Academics support Ayers

Three thousand commie professors:
More than 3,000 educators nationwide, including six Brown University professors, have signed a statement supporting William Ayers -- the man Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain called a "washed-up terrorist" at the third presidential debate. . . .
In response to the McCain campaign's focus on Ayers' radical acts of the 1960s and 1970s, "Friends and supporters of Bill Ayers" are circulating a statement online to vouch for the professor he has become.
Check and see if your kid's professor is on the list. Meanwhile, Comrade Ayers and Comrade Dohrn have a new book coming out:
Arguing that white supremacy has been the dominant political system in the United States since its earliest days -- and that it is still very much with us -- the discussion points to unexamined bigotry in the criminal justice system, election processes, war policy, and education. The book draws upon the authors' own confrontations with authorities during the Vietnam era, reasserts their belief that racism and war are interwoven issues, and offers personal stories about their lives today as parents, teachers, and reformers.
Shut up, you racist honkies -- but keep signing those tuition checks so they can teach your kids to hate you!


  1. Well, I go to Maryland @ College Park...there's about 10 professors on there. I'll have to bookmark that page to know who's classes not to take.

  2. Like your cousin, I went to Sing Sing on the Severn--we sort of didn't have any of these limp-wristed profs.
    Maybe you could proffer some college recommendations. What are some non-intellectually-flaccid, pro-American schools, besides the service academies?

  3. I'm a Marquette University alum, so I checked the petition and found one Marquette prof listed. I've emailed him and will update my blog if I hear back from him.

  4. Hillsdale College in Michigan is a favorite of mine (though I don't have first-hand experience with it). They are my heroes because they don't take any federal money - including student aid - so they retain their independence.

    They publish the excellent Imprimis, a periodical to which you can get a free subscription.

    From their website:

    Now, as at its inception, the political ideas the College promotes--natural rights, free enterprise, limited government and moral responsibility--are inseparable from the mission set out in its Articles of Association: to provide the education necessary to preserve free government. [emphasis mine]

    Imprimis is one of the pillars of Hillsdale's modern-day outreach efforts. It began with a readership of just over one thousand. Ten years ago, when it turned 20, its circulation stood at 335,000. Today, at 30, it has over 1,100,000 readers. There is nothing like it anywhere.

    I'm hoping that at least one of my (homeschooled) children will attend Hillsdale...!

  5. TONS of duplicates on that list
    by my count Peter Mc Laren (UCLA) is on there at least 4 times
