MIA Since Before Election … Bill Ayers is Now a Media Darling … Good Morning America from an Unrepentant Terrorist


How would the news media treat Bill Ayers if he blew up abortion clinics or blew up government buildings for a cause against say Barack Obama’s policies? However, when its America hating … it gets its 15+ more minutes of fame on GMA.

They are all coming out of the woodwork now that the Presidential election is over and they can do no damage to Barack Obama. First Reverend Wright and now an all to conveniently timed interview with Bill Ayers.  Bill Ayers has been ducking interviews and MIA prior to the election now Bill Ayers says Good Morning to America … I am not really a terrorist, I did not kill anyone, I just blew things up.

Michelle Malkin reminds us that Ayers comments regarding killing people is just more spin.

Ayers adamantly denied that the Weather Underground engaged in terrorism because it didn’t “target people to kill and injure them.” Oh, yeah? Tell it to the families of Waverly Brown, Edward O’Grady, and Peter Paige.

During the ABC interview with Chris Cuomo, Ayers says the following:

The child’s mother Ayers defended his bomb-throwing past and repeated a statement that has infuriated his critics: “I don’t think we did enough.”

The college professor also argued to “Good Morning America’s” Chris Cuomo today that the bombing campaign by the Weather Underground, the group he helped found, was not terrorism.

The Weather Underground bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon and the New York City Police Department in protest of the Vietnam War.

“It’s not terrorism because it doesn’t target people, to kill or injure,” Ayers said.

As the Gateway Pundit reiterates, amazingly enough the MSM just get around to interviewing Bill Ayers who still to this day believes he was on the right side when he was bombing US government office.


Keeping some what to the Obama campaign rehearsed spin, on “GMA,” Ayers again downplayed any close ties to Obama despite the reference to “family friend.”

So now we are supposed to believe that there was justification to the actions of Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground. Because it was a violent time and the were doing it a a cause makes it different. So I guess that Bill Ayers would also be in favor of blowing up abortion clinics as they are doing it to support a cause as well. Hmm?

But he was un apologetic about his militant actions during the Vietnam War.

“What you call the violent past, that was a time when thousands of people were being murdered every month by our own government. … We were on the right side,” he told “AMA.”

The co-founder of the Weather Underground was, as McCann has claimed, unrepentant about the the bombings his group committed during the 1960s.

“The content of the Vietnam protest is that there were despicable acts going on, but the despicable acts were being done by our government. … I never hurt or killed anyone,” Ayers said.

“Frankly, I don’t think we did enough, just as today I don’t think we’ve done enough to stop these wars,” he said.

      Mr. Ayers is a college professor who has, in the past, was an anti-Viet Nam war activist. There is a HUGE difference between being a hippie in the 60′s and 70′s, and being a terrorist in the 21st century. I agree with him in saying that it’s good to speak to people from all walks of life and also am disappointed in the fact that the GOP wants to state that Obama’s career was planned out in the living-room of this man.

      This man is not the only college professor with whom Obama has a personal relationship and there were all kinds of parties and gatherings for Senator Barack Obama in the Chicago area at the time.

      Alot of ta do about nothing…


    2. Michelle on November 14th, 2008 8:16 pm

      This guy is insane….It wasn’t terrorism…WTF?

    3. Susan on November 14th, 2008 11:56 pm

      Ayers and his wife should be tried in a court of law for terrorism!! He proudly admits his guilt and shows no remorse. Both should be deported to a third world country…

    4. Fox Fire on November 15th, 2008 2:27 am


      A third world country?

      We’re so civilized!


      Look to Arizona…

      An eight-year-old child is being charged

      as an adult

      in a state that doesn’t hold adults responsible

      for leaving loaded weapons

      in the hands of children…


      This IS a third world country!

      If we can’t, even, trust our own society

      to give a child love, mercy and forgiveness…

      We’re all screwed-up…



    5. caesu on November 15th, 2008 5:57 am

      here another interview with him and his wife Bernadine Dohrn.


      don’t watch it if you can’t handle sentences longer than soundbites.

      he wasn’t a family friend of the Obama’s.
      but i, and many others i am sure, wouldn’t mind it one bit if he was.

