Mr. Obama's Neighborhood.... indeed

YOU THINK IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE? A former member of William Ayres' Weather Underground discusses the philosophy and goals of the Weather Underground.

You see, most liberals view the Weather Underground as a misguided element of their coalition that just went too far 40 years ago. Their objectives of "ending the war" were commendable and their intentions were good, but they just went too far by bombing and killing. That's how somebody like Obama can get away with saying "Bill Ayres is an English Professor in Chicago who happens to live in my neighborhood who did some bad things when I was eight years old." WOW!

Either Obama is a extraordinarily naive, or he is doing some serious covering up here (perhaps a little of both). A quick reminder: Obama started his political career in William Ayres' living room. He served for years on the same boards with him. They shard an office at the same address for years. Their wives worked at the same law firm for years (Ayres is married to terrorist Bernardine Dohrn). William Ayres has been loudly and publicly unrepentant... etc... etc... "just a guy who lives in my neighborhood" indeed.

Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism: A Communist manifesto written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground:

"Just a guy in my neighborhood..."

Is a man ever to be judged by the company he keeps, or is everything a simple mater of "guilt by association"? If Charles Manson was my friend for many years, would any of that be a reflection on me? Or do I get a complete pass just by saying that I disagree with Manson's behavior with regard to the people he murdered, and point out that Manson committed his crimes when I was eight years old? Hello? is there anybody home?

  1. The parts I found particularly chilling:

    1. "Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the eradication of the social system based on profit. Socialism means control of the productive forces for the good of the whole community instead of the few who live on hilltops and in mansions. Socialism means priorities based on human need instead of corporate greed. Socialism creates the conditions for a decent and creative quality of life for all."


    2. The Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Zionist rhetoric.

    It reminded me of something I read a couple years ago:

    Under the Germany section:

    "While anti-Semitism based on religious doctrines and traditional anti-Jewish prejudices continued to exist, Jewish leaders, academics, and others believe that a newer, nontraditional form of anti-Semitism is emerging in the country. This form tends to promote anti-Semitism as part of its other stands against globalization, capitalism, Zionism, and foreigners."

    Anti-zionism=Pro-Palestine=Pro Hamas=Tolerance of Iran's obscenity

    What do these three themes have in common with this years election? Frightening.
