Former Weather Underground terrorist and Obama associate Bill Ayers is having trouble with his book tour, it seems. Local news sources in Wisconsin report that his latest public appearance has been canceled due to a lack of public interest.
The Madison Public Library, which had organized the hour-long event, said they “didn’t have the kind of interest” they had anticipated.
Ayers has been touring the country in support of his new book, Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident.
On the cover of his book Ayers has declared himself a “public enemy.”Judging from his cancelled speech, the public must feel that the dislike is entirely mutual.
This so-called “dissident” has managed to provoke nothing more than public indifference. Suitable treatment for someone who to this day boasts unapologetically of his murderous past, and who, in fact, was recently caught joking about his former terrorist activities.
No doubt many feel he should be behind bars, rather than parading around the country like a celebrity.
This country’s elite liberal class may view Ayers as a hero and friend. But it appears the rest of America has little interest in what he has to say.
