William Ayers, the former domestic terrorist who is friends with Barack Obama, is getting some of the best free PR money can’t buy: the mainstream media is on his side.
Today’s Washington Post has a story on Bill Ayers and his wife, another radical terrorist named Bernadine Dohrn, and how he is now a “tenured university professors whose work on school reform and juvenile justice have won them bipartisan respect.”
What’s interesting is that the article cites no Republican saying anything good about Ayers, yet he’s earned “bipartisan respect.”
Obama is so threatened by his friendship with Ayers that his campaign has begun to attempt to distance him from Ayers by posting this “fact check” release on the subject. The strange thing is that it totally misses the point.
REALITY: OBAMA WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD WHEN THE WEATHERMEN WERE ACTIVE
Obama Turned Eight In September 1969, The Days Of Rage Occurred In October 1969. Barack Obama was born on September 4, 1961. He turned eight on September 4, 1969. The Days of Rage, in which William Ayers participated, occurred in October 1969. [Obama Birth Certificate, UPI, 10/21/81]
No one is saying the Barack was rolling with the Weather Underground terrorist group while they were active, just that he seems to roll with one of their leaders, and unrepentant one, now.
Would anyone think it cool if in, say, 40 years from now a US politician were to hang out with an Al Qaeda leader who never faced justice and expressed regret about not killing more people and causing more damage? While it seems as though liberals would like to take us in that direction, we hope we never get there.
Will the MSM swallow the hook on the latest Obama bait? Probably, why start taking their job seriously now?
