You have to hand it to Bill Ayers, the 1960s and 70s Weather Underground bomb maker and America’s first home-grown terrorist, who helped launch Barack Obama’s political career. He sure has staying power.
Today, at age 75, he is still active as ever from his Hyde Park, Chicago, spider hole, at some level helping organize and direct all the chaos going on in progressive American city streets to attack and dismantle his despised “system of white supremacy” – capitalism and the white middle class. At a rally of the socialist Chicago Teacher’s Union during the strike that he helped organize last year, he had on a sweatshirt that read: “More Love, Less Capitalism.”
Professor Ayers has had help along the way, of course, from his star pupil and our former Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama, as well as from Barack’s godfather George Soros – who hates America just as much as Ayers does – who are working from their gilded command centers in Georgetown, D.C. (Barack), and Katonah, New York (George).
Not only has Ayers kept his deep revolutionary hatred of white America alive and burning in his dark soul for over fifty years. As much as anyone – with the possible exception of Barack and George – he has worked to destroy race relations in America, teaching people of color that all their ills are due to the system of white supremacy, while at the same time stirring fear among whites of black and brown people.
They are Marxist thinkers (Bill calls himself a communist with a small c) who want to divide the country along racial and economic lines, while working to dismantle capitalism and take down the white middle class, in their glorious globalist/communist/progressive revolution, in order to foment their revolution and create a New World Order with open borders, where everyone is equal and poor, directed of course by wise men like themselves. But first they must recapture the White House.
There is no bridging the racial divide by sitting down at the table of brotherhood for Bill Ayers, like there was for Martin Luther King. Ayers is filled with bone-deep hatred for the system of white supremacy – capitalism and its white middle class, the system that raised him in upper middle class comfort, with a father who was an influential businessman and civic leader, a close friend of Mayor Richard J. Daley, Bill’s nemesis in 1968.
It is a Marxian revolution that Ayers has been consumed by for fifty years. As Marx wrote: “In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people to stir up the bassist passions. Our mission is to destroy, not to edify.”
Ayers is the guiding devil spirit behind the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement that has suddenly re-emerged in the recent chaos, becoming almost a de facto political party in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death at the knee of a white Minneapolis cop May 25th.
Ayers is also somewhere behind the mostly-white, college age ANTIFA punks and thugs, which like BLM is funded by billionaire Soros and his Open Society Foundation, with many of them kept on Soros retainer awaiting orders to put on their helmets and start smashing windows and torch cop cars.
Both BLM and ANTIFA are molded in the spitting images of Ayers cultish, violent Weather Underground movement of the late 1960s and 1970s, which broke away from the Students for a Democratic Society in 1969 because SDS wasn’t violent enough. The relatively small Weather Underground, led by Ayers and his girlfriend-now-wife Bernadine Dohrn, along with graduates of elite colleges, went on a rampage of bombings in the 1970s that was said to total 70 over a ten-year span, setting off explosives at government buildings, police stations, even the home of a judge who was hearing a trial of Black Panthers.
Dohrn set off a bomb at a San Francisco police station that killed a cop. Bill’s former girlfriend Diana Oughton was killed assembling a nail-bomb marked for an officer’s dance in May, 1970. She was identified by a fingertip found at the scene of the explosion, which leveled a Greenwich Village townhouse that had enough explosives to level the whole block.
Always an obnoxious, narcissistic little shit, Ayers in one of his more memorable quotes, said: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.”
He bombed a statue of Chicago policemen that commemorated the Haymarket Riot in 1886, where anarchists threw bombs at a labor demonstration in 1886 which killed seven policemen and four civilians. When the city moved the statue to another location, Ayers bombed that one, too.
Ayers was arrested in August, 1968 during the Democratic Convention in Chicago, when Mayor Richard J. Daley’s blue helmeted police cracked heads of SDS demonstrators in Grant Park. A year later, in October, 1969, the Weather Underground held a four day “Days of Rage” in Chicago, running up and down Michigan Avenue and in the Loop, breaking windows of businesses and smashing cop cars, almost a carbon copy of the destruction in a dozen cities led by Ayers’ and Soros’ BLM and Antifa that followed George Floyd’s demise.
In 1970, the two revolutionary lovers had drafted a Weather Underground Manifesto, which stated: “the goal [of revolution] is the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism.”
It would be the lovely Bernadine who added: “The best thing that we can be doing for ourselves, as well as for the [Black] Panthers and the revolutionary black liberation struggle, is to build a fucking white revolutionary movement.”
They would never apologize or express remorse for all the bomb making and terror they unleashed. Ayers would say only in 2008 that he sometimes “wished we had done more.”
Even when they came up from hiding in the 1980s to Hyde Park, Chicago, to raise a family, Ayers and Dohrn never lost their revolutionary fire. Bill by then had a doctorate in Education from Columbia U., the Marxist Ivy League institution, and dove right into the educational system, with help from his influential father, Thomas, former chairman of Commonwealth Edison and good pal of Richard J. Daley.
