Bill Ayers: I was Sarah Palinís road kill
Salon ^ | October 6, 2013 | Bill Ayers

Posted on 10/06/2013 10:40:43 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Excerpted from "Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident"

“This is not a man who sees America as you see it and how I see America,” vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin cried out to the agitated crowd during a 2008 campaign rally, referring to then-Senator Barack Obama. “We see America as the greatest force for good in this world” and as a “beacon of light and hope for others who seek freedom and democracy.” This was how “real Americans” saw things, according to Palin. As for Obama, he’s “someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country!”

There it was: the punch line that would resonate no matter what else was said or done— palling around. It had a special creepy ring to it, for sure.

When Governor Palin—or, as our late friend Studs Terkel called her, “Joe McCarthy in drag”—uttered it that first time (and ever after) the crowd exploded: “Kill him! Kill him!” I couldn’t tell for sure whether it was me or Senator Obama who was the target of those chants— perhaps both. I’d been designated a public enemy before. I knew the territory pretty well and accepted the consequences with some equanimity, but now poor Barack Obama as well was forced to play Ibsen’s brilliant character, the embattled Dr. Thomas Stockmann, the “enemy of the people.” Stockmann was viciously taunted in the public square by a chorus of townspeople bent on delusion and self-deception: Kill the enemy of the people!

There was no way to prepare for what was about to hit me, of course....

Ayers is pretending to be Jesus to garner sympathy. Not. Going. To. Work.

The SOB from the Post Office FBI posters is upset that people point out what he is?

Too bad he isn’t making the complaint from Death Row where he belongs.

Why is this creature not at room temperature. He who bombed America for his Marxist overlords should have been removed with extreme prejudice.

Ping to Sarah's Awesome List!

I was Sarah Palin's Road Kill

Don't Tease me Ayers.

All I have to say is Lil' Billy Ayers needs to do a dance at the end of a short rope.

Can anybody point to how Ayers has suffered in any way from what Sarah Palin said about him? If so, why didn’t he just sue her for Slander/Libel? I submit that he has gained quite a bit since then, and would have no standing.

I smell BS

I have never heard any one at any GOP or TEA party rally shout to kill anyone

Except for Democrap plants who were later exposed as agitators

A blatant lie.

I see it as a good thing that Palin scares terrorist in the same way Reagan did.

There must be a youtube of the crowd chanting “kill him!” If there is , why aren’t we seeing it 24/7 on MSNBC ? Is he delusional or just a garden variety liar?

Not yet he isn’t. But give her an SUV and set him up in the road.

Ayers objects to threats of violence?

He co-authored the book, Prairie Fire, in which his group averred that rebuilding America would require killing THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE.

Or more.

His writing is absolutely overflowing with seething hate and vitriol —it is the most hateful stuff I have read, and that does include Mein Kampf, Das Kapital, etc.

He should have been shot by firing squad for treason long ago. I hope it still happens. So shut up, Bill, and stop digging your hole deeper.

In or out of drag McCarthy is the godfather of, the ever revered and deified by Dems, Bobby Kennedy’s oldest child.

Poor baby....wanted to murder a bunch of Sergeants at a Dance, but his buddies were too stupid to make a stable bomb. Now he’s whining like the little bitch he is.

from the article: “Before he left, my son Zayd showed us how to set up Google alerts for things we ought to be aware of instantly. He had alerts set for some of his friends and his whole family, and he set up a file full of every utterance on the web concerning Bernardine or me.”

i have to say i misjudged mr ayres: here i thought he was a single minded america-hating leftist fanatic; but, in fact, he is the typical self-absorbed, self-regarding baby boomer a-hole who just happened to have a background in leftist urban terrorism...

one other thing, the leftists are still traumatized by Sarah Palin !

Ted Cruz seems to have some of the same effect, but Sarah was the original !
