Why Did Bill Ayers Agree
to an interrogation?

American Thinker, by M. Catherine Evans

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 7/3/2014 5:46:30 AM

This past week, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, and Dinesh D’Souza gave a platform to an entity that hates America and our way of life. Seems the prospect of smokin’ out a snake like Bill Ayers was too good to pass up. Getting an exclusive one-on-one with a crazy, violent communist with a small c was quite a coup for Kelly and D’Souza...or was it? Since lying and deceit generally benefit the liar, we have to ask, ”What was in it for Bill Ayers?” A mea culpa for past crimes? Hardly. After listening to Ayers, we must conclude: once a psychopath, always a psychopath.

I watched it and wondered what he was running for. Is he going to be another 0bama "in your face" appointment soon?

He looked and sounded guilty. Why is he not in jail? Why did any university hire him or his murderous wife? Why didn´t he ever move to a Communist country? I can answer that. He could not make money. Even Communists like money. His father was a rich Communist. Why did Obama and Michelle hang with the likes of him? Because they like what he stands for.

Why? Because he craves attention and considers himself extremely clever, convincing and brilliant. He gets a huge ego boost when he takes on what he considers to be a conservative bumpkin. Maybe we´ll see more of these interviews, It could be they´re part of a radical left strategy which is meant to inflict a new kind of "property damage" on conservatives and their venues. Sort of verbal bombing attempts to destroy conservative structures,--- no brick and mortar buildings this time..
If that´s the case, he didn´t succeed. Kelly was prepared, audacious and focused, which I don´t think Ayers expected. His lies were obvious and she allowed Ayers to twist his own dagger in his flaccid 70 year old chest.

I can only hope Ayers is regretting his choice to appear on Fox. It´s not hard to imagine what he thinks of Fox viewers and he just shot them all a prolonged finger. He´ll be hearing footsteps behind him from now on, living in a Twilight Zone of his own making. Then again, creating enemies may be his reason to be.

It´s becoming very easy to spot psychopaths anymore. They are the ones that seem to get the media attention making them stand out to many as cult heroes. Good point to bring on Dinesh D´Sousa for the compare and contrast moment. Two days of Mr. Ayers was two days, too many. Go see "America" this weekend to get your mind right and pray that we can take back our country from the radicals.

There is no excuse for Ayers and his bride, Dohrn. No explanation can excuse what they have done. They are vile over-indulged rich kids who are such clichés as to be laughable. They are nothing but 60´s hippies filled with with the kind of hubris that only comes from privilege. They believed they were so cool trying to start a revolution and destroying "the man". It really is pathetic. They are nothing but punks who don´t have a grateful bone in their bodies for the country that has allowed them to live the life they enjoy.

Universities are filled with these poseurs doing their best to indoctrinate students in their warped philosophy. It´s time to shun any institution that allows these glib psychopaths a platform. Students need truth and it won´t come from the likes of Ayers or Dohrn. They are committed ideologues who love nothing more than watching a kid walk into their classroom loving this country and walk out with a chip on his/her shoulder and anti-American bias in their heart.

It´s obvious that he feels he has nothing to fear. He sees his side (Marxists) in control now and his very own protege as President of the United States. It´s his way of doing an end zone dance and spiking the ball in our faces.

Ayers is the personification of the Democrat Party. They are haters, traitors, and killers. Say it! Put a name and face on Democrats. Make Democrat voters own their paternity... the Democrat Party today is the evil spawn of all the Bill Ayers´ and Bernadine Dorns. The fight with Democrats comes down to kill or be killed.

Normal human beings have no chance to understand miscreants like Ayers. In Ayers tortured little mind he is a huge hero, a revolutionary of the first order. Proof of his excellence is he never spent any time in jail and is today a respected professor (respected by his kind anyway). The weathermen’s long list of killings were points of pride for this sociopath. That he got away with it is for even more pride.

Ayers wrote obama´s book(s). He knows him well and longs to be up there in the spotlight with him, giving America the finger and pushing the common folk off the golf course and out of restaurants. Both of these arrogant little rich boys will see justice, it´s only a matter of time.

Ayers practiced a longstanding tactic used by leftists everywhere. When confronted with his own crimes, he invariably accused the government of committing crimes of such massive scale as to make his own insignificant by comparison - and thus justified.

Eldridge Cleaver used this same tactic when on trial for rape (he was convicted), arguing that his crime was insignificant because of America´s slaughter in Vietnam and its discrimination against blacks.

