Occupy protesters have amped up May Day labor demonstrations across the country with a wide range of partnering organizations and individuals. Former 60s anti-war activist William “Bill” Ayers is among those protesting in Chicago on Tuesday.

He said he planned to participate in the May Day demonstration at Union Park in Chicago and the subsequent march.

“We’ll march right past the scene of the Haymarket massacre,” Ayers said of the protest in favor of an eight-hour work day in 1886 that was bombed. ”There used to be a big statute in tribute to police power but it was taken down. Now there’s a wonderful piece of public art celebrating the movement for labor rights and the anarchists’ movement.

Better check any government building nearby for bombs.Thouroghly check them.What was it he said outside that courthouse all those years ago? "Guilty as hell,free as a bird".And let's not forget the front page of the 9/11/2001 edition of the NY Times..."I don't regret having planted bombs..I feel we didn't do enough".

ABC calls him an “anti-war activist”. How about anti-liberty and anti-free market terrorist.

I think the media’s portrayal of Ayers backfires cause a lot of folks can look him up to know the truth.

No story regarding Ayers or his sow Dohrn is COMPLETE without mentioning their biggest claim to fame which is affiliation with President O. But ABC simply could not make that connection here. No no no. Just portray him as a doddering freelance flake, un-relevant to anything since 1970.

I’m old enough to remember the 60’s demonstrations. The Left has learned nothing from the intervening decades.

The major difference between the 60’s and today is that the demonstrators have friends in the White House and other parts of the Democratic Party.

I’d like to see some moderate Democrats stand up to their own party and say that what the Democrats and the Occupiers are doing is unprincipled and reprehensible.

Is "anti-war activist" the current fashionable euphemism for "domestic terrorist"? It'd be helpful to know.
