Bill Ayers, domestic terrorist, enemy of the US, anti-capitalist (but doesn’t run from its benefits) and formerly of the Weather Underground, is just flat not happy that the nation, as a whole, has a tendency to show members of the military the respect they deserve.
It’s evil, I tell you, evil … and it just inconveniences poor little Bill, because he has to wait to board an airplane sometimes:
We are living in a militarized society. That, that, it’s clear what the message is from power. The message is that Occupy represents violence, and marginalization and insanity, when in reality it’s the 1% that represents violence, and insanity and militarism. We’ve got a militarized society and its become so common sense that, getting on the airplane coming out here, the first thing they said was let all the, uhh, let all the ya know, uniformed military get on first and thank you for your service. And I said as I always do: let’s let the teachers and nurses get on first and thank them for their service. I mean, why is it that everything military has got to be good and everything that has to do with actual work, real work, not jobs, real work for people, that stuff gets discouraged and marginalized.” [Emphasis added]
Anyone out there marginalizing “actual work, real work” as they show the military respect?
Any teachers and nurses out there dodging IEDs, losing limbs and suffering gunshot and shrapnel wounds in the performance of their jobs?
I certainly respect teachers and nurses. They deserve it. But, unsurprisingly, teachers and nurses are among the millions of Americans showing the type of respect to the military that Bill Ayers appears to just hate.
Because, you know, serving in the military isn’t “actual work, real work”.
Ayres seems to think it is his self-appointed job to “marginalize it and discourage” respect for the military. Because showing respect to those who guarantee Bill Ayers the right to sound like an entitled and pompous jackass is something beyond his intellectual grasp.
My guess is among the Bill Ayers of the world, war is never the answer. Unless of course it is his moth eaten hide that’s in jeopardy. And then, by God, he’d be the first demanding those who serve in the military put their lives on the line for his lousy existence.
