More Proof: Obama Lied About His Work with Marxist Revolutionary Terrorist Professor Ayers

Posted by iusbvision on August 28, 2008

Stanley Kurtz, who is featured in the previous post below, worked to get these papers released and they show that once again Obama just didn’t tell us the truth during the campaign. Investors Business Daily tells of what they have learned from these new documents so far:

When Obama’s association with William Ayers was raised at a Democratic debate this year, Obama replied: “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood. . . . He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.”

Tuesday’s release of papers from a Chicago school reform project known as the Annenberg Challenge shows once again Barack Obama has a problem with the truth.

The long-sought records that were kept under wraps at the Richard J. Daley Library at the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC), show that Obama and Ayers attended board meetings, retreats and at least one news conference as the education project got under way. The records also show the two continued to attend meetings together during the 1995-2001 operation of the program.

Clearly the relationship between Ayers and Obama is much deeper and longer than Obama admits. They in fact were partners in various entities and regularly exchanged ideas, including on how to turn Chicago schools into re-education camps to create a generation of social revolutionaries.

Tuesday’s release of the papers of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge were sought by the National Review’s Stanley Kurtz, who had met a stone wall erected by Obama’s UIC friends. UIC temporarily closed the supposedly public archives after Kurtz inquired. Ayers, who has long taught there, may have had a hand in suppressing the documents showing Obama to be a liar.

The UIC records show that in the 1990s, Ayers was instrumental in starting the Annenberg Challenge, securing a $50 million grant to reform the Chicago Public Schools, part of a national initiative funded by Ambassador Walter Annenberg, who died in 2002.

Obama was given the Annenberg board chairmanship only months before his first run for office. He ran the fiscal arm that distributed grants to schools and raised matching funds. Ayers participated in a second entity known as the Chicago School Reform Collaborative, the operational arm that worked with grant recipients. They met and talked often.

When Obama first ran for office, articles in the Chicago Defender and the local Hyde Park Herald mentioned his Annenberg chairmanship among his qualifications.

During Obama’s tenure as Annenberg chairman, Ayers’ own education projects received substantial funding. As we’ve noted in our series, “The Audacity of Socialism,” Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.

One of Ayer’s descriptions for a course called “Improving Learning Environments” says prospective K-12 teachers need to “be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and . . . be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.”

The Annenberg papers are quite extensive – 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama’s relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.

Limbaugh – this new information discovered in the “Chicago Papers” and the thuggery used to attack Stanley Kurtz (see previous post below) “is a window as to how Obama would govern.”

I don’t always agree with Limbaugh, but when I ponder the incredible number of incidents of Stalinist behavior by far leftist academics that have been documented on this site as well as on FIRE’s and ADF’s sites, and I compare it to what Obama and Ayres tried to accomplish with millions of dollars in funding in order to undermine academic standards and turn schools into indoctrination centers, it shows that Limbaugh’s concerns are not without merit.

If Obama were able to nominate people to the court with views shown in the “Chicago Papers” the threat to student freedom, civil rights and academic freedom would be difficult to understate.
