Bill Ayers: Didn’t think Obama connection ‘would blow up like this’

Speaking from the well-heeled confines of the University of Chicago’s International House on Wednesday, Bill Ayers said he was “amazed” to see himself on TV “cast as some kind of public enemy” with close ties to Barack Obama during one of the 2008 election’s biggest controversies.

At the event meant to promote his new book Public EnemyConfessions of an American Dissident, Ayers slammed the “opportunistic media” and the “eager campaign staffs of the right, the middle, and even the moderate left” for resurrecting the Weather Underground, a radical far-left group Ayers co-founded which bombed government property and banks throughout the 1970s.

“Bernadine and I had hosted the initial fundraiser for Obama and uncharacteristically donated a little money to his campaign,” said Ayers, reading an excerpt. “We lived a few blocks apart and sat on a couple nonprofit boards together. So what? Who could have predicted it would blow up like this?”

Ayers’ association with Obama, first brought to the mainstream by TV host George Stephanopoulos, ultimately sparked Sarah Palin’s famous accusation the Democratic nominee was “palling around with terrorists.”  Ayers, who has never apologized for the Weather Underground’s violent past, devised a strategy of “turn away, no comment, no elaboration, no clarification, no response” in the heat of the controversy.

But during his event at the University of Chicago, Ayers frequently brought up the “unexpected love” and support he received from his family and friends during the tumultuous 2008 election.

He regaled his audience of mostly elderly supporters by detailing several domestic scenes with his wife, Northwestern University law professor Bernadine Dohrn, and their three adult children, Malik, Zayd, and Chesa. For example, he recalled a “long slow lunch” during a summertime retreat in the mountains in which his sons offered to create a “fully protected financial escape pod” in case things went sour.

Ayers said his new book is ultimately not about the election but rather about “teaching and parenting” and living a life that “doesn’t make a mockery of your values.” He urged his audience to “try to be good citizens, try to be moral people.”

Ayers’ wife Bernadine Dohrn was also at the event, with Ayers introducing her as his “partner in crime,” adding, to laughter from the audience, “she hates it when I say that. It’s a metaphor.”

Dohrn was another prominent member of the Weather Underground, and spent almost a year in jail after she and Ayers turned themselves in to the authorities in 1980. She was released with most of her charges dropped due to prosecutorial misconduct and was later hired by a prestigious Chicago law firm whose head at the time was a family friend, paving her way to academia.

Speaking next to her husband, Dohrn addressed the paradox of having once been on the run from the law and her current position as a law professor by saying that “the academy is filled with people who’ve committed violence.” As examples, she cited Ann Coulter and generals who “tortured at Abu Ghraib” getting invited to speak at colleges across the country.

“The academy does not have clean hands, let’s just agree,” said Dohrn.

Charles Rollet is a senior at Northwestern University, and was a summer 2013 College Fix Fellow at The Daily Caller.

    Dhorn and Ayers are self-righteous, narcissistic, violent twits,

  • Chance Boudreaux

    and yet the Obamazombies were racist and voted for the Man-Child who promised them phones and payback to the Crackers.

  • Joyfully

    p.o.s., both of them.

  • I’m sure Ayers thinks he’s an “independent.”

    Required reading from The Last Psychiatrist regarding propaganda:

  • aloysiusmiller

    Absolutely shameless. Comparing themselves to Ann Coulter. Ayers and Dohrn are two sick sociopaths tied together by a sordid past.

    • Adam Weisshaupt

      Everyone on the left is a sociopath. Point out that they advocating achieving their ends using the barrels of govt guns and see how they react. They see other people only as a means to achieving their ends and they will be happy to sacrifice you to a gas chamber if you don’t want to cooperate.

      • I am more than willing to sacrifice 35 million liberals to the end of a rifle barrel to thwart their designs for MY way of life.

  • Fat_Man

    Ayers is a murderer. He was part of a criminal conspiracy to engage in terrorist bombings. One of their bombs went off in a “workplace mishap” destroying a house in New York City and killing several of his co-conspirators. That is felony murder. The @$$#013 should be doing hard time, not going on a book tour.

    • Adam Weisshaupt

      But now guys like that accuse the Tea Party, Conservatives, Christians, and Vets of terrorism and violence for holding the “extreme” views that we, as a Nation should live within our means, that an individual has rights and with those come responsibilities which include not willfully leeching off of others at gun point, and that a Government should be limited in its powers.

