Can you think of two more unpleasant trolls to pair together than unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and unrepentant moron Ward Churchill?
Last night, they teamed up in the People’s Republic of Boulder, Colorado, to whine about their victimization at the hands of their academic oppressors, stroke each others’ massive egos, and pat themselves on the back for their heroism:
William Ayers, the former Weather Underground radical whose past made him a lightning rod in the 2008 presidential campaign, said Thursday that fired Colorado professor Ward Churchill became the victim of a “witch hunt” after comparing Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi.
“There’s no doubt in my mind he was persecuted because of his politics,” Ayers said before appearing with Churchill at a student rally on academic freedom at the University of Colorado at Boulder…
…Ayers is now an education professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago and an outspoken critic of intimidation of professors. “Again and again, we have political leaders who weigh in on what’s appropriate to teach and who’s appropriate to teach,” Ayers said Thursday. He cited the University of Nebraska’s decision to cancel his scheduled appearance at the Lincoln campus last fall after criticism from Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman. “Is that where we’re heading, is the university a fiefdom of the governor? That’s a little frightening,” he said.
…Ayers said he worries less about himself and Churchill than “about the teacher in Denver who can’t bring herself to ask the critical question because she saw what happened to Ward Churchill.” He also acknowledged that what the Weather Underground did failed to stop the Vietnam war but he refused to apologize for it.
“I don’t claim much for myself, but I’m not going to align myself at this late date with those who want to make war heroes out of criminals and criminals out of heroes,” he said.

See the Denver Post article for the laughable spectacle of these two violence-promoters moaning about their security needs. In moonbat Boulder. Seriously.
