An FBI informant's response to Bill Ayers' rewriting of history got the cold shoulder — but you can read it here.

December 23, 2008 - by Bob Owens

Ayers would like to claim he participated in non-violent protests. But he omits the fact he helped organize and participated in the 1969 “Days of Rage,” which left innocents and police officers hospitalized and one man permanently crippled, a maiming his fellow Weathermen mocked with the crude lyrics of “Lay Elrod Lay.” One of the participants in the violence noted that the thugs armed themselves with “steel pipes and slingshots, chains, clubs, mace, and rolls of pennies to add weight to a punch.” The participant quoted was Bill Ayers describing the event he helped create in his own book, Fugitive Days.

================================================

The link has the whole article. Very good read. Seems like the media might have been doing a bit of "glossing over" of the facts concerning Ayers and Obama.

It's hard to form an opinion about Obama just listening to his own words. Though it may not be a pretty picture, I think we need to pay close attention to who Obama has surrounded himself with in his educational and political career.

I will be SO GLAD when the New York Times finally tanks (fails, goes ass up, sinks, dies, disintegrates.........not a one line post).

I don't think there are any new relivations in that article. Ayers was not a good person, but that has to do with politics in the USA in what way?

I really don't mind a media showing bias if they objectively show both sides of an issue or race. It's when they ignore one side in favor of the other that they become nothing but shills, imo.

The NYT has been a Democrat shill for years now.

What it hasto do with US politics is that Ayers helped Obama get his start in politics. Do you think for one minute that he would have worked sohard for Obama if Obama didn't meet the "Fellow Traveler" atributes of Ayers political bent? Do you think Ayers didn't vet Obama about his beliefs in the Socialist venue Ayers so proudly displays in all of his writings and speaches? It matters a great deal to many of us just who our POTUS has as friends and confidantes. Any other person who fills that seat hasbeen taken to task over illicit friendships and so should Obama. Ayers is an anchor around his neck and it will cause him alot more grief as the every day US citizen sees his world "Change " with loss of their rights and their Constitution.
Should we end up with a Con-Con and Ayers is someone that is listened to by the Convention delegates by way of Obama, we will all see in vivid color just what the PTB have in store for us all!

i guess actively promoting the war in Iraq in lockstep with bush, as the NY TIMES did, was a democratic idea.

I am trying to understand the issue, and maybe ive got it wrong. The weathermen were protesting the murder and rape of vietnam, right? Where we slaughtered between 2-4 million people? And they are criticized why? Because they injured a few americans, in an attempt to bring an end to the slaughter of 2-4 million people? Im sorry, but the "violence is not an option" slogan seems pretty silly when confronted with a military that goes about using violence whenever it likes...and thats not even including the 750000 laosians and 500000 cambodians we killed at the same time. Indeed, i would go so far to say that when murder is being done on such a massive scale and with our tax dollars, violence is the ONLY option, and that all americans that allow this murder to be done in their name, by a government they supposedly participate in, should be ashamed for not doing everything in their power, yes, even to threatening those in charge with punishment or death.
