“I don't regret setting bombs”The NYT article goes on to say:
“I feel we didn't do enough”
“Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon”
“Mr. Ayers… in 1970 was said to have summed up the Weatherman philosophy as: ‘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’ ”Quoting The Weekly Standard:
“[Bill Ayers] brags at the end of [his autobiography] Fugitive Days that he is ‘Guilty as hell, free as a bird—it’s a great country.’ As for those who might believe without irony that America is a great country, Ayers has one reaction: ‘It makes me want to puke.’ ”Quoting Stanley Kurtz at The Wall Street Journal:
“This man still hates America and seeks its destruction.”
“Despite having authored two autobiographies, Barack Obama has never written about his most important executive experience. From 1995 to 1999, he led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists.
The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s. Among other feats, Mr. Ayers and his cohorts bombed the Pentagon, and he has never expressed regret for his actions. Barack Obama's first run for the Illinois State Senate was launched at a 1995 gathering at Mr. Ayers's home.”
“The CAC's agenda flowed from Mr. Ayers's educational philosophy, which called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism. In the mid-1960s, Mr. Ayers taught at a radical alternative school, and served as a community organizer in Cleveland's ghetto.
In works like ‘City Kids, City Teachers’ and ‘Teaching the Personal and the Political,’ Mr. Ayers wrote that teachers should be community organizers dedicated to provoking resistance to American racism and oppression. His preferred alternative? ‘I'm a radical, Leftist, small 'c' communist,’ Mr. Ayers said in an interview in Ron Chepesiuk's, ‘Sixties Radicals,’ at about the same time Mr. Ayers was forming CAC.”
“CAC's in-house evaluators comprehensively studied the effects of its grants on the test scores of Chicago public-school students. They found no evidence of educational improvement.”
ANOTHER failed Socialist Utopian scheme?