    6. Kay Zee Es on November 15th, 2008 7:35 am

      Susan sez…

      “Both should be deported to a third world country…

      Yeah, and if we drag our heels re this economic & immigration crises we are facing too long, that 3rd world country very well may be US!

    7. ANewGirl on November 15th, 2008 7:49 am


      I don’t give a rat’s ass if Ayers has his PhD in Quantam Physics for cryin’ out loud !! What does his “profession” have to do with his ACTIONS of being a TERRORIST AND MURDERER OF INNOCENT PEOPLE ???????????????

      Okay, so I get it—he doesn’t like war or his own Government…does that mean you have to KILL PEOPLE???? You say- a lot of to do about nothing? Come on, Patti—how can you make a statement like that!? ….”much ado about nothing” is an old Shakespeare line—–this is NOT MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING! You can wrap it all up in your pretty package and tie it with a bow to make it look better…..it IS WHAT IT IS.

      Bill Ayers and his wife are boastful, zealous, highly-educated DEMENTED, TWISTED American Extremists and TERRORIST’s. Call them what you want. We know better. They should have been prosecuted for their crimes long ago and imprisoned or deported as the poster above suggests.

      GMA sucks, too for even giving this man any credibility or airtime. THIS IS BULLSH*T and was used for a ratings grab.

    8. katablog.com on November 15th, 2008 8:38 am

      There is a HUGE difference between being a hippie in the 60’s and 70’s, and being a terrorist in the 21st century.

      You are absolutely right Patti.

      I was a hippie in the 70′s. I wore rings on my toes, flowers in my hair and smoked funny cigarettes. I marched against the Vietnam war to express my political beliefs at the time. Bill Ayers was a terrorist. He belonged to a group that bombed public and private property, terrorizing US citizens because he wanted his political beliefs heard loud and clear.

    9. Mike on November 15th, 2008 9:30 am

      Why the interviews now instead of 2 weeks ago?

      Was ABC afraid it may have damaged Obama’s chances?

      I’m sure the Rev. Wright and Resko interviews are next. Theres no way the press will ever get their credibilty back after this.

      He set off his bombs to instill fear and terror…the definition of a terrorist.

    10. Richard on November 15th, 2008 9:34 am

      Since he’s a college professor, he’ll be treated with kid gloves at the harshest. Of all the illusions that prevail in this country, the regard given to the educational establishment, which consumes ever-greater amounts of taxpayer funds and produces ever-less literate and educated students, is perhaps the worst.

      I’m not at all against education; I’m against an educational system that produces what we have today, with the emphasis being on churning out an abundance of degrees that are worth less and less.

      And with the big-spending Democrats in power, alas, I doubt that things will change too much.

    11. txchic on November 15th, 2008 12:26 pm

      regardless of any injuries… i highly doubt that ayers paid to repair the damage he admits to being involved in. perhaps our government should garnish the checks from that university who have stooped to hiring an idiot with poor judgement?

    12. Maggie on November 15th, 2008 2:08 pm

      During the time Palin was mayor of Wasilla, her city was not the only one in Alaska charging rape victims. Experts testified before the Legislature that in a handful of small cities across Alaska, law enforcement agencies were charging victims or their insurance “more than sporadically.”

      One woman who wrote in support of the legislation says she was charged for her rape exam by a police department in the city of Juneau, which is hundreds of miles from Wasilla.

      But Wasilla stood out. Tara Henry, a forensic nurse who has been treating rape victims across Alaska for the last 12 years, told CNN that opposition to Croft’s bill from Wasilla Police Chief Charlie Fannon was memorable.

      “Several municipal law enforcement agencies in the state did have trouble budgeting and paying for the evidence collection for sexual assault victims,” Henry said. “What I recall is that the chief of police in the Wasilla police department seemed to be the most vocal about how it was going to affect their budget.”

      Croft has a similar memory. He said victims’ advocates suggested he introduce legislation as a way to shame cities into changing their practice, and Wasilla resisted.

      “I remember they had continued opposition,” Croft said. “It was eight years ago now, but they were sort of unrepentant that they thought the taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for that.”

      He does not recall discussing the issue with then-Mayor Palin.

      The bill, HB270, was before the legislature for six months. In testimony, one expert called the practice of billing the victim “incomprehensible.” Others compared it to “dust[ing] for fingerprints” after a burglary, only “the victim’s body is the crime scene.”

