Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn launched Obama from their living room. Obama still swears he knows Bill Ayers but he was a radical when I was a little boy……
Bill Ayers says he is a “little c communist.” What does THAT mean?
WHY the statement in lower case?
What is the difference between communism (little c) and Communism (big c)?
If you belong to a church, your church may practice communism. When you lived at home, your family may have practiced communism. (c)ommunism is a social structure, (C)ommunism is a political/economic structure. LINK
Communism is a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of a classless, moneyless, stateless and revolutionary socialist society …
noun 1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to …

Bill Ayers said in 1995 that he was just a “small ‘c’ communist.“ He said it with a little laugh. And most of us aren’t even shocked. We’ve heard words like that before. But we should feel shivers running up our spines.
I know goofy liberals who moan about all the good intentions demonstrated by Karl Marx, Lenin, and Trotsky. They’re all Obama voters, for some reason. They are the same kinds of people who think Jesus was a communist, and that George W. Bush is Hitler. They are often the kind of people who try desperately to be completely nice in their lives, especially to designated victims. But often they harbor a belly full of rage — against conservatives, or big corporations, or fundamentalist Christians, or anybody who challenges their belief in their own saintliness.
In basic politics there are only two numbers you need to know. One is Six Million. You know what that means. The other number is not nearly as well-known, but it should be. It’sOne Hundred Million. Six Million is forever linked to Hitler’s Final Solution to the Jewish Problem. Whether it was precisely Six Million, or whether we should include the Armenian Genocide committed by the Turks, or whether we should add the tens of millions of other people killed by Hitler, not to mention all the other genocides in history … all that comes later. The expression “Six Million” has come to be a touchstone for human evil, and we fragile humans really need our touchstones. Otherwise we get confused, and wander off into perversity. We become suckers to political scam artists.
We need some kind of soundbite to remind us of deliberately chosen human evil, and Six Million is just about the right size to keep in mind. Six Million should stand for all the massacres of innocents: In Rwanda, in centuries of African slave trade, in Nanking, in Turkish Armenia, in the Partition of India, the list is painfully long.
One Hundred Million is the estimated number of people massacred by Communists in the 20th Century, according to a definitive study by French Leftist historian Stéphane Courtois and his team, published in The Black Book of Communism.
One Hundred Million is the second soundbite every sane person on earth should know.
Six Million and One Hundred Million — forget all the quibbles, just listen to the sound of those numbers.
Now when your friendly neighborhood “small ‘c’ communist” comes along, all smiles, and offering love and peace, we need to say just one thing: One Hundred Million. If that doesn’t wipe the smile off their faces they are beyond human reach. By that act of willed ignorance they have exiled themselves from the company of decent people.
Try it some time: There are an amazing number of nominally sane people who will try to explain that number One Hundred Million away. Vladimir Putin is doing it even now in Russia, where many of the murderers and their victims lived. That reveals what kind of man Putin really is.
In the same way, murderous racists need to be confronted with only one number: Six Million. It’s not because those murder victims were Jews killed by Nazis. It is just a gut-grabbing allusion to deliberate, massive human evil — always performed in the name of some transcendent ideal, of course.
So we only need to ask about two numbers to find out where people stand.
If Professor Bill Ayers then comes along and says
with his little laugh,
“I am a radical, Leftist, small ‘c’ communist … [Laughs] Maybe I’m the last communist who is willing to admit it. … The ethics of Communism still appeal to me.”
Well, right away we know who he is, don’t we?
Or take his lady wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who famously cheered on the Manson murders in 1969: “Dig it! First they killed those pigs and then they put a fork in their bellies. Wild!”
She’s sure no Governor Palin of Alaska, is she?
Or take the grinning minister who tells his people that “Jesus was a Communist.” (What about those 100 million, Reverend?)
Then there’s Obama’s Harvard Law backer, black supremacist Don Warden, aka Khaleed Al Mansoor,
“…whatever you do to [white people], they deserve it, God wants you to do it and that’s when you cut out the nose, cut out the ears, take flesh out of their body, don’t worry because God wants you to do it.” â€¨
It’s kind of a twist on Sesame Street: Which of these is just like the others?
They’re all the same, kids.

Bill Ayers and Valerie Jarrett’s mother are friends.
Valerie Jarrett’s mother, Barbara Taylor Bowman, co-founded the Erickson Institute in Chicago and still serves on its Board of Trustees. Tom Ayers, the father of Bill Ayers, was a one-time fellow trustee of the Institute. According to WorldNet Daily’s Brad O’Leary, the Erickson board also included Bill Ayers’ wife, Bernadine Dohrn. For his part, Bill Ayers called Bowman “a neighbor and friend” in his 1997 book A Kind and Just Parent, noting that his neighbors also included Louis Farrakhan and “writer Barack Obama.”
