Obama’s Domestic Terrorist Fundraiser, Bill Ayers, Denied Library Card – Emeritus Status

You know it is bad when you can’t even get a library card:

In a very unusual move, University of Illinois trustees today denied giving emeritus status to controversial retired professor William Ayers.

….

Ayers, the Vietnam War-era radical, had been an education faculty member at UIC since 1987. He retired effective Aug. 31 and then sought the emeritus faculty status, a largely honorific title that includes some benefits such as library privileges.

It turns out there is a Kennedy on the board, who didn’t like the idea of honoring someone who dedicated their book to the Palestinian terrorist who murdered his father:

He [Kennedy] said he could not confer the title “to a man whose body of work includes a book dedicated in part to the man who murdered my father.”

Hopefully Ayers won’t blow up the UIC library in a “non-fatal bombing.”

The university also faced questions in 2001 after Ayers wrote in his memoir about helping with the non-fatal bombings of government buildings.

See, it was all just harmless fun. What does Al Gore and President Lewinsky call it? Civil disobedience?

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has much more on this, including video of Ayers talking about his infamous dedication to the Kennedy assassin.
