Obama — MSM Disown William Ayers Connection
As we approach the finish line to the 2008 Presidential election, John McCain and Sarah Palin are hammering Barack Obama on his association with radical William Ayers. This is another example of Obama’s questionable relationships with the likes of Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko, Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Michael Pfleger and PLO operative, Rashid Khalidi.
Bill Ayers stomping on the U.S. flag
Sean Hannity has been talking about Bill Ayers – a self avowed unrepentant terrorist for months. Ayers is one of the founding members of the Weather Underground, a radical left-wing terrorist group that formed in 1969 and was most famous for a string of bombings in the 1970s.
Barack Obama has once again lied about his association (remember his story on Rev. Wright?) and has tried to minimize his relationship with Ayers, dismissing him as “a guy who lives in my neighborhood” and “somebody who worked on education issues in Chicago that I know.”
You might question what relevance this has to the bigger issues of the day, such as the economy, the bailout and the Iraq war. Well it is another example of Barack Obama’s horrible judgement, his radical left-wing leanings and most importantly, his fitness to be President of these United States.
Obama’s long relationship with Ayers is explained in an article “Ayers-Dohrn-Obama Tie Shouldn’t Be Dismissed” by Bob Owens, in PajamasMedia:
“Obama campaign manager David Axelrod and other campaign surrogates are now furtively trying to claim today that Obama “didn’t know the history” of Ayers and Dohrn as the leaders of America’s most infamous left-wing terrorist group when Obama met at their home for a political “coming out” in 1995, but their attempt to make pretend that Barack Obama didn’t know of their terrorist past is laughable.
In reading Saturday’s New York Times article, a reader might be left with the impression that the terrorist organization headed by Ayers and Dohrn was engaged in little more than pranks, with a deprecating, “Most of the bombs the Weathermen were blamed for had been placed to do only property damage,” starting the solitary paragraph that mentions just three of the group’s specific attacks.
That the Weathermen — and specifically Obama fundraising hostess Bernardine Dohrn — were accused of killing an officer in a police station bombing in San Francisco was downplayed, as too was the extent of the carnage planned for the Fort Dix dance terror plot in 1970. That the Weathermen tried to murder a judge and his family with fire bombs was somehow not mentioned at all, nor were later Weathermen-related bombings that occurred through Barack Obama’s continuing political radicalization during the early 1980s.
Barack Obama’s first known meetings with Bill Ayers would occur three years after Obama graduated from Columbia, in Chicago in 1987. Ayers was an activist in the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools. Community organizer Barack Obama’s Developing Communities Project was a member of that Alliance.
Barack Obama was not eight, but a 24-year-old community organizer in Chicago at the time of the Weathermen’s last attacks, and 29 when many of the last remnants of the Underground in the offshoot May 19th Communist Organization were sentenced to prison in 1990.”
The Main-Stream Media is so in the tank for Obama that it is obfuscating the facts — don’t believe me, take a look at just one 24 hour news-cycle — all linked: (source: NewsBusters.com)
Despite the Media’s prediction of an Obama victory and declaring McCain’s chances as DOA — it ain’t over just yet. On October 7th, 2004 an AP Poll said: Kerry Holds Small Lead Over Bush (50% to 46%).
On November 2, 2004: Bush won 50.7% to Kerry’s 48.3%.
Just like the Amnesty fight in 2007, Americans have to wake up to the facts, get angry and involved. Barack Obama is a danger to this country with questionable judgement, friendships and policies. Don’t elect this populist, empty suit leftist. Keep America strong and free, elect John McCain.