    • Gman51

      One of those killed was his ‘fiancee’. He married Bernie on the rebound.

  • mikesixes

    Don’t forget, Ayers&Dohrn dedicated their book(Prairie Fire, I think it was called) to Sirhan Sirhan, killermof RFK. Real nice folks.

    • well even I kind of have a soft spot for sirhan sirhan..he got rid of a liberal kennedy twerp..

      • Margie

        Sirhan was a patsy.

  • mnemonicmike

    It’s the ego of liberals … normal standards that apply to mortals don’t apply to the Olympian Gods. Let’s hope the next Weather Underground bomb catches one of their children in its blast radius. Oh… does that sound cruel? Isn’t that weird?

  • MichaelKennedy

    I don’t think Dorhn has a law license. She got a JD but has been admitted to no bar. Of course, Northwestern, with Bill Ayres’ father on the Board, hired her anyway,

    • 5JimBob

      Bill Ayers’ father, a very wealthy man, kept his son out of the prison he so richly deserved by buying the cleverest, most unscrupulous legal guns available.

  • solotar

    They’re just such fun and fun-loving people. It’s such a pity they tried to murder people.

  • ConservativeJoy

    I’ve heard that “these “partners in crime” have a tie with Castro in the late 1960’s that involved money and Communism. I guess Americans are supposed to ignore Obama lies about not knowing the Ayers and not having his political kickoff in the Ayers’ living room.

    • PJ Schwackhammer

      Dorhn went to Cuba and met with high-ranking officers in the North Vietnamese KGB. She took orders to return to the US and “bring the war home.” That’s not a rumor or an urban legend, it’s a black and white fact. She bragged about that trip for decades.

      They aren’t “dissidents.” They’re traitors.

  • TheProudDuck

    Lying sacks of potatoes. Ann Coulter has never committed violence (someone correct me if wrong). And the general responsible for Abu Ghraib has never been invited to speak at any college.

    • werewife

      You insult potatoes, which are nutritious and delicious, and could well become the symbol of a great DC institution: http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2013/10/14/PETA-to-Redskins-Keep-Name-Change-Mascot-to-Potato
      Seriously, Bill Ayres and his lovely succubus/familiar are the poster couple for utter moral derangement.

      • BaconLovingInfidel

        Yes, this is simply unacceptable commentary from the Duck.

        Given all of the wonderful dishes combining duck and potatoes, he should know better.

        If confused, try a bacon wrapped tater tot, and then TRY to insult the lowly tater.

  • Scott Allen

    I don’t recall Ann Coulter blowing people up or killing people and I am getting old, but i don’t recall a general torturing any prisoners at Abu Ghraib

    • BaconLovingInfidel

      but Ann Coulter does remind me of the Witch in Narnia and Cruella DeVille from 1001 dalmatians.

      • Scott Allen

        I am sorry for you, as I tried to keep my comment on a factual point, you on the other hand brought in looks and a disney story, I would like to see your picture because then I could make fun of your looks and of course not respond in an intellectual fashion. On a personal note I would love to be seen with Ann Coulter anytime.

  • Hank Seiter

    Ayers is an utter anti-American Marxist douche … and so is Obama.
    Just sayin’.

  • Steve Gregg

    According to Larry Grathwohl, an informant in the Weather Underground, Bill Ayers ultimately wanted his socialist revolution to imprison 25 million Americans in “re-education camps” and mass murder 25 million Americans who could not be “re-educated.” It is ironic to hear such a villain speak of morality.

    • Dianewe

      The Useful Idiots have so much Pride every Communist Revolution ends up the same? Millions Dead,Mass Starvation, and the few at the top all escaping the collapse of a once civilized Society.
      Replace God and Invite the Devil he loves the Atheist Communist who wants (Equality) which ends up in absolutely destroying the poorest of the poor,and murdering of the successful.
      Mao- 55,000,000
      Stalin – over 50,000,000
      Cambodia – 2 million after we left Vietnam
      Ukraine – 25,000,000 starved to death in the bread basket of Russia, they ate they’re own children.
      French Revolution – millions of people have suffered and died over the Theology of Greed and Envy, Marxists want Luxury and your put on this Earth to give them your Blood. It’s Evil, Demonic, Charity and Love are absent, or rather disappear. Fear, hunger, spying, unemployment til your worked to death.
      If I had the Money I wouldn’t send one of my kids to the so called Ivy League colleges r Universities! They’re re-education Camps before the Revolution.