Did Bill Ayers write “Dreams From My Father” or had a major influence in it?
Another look at Ayers-Obama connection
by Jack Cashill
December 28, 2011
A little more than three years ago, I first posited on these pages the unwelcome truth that Bill Ayers was the primary craftsman behind Barack Obama’s acclaimed 1995 memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”
So taboo was the subject, however, that in the years since not one critic, left or right, academic or journalistic, has dared to explore it in print.
To make such an exploration easy, I will volunteer to any serious critic my digital copies of “Dreams” and Ayers’s 2001 memoir, “Fugitive Days.”
To make it easier still, I will recommend that critics do what I did in a few spare hours over Christmas: cross-check just the first few pages of “Fugitive Days” with “Dreams” and follow the threads where they lead. Here is what I found, much of it new to me.
- “Fugitive Days” opens in media res with a dramatic phone call. The 20-something Ayers learns that there has been an “accident.” Says the caller, “Diana is dead,” Ayers has a hard time understanding. “Diana is dead,” the caller “repeats slowly.” Ayers drops the line, and the conversation ends abruptly.
- “Dreams” also opens in media res with a dramatic phone call. The 20-something Obama learns that there has been an “accident.” The caller says, “Listen, Barry, your father is dead.” Obama has a hard time understanding. “Can you hear me?” she repeats. “I say, your father is dead.” The line is cut, and the conversation ends abruptly.
- Ayers imposes a fugitive’s worldview on Obama’s charmed life. In his own book’s opening, Ayers tells us that his world “spins further and further out of control.” Obama’s New York is “out of control” as well. Working in corporate New York, Obama sees himself as being “behind enemy lines.” More literally perhaps, Ayers and pals likewise find themselves “behind enemy lines.”
- As a fugitive, Ayers sees himself as “everywhere an outsider.” Obama also “knew how to live as an outsider” and feared that he “would forever remain an outsider.”
- Ayers traces his alienation back to his youth when he first felt that “cold touch of abandonment.” Obama traces his alienation back to “the sense of abandonment [he'd] felt as a boy.”
- In this opening sequence Ayers uses the words “solitary” and “escape.” Obama will use the former word 12 times, the latter word 23. As a control, I checked my own semi-memoir, “Sucker Punch.” I use “escape” four times and “solitary” not at all.
- Not being on the run, Obama “had nothing to escape from except [his] own inner doubt.” Ayers has only scorn for those “untroubled by doubt.” He struggles with “doubts and fears,” “doubt and apprehension,” “doubts or questions.” Obama contends with “doubt and confusion,” “tension and doubt,” “anger and doubt.”
- Ayers confesses in his book’s opening to being “gripped suddenly with fear, then naked panic.” Says Obama, “I was gripped with panic. Then the panic gave way to anger.”
- Both authors inhabit a world of angry people, none more so than their indignant selves. Obama uses the word “angry” 23 times. We learn in “Dreams” of a man who “snorts like an angry bull.” The police in Ayers’s Chicago, their “nostrils flaring,” stampede through the streets “like angry cattle.”
- Ayers struggled with his “interior anger.” Obama endured an “interior struggle.”
So one can assume Obama knew Bill Ayers past his boyhood. Do YOU actually think Ayers, with his radical views did not affect Obama in any way, shape or form?
Ayers and Obama worked on the Annenberg Challenge board together. Read at link below.
Both Bill Ayers AND Obama side with the “Occupier” group.
Does Bill Ayers Still Have Influence on the Obamas?
A Message from Michelle Obama in an email:
December 30, 2011
Millions must have pondered why First Lady Michelle Obama would send out a small ‘h’, small ‘n’, small ‘y’ Happy New Year in an email from email@example.com
Obama made it clear she doesn’t “want us to have any regrets” “this time next year” as she solicited small people to close out the year with a donation of “$3 or more”.
While many everyday Americans are slugging it out through the Christmas holidays in a Recession and can only wish for a break from misery, Obama describes her $4-million, mostly taxpayer paid Hawaiian holiday thus: “This holiday has felt a bit like one last, long deep breath before we plunge into 2012.”
Veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler noted the juxtaposition of the First Lady on a $4million vacation asking “what would have to be” middle to low income earners for a $3 donation.
The Internet is working overtime for the Obamas while they frolic in sand and sun.
The subject line of the Obama email reads “I want to be able to say”.
The closing line: “Thank you so much, and happy new year.”
How sincere can a Happy New Year wish be when it is spelled with lower case letters?
Lower case, little “c” communist Bill Ayers. (c)ommunism describes a social structure.
A wish from Michelle Obama of a: happy new year (lower case, little h, n, y). Coincidence? Is Michelle looking at 2012 as a year of changing the social structure of the United States? What were her intentions of typing it this way?
