One disturbing trend of the Obama victory has been a resurgence of far-left 60s kooks into our political zeitgeist, energized by the cult of personality surrounding "change". The guy that should have been imprisoned or, at the very least, gone away many decades ago has some groovy new ideas for an Obama administration. From Bill Ayers at the Terl-awarded Huffington Post (h/t GP):
Obama is not a monarch -- Arne Duncan is not education czar -- and we are not his subjects. If we want a foreign policy based on justice, for example, we ought to get busy organizing a robust anti-imperialist peace movement; if we want to end the death penalty we better get smart about changing the dominant narrative concerning crime and punishment. We are not allowed to sit quietly in a democracy awaiting salvation from above. We are all equal, and we all need to speak up and speak out right now.Seeing how Bill Ayers never repented for his crimes against America, the "anti-imperialist peace movement" would probably involve a Maoist purge of those with non-revolutionary points of view. The fact that this assface gets primo internet space and a legion of sympathizers shows America isn't ready to go beyond 60s radical chic. It's annoying that these people think Obama is one of them, when they should be quietly retiring to geezer homes and living off social security.
