Teaching Revolution in College

Many listeners of this program are familiar with the name Bill Ayers. He was a member of Students for a Democratic Society and co-founder of the communist Weathermen Underground, an organization whose members bombed several of our government buildings in Washington, DC. Bill Ayers is also famous as the man from whose living room in Chicago Barack Obama launched his political career. Today I want to tell you how Bill Ayers, after his bomb-throwing days, repositioned himself as an educator and spent 23 years as a professor of education at the University of Illinois in Chicago. In that position, Bill Ayers influenced thousands of students who grew up and became classroom teachers in grade schools and high schools.

A new book by Mary Grabar called Bill Ayers: Teaching Revolution describes Ayers’ shift from illegally undermining the United States to covertly undermining our country from within the system. Ayers’ Marxist and anarchist beliefs never changed from the days when he was a young radical, trying to blow up places and kill people to bring down “the establishment.” His career as an educator encouraged the destruction of America’s way of life by corrupting political, moral, social, and education standards. These leftist agitators moved from the streets into universities where they promoted class warfare and racial and sexual antagonism, and their leftwing version of social justice and multiculturalism.

Ayers continued his political activism by helping to form a new leftwing group, supporting Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, and delivering an anti-U.S. rant in front of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.

Ayers wrote a book called To Teach that is widely used in schools of education; there is even a comic book version of it. Mary Grabar's helpful book offers suggestions to overcome the havoc caused by Ayers in education.
