#Breitbart.com Bombshell Exclusive: Professor Did Not See Barack Obama at Bill Ayers’ House!

The parade of derp continues

Yes, they’re at it again; breitbart.com is recycling the Bill “Booga Booga” Ayers scare story with yet another ridiculous post in their “Vetting” series: Exclusive - the Vetting - Senator Barack Obama Attended Bill Ayers Barbecue, July 4, 2005.

You may have noticed that most of their “vetting” stories involve recycling debunked right wing memes: Birtherism, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and Barack Obama’s supposed secret radical communist ideology. This one is no different, but it’s even dumber.

As a presidential candidate in 2008, Barack Obama disavowed any connection with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground radical who was one of Obama’s early backers and his colleague on the board of the Woods Fund in Chicago. We now have proof that Obama’s association with Ayers continued even after Obama had been elected to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate—in the form of a now-scrubbed blog post placing Obama at the home of Ayers and his wife, fellow radical Bernadine Dohrn, on July 4, 2005.

Dr. Tom Perrin, Assistant Professor of English at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, was a graduate student at the University of Chicago at the time, and maintained a blog called “Rambling Thomas.” He lived next door to Ayers and Dohrn in Hyde Park. He wrote at 8:44 a.m. on July 6, 2005:

Guess what? I spent the 4th of July evening with star Democrat Barack Obama! Actually, that’s a lie. Obama was at a barbecue at the house next door (given by a law professor who is a former member of the Weather Underground) and we saw him over the fence at our barbecue. Well, the others did. It had started raining and he had gone inside be the time I got there. Nevertheless.

Read their BOMBSHELL EXCLUSIVE discovery closely, and you’ll find that the author of this blog post did not see Barack Obama at this Fourth of July barbecue. Other people told him they saw Obama. And despite watching for Obama to show up again, Prof. Perrin never saw him at all.

That’s it. That’s their BOMBSHELL of the day: a 7-year old blog post by someone whose friends told him they saw Barack Obama at Bill Ayers’ house, but who never actually saw Obama himself. That’s what they are calling “proof.”

Here’s the full text of that blog post, by the way:

Guess what? I spent the 4th of July evening with star Democrat Barack Obama! Actually, that’s a lie. Obama was at a barbecue at the house next door (given by a law professor who is a former member of the Weather Underground) and we saw him over the fence at our barbecue. Well, the others did. It had started raining and he had gone inside by the time I got there. Nevertheless.

Despite posting someone on Obama-watch at the window, we didn’t manage to spot him again as we had our rained-off picnic in the living room. Instead we all went outside again and sat about under umbrellas. All around the south side sounded like it was involved in a small war, so presumably lots of people had been to Indiana to buy proper fireworks, which are illegal in my corner of the Midwest. We, however, made do with party poppers from Osco Drug (which you have to be 21 to buy). Then everyone ritually beat me up and threw me out for being British. Actually, that’s a lie.

In a nutshell, what we have here is a tasteless 7-year old nothing-burger on a stale fake outrage bun. FEAR THE VETTING!

Meanwhile, one of breitbart.com’s commenters reacts to this stupid article by calling for the President to be “put against a wall and shot.”

Birds of a feather …… Of course Obama hung out with Ayers and many, many more radical treasonous terrorists, It’s his nature. They all, every one of them, should be put against a wall and shot. I’ll even pay for the bullets. It’ll be well worth it to be rid of this scum.
