Kliphnote: FYI Ayers;
"In 1969 he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group that conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings during the 1960s and 1970s, in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
He is a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, formerly holding the titles of Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar"(wiki)
Many people didn't know who Ayers was until his association with Obama.
And many people refuse to acknowledge their relationship.
Just as they refuse to acknowledge Obama's relationship with Rev. Wright,
Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Van Jones, professor Derrick Bell, etc.And the MSM yawns.
What is the link between the far left in Hollywood and the Main Stream Media
and the Educators? They all get to push their agenda onto an audience.
The Fifth Column. RIP Joe McCarthy
William Ayers: 'I get up every morning thinking ... today I'm gonna end capitalism'
Published April 01, 2012
William Ayers, in a pep talk to an Occupy Wall Street gaggle, said he wakes up every morning thinking about how he's going to end capitalism -- though he acknowledged he goes to bed "every night disappointed."
The co-founder of the radical, Vietnam-era Weather Underground was videotaped chatting up what was identified as an Occupy Union Square group this past week in New York City.
In the tape, he told the crowd that he doesn't consider himself an optimist or a pessimist.
Rather, he said: "I get up every morning thinking, today I'm gonna make a difference. Today I'm gonna end capitalism. Today I'm gonna make a revolution. I go to bed every night disappointed, but I'm back again tomorrow. That's the only way you can do it."
Ayers' past ties to President Obama stirred trouble for the Democratic candidate when he was running in 2008. The two worked together on a charitable board starting in the mid-1990s, and Ayers once hosted a campaign event for Obama when he first ran for the Illinois Senate.
Obama, though, distanced himself from Ayers. And Ayers himself wrote in late 2008 that the two were not close.
