I was surfing the net tonight, and I found several blogs complaining about the Republicans discussing Ayers’ ties to Obama. “Obama’s not a terrorist like Palin said he is,” one blogger said. I am going to repost what I put on one of the blogs, because I feel like saying it, and I don’t feel like repeating myself. The blog said, “Sarah Palin called Obama a “domestic terrorist.” The shout of “kill him” followed a Sarah Palin rant on Obama’s relationship with radical Chicagoan Bill Ayers.”
So here’s what I said, “The point about Ayers is that he’s a terrorist. He blew up stuff, killed innocent people, and got away with it. Now he says he didn’t do enough. And Obama’s campaign was launched in Ayers’ living room. THAT’s the point, not that Obama is a terrorist, but that he is friendly with known terrorists. Add that to the dirty laundry list of all the other people he has associations with (His pastors, for example), and it paints a picture. ”
Obama is guilty of consorting with terrorists, not being one. Let me give an example of what Obama should do: I have a friend. Some of you know him. If he came out and said, “I think all black/asian/mentally retarded/etc people (pick your group) should be killed.” I would have to stop being his friend, because he stands for something that goes against every fiber of my being. Obama should repudiate his relationship with William Ayers. He won’t. That’s the problem.
