Just Who Is Bill Ayers?

Just Peace, Love and Rock ‘n Roll, Man

Of course, Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn are names that are familiar to me. I came of age with Four Dead In Ohio and “Would You Please Come To Chicago” playing in the background. But perhaps you might like a primer. Jonah Goldberg provides. He quotes himself in a passage about Mark Rudd, one of Bill Ayers’ Tovariches in the Weathermen. Uh… excuse me – The Weather Underground.

Many of us forget that the Weather Underground bombing campaign was not a matter of a few isolated incidents. From September 1969 to May 1970, Rudd and his co-revolutionaries on the white radical left committed about 250 attacks, or almost one terrorist bombing a day (government estimates put that number up to 600 percent higher). During the summer of 1970, there were twenty bombings a week in California.

So what does this ’60s stuff have to do with today? Only a little. Ayers only says he has no regrets , and wishes he had done more.

  1. Thank you for posting on this topic. I think all voting Americans need to be informed on this topic.

    There’s a great CNN report on the Obama Ayers connection- (as you know CNN is not known as a conservative news source) I have the vid posted in my blog here: http://www.jdstock.com
