My Pal John Murtagh, who was bombed by Billy Ayers and the Weather Underground, sent me this news item - the grandson of the targeted Judge Murtagh helped Boston College toss the louse Ayers from a speaking engagement.
Boston College is the last Catholic University in America! Go Eagles!
After the school's decision, Americans for Informed Democracy and the campus group College Democrats held a lecture last night to discuss the controversy. More than 50 students attended the forum, "Academic Freedom at BC."
"I thought it was really powerful how many people thought this was a real problem," said Alicia Johnson, a BC student. "[It is] a recurring theme at BC; it's not just about Bill Ayers."
BC student John Murtagh III had a more personal story.
His grandfather, John Murtagh, a New York Supreme Court judge, was presiding over the "Panther 21" trial when the Weather Underground planted three bombs at his house in New York in February 1970. Murtagh, a senior, said he wanted to inform other students of the real controversy surrounding Ayers.
"This wasn't just about the school squashing free speech. There was a lot behind the actions of Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground," Murtagh said. "There is a lot more to why it was canceled. Since I had a close, personal connection to the story, I felt I had to come here and let everyone know what the real controversy behind Bill Ayers was."
When Bill Ayers gets all of the attention he actually merits as a moron - no mention, no where no how - America will have grown up.
Great work on keeping this Louse Ayers seen for what he truly is, Family Murtagh!
