Which best describes Barack Obama's friend, neighbor and colleague, Bill Ayers?
A. Respected educator
B. Unrepentant terrorist
C. Revolutionary Marxist
All of the above are true, but only C gives the true measure of Ayers.
The goal of Ayers' violence was not the end of the U.S. military involvement in Southeast Asia. It was, and still is, the overthrow of the United States and our system of government. To his mind, the deaths of 25,000,000 Americans would be a small price to pay to achieve this goal.
Considering Obama's dishonesty about his seemingly innocent professional relationship with Ayers, there is clearly something much deeper here. Obama's recent admission of his socialist dreams of redistribution of income and wealth, put him closer to the politics of Bill Ayers than of another 1960's liberal icon, Robert Kennedy, whose assassin is celebrated in the dedication of Ayers' book.
I believe that it will eventually be shown that the Ayers-Obama relationship has it's roots in their common radical political activities at Columbia University in the early 1980's.
