You may know that on December 5th the New York Times allowed unrepentant terrorist (and close pal of the shady character America elected as the 44th President) to write an Op-Ed in their Social Democrat Party Newsletter that they still like to call a newspaper. Ayers was essentially permitted to revise history in order to whitewash the acts of terrorism that he led and in which he participated. Then, further cementing their place as an irrelevant and biased fish-wrapper, the Times declined to allow Larry Grathwohl to write an Op-Ed rebutting Ayer’s fictional account of his actions. If you get your news from the MSM you may not know that Larry Grathwohl was an FBI informant who successfully penetrated the Weather Underground and knows better than anyone the true nature of what the group did and, more importantly for this discussion, the involvement of Ayers and his co-terrorists. Part of the NYT/Ayers’ revisionist fiction:
The Weather Underground crossed lines of legality, of propriety, and perhaps even of common sense. Our effectiveness can be — and still is being — debated. We did carry out symbolic acts of extreme vandalism directed at monuments to war and racism, and the attacks on property, never on people, were meant to respect human life and convey outrage and determination to end the Vietnam war.
So Ayers admits that perhaps he crossed the lines of “legality” and “common sense”. Now there is remorse for you.
Bill Ayers would like to use the fog of time to plead his case that he was just another protester against the Vietnam war, a point that the Times is perhaps willing to let him make considering his longtime association with the president-elect they so nakedly support. No amount of inspired fantasy, however, can omit the simple truth that there is only one significant difference between Bill Ayers and Timothy McVeigh.
Read the whole thing, including the part on page 2 where they print the rejected Grathwohl Op-Ed response. I really wonder if the Times has given up on being taken seriously by intelligent people.
