Obama’s Radical Connections: Weather Underground

Hussein Obama’s radical connections are not limited to his family (Marxist brother and cousin) in Kenya!

Far from it.

Obama’s Ties to Left Come Under Scrutiny

 WASHINGTON — Senator Obama‘s ties to a former leader of the violent left-wing activist group the Weather Underground are drawing new scrutiny as he battles Senator Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.As an Illinois state senator in 2001, Mr. Obama accepted a $200 contribution from William Ayers, a founding member of the group that bombed the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon during the 1970s.

Mr. Ayers wrote a memoir, “Fugitive Days,” published in 2001, and on the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks, he was quoted by the New York Times as saying: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”

He and Mr. Obama served together on the nine-member board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago nonprofit, for three years beginning in 1999, and they have also appeared jointly on two academic panels, one in 1997 and another in 2001. Mr. Ayers, who was never convicted in the Weather Underground bombings, is now a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

The Ayers link, reported on Friday by Bloomberg News, has surfaced in recent days as Mr. Obama tries to add to his lead in the Democratic primary fight. He faces Mrs. Clinton today in a primary in Wisconsin and caucuses in Hawaii, after which they will prepare for critical elections in delegate-rich Ohio and Texas on March 4.

  1. I honestly hope Americans stop drinking the kool-aid and realize this man is not what he presents himself to be. What is wrong with Americans? Why are they being so gullable?
