Ayers, an extreme leftist, has a long relationship with Obama. According to a retired federal employee, the Ayers family put Obama through school. Additionally, Ayers himself has directly contradicted the President in claiming to have put on at least one political fundraiser for Obama. There are allegations of many other intimate connections between Obama and Ayers as well.
During his speech at Kent State, Ayers defended the Weather Underground bombings implying that they were morally superior to the Boston Marathon Bombings in that no one was killed. He then analogizes Newtown to innocent shooting at a range to prove his point: ““How different is the shooting in Connecticut from shooting at a hunting range? Just because they use the same thing, there’s no relationship at all.”
Ayers conveniently forgets the self-inflicted killing of his three friends, including his girlfriend Diana Oughton, who accidentally detonated a nail bomb they were assembling in Greenwich Village. He also omits that the presumed target of the horrific bomb was a military dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
With friends like this, nothing Obama does should surprise us.
