Ayers - Now the media is interested
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, November 13, 2008

For those that care, apparently Good Morning America plans to extend Bill Ayers 15 minutes of fame by giving him some air time tomorrow to tell us all what a wonderful sweet guy he really is.

I'll bet he'll come off more as Camille Paglia described him when giving her impression of Ayers in a documentary about the Weather Underground:
Ayers comes off in the film as a vapid, slightly dopey, chronic juvenile with stunted powers of ethical reasoning.
Ummm - sounds pretty spot on to me. My guess is Ayers will only reinforce that assessment. Think I'll skip GMA tomorrow. You might want to read Paglia's discussion about how badly the media preformed on the Ayers question as well. And, as I noted in a previous post about Paglia, she's a Palin fan. She further excoriates the media and the Democrats (left) for the hit job they did on "the Sarah".

Maybe next they can air a documentary on "What a Misunderstood Man Osama bin Laden Is." A five part series?

Then again, they could air it on MSDNC. They spend most of their time airing old crap about prisons and credit card ripoffs, so this kind of thing is right up their alley.

Have you checked out some the comments on that link? It’s a Bill Ayers love fest. One comment claimed the WU was heroic and should be celebrated. It’s true moonbattery.

The Paglia article is great. The Pag Hag at her maverick best. I remember the front-page, post-explosion photo of Dustin Hoffman she mentions. He looked semi-shell-shocked, as if he had just escaped from the Nazi dentist in MARATHON MAN.

I netflixed that documentary last week and, like Paglia, I’d say watch out for Dorhn. She’s a lot scarier than Ayers. The whole bunch is scarier than Ayers except for the three that splattered Hoffman.

There was an interesting article in Mational Review which stated that all the hoopla about Obama hanging out with a former terrorist was diverting folks from the important point, which is that Obama seems to have a predilection for revolutionary idealogy and its practitioners.

So hoopla about him hanging out with terroists diverts from the point.....that he likes to hang with terrorists?

????

Look, the word got out that Obama loves the America haters (probably is one himself) and the voting public didn’t care

Many were so busy hating Bush they didn’t care, others were busy hating straights, and a bunch were busy hating white America, and conservative America.

The won’t admit to hating anyone but Bush though.

Listen. Shut up! Bill Ayers may have been considered a radical but he was standing up for a purpose because the government, once again, screwed up. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. I find it hard to believe some idiot who thinks they knew everything that went on with Ayers and decides to write a little story about how he is going on Goog Morning America tomorrow when you in fact do not appear to know anything about Ayers. And for the record, this article is media you dumb ass. Grow up and stop moaning about issues you don’t even care about. You got this information from other people who are just as moronic as you are.

At least Bill had the courage to do something about what he, and the government (who was too coward to admit it), knew was wrong.

Yeah, Former Weatherman - might as well have titled himself
"Rightful King of Scotland".
The probability of either being true is about nil.
At least Bill had the courage to do something about what he, and the government (who was too coward to admit it), knew was wrong.
Meanwhile Jackass Weatherman - we have a system of government established that precludes the necessity to blow sh!t up in order to change things.
If that isn’t obvious to you, consider blacks and whites in separate but equal pre ’64 to ’black’ President of the United States in 2008.
I suggest you pull your head out of your posterior, wipe the sh!t out of your eyes and ears, and pay attention.

Ayers solved NOTHING by blowing things up. Fixed NOTHING by blowing things up.
Changed NOTHING by blowing things up. While he was doing that, decent people were using the mechanism’s Ayers would have happily destroyed to actually change things. I notice the system he was trying to blow up, he embraces today.

Courage? The punk set off bombs. That takes no courage and it takes no balls. Any cowardly punk can do it. In fact it’s the preferred method of cowards. Bill Ayers is the Eric Rudolph of the left. He’s like Tim McVeigh. They’re birds of a feather. They’re all cowardly punks.

So don’t you or your cretinous buddy Ayers ever try to claim what the WU did took courage. In fact, you and your ilk give cowardice a bad name.

Of course 1960s terrorism is irrelevant to most of the voting public today, and labeling people "socialist" when the US "capitalist" system is collapsing doesn’t sting either. The problem with the right is that they don’t realize that the standard attacks on the left are obsolete, 20th century attacks that are now yawned at. And, of course, since Obama and Ayres were working on education projects through a fund sponsored by a Conservative Republican, trying to tie Obama to what Ayres did half a century earlier was just silly. The more conservatives believe stuff like Rev. Wright, Ayres, or calling Obama the "redistributor" can possibly stick, the more they show that they haven’t recognized that this is not the country it was 20 years ago, and that kind of politics won’t work any more. The times HAVE changed!

Ayers was a typical bourgeois. Rich scion of a powerful family, self hatred, the moral compass of a swamp rat. As Paglia described him he was a dopey, repugnant piece of garbage.

Dohrn was the really dangerous one, was Ayers was the pu$$y whipped loser following her skirts.

Courage had nothing to do with it. They were drunk on murder, in short sociopaths.

Anyway, you dense righties need to remember that no one cares about anything a Democrat does that’s wrong unless it involves sex, and maybe not even then. Terrorist associates? Marxist preachers? No one cares, because our colleagues in the media make it one of their first priorities to ensure that the public never gets the whole story, and then they further ensure that anyone else who tries to raise the point is branded as an extremist and made to suffer more than the terrorist or Marxist preacher, who are more likely to get a glowing whitewash in the New York Times.

But of course, if a Republican’s spouse’s cousin’s dentist is a member of a fringe political party, or maybe even just got too many traffic tickets, then that’s perfectly fair game for our colleagues in the media to trumpet to the world. After all, they’re Republicans. By the holy principles of post-modernism, they’re wrong just by existing.

And there’s nothing you thick righties can do about any of this. Trying to depend on the media to even pretend to be objective won’t work any more. The times HAVE changed!

In other words, Scott is saying ’the truth really doesn’t matter, so get over it’.

Lol, assertion after assertion that things have "changed", without even an attempt at logical support for the idea that any such change is for the better. Reason is obsolete, only getting their way matters.

Why are these guys like Ayers always self-loathing children of "privilege"? Is anyone on the Left not motivated by deep shame?

This is the end result and toxic affect of white guilt.

It was a tought choice; plug his blog or flaunt his academic credentials. This way he can do both without appearing to be too flagrant.

Difficult to see inside anyone’s soul, but I’d say at least a few of them are motivated by pure lust for power.

"...but I’d say at least a few of them are motivated by pure lust for power"

But only so that they can do good and serve their fellow man, as opposed to the right-wing conservatives who crave power in order to enrich themselves and tell other people how to live.

Glad to know the Left doesn’t want to tell people how to live.

In Tim’s world, if the jackboot on the back of your neck is worn by someone who wants to "do good," that should make you feel better. As, apparently, it does him.