This is the standard ´social justice´ defense of bad individual behavior.

Don´t forget how the weathermen´s plans for what they would do if they over threw the government. They planned on throwing a 100 million into reeducation camps so we would learn to embrace communism. Though they expected to have to murder 25 million people who failed their reeducation. Not only that, but they were going to have troops from Russia, China and Cuba occupy our country.

The answer is: who the hell cares why he agreed to the interview? In my book, giving this vermin any press face time is despicable. You´d think Kelly has bigger fish to fry and better things to do with her ratings and her platform than waste time on this hippie throwback. Hell´s not hot enough for his ilk. Now, WHERE were Kelly and her producer in 2008 before obama was elected? That interview would have been useful then, but it´s a royal waste now. So Ayers got away with a crime, or two or three; what´s the point at this point? The country is falling apart, and the geniuses at Fox decide to waste their best talent on a an irrelevant terrorist. Spare me.

People like Ayers are legends in their own minds, so of course they like media attention. I also have to wonder if he might be unhappy with Obama. No amount of damage to America will ever be enough for these narcissistic nihilists. Nor is there any limit to the gratitude they expect from those they once gave assistance too.

I will never understand why he agreed to do this. My only answer is that he is as arrogant and delusional as the Marxist Obama and probably thought this would be a great way for millions of people to see him and that some of them would agree with his sick, criminal behavior and perverse radical ideology.

The real stunner was in a later segment when Kelly interviewed Mark Thiessen and Kirsten Powers regarding the true relationship with Obama and Ayers. The link below that interview from Fox News. Powers couldn´t condemn people [like Ayers and Dohrn] as destestable people because they did some bad things. Un.freaking.believable!! Any shred of credibility she may have occasionally had is completely destroyed. It will stun you. Even Megyn Kelly is shocked by her responses.

Sorry, but I just couldn’t shake the similarity. Megyn was brilliant.

FTA: When Kelly asked Ayers if parenthood had “softened” him, he balked at the word. “Did it soften me? I don´t know what that means.”

Gotcha! We SEE you.

Remember this? “You´re watching a stage play - a banquet is in progress. The guests are enjoying an appetizer of raw oysters. The entree consists of boiled dog stuffed with rice.”

Ayers reason for going on FOX is just his way of smirking at America. The Black Hats are winning, and he wants a victory lap.

This rotten little weasel loves the limelight and wanted to go on the show to gloat over his ´accomplishments" and show he´s still relevant and a player. He talked for the same reason a death row inmate talks about his crimes. They enjoy hearing themselves ... and making others upset.

The reason MK bothered to give this jerk a platform to repeat his lies escapes me other than she likes the attention too! I also hope this wasn´t check-book journalism. How much was this scum paid to appear on her show?

#8, one of his children is Chesa Boudin, child of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert of Brinks truck robbery and murder fame. She spent 20 years in jail, Gilbert is still there.

You won´t be amazed to learn that Chesa is a radical, too, now. (His grandpa was a lawyer in this country for the Castro regime, and great-uncle was I.F. Stone).

I think Ayers agreed to the interview because he is a psychopath, like a serial killer who writes taunting letters to the police or newspapers.

Scratch a 60´s radical and you´d find a coward scared to death at the very thought of getting sent off to Nam. Couldn´t handle being shot at so they stayed at home and bombed civilians, and then they ran and hid. So how does Ayers have reason to be as arrogant as he obviously is? Perhaps because the coward got away with it all.

It took 52 posts, but BINGO! there at #52! Ayers´ entire existence since readching adulthood (well, college-age version) has been his FEAR of being shot at in Viet Nam. The entire three nights of interviews was continually peppered by his comments about Viet Nam! (And sorry, #25.... Ayers´ repeated references to ´´6,000´´ was not servicemen, but Vietnamese civilians... he belied his own cause when he said at one point, and his self-acclaimed intelligence, that it was ´´6,000 per DAY´´.... His university employer ought to be ashamed of this performance of his)

He still obsesses about a war that began half a century ago, and ended a decade+ after that, a war that he was SCARED OF.

He´s the Ultimate Coward, with capital letters.

If you can find Megyn´s third night, the debate between Ayers and D´Souza, watch that. D´Souza ROCKED IT. Ayers got more voice time, but D´Souza made his time count, and he deployed the same condescending, elite intellectualism toward Ayers that Ayers and his progressive ilk constantly use on us. Here´s your Alinsky, Ayers, right back atcha!

