In a video produced by Turning Point USA, students at Marquette University react in shock upon learning that a textbook written by William “Bill” Ayers is used in a freshman education course.
Ayers is a former domestic terrorist who allegedly participated in several acts of violence in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, including setting off bombs at the New York City Police Headquarters and the Pentagon.
He became a focal point during President Barack Obama’s first bid for the presidency in 2008, when Republican opponents and the media questioned the nature of their friendship.
According to Breitbart News, Marquette lists Ayers book To Teach The Journey, In Comics as required reading for the course EDUC 1210: Introduction to Schooling in a Diverse Society.
“You’d think they’d use somebody a little more trustworthy,” one student says in the video.