      Age usually mellows but you’re right.

      • Aussievick

        Not this bunch. The minute they THOUGHT they had the ultimate socialist in the W.H. & nobody would notice, their “reawaking” began just like a Zombie being resurrected.

  • monsterdog

    I must just be an intolerant bigoted a-hole, but I just can’t seem to find the time to sit still while a terrorist who spent a decent fraction of his life bombing people preaches morality at me. Must be a character flaw on my part.

    • He was bombing your lawfully elected government for your own good, same reason that leftists do anything evil.

  • Dustin

    On 9/11/2001 the New York Times had a picture of Bill Ayers standing on an American flag while discussing how he wishes he and his terrorists had done more bombing. Among their attempts was a pipe bomb full of nails intended to blow up a dance with unarmed US Military and their spouses/girlfriends. He’s evil and unrepentant. I sincerely hope he doesn’t approve of my morality any more than I hope the devil approves.

    • Merican

      Interesting facts: The Godfather of Illinois Politics, the well-connected father of the terrorist, William Ayers, also financed young Barack Obama’s rise to power. Steve Diamond, a law professor at Santa Clara University School of Law, identifies Chicago’s wealthy Jews, particularly Thomas G. Ayers, as the financial power behind Obama….http://watch.pair.com/synarchy-3.html

  • Michael Asher

    The premise of this article is utterly fallacious. Ayers and even his parents were much tighter with Obama than he acknowledges: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/03/what_the_mailman_knows_about_ayers_and_obama.html

  • JohnSkookum

    What kind of violence did Ann Coulter ever engage in? She is an inflammatory polemicist. Ayers and Dohrn are admitted bombers and attempted murderers. Big difference.

    And I love the part about the “financial escape pod”. Yes, when your father is the chairman of the electric company you tend to have those options. Lifestyles of the 0.01%…

    God, do I hate champagne socialists, more than just about anyone on earth.

    Screw you, you murderous creep. Are we all supposed to forget that you hate us so much that you tried to disrupt our society through terrorism? President Obama’s entire worldview is a product of you and others very much like you. I don’t mean that as a complement.

    • Gman51

      Yes, amazingly this POS taught young people at U of Chicago for decades to be anti-Americans of the worst order. They are out there now in business, government and academia multiplying and destroying and subverting. Anyone wonder why the country is going down so fast?

  • Fresh Air

    Bernadine Dohrn was a lawyer at Sidley & Austin before she lost her law license, but was allowed to keep an office there even after. I have heard from one of the partners there that a certain summer associate named Michelle Robinson was such a useless prima donna that, in desperation, she was packed off to work with Dohrn. So essentially her legal experience that summer consisted in working for a disbarred radical, who just happened to be the wife of Zero’s terrorist pal.

    It is further known that Zero’s early electoral adventures were partly funded by Bill Ayers’ father, Tom, at Bill’s behest. The idea that Ayers just hosted a dinner for Zero is laughable. But at least he now completely admits the dinner, which for many years has been hearsay (though confirmed by a local liberal named Steve Diamond who wanted to set the record straight. Can’t remember his blog, but Diamond talks about it). Also a woman going by the handle “Backyard Conservative” confronted Ayers at O’Hare and, surprisingly, got a similar account.

  • He didn’t do those things because the times were crazy. The times were crazy because he did those things.

    • BaconLovingInfidel

      but, but, but everybody was bombing and shooting the pigs back then…

  • Laka

    “I never expected it to blow up like this.” said Ayers. “And I know a thing or two about bombs!”

  • Steve Kellmeyer

    So, if someone put a bomb in their car, they wouldn’t have a problem with that? I suppose not…

  • YouGoGirl

    Did anyone count the lies Bill Ayers made in this article. I’m too lazy to, perhaps it would be easier to just count the true statements. He doesn’t have too much trouble bending things to make himself look better , does he ? And Ms. Dohrn’s formula bombers= Ann Coulter. What a gas bag, how come she doesn’t get called on this ?

  • Michael C Stephenson

    It would be hard to “make a mockery” of this clown’s values.

  • Youknow

    What a cunt.

