Bill Ayers: Bringing Down America, Destroying Education ( Common Core )
Townhall ^ | May 15, 2013 | Mary Grabar

Posted on 08/10/2013 11:46:34 AM PDT by george76

Larry Grathwohl, who had just come back to Cincinnati from Vietnam, was infiltrating the domestic terrorist group Weatherman, the only one to have done so. Larry saved potentially hundreds of lives when he alerted the FBI to a bomb placed near a Detroit police station and a restaurant.

Bill Ayers, Education Secretary of Weatherman, told him that in the revolution, lives would have to be sacrificed.

...

My interest in Bill Ayers began a few years ago when I learned about his career as a “Distinguished Professor of Education.” In reality he was working to destroy everything that was good about our education system. Ayers, after escaping punishment in 1980, used his position at the University of Illinois at Chicago, to spread his revolutionary ideas throughout the educational system--in the classes he taught, the books and articles he wrote, the conferences he attended, the dissertation committees he sat on, and the political connections he fostered with Barack Obama and Arne Duncan on the Annenberg Challenge.

One of the things that has encouraged me as we’ve talked to these groups is the awareness of Obama and Duncan’s education plan called Common Core. This is a complete federal power grab with an agenda in line with the educational aims of Bill Ayers. The last refuge of conservatives for education, homeschooling and private schools, will effectively be eliminated under Common Core.

...

Weatherman recruited in high schools. Now they’ve essentially entered the Department of Education.

It’s no longer abstract when you can’t hide or remove your children.

Larry Grathwohl, the FBI informer who spent a year with the Weathermen terrorist group, has remained a powerful witness to the subversive intentions of the communist radicals who sought to destroy America from within — and who continue to work toward this result today.

In 1976, Grathwohl (with Frank Reagan) wrote the book Bringing Down America, detailing his experiences with the Weathermen including his personal interactions with Bill Ayers and the rest of the leadership group, many of whom were still living in hiding at that time. In 1976, Grathwohl’s inside information was part of the effort to demythologize New Left radicalism and to frame it as what it really was: grotesque thuggery in the name of feeling like “players” in the international communist movement.

He should have been executed back in the 60s; his murderous bitch, too.

Bill Ayers is one strange guy.

Ayers was one of the founders of the radical 1960’s group the Weather Underground. His group was responsible for bombing the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and a New York police station as a way of protesting American involvement in the Vietnam War.

He is also credited with launching the political career of 0. They lived in the same neighborhood, their wives worked together, and Ayers hosted a fundraiser in his living room back in 1995.

Ayers has long been unrepentant about his anti government activities during the 1960’s, despite the fact that three of his colleagues actually died during a botched bomb making mission in the late 1960’s.

They were just communist agitators. Same goals as the communists. Scum rises to the top.

They or their cohorts did all these really terrible things. No difference between them and the Boston bombers.

I was looking at a photo of Diana Oughton, the one killed making a bomb, pretty girl. There is a link to find a grave. The tributes are not nice, and I'm surprised they haven't been taken down. A lot more hidden I didn't read.

If it hadn't been Vietnam, it would have been something else. Thanks for the post; I knew all that but maybe others didn't and need to see it.

A decent AR15 can be had for anywhere from $600 to $1200, the upper range being a Colt govt model.

1000 rounds of 5.56 can be bought for around $500 these days, if you shop smartly.

Don’t get on the truck, don’t get on the train. Stand your ground when the time comes.

Why would a school want to measure “non-cognitive skills” and what does this mean?

Since Bill Ayers is nothing more than a bloody,
murdering Communist, in American clothing,
why hasn’t some self-agrandized madman
shot him yet?

Worth repeating.
