William Ayers: 'I get up every morning thinking ... today I'm gonna end capitalism'

William Ayers, in a pep talk to an Occupy Wall Street gaggle, said he wakes up every morning thinking about how he's going to end capitalism -- though he acknowledged he goes to bed "every night disappointed."

The co-founder of the radical, Vietnam-era Weather Underground was videotaped chatting up what was identified as an Occupy Union Square group this past week in New York City.

In the tape, he told the crowd that he doesn't consider himself an optimist or a pessimist. Rather, he said: "I get up every morning thinking, today I'm gonna make a difference. Today I'm gonna end capitalism. Today I'm gonna make a revolution. I go to bed every night disappointed, but I'm back again tomorrow. That's the only way you can do it."

Ayers' past ties to President Obama stirred trouble for the Democratic candidate when he was running in 2008. The two worked together on a charitable board starting in the mid-1990s, and Ayers once hosted a campaign event for Obama when he first ran for the Illinois Senate.

Obama, though, distanced himself from Ayers. And Ayers himself wrote in late 2008 that the two were not close.

    BIll Ayres and his wife Bernadine Dorn are supposed to be in prison for life for committing murder in the bombings they pertetrated in their college years with the SDS and Weathermen. They got off on a technicality because of the liberal Supreme Court rulings that threw out legitimate evidence. Now they are wreaking havoc again trying to destroy us another way. These people are totally evil!

    Ayers, like all his drooling dolt followers, is a sociopath fruit cake with a suicide wish, the trouble is he has a mass suicide wish for the entire world.

    I can't believe he and all of his followers, like Obama, have made such inroads in this nation. But it has been a long term plan that is finally coming to fruition. It's up to us to stop it's continued march.

    This man is evil, and so is Obama. I'm glad that this came out; now the Republicans need to make some hay with it! God is being so good to them—He's practically handing them their commercials—and they'd better get with it and do some good with it!

    I agree. Of course, it's an uphill battle with the left wing MSM supporting Obama at every opportunity, but it's battle we can win.

    His wife, Bernadine Dorn, cannot get a license to practice law in the USA because she was on the FBI's most wanted list. Interesting how Michelle Obama and Barry cannot practice law in Illinois either. All were employed at the same law firm and Ayres father used his influence and got them their jobs. The plot thickens...

    For someone who's dream is to end capitalism, Ayers hasn't done too badly for himself. Nice job with a good salary, nice house, travels the country on speaking engagements, eats at fine restaurants - hmmm... I don't think he wants to end capitalism quite as much as he claims to.

    His father was a communist, lived in a very big house in a grand neighborhood and was CEO of a utility company in Chicago. These people are total hypocrites. They have ideas for us while they think they are above it all. HUBRIS MAXIMUS!

    It's really too bad he didn't blow himself up when he placing all those bombs. Of course, he probably had one of the peons do it so nothing would happen to him. Kind of like Al Qaeda.
