William Ayers Calls U.S. a "Warrior Nation"; Says U.S. Has Not Been a Force for Good in the World - Video 12/14/09
Here is video of radical leftist William Ayers giving an interview in which he said President Obama is actually a "moderate politician in the American Tradition." Ayers said those on "the Right" refuse to believe that, even though he is truly moderate.
Ayers criticized the United States as a "warrior nation" and said he believes the War in Afghanistan is "an invasion and an occupation." Ayers said Obama's decision to send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan is a "catastrophe."
Ayers was asked if he would advocate planting of bombs to protest the War in Afghanistan even as he did at the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol. He said, "absolutely not."
When asked if the American Government should be "frightened" of him and what he will do in the future to protest the War in Afghanistan, he said he is "not a frightening person."
He really summed up his view of his own nation by saying that "the idea (America) has been a force for good in the world for the last six decades is utter nonsense." Ayers is a man who can't stand his own country. Despite the hundreds of millions of people who have been liberated by the United States, despite the defeat of the Soviet Union, despite America's work to feed the hungry and provide medicine and aid across the world, Ayers sees nothing good about the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
These are the people our President has listened to for years. Ayers displays for us the attitude that many on the Left have about America. That's why they are so dead set on "change." They don't like our history, our values, and the principles that have made America the defender of freedom in the world. Essentially, they want America to stop being America, and become a socialist European-style state. I don't believe this is what Americans were bargaining for when they voted for Obama out of emotion, fear and frustration. We'll find out in the 2010 mid-term elections.
