Is This The Real Reason Barack Won't Wear A Flag Lapel Pin?
Because if he did, Bill Ayers would step on him
But let's remember, he's a mainstream Chicago liberal, just like Barack!
Here's the original photo, along with the text. Get this bit of nonsense
In 1970, a bomb that was apparently being built in a Greenwich Village townhouse, occupied by at least five members of the Weatherman, accidentally exploded—killing three of the group, including Ayers's beloved Diana Oughton. In Fugitive Days, Ayers tries to imagine what happened. Maybe Diana tried to stop the others from their path? Maybe they all drank too much coffee and smoked too many cigarettes?
Maybe Diana saw that this bomb, packed with nails and screws, would have exacted a heavy human toll if it had ever reached its destination—a New Jersey military base. Could she have, in a gesture of sacrifice, crossed the wires herself? "I'll never know what happened," he says. "That's the price I have to pay.
And maybe they were smoking too much dope. One thing I noticed from the Weather Underground documentary of a few years ago was that everybody tried to divorce themselves from the group at the townhouse, as if this was some splinter group. Undercutting this narrative is the fact that Ayers' girlfriend was there. And the notion that she sacrificed herself nobly to save lives at Fort Dix is ridiculous; it's painting a happy face on a woman who had planned to murder others but was incompetent enough to only kill herself and two other fruitcakes.
