Ayers In His Own Words

Get this: former Weather Underground bomber William Ayers (who told the New York Times in 2001 “I don't regret setting bombs; I feel we didn't do enough.”) now says that it's wrong to call him an "unrepentant terrorist." Ayers says that Israel and the United States are among the real terrorists. This from Ayer's own web site:
". . . an Israeli assault on a neighborhood in Gaza is terrorism;" Ayers says.
And Ayers also says that "The U. S. bombings in Vietnam for a decade were acts of terrorism."
Ayers compares both of these to Sherman's March to the Sea which he describes as "indefensible terror."
Of terrorism, Ayers says the U. S. government "does it routinely."
Yes, Ayers admits that Arabs are capable of terrorism as well.
But Ayers also says that capitalism "is exhausted as a force for progress: built on exploitation, theft, conquest, war, and racism . . ." Ayers proclaims "that capitalism and imperialism must be defeated and a world revolution . . . must win."
But don't worry about Obama's association with Ayers. It's just a diversionary issue; nothing to be concerned about.
