A Few Thoughts From Around the 'Net on the Benevolent All Caring God Head Sun King

There is an ad being circulated by friends of McCain that has the Obama team rather miffed. They are asking their supporters to pressure advertisers and boycott the stations that run it. This is a perfectly legit tactic in a republic. However, Obama is also trying to get the Justice Department to take legal action against stations and the originators of the ad. Now while there is a certain poetic catharsis in seeing Mr.Campaign finance reform getting gigged in this way, it is still troubling, especially since Obama (who has forgone federal funding) is pushing the envelope on this even by the standards of McCain Feingold. Nor is this the only example of the DNC flexing its censorship muscles this week. I've long held that the modern left is far more likely than the right to silence those that disagree with them.

So here, via Instapundit... and utterly out of the ad the Obamatons don't want you to see.

Here is Obama's video opposed to his  Justice Department response.

As you can see, Obama's response is basically along the lines of "Ayers did his bad deeds a long time ago, I denounced them (when it became an issue) can't we just move on?"

If McCain were hanging out with Eric Rudolph...would they be saying that?
Is this an unequal comparison?
Ayers is not just a terrorist and a traitor, he started a terrorist organization, admired the Manson "family" bombed the capitol and the Pentagon and terrorized the citizens of the US.
Read about the bastard here.
Amongst his lesser crimes...

Ayers was an active participant in Weatherman's 1969 "Days of Rage" riots in Chicago, where nearly 300 members of the organization employed guerrilla-style tactics to viciously attack police officers and civilians alike, and to destroy massive amounts of property via vandalism and arson; their objective was to further spread their anti-war, anti-American message. Reminiscing on those riots, Ayers says pridefully: "We'd ... proven that it was possible -- we didn't all die, we were still there."

So much for the politics of hope.
Ayers is the lowest form of scum. Obama got his political start in Ayers living room, was mentored by him and has served with the murderous twit in various political and activist capacities. To denounce the actions of the guy,(when it became an issue),  when Ayers is most decidedly unrepentant and still work with him is a thin rebuttal indeed.

A larger, more disturbing point is raised here by Jonah Goldberg (via)
I am amazed, simply amazed, at the amazement of many liberals that Ayers and Dohrn should matter to anyone.
This goes to the heart of why the modern left is actively scary....and why they can't see that they are. They see nothing wrong with associating with a terrorist if the terrorist was a leftie...and they are so detached, ethically bankrupt and provincial that they cant see why this is an issue.

Now to be fair this fairly strong connection to Bill Ayers actually reinforces Obamas rather nebulous claim that he'll bring about the agent of "change".
Ayers again:
"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents."

Yes its CHANGE!
The McCain ad on Ayers is perfectly legit in the questions it asks. It is up to Obama to answer them to the voters satisfaction.

Perhaps he will do that tonight...on the Obamacropolis.....

UPDATE: As I typed this Obama and the DNC have skipped the floor vote...which might have been, you know, close or something....and decided to just declare the Benevolent All Caring God Head Sun King to be the Lord Protector nominee.

1 I know you meant to reference an "Obama-Acropolis", but that looks more like "Obama-necropolis", which weirds me out.
