Bill Ayers, communist provided Arizona shooter's curriculum ?
WND ^ | January 10, 2011 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 01/10/2011 8:50:53 AM PST by RobinMasters

Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunman in Saturday's Arizona shooting, attended a high school that is part of a network in which teachers are trained and provided resources by a liberal group founded by Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers and funded by President Obama, WND has learned.

The group, Small Schools Workshop, has been led by a former top communist activist who is an associate of Ayers.

Obama provided the group with funds in the 1990s when he worked at an education reform group alongside Ayers.

Loughner attended Mountain View High School, which is part of Arizona's Morana Unified School District.

Since 2003, Mountain View has been part of what is known as the Smaller Learning Community, a network of schools that have been restructured to create a more personalized learning environment where students often have the same teachers and fellow students from grade to grade.

Very possible. Ayer’s curriculum is in use in “1500 public schools.”

It’s scary to think that the press is completely “owned” by the government. Once the government takes complete control of the internet we won’t be able to learn of things like this from outfits such as WND. As of now the internet is the only place we can get the truth and we have to be very careful and try to determine how much of that is factual.

At this rate, this entire episode will be lost in the media ether in less than a week.

Funny. I see this as totally different. I see it as self defense. Information like this is meant to undermine THEIR asinine attempts to blame this on conservatives NOT to an attempt to blame it on liberals.

From the UK,

on one hand I can certainly see your point, on the other hand the use of such a syllabus would be alarming without this shooting - if you see what I’m getting at. It would be akin to Gerry Adams helping to write material for our schools.

I've been to many political events such as those involving direct contact with my representatives. The local and state cops were always within ten feet of the politician and the public within that zone of meet-n-greet.

Where was the local and state police force in this mayhem gone bad? Why were they not close by? Were there local cops who were being paid for security or crowd control?

It sounds as if the plan of the Small Schools Workshop is to have the same teacher brainwash the kids all the way through school. Instead of getting the usual variety of teachers—some good, some bad—they get stuck with the same teacher all the way through.

So, if that teacher is chosen by Marxist community activists, there’s little chance that any different ideas might sneak through and help the kid think for himself.

The violent rhetoric of 2 well respected Chicago area professors who happen to live in the same neighborhood as our putative POTUS:

Bill Ayers (1968): “Kill all the rich people! Break up their cars and apartments! Bring the revolution home, kill your parents - that’s where it’s really at!”

1969 - Ayers attempted to extort money ($20,000) from the Vietnam Moratorium Committee. When a member of the Moratorium group asked Bill Ayers what he really wanted, “To kill all rich people,” Ayers responded. When another peace activist pointed out that Ayers himself came from wealth, he answered: “Bring the war home. Kill your parents.”

1969 (December 27 to 31) – Weathermen hold a “War Council” meeting in Flint, MI. Bernardine Dohrn comments about the Charles Manson-led “Sharon Tate - LaBianca Murders” “Dig It! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, and then they put a fork in pig Tate’s belly! Wild!

"I don't regret setting bombs," Bill Ayers said. "I feel we didn't do enough."

I wonder if Ayers is cheering for the shooter's contribution to anarchy and if Loughner will some day be writing the liberal curriculum for schools.

Both of you have valid points. I guess I am in such disbelief that we are trying to find out what is up with this guy and we have nothing but hypothesis answers right now. I wish this kid would talk. I know at first he did not want to say anything and it is too late now as I am sure he lawyered up. This guessing could all be mute if he has given us the reasons right away. I wish he would have. He could have settled all this easily and quickly. I think he is getting a kick out of all this. He is certainly getting his 15 minutes of fame that is for sure. He might even be a trivial pursuit question someday.

"A competing theory, B.F. Skinner’s behavioral psychology taught that human behavior can be explained in terms of stimulus, response and reinforcement, not unlike lab rats pressing bars for cheese. About this time, the burned out radicals of the 1960’s were finally getting out of school only to return to ensconce themselves in the make believe world of academia. This is where Bill Ayers resurfaces yet again. He is far from a minor figure in “education”. Among the left wing radicals who run our schools, Ayers is a demigod. As recently as 2008, Ayers was elected VP for curriculum of the American Education Research Association; the largest national organization of education professors and researchers. Thus it would appear that he has not exactly been shunned by his peers following the revelations about his violent past.

" If your kids’ minds are being poisoned with America hatred and anti Semitism, you can be confident Ayers’ tentacles have reached your school. From 1995 to 1999, Ayers led an educational foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), Ayers remained on the board until 2001. In 1995, Barack Obama, with zero executive experience, was brought on board to dole out over $100 million dollars to various left wing organizations. The stated agenda of the CAC was to “improve Chicago public schools”. Not surprisingly, with Ayers and Obama at the helm, CAC’s own in house evaluations show no evidence of educational improvement following CAC’s intervention."

Historical accuracy leads me to correct one deep flaw in this article’s historical premise.

Giuseppi Zangara’s target was not FDR, nor was he a lone nut, although he gave a credible, (for the 1930’s, anyway), performance as one upon his arrest.

