Pro­fes­sors sup­port Bill Ay­ers

The Covington News - - Opinion greed is not good tammy moure oxford -

If you have ever won­dered why af­ter you sent your child off to col­lege with proper and re­spected view­points of life and pa­tri­o­tism, and upon re­turn from their first se­mes­ter break their view­points are com­pletely changed, this might be the rea­son why.

There is a pe­ti­tion on the Web cur­rently signed by 3,247 col­lege pro­fes­sors, in­clud­ing pro­fes­sors at the Uni­ver­sity of Ge­or­gia, Ge­or­gia South­ern and Ge­or­gia State, who sup­port the char­ac­ter of William Ay­ers — a pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­sity of Illi­nois-Chicago.

The pe­ti­tion ac­cuses the news me­dia of char­ac­ter assig­na­tion, dis­hon­esty and pro­mot­ing McCarthy­ism in its deal­ings with Ay­ers. Re­mem­ber that Ay­ers was head of the Weather Un­der­ground move­ment, a ter­ror­ist group that among other ac­tiv­i­ties bombed the Capi­tol, tried to as­sas­si­nate judges and in gen­eral placed a fear in the hearts of most Amer­i­cans who were alive dur­ing the ’60s.

This is the same William Ay­ers, who ex­cept for a tech­ni­cal­ity, should still be in prison for his for­mer ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­i­ties, is still non-re­pen­tant of his an­ar­chist be­liefs and has ba­si­cally said that we, the Amer­i­can peo­ple, de­served the events of 9/11.

Pro­fes­sors that have signed this pe­ti­tion should thank their God ev­ery day that they have the free­doms to openly sup­port a char­ac­ter like William Ay­ers.
