Comics Alliance pays lip service to Bill Ayers
CA: What are you working on this year?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.
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.
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.
