The original story begins here – Editor
The AP is calling Sarah Palin a racist for bringing up the long term relationship that Obama had with a host of radicals who are not nice people at all. The king of these radicals is William Ayers, who set bombs and killed people and got away with it in the 60′s and 70′s. He did it becayse he is a Marxist and hates American freedom and makes no bones about it. On September 11th 2001 Ayres told the NY Times that he wished ha had bombed more.
Obama’s political career was started in Ayres living room at a meet the candidate meeting where Ayres used his connections among prominent leftists to get Obama’s career going. You don’t do that for someone who doesn’t share your belief system. Ayres hired Obama for his position on the Woods Foundation and the Chicacgo Annenberg Challenge where they routed charity money to political groups and political activism.
While some may say that Ayres hiring Obama to work on the Woods Foundation Board to hand out money is no big deal, but Ayres chose Obama to hand out the $50 million Ayres was given from the Annenberg Foundation to help out poverty striken schools. The money went to radical groups and training for teachers in how to radicalize their students. The fact that Ayres picked Obama to hand out that money for that purpose is significant. What does this mean about what about Obama would do with our education tax dollars and education policy? So while the NYT & the AP lie and say that Obama and Ayres just passed each other occasionally when the truth is that See Links HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
I am not making this up folks – just stop and read HERE at politifact.com and then come back. Hillary said all of these same things about Obama because they are a part of the public record. Politifact.com says that all of this is accurate.
So in 2001 when Ayers was obama’s boss at woods for several years he wrote his book bragging about the bombings and said he didn’t do enough.. but maybe this picture and article from Chicago Magazine will do it for you.
“Barack Obama was much older than 8 when William Ayers was photographed stepping on a US flag in 2001, for an article in which Ayers said he had “No Regrets” for his violent actions in the Weather Underground.” – LGF
The article in Chicago Magazine is titled “No Regrets”
So, would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? ”I don’t want to discount the possibility,” he said.
When Obama started making good money as his political career took off convicted felon Tony Rezco helped him obtain a house just a short walk from the home of Ayers and Louis Farrakhan. We published an article in March pointing out the numerous radicals and nut cases that Obama has chosen to associate himself with. This included Father Pfleger whose hateful rhetoric, anti-American rhetoric and proud association with Louis Farrakhan is well known. Obama used his influence to send a $225,000 grant to Pfleger and Pfleger contributed to Obama’s campaign. Obama said in his books that Rev Wright and Pfleger were his spiritual advisors for 20 years. Of course Pfleger got thrown under the bus by Obama too.
But words just don’t convey the full meaning of the truth – so here we have two video’s of Father Pfleger and one defends Louis Farrakhan
This is from Rev. Wrights DVD’s of sermons from his church that Barack Obama attended for 20 years and claims he never saw Rev. Wright speak like this and had no idea Wright had such views…. Do you believe that for a minute?
The list goes on:
“Michael Klonsky, whose disgust for mainstream politics led him to launch a new, Maoist Communist Party in the 1970s, today supports Barack Obama so enthusiastically that until recently he was blogging on the Illinois senator’s campaign website.” Michael Rudd, Carl Davidson, Tom Heyden, and Mark Rudd are all professed Maoists, collaborated with Ayres in the 1970′s and now run “Progressives for Obama”.
MINI UPDATE: Speaking of Mark Rudd he is in this video & Obama Knew Ayres when he did this interview with Connie Chung in 1998 and after all this Obama didn’t know??
This isn’t the occasional bad judgement or coincidence, these were ongoing relationships with a list of people who hate the traditional American way of life. It speaks a great deal that these are the kinds of people that Obama feels comfortable with, and that he would throw them under the bus when politically convenient.
The AP and the NYT don’t want you to know this or Obama’s long history with ACORN..

UPDATE: Ayres and Obama shared the stage in 1997 and Michelle Obama heaped on the praise.
Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent seven years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher at the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher at the Detention Center.
The juvenile justice system was founded by Chicago reformer Jane Addams, who advocated the establishment of a separate court system for children which would act like a “kind and just parent” for children in crisis.
One hundred years later, the system is “overcrowded, under-funded, over-centralized and racist,” Ayers said.
Michelle Obama, Associate Dean of Student Services and Director of the University Community Service Center, hopes bringing issues like this to campus will open a dialogue between members of the University community and the broader community.
“Students and faculty explore these issues in the classroom, but it is an internal conversation,” Obama said. “We know that issues like juvenile justice impact the city of Chicago, this nation and — directly or indirectly — this campus. This panel gives students a chance to hear about the juvenile justice system not only on a theoretical level, but from the people who have experienced it.”
UPDATE II: Obama Campaign – We were Together But I Didn’t Know His Past
JIM ACOSTA: Now a college professor in Chicago, Ayers and Obama served together several years on a nonprofit board. And in 1995 Ayers hosted a coffee for Obama when the young community organizer was making his first run for the State Senate. At this point looking back, should he not have done that?
DAVID AXELROD: Well I mean, when he went, he certainly — he didn’t know the history.
ACOSTA: The Democratic nominee’s chief strategist David Axelrod maintains Obama at that time had no idea about Ayers’ violent past.
So no one close to Obama read the Chicago or NY Press? …. come on ….

UPDATE III: Mark Steyn and Dr. Thomas Sowell comment
But, in the world in which Obama moves, it would seem absurd and provincial to object to partying with an “unrepentant terrorist”. The Senator advanced and prospered in a milieu in which men like Ayers are not just accepted but admired for their “passionate participation”, and function as power-brokers and path-smoothers. This is a great country, and most of us (as Peter Kirsanow notes below) make it without having to kiss up to America-haters like Ayers and Wright. But not Obama.
Who is this man on course to be 44th president? Apparently, it’s not just impolite but racist to ask. As notorious white supremacist Thomas Sowell puts it:
But the country does not deserve to be put in the hands of a glib and cocky know-it-all, who has accomplished absolutely nothing beyond the advancement of his own career with rhetoric, and who has for years allied himself with a succession of people who have openly expressed their hatred of America.
