Bill Ayers, famous for being a leading member of the ‘Weather Underground,’ a domestic terror group in the 1960s, showed up at the anti-Israel encampment at the University of Chicago, where he ended up teaching for years.

People who remember the 2008 election will recall that Ayers became a political lightning rod because he was an old friend of Barack Obama, who famously dismissed their relationship, calling Ayers just a ‘guy from the neighborhood.’

Obama-connected professor who led radical group that bombed US speaks at anti-Israel encampment

A retired professor with connections to former President Barack Obama and a history of involvement in far-left militant activism spoke at an anti-Israel encampment at the University of Chicago.

An anti-Israel encampment formed on the Main Quadrangle or “Quad” of the University of Chicago Monday was visited by Bill Ayers roughly seven hours into the demonstration, according to reporting from the Chicago Maroon and the Hyde Park Herald.

Ayers, listed on the University of Chicago’s website as a creative writing lecturer in the school’s Division of the Humanities, is best known for his co-founding of the far-left Weather Underground, a militant organization classified as a Domestic terrorist organization by the FBI that operated throughout the 1960s and ’70s and sought to overthrow the U.S. government.

Ayers was hunted by the FBI for his alleged involvement in the 1970 bombing of the New York City Police Department headquarters, 1971 bombing of the United States Capitol building and the 1972 bombing of the Pentagon.
