Almost forgot that Bill Ayers glorified the killer of Robert Kennedy, but thanks to a commenter at Tim Blair’s blog, it’s time to remember:
“Is now the time to remind everyone,” emails KP, “that Obama’s babysitters Ayers and Dohrn dedicated their communist manifesto to Robert Kennedy’s assassin, amongst others?”
Even this columnist at The Nation didn’t buy Ayer’s excuses for the dedication:
It’s hard to imagine anyone now applauding the Manson murders, as Dohrn notoriously did in l969, or dedicating a manifesto to, among others, Sirhan Sirhan. But just because it’s ancient history doesn’t mean you get to rewrite it to make yourself look good, just another idealistic young person upset about the war and racism.
