The King-Maker, William Ayers

Once there was a time when a young William Ayers believed that America could be overthrown through military means. He believed that blowing up buildings would bring about radical change, the change he desired and that which he was convinced could be achieved through boldly attacking head-on. He quickly learned that the FBI would have none of it and that his goals could not be attained while constantly hiding from the law.

It was time to change tactics and strategies, and he decided that he would rot the pumpkin from the inside out. This way, by the time we noticed the spoilage, it would be too late. Each day we would see a healthy looking pumpkin from outward appearances, unaware that the interior was a festering mess.

The Weather Underground began publishing a paper, Osawatomie, and it had some stunning writings, some of which bear a striking similarity to the views of one Barack Hussein Obama.

From, a few excerpts:

Revolutionaries must be organizers.

There are serious antiracist organizers building a revolutionary base in working class communities — in neighborhoods, shops, mills, mines, social institutions. There are those who are working among women, GI’s, vets, prisoners, among youth, students and the unemployed in every part of the country. There are some who have been at it for years and some who have just begun.

And this:
But revolutionaries expect adversity, expect to be fought every inch of the way by an entrenched ruling class, expect to confront danger and demoralization and overcome it, with creativity and audacity.

Indeed, the Audacity Of Hope. One must notice the similarity, also, of the Weather Underground logo and the Barack Obama campaign logo. Obama gave a radio interview to a Chicago radio station in 2001, and he had some pretty radical ideas then which he seems to still carry into today. He said:
Generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can't do to you, what the federal government can't do to you,but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.
There was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways, we still suffer from that.

The shame of it is, we are so close to having the pumpkin collapse in an oozing puddle on the porch and no one seems to care. Obama is about to be inserted as President and there is no doubt in my mind that he is a Manchurian candidate. For those of you who do care, I implore you to click on this link to Zombietime and read the entire piece.
And a special hat-tip to LittleGreenFootballs for showing me the way.

Long video well worth watching before election day!
