating circumstance”
FBI Informant Reveals Weather Underground Advocated “Killing 25 Million Americans.”
Yup. No pressure cookers were harmed in the actions of this POS ayers. Oh, and his actions were more noble. Right? Why isn’t he pushing up some stink weed with jimmy hoffa someplace?
Obama’s pal, like Obama, is utterly full of sh*t.
He bombed because he figured he, and he alone, knew what was best for America and the world; that is precisely what the Moslem terrorists think, never doubt it for a moment.
Just another garden variety self-exculpating terrorist with a glib tongue.
Why isn’t Ayers in a federal prison ?
“Bill Ayers says people cant equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the April 15 twin bombings in Boston that killed three people.”
Tell that to the victims’ families
What a moron he is!
Surely Satan was looking out for Ayers’ more valuable future as an educator when that bomb blew up in the brownstone, instead of Fort Dix.
He would have had a hard time getting clear of that nail bomb in that case.
I’d prefer he saw a judge and then a hangman.
Actually I think its kind of interesting to see him getting defensive.
so to use ayer’s logic....if someone were to kill him is that just a very, very late term abortion??
He's not in federal prison because the Fed dropped all charges when the FBI got busted for using illegal tactics to investigate Weather Underground. COINTEL was the name of the illegal program.
You are still a terrorist you SOB..Below a must read on Bill Ayers,Obama..
He needs to see a doctor.........
Yeah, Paging Dr. Kevorkian.
Some sort of “technicality”. That, and family money...
No comment-might curse.
A bomb is a bomb! Meant for one thing to inflict terror, injury, and mayhem!
So Bill you were a peaceful bomber?
You should still be in prison!!!!!!!!!!!
You surround yourself with folks that you are comfortable being around, like minded individuals, if you will. People normally befriend folks that share similar values and priorities.
Personally, I don't hang out with members gang bangers. I don't hang out with pedophiles. I don't hang out with drug users or alcoholics. Why? I am not comfortable being casual with folks I am suspicious about.
It's all been said before. But Obama is in his comfort zone when he is surrounded with the likes of Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Rezco, Blaggo, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc. His entire cabinet is littered with like minded individuals.
Ironically, Obama is not comfortable around most people as is evident by his relatively isolationist presidency. Obama does not like to meet with people to talk about policy. He doesn't like to preside. I believe it is because he is uncomfortable having to “hold back”. He is a phony in that even his best efforts at appearing less radical than he really is, still exposes his radical nature.
I've come to realize he really does despise America. I still can't figure out what Obama’s real hope for America is. Does he really pine for a totalitarian and tyrannical governance? Does he think a Roman style of benevolent dictatorship is best for America? Stalin's Russia? Hitler's Germany? He certainly does not believe in freedom or governance by the people.
Maybe Ayers is refering to the fact that the Tsarnaev brothers are foreign born terrorists, who are brainwashed by Islam into hating others in the name of their cult religion.
While he, Bernardine Dhorn, Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert are American born traitors who killed their countrymen out of their arrogant, elitist, ultr-leftist political views.
That makes Ayers worse than the Tsarnaev brothers, not better.
But in his elitist mind, he forgives himself, as all leftists do.
After all, he is so much smarter and well meaning than the riff-raff that disagree with him.
At the range when firing a weapon nothing is destroyed but the target that was put in place and paid for by the shooter. No person is at risk.
Hey Bill did you pay for all the stuff you blew up? Was there a potential for injury at anytime? A Federal building or Police Station is not a range you stupid ****.
And this fool is an educator??
It’s always good to have a terriorst on staff>
More to the point, the bombs that went off prematurely killing the Weathermen were nail bombs intended to be used at a dance for noncommissioned officers at Fort Dix - not just empty buildings or something.
Well glad he explained it - stupid me I thought if you put nails in pipe bombs that was with intent to murder and maim. Guess not.
Sarah Palin nailed it, Obama’s been “palling around with terrorists” due to his long association with Ayers and Dohrn.
Yah! Just can’t grow stinkweed in cement
Boston Bombing Ping!
Weather Underground targeted military facilities, and law enforcement. Their actions were treason, pure and simple. His wife met with North Vietnamese...traitors all- right along with Jane Fonda. No excuses, it is what it is, the fact that they were only “proven” to have killed their own members is beside the point, they tried to kill with their bombs and likely did. Maybe some of those old investigations need to be reopened and evidence looked at with new technology.
“This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but with a whimper.”
Ayers is as irrational as Chris Matthews.
The end justifies the means, in service of the glorious revolution, which simply means, anything goes.
Progressives aren’t bound by outdated moral theories, except when they get short-changed at the supermarket checkout. Then watch them scream.
SOB Needs Killing, IMO. Dorn, too. And the recently-released killer terrorist bitch, too.
Because he was protected from the top. His family was very well connected. Ayers was so well connected that he helped launch the political career of the President of the United States.
Why is this little commie bastard still breathing?
The gov’t screwed-up the case against him and his bitch.
The Muslim bombers weren’t so inept at making bombs.
“In his talk to the crowd, Ayers mentioned that in 1970, he lost three friends in the Weather Underground, including his lover, Diana Oughton. He did not explain in his talk how they died they were killed when nail bombs they were making in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew up. “
We all know that “nail bombs” are only used to destroy “property”
You mean under the prison. Like most lefties that get away with this kind of crap, they become some sort of folk hero. (Think che, mumia abu jamal, six pack shakurs godmother down in cuba.) To brainless idiots.
Perhaps it's due to where we are on the Timeline, but it seems that evil has taken a special interest in the children of the generation that beat it back in Europe, who freed God's chosen and restored Israel, thus turning the page to start the last chapter of the story we were born into.
It's weed pulling season here and I see Ayers as one of those weeds that dumps an extraordinary number of seeds into the garden. If you don't pull it out before it dumps its cargo, those seeds will sprout and grow fast, quickly taking territory. Maybe even take over.
Ayers grew from the same variety of seeds Satan planted in Europe throughout the 1800s, as well as here in America, which grew to produce the fruit of two world wars in 50 years.
Perhaps it just has taken longer for Satan to prepare the gardens here such that the evil Ayers is here to do could sprout and grow. Perhaps Satan has focused a special vengeance upon the children and their children of that greatest generation God gave temporary safe dominion as a consequence of cleaning up Satan's mess.
The soil is always right, but Satan must first disable His gardeners along with their will to tend his gardens and watch over His flocks, so to speak.
Now is the time that Gardeners-R-Us needs our help, before the weeds take over.
In the country we used to be, a weed like Ayers would have been pulled quickly and tossed into the compost pile, long before it could dump seeds.
Instead, we curiously watch silently, unable to speak or unable to hear or unable to see, while we let weeds take over the garden.
It all has a preternatural or supernatural feel, but I sense that the spell is soon to be broken. The Prayer Warriors have broken through the front lines. Let the battle begin!
I was thinking the same thing.
From his statements it’s almost sounds to me at least as if he’s attempting to distance the Weather Underground from the Boston bombing.
He needs to see an executioner. The appointment is long past due.
His bombing were the good kind....
Yeah, that’s the ticket!
It seems to me that he once said that he wished that he had killed more cops...
****No one died in the Weather Underground bombings. ****
Except those who accidentally blew themselves up wit a bomb packed with nails that they had planned to plant at an Army dance.
He should have been tried for treason as the WU dclared war against the US.
That is messed up.
Bill Ayers = Teacher
What is amazing is a crowd went to see this fool? For what reason? Was there an admission price?
Lets despise the the Brother Boston Bombers but lets go see the Native Terrorist! He’s a Kinder Gentler Terrorist.
