Sarah Palin is being criticized for attacking Barack Obama about his relationship with domestic terrorist William Ayers at a McCain rally in Arizona this past Saturday.
Obama’s connection with Ayers should be questioned.
The connection has recently been written about in The New York Times.
Who is Ayers? He is a former leading 1960s militant and a former member of the Weathermen, an American radical left organization founded in 1969. The group organized a riot in Chicago in 1969 and bombed buildings in the 1970s. In other words, Ayers is a former domestic terrorist who use to be on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list. On May 19, 1972, Ho Chi Minh’s birthday, The Weather Underground placed a bomb in the women’s bathroom in the Air Force wing of The Pentagon. The damage caused flooding that devastated vital classified information on computer tapes.
Ayer was the founder of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, or CAC, which bills itself as a school reform organization. Ayers also served as co-chairman of the Chicago School Reform Collaborative, one of the two operational arms of the CAC, from its formation in 1995 until 2000. In 1995, Obama was appointed as the CAC’s first chairman.
Ayers hosted a “meet-and-greet” fundraiser for Obama at his home in the Hyde Park section of Chicago, where Ayers and the Obamas lived. It was at this meeting that then State Senator Alice Palmer introduced Barack Obama as her chosen candidate for the 1996 Democratic primary.
The CAC first came under close scrutiny during the 2008 Democratic Primary presidential primaries, when, during a debate with Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia, Barack Obama was asked by George Stephanopoulos to explain his relation with William Ayers, with whom he served on the board of CAC from 1995-2002 and traded board chairmanship. Obama described Ayers as being:
“This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.”
Obama has stated that he was only 8-years-old when these events occurred and he did not know of Ayers past when he worked with him in Chicago. Does this sound familiar? When Obama was constantly questioned about his connection to Rev. Wright, Obama consistently stated he was not aware Wright was saying those things. Good grief!
Have you seen the latest news? Top Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said the Palestine terrorist group supports Obama’s foreign policy vision.
During an interview on WABC radio, Yousef stated:
“We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance,” Yousef said in response to a question about the group’s willingness to meet with either of the Democratic presidential candidates.”
Please people, look closely at Obama. Review his relationships with Rev. Wright and William Ayers. Wake up and see that current terrorists are ecstatic Obama is winning. If John McCain had past connections with similar people, the Obama campaign would be all over McCain and would not let up. I want someone to tell me why this is okay. Why should I not be worried about Barack Obama?
