“Bill [Ayers} and I were in different parts of SDS. We disagreed on tactics. Bill has spent his entire life contributing to the betterment of society. That’s all I can say about Bill,” she said.[emp added]
They disagreed on means but not ends. I’ve said it before, the ideals of Bill Ayers, who still describes himself as a small-“c” communist, are simply not so extreme in the leftist subculture that nurtured and supports Obama. Bill Ayers waged war on America in order to further the interest of totalitarian despots such as Ho Chi Min, Pol Pot, Mao and the Soviets. He did so out of the belief that totalitarian communism represented a better system of governance than did liberal democracy. Katz openly supports Ayers and his vision of “the betterment of society”, and presumably so do large numbers of people on the American Left.
If we elect Obama, these ideals will have a foothold in the White House itself. Obama will select small-“c” advisors, appointees and judges. We will be a long time undoing that damage.
