NYT minimizes and conceals both extent and seriousness of Obama's multi-year ties to terrorist Ayes over multi-million-dollar conspiracy to radicalize American education

This guest-post at HughHewitt.com links and quotes Stanley Kurtz' latest, which demolishes this puff piece from the NYT on the depth and nature of the ties between Ayers and Obama.

(Guest Post by Bill Dyer a/k/a Beldar)

Stanley Kurtz continues his investigative reporting and blistering commentary on the closeness of the ties between Barack Obama and unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, this time in response to a shameful New York Times puff piece that could have been written directly by the Obama campaign. One key paragraph, of many:

There is nothing "sporadic" about Barack Obama delivering hundreds of thousands of dollars over a period of many years to fund Bill Ayers’ radical education projects, not to mention many millions more to benefit Ayers’ radical education allies. We are talking about a substantial and lengthy working relationship here, one that does not depend on the quality of personal friendship or number of hours spent in the same room together (although the [NYT] article greatly underestimates that as well).

If you want your irony served up in cosmos-sized portions, consider that by far the most significant executive experience on Barack Obama's thin resume has been in his doling out small fortunes to radical, explicitly revolutionary education programs like Ayers'.

This is not a question of guilt on Obama's part by association merely with someone merely guilty (and shamefully still proud) of horrific crimes from the 1970s and 1980s. This is a question of recent co-conspiracy by an adult Obama in programs expressly designed by that proud bomb-thrower to overturn our existing American value system by indoctrinating students from toddler-age up with revolutionary rhetoric and doctrine.

Bill Ayers ought to be in prison still. If not in prison, he ought to be shunned and condemned. But Obama's failing isn't a passive one (a mere failure to shun), or a casual one (bumping into "a guy from my neighborhood"). Instead, it's an active, continual, multi-year collaboration in attempting to achieve despicable goals today. In addition to cosmos-sized irony, this whole story is permeated with cosmos-sized bad judgment, of a sort that frankly should disqualify Barack Obama from any public office.

You want a mnemonic? Obama's values are too RAW (Rezko, Ayers & Wright) for him to be permitted to become President of the United States.

Or this: Obama would make WAR (Wright, Ayers & Rezko) on the traditional American values we cherish.

Everyone knows that the Times is merely a propaganda arm for liberalism. Some day, Republicans will make the decision to stop pretending otherwise.

Why any sane person would pretend that the Times is an honest broker is beyond me.

Ms. Palin said at the fund-raiser in Englewood, Colo. “Turns out one of Barack’s earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times, and they are hardly ever wrong, was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. Wow.”

That's from http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/05/us/politics/05palin.html

Pity I can't boldface her "and they are hardly ever wrong" part :-)
