Obama 2008 | Lest We Forget | Ayers | Biden 2012

This is a fairly recent picture of Bill Ayers. “Cuba” on his T shirt reflects his mindset. The arm patch has 2006 on it.

Ayers wanted to start a revolution. He tried to start one in Cleveland. He tried to start one in Detroit…and he tried to start one in Ann Arbor. All three of his attempts failed. His most recent idea is to start a revolution through education. This is the guy who Obama was on two boards with… for nearly a decade. [1]  Ayers likened police and the military to pigs. [2]

The following remarks are from a speech William Ayers gave in Venezuela back in November , 2006…

“President Hugo Chavez, Vice-President Vicente Rangel, Ministers Moncada and Isturiz, invited guests,comrades……at the invitation of my comrade and friend Luis Bonilla, a brilliant educator and inspiring fighter for justice. Luis has taught me a great deal about the Bolivarian Revolution and about the profound educational reforms underway here in Venezuela under the leadership of President Chavez. We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution, and I’ve come to appreciate Luis as a major asset in both the Venezuelan and the international struggle—I look forward to seeing how he and all of you continue to overcome the failings of capitalist education…”

“I walked out of jail and into my first teaching position, and from that day until this I’ve thought of myself as a teacher…..Teaching invites transformations, it urges revolutions small and large. I taught at first in something like a Simoncito—called Head Start—and eventually taught at every level in barrios and prisons and insurgent projects across the United States. I learned then that education is never neutral. It always has a value, a position, a politics. Education either reinforces or challenges the existing social order.”

“Totalitarianism demands obedience and conformity, hierarchy, command and control. Royalty requires allegiance. Capitalism promotes racism and militarism – turning people into consumers, not citizens….Venezuela is a beacon to the world in its accomplishment of eliminating illiteracy in record time, and engaging virtually the entire population in the ongoing project of education.”

Ayers is like minded with Venezuelans.

Biden did a decent job debating last night.

Biden is participating  in the United States government…with Obama… who is like minded with Ayers.

 

To be continued.
