Chet Edwards Town Hall–August 26

From our perspective, the town hall was an enormous success. Even though printed signs and recording devices were banned, we made signs in line at the event and ensured that the voices of those who do not want the government to take over our healthcare system were heard. The questioning was carried out fairly and honestly; by our count, of the twenty questions asked, 13 were explicitly against the H.R. 3200 bill, 5 were for it, and two were undecided or asked questions that were not directly related to the bill.

Congressman Edwards himself showed up right on time but was not greeted by a standing ovation as has been reported elsewhere. It is true that many supporters stood to greet him, but they were the minority of those attending. In the minutes leading up to the event, our group and other concerned citizens held up signs and a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag. These signs ranged from criticisms of “Chedwards” to criticisms of the reform package in general (“Obamacare is assisted SEIU-icide”). Edwards answered most of the questions as we expected: he dodged many, twisted some statements into things they were not, and used the entire thing as a campaign event. He must have mentioned the VA clinic in Bryan that he has “saved” after every election about ten times. When asked whether he saw himself as a delegate or a trustee, he answered that he was a “representative.” He kept his cool until near the end, when he was visibly angered at the accusation that he was “allowed” by Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders to vote against Cap & Trade. While we would like to take him at his word, it is very suspicious that he was the second to last person to vote on the bill. Had the bill’s passage rested on his vote, would he have voted differently?

Chet Edwards insists that he has not yet decided how he will vote on this bill. He also made it clear that he had not yet read it during the town hall. Now is the time to make calls and pressure him to vote now. You can call his Brazos Valley office at (979) 691-8797. Make it clear that if he votes for this monstrosity, you will not vote for him in November of 2010.

A&M Profs Sign Petition Supporting Terrorist William Ayers

ayers-petition-flierThis past weekend, the Young Conservatives of Texas at A&M discovered that several A&M professors and graduate assistants signed a petition in support of the former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers. This comes just two days after Ayers appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America in his first sit down interview since being connected with President-Elect Barack Obama. YCT is posting the above flier around campus this week to inform students of these professors’ endorsement of Ayers.

William Ayers is responsible for bombing the New York City Police Headquarters, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon. William Ayers seriously contemplated the deaths of 25 million Americans.

“I don’t regret setting bombs, said Ayers in 2001 to the NY Times, “I feel we didn’t do enough.” He stood by this statement on Good Morning America. Moreover, in his latest book Fugitive Days (2001), Ayers reflects on whether or not he might use bombs against the U.S. in the future: “I can’t imagine entirely dismissing the possibility,” he writes on page 285

“Terrorists intimidate, while we aimed only to educate,” he wrote in Fugitive Days on page 263. And now Ayers is a university professor of education?!

The professors signing the endorsement include Patrick Slattery, Professor of Teaching, Learning, and Culture; Kathryn Bell McKenzie, Assistant Professor of Education Administration and Human Resource Development; Marian Eide, Associate Professor of English; Kimberly Brown, Associate Professor of English and Director of Africana Studies. Professor Brown was the keynote speaker of the 2008 Freshman Convocation. Is Ayers what she had in mind when she encouraged students to study “the history of student protest”? Professor Slattery calls himself a “very close personal friend” of Ayers and “in regular communication with him.”

The A&M student body, former students, and Bryan-College Station community should be very concerned about A&M professors supporting a radical like Ayers. These professors need to explain this endorsement.

Do they approve of Ayers’ violent past? Do they approve of his ongoing agenda to indoctrinate school children with leftist propaganda, to teach them to hate our country? Are violent bombings, mass genocide, and communist revolution the kind of “education” we should be teaching American children in schools?

As of this writing, these professors have yet to answer these questions.
