Obama’s friend and mentor Bill Ayers is in the news again. The demented old leftist* is still trying to justify his history of violence.
Bill Ayers says people can’t equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the April 15 twin bombings in Boston that killed three people.
Ayers, a keynote speaker at Saturday’s annual May 4 commemoration of the National Guard shootings at Kent State in 1970 that left four students dead, spoke briefly after giving his talk before an estimated 350 people on the university’s Commons.
There is no relationship at all between what Weather Underground members did and the bombings that two brothers allegedly committed on April 15 in Massachusetts, Ayers said in response to a reporter’s question. No one died in the Weather Underground bombings.
“How different is the shooting in Connecticut from shooting at a hunting range?” Ayers said. “Just because they use the same thing, there’s no relationship at all.”
Right. Because when you go shooting at a hunting range, you intend to kill people, just like the Weather Underground intended to kill people. And when you accidentally kill yourself instead, as those Weather Underground idiots did when the nail-bombs they were building blew up… well, that doesn’t count. Nor does the police officer they killed. That was totally different.
Also, the Vietnam War was even worse, so, y’know. Leave Bill Ayers alone already. Shut up, wingnut.
*Ayers, that is. Not Obama. This time.
