NEW YORK – Bill Ayers, the former colleague of President Obama who co-founded the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground, acknowledged in a radio interview the revolutionary ideology driving the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I have been very energetic in my support of Black Lives Matter,” Ayers told host Eugene Puryear of the online radio show “Liberation Radio,” produced by an activist group called the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

The interview with Ayers, a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, took place Friday. In a September interview with the Yale campus paper, Ayers boast of his influence on the 2008 election of Obama and described himself as “a First Amendment fundamentalist that is also a socialist, anarchist and communist.”

In the interview Friday, he said Black Lives Matter is “one of the most hopeful signs in the last several decades of folks coming together and building a movement for fundamental change.”

At the beginning of the interview, Ayers placed the movement in the context of socialist revolutionary methodology.
