Albatross Week: Obama and the Bomb Thrower

This is Albatross Week, a week devoted to dissecting certain infamous characters and their unflattering and damaging affiliations with the 2008 presidential candidates. It's no surprise Barack Obama will be making several appearances. As sick of the man as I am, I am resolute in my belief that while we know virtually nothing about him, we know enough now to understand why he shouldn't be trusted with the Presidency.

Consider this another reason not to buy Obama's explanation for his relationship with Jeremiah Wright, or in this case, former (and proud of it) domestic terrorist William Ayers. Oh, while watching this film, note that the photograph of Ayers stepping on the American flag was taken in 2001, for an interview with Chicago Magazine. You know, when Obama wasn't 8 years old.



Imagine Obama's luck. Bill Ayers, a former terrorist who openly admitted to perpetrating bombings on governmental buildings and led a movement to violently overthrow the United States government, became a university professor in Obama's home town. He would later pen the following admission in his book Fugitive Days, describing the bombing of the Pentagon in which he participated:
"Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them."
With a little help from his friends, Obama isn't exactly helping to improve his image or the way his character is perceived. Given that no one knew who Barry was before he announced he was running for president, the American people don't want to hear that their concerns are illegitimate. The man is running for the most powerful position on earth, subject to constant media attention, so I'll spare you what you already know about his relationship with Ayers and transpose the problem of terrorist activity from "domestic" to "Islamic."

Obama served as director of the Woods Fund, a not-for-profit group. It was during this time in 2001 that the group donated $40,000 in grant money to the Arab American Action Network. The Fund donated an additional $35,000 the following year, with Obama still serving as director.

The AAAN has its headquarters in what it calls "the heart of Chicago's Palestinian immigrant community," and
describes itself as working to "empower Chicago-area Arab immigrants and Arab Americans through the combined strategies of community organizing, advocacy, education and social services, leadership development, and forging productive relationships with other communities."

The AAAN has also reportedly worked on several projects with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee rights, supporting open borders and education for illegal aliens. In 2005, the group called an initiative to deny driver's licenses to illegal immigrants "a bigoted attack on Arabs and Muslims."

AAAN co-founder Rashid Khalidi was reportedly a director of the official PLO press agency in Beirut from 1976-82. Meanwhile, the PLO committed a slew of anti-Western attacks and was labeled a terrorist group by the United States. Khalidi's wife Mona Khalidi (President of the AAAN), was an english translator for the PLO during that time.

Khalidi has called Israel an "apartheid system in creation" and a destructive "racist" state. He has expressed support for Palestinian terror on numerous occasions, and has justified suicide bombings by describing them as a response to "Israeli aggression."

Obama first befriended Khalidi when the two worked together at the University of Chicago. Khalidi would go on to hold a fundraiser for Obama's 2000 campaign for House of Representatives.
According to a World Net Daily interview, Khalidi said he supports Obama for president because, "He is the only candidate who has expressed sympathy for the Palestinian cause."

Hmmm. I can't remember a time when Obama has expressed support for the Palestinian cause. At least not publicly to the American people, from behind a podium instead of the closed doors of the AAAN. Would anyone at ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, or FOX News care to ask Obama to describe his "support for the Palestinian cause?" Any liberal Jews want to ask Obama whether he'd sell out Israel faster than its own government can?

Why all this nonsense about the Woods Fund, the $75,000 in grant money given to the Arab American Action Network, and the Palestinian cause? Because Hillary was right. Obama was serving as a director on the board of this group with none other than former terrorist Bill Ayers, proving that sometimes, bitches can speak the truth.

Ayers is married to another notorious Weather Underground terrorist. You might remember her from our film as the girl who said "there's no way to be committed to nonviolence in the middle of the most violent society that history has ever created; I'm not committed to nonviolence in any way."

Her name is Bernadine Dohrn, and as she graced the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List, she was described by J. Edgar Hoover as "the most dangerous woman in America." Even Bernadine knows Obama, has supported his campaigns, and has served on panels with him.

Never have I known a public figure with such an ability to surround himself with people who hate this country. The biggest issue is not that America thinks Obama is a terrorist, despite his connections to those who are. The biggest issue is that Barack's attempts have not been to distance himself from Ayers and his views, but rather to convey that the public's concern over his friendship with an unrepentant terrorist is an illegitimate and irrelevant one.

After all, he's just a guy who lives in his neighborhood.

Next: Obama and the Reverend
