Has Chris Matthews gone insane. He thinks that there is a difference in values between an anti-war bomber and an anti-black pro Klan bomber. So according to Chris, it is OK to set bombs and possibly kill people, or not OK but in Matthews mind you are better than a KKK bomber because they are racist.
Both groups are despicable, one hates blacks, the other hates America. The editor of The Nation, Katrina Vanden Heuvel’s biggest gripe with Bill Ayers is that he gave the peaceful anti-war left a bad name, ha, do you believe these people, she is not mad that the guy set bombs against America, she is mad that he hurt the reputation of the anti-war movement of the sixties. You can’t make this stuff up, after Pat Buchanan said that if he had launched his political career in the home of an unrepentant Ku Klux Klan bomber’s house, he would be finished, Matthews misquotes William Ayers to defend him.
Chris Matthews: “I think he said I wished we had done more, he never said bomb more, I think you have to be careful there. In terms of anti-war activism, I’m not gonna defend the guy, I hate that type of activity. What I’m saying let’s get the fact straight.
Pat Buchanan: “Let’s get the facts straight. Suppose we had a Klan bomber who had bombed churches, black churches in the 60’s, went unrepentant, and said I wish I had one more.
Chris Matthews: “One guy was anti-war, the other guy was anti-black. There’s a difference of values there.
Pat looks at Matthews as if Matthews is from another planet.
Pat Buchanan: “Well it’s bombing that is the same thing.
Chris Matthews: “He didn’t say he wished he would bomb more.”
Pat Buchanan: “You would not let me get away with, without ramming that home, saying, “What are you doing hanging around with trash like that?”
Chris Matthews: “Well I agree, I don’t do it.
Pat Buchanan: “That’s what Obama has done with his associations.
Chris Matthews: “No, thirty years later.
Chris Matthews: The motive of the Klansman, again is racist repression. It isn’t the same as being against a war that is wrong.
Pat Buchanan: I’m sorry you can bomb the Pentagon and the Capitol.
Chris Matthews: Bombings wrong. We can agree on that.
Pat Buchanan: The point is bombing is what they have in common and your point is.
Chris Matthews: Thirty years later.
Katrina Vanden Hovel: I am not here to condone the Weatherman, I think what they did violated the Left at that time was trying to end the war, a non violent peaceful Left and that is what one should strive for, they undermined the Left. But they were against the war, the Klan is racist.
Later Matthews said Bill Ayers was right in his motive but wrong in his means. Also Vanden Heuvel made a big deal about Ayers condemning the 9/11 attacks, wow, he really condemned the 9/11 attacks, holy cow, he went out on a limb with that decision, geez, if Bill Ayers never condemned those attacks, we might have been confused about whether they were truly wrong.
These people are nuts.
Here is a longer cut Part 1
Here is Part 2
Here is what Bill Ayers actually said, I’m sure Matthews will correct the record on Monday:
”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.” — from No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives, New York Times, September 11, 2001
