Tucker Carlson wins online auction for dinner with Bill Ayers

Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson will have a very special dinner date before the end of 2012 — with Bill Ayers. Yes, that Bill Ayers.
Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (Ex-SDS & Weathermen)
Carlson donated $2,500 to the Illinois Humanities Council for the honor of supping on a home-cooked meal at the Illinois home of Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn — both unrepentant leaders of the terrorist Weather Underground.
“I bought the auction dinner because I support the important work of the Illinois Humanities Council,” Carlson emailed The Chicago Tribune. “Anything I can do to help.”
Conservatives slammed Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential race for his association with Ayers. Arizona Sen. John McCain’s running mate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, famously knocked Obama on the stump for “palling around with terrorists.” While she didn’t mention Ayers by name, it was widely understood that is who she was referring to.
Carlson’s winning dinner bid entitles him to bring up to six people. The dinner must be arranged at a mutually agreed-upon date before October 2012.
Those still itching to hang out with the Weather Underground clan still have a chance. An opportunity to go to a Chicago Cubs game with Dohrn is still up for auction through Monday.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “The humanities council is an educational nonprofit group that organizes lectures, presentations, performances, exhibits and cultural events.” It was founded in 1973 as a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, but later became a private non-profit organization. It continues to receive annual funding from the federal government.
The following dispute evolved:
1. beebop: He should take five severely
disabled American Veterans to show these disicable people what BOMBS actually
do. Good for Tucker.
How many bombs did the veterans drop on innocent Vietnamese peasants?
How nice of you to take a break from reciting the Vagina Monologues while
squatting over a small hand mirror to join us.
How come that Ayers is even walking around free ? How did he manage to stay
alive this long with all the people that hate him ?
Why don’t you ask a few Vets that yourself ? I don’t remember people
volunteering for that war you asshole
A lot of draftees escaped to Canada, Sweden, and elsewhere. Muhammad Ali found
a different way not to kill up to 1.5 million Vietnamese. Keep your foul
language to yourself.
Your logic is flawed; and FYI, you ASK people not to do things, you don’t TELL
them what to do.
This is just some troll. he misses the 1970’s and the weather underground
trying to blow people up .I guess Ayers is a friend of his. Maybe this is Ayers
. He can troll better than most. What A buzz kill. I was having fun
Ali was a celebrity. Who are you tell me to keep my FUCKING foul language to myself ? You have
some sway at the DC ? Calling veterans murderers and you are put off by
My language is nowhere near as foul as you suggesting Vets are women & baby
killers. I had two brothers and my Uncle in that war and I promise , they did
not want to be there. Why the hell you bring up Nam ?
The USA stepped in for the French to continue their colonial war. In fact it
was the liberals: Kennedy and Johnson. You are right that the draftees didn’t
want to go there but instead of resisting they followed orders. Instead of
helping the ones who did resist Ayers and his cohorts followed the government’s
logic: Throw bombs. They, of course, believed they could prevent more bombs on
the Vietnamese this way. You can’t talk about Ayers without reference to Nam.
That was his motive. I go with Ron Paul on this. The US never should have gone
there in the first place.
Thanks for your contribution
It would have been allot of peoples motive to snap his damn neck in the 1970’s.
That is two wrongs make a right. That is nuts. The whole 18 + year old
population trying to make a break for it in the 1960’s ? Ruin their lives ?
Some people want to see their parents again or their wife and kids rather than
be a fugitive or in jail. You don’t blame the kids that were drafted. No we
shouldn’t have been there and they shouldn’t have had to go there. So this
idiot thinks he will make a statement by answering violence with violence ? A
little collateral damage ? Ron Paul
would advocate none of that. He served in the military. If he hadn’t , he would
never have come home, be a doctor, marry his wife, have a son, and served in
congress and now running for the presidency.He would have been persona non
grata. You are one of them aren’t you ?
Don’t be ashamed. You talk so boldly of defying the authorities and
flinging a few bombs at american citizens . I wonder if I could get a waiver
like he did to toss bombs and be accepted back into society ? Really ,Common
man. Name yourself. You live in Chicago by chance ?
I can not believe the warped mental state that allows you to justify bashing
PSTD veterans as murderers and evidently Ayers as an american hero
Man, I wish my brothers could have you for about 1 minute
I am not bashing anyone. I feel sorry for your brothers that they had to go
through this. Kennedy and Johnson, later Nixon forced them to go. They are the
real culprits. Ayers just played the same game, only with opposite aims. For me
they are all criminals. Your brothers probably were misled and they didn’t know
any better, they probably didn’t have the means to resist the draft either. Ron
Paul served in the Air Force as a doctor. He didn’t have to fight anyone but he
said that the war was wrong.
Ok, lets make the peace. You are right about the war being wrong. I hated that
war and thought we would learn from it to never do the same thing again. And
here we are the last decade doing the same stupid things. I think we both have
the same point-of-view on that. At least I have the chance now at my age to try
with everyone elses help to pressure our government to stop this insanity
Thanks for your kind words. You are right, let’s stop the insanity of more
wars. I assume from your aka that you are a Christian. So, I wish you a Merry
Thank you man & since I will wish you a happy Holidays .