The change in mainstream cultural norms regarding LGBTQ people and same-sex marriage has been so dramatic, it can be hard to remember that the Republican Party’s last successful national campaign not only relied quite blatantly on homophobia, but did so relatively recently, in the presidential election of 2004. Back then, Republicans from Karl Rove on down were more than happy to embrace the über-religious members of the GOP base sometimes referred to as “Christianists.” But as the Senate races now happening in Colorado and Iowa show, in the 10 years since Bush was reelected, the relationship between Republican politicians and

On first moving from left to right on retiring from the practice of law, I was quickly disabused of the idea that the right knew what it was doing; while it was clear that I shared their values, I was completely unimpressed with the manner in which they advanced those values. There was almost a complete lack of passion on the right, coupled with the fearful manner in which they approached even the most insignificant confrontations. My attention was first almost forcefully directed to this problem by the pathetic campaign that Bill Simon ran against Gray Davis in California’s 2002

The disappearance of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham two weeks ago is the latest in a long series of girls-gone-missing cases that often end tragically. A 32-year-old, 270-pound former football player who fled to Texas has been returned to Virginia and charged with “abduction with intent to defile.” At this date, Hannah’s fate and whereabouts remain unknown. Wildly overblown claims about an epidemic of sexual assaults on American campuses are obscuring the true danger to young women, too often distracted by cellphones or iPods in public places: the ancient sex crime of abduction and murder. Despite hysterical propaganda about our

My Coffee Klatch With Rand Paul

The office of Senator Rand Paul, advocate of limited government, is in the Russell Senate Office Building — monumentally huge, forbidding, and labyrinthine to the extent that I got lost three times trying to find him. Senators and their staffers used to fit into the Capital Building, which is, you’d think, monumentally huge enough for any 100 dignitaries. But according to the Senate Historical Office website, “With the steady growth of legislative business… Congress has constantly struggled to create sufficient workspace.” Construction of the Russell Building began in 1906 during the “Progressive” Era. Until 1972 it was called simply The Senate Office

Chef Emeril Lagasse shot to fame as the host of a popular Food Network show that encouraged amateur chefs to try their own hands in the kitchen. But despite being one of the most recognizable celebrity chefs in the country, Lagasse´s outlook on his future as a restaurateur — and the restaurant industry in general — is fairly grim. "I have nowhere to go, really — other than broke," said Lagasse at a recent event promoting his upcoming TNT reality series On the Menu. "It´s becoming a very challenging industry to become a very successful average restaurateur," continued Lagasse. "I can´t

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

Big ideas sometimes play a role in political campaigns, but not in this year’s midterm elections. Republican candidates concentrate on linking their opponents to President Obama and his policies. That’s it. Democrats are understandably wary of defending Obama. They go after Republicans on minor or trumped-up issues, often in unscrupulous TV ads. This formula is working for Democrats. For them, victory in the elections would be holding Republicans to minimal gains and retaining control of the Senate. If nothing changes, they have a shot.

Republican voters are down on the sluggish GOP officials they elected, and the officeholders whine about the unreasonable people who voted for them. Republican backbenchers complain about their lame leaders, and GOP leaders grumble about their unruly followers. Right-wing pundits despair of unimaginative Republican pols, and the hard-headed pols are impatient with impractical commentators. Conservative activists loathe the GOP establishment, and the establishment is terrified and contemptuous of the base.

Is Obama Wagging the Ebola Dog?

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

Like many sports stories, this one is about fathers and sons. Before Roger Goodell was National Football League commissioner—before fans and pundits alike began calling for his ouster in the wake of the ongoing Ray Rice domestic-violence scandal; before members of Congress began sending angry letters and demanding answers—Goodell was an 11-year-old boy, watching the Nixon White House crush his dad’s political career. The year was 1970. Charles E. Goodell, then a moderate Republican senator from New York, was running for reelection. The previous summer, he had sponsored a high-profile bill that would have ended funding for the Vietnam War.

Gov. Bobby Jindal today said Americans are clamoring for a “hostile takeover” of Washington, D.C. While speaking at The Heritage Foundation to a group of reporters about his new energy plan, the Louisiana governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate said voters are calling on Republicans to offer “real ideas” and “real solutions” in Washington. “We need to understand people are hungry for big change,” he said. “They’re not looking for tinkering; they’re looking for a hostile takeover of D.C.” That means not just talking about repealing Obamacare, Jindal continued, but taking measures to repeal and replace it.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said.

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
