When Brandeis University decided to kow-tow to religious extremists and withdraw their honorary degree/opportunity to speak from Ayaan Hirsi Ali, I made an off-hand comment on the air about how these same liberals would have no problem inviting unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers to speak on campus.
D’oh! From 2009:
Former radical William Ayers will finally get a chance tonight to be heard on a Massachusetts college campus. …
… For those of you keeping score at home, this is Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. “I only regret I didn’t do more” bombing Bill Ayers. The Designed-A-Nail-Bomb-Like-The-One-The-Boston-Marathon-Bombers-Used Bill Ayers. The guy whose nail bomb would have killed new Army recruits at Ft Dix, except his idiot Weather Underground pals blew themselves up instead–that Bill Ayers.
I’m in the “once you decide to blow people up, you lose your seat at the conversation table” camp. The students of Brandeis who brought Bill Ayers to campus are not …
The same students who–no joke–couldn’t say for sure they would oppose HITLER speaking at Brandeis (yikes!) are now happy to ban a feminist currently living under a death threat imposed by religious extremists. But for Brandeis, this story is just getting good.
Because Brandeis’ relationship with terrorism isn’t just theoretical:
“… around 1970 … Brandeis saw three of its women students posted to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List (Angela Davis, Susan Saxe and Katherine Power), no small feat since only seven women were ever put on that FBI list in all of its history.”
… Katherine Ann Power … started at the Brandeis University SDS chapter, then migrated to Weather Underground terror and murder. She killed a local Waltham cop, then went into hiding until 1993. Now she’s a popular campus speaker, acclaimed by liberals.
