Posted on 06/30/2014 3:04:13 PM PDT by topher
He's been called an education visionary, a confidante of the future president and a terrorist, but he's never had to answer questions like these.
William Ayers, who went from leading the Weather Underground in the 1960s and early 1970s to becoming a celebrated academic at University of Illinois, sat down for a no-holds barred interview with Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly, which will air Monday night.

We will find out tonight if she can ask the tough questions and not let William Ayers off the hook.
Try TERRORIST past.
Fox News. What a bunch of pansies.
She can do it - the question I have is if they’ll let her.
I saw a few previews and it looks like Ayers was nervous.
Will she ask about his parents paying to educate the Foreign Exchange Kenyan?
Will she ask about his parents paying to educate the Foreign Exchange Kenyan?
and will she ask him if he wrote BO’s books like everyone thinks?
He ought to be. Probably afraid he’ll trip up over some minute detail, and perjure himself; or spill too many of the beans on Obamastan.
How many people know that Ayers was Obama’s across the street neighbor in Chicago, and that he helped Obama with financing for his first home? Strange coincidence?
note: This was info that was on the internet when I first heard of Obama. I can not vouch for the validity.
They also worked together at Annenberg and held a fundraiser or two in Ayers living room, to fund Obama Inc.
Studies show and experts say 72% of what is read on the Internet is true.
DOHRN SURRENDERS, FACES COURT
Boston Globe - Wednesday, December 3, 1980
Author: Associated Press
Bernardine Dohrn , the one-time student radical leader who had eluded authorities for 11 years, surrendered today and pleaded innocent to charges stemming from a series of violent demonstrations in Chicago.
Dohrn , once on the FBIs most wanted list, refused to talk to reporters but smiled and seemed calm as she appeared before Circuit Judge Richard J. Fitzgerald. After arraignment, she was taken away for booking, and a bond hearing was set for later today.
Dohrn and Ayers, who according to the New York Times had most recently been living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, had contacted the Cook County states attorneys office through attorney Michael Kennedy, apparently to arrange some sort of plea bargaining.
The new states attorney, Richard M. Daley , said yesterday that his office had been in touch with Dohrn s lawyer, but that there would be no plea bargaining until she surrendered.
2 Weathermen May Surface
Washington Post, The (DC) - Monday, November 24, 1980
Author: Chicago Sun-Times
Bernardine Dohrn and William Ayers, who disappeared into the radical-left underground a decade ago, may soon come out of hiding as a result of plea bargaining being conducted here.
A New York lawyer, Michael Kennedy, has contacted the office of outgoing States Attorney Bernard Carey to seek a deal on any outstanding charges against the two leaders of the Weather Underground movement.
Kennedy, reached Saturday at his home in Bridgehampton, N.Y., would not comment on his plans to surrender Dohrn and Ayers.
Kennedy reportedly offered to surrender Dohrn and Ayers in return for assurances that probation would be sought for them after they entered guilty pleas to any outstanding charges. Kennedy was told that since Carey is leaving office Dec. 1, any decision on plea bargaining would have to come from the newly elected states attorney, Richard M. Daley .
She’s not only beautiful but she is one wise lawyer. Looking forward to the program.
Ayers is a lying weasel and reminds me so much of Obama with carefully parsed falsehoods. Bill Clinton was a liar extrodinaire and at least was convincing some of the time. With Ayers and Obama there is no credibility just those weasel smiles.
Bill Ayers, big, brave revolutionary, got tired of playing Top Ten Most Wanted and went running home to Daddy’s Chicago fiefdom. There he and his outlaw wife got tenured sinecure in the local universities. Like weevils, Mr. and Mrs. Ayers bored into the vital organs of academia like the Annenberg group. Ayers is a Marxist, as Red as they come, and, like his mentor Karl, he lives in Dad’s figurative basement. Karl Marx was ensconced in relative material comfort under the largesse of Friedrich Engels’ father (aka Freddy & Karl’s Big Adventure). Italians would call him a mamaluke.
