The “mainstream” media worked pretty hard to keep Barack Obama’s association with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers quiet during the election.
But now that it’s over, we see a candid admission in the Chicago Sun-Times from Ayers that, yes, they did work together and yes, they were friends and yes, he did help launch Obama’s political career in his house.
A little more than the “guy in my neighborhood” that Obama said he was.
From the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday:
Ayers, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, adds few new details about his relationship with Obama in the afterword to Fugitive Days: Memoirs of an Anti-War Activist. The book is being reissued this month.
“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes.
Now Ayers is claiming he didn’t really say what he said on 911:
“I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
Sorry, Mr. Ayers, I know that Marxists like you love to revise history but you just don’t get to in this case.
Here is a link to a New York Times article published September 11, 2001 in which Ayers is quoted by Dinitia Smith making this statement.
So, America: how does it feel having elected a president who is the “family friend” of an unrepentant domestic terrorist who helped launch the president-elects political career in his living room?
