Bill Ayers Tells Oregon Students American Empire is Over

Left-wing cook Bill Ayers visited the University of Oregon (of course) last week to brainwash students about the ever-obscure notion that is “social justice,” which is the code phrase for, social-ism. Ayers propagated about the end of America and the launching of a new world. He wasn’t too specific about the latter.

Almost as interesting as Ayers’ speech itself, perhaps, was how the leftist radical was introduced by the university students. One girl, who described herself as a doctoral student at the university, spoke of the privilege they would have with their honored guest, in an “evening [of] radical imagination.”

Two other individuals, a professor and a graduate student, asserted: “Most of us have in one way or another acknowledged the sovereign authority of the U.S. government – or the state of Oregon– in order to be here tonight, either admission to the university, applying for a job, or just paying the parking meter. We have not, however, asked permission of the [Native Americans] whose ancestral home this is, and to fail to acknowledge that this remains disputed territory would in effect be taking sides, [and] reinforce the erasure of indigenous history and indigenous peoples.”

If this was a sane group of individuals, there would be rolls of laughter. But these people most likely subscribe to such propagandic thoughtlessness.

Ayers’ “end of the American Empire” schtick went as follows:

The great challenge for our generation [is] to find a way not just to live differently as individuals, but to find a way to think differently about what work means, to think differently about citizenship means, to think differently about what it means to be a ‘citizen of the world.’ One of the great dangers that we live in right now, is I don‘t think there’s any question, and I don’t think any of you would question, that the American Empire is in decline– that economically, and politically, and in some ways culturally, that we are in decline. And yet, the United States remains the most powerful, weaponized military system the Earth has ever known.
