D’Souza to Debate Bill Ayers: What’s So Great About America?

AyersBill Ayers is known for his 1960s radical activism. In 1969 he co-founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group that conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings (including police stations, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Pentagon) during the 1960s and 1970s in response to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

Dinesh will debate Ayers at the end of January, the first time the two men will meet on stage together. They will debate on the topic “What’s so great about America?” The event is open to the public and will be livestreamed on DineshDSouza.com for free.

Media is invited to attend.

    Dinesh, I wish you well with this debate. I find it interesting these “radicals” believe their ideas to be new, but are not original by any sense. According to Montesquieu, Republics rely on the foundation of virtue, however, communism’s foundation relies on fear and terror; conflict is needed for the few to rise into power, which makes sense why this radical wants to “bomb” and terrorize public buildings to get his point across. (Is debate the first time he considered a more humane effort?) If I lived in his Utopia (no-place) or Erewhon (backwards for nowhere), then I would be living in a world of terror, rather than reason, bombings, rather than productivity, and dictatorship, instead of freedom of expression; I would be living in a world void of the individual and individual ideas. (Good-bye artists and musicians!) For someone who hates the idea of the individual so much, Bill Ayers sure makes a point to voice his “individual” ideas. It reminds me of those who teach tolerance (but are the least tolerant); I’m afraid those who teach collectivism are the least to practice it. (Ironically, they are materially collective, but not spiritually collective, which makes sense in a Utopian world where God is dead). Isn’t an individual “debate” an irony in the world of Bill Ayers’ Utopia? The world has seen a plethora of hypocrites, but few have stood for truth.

      Looking forward to seeing Ayers get destroyed.

      • Vinnie January 25, 2014 at 11:04 am #

        Don’t count on it Don, Ayers still has the ability to stir up “O’s” supporters. I only hope Dinesh doesn’t end up like Breitbart, the eyewitness AND the coroner
        involved in the autopsy.

      Well spoken.

    This will be epic. I am highly looking forward to this debate.

    • Jo Fisher January 28, 2014 at 7:25 pm #

      I too look forward to Mr. D’Souza meeting with Ayres. I am sure he will show Ayres what America IS all about, and bring out the facts about Ayres/Dohrn trying to destroy our proud Republic in All their ugliness. Proud of you, Mr. D’Souza and that you DO love America, and bring Truth to our citizens. Thank you sir.

    Praise the LORD about your debating Bill Ayres. What an opportunity to stand up for JESUS, America, and the Constitution and freedom. Keep us updated so we can pray.

      Being a woman, I have never felt so afraid – I do not feel protected, but rather, ever exposed to terror from continued Utopian Marxists beliefs on our own home soil, something I never thought I’d experience in my lifetime. Women should be outraged, for our children, women, and mothers cannot look to the government to protect us anymore. Women are energized politically by the wrong ideas, fed to them by the liberal Marxist machine (Oprah, Today Show…) – instead, we should be outraged at the likes of this radical and the terror and lies he plants into our youth. I want a real man who will protect me, my family, and my country. Do you exist out there, or have the feminists killed you off? I can’t believe we’ve put our trust in an emasculated buffoon in the White House.

  4. mmmjv December 24, 2013 at 4:13 pm #

    Does Bill Ayers blame America for 9/11 like you do?

  5. Bob Rose December 24, 2013 at 4:19 pm #

    What’s great about America is that we’ll soon have school vochers, and schools will teach kids that learning to write is what literacy is all about; it will abolish “learning disabilities”

    campconservatism.com is non exitant today. It was devoted to having Bill Ayer investigated for academic misconduct. That didn’t happen, but he was retired. He was put to pasture… he did not choose to retire, no tenured professor does that??? Right? The pressure was on him! Watch my address to the university of Illinois board. google Mark Thompson address the university of illinois board of trustee’s. I did this twice. I confronted Chiris Kennedy, another utube moment. Be sure to watch the two videos. Be aware of the pressure they were under while Obama became the new president. I foresaw the future, put in in words and asked that they act…. now my predictions have come to bear on our nation…… To know Ayers is to know obama. Bill Ayers is a politicla pedophile.. he prayed on young minds. Ayers was the Vp of Curriculum studies of the AERA, American Ecucational Researbh Association…The largest organization of it’s kind. A radical, communist, terrorist, bomber, anti American, held the highest position in curriculum development form pre K to post grad in the United States of America? Is tha insane? This is the untold story today. Ayers is a professor of education………he was the leader of th fifth columen undermining the next generation, and the next generation, and the next……..and those other teachers who …………….need I say more, though I could…..for hours. Jack Cashill and I have exchanged much on Ayers… call me. Mark Thompson 217-417-2447….Any time. I have much to add to the conversation. Ayers had intercourse with obama on numerous occasions. Ask him. They exchanged ideas…….. Ayers as in Egypt the week before it blew up. They named the revolution “the day of rage”. Ask him why? Did it have anything to do with the days of rage in Chicago in 1969…….? If you truelly desire to get Ayers on the rope. Call me. Merry Christmas. By the way, I was arrested on the campus of the Universilty of Illinois on the last night Ayers was a guest in residence at Allen Hall, one of five hundres “liberal residential learining centers” in the US. Another untold story. I have volumes of info……people do not know….

