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?
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.
Must be saying fine print doesn’t count.
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.
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?.
“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?”
Welcome to the 'right-wing' Chris Kennedy. /s
Ayers book has a shout out to ‘political prisoners’ On that list he includes Sirhan Sirhan.
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.
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.
