William Ayers says his organization, the Weather Underground, "never threatened to kill people" or "killed people." However he does admit his group did destroy property.

This is the radical left’s fantasy (see also Fight Club): destroy “the system” using whatever terrorism necessary, but leave “the people” intact for reprogramming.

Right, Bill. Some of us can remember when you were roaming this country and threatening us. It was and still is terrorism.

Seems to me the Weather Underground was responsible for blowing up a laboratory in the ROTC Building in Madison, WI back in 1970. Karelton Armstrong was convicted of manslaughter, but never seemed to be remorseful about the act.

Bill Ayers continues to deceive. Wasn't he happy about the attacks on 9/11?

Yeah, the nail bomb AYERS designed for the Fort Dix O-club dance was for love and peace.

Luckily, it only blew up and killed his girlfriends in that Greenwich Village townhouse.

(Brave Bomber Bill used girls for the actual target infiltrations and bomb planting.)

The press is still trying to pretend that Barry’s good friend and partner from the Woods Fund was not a Domestic Terrorist. By no stretch of the imagination can Ayer’s group be considered anything but a terrorist organization. That was the whole point of the Weather Underground. The only reason that this a-hole is not sitting in a Federal jail is that his wealthy, politically connected father purchased his freedom.

He killed a lab assistant who was working in the building at the time of the explosion.

Armstrong was with the Weather Underground at that time.

You cannot plant bombs and not be aware that people may be injured or killed. Whether or not someone is injured or killed you have proved that you are willing to do so.

The marxists are quite willing to use violence when other means aren't prevailing. Do not doubt for an instant that they are preparing to do so, possibly sooner than later.

What is the staute of limitations on terrorism. Maybe the US can still get this pond scum in prison yet. ban his books and close to University of Shitago down permanently. But than some would say this is censorship. I beg to differ, unrepetant terrorist supported by a university needs to bear the consequences of its actions.

“What is the staute of limitations on terrorism”

There’s no statute of limitations on murder. Seems to me that Bill could be convicted as an accessary in the murder of the police officer in California who was on the receiving end of one of Bill’s non-terrorist bombs. I’m sure there are countless other murders he could be connected to. Bill’s M.O. seemed to be that he would encourage the more gullible members of his terrorist group to do the dirty work for him.

Correct me if I wrong, but were they not responsible for the slaying of armor truck guards along with members of the black panther party? It is getting really pathetic how libtards try to rewrite history in their drug induced illusions.

I am reading “Animal Farm” again. It is exactly the template that Napoleon used. He would get “Squealer” to go out and propagandize about what happened during the rebellion and that Napoleon was the “Animal Hero” not the one who really was. Amazing and eerily similar patterns.

the murder of the Brinks guards in NY in addition to the murder of Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell in California.

Obviously, Ayers does not consider those who serve in uniform to be "people."

“Can I be the first to call BS... ?”

Someone beat you to it a while back, but they elaborated some:
Governments are instituted by men and derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. As natural things, they are altered or abolished when they become destructive of the ends for which they were established; the preservation of life, liberty and happiness of the people.
The people who first called it as they saw it cited “the primacy of God in human affairs while assert, citing positively that eartly systems depended on human intellect and action ... “*
For them it was a tyrant 3000 miles away telling them they had the rights of Englishmen, but no representation or say in their own government.
Today it is 3,000 tyrants less than one mile from our own legislature;today, a deadly terrorist claiming to be a harmless freedom fighter as the latest outrage from these Marxist, would-be tyrants.

What Ayers said on November 14, 1969, when he was asked what the Weathermen program was. [according to the UPI]
"Kill all the rich people," Ayers answered. "Break up their cars and apartments."

"But aren't your parents rich?" he was asked.

"Yeah," Ayers said. "Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

In early 1969? -70`s (?) his people blew up the PG&E substation on Hegenberger in Oakland. Shrapnel from the blast flew 500 feet thru the sides and roof of the quonset hut in which I was working. We were protected by 3 rows of steel-backed shelving stocked with electronics. They also tried to blow up the Shell gas line which which ran right by our building.
Lucky us. Damn him.

[a copy of your 2008 post — just part of it ...]

Allies in War
By David Horowitz
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, September 17, 2001:

ON THE MORNING OF THE ATTACKS on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, along with a million other readers of the New York Times including many who would never be able to read the paper again, I opened its pages to be confronted by a color photo showing a middle-aged couple holding hands and affecting a defiant look at the camera. The article was headlined in an irony that could not have been more poignant, “No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives.”

The couple pictured were Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, former leaders of the 1960s’ Weather Underground, America’s first terrorist cult. One of their bombing targets, as it happened, was the Pentagon.

“I don’t regret setting bombs,” Ayers was quoted in the opening line of the Times profile; “I feel we didn’t do enough.”

Billy and Barry, not such perfect strangers

Ayers and Obama had offices on the same floor in a small Chicago building for 3 years, only 4 minutes from Haymarket Square. The square was the scene of two Weathermen bombings of the Police Memorial [1969 and 1970]

How romantic, for Bill and Barry!