  • Charlotta Jones

    I’d like to know who Ann Coulter killed. I know these two asswipes killed people for real.

  • robin hood in reverse

    People remember who ripped them off longer than their loved ones but we need to make sure the low information voters know who to hate and give ex-government employees hope.

    In order for Mr. Ayers to clear his name the wordsmith has to write “Dreams of our founding fathers” and get everything right.

    Summary Tweet:

    Government is 20% more expensive than the free market. Each government job costs 6 jobs. A stable money supply creates an innovative middle class.

    The Backup

    A Harvard Professor and previous President of IMF wrote a book called “This time is Different” . Carman Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff studied fiscal crisis in 65 countries over 500 years.

    Government is a monopoly that is 20% more expensive than the free market.

    If we go from a 38% tax rate to 20% tax rate with a balanced budget the private sector will grow from $11 Trillion to over $16 Trillion. Tax revenue won’t decrease 48%. Tax revenue will only decrease 24%. Half of Washington won’t have to go on a permanent vacation, only one out four. Employment will increase 25% so displaced bureaucrats will have lots of new opportunities to contribute to society.

    If we get down to a balanced 10%, $20 Trillion – more than a 60% increase in jobs if half of Washington goes on a permanent vacation, each dollar earned buys ($0.90/$0.62) 45% more, and hard America becomes a soft warm place and our soft power will return.

    John Nash’s beautiful mind recognized the importance of interactions in which the results of one person’s choices depend not only on his own behavior but also on the choices of another person. There is a related game called Ultimatum. You and your partner split $10. Less than $3 deals disgust and anger. The dealer has a pulpit.

    The Laffer effect is no joke. Charles Adams, an international tax attorney and historian, wrote books on taxes. Once tax rates rise above the disgust and anger point, the expected extra tax revenue never shows up. A flat tax system is part of Constitution. Everyone has to pay taxes to keep as many people’s tax rate below the disgust and anger tax rate or make sure an overwhelming majority is disgusted with high taxes.

    Carman, Kenneth, and John all sincerely believe dealers can routinely get an $8 to $10 deal by getting his or her partner work for a $3 to $5 deal. With each $3 to $5 of earned success the partner becomes a dealer that turns the $3 to $5 deal into $6 to $8 of earned success. Turning $10 into $13 is a win-win systemic solution that creates good people, great outcomes, and durable trust but when it rains, rainmakers show up and turn everything to dirt.

    There will always be zero-sum losers who just accept less than $3 deals and think the key to success is being an abusive dealer. A $7-$3 deal isn’t better than a $6-$4 deal because $7-$3 deals turn into $6-$2, $5-$1, and $4-two bit deals.

    Rainmakers turn everything to dirt because they feel entitled to $7up and someone else has to pay for the diet $7up. A shared sacrifice life is the unknowing bully master plan and then you die. The rainmaker coach treads through players who can’t make enough back court shots to win the game.There is another way to explain the same thing!

    When you walk into Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s place) there is a bust of Turgot. Turgot inspired Smith, Mises, Hayek, Rothbard, Jackson, and Friedman. Before the Fabian Keynes reopened Pandora’s box, the political economic debate was largely over and the Austrian School of Economics won.

    Figuratively speaking, every state is a Prince. A good Prince only defends negative rights, sees the means of production as the small businessman, does not clip coins, lets the church provide charity, lets people make decisions on as localized as possible basis, and does not do the rich man any favors. Everyone has the right to free speech. A man’s house is his castle and a warrant is needed to forcibly visit. People take better care of their own property than the state takes care of public property. Limits on usury so that banking is a very boring endeavor. Indirect taxes make more sense than direct. The private market should always be allowed to compete with the public market. From 1776 to 1913, the sum of Federal, State, and Local taxes were less than 10% and the dollar only dropped 3% in value.

    Second place is the first place loser but a peek is worth ten free market estimators. “Wealth of Nations” is easy to summarize. Companies play free market basketball on a diving board because a company cannot maximize its’ profit if the company hits more often than the dummy.Friedrich Hayek introduced himself to Fabian Keynes by asking about Sir John’s predecessor Francis Edgeworth. Edgeworth did the invisible hand check math but what about the poor and the middle class!

