Okay, in a nutshell this is the real problem that Obama has with the unrepentant ex-terrorist Bill Ayers:
Ayers is Klan and nobody around Obama seems to care.
He’s the left’s version of the wack-job ex-grand wizard of the KKK who still thinks he did nothing wrong way back when. He’s not the toothless 12-ugly-guys-parading-among-the-jeers-and-mooning klan of today either. No, he’s the old-school shoot-the-civil rights-workers-and-bury-them-in-the-dam Klan. He’s an evil man who did evil things in an evil cause and who says (if you believe the NYT) that he would do it all over again…
…and nobody in the leftist community of Chicago and Illinois, including Obama and his inner circle, seems to care in the least. They see him as an acceptable person. The leftists in his university gave him tenure. The leftists in charities put him on boards. The leftists in academic associations gave him profound influence over your child’s education. The leftist politicians put him up for an important government education-reform project. Obama appears to have been there smiling all the while.
Ayers troubled Obama and his advisers so little that they did not even prepare a defense against the revelation of Obama’s ties to him. Pumped up by 15 years of hun stories about the evil Republican attack machine, it doesn’t appear to have occurred to them that anyone, anywhere, would make an issue out Obama’s repeated association with the leftist Klan.
Ayers’s happy life and community respect reveals the pustulant rot in the American far left. A rot that undermines everything Obama claims to stand for. If Obama and the rest of the Chicago left saw Ayers for the Klan monster he is, then academia would have shunned him and he wouldn’t have gotten such prestigious political appointments. The grey beards would have steered the promising young Obama away from him and his team would have recognized, long before it became necessary, that they would have to explain why Obama even lived in the same neighborhood as the man.
But nobody did and nobody has and they won’t. The leftist Klan is okay with them. That is why that crowd can never be let anywhere near the Presidency.