      Lots of miss spellings on the preceeding post. Don’t let that diminish the message. I have issues with my vision on this display. I apreciate the work D does, greatly. I believe he is sincere. A short converstion wtih me may help him prepare for the pos he will be talking to.

  7. Dwayne Lannom December 25, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    Btw,That web address is from
    Tommy Nelson at Denton Bible… Excellent teacher if you’ve not heard him yet..
    Adrian Rogers used to say, “GOD often uses the ax the devil sharpens.” Also, Great point you made about God’s delivery system, brotha D!

  8. carlos martijena December 25, 2013 at 10:51 am #

    What a waste of time! Why do you want to debate a terrorist?
    Ayers is a criminal, somebody who does not deserve anything. He has succeded in his plan to destroy America with his disciple as
    President. Why do you want to give him more opportunity to be heard and to spread his noxious ideas?

  9. Mark Thompson December 25, 2013 at 8:44 pm #


    Thanks for all you have been doing to expose the truth, though I think it’s much like Frankenstien. There are many parts that make up the body that is attacking our freedom. Ayers is a major player, an ace in the deck so to speak. His role in education has paved the way in the brainwashing necessary to achieve a society that embraces socialism. His entire career was devoted to revolution. This from a man who was a violent revolutionary in his early days. Nothing has changed, only his associates, though many of the old one’s have continued on their path in the fifth column in education. Ayers, a political pedophile, has used his position in education to develop multiple generations of Ayer heads throughout the field of education. He held the highest position in curriculum development as the VP of curriculum studies of the AERA. This is the largest body of professors and researchers in education. Ayers has been guding curriculum for many years, from pre K to post grad. One need not wonder why sex has taken the role it is taking in early childhood education. It has nothing to do with benefiting the students, it’s all about creating the issues certain to develop when sex is entroduced at too young an age, let alone homosexuality…. Bottom line, Ayers, an unrepentent terrorist bomber, radical revolutionary, communist, atheist, FBI’s most wanted, is given a job at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Thanks dad! You might consider interviewing then U of I president Stanley Ikenberry, before he dies of old age. I’d love to see him on camera answering this question. When I put it to him, he answered, “there were no warrants for his arrest, his issues with the police were rectified”…..something to that effect. This same university is home to Professor McChesney, net neutrality fame, working for the government to take control of the internet. Famously stated, ” we must dismantle the present system and rebuild it in our framework”. That being a communist framework. Again, not word for word, but darn close. Google “radical teacher”, check it out. A printing press, the university press that puts out info for the radical teachers. The U of I is proud of it’s leftist positions, though they don’t want it to interfere with donations….

    Back to Ayers, why did a man who barely know Obama (as stated multiple times in the first election cycle) visit the whitehouse three times in the first few months? (Did you know that the whitehouse is no longer making their visitors list availiable to the press or to the public? Is this transparency?) Ask Bill how many times he’s visited the whitehouse. Ask him why he and his wife were active participants organizing the Gaza Flotilla? Why he went to Egypt right before it erupted in revolution? Was he on a state dept mission? Why did he go to Lebanon? Was he on a state dept mission? Was he speaking for Obama and company? Why did they name the egyptian revolution the “day of rage”? Was that a hat tip to the left, given that was the weather undergrounds name of the days of rage in Chicago in 1969?

    We see what’s going on in the country and the world. Some think colonialism is at the root. I’d like to suggest there are many influences and expose the trail of evidence that supports a certain other one.

    Stlain and Kruschev both stated that America would fall without firing a shot. That’s because they knew that they had inflitrated our government and our society in influential ways. For starters, it’s common knowledge that our government was a key player in creating the UN. A committee of twenty, led by Algier Hiss, is credited with achieving this end. It was later learned that three quarters of those on the committee were soviet spies. This evidence to back this up came about when we got our hands on the key to uncode Soviet communications at the fall of the Soviet Union in the eighty’s. It’s known as the Venona Release. So to sum up, the soviets created the UN via our government. This is important, considering the march to a new one world communist order that we march to under the guise of globalism.

