Twitter fight: IowaHawk levels Bill Ayers

The fight broke out after Ayers congratulated Pres. Obama over his controversial pardons and commutations.

Since the tweets refer to Diana Oughton, here’s a little background.

She was Bill Ayers’ girlfriend, fellow member of the Weathermen terror group, and was killed in a “work accident,” building a nail bomb.

Here is Ayers’ original tweet, praising Obama, followed by IowaHawk’s response, and some of the comebacks after that.

It’s everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy. I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. –Steve Bannon in the Hollywood Reporter
