Bill Ayers Plans on "Occupying Everything", Announces Two New Books

April 25, 2012 at 9:59 pm (Bill Ayers, Comics Alliance, Domestic, Knox College, Occupy Wall Street, Radical, Stumptown Comics Festival, Terrorist)

Subtlety isn’t exactly a strong point for unrepentant terrorist and current Occupy Wall Street instructor, Bill Ayers.  Ayers will have his graphic novel adaptation, To Teach: The Journey, in Comics, featured at the Portland Stumptown Comics Festival.  Seriously.
In an interview for AOL’s Comic Alliance, Ayers spells out his intentions over the following year – intentions that only the well-trained eye can interpret as a veiled reference to the Occupy movement.

Via Comics Alliance:

CA: What are you working on this year? 

BA: I’m working over-time this year on occupying this and occupying that, occupying the future and occupying my imagination, occupying everything in and out of sight.

Did you catch that?  Read through it again, and you might just notice the word ‘occupying’ showing up one or two or five times.

And occupy he has.

A few weeks ago, Ayers paid a visit to the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City and waxed poetic about the end of American capitalism, before ranting about “uniformed military” being allowed to board planes before everyone else.

Ayers also spoke to a group of students at Knox College last Thursday, questioning why he is referred to as a ‘former activist’, and drawing parallels between anti-slavery, universal suffrage movements and Occupy Wall Street movements”.


Last month, some of Ayers’ best friends and most accomplished domestic terrorist partners were in upstate New York for a meeting called, The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street.  


With this recent spate of activity, it would appear the two movements are merging causes in anticipation of the Occupiers becoming “more radical“.  Their words, not mine.


In the Comics Alliance interview, Ayers continues…

Revolution is still possible, democracy and socialism, possible, but barbarism is possible as well.  I’m trying to live leaning forward, a pessimist of the head but an optimist of the heart.  I find the tools everywhere-humor and art, comics and poetry, protest and spectacle, the quiet, patient intervention and the angry and urgent thrust-but the rhythm of activism remains the same: we open our eyes and look unblinkingly at the world as we find it; we are astonished by the beauty and the suffering all around us; we recognize that right next to the world as such is a world that could be or should be; we dive into the wreckage and swim as hard as we can toward a distant and indistinct shore; we doubt that our efforts make enough difference, and so we rethink, recalibrate, look again, and dive in once more.  If we never doubt we get lost in self-righteousness and political narcissism-been there. If we only doubt we vanish into cynicism and despair.  Awake/Act/Doubt!  Repeat for a lifetime.

When referring to barbarism and ‘repeating for a lifetime’, one has to wonder if Ayers has these particular parts of his activist past in mind:

Ayers took part in a series of bombings in the 1970s that killed three activists.  The intent was much worse however, as the bombings were designed to kill army officers in New Jersey – It accidentally exploded in a New York townhouse.
Lest we forget that in regards to the day he successfully bombed the Pentagon, Ayers said, “Everything was absolutely ideal. … The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.”
And of course, there is William’s mantra to “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”
More famously, in an article that appeared in the New York Times on September 11th, 2001, Ayers was quoted as saying that he did not regret setting bombs and, “I feel we didn’t do enough.”

At the end of the interview, Ayers also announced two new book projects in the works:

Oh, and I’ve got two new books on the way: Palling Around: Talking with the Tea Party, and What If? Releasing the Radical Imagination.

Ayers radical imagination has yet to be unleashed?  Imagine how much worse it can get.

Why Did Domestic Terrorists Meet With Occupy Albany?

April 3, 2012 at 4:39 pm (Bill Ayers, Brinks Robbery, Naomi Jaffe, New York, Occupy Albany, Occupy Wall Street, San Francisco, Sanctuary For Independent Media, Troy, Weather Underground)

The statement above could certainly be opened up to debate, but a recent gathering titled, The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street, along with a detailed report of the meeting, should certainly raise eyebrows.  The meeting, held right in the heart of Troy, New York, was being billed as a book event to celebrate U.S. “political prisoner” David Gilbert’s new memoir, Love and Struggle.

But, as revealed in a newly released video, the forum featured characters that were anything but mundane, the list reading like a veritable who’s-who of former Weather Underground activists.  Not simply low-level members, but some of the more notorious radicals in the movement, men and women with ties to the infamous Bill Ayers, individuals with ties to bombing schemes on military servicemen, and of course, convicted cop-killers.
In the video, one of the hosts of the event, Naomi Jaffe, is seen praising Kathy Boudin, a close Ayers associate, who was involved in a bomb plot gone wrong in which three Weather Underground members were killed when an explosive device they had designed to kill military personnel, prematurely detonated.  She was also convicted of felony robbery and murder for her role in the Brinks Robbery of 1981, a plot which resulted in the murder of a security guard and two police officers.
Jaffe continues to speak of the Weather Underground’s past, sharing knowledge of the group’s “resistance to an unjust system,” likening it to the “same injustices that we are seeing the Occupy movement reacting to resisting today.”  She jokes about the murderous Brinks event as being one of several necessary “expropriations”, necessary because “revolutionary work is not funded by government”.  Her radical past infused with today’s radical movement could prove quite dangerous.  Jaffe is very active in the Occupy Albany protests, and routinely downplays violence in the name of stopping oppression, and repeatedly downplays her own violent past.
The report can be read here: 
Highlights include:
·        The meeting was designed to discuss common struggles between the Weather Underground and Occupy Wall Street, and in particular, the shared vision between David Gilbert, another member serving jail time for his role in the Brinks murders, and the Occupy Wall Street movement. 
·         In attendance or serving on the panel were five major players in the domestic terrorism group – Naomi Jaffe, Jeff Jones, Eleanor Stein, Suzanne Ross, and Kathy Boudin.
·         All of the above named have been involved in the more radical elements of the group, including assaults on police officers, bomb plots, and murders.
·         All had been involved with the notorious Bill Ayers, some of which lived in a San Francisco ‘bomb factory’ that several entities have claimed was used in the San Francisco police station bombing that killed Officer Brian McDonnell.
·         A former Weather Underground member turned FBI informant, makes several interesting observations about the meeting, including his assertion that the group hasn’t “changed the color of any of their stripes even after all of these years.”  He also adds, “It makes me sick to watch and listen to this kind of BS, especially when I realize that 100 years ago, or less, these people would all be in prison or shot as traitors.”
Is this really a group that the Occupy movement wants to be associated with?  Are they following through with their threat to become more radical?