    The second key is a plan our state department created and passed on to the UN to implement in 1961. It is easily researched, the John Birch Society has done a wonderful job of breaking down “freedom from war”. In a nutshell, it’s the plan to disarm all people, all military’s and transition to world government, ruled by international law. These laws determined and enforced by the UN peacekeeping force. America’s sovereignty would end and a police state would begin, in every nation state. Each nation having just enough weapons to squelch localized insurrection, yet never challenge the new world government. This is where we are heading, and every piece of the puzzle is in place today. This is the story that must be told. You will know them by their fruit, check out the fruit today. Connect the dots, recognize how everything is leading us to this end. An intentional world wide financial collapse is likely the mechanism to achieve the tipping point. Also consider Obama’s statement to medved last year “tell putin to wait till I’m reelected and I can get more done”…. Then consider that our gov. intentionally shipped our manufacturing base to China, that clinton intentionally gave away military and technological secrets? Why, because the big three are the leaders in this gargantuan new world order. I could go on about where it’s going to lead and end, but for now this is enough to consider.

    We are in a world of hurt, hope you can educate others and promote preparedness within your messages. God bless

      @ Mark Thompson,
      Thank you for your post, well written/spoken. Your enthusiasm is breathtaking and hopefully contagious! I couldn’t disagree with you on one thing.
      God speed..

      • Jo Fisher January 28, 2014 at 7:53 pm #

        Thank you Mr.Thompson for your enlightening posts. I have been touting much of what you write also, in trying
        to let people KNOW what is REALLY happening, and that Obama did indeed LIE AGAIN, when he first stated that the Terrorist Ayres, “was just a guy I’ve seen in the neighborhood”…LIES, LIES, LIES. Ayres got Obama into the CAC- Chicago Annenberg Fund, to which he had some $60Million to spend on the students, etc. BUT, in their OWN investigation, Annenberg claimed “These Funds WERE SQUANDERED.” Of course they were, as Ayres, Obama, Bernadette Dohrn, etal. were “greasing palms with the money, to launch Obama’s political career.” America is indeed in DANGER, and this FRAUD in our Whitehouse needs

        Again, excellent posts Mr.Thompson- Many need to be made
        aware of the Communists we have in Gov’t from the TOP DOWN, Who want to destory “Arrogant(Obama’s Words)America.”

        • Jo Fisher January 28, 2014 at 7:55 pm #

          Sorry: Should read “CAC- Chicago Annenberg Challenge”

      Good job Mark, exactly. If people could/would take their heads out of the ‘me-me-me’ ground and learn something…

  10. Mark Thompson December 25, 2013 at 8:56 pm #


    You should watch this, it’s seven minutes long and highly prophetic. Has everything to do with Ayers and Obama, goes back to 2009. I address the U of I board of trustee’s to investigate Ayers for academic misconduct and sedition.

    Let me know what you think.

    Merry Christmas

    Looking forward to it!

  12. Richard Robb December 29, 2013 at 12:28 am #

    Off the subject, but “The Enemy at Home” reminds me of an article that appeared long ago in Blackwoods Edinbourg magazine on the Islamic question. It is a much wider view of the conflict between Christianity and Islam that has proven amazingly prophetic. Too long to email, can I mail a xerox to your P.O. Box? I have 5 of your books, keep up the good work. R.R.

  13. Lori January 3, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    Wow – can’t wait for this. Thanks, Dinesh, for stepping out on limbs to reveal the truth. It can’t be easy but I hope it is rewarding in all ways. We took our parents and our children to 2016, and can’t wait to all go see America this year. God bless you, and thanks for all you are doing.

  14. Lori January 3, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Just read on the Young America’s Foundation website that this will be at Dartmouth College on January 30. Hoping to livestream!

  15. mark Thompson January 6, 2014 at 4:46 pm #

    Ayers is a one trick pony. He repeats the same speech over and over. He will speak of social justice, the narrative, he will speak metaphorically, he will charm you. Ask him if his vision of education will no longer test the students. Ask him if small schools is about indoctrination, or reading writing and arithmetic? Ha ha ha, like that ever enters the picture. He works toward revolution, that’s his thing. Just like Alinsky. Question him on his relationship to Chavez? How his step son is doing in Venezuela, if they have education or indoctrination in that nation? You should make light of his hip earring. Does he have his belly button pierced…..forgive me, I’m off track now……….

  16. Terri January 14, 2014 at 4:31 pm #

    I am so excited to watch this debate! I saw you a few years ago at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. You were awesome!

  17. Marge Wilaby January 14, 2014 at 6:56 pm #

    looking forward to watching this via streaming.
    is it 7:30 Eastern time?

  18. Roman January 14, 2014 at 7:35 pm #

    In my eyes an American is defined by the heart. To get right to the heart of the matter it’s the heart that matters more. I think Mr. Ayers better turn his ticket in and get his Money back at the door! God Speed Dinesh, Coram Deo!