      “Asking them to pay for something law enforcement needs in order to investigate their case, it’s almost like blaming them for getting sexually assaulted,” she said.

      The Alaska Legislature agreed. The bill passed unanimously with the support of the Alaska Department of Public Safety, the Alaska Peace Officers Association and more than two dozen co-sponsors.

      After it became law, Wasilla’s police chief told the local paper, The Frontiersman, that it would cost the city $5,000 to $14,000 a year — money that he’d have to find.

      “In the past, we’ve charged the cost of the exams to the victim’s insurance company when possible,” Fannon was quoted as saying. “I just don’t want to see any more burden on the taxpayer.”

      He suggested the criminals should pay as restitution if and when they’re convicted. Repeated attempts to reach Fannon for comment were unsuccessful.

      Judy Patrick, who was Palin’s deputy mayor and friend, blames the state.

      “The bigger picture of what was going on at the time was that the state was trying to cut their own budget, and one of the things that they were doing was passing on costs to cities, and that was one of the many things that they were passing on, the cost to the city,” said Patrick, who recalls enormous pressure to keep the city’s budget down.

      But the state was never responsible for paying the costs of local investigations. Patrick was also a member of Wasilla City Council, and she doesn’t recall the issue coming before council members, nor does she remember discussing the issue with Palin.

      She does recall Palin going through the budget in detail. She said Palin would review each department’s budget line by line and send it back to department heads with her changes.

      “Sarah is a fiscal conservative, and so she had seen that the city was heading in a direction of bigger projects, costing taxpayers more money, and she was determined to change that,” Patrick said.

      Before Palin came to City Hall, the Wasilla Police Department paid for rape kits out of a fund for miscellaneous costs, according to the police chief who preceded Fannon and was fired by Palin. That budget line was cut by more than half during Palin’s tenure, but it did not specifically mention rape exams.

      In a statement, Jill Hazelbaker, communications director for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, said that “to imply that Gov. Palin is or has ever been an advocate of charging victims for evidence gathering kits is an utter distortion of reality.”

      “As her record shows, Gov. Palin is committed to supporting victims and bringing violent criminals to justice,” Hazelbaker said. “She does not, nor has she ever believed that rape victims should have to pay for an evidence gathering test.”

      The rape kit charges have become an issue among Palin critics who say as governor she has not done enough to combat Alaska’s epidemic problem of violence against women. They point to a small funding increase for domestic violence shelters at a time when Alaska has a multibillion-dollar budget surplus. Victims’ advocates say that services are lacking and that Palin cut funding for a number of programs that treat female victims of violence.

      In the past week, Alaska’s challenges with sexual assault have been in the spotlight again — in connection with an ongoing inquiry into whether Palin abused her power by firing the head of Alaska’s Department of Public Safety. Palin’s office released e-mails showing that one area of disagreement between her and Department of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan was his lobbying in Washington for $30 million to fund a new program of sexual assault response teams.

      The McCain-Palin campaign insists that fighting domestic violence and sexual assault are priorities for Palin. And they say she has been looking at other programs to support. As governor, Palin approved a funding increase for domestic violence shelters — $266,200 over two years. And she reauthorized a Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

      Meanwhile if we are going to hold that against Sarah…let’s look at the number one murder capital of the USA over 400 this year so far, Chicago and..the highest sales tax..along with one of the worst school systems.

      WHEN John Murtagh was 9 years old, Bill Ayers’ friends tried to kill him.

      “I remember my mother’s pulling me from the tangle of sheets and running to the kitchen where my father stood. Through the large windows overlooking the yard, all we could see was the bright glow of flames below. We didn’t leave our burning house for fear of who might be waiting outside,” wrote Murtagh recently in City Journal.

      It wasn’t personal. John’s dad was a judge presiding over a trial of some Black Panthers. John still remembers the red graffiti on the sidewalk the next morning: “Free the Panther 21; The Viet Cong Have Won; Kill the Pigs.”

      As best he recalls, Bernardine Dohrn, who’s now Ayers’ wife, first claimed credit for bombing John’s home in 1970.

      John Murtagh is a now lawyer and Yonkers city councilman running for the state Senate on the GOP ticket.