Only they know for sure…

Video: Obama Allies Hid Video of Him Embracing Yet Another Radical

March 8, 2012 at 8:56 am (Andrew Breitbart, Bill Ayers, Charles Ogletree, Derrick Bell, Harvard, Jeremiah Wright)

The bigger story here isn’t that Obama is shown embracing a radical professor.  We know that the President associates himself with some of the more extreme members of society – i.e. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, etc.

The real news here is the flat-out admission by his peers that they intentionally withheld the video so as not to damage Obama’s election prospects in 2008.  Further, the video could easily have been obtained and placed in proper context by any self-respecting member of the media – if they wanted to.

Via Breitbart:

. . . Barack Obama was as close or closer to Derrick Bell than he ever was to Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn’t merely sit in the pews — or not — for Derrick Bell. He didn’t just hang out with Derrick Bell for prayers. He said:
“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”
If we did, here’s what we’d be opening our hearts and minds to. This is a close associate of Jeremiah Wright, a man who was quoted by Jeremiah Wright regularly. This is a man who posited that the civil rights movement was too moderate because it accepted the status quo, and believed that the entire legal and constitutional system had to be transformed in radical fashion. This is a man so extreme that, as we’ve reported, he wrote a story in 1993 in which he posited that white Americans would sell black Americans into slavery to aliens to relieve the national debt, and that Jews would go along with it.

Remember the words of his friend and ally, Professor Charles Ogletree:

 ‘Of course, we hid this during the 2008 election… I don’t care if they find it now.’

Of course we hid who Obama really was, and we knew the media wouldn’t do a damn thing about it.

Occupy Wall Street Now Promoting the Weather Underground

February 8, 2012 at 12:31 pm (Albany Social Justice Center, Bill Ayers, Bombings, David Gilbert, Occupy Albany, Occupy Wall Street, Radical, Sanctuary For Independent Media, Terrorist, Weather Underground)

Occupy Albany has announced an event in March called, The Weather Underground Meets Occupy Wall Street.  The event will be held March 3rd, and is co-sponsored by The Sanctuary For Independent Media and the Albany Social Justice Center.  It is described as, “A book event and multi-generational dialog to celebrate U.S. political prisoner David Gilbert’s new memoir, “Love and Struggle.”

Gilbert is currently serving time in the Auburn Correctional Facility and is described as “an American radical leftist organizer and activist.”  He was imprisoned for his role in the Brinks Robbery of 1981, a botched effort that led to the murder of four people, including a security guard and two police officers.

Interestingly, Gilbert sounds strikingly similar to the Occupy protesters of today when he describes his actions during the robbery.  In an interview in 1985, he described the scene as such:

It was an attempted expropriation. That means taking money from those who amassed wealth by exploiting the people and using that money to finance the resistance.”

Justifying the killing of innocent people, and sugarcoating armed robbery by calling it ‘expropriation’.  How Occupy of him.

And now according to their Facebook posting, and in support of Gilbert’s efforts, Occupy Albany will be participating in the so-called ‘book event’.  Participants are also shilling for his new book.

The full description of events reads (emphasis mine):
David Gilbert’s new book, “Love and Struggle: My Life in SDS, the Weather Underground, and Beyond,” sparks a multi-generational dialogue about what social justice movements can learn from each other. Currently serving a life sentence for his participation in an armed action with a group of Black revolutionaries, Gilbert writes about the lessons learned in fifty years of a radical political life. A panel of today’s young activists will talk with ’60s revolutionaries about their common struggles, grounded by critical exchange and self-reflection.

So the Occupy movement is getting together to discuss common struggles with ’60s revolutionaries from the Weather Underground.  Problem being, the Weather Underground, you may have heard, were not revolutionaries – they were terrorists.  This is what the Occupy Wall Street movement is coming together for, to celebrate terrorist acts that they see parallels in?

One individual who has also heaped praise on Gilbert’s new book is Bill Ayers, former member of the Weather Underground, man who helped launch the first campaign of our current President, and unrepentant terrorist.  Ayers took part in a series of bombings in the 1970s that killed three activists.  The intent was much worse however, as the bombings were designed to kill army officers in New Jersey – It accidentally exploded in a New York townhouse. 


Lest we forget that in regards to the day he successfully bombed the Pentagon, Ayers said, “Everything was absolutely ideal. … The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.” 


And of course, there is William’s mantra to “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”

More famously, in an article that appeared in the New York Times on September 11th, 2001, Ayers was quoted as saying that he did not regret setting bombs and, “I feel we didn’t do enough.”

Of course, none of this comes as much of a surprise.  A few weeks ago, Occupy Albany participants were actively wondering why they hadn’t begun emulating clashes in Syria, in which over 35 people had been killed amidst reports of ‘blood being shed.’

Is this really where the Occupy Wall Street movement is headed?  Is this an element they long to be associated with?  

Sympathizing with known murderers and terrorists because they share ‘common struggles’ is a scary, scary sign.