  19. Michelle Z. January 14, 2014 at 11:35 pm #

    I’d highly recommend this course from The Great Courses: Utopia and Terror in the 20th Century. Listen to these lectures alongside the book, The Sociopath Next Door, and you’ll have the basic psychology behind how Ayers thinks and behaves. He’s not a mystery to figure out, he’s an ancient problem that Neanderthal tribes used to resolve by pushing off a cliff.


  20. Charles Baker January 15, 2014 at 9:51 am #

    Looking forward to seeing Ayers’ true colors exposed….if possible. Undoubtedly he will attempt to come across as reformed, moderate and reasonable.

  21. Ms Joey Ponto January 15, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

    I would really like to see your debate, but I will not be available to watch. Will your debate with Ayer be available to see later. Please let me know!

  22. Ann January 17, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

    Sorry, but it’s wrong to give Ayers a platform!

    He certainly has his free speech rights, but you elevate his voice when you invite him to a forum like this. That’s the wrong message to send to someone who hates this country.

  23. CBG January 23, 2014 at 5:49 pm #

    Can’t wait to see this. I absolutely LOVED your documentary on Obama.

  24. James Wilson January 24, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    Should be an interesting debate. The haves vs the have-nots. The “haves” as either generous or misers. The “have-nots” as destitute or free-loaders. It would be nice to have some real data on these categories. It would also be great to have clear categories as to what counts as redistribution for both “haves” and “have-nots.” The idea of property is very interesting. I just viewed “12 Years a Slave” and it was clear that the institution of slavery was grounded in property rights, and that one could do “whatever” with property. That “sovereign right” over property is debatable and I hope we see some of that in the forthcoming debate. And cheer to D’Souza for knowing how to get attention by teeing up this confrontation.

  25. Dan January 24, 2014 at 1:13 pm #

    Are you still going to be able to participate in the debate if you’re in jail?

  26. Debi January 24, 2014 at 4:34 pm #

    First I’d like to thank your parents for allowing leave home in search of your dream, God, for giving you the fortitude to stand up for truth and freedom, and you for recognizing “the good fight”.

  27. Justme79 January 24, 2014 at 10:45 pm #

    A university setting is not too friendly to our point of view. Good luck and I hope you destroy that commie.

  28. Michael J Nellett (@mjojonell) January 25, 2014 at 1:01 am #

    We are praying for you sir about this debate, your movie, and your run in with Obama’s Gestapo. I believe that Obama has underestimated the people…badly!

  29. Robbins Mitchell January 26, 2014 at 11:13 pm #

    Lower class America hating reactionaries like Ayers never argue with facts….they use ad hominems,distraction,false equivalancies,and flat out lies….anything to advance their little so called “progressive” narrative….even at the expense of demonstrable objective truth (“false consciousness”,don’t you know?)…expect Ayers to do much the same Thursday night

  30. pandora January 27, 2014 at 10:32 am #

    Ayers is DESPERATE to crawl out from under his puppet Obama, I would not do him the favor of a ” debate”. Ignore the loser.

  31. PatrickJT January 29, 2014 at 12:54 pm #

    I do not see any point in Dinesh debating a scumbag like Bill Ayers. Clearly, Ayers’ philosophy and tactics appeal only to those who desire the destruction of the United States. Do you really think that anyone who agrees with Ayers has enough integrity to even understand anything Mr. D’Souza has to say? This is a farce, it is unnecessary, and Dinesh will be degraded simply by being in the same room with this criminal. I refuse to watch it. I wish you would cancel it. Whatever you do, make sure Dinesh doesn’t eat the Hors d’oeuvres. Remember Andrew Breitbart.

  32. William January 30, 2014 at 10:51 am #

    Good Luck! Looking forward to the debate.

  33. mark s January 30, 2014 at 11:42 am #

    Does anyone know if this will be available after the debate is over via youtube or the site directly? I have a class and won’t be home until its over!

  34. Josie January 30, 2014 at 4:49 pm #

    Is available to watch online? Or is anyone taping the debate so we can watch it online? Sure wish I could see this regular time. Wonder how this came about? Best of Luck Dinesh. Thanks for being their to help fight our fight. Hope you whip commie butt.

  35. farrrightwing April 3, 2014 at 1:59 pm #

    Ayers I put in the same column as Alinsky and the Progressives. He is considered to be a “domestic terrorist” by the FBI. They are dangerous and wish America ill. I would like to find a way to lock them all up as subversives, which they most certainly are. Lock them all up before they try to lock up their opposition. This would include Hillary whose hero was/is Alinsky. Alinsky is the very essence of evil, a true sociopath if ever there was one. Reading his Rules for Radicals sends chills up my spine. The current administration is infested top to bottom with this vermin. God help us to resist and overthrow these oppressors.