Bill Ayers needs to wake up to a menacing tic-toc-tic-toc everyday...or not wake up to it.
It’s not my habit to wish others ill, but Ayers and Axelrod are two people that I hope live long enough to experience some of the hell they’ve wrought upon others.
Bet no questions about the distribution of Annenberg funds by Ayers and Obama to Illinois schools and the advancement to socialist/commie causes.
The phrase "may you live forever" comes to mind.
So a guy that blows up buildings and kill people is considered a “celebrated academic” in leftist circles huh?
Those people make me sick.
Ayers was grifter obamas IL education dept connection.
Rezko was the IL housing dept connection.
Jarrett ran the whole grift.
Rev Jackson was a corporate shakedown master.
Obama, Jarrett et al brought the grift to a new level, shaking down state government on the guise of helping the poor.
Getting their claws into federal government was a dream come true to these d-bags...
What I’ve seen of Megan Kelly tells me she doesn’t have any well defined ideology.
Once a broadcaster gets to a point where they can go either way on pretty much all controversial issues, I find no value in watching or listening to them.
If Obama lied so much about Ayers, then how can we believe him when he promises with all his heart that he will enforce immigration reform if only the Republican House would pass such reform laws? What a liar.
That doesn’t bother me - neither side is right all the time. It’s the journalist’s job to be fair in exposing the truth. I like to hear reasoned debate from all sides.
That being said - I’m way conservative personally - I hate the bastard incompetents and terrorist loving $hits in the WH and will believe to the death that abortion is flat out murder. And I love Sarah Palin.
I would laugh if he were Trotsky’d
This guy needs a punch in the teeth.
Ayers is true evil.
There is nothing sadder than a bald old man with earrings.
-— What Ive seen of Megan Kelly tells me she doesnt have any well defined ideology -—
-— Ayers is true evil. -—
I get the feeling that he’s never experienced any significant consequences for his actions.
Why is he doing this interview now? Is he trying to start a controversy to distract us from Zero’s issues? Something’s up.
Why is he doing it?
Whatever happened to Joachim Pieper?
He’s hawking his book. Great.
And Meghan’s questioning doesn’t seem to have a purpose.
I agree with you, neither side is right all the time.
And it’s not necessarily Megyn Kelly I don’t like. In many ways she’s very appealing. In all likelihood I’m misinterpreting her intentions as an interviewer.
What I don’t like is whatever force behind the scenes—could be simply the traditions of journalism—that produces what appears to be a false balance serving only to validate corruption.
I think I know what you mean and it’s something that bothers me a lot. My example is - if they were interviewing God, would they feel compelled to give Satan equal time?
Frequently there is far too much time allocated to the other side, no matter how despicable.
according to the wisdom of my father,.....believe nothing you read or hear and only 1/2 of what you see....good advise..Some universities have done experiments on what you see. A person will run into the class, grab the teachers purse off the desk. Then they interview the students...its an eye opener on what you actually see...
I found a number of Ayers comments were false and Kelly challenged him on many of them.
However, I found it interesting that Ayers claimed there were 20,000 bombings during the period and that Weather Underground was responsible for approx. 2,000. Kelly did not challenge him on this. I don’t remember hearing of 20,000 bombings in US during any period. Anyone have any tots on this?
I didn’t get a chance to see Kelly and Ayers.
Watching a program about Grace Lee Boggs.
Fascinating and the thought process these people go through to arrive at their mission of Dialectical Thinking, which they seem to prize over simple problem solving.
She likes Hagel’s ideas and Marx.
fk’d up thinking process.
However, 20,000 is a difficult number to believe is accurate.
Agreed. I wish Kelly had challenged him on that comment.
I have one question for this guy....
“Did you ghost write Obama’s books?
The other stuff is actually making Ayers look like a hero. We’re in Viet Nam an unpopular war. GIs and Viet Cong and Vietamese are dying by the thousands daily, and he protested. This sort of thing has made him a cult hero...
So Megyn, ask him if he wrote Obama’s books....
I have one question ......?
Bernadine was the best you could do?