      What were these goals? How does Obama come to continue to associate with Ayers – a man who can’t bring himself to say to John Murtagh or to John’s mother or any other kin of the attacked: I’m sorry. I was wrong. It was a terrible thing to do.

      Obama’s campaign is busy fudging. His top political adviser claims Obama just didn’t know Ayers’ history when they first met. Bomber? What bomber? Right.

      “If that’s true, Obama has to be the dumbest man who ever graduated from Columbia University and Harvard Law School,” snorts Murtagh. “I don’t buy that at all.”

      Murtagh believes the relationship between the Obamas, Ayers and Dohrn goes back 30 years, to Michelle Obama’s time at Sidley Austin, a law firm that also employed Dohrn.

      Murtagh doesn’t blame Obama for what Ayers and his friends did. He blames Obama for picking a man like Ayers as a friend and mentor – and then covering up the friendship.

      In politics, things get complicated. Truth becomes hard to find. But not this.

      “The night they attacked our home, they also firebombed an army recruiting station out in Brooklyn and police patrol cars outside of Greenwich Village,” notes Murtagh. “Three weeks later, they accidentally blew themselves up. They intended to attack the officer’s club at Fort Dix.”

      Bill Ayres..the terrorist..per websters..own definition. John Murtagh was on tv last night..He said they put two bombs under the gas tank on their car outside his home, like a car bomb and 2 others besides those.

    14. john staton on November 15th, 2008 2:28 pm

      By his statements Bill is what he was. That being a dedicated Maoist. He attempted murder just wasn’t all that good at it. He directed students to “go home and murder your parents”. He advocated a war of genocide against the professional class in the US. It was his desire to be the Pol Pot of America. This is why he pulled out of the SDS and formed the Weather Underground because many in the Left at time were Libertarian in principal rather than a hard core hate group such as the SLA which used much the same tactics as Bill. This is one dangerous man that wants to see millions of Americans dead..JS

    15. Susan on November 15th, 2008 3:38 pm

      Unfortunately, Ayers was set free on a technicality, even though his movement took 8 innocent lifes.

      Ayers stated no one was hurt or killed on GMA, but try telling that to the families of those murdered in cold blood.

      Ayers family friend, OSAMA bin Laden Barack SADDAM HUSSEIN Obama, has learned well from his many mentors (Wright, Farrakhan, etc.)…

    16. nurturer on November 15th, 2008 5:34 pm

      If anybody deserves a bitch slapping, it’s this guy.

    17. Fox Fire on November 15th, 2008 7:20 pm

      Well, I guess desperate measures were taken. But the fact of the Viet Nam war remains the same. About 50,000 Americans died in that war. BUT, since then, over TWICE as many have died of suicide. Obviously, we didn’t do enough…

      It’s so funny that all you web-surfers, who sound alot more radical than this man, should dare point your finger. To, even, mention the ‘Power of the People’ or to consider yourselves lucky enough to be able to come on this blog and exercise your freedom of speech, is ludacris! You want to say you have the power, but, few of us would actually use it… I fear that many of you would sit at home, behind your keyboards and whine!

      It is because of the things this man did, along with many others, that make it possible for us to use our rights to protest, our rights to freedom of speech, as well as, our right to bear arms. When government becomes so powerful and corrupt that it sends our boys to a senseless war and allows them to return without receiving the medical care and the psychological care they need, it is our right as citizens to make a stand. While I’ll agree that many used peaceful means, there were some radicals, as well; but, collectively, we made the voice of America heard. We were tired of the games of war that our boys were engaged in during the 1960′s and early 1970′s. We were tired of seeing our boys returned lifeless, limbless, lamed, suffering from addictions or other psychological damages and a government that turned its’ back on these boys, over and over, again. Half of you probably don’t remember the actions that were taken by our government… or should I say inaction?

      Talk about a major ‘BITCH’ slap!

      They were refused help because Viet Nam was not, officially, proclaimed a war; so for years after the war, they had to fight for everything they got. It was years before they could be treated in veterans’ hospitals for various disabilities and diseases that steamed, directly, from the war. Not to mention the right to be honored with their participation in the Veterans Day Parades.

