Unrepentant Ayers: 'Hey, We Only Blew Up Small Bombs, So Everything's Cool, Right?'

Unrepentant terrorist and full time scumbag William Ayers returns to grace the pages of the New York Times, home of his notorious September 11, 2001 column.

This guy just doesn't get it, never will, and lies through his teeth.
Unable to challenge the content of Barack Obama’s campaign, his opponents invented a narrative about a young politician who emerged from nowhere, a man of charm, intelligence and skill, but with an exotic background and a strange name. The refrain was a question: “What do we really know about this man?”

Secondary characters in the narrative included an African-American preacher with a fiery style, a Palestinian scholar and an “unrepentant domestic terrorist.”
Conveniently omitted from this narrative is "convicted shady financier" Tony Rezko.
I never killed or injured anyone. I did join the civil rights movement in the mid-1960s, and later resisted the draft and was arrested in nonviolent demonstrations. I became a full-time antiwar organizer for Students for a Democratic Society. In 1970, I co-founded the Weather Underground, an organization that was created after an accidental explosion that claimed the lives of three of our comrades in Greenwich Village. The Weather Underground went on to take responsibility for placing several small bombs in empty offices — the ones at the Pentagon and the United States Capitol were the most notorious — as an illegal and unpopular war consumed the nation.
An accidental explosion? What, was it like a gas main happened to go off and these nonviolent comrades just happened to be in the neighborhood? No, the dumb shits detonated prematurely.
We did carry out symbolic acts of extreme vandalism directed at monuments to war and racism, and the attacks on property, never on people, were meant to respect human life and convey outrage and determination to end the Vietnam war.
Bombimgs are now translated as symbolic acts of extreme vandalism.

Ayers goes on to babble about diversity and hardly knowing Barack Obama, as if there's anyone alive who believes that nonsense. But this line about the Weather Underground being some harmless group of protesters just cannot stand. How does Ayers explain his comrades murdering two Nyack, NY police officers years after the illegal and unjust war ended?
Boudin is the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of the militant Weathermen. They're the 1960s group of rich-kid radicals who bombed government buildings and corporate headquarters, aided convicted felons in jail breaks, and participated in a 1981 Brinks' armored car holdup in Nyack, N.Y., that took the lives of three innocent Americans in the name of "peace." Boudin's mother and father were convicted for their participation in the Nyack murders and armed robbery, and remain remorselessly in prison today.

Two of the holdup victims gunned down in the botched Brinks' robbery were police officers. One was a private security guard. All three were veterans from working-class backgrounds. Neither the Times nor any other media outlet that has breathlessly reported on Boudin's Rhodes scholarship win has even seen fit to print the names of the Nyack victims: Waverly Brown, Edward O'Grady, and Peter Paige.
That name Chesa Boudin should sound familiar.
Chesa Boudin's indifference to the victims of his parents' ideological jihad was reinforced by his adoptive parents--unrepentant Weathermen colleagues Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Ayers celebrated bombing the Pentagon in his recent radical memoir, "Fugitive Days," and now teaches at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Dohrn declared war on "Amerikka," helped stage the "Days of Rage" in Chicago, when Weathermen blew up a memorial statue to police officers and rioted violently, leaving 75 policemen wounded and one permanently injured in a wheelchair, and then spent years as a fugitive from justice before settling into a comfy post as director of the Legal Clinic's Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University.

From both his biological and adoptive parents, Chesa Boudin has learned to stew in the indignant self-pity of Marxist leftovers. "When I was younger, I was angry," the 22-year-old told his sympathetic Times interviewer. "Now I'm not angry. I'm sad that my parents have to suffer what they have to suffer on a daily basis, that millions of other people have to suffer as well."
Neither Boudin or Ayers are angry any longer. They're just peaceful activists with a lot of blood on their hands and welcoming arms at the New York Times.
