Obama's Soft Spot for Terrorist Bill Ayers

Sarah Palin struck a nerve last week when she accused Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists.” Palin was referring to Obama’s friend Bill Ayers who, along with wife Bernadine, were members of the ‘60s-era terrorist Weather Underground group.

Obama heatedly denies that Ayers — a communist by his own admission — was anything more than “just a guy who lived in my neighborhood.” But Obama’s red faced, fist pounding denial of this friendship with a man who was an associate of his for years should arouse suspicions among Americans fearful of another 9/11.

In my book, "The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama’s War on American Values," I outline Obama’s connections to other radical leftists as well, including Marxist Cornel West and Maoist Carl Davidson.

Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers are numerous. Bill and Bernadine Ayers hosted a fundraiser for Obama during his first run for the state Senate. Every rung on the political ladder Obama climbed, Ayers or his father Tom were there to help him along and work the Chicago machine.

At no time were Obama’s ties to communist Ayers stronger than during the period when they were both involved in Chicago’s Alliance for Better Schools and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Under the guise of “school reform,” Obama and Ayers conspired to advance the concept of Local School Councils, which look eerily similar to efforts by regimes like those in Nicaragua under the Sandinistas and Venezuela under Hugo Chavez to impose control over teachers and their independent unions by an authoritarian regime.

Stanley Kurtz, in the Aug. 18, 2008, National Review, wrote that the University of Illinois at Chicago allowed someone who was pro-Obama to essentially scrub records or expand the number of records deemed confidential — effectively stonewalling any information gathering efforts on the CAC files.

But a duplicate select records available from Brown University’s Annenberg Institute, which supervised the national Annenberg Challenge, indicate that Obama was the key figure in the Collaborative headed by communist Ayers, particularly on a controversial $2 million Leadership Development Initiative.

In light of abundant evidence to the contrary, Obama still denies his relationship with the communist terrorist Ayers. Why? Government grant-makers and a few deep-pocketed foundations may have lost millions in bad bets on the four-year Ayers-Obama collaborations, but nothing illegal took place.

But from the very beginning of the Obama-Ayers friendship, Obama knew of Ayers’ hatred of the rich and his unrepentant attitude towards using violent means to destroy the country we love. In that, Obama has shown a moral softness that we do not want, and cannot afford in our president.

Do we want a two-faced commander-in-chief who publicly denies knowing a terrorist, yet takes his campaign contributions from and is sponsored by the terrorists’ family and friends, including Maoist and communist Carl Davidson? Do we want a morally flexible commander-in-chief who owes a great deal to the terrorist’s family in his rise to power?

Do we want a president who collaborated with this communist and terrorist to scam foundation dollars to advance an anti-American agenda? Do we want a president who sent in his henchmen to erase records of their four-year relationship?

No, we do not. Back in 1986, when Obama first met Ayers, he could have walked away and forever repudiated terrorism. But instead, he chose to strengthen and build a decades-long deal with the devil.

Our next president must understand the difference between good and evil. When faced down by our enemies, he cannot blink and he cannot flinch. He cannot rationalize ANY relationship with those who hate Americans and would do our nation harm. To elect a man whose soft spot for those with terrorist and communist sympathies would only open the door to the destruction of our country from within.
