Canada Free Press kindly published a piece I wrote about communist terrorist Bill Ayers and ACORN.
Here it is:
Canada Gives the Bum’s Rush to Bill Ayers, Terrorist, Obama Pal, and ACORN Conspirator
By Matthew Vadum, Special to Canada Free Press
Canada was absolutely right to deny entry to unrepentant American terrorist Bill Ayers.
Ayers, a self-described “small-c communist,” was barred Wednesday by the Canadian Border Services Agency. He had hoped to spread his visceral hatred of freedom and democracy at the Worldview Conference on Media and Higher Education on Thursday in Toronto. The conference was co-sponsored by the notorious Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto. OISE is well known for its embrace of radical left-wing politics.
According to the National Post, conference organizers whined that Ayers was being denied his so-called academic freedom. A spokesperson said Ayers’s refused admission to the country “should raise red flags for citizens concerned with free and open debate.”
The spokesperson is absolutely right. Those flags should be red. Bright red.
The now-retired education professor was a leader of the communist Weather Underground, a terrorist group that bombed U.S. targets, including the Pentagon, throughout the late 1960s and ‘70s. He said he doesn’t regret the bombings and has never disavowed the use of violence to achieve political change.
The Weather Underground plotted to use dynamite to murder military officers at a dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey in 1970. The only reason the bombing didn’t take place is because his comrades blew themselves up while making bombs in New York City.
As I write in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers (WND Books), Ayers’s group had even more diabolical plans.
According to Larry Grathwohl, a Vietnam War veteran who infiltrated the Weather Underground, the terrorists also came up with a plan to murder millions of Americans when the communist revolution the group pressed for came to pass. Their plan was to slaughter the one-tenth of the U.S. population they expected would turn out to be “diehard capitalists” incapable of reeducation.
Ayers is a close personal friend of U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama launched his political career with a fundraiser in the living room of Ayers’s home in Chicago’s Hyde Park.
Ayers is also a longtime supporter of the U.S.-based Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a Saul Alinsky-inspired urban terrorist group that uses violence and intimidation against corporations and governments to spread its version of “social justice.” Obama worked for ACORN and represented it in court as its lawyer.
Ideologically similar to Jack Layton’s New Democratic Party (NDP), ACORN is a profoundly antisocial organization. It tries to destroy everything that’s good in society, including free political institutions.
When Ayers and Obama sat on the boards of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and the Woods Fund of Chicago they directed funds to ACORN.
Now ACORN has metastasized to Canada. It maintains offices in Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, and Vancouver. (ACORN, incidentally, is also one of the evil groups New York Times bestselling author Ann Coulter writes about in her new book Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America.)
Investigators on a U.S. congressional committee concluded that ACORN illegally spends taxpayer dollars on partisan activities, commits “systemic fraud,” and violates racketeering and election laws.
The investigators’ findings were included in “Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise?” a report issued in summer 2009. The report declares that “[t]he weight of evidence against ACORN and its affiliates is astounding.”
As I write in Subversion Inc., acting in concert with other radical direct-action organizations ACORN successfully cornered the U.S. voter fraud market and helped to pump up the housing bubble that is still slowly deflating and causing havoc in U.S. markets. ACORN ridicules the work ethic and tries to recruit people onto the welfare roles. It supports gun prohibition and urges regulation of free speech. If something is good, ACORN is against it.
ACORN has no respect for democracy and the rule of law. Its mission ever since its founding in 1970 by New Left radicals has been to overthrow “the system.” ACORN routinely blackmails businesses for the political equivalent of protection money. It profits from its rent-a-mob services in which it takes money from one business with orders to stir up trouble for another business.
And now ACORN’s most famous employee, Barack Obama, is doing everything in his power to implement the destructive left-wing ACORN agenda from the White House.
Don’t let ACORN, Bill Ayers’s favorite activist group, wreck Canada.
