A controversial man, who became a political liability for Barack Obama during the campaign, was in the Bay Area on Wednesday night. The 1960’s and 1970’s radical and current college professor Bill Ayers spoke at St. Mary’s College in Moraga. However, he was met with a large group of conservative protestors.
Bill Ayers, the former leader of the radical group The Weather Underground was interrupted several times. He quoted Dr. Martin Luther King and lectured on ethics and democracy, while a crowd outside called him a terrorist for his anti war activities.
“We will hound Bill Ayers to the gates of hell,” said Melanie Morgan, from Move America Forward.
