What a bunch of liberal fascists--out in the open now.
I missed Milt Rosenberg's radio show with Kurtz last night, but maybe some of you caught it. (OK, we have the audio.) Feel free to comment. Here's one via The Corner. Excerpt:
As far as the content - there's significant evidence presented by Stanley Kurtz that Obama's been dissembling about his contact if not his relationship with Ayers.Yeah, why have Obama's Springfield records "disappeared"? Where are his appointment diaries? As I've said before, for someone so cautious he voted present over a hundred times in Springfield Barack Obama has an amazing assortment of radical friends. He must think nothing of it.
Let's look at their astonishing, over the top email attack. The Obama campaign suggests Barack couldn't have known about Ayers as he was only 8 years old when Ayers was trying to blow up Americans. So Barack is a big baby still today. And apparently despite being one of the smartest men in the world he doesn't think he needs to do his history homework. What can you expect from someone who thinks there are 57 states. But really, who does Barack Obama think he is fooling here? He sought out Bill Ayers expressly because he was a radical leftist political kingmaker in the Hyde Park community where Obama hoped to start his political career.
Of course in Hyde Park this was nothing out of the ordinary. Barack's predecessor as state Senator, Alice Palmer, actually went to Moscow in 1986 to attend the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. (David Freddoso, The Case Against Barack Obama, p. 128, sourced from the Black Press Institute quoting the People's Daily World, June 19, 1986). Palmer handpicked Barack, and in her first political move to support him in 1995 took him to a fundraiser at Bill Ayers' house in Hyde Park. Ayers latest contribution was in April, 2001. Their relationship was of long duration.
And Bill Ayers remains unrepentant about his terrorism.
And check out his office door last spring, as reported by the Tribune.
As far as the credibility of Stanley Kurtz, he is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a Harvard-educated social anthropologist, and was a respected research fellow at the Hoover Institution, affiliated with Stanford University. He has also lectured at the University of Chicago.
The Obama campaign tries to impugn Kurtz's professional integrity by changing the subject to policy debates and quoting partisan hacks in their attack. The Obama campaign lawyer comes out threatening retribution and attempting to silence by intimidation:
Obama campaign lawyer Robert F. Bauer replied: "If someone rides up to a convenience store with a sawed-off shotgun and a prior record, I'm not intimidating anybody by calling the cops. . . . If this [Republican] campaign is going to be run in McCarthyite fashion by lawbreakers in an illegal way, they are going to pay a price.Employing fascist measures to defend Barack Obama's long political alliance with a confessed terrorist bomber who targeted our troops, cops, and civil servants in the United States of America is a despicable act.
It won't work. You are a liar, a thug and a coward Barack, and America is beginning to really know you, despite your attempts to scrub your record on Bill Ayers.
P.S. Quote from your own since-scrubbed website:
Until recently, the site insisted that the two unrepentant domestic terrorists were now “respectable fixtures of the mainstream in Chicago,” and that their violent and radical past was no longer relevant:To compare, the ad on Ayers again, which the conservative group was justified in attributing to the Obama campaign. The ad now is fully accurate:
