Comics Alliance pays lip service to Bill Ayers

The site owned by leftist AOL has really scraped bottom this time, by wasting their time interviewing former terrorist Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground about a graphic novel adaptation of one of his books, "To Teach: the Journey [of a teacher], in Comics". If there's anything in the interview that's really disturbing, it's this part towards the end:
CA: What are you working on this year?

BA: I'm working over-time this year on occupying this and occupying that, occupying the future and occupying my imagination, occupying everything in and out of sight.

Revolution is still possible, democracy and socialism, possible, but barbarism is possible as well. I'm trying to live leaning forward, a pessimist of the head but an optimist of the heart.
It sounds like Ayers talking out of 3 sides of his mouth, and this is just one more clue to how all these years, he's never shown any remorse for his past crimes. When he speaks of "occupying", he could even be alluding to the visit he paid to the OWS movement (H/T: The Mental Recession). And socialism has never particularly meshed well with democracy either.

There's really not much else to say here, except that Comics Alliance has plumbed new depths, and their mild description of Ayers as merely "a co-founding member of the radical organization The Weather Underground" only trivializes the really serious offenses he'd committed, and waters it all down to a superficial level. For someone who says he wants to lean forward, his world view sure sounds backwards.

Reason #2,409 why Comics Alliance deserves no credibility. Especially with Ayers. What a guy.

What's next, a comic about Mumia heroically killing that cop? Oh, that will be next, I'm sure.

Yet another reason I do not go to Comics Alliance.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
