Revolution: The Unspoken Agenda

Barack Obama and Bill much alike, or how close are they? At a debate this year, Obama said, “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood. . . . He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.” Why does Obama feel the need to disassociate himself from people like Ayers or Rev. Wright? Because he knows that they are toxic to his campaign of "hope".

Funny, because Ayers described his terrorist activities as being "driven by hope and love, not despair". He also claimed that the acts of his Weather Underground group were "not a big deal". In an interview with Fox News, Ayers said that they were out to destroy property and not lives, but that's a lie. Three of his cohorts were killed in a townhouse in 1970 while making a bomb to Ayers' specifications. The bomb was a nail bomb, and according to Andy McCarthy of National Review Online, it was intended to kill a bunch of soldiers at a dance in Fort Dix:

That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plan been successfully executed. Ayers attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, "tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too."

Very nice. And then there's this, from Discover The Networks
Characterizing Weatherman as "an American Red Army," Ayers summed up the organization's ideology as follows: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents."

Bring the revolution home; another word for revolution is "change". Now, it must be examined in-depth by honest journalists (an oxymoron, perhaps), the extent of Obama's association with Ayers.

At the start of Obama's state senate campaign, Ayers hosted a meeting at his home, which the Obama's attended. They served together for three years on the Woods Fund of Chicago. Then there's this, from an AP article that curiously is no longer available, but which an intrepid blogger from JustOneMinute managed to grab:
The minutes of the Annenberg Challenge meetings show that during a June 1995 meeting, Ayers was credited with having "worked diligently" to support the effort. More than a year later, Obama pushed the group to be bolder in its reforms.

"At the end of five years, will we have broken the mold? Not much seems to be bubbling up that is inspiring or substantive," October 1996 minutes say, paraphrasing Obama.

That would clearly indicate that not only have they been closer than fence-talkers, but that they have a common direction. It seems that they both want "change" to happen in America.

Then there is his twenty year relationship with "his mentor" and friend, Rev. Wright, who spews racist and anti-American vitriol from his pulpit and whom Obama listened to for those twenty years. We know from his own writings that Obama is personally preoccupied with race, and now we have his wife's college thesis made public. Here is just one excerpt from page two of that thesis:
There was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the black community, I am obligated to this community and will utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit the black community first and foremost.”

Will we have a First Lady who will use all of her "present and future resources" to benefit one segment of society over the others?

To all those who plan to vote for Obama, Hope and Change, I have one message for you; if you wake up on January 21st, 2009 and don't recognize the country, don't come crying to me.
