Ayers didn’t seek emeritus status but said he thought the board made a mistake by not granting it.

He also said he has never dedicated any book, including Prairie Fire, the book in question, to assassins.

The book was “dedicated to some very weird people, starting with John Brown and Harriet Tubman,” he said. Sirhan Sirhan’s name is listed with dozens of others on a page in the book, which also reads “To All Who Continue to Fight” and “To All Political Prisoners in the U.S.”

Seems like this should be pretty easily settled - somewhere there must be a copy of the book with the inscription in question.

Check the bottom of parakeet cages across America.

Well did he make the dedication or not?

So Ayers wants Kennedy to disbelieve his lying eyes, eh?

Ayers did, however, admit to writing “Dreams of My Father”.
No doubt, he wrote both of Obozo’s books.

He listed Sirhan's name above a dedication.

When is a dedication not a dedication?

When a leftist TELLS you it's not, that's when.

Ayers is splitting hairs by claiming that Sirhan Sirhan’s name doesn’t actually appear on the dedication page, as the committee appears to claim. So therefore it’s not dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan.

HE bombed the Pentagon and a Police station. THAT should have been enough to deny him Emeritus status.

And last I looked, attempted murder isn’t FREE SPEECH.

These people are disgusting.

The veracity of Mr. Ayers' claim should be easy enough to check.

Some dumb-a$$es somewhere MUST have actually purchased his POS book when it was first published. One or more of those dumb-a$$es MUST have kept the book, thereby assuring that at least ONE copy of the book is extant.

The dedictaion page of said extant copy of said POS book can be checked and the presence or absence of the offending text verified, can't it?.

I'm reminded of the scene in “Naked Gun” where police officer Leslie Nielson stands in front of a fireworks factory — which spectacularly exploding, with lots of noise and multi-colored incendiary splashes — telling the crowd “Move along, move along, nothing to see here.”

“There’s not a shred of truth in it,” he said.

“My words have cost me something I desire, so I repudiate them.

Can I be emeritus now?”

any suggestion he dedicated a book to the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy was fiction invented by right-wing bloggers

Welcome to the 'right-wing' Chris Kennedy. /s

The real amazing thing in this story is that Chris Kennedy is a right-wing blogger? Who knew?

William Ayers said any suggestion he dedicated a book to the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy was fiction.
Another loony, leftist, scumbag, sycophant who believes - "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."

If you want to see what a real piece of work this bastard is, check out a few of the other “names” in the list. Here’s a typical example:

“Proclaiming himself their leader, Fred (”Ahmed”) Evans, 37, an astrologer, calmly surrendered in the midst of the battle and just as calmly informed cops that he would have knocked off more of them if his gun had not jammed. Police found the weapon, a .30-cal. carbine, in a bush where Evans said he had dropped it. Evans, who affects the loose African dashike robe, received a $7,350 grant this summer from “Cleveland: Now!”, Stokes’ action group for civic betterment. He seems to have used the funds to better the community by buying weapons to disrupt it.”

I have a feeling that every name there belongs to a real dirtbag.

"There's not a shred of truth in it," he said.

He's correct. There's not a shred of truth in it. There's a boatload of truth in it. That's different than a shred.
