Ayers Defends His Terrorist Career At Kent State

First we have this report on Ayer’s fellow terrorist, from the Associated Press:

Search drags on for burial spot for bomb suspect

By DENISE LAVOIE, STEVE LeBLANC and RODRIQUE NGOWI | May 7, 2012

BOSTON (AP) — Despite more than 100 offers, a Massachusetts funeral director is striking out in his search for a burial location for the body of a Boston Marathon bombing suspect who was killed in a gun battle with police.

On Monday, Worcester funeral home director Peter Stefan said he’d received 120 burial offers from the United States and Canada for the body of Tamerlan Tsarnaev. But he said when he talked to officials in the cities and towns where the graves are located, nobody wanted the body there…

Stefan said when he made follow-up calls on all the grave offers, he got the same result each time.

"It’s not only Massachusetts that doesn’t want him," Stefan said. "Nobody wants him. And all these people who have donated graves, I’ve made some calls and said to somebody in the cities and towns where the graves were, ‘Hey, we would like to bury the guy there that was part of the marathon bombing.’"

He said the response was often the same: "You’re not gonna do that here." …

Stefan said he plans to ask for a burial in the city of Cambridge, where Tsarnaev lived. Cambridge City Manager Robert Healy urged the Tsarnaev family not to make a request…

Why doesn’t some institute of higher learning just stuff him and make him an honorary professor?

Speaking of which, we have this update on Professor Bill Ayers (a retired professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago), from the Akron Beacon Journal:

Bill Ayers defends Weather Underground bombings

By Jim Mackinnon | May 4, 2013

KENT: Bill Ayers says people can’t equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the April 15 twin bombings in Boston that killed three people.

Ayers, a keynote speaker at Saturday’s annual May 4 commemoration of the National Guard shootings at Kent State in 1970 that left four students dead, spoke briefly after giving his talk before an estimated 350 people on the university’s Commons.

There is no relationship at all between what Weather Underground members did and the bombings that two brothers allegedly committed on April 15 in Massachusetts, Ayers said in response to a reporter’s question. No one died in the Weather Underground bombings.

Huh? In reality, there were deaths in Weatherman bombings. If their body count was low, it was only due to their incompetence.

Lest we forget, the Weathermen were involved in the bombing of a San Francisco police station in which an officer was killed and another blinded and eight others wounded. The Weathermen also carried out the 1981 Brinks robbery in which three people were murdered. Their other bombing attempts, such as at the Pentagon and Capitol, didn’t kill anyone simply because of bad timing.

And, lest we forget, three Weathermen, including Ayers’ girlfriend, Diana Oughton, were killed when their IED filled with nails intended for soldiers at Fort Dix dance, blew up in their Greenwich Village townhouse.

“How different is the shooting in Connecticut from shooting at a hunting range?” Ayers said. “Just because they use the same thing, there’s no relationship at all.” …

Yes, trying to kill soldiers and their civilian dates is completely different from killing marathon runners with homemade bombs containing nails.

"… I’m against violence… To conflate a group of fundamentalist people [in Boston] who are nihilistic in some way with a group of people who spent their lives trying to oppose the murder of 6,000 people a week … and still the killing went on. And still the killing went on. What would you have done?” Ayers said. “There’s no equivalence [with Boston]. Property damage. That’s what we did.” …

Again, these are simply lies. Ayers tried to kill people. He just did not succeed as much as he wanted.

Ayers said his wife, Bernardine Dorhn, also a prominent former member of the Weather Underground and now a Northwestern University law professor, spoke several years ago at a Kent State May 4 commemoration…

In his talk to the crowd, Ayers mentioned that in 1970, he lost three friends in the Weather Underground, including his lover, Diana Oughton. He did not explain in his talk how they died – they were killed when nail bombs they were making in a Greenwich Village townhouse blew up.

Telling the crowd the circumstances of those deaths would have been “inappropriate,” Ayers said afterward. “Everybody here knows,” he said. Authorities said the bombs were intended to be used at a dance at the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey…

The truth is always "inappropriate" for people like Ayers.

Other speakers included Tom Hayden, 73, a 1960s antiwar activist, former head of Students for a Democratic Society, California politician, author and ex-husband of actress Jane Fonda.

“There’s no worse death than the death of forgetting,” Hayden said in his closing comments.

He’s right. We should never forget these murderers and would-be murderers.

  1. The things I want to say will get me permanently banned my Steve … but you know exactly the samer thing in your heart.

    I see absolutely know difference between Bill Ayer’s bombings or the Boston bombers. Their reasoning and motive, their cowardliness in murdering and maiming the unsuspecting, and they share the desire to have done far more bombings.

    And to think a little kindergartner was suspended for two days for pointing his pencil like a toy gun and making zapping sounds.
