Of all the far-left communism sympathizers whose influence is evident in Obama’s policy decisions, one of the most reprehensible is Bill Ayers. As a co-founder of the radical Weather Underground, Ayers claimed responsibility for multiple acts of domestic terrorism in the 1970s.
Decades after bombing buildings and evading arrest as part of this vile organization, he has repeatedly refused to apologize for his reckless and illegal behavior.
While candidate Obama described Ayers as merely a neighbor when the pair’s connection was first revealed, evidence later surfaced that the unrepentant terrorist played a significant role in launching his political career. For his part, Ayers described their relationship as “friendly.”
Ayers was a vocal supporter of Obama’s presidential candidacy in both 2008 and 2012; however, recent comments he made to Chicago Magazine indicate he has had a change of heart.
Primarily, his criticism revolved around Obama’s foreign policy initiatives. According to Ayers, Obama is “acting like any imperial leader would act” regarding action in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Obama “wants to have an agreement with [Afghan President Hamid] Karzai because he wants to keep American troops there, trainers there, to keep our interest in oil and all the rest of it on the front burner,” he contended.
In the end, Ayers complains that Obama is no different than “every puppet that the Americans have put up in the last hundred years.”
He noted that his former neighbor shows a disdain toward “brown people” in the Middle East, conceding that he did not expect Obama to really be any different than previous presidents. In fact, he said he voted for Obama merely as a stance “against white supremacy.”
“It has always been Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber,” he said of presidential elections, noting that Americans should respond with “other avenues to express ourselves.”
Apparently, building explosives and planting them in government buildings during a time of war qualifies as one such avenue.
His profanity-laced interview concluded with his assertion that he likely won’t vote for a Democrat in the next presidential cycle, expressing his support for fellow radical and Communist Angela Davis.
With seven in 10 independent voters now rejecting the current regime, Ayers is not alone in his criticism. Obama’s bombing buddy, however, stands in contrast to most of the naysayers by contending he isn’t radical enough.
Though the reasons vary, Obama is hemorrhaging supporters as his administration continues to self-destruct – taking the rest of the nation down with it.