      How soon we forget that being a part of ‘We, the People’ carries, with it, the job of social responsibility. In many people’s eyes, this man is a hero, as were the three people that died in an explosion during the process of making a bomb. No innocent blood was shed. Can we say the same for Viet Nam, Desert Storm or for the War in Iraq?

      I think not!


    18. brie. on November 15th, 2008 9:23 pm

      How did this guy get off on a technicality…the bombings and killing people and he still thinks it was right to do that…???

    19. Kay Zee Es on November 15th, 2008 9:35 pm

      Fox Fire convolutes…
      “It is because of the things this man did, along with many others, that make it possible for us to use our rights to protest, our rights to freedom of speech, as well as, our right to bear arms. ”

      I think, I hope, that she is referring to Sen John McCain and not some illusory reference to the Ayers character. If she is referring to Ayers she must be reading Orwell’s “1984″ or at the very least Carroll’s(Dodgson) “Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass in the context of non-fiction literature.

      As for b*tch slap, I need to concur that the major reason Vietnam was not declared a war, like Iraq, was to limit benefits for those brave men and women, much to our shame. But we are turning that around and actually learning from that dark experience. Our veterans of the armed services deserve and will receive the best we can offer them, our we should vote out the slugs who oppose that.

    20. nurturer on November 16th, 2008 10:52 am

      As is always the case with far-leftists, they criticize the government, then demand that government’s protection when their cowardly backs are against the wall.

      So is the case of Bill Ayers, when a FoxNews reporter tried to question him. Being the brave soul that he is, Ayers called the very agency he tried to destroy – the police.

      there she is again with her creative naming of the President-elect mixing up his name with a terrorist and a murderous dicator.

      the German Shepherds

      and the fire hoses?

      With Nixon in the White House,

      the country went nuts.

      “With Nixon in the White House, the country went nuts. Four dead in Ohio, etc.”

      4 dead in Ohio, izzat all? I can do ya one better than that, and stay in Ohio yet! Hmmm, let’s see, oh yeah!

      try December 3, 1979 in yer wayback machine. Now tune in…got it?

      Riverfront Stadium
      The WHO concert of all places…

      ELEVEN dead in oh-hi-oh(hummin’ the tune)

      Gimme a break, the country did not go nuts while Pres Nixon was president, there were demonstrations against the war AND for Civil Rights, if I remember, but it was still the most free country on the planet, thanks to our brave fighting men and women willing to make sacrifices to secure that which we take for granted.

      You are starting to become as comical as your so-called antagonists, by the way. Keep trying and you will make it there.

      I’m sure that tho Billy has not renounced his
      hatred for America underscored with bombs
      and stuff, that he would be great fiddling with
      curriculum choices for our school children.
      Saul Alinsky’s influence needs to be ‘redistributed’

      you Obamaites are severly mentally challenged. ayers is trying to spin his relationship with obama with long words and talking in circles, thinking that he’s smarter than us, just like his elitist “family friend” Obama. Get your head out of Obama’s ass for a second and know Michelle Obama and Ayers wife worked together.

      Ayers spin on GMA about his forward in his book is pure bullsh*t. Ayers knows he f’ed up when he put that in there. The proof is out there that Obama and Ayers were more than mere “neighbors” BUT the MSM outside of FNC and ABC will not investigate it.

      I’m sure you people believe in the tooth fairy and the easter bunny if you believe that Ayers and Obama are not friends.

    28. scott on November 17th, 2008 8:07 am

      caesu – you and anybody else that voted for Obama are ANTI-AMERICAN as they voted for MARXISM. It will be funny when you need a life saving operation 5 years from now while health care is being rationed by the government, refuses to grant you the operation but instead lets a younger illegal immigrant get the same operation; while you ultimately die.

      Censorship has already started!

      His performance on 60 minutes was laughable as he did NOT provide any specific details to fix our economy except to say he will do “whatever it takes.” Remember those words caesu, WHATEVER IT TAKES, including driving the economy into a depression so he can then implement his socialistic and far left ideas!

    29. Mis-Underestimated on November 17th, 2008 8:11 am

      Ayers is an idiot, GMA is hosted and run by a bunch of idiots. So, as they say, birds of the feather. “Good Mourning America”

      please lay off the lunatic blogs and talkradio for a while and treat yourself with some education.

      then maybe you will realize that all your statements for example the ones about marxism are incredibly dumb.
