Tea Party Protesters Greet William Ayers in Fresno (Protesters? I Thought Tea Partiers Were Anti-Government Terrorists Too?)

This quote from the news story below says everything we need to know about the state of some institutions of higher learning: “Back in the 1970’s he bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon and some other buildings… he is now a college professor.”

The location of Ayers’ speech was moved from a government office building downtown to another location once the government remembered that Ayers has a penchant for bombing government office buildings.

One hundred people attended, and there were about 50 “Tea Partiers” protesting Ayers. The left needs to ask themselves why Tea Party types protested Ayers. Doesn’t the left call Tea Partiers “terrorists”? Doesn’t the left often refer to Tea Partiers as “anti-government”? If these accusations were true, the Tea Party would have been inside the building taking copius notes and nodding in agreement as Ayers spoke, but they certainly weren’t:

But of course Ayers claims he wasn’t a terrorist because “we never threatened to kill people, we never killed people.” Here’s the dictionary definition of “terrorist”:

ter·ror·ist [ter-er-ist]
1.a person, usually a member of a group, who uses or advocates terrorism.
2.a person who terrorizes or frightens others

That doesn’t say anything about having to threaten to kill or actually kill to qualify for the “terrorist” label. I’m assuming that someone who takes part in setting off bombs did at least frighten somebody.

I wonder what the Obama-lovers (Ayers was at one time, but he’s since been jilted) who are caressing the president’s Nobel Peace Prize think about Ayers saying “we need an anti-war movement now more than ever”?
