May 4, 2013: Bill Ayers said people can’t equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the Boston Marathon bombings. He said to do so would be like comparing folks enjoying a little target practice at a shooting range with what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. I’m so sure Weather Undergrounders like Bill’s common law wife made it to the FBI’s Top Ten Wanted List because they were so peaceful and law-abiding.
But. But. But.
According to Bill, he and his violent extremist bomber buds never KILLED anyone.
Too bad he’s either lying or all those drugs he’s used have damaged his memory.
In 1969 and 1970, he and his terrorist thugs detonated more than half a dozen bombs in public places. The fact noone outside their own incompetent members was killed is due more to luck than lack of lethal intent.
In March 1970, while preparing a nailbomb the Weather Underground intended to detonate at a dance at a local Army base, three of them blew themselves up.
And while they didn’t take credit for a lethal bombing at a San Franciso Police Department the month before, there is good reason to believe they did it.
Moreover, having probably killed and definitely been killed, they clearly had no intention of stopping.
In April 1970, Chicago police raid and shut down a Weather Underground bomb factory and confiscated 59 sticks of dynamite, ammunition, and nitro glyerine.
In 1971, the FBI located another bomb factory in San Francisco and the group detonated two more bombs.
In 1972, they bombed the Pentagon.
In 1973, they detonated three more bombs.
In 1974, they detonated four bombs.
In 1975, they detonated four bombs.
In October of 1981, a group of Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army members held up a Brinks truck. When authorities stopped them, they opened fire, killing two police officers and one Brinks guard, as well as wounding several others.
Ayers and his common law wife both got off, not because they were not guilty, but because the FBI had messed up on procedures. Ayers was later quoted as crowing they were,
“Guilty as sin, free as a bird. America is a great country.”
In 2001, Ayers appeared in Chicago Magazine, proudly stomping on the American flag and saying he had no regrets about his long association with the violent domestic terrorist organization. He said,
“I acted appropriately in the context of those times.”
Appropriately? This man detonated bombs in public spaces in the name of peace; he claims to hate imperialism, yet has long supported Communism; he also claims to hate globalization, yet has been involved for decades in advancing the career of Barack “It takes a global village” Obama’s career.
Recognizing the two-faced hypocrisy of this arrogant Leftist, tweeters weighed in on ways that Ayers and Tsarnaev are like Totally Different.
- The Weather Underground didn’t get their own operatives killed. Oh wait. Yes, they did.
- Both were guilty as sin, but only one went to jail.
- Ayers didn’t use pressure cookers.
- Tsarnaev never wore an earring.
- Ayers stole taxpayers’ money after he bombed U.S. citizens.
- Tsarnaev stole taxpayers’ money before he bombed U.S. citizens.
- Ayers is still drawing oxygen.
- Tsarnaev never threw a party for Obama.
- Ayers has Obama’s cell phone number.
- Tsarnaev has an Obama phone.
- Ayers got tenure and became a liberal media celebrity.
- Tsarnaev never set off a bomb at the Pentagon to celebrate Ho Chi Minh’s birthday.
- Ayers’ bombings weren’t Terrorism-Terrorism.
- We don’t have a picture of Tsarnaev standing on an American Flag.
Summary: They both hate America. The reasons don’t matter.
