Keynote Speaker for Association of Teacher Educators: Bill Ayers

Another reminder that the most radical excesses of the acid-crazed flower child era are now effectively mainstream:

Left-wing ’60s radical and onetime domestic terrorist Bill Ayers will be a keynote speaker at the Association of Teacher Educators annual conference in Atlanta next month.

Ayers gained notoriety alongside his wife Bernardine Dohrn as a member of the Weather Underground during the Vietnam War. He was involved in Chicago’s “Days of Rage” riot in 1969 and went underground as a fugitive from justice after an accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970 killed three Weather Underground members who were preparing a bomb that prematurely detonated.

Ayers admitted in a 2001 book that he participated in bombings of the New York City Police Department headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Pentagon in the early 1970s.

He subsequently became a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a “family friend” to Barack Obama before the president became a national political figure.

A sample of the wit and wisdom of Bill Ayers:

“Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”

The avowed communist revolutionary Ayers is best known for grooming Barack Hussein Obama for high office, as part of the same strategy of destroying America from within its own institutions that led him to abandon bombs for a career in education. Obama’s political career was literally launched from the apartment Ayers shared with fellow terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, inventor of the Fork Salute honoring the Manson Family’s senseless murders.

The popularity of Ayers and his malevolent views in the education establishment indicates that placing his pupil in the White House is only the beginning. To quote their fellow collectivist Hitler:

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'”

If we don’t stop what’s happening, no one will remember that there was ever such a thing as liberty, or be able to grasp the importance of it even if they did.

    Obviously, they couldn’t get Charles Manson.

    OK, let’s get something clear. Bill Ayers has got to stop being referred to a a 60’s radical; he was a 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and even a millennium radical. As recent as 2010 Bill Ayer’s said he did not regret his bombing and something about wishing he had done more. Calling him merely a 60’s radical leaves open for the image of a regrettful, penitent, ADULT who made mistakes as a mere student.

  4. Skyfall says:

    Bill Ayers is a terrorist. Period.

    The fact that we don’t purge the schools of vermin like this tells me we (as a country) haven’t got a clue.

    This walking horror has access to your children. So do thousands of his like-minded comrades. Yet the only cries we here are from weak-minded “progressive moms” about not upsetting their little tykes by having responsible armed guards in schools. HEAVEN FORBID!

  7. Dave says:

    It appears Bill Ayers’ is a racial (and radical) socialist whose main function is to teach teachers how to teach blacks and other minorities to hate white kids whilst teaching white kids to hate themselves. The cultural Marxists’ evil scam called “White Privilege” is being indoctrinated into our kids; all paid for, of course, with our tax dollars.

    Where is the “conservative” opposition to all this? Is conservatism dead? Is the Constitutionally limited Republic dead? Is there anything in America left to conserve?

    America is indeed slouching towards Gomorrah.

    The good news is modern-liberalism is sowing the seeds of its own destruction. The question is: once the radical-liberal order implodes, what will replace it?

  8. Skyfall says:

    Dave, the answers are:

    (a) Nowhere to be found.

    (b) Yes.

    (c) On it’s last legs.

    (d) Not much.

    (e) Anarchy.

  9. Dave says:


    Your answers to the first four are correct. The last one (e) is still an open question,IMO.

    Dave said: “Is conservatism dead?”

    No Dave, conservativism isn’t dead. It’s just “playing by the rules”, which, politically speaking, is the same as being dead.

    IMO, one of the major reasons the republican party, the tea party, and conservativism itself have been steamrolled by the Left is, we are always worried about playing by some imaginary set of rules. We’re always afriad we’ll do something “wrong”.
    Have you ever seen a leftist with such concerns?
    Have you ever seen a leftist apologize for something they said or did, no matter how untrue or outrageous? Who is “always” on the defensive, the Right or the Left?

    The only way to come back and defeat the Left is to take the gloves off and use their own tacitcs against them. Fight fire with fire, not tears, wimpish apologies, and heaps of weakness. (yes, that’s you Mr. Speaker)

  14. Bo-Jangles says:

    Take a good look at that picture of him standing on the flag. In any other country, he’d be hanged for that. That we, as a society, would allow someone like that to not only remain alive in this country, but go on to teach our children, is clear proof of just how weak and pathetic we have become.

    Thanks to all the fear and hysteria being spread by the Left and the MSM, we’re now looking for ways to make our schools “psycho-proof”, (as if that were possible) and protect our children. So why are we not concerned with protecting their minds?

  15. Alphamail says:

    A more in-depth version which should scare the crap out of American parents, or any patriot for that matter.

    Bill Ayers – Alinsky’s greatest student – is far more dangerous today than he ever was.

    Have some coffee and weep for America.

    This is Sol Stern trying to warn educators 5 years ago.

    In one ear and out the other.

    Maybe a better question is: Was “conservatism” ever alive?

    Even under the Reagan Administration the “progressive” agenda moved forward by leaps and bounds.

    Amongst othe liberal initiatives, Nixon put affirmative action on steroids thus providing the glue that binds together all the dissimilar leftist groups aligned against the straight white Christian male.

