The Illinois Humanities Council is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with an auction fund-raiser. A good cause you might ask? Well, perhaps, but one of the items the council is auctioning features a special dinner with notorious domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.
Why is a tax-funded organization celebrating the lives of these admitted and unrepentant domestic terrorists? That would be quite a good question.
As Illinois Review notes, we the taxpayers have been floating this IHC group with our tax dollars. “While Medicaid providers wait and wait to be reimbursed from the state,” IR says, “certain vendors don’t have much trouble getting their taxpayer funds every year. Such as the Illinois Humanities Council. Since 2007, the Council has been the beneficiary of $4,189,582, compliments of Illinois taxpayers.”
Once again we see how the left supports terrorism and propagates hate for our own system and country by celebrating murderers such as Dohrn and Ayers, two people that have never apologized or shown any remorse for their part int he death of a police officer.
… and, folks, we are paying for these groups with OUR tax dollars. We the people are subsidizing terrorists like Ayers and Dohrn with our taxes.
Also, who could forget the famous photo of William Ayers disrespecting the grand old flag of the United States of America by standing on it, grinding it into the dirt of a Chicago alleyway?
This is the sort of hater we are subsidizing.
Lastly, it should also be remembered that this terrorist is a close friend of Barack Obama and when he started his campaign for the Illinois State Senate, Obama held a fundraiser in the living room of this domestic terrorist.
