Bill Ayers is a proud radical. Mr. Ayers admits to co-founding the Weather Underground, a group whose members set off bombs at banks, the home of a judge, the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol building during the 1960s. In order to avoid arrest, Ayers and several of his fellow “Weathermen” had to live in hiding for over a decade. He surfaced in the 1980s with companion (and the mother of his children) Bernadine Dohrn.
Oddly enough, it was on September 11, 2001, the New York Times printed a story about Bill Ayers, quoting him about the bombings that his group orchestrated:
”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.”
Is it any wonder that Canada has turned Ayers away for the third time in recent years?
For the record, Ayers was slated to deliver the keynote address to the Worldview Conference on Media and Higher Education.