    Thanks to Thomas Jefferson and company, we were a 10% tax soft warm place for 150 years. Switzerland, much of Eastern Europe, and Russia are on the 16% flat tax plan.From 1776 to 1914, the dollar only dropped 3%. Over the last 100 years, the dollar dropped 95%.

    The 10% public sector bottom 20% to top 20% ideal distribution is around $3.50,$4.50,$6.25,$8.25, and $11.25. We went off the gold standard 40 years ago. Over that period the average overall tax rate was about 30%. Over the last 40 years relative wealth distribution went from ($2.75,$4.00,$5.25,$7.00,$9.25) to ($1.25,$2.00,$2.75,$3.50, & $18.50). 30% to 40% Obama has taken us to ($1.00,$1.75,$2.50, $3.25, and $16.75). If the dollar is no longer the world currency,($0.75,$1.31,$1.87,$2.41,$12.19).

    George Washington never told a lie, created guerrilla warfare, and was our first President. Soon after the Fertile Crescent created the first city-state, someone else created guerrilla warfare.After winning, Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall and won’t leave. Useless third party Humptovation is folly of the elite until freely associating masses revolt well …. if there is no free market innovation, a smart humpty dumpty will tax up to the disgust and anger set point and clip coins until he or she takes a digger.

    Free market innovation and it’s relationship with humptovation is a standard of living educated guess. All these rough guess are based on China going from a 100% tax nation state to a 50% tax nation state improving the standard of living 14 fold over 35 years. With approximately 30% overall tax rate, the standard of living has been increasing in the 2.6% or 30% improvement over 10 years based on a stable money supply something that $1.00 last year cost $0.974 this year. Judging from our 10% tax rate past, reducing the tax rate to 10%, reducing government to the same size, and a stable money supply, the standard of living improved 4% to 6% or 50% to 80% improvement over 10 years after a 16% improvement as a consequence of going from 30% to 10%. 40% tax rate and government equals 11% to 14% improvement over 10 years after 10% reduction due to going from 30% to 40%. 20% tax rate and government equals 50% to 60% improvement over ten years after a 15% improvement as a consequence of going from 30% to 20%.

    Smaller government means more happiness, innovation, and wealth but despots constipate the economic diving board of bailouts, barriers, codes, and clipped coins in order to turn the board into a czar mat so they can play with their drone stick. That’s the only way despots can get some loving. Humptovation can still double the wealth of the top 20% and as a society we need to put as stops in place to prevent that from happening.

    If we continue on the path Obama and company put us on we are going to go from ($1.25,$2.00,$2.75,$3.50,$18.50) to ($1.10,$1.93,$2.75,$3.67,$18.34) or even worse over the next ten years. If we change course and follow our founding fathers’ path, bottom 20% to top 20% wealth distribution should be ($5.25, $6.25,$9.37,$12.27, & $18.32) – no skin off the lovable ruling elite’s back.

  • PJ Schwackhammer

    It’s not a metaphor. It’s a fact. Dorhn and Ayers weren’t “war protesters” who were “working for peace.” They are traitors and murderers who were on the other side, and by their own admission they would have shed the blood of millions if they’d managed to seize power.

    What a shame liberal academia is so irredeemably blinkered by hatred of their own country.

  • sez-who

    Now that Dohrn and Ayers are sitting pretty in their fancy-schmancy home and their fancy-schmancy university, I wonder – what have they done for Robert Fogarty, seriously wounded, and the family of Brian McConnell, dead, by the bomb Dorhn and Ayers planted.

WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT OUR UNIVERSITIES THAT THEY WELCOME AND EMPLOY PEOPLE LIKE THIS?

  • I met Ayers several times way back when, and knew a few of his fellow Weathermen quite well. They were, as a group, deluded, murderous, children. It’s an indication of how far off-course our Nation is that we grant them positions of power and privilege. They should be, at minimum, ostracized. But I could think of a better idea!
    As far as the Chicago-shill sitting in the White House, of course he’s connected to Ayers. And to Wright, and to all the other leftists and machine pols in Chicago.

  • tbd13.0

    How this individual is qualified to hold a job let alone educate is amazing to me. How being educated by someone like this passes as a College Education these days is very telling.

    Any surprise why many with College Degrees can’t find work? It’s not all the economy, some of it is the way people like this think.

A Brinks guard was killed, as were two state police officers. Chesa Boudin was adopted by Ayers and his wife, proving that they were all still comrades in crime.
