Northwestern University Student Group Embraces Bill Ayers

Arguably, the intellectual battle for reason, individual rights, and capitalism begins in high school and ends in the universities. That’s why this kind of news is rather depressing:

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, two men whose reputations had dogged the Obama campaign this year, met for the first time this weekend at a “State of the Black Union” event at Northwestern University ,where Wright was the keynote speaker, the Daily Northwestern reports.

The event was hosted by the black student group For Members Only, which invited Wright to speak after Northwestern rescinded an honorary doctorate the university planned to give the Trinity United Church of Christ pastor. The group also invited Ayers—the Weather Underground founder—to attend because it was “only fitting,” considering the pair’s treatment by the media.