    The compassionate conservatism/socialism practised by the Bushes (e.g. expanding entitlements -prescription drug liability [22 trillion and rising]) not to mention his ill-conceived doctrine of spreading democracy worldwide that led to two unnecessary wars created the political landscape which ushered in the skinny socialist that now occupies the White House. And I just touched the surface on the The Stupid Party’s lib track record….

    Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans by Ben Shapiro

    Book Description
    Release date: January 8, 2013

    From the editor-at-large of comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery.

    While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today.

    Ben Shapiro uncovers the simple strategy used by liberals and their friends in the media: bully the living hell out of conservatives. Play the race card, the class card, the sexism card. Use any and every means at your disposal to demonize your opposition—to shut them up. Then pretend that such bullying is justified, because, after all, conservatives are the true bullies, and need to be taught a lesson for their intolerance. Hidden beneath the left’s supposed hatred of bullying lies a passionate love of its vulgar tactics.

    The left has created a climate of fear wherein ordinary Americans must abandon their principles, back abhorrent causes, and remain silent. They believe America is a force for evil, that our military is composed of war criminals, and that patriotism is the deepest form of treason. They incite riots and threaten violence by playing the race card, then claim they’re advocates for tolerance. Disagree with Obama? You must be a racist. They send out union thugs and Occupy Wall Street anarchists to destroy businesses and redistribute the wealth of earners and job creators. No target is off limits as liberal feminists declare war against stay-at-home moms, and gay activists out their enemies, destroy careers, and desecrate personal privacy.

    These are the most despicable people in America, bullying their opponents while claiming to be the victims. Shapiro takes on the leftist bullies, exposes their hypocrisy, and offers conservatives a reality check in the face of what has become the gravest threat to American liberty: the left’s single-minded focus on ending political debate through bully tactics.

    On the subject of spreading democracy around the world, Lawrence Auster writes:

    Massively fatal soccer riots in Egypt result in mass death sentences which trigger more massively fatal riots—Ahh, freedom!

    Let’s see if I have this right. On February 1, 2012, rioting soccer fans in Egypt killed 74 people, who presumably were also rioting soccer fans. This week a judge sentenced 21 persons to death for the killings. In rage, the friends and relatives of the condemned men rioted, killing 27 more people. What was that about Islamic society being in a state of eternal civil war? Add democracy onto that eternal civil war, and it gets a lot more uncivil, eh?

    Egyptians complain that their new democracy has not brought stability. But historically only the West, and chiefly the Anglo-form societies, and most of all the United States of America, have combined liberty and order. As de Tocqueville famously said, America was the only country in history that was both religious and free. But now America, in making freedom its highest principle subsuming all others, has destroyed that balance of order and freedom, replacing it by a combination of tyranny and moral chaos. And this tyrannical and morally chaotic America, flexing its muscles like a bully on dope, imposes “democracy” on the Islamic world, making it far more chaotic as well, while also increasing its tyranny.


  21. […] Admitted terrorist and Obama friend Bill Ayers to be keynote speaker at the Association of Teacher Educators.  Need any other reasons to get out of public schools? He was involved in Chicago’s “Days of Rage” riot in 1969 and went underground as a fugitive from justice after an accidental Greenwich Village townhouse explosion in 1970 killed three Weather Underground members who were preparing a bomb that prematurely detonated.

    I did my part by faxing and calling the ATE and demanding the Bill Ayers be canceled from the event.Please help by sending an email, fax or call using the text below or make your own.

    Email to:

    (Dave is the Director o the ATE and Ann is the President of the ATE. Phones numbers in article above)


    Dear Ann Shelly and David Richey,

    You have elected to schedule Bill Ayers to be a Keynote speaker at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Association of Teacher Educators that will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme implemented by you, the President of the ATE, is Living and Learning across a Lifetime.

    You choice to have Mr. Ayers as a speaker is deplorable and in itself anti-American and sends a message of violence to educators and students. I ask you now to remove Bill Ayers from this event and all events regarding the ATE. You should cancel any membership he has.

    Living and learning what? How to be a terrorist? How to get away with murder? How to hate America? What is the message you want the teachers to walk away with? It’s ok to be a terrorist and a mad bomber?

    Talk about gun control. We should start at the teacher level about gun control and violence. Bill Ayers said; and I quote Ayers; “Kill all the rich people. … Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”

    What are you thinking!? You can’t possibly be the same type of person as Bill Ayers, are you? Assuming you are not, then having a mean spirited anti-American terrorist being a speaker at this conference, spieling his hate to our young and to the teachers is deplorable to say the least! If you agree then cancel his speech and his membership. Otherwise it is assumed you are the same as Bill Ayers.

    Must we follow the money? Bill Ayers controls the Annenberg Foundation which has over $300 million to disburse which is in itself an atrocity. Is the ATE receiving donations
    from the Annenberg Foundation?

    I demand you to remove Bill Ayers from this event and all events
    regarding the ATE.
