  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Pennsylvania Debate – Morning Joe – 4/17/08

Posted by rightwinger on April 17, 2008

Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground.

Ayers joined the Weather Underground in 1969, but went underground with several associates after the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970 which killed three members (Ted Gold, Terry Robbins, and Diana Oughton, who was Ayers’ girlfriend at the time). All charges against him were dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct during the long search for the fugitives. In 2001, Ayers published Fugitive Days: A Memoir. Ayers’s interview with the New York Times about his book was published on September 11, 2001, and opens with his statement, “I don’t regret setting bombs, I feel we didn’t do enough.”

What is Senator Obama’s link to Bill Ayers?

  • Both Obama and Ayers were members of the board of an anti-poverty group, the Woods Fund of Chicago, between 1999 and 2002.
  • Ayers contributed $200 to Obama’s re-election fund to the Illinois State Senate in April 2001, as reported here.
  • Obama and Ayers lived within a few blocks of each other in the trendy Hyde Park section of Chicago, and moved in the same liberal-progressive circles.
  • Bill Ayers hosted an event for Sen. Obama when he was running for state senate.
