Another Of Obama's Bill Ayers Associations

Who is Mike Klonsky?

Mike Klonsky, an Obama supporter and former associate of the radicals who formed the terrorist group the Weatherman, received a $175,000 grant from the William Ayers/Barack Obama-led Annenberg Challenge to run the Small Schools Workshop.

Klonsky belonged to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was best friends with friends William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who later became famous for their acts of terrorism.
This was at his blog on the Obama website:

How these people work their lies:
On May 12, 1969, Klonsky and four other SDSers were arrested at the organization's Chicago national headquarters for assaulting a police officer, interfering with a firefighter, and inciting mob action[/b]. A prank call to a local police station said there had been a shooting at SDS' offices. When the police arrived, Klonsky and the others were convinced it was a ruse to gain access to SDS' offices.[1] Klonsky convinced the police everything was fine, when a second prank call brought local firefighters to the scene. When the police attempted to force entry to the offices, Klonsky and the others resisted. Convinced state repression of SDS was coming, Klonsky told a national television audience on CBS' "Face the Nation" that police repression of the New Left was being planned by the U.S. Department of Justice.

In late 1969, Klonsky founded the October League, a communist party which in 1977 became the Communist Party, Marxist-Leninist. He was elected the party's chairman. The group opposed Gay Liberation and supported the regime of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran. Klonsky made several trips to China beginning in July 1977, where he was warmly received by government and Communist Party of China officials and treated to state dinners.

Meet Obama's new Bill Ayers associate

Ex-communist leader tied to terrorist eliminated from campaign website

wnd ....for complete article

The official campaign website of Sen. Barack Obama has completely scrubbed a series of user-generated blog postings on the candidate's site by a former top communist activist who is an associate of former Weathermen terrorist leader William Ayers.

The move has raised questions regarding Obama's relationship with the deleted blogger, Mike Klonsky, who runs an education organization that was founded by Ayers and that received a substantial grant from a group directed by Obama.

Obama's official site allows registered users to form groups and post content in online "community" blogs. The site boasts tens of thousands of such community blogs. Obama's spokesmen previously have stated the campaign does not monitor all content posted on the blogs, but it promptly removes any content brought to its attention that is deemed inappropriate or hateful.

Klonsky posted several blog pieces on Obama's site on education policy that did not contain what can be described as hateful material, but his postings were entirely deleted in June after several independent bloggers noted Klonsky's connections to Obama and Ayers.

Klonsky is director of the Small Schools Workshop, an outreach program founded in 1991 by Ayers with the stated goal of providing support for teachers who want to create smaller learning environments. Ayers reportedly recruited Klonsky to head the Workshop.

Klonsky served with Ayers and Ayer's wife, former Weathermen terrorist Bernadine Dohrn, in the Students for a Democratic Society group.

In the 1970s, Klonsky became a top communist activist and leader of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party.

He reportedly identified as a Maoist, and traveled in 1977 to Beijing, where he held friendly meetings with the Chinese leadership.

In a brief conversation with WND yesterday, Klonsky would not state whether he is still a communist. He did not deny his associations with Ayers or his communist activism in the 1970s.

Klonsky's blog postings were removed from Obama site during a period the presidential candidate has been repeatedly questioned about his relationship with Ayers, who is currently a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and was a member of the Weathermen group, which sought to overthrow the U.S. government and took responsibility for bombing the U.S. Capitol in 1971.

Ayers has admitted to involvement in the bombings of U.S. governmental buildings in the 1970s.

Ayers told the New York Times in an interview released Sept. 11, 2001, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." He posed for a photograph accompanying the piece stepping on an American flag.

Last week, Ayers wrote on his blog he still feels not enough was done to oppose the Vietnam War, although he clarified, "I don't think violent resistance is necessarily the answer, but I do think opposition and refusal is imperative."

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama and his campaign have been allowing these people and many others like this Mike Klonosky to have their community blogs at his campaign website. And this so called man wants to be President of the USA? God help us all if he wins.

We will see these kinds of people staying in the Lincoln bedroom, walking in the halls of our White House and dining on our tax dollars at State dinners. Then add in their influence on Obama that he obvioulsy sees nothing wrong in associating with them.

Mike Klonsky - Communist leader...and along with Bill Ayers, promoter of American terrorism, created a school workshop that received a grant from the Annenberg Challenge, the Chicago branch created by Bill Ayers and had Barack Obama as president and chairman, and now Klonsky gets his own little blog on Obama's offical website...

Very conerning to know about these things and why on earth people do not want to wake up and see how Obama is imo the enemy of our country.

....Thank you Mark for sending this article to me.

Not a bit surprised Chrissie, Thank you. In fact you can verify a lot of "Obama facts" on Annenberg Challenge, the same Annenberg that is the parent of has had close ties with the honorable Bill Ayres and the honorable Senator Obama. Neither organizational entity would be biased, nor would another respected and trusted pair, the Zogby brothers, John Zogby -shyster pollster & James Zogby - head of the American Arab Institute - propagandists for the Saudi -Wahabi lobby. Pass the Kool-Aid afore I falls back into my stupor.

Ah! I can see it now. If the voters are stupid enough to elect Barack Hussein Obama to be President we will see four solid years of scandals that will make the Clinton years look like a scandal farm team. As a reminder of those Clinton years:

Actual presidential scrutiny and criticism would be Barack & Michelle Obama and the Democrat's worst nightmare.

I heard on Rush today, a caller said, 'Ronald Reagan governor Charlie Manson a community organizer' If they want to start throwing these trite comparisons around this is one I can relate to when it comes to Ho-bama.

Ho-bamas associations are truly disturbing. His associations with either known communist or the Hate/Blame America first crowd, and I bet is the tip of the iceberg.

I thought the SDS was a defunct radical group,(Nixon had good reason to have them investigated) I have been proven wrong , again. But better to be wrong ahead of time then to find out later. His voters will find out later, for sure. With obama everytime they turn over a newrock there is a another snake under it.

The voters, the everyday run of the mill union voters, I haven't heard a lot of hoopla from the unions over obama. They have always been huge Clinton supporters and the Clintons haven't been bending over backwards to endorse or campaign for Obama. Then there is the fringe leftist kooks KOS and company who would vote for Stalin if he were running.

Bottomline I don't think they can do it. Not with the ticket we have now.

That I can remember this is the first time a pro communist candidate has actually run on the democrat ticket with all the support of the left-wing whackos. Thank God they are in the minority.
