As we reported on The Natural Truth last week, the Boston Globe-Democrat is (finally) covering Bill Ayers' upcoming visit to Brandeis University. As usual, they start with a bogus premise ("Ayers to speak at Brandeis despite dispute over his past"–what dispute? He admits he blew stuff up!) and go downhill from there.
The same "free speech" smokescreen Boston College students tried to use is deployed once again. If you're still unable to understand why this isn't a free speech issue, all I can say is you should probably stick to listening to government-run radio.
What's fascinating about this Ayers visit is the locale: Brandeis.
When Katherine Ann Powers, Susan Saxe and Stanley Bond murdered Boston Police Officer Walter Schroeder, they were all attending… Brandeis University. Brandeis is in Waltham, MA, where one of Officer Schroeder's daughters, Clare, serves on the police force.
Last year a mentally-unstable would-be terrorist, Aafia Siddiqui, tried to shoot two FBI agents while shouting "Death to America" slogans. Even after she was shot, she struggled against capture and reiterated that she wanted to kill Americans. Where did Siddiqui go to college? MIT and…Brandeis.
A Brandeis alum recently made the following observation: "…around 1970, when Brandeis saw three of its women students posted to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List (Angela Davis, Susan Saxe and Katherine Power), no small feat since only seven women were ever put on that FBI list in all of its history."
Bill Ayers tried to murder US soldiers at Ft. Dix. He is currently being investigated for direct participation in a San Francisco bombing that killed a police officer. His organization tried to murder at least one judge by firebombing his house and car, while his wife and family slept inside. Spinoffs of Ayer's Underground and followers of his philosophy murdered at least three people–not including Officer Schroeder.
And now the only university to ever have three students posted on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List simultaneously is inviting this unrepentant, "wish I'd blown up more stuff" terrorist to their campus to speak?
