There is a petition on the Web currently signed by 3,247 college professors, including professors at the University of Georgia, Georgia Southern and Georgia State, who support the character of William Ayers - a professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
The petition accuses the news media of character assignation, dishonesty and promoting McCarthyism in its dealings with Ayers. Remember that Ayers was head of the Weather Underground movement, a terrorist group that among other activities bombed the Capitol, tried to assassinate judges and in general placed a fear in the hearts of most Americans who were alive during the '60s.
This is the same William Ayers, who except for a technicality, should still be in prison for his former terrorist activities, is still non-repentant of his anarchist beliefs and has basically said that we, the American people, deserved the events of 9/11.
Professors that have signed this petition should thank their God every day that they have the freedoms to openly support a character like William Ayers.