After Al Capone was packed of to prison for tax evasion control of the Chicago “Outfit” passed to Frank “The Enforcer” Nitti. At the same time Anton Cermak was elected mayor of the Windy City. Although Cermak ran as a reformer, he was anything but that. He demanded kickbacks from the mob in order for them to be allowed to operate, earning him the sobriquet “Ten Percent Tony”. Sensing the Outfit was weakened since the jailing of their erstwhile boss Don Alfonso, Cermak upped his demands on new boss Frank Nitti.

Nitti wasn’t having it.

Zangara, who made his bones as a contract killer in Sicily under Don Vito Cascio-Ferro was brought from Sicily to dispose of Cermak and the irritation he’d become to the Chicago mob. This has all come out in the last decade or so due to testimony of several mob turncoats and investigators, not to mention the highly-publicized memoirs of the late Joe Bonanno. Zangara, being true to the old-school Sicilian tradition of “Omerta” played the lone nut after FDR role to the hilt up to his execution, never giving a clue that he had in fact hit his intended target.

His family back in the old country were rewarded handsomely, however for both Zangara’s crazy act and his silence about his true mission.

I heard this on John Batchelor’s show last night. It’s a rather tenuous connection between the shooter and Pres. Obama. However, if true, it shows the danger of introducing left-wing thought to mentally unstable and impressionable students.

Ayers dedicated his book to Sirhan Sirhan. If Sirhan Sirhan had showed up the next day instead and shot a cook and two waiters, he’d have been paroled twenty years ago and Robert Kennedy Jr. would have applauded Bill Ayers for his long years of “service”.

It does seem ironic that so many children entrusted to the public school system grow up to hate the system that “taught” them. This is not the first time nor do I suspect the last. Is it because most kids go to public school or is it something else. I saw him described as bright academically but not socially. Could it be with all the politically correct self esteem junk there was not time to teach him the Constitution? Teach him that there is a way if you are unhappy with the way you are being represented? It’s called the ballot box. Maybe all that concentrating on communist regimes made him think this was the only way.

You forget, the Justice of the 70’s especially after Nixonleft virtually assured Ayers and his coharts (&wife) including the VVAW conspirators NEVER were brought to justice.

And look at what the one that planned assassinating U.S. Senators is doing NOW:
2010, Coordinator of Gainesville Veterans for Peace Chapter 14.[5]
2010, Suwannee St-Johns Group Sierra Club Executive Committee.[5]
2010, Steering Committee United Voices for Peace.[5]

Loughner was influenced by the leftist agenda.

He admired Che Guevara, Karl Marx, Hugo Chavez and Obama.

He was a self-identified homosexual and attended a high school using Bill Ayres’ teaching program.

These are simple facts. No interpretation required.

Nonsense.

The right is engaged in a quiet, deliberative dissection of this event and the evidence associated with it, while the left is all but calling for Sarah Palin to be prosecuted for accessory to murder, and for the government to shut down the Tea Parties.

There is no equivalence of the reactions to this tragedy between the left and right.

While I am second to no one in my disdain for Bill Ayers, I think this is wrong and unhelpful. Ayers is no more responsible for this than Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, or the man in the moon.

Let me get this straight...........

It took police more than 20 minutes to arrive on the scene of a meet-n-greet of a US Congresswoman announced a month in advance in a shopping center plaza in a suburban sprawl environment?

She must have had some unfavorables within the local and state police administrations.

There is something awful odd about this. I'm sure the congresswoman's recent legislative proposals seeking a cut in pay didn't help her cause among the public servant circles.

Horrible security planning that bad cannot be by accident.

Baloney.

Commentators on the right are merely using Obama's incendiary comments to point out the hypocritical disconnect on the left.

And I don't see anywhere in this article where the author is "blaming" Bill Ayers for the shooter's heinous act. He's simply uncovered yet another hard-left link in this boy's past.

The left jumped straight out of the gate on this story trying to disown this nutcase, when all available evidence points to the fact that he's one of their own. Commentators on the right are busy exposing that evidence, and the near pathological hypocrisy of the left.

Our local church had an event the week of christmas in which the neighborhood families would go sing christmas carols to infirmed or homebound senior citizens.

We were required to have city police escorts on motorcycle (four officers on four motorcycles) going to various locations in our neighborhood as a condition of obtaining a permit to do so. We also had to pay the costs of the police participation. It was a lot!

How could this type of event take place in Arizona without a permit of some sort? The purpose of that permit is so the local government can review any public safety needs and plan accordingly.

Kids selling lemonade invoke a stronger police reaction than this poor congresswoaman and her staff needed.

It's a very good question, and one that the media should be asking, instead of navel gazing about Sarah Palin's possible influence on the perp.

A real news media would be asking leftnut Sheriff Dupnik about the permits and security arrangements for this event, but alas, they're only interested in demonizing the right.

The shooter is almost certainly a prozac-popping, dope-smoking product of the PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.

Probably never heard a conservative word in his entire life.

Damn good question. Congressmen in our district always got plainclothes body guards from the sheriff. maybe that is why the sheriff is so upset in this particular instance.

or maybe it is because he knew the guy had mental problems because of past complaints and he told people who were afraid of the kid that mental health was taking care of it???
