Obama Speaks at Fort Dix, Where His Friend Bill Ayers Attempted to Murder Servicemen at a Dance

Yay?

The base is now called Joint Base McGuire-Dix, as two bases were combined into the current one.

In 1970, Ayers summarized the Weathermen’s philosophy: "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents."

...

One of the Weather Underground’s bombs went off early, thank God.

Weathermen (Weatherpersons?) Ted Gold, Diana Oughton (Ayers’s then-girlfriend), and Terry Robbins, fatally detonated themselves on March 6, 1970. They were constructing a bomb inside a townhouse at 18 West 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Within the debris, cops discovered an anti-tank shell and 60 sticks of dynamite.

What was their target?

Were they better bomb makers, Ayers’s comrades would have set off a nail-filled bomb at a dance for non-commissioned officers and their dates and spouses at Fort Dix. As Ayers has observed, the bomb would have ripped "through windows and walls and, yes, people too."

Obama's likening to troops to "Santa in fatigues" didn't wow the crowd at For Dix.

Meanwhile, there are more demonstrations in New York protesting the deaths of Gentle Giant Michael Brown and Other Gentle Giant Eric Garner. The protesters chanted, "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!"

Barack Obama has said of these protests, generally, that they they are "necessary," and that "power" never concedes anything without a challenge.


Apart from that, the protests were mostly peaceful, which of course means largely violent.
