DAN GROSS: Evil Twin Booking, a West Philly-based talent agency, has been inundated with e-mails and phone calls related to its representation of former Weather Underground radical Bill Ayers. Gov. Sarah Palin has recently ramped up criticism of Sen. Barack Obama‘s ties to Ayers, who, along with his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, and other members of the radical group bombed various government buildings in the ’70s. Obama and Ayers, now a University of Illinois professor, served on a nonprofit foundation’s board together and Ayers once hosted a party for Obama. We’re told that Evil Twin Booking/Lost Film Fest partners Scott Beibin and Liz Cole have received more than 1,000 e-mails and tons of calls in recent days with everything from interview requests to attack letters accusing the pair of aiding and abetting terrorists. Evil Twin books speaking engagements with Ayers, his wife and several other Weather Underground members and others including actor Ed Begley Jr., authors and filmmakers. MORE
EVIL TWIN RESPONDS: “I can only speak for Evil Twin Booking when I say: This is a lame attempt by Sarah Palin to distract from the issue of the economy. I think people across the board see right through this subterfuge, with the exception of the burning-crosses-and-Judy-
DISTRACTED GLOBE: The Weathermen trained themselves to use guns and explosives, but were unable to decide how far they should go. A collective in New York led by Terry Robbins plotted to set off a bomb at a non-commissioned officer’s ball at Fort Dix. A short circuit in the wiring exploded the bomb prematurely, killing three members of the group and destroying their townhouse on West 11th Street. The FBI started taking the Weathermen seriously, and its members fled underground. The group reached the conclusion that they had made an error in New York. They would not unleash indiscriminate violence against the people. From that point forward, they took measures to make sure no one was hurt in their bombings. The Weathermen bombed the State Corrections Department in San Francisco. They bombed the National Guard headquarters, and the U.S. Capitol. They broke Timothy Leary out of prison and spirited him to Algeria. For a moment in time, the Weather Underground had their finger on the pulse of the growing counter culture. MORE
WIKIPEDIA: “We petitioned, we demonstrated, we sat in. I was willing to get hit over the head, I did; I was willing to go to prison, I did. To me, it was a question of what had to be done to stop the much greater violence that was going on.” —David Gilbert

“To the IGNORENT people who it concerns
I know the connection between you people, William Ayers, The Weather underground, your public allies, and Obamas stance on the 2nd Amendment. I searched the internet and see who your connnected to And I KNOW!! Have you ever heard of google? THE JIG IS UP AND YOUR SECRET IS OUT!!! Your not fooling anyone hiding behind the mask of “entertainment for people who think and act:. It doesnt fool anyone and no one cares either about your radicals and their babble. I researched the others and know how you are all connected and will tell the world.
I’m sure you only dare to send Ayers to a college because they are the ones that will accept UNAMERICAN professors teaching thier swill to thier liberal sheep students!!! You’d never get away with sending Ayers to my town spreading lies about America and promoting terror. Not going to happen. Sorry! If you did youd be run out of here so quick your head will spin like the exersists. We’ll believe and achieve in this country just fine without you. get a brain. get some common sense!!
Ayers isnt the worst either. You know Obama has been endorsed by Hezbollah, Qadaffi, The taliban, Alkida, Chavez, Castro and Chosun Sinbo. Why don’t you add them to your business too and see how far you get. The people you choose as friends and Allies says a lot about your character, judgement, and philosophy. You people are SCUMBAGS and so are the people who support you.
I’m sure Its too much to ask that your people stop the lies, slander & smears about McCain/Palin too but I doubt it, AMERICA IS NUMBER ONE AND YOU KNOW IT DIRTBAGS!!! TAKE SOME SHOWERS YOU HIPPIE RADACALS!!! IM SURE YOU NEED IT BECAUSE YOU ALL STINK TO HELL!!!!
-A PROUD AMERICAN!!!”
“I demand to know why you are representing this reprehensible unAmerican terrorist scumbag Bill Ayers. You should be locked up in Guantanamo with the rest of of your brethren. You and your kind (sickos) are truly disgusting and are the real reason the US is not respected any more abroad. In fact, I wouldnt be surprised if you jews are also secretly behind the global market meltdown you pinko commie piece of shit! Kill yourself! – A REAL AMERICAN”
