The real meat of these criticisms -- virtually ignored even by Fox News -- is the interconnection of "respectable" "meanstream" left-wing anti-Christian communist-abetting Tax-Exempt Foundations like the one Ayers and Obama served on -- in their case funded by Reagan-connected Annenberg money. Some of these Foundations have succeeded in transforming institutions and culture. It's debatable how effective Annenberg's billions have been. Sure, lots of damage has been done in the lives of many people by "community organizers" like ACORN, and churches like Jeremiah Wright's, all of whom benefited from Obama's stewardship of Annenberg wealth. But on the big scale of things, Ayers was a two-bit terrorist, and Obama is a two-bit communist.
But now Obama has received an endorsement from a representative of one of the world's largest, most powerful, most successful terrorist organizations. This organized crime syndicate has had far more devastating effects on the minds of children than "educators" like William Ayers has had. In fact, Ayers is just a pawn of this mega-terrorist cabal. Ayers the terrorist bombed only a couple of buildings. But Obama has now been endorsed by a terrorist who has bombed entire neighborhoods and whole cities.
We're talking, of course, about Colin Powell.
Read his fascinating and terrifying story here.
Even more terrifying is the fact that Ayers the wanna-be terrorist is considered an "extremist" while Colin Powell is widely considered a "moderate."
