Bill Ayers calls Andrew Breitbart a “bomb-thrower”

Font Size:

Here’s Ayers, apparently speaking after Breitbart’s death. He’s talking about the boss winning that charity auction to have dinner with Bill & Bernardine Dohrn last month, bringing along Breitbart and Matt Labash and a few others:

That’s right: Bill Ayers just called somebody else a “bomb-thrower.” The only thing that would make it any less self-aware is if Dohrn jumped up and yelled, “Stick a fork in him!”

I know what you’re thinking: Bill Ayers isn’t dumb enough to say that unintentionally, is he?

To which I reply: Sure he is.

I’ll give Andrew himself the last word, courtesy of Matt Labash’s remembrance of him. Here’s Matt writing about that dinner:

As it happened, Breitbart was on his best behavior. “I’m here to learn,” Andrew said facetiously. It was part of the pleasure of keeping company with him. He wasn’t just a friend, he was a co-conspirator. Once we arrived at the apartment, much to Andrew’s and Ayers’s chagrin, they got along famously. Just two guys having dinner, finding commonality, even if Andrew regarded it his hidebound duty to passive-aggressively heckle Ayers as he served us plates of hoisin ribs and farmhouse cheeses. (“This is the bomb, Bill,” Breitbart said to the former explosives-rigger.)

This is why we’re winning.

P.S. Oh, and it’s not Luh-bosh. It’s Lay-bash. Helpful mnemonic, Bill: Think of the innocent bystanders you wanted to kill with your bombs. You wanted to them to get caught in a stray blast.

P.P.S. I forgot to link to this yesterday: Breitbart talks tunes.

P.P.P.S. More video. Ayers really is a compelling public speaker, isn’t he?
