About That Photo Of William Ayers Standing On The Flag…..

The photo of Ayers standing on the American flag, hands in pockets, a look of absolute superiority on his face, was first published in Chicago Magazine in August of 2001 and the accompanying piece was just short of being a tribute to a man who had once planted bombs to kill his fellow Americans.
I’d like to point out something about that picture.
Note the setting. Ayers is bravely standing on the flag, haughty, smug, a man ovbviously convinced that he is just…..better. And he’s doing it in a tiny, closed, isolated alley.
He isn’t on the street, he’s not doing it on the steps of the local government or in a busy parking lot. He’s doing it in a tiny alley that doesn’t even appear to have windows that are open from the surrounding buildings. Nice gesture, standing on the flag. But…..if you’re that convinced of your righteous place in the political cosmos, why not do it in public instead of in that dank, weedy alley?
It’s just my opinion, of course, and I’m sure he and the photographer can come up wilth all sorts or artistic reasons the photo was taken there, but this isn’t the act of the brave radical.
It’s an act of craven cowardice.
Ayers and his ilk lurk in shadow, throwing their bombs both literal and figurative from the safety of the dark. And in this case, from the safety of a grimy little alley. There’s no courage here, no conviction, no spine. There’s just a little alley dweller showing us what he’s really, really all about.
So…..don’t get angry at slimy little alley dwellers like Ayers. Anger is an emotion that he doesn’t rate. Just look at him and understand what he is – and isn’t. The disgust and disdain we reserve for other vermin is more fitting in his case.
The photo says it all, if you really think about it.

Curmudgeonly sesquipedalian.

THEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER 9-11 WE BECAME SO ENSNARED INTO A POLITICALLY CORRECT PHILOSOPHY, THAT TODAY WE ARE LIKE THAT PIG THAT AFTER IT IS WASHED OFF IMMEDIATELY RETURNS TO WALLOW IN ITS OWN MUD AND SLIME, OR LIKE THE DOG THAT EATS IT’S OWN VOMIT, WE OPERATE AS A NATION, WITH A NEW LEADERSHIP THAT PREACHES WE ARE NOT A GREAT NATION, AND THROUGH CLEVER MOVIES LIKE AVATAR, THEY USE PEOPLE LIKE BILL AYERS AND ALL THESE FRIENDS OF OBAMA WHO TRY TO DILUTE & MIS-REPRESENT OUR NATIONS FOUNDERS, TO APPEAR LIKE A PEOPLE WHO CAME AND DESTROYED AMERICA, JUST LIKE CAMERON, THE PRODUVER OF AVATAR WHO HATES CONSERVATIVES, THIS HOLLYWOOD FILTH MAKES A MOVIE THAT IS TRYING TO RE-WRITE OUR NATIONS HISTORY, PEOPLE LIKE BILL AYERS WHO HATES AMERICA, HE IS SEEN IN THE PHOTO TRAMPLING ON THE FLAG, HE IS THE FRIEND OF OBAMA, WHO MOLDED OBAMA INTO HIS PUPPET, WHAT YOU ALL ARE MISSING IS THE FACT THAT THOSE WHO HATE AMERICA, THOSE WHO HAVE LONG BEEN THE ENEMIES OF AMERICA, WERE THE VERY GROUP THAT THE MEDIA HIDES OBAMA’S SCHOOL RECORDS, HIS MEDICAL RECORDS, WHO PAYED FOR HIS HARVARD EDUCATION.THIS OBAMA WHO WOULD NOT EVEN PLACE HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, WHEN OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT HE TOOK THE BUST OF WINSTON CHURCHILL AND SENT IT BACK TO GREAT BRITAIN .
