So… apparently everyone feels the need to weigh in on the Ayers event next week. I just found this article, apparently written by Adolf Hitler (correct me if I’m wrong, but he’s dead, right? Bill Graham suggested we try to line him up for next semester though).
Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.rightsidenews.com/200904234491/culture-wars/former-terrorist-bill-ayers-to-speak-at-brandeis-college.html
And here are some of my favorite excerpts:
What Ayers has to do with ‘freedom’ in any form is a mystery for anthropologists of the future to figure out, as Ayers and his wife are quite open about their Communist leanings.
By the way: does it seem like Ayers is trying to get out of house a lot these days?
But if you were married to the despicable shrew Bernadine Dohrn, you’d be heading out on weekly road trips too.
The article also includes a series of telephone numbers for various Brandeis administrators. Hitler urges his readers to “politely express” their views on the Ayers lecture to Jehuda and Co.
That’s all for now, goodnight guys!

My favorite part came in the first paragraph, after he referred to us as Brandeis College: “Brandeis is a typical liberal institution and — apparently — uses the appellation “College” loosely”. Yes, we do use it loosely – apparently – to the point of not using it at all.
Because anthropologists will study one, individual, DEAD man? Last time I checked, anthropology was about studying living societies.
And, if you approach Marxism correctly, communism is all about “freedom.” Marx says that communism will “liberate the human senses.” If these people think that advanced capitalism is “freedom,” they can go right ahead. Ha.
A general comment: I find this all a bit sad, as he’s an actual PROFESSOR at another school. I assume he “speaks” there everyday. And UIC is by no means what Brandeis is (by reputation; its just a public university, whereas Brandeis has its..colorful..history). Actually this is kind of insulting to UIC. And I know few people who work and study there…
I don’t understand why “activism” and “democracy” were listed as categories for this post. The subject matter of this post doesn’t really have anything to do with either of those categories. In fact, I found this article (and post) to be a total waste of time to read…who gives a crap about what some random “right wing” blog has to say about this event? Please, do us all a favor and stick with providing commentary about articles found in the Boston Globe and other mainstream media.
Doug, we’re thinking of redoing our categories soon. Do you have any suggestions for what categories would be useful?
