    Educators signed a petition praising William Ayers as an education reformer whose ties to the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground are just "history."

    More than 3,200 supporters -- most of them educators -- have signed a petition protesting what they say is the "demonization of Professor William Ayers," asserting that his violent actions as the co-founder of the Weather Underground were just "history."

    "It's true that Professor Ayers participated passionately in the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1960s, as did hundreds of thousands of Americans. His participation in political activity 40 years ago is history; what is most relevant now is his continued engagement in progressive causes, and his exemplary contribution -- including publishing 16 books -- to the field of education," it reads.

    Ayers helped found the radical anti-war Weather Underground in the late Sixties. The group claimed responsibility for bombing the Pentagon, U.S. Capitol and a New York Supreme Court justice's home. Three of its members were killed when bombs intended for the U.S. Army base at Fort Dix, N.J., and Columbia University exploded in a New York City townhouse in 1969.

    The way I hear it, the Weather Underground called in their bomb threats to make sure no one was in the building when their bombs went off. Only members of the Weather Underground were killed making their bombs.

    Not that I approve, but what do you do when the top 1% starts a war and sends thousands of American kids to die for a bullshit war? Or what do you do when the government sicks attack dogs and riot police on you for piecefully protesting? And what do you expect when our government is abusing it's power and possibly stealing elections?

    I was there Dil.

    Typically, the only people starting riots were the cops.

    Maybe conservatives should become smarter and get into educating the rest of us.

    Yes. A terrorist who got off scott free is still a terrorist. If these people want to be traitors, they should pay the price.

    Maybe if I bomb federal buildings and have plots to kill servicemen and get awaywith it, I will get into the education field so I can be forgiven and a hero
