Liberal Terrorists Never have to say ‘Sorry’

Posted on February 27, 2008. Filed under: Liberal Idiots, Politicians, Politics |

These people honestly disgust me and it disgusts me even more that Ayers is a professor on an American college campus. Why would we let a known domestic terrorist teach our kids? Especially since he does NOT regret what he did. Why is it that the so-called ‘peace loving’ liberals are the ones who do the most violent things? This really makes me sick! And the double standard is ridiculous. Libs can get by with anything, but if it were a conservative who did even HALF what these people did, we’d never hear the end of it.

But the difference is that conservatives wouldn’t put up with this type of thing. If a conservative turns out to be a scumbag, we get rid of ’em ourselves. Bottom line, we take out our own garbage instead of defending it.

TERRORISTS WHO NEVER HAVE TO SAY ‘SORRY’

February 27, 2008 — ‘EVERYTHING was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon.”
That excerpt from William Ayers’ memoir
appeared in The New York Times on 9/11 – the day al Qaeda terrorists crashed hijacked planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Ayers, once a leader in the Weather Underground – the group that declared “war” on the US government in 1970 – told the Times, “I don’t regret setting bombs,” and, “I feel we didn’t do enough.” He recently reappeared in the news because Politico.com reported Friday that Barack Obama has loose ties to him.

Now a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Ayers is apparently a left-wing institution in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. Obama visited his home as a rite of passage when launching his political career in the mid-’90s.

The two also served on the board of the charitable Woods Fund of Chicago, which gave money to Northwestern University Law School’s Children and Family Justice Center, where Ayers’ wife (and ex-Weather Underground compatriot who glorified violence) Bernardine Dohrn is the director.

The Clintonites probably couldn’t be more aggressive without calling attention to how Bill Clinton pardoned Puerto Rican separatist terrorists – seen as a bid to gain support for Hillary’s Senate bid from left-wing Puerto Ricans in New York.

What fascinates me is how light the baggage is when one travels from violent radicalism to liberalism. Chicago activist Sam Ackerman told Politico’s reporter that Ayers “is one of my heroes in life.” Cass Sunstein, a first-rank liberal intellectual, said of Ayers and Dohrn, “I feel very uncomfortable with their past, but neither of them is thought of as horrible types now – so far as most of us know, they are legitimate members of the community.”

Why, exactly, can Ayers and Dohrn be seen as “legitimate members of the community”? How is it that they get prestigious university jobs when even the whisper of neocon tendencies is toxic in academia?

Ayers, who was never prosecuted for the Weather Underground’s bombing campaign, is unrepentant about his years spent waging war against the United States. “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,” he was widely quoted as saying at the time.

Ayers is merely symptomatic. Academia, the arts, even business have readmitted one former (and a few not-so-former) violent radical after another. Thomas Jones, a leader in the armed takeover of Cornell University’s student union in 1969, rose to the top of Citigroup and once ran TIAA-CREF, the pension fund of some of the very academics he threatened.

Sen. Clinton had her own brush with violent radical leftists during her years at Yale Law. The New Haven trial of Black Panthers – racist paramilitary criminals who’d murdered police and civilians in cold blood – was a cause celebre for the Yale Review of Law and Social Action, the journal she helped edit. By some accounts, she volunteered to monitor the trial to aid Panther leader Bobby Seale’s defense, and one of his lawyers, a major radical, was impressed enough to offer her an internship.

I don’t think such associations should necessarily cost people their careers or place in polite society, particularly if some sort of contrition is involved. But shouldn’t this baggage cost something?

Why is it only conservative “cranks” who think it’s relevant that Obama’s campaign headquarters in Houston had a Che Guevara-emblazoned Cuban flag hanging on the wall?

Indeed, why is love of Che still radically chic at all? A murderer who believed that “the US is the great enemy of mankind” shouldn’t be anyone’s hero, never mind a logo for a line of baby clothes. Why are Fidel Castro’s apologists progressive and enlightened, but apologists for Augusto Pinochet frightening and authoritarian? Why was Sen. Trent Lott’s kindness to former segregationist Sen. Strom Thurmond a scandal but Obama’s acquaintance with an unrepentant terrorist a triviality?
