I wonder if he will be sharing his bomb recipes with members of the local education cabal?
MOORHEAD – Educational reform advocate and former anti-war activist William Ayers will be on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus this week for a public speech and meetings with faculty and students on how to incorporate social justice issues into curriculum.
Ayers, 68, co-founded Weather Underground, a group that in the late 1960s and early 1970s became known for bombing government buildings in opposition to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War – including the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol and the New York City Police Department. Charges linking him to bombings were dropped in 1974 due to government misconduct, including illegal FBI wiretaps.
Since his years as a student radical, he’s become a national expert on education reform and formerly was a distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Ayers was a controversial figure in the 2008 presidential campaign because of his contacts with then-Sen. Barack Obama.
