Western New York "Educators" Who Support Terrorist Bill Ayers

by on October 25, 2008

Perhaps more disturbing than Barack Obama’s connections to terrorist Bill Ayers and his lying about it is the fact that nearly 4000 so-called educators have signed a statement in support of Bill Ayers.

The statement, amongst other ridiculous things, says the following:

The current characterizations of Professor Ayers—“unrepentant terrorist,” “lunatic leftist”—are unrecognizable to those who know or work with him. It’s true that Professor Ayers participated passionately in the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1960s, as did hundreds of thousands of Americans. His participation in political activity 40 years ago is history; what is most relevant now is his continued engagement in progressive causes, and his exemplary contribution—including publishing 16 books— to the field of education.

So, according to these educators, bombing the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon is no different from non-violent and peaceful protest. These educators have voiced their support for a man who belonged to a domestic terrorist group that not only carried out bombings. but planned Nazi-esque re-education camps and genocide had they succeeded in taking over the government.

So which Western New York professors signed their names in support of Bill Ayers? I cross checked this  list of WNY colleges and universities with the pro-Ayers signatories. A large number of those who signed did not specify which school they teach at, so the list below only includes those who indicated their school.