The ex-bomb maker turned professor would say: “Education is the motor force of revolution,” and set out to change the American education system by getting into the public school curriculum the teaching of “social justice,” which sounded noble enough to administrators, but which was another weapon to dismantle the system of white supremacy, teaching that the United States is an unjust, racist, oppressive society, incorporating into schools such concepts as “Dismantling White Privilege and Supporting Anti-Racist Education in our Classrooms and Schools,” “Talking about Religious Oppression and Christian Privilege,” and “Creating Change Agents Who Teach for Social Justice.”
He also poured his energy into ending mass incarceration, which he called the “New Jim Crow,” as most of the prisoners in jails, especially in Chicago, were black. He wrote a book, “A Kind and Just Parent,” about the juvenile justice system, with the title taken from Jane Addams, the famous Chicago social worker, who created the system 100 years ago under a socialist model to rehabilitate juvenile offenders. Now, in the vast welfare state of black Chicago, the concept of the government as a parent to fatherless black males with lethal weapons is a stretch. But not to Ayers.
Then in the late 1980s, of course, he and Bernadine took under their wings a young, bi-racial man in search of a father named Barack Obama. They schooled him in their Marxist ideology – though he had already had a strong foundation from his first mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, in Hawaii – and helped him get into Harvard Law School, with Bill’s wealthy parents even paying the tuition. Bill built his resume by getting him on liberal foundation boards, funding left wing, often radical causes including Bill’s “social justice” theories, and launched Barack’s political career from their Hyde Park home in 1995.
In 2008, when Barack became president, he returned the favors by helping Ayers get elected vice president for curriculum of the American Education Research Association, the nation’s largest organization of education professors, to help advance his “social justice” curriculum throughout the nation’s public schools and colleges.
And it’s worked. The recent marches and demonstrations under the ruse of protesting George Floyd’s death, were loaded with young, college age white kids wearing Black Lives Matter t-shirts and carrying signs that read “No Justice, No Peace,” mingling in with BLM and Antifa thugs. Ayers was right, education is the motor force of revolution.
Even with the violence breaking windows of businesses and trashing police cars – just like Ayers’ Weather Underground with its Day’s of Rage – the protestors and looters knew they would not be arrested or charged, because they were in cities with State’s Attorney’s helped into office by Soros, and knew they would be let go. Even in San Francisco, where Ayer’s adopted son Chesa Boudin was elected District Attorney last year, vowing to end mass incarceration and not prosecute all the homeless in the city who leave needles and feces everywhere, which has killed the city’s once-thriving tourist business.
Chesa, by the way, is the son of fellow Weather Underground comrades Cathy Boudin and David Gilbert, who were sent to jail, Gilbert for life, for their roles in a Brink’s armed robbery in Nyak, New York in 1982, alongside members of the Black Liberation Army that left two policemen and a security guard dead.
Ayers also was active in Chicago’s black community from the 1980s on, working with his and Barack’s friend, Marxist white Catholic Priest Michael Pfleger, preaching in the ghettos that all the violence and misery were caused white supremacy.
This was a much easier sell than blaming the poverty of the welfare system that destroyed the black family and produced thousands of enraged, fatherless black children, as well as the unending onslaught of physical and sexual abuse of women and children. Besides, that wasn’t part of Bill’s revolutionary vision.
Barack helped the narrative along when he was president, sending his Justice Department to Chicago to officially designate the Chicago police a “racist organization” – a first such designation in the nation – which helped further turn the black community against the police as the enemy, as well as accelerate civil rights lawsuits against the city and police, with multi-million dollar settlements paid from taxpayer funds in a bankrupted city, a novel redistribution of wealth.
Now, in the aftermath of Floyd, with calls to defund the police around the country, U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar from Minneapolis, a closet Marxist and disciple of Barack’s, spoke as if from the Ayers’ playbook, telling television cameras: “We can’t stop at criminal justice reform, or policing reform, for that matter. We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system. We are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in healthcare, in employment, in the air we breathe.”
Now, with Barack’s “progressive” mayors and governors having shut down commerce in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland, among others, while protestors including BLM and Antifa continue to gather night after night to roam the business districts looking for something to break or burn or throw at police, or a statue of some white guy to tear down, the police are on the defensive, knowing the mayors or state’s attorney’s won’t back them up.
With all the angry demonstrations, Ayers is like a pig in shit. It’s just like 1968 all over again, going up against fascist Boss Daley. Only this time Bill is running the show, not having to worry about a nightstick to the head, or getting tossed into a police lockup.
Just like back in ’68, it’s a presidential election year, and Ayers and his comrades are trying to oust the capitalist pig Trump. Maybe if they keep the fear levels high on the streets, people will vote Democratic just to end the chaos.
And maybe, if Barack and his Progressives win back the White House, Bill will get named Secretary of Education. If only his industrialist father were there to see it.
