Bill Ayers: American Dissident or Domestic Terrorist
It doesn’t surprise me that Bill Ayers, former Weatherman and domestic terrorist, is trying to polish, or should I say distort, his legacy. It will be a life-long pursuit, doomed to failure. His recent book is Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident. He got the “public enemy” right. I don’t plan to read the book. Reportedly, it is more of the same tripe served up in his previous writings about his escapades in the Weather Underground Organization (WUO). Born to a rich family, his failure to be successfully prosecuted for numerous terrorist acts was certainly aided by family wealth and political influence; as well, I must admit, missteps by the FBI and Federal prosecutors.
Some will say, this was a long time ago. For some people that may very well be true; but, for me, well, I still remember and don’t plan to forget anytime soon. To my mind, modern day terrorism has refocused the heinous acts of the WUO, as well as its many similarities with, for example, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s actions at the Boston Marathon. After all, there isn’t much difference between a pipe bomb and a pressure cooker bomb. What’s that you say? ‘Bill and his associates didn’t actually kill anyone.’ First off, that’s not true. Secondly, it wasn’t for lack of trying.
For some of my personal experiences with and impressions of the WUO, I refer you to the following previous post. http://trueattrue.blogspot.com/2013/05/dzhokhar-jahar-tsarnaev-bernardine.html
Of course, Ayers and his ilk continue to harken-back to the Vietnam War, and the alleged ‘criminal’ nature, at least in their minds, of that military operation. There was considerable justification for the military incursion in Vietnam, but I should save that for another time. Besides, our country called and many of us went. Whereas, Ayers and his other little rat buddies scurried around in the dark of night planting bombs without any thought or care about who might be killed or injured.
When the public talks about the cowardly acts of some of our modern day terrorists, don’t forget Bill and his lovely wife Bernardine Dohrn. As they might say over coffee with friends, ‘been there, done that.’
This is snarky I know; but Ayers’ photo, with the ear-rings and the haircut, it appears that he is finally getting in touch with his feminine side. Something the FBI always suspected. What a wus.
For those that were too young during the Days of Rage and its aftermath, or for those who have simply forgotten, I’ve attached a FBI document that will give you a feel for the kind of people Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn et al were (and still are). The FBI Summary Report has been highly redacted, but you will quickly get the idea.
