'Not Committed to Nonviolence As an Ideology': Bill Ayers Won't Rule Out Bombing U.S. in the Future
In part two of Megyn Kelly’s interview with Weather Underground co-founder Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist said his group should have destroyed more property.
Weather Underground has claimed responsibility for more than 20 bombings in opposition to the Vietnam War.
“We should have done more to stop that genocidal war, and that included destroying more property,” he said.
Throughout the interview, he repeatedly defended his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, leader of the Weather Underground.
Megyn Kelly spoke to Ayers about his relationship with President Barack Obama, asking him how much ideology the two share.
“Zero,” Ayers said, adding that he did not know the president well.
“I knew him as well as he knew 10,000 other people, and today, I wish I knew him much better, and I wish he’d listen to me,” Ayers said.
“I have a lot of advice for him […] I want him to stop droning people, I want him to close Guantanamo, I want him to, you know, universal health care. Don’t you think we deserve universal health care? Seriously. Medicare for all.”
When asked if he would bomb the U.S. again, he said, “I can’t completely say, ‘No, I would never, ever rise up in opposition in a very militant and serious way' [...] I’m not committed to nonviolence as an ideology.”
