Ayers Demonstrates Against Obama: 'Appalled And Alarmed' By War (VIDEO)

For more proof that Bill Ayers and Barack Obama are not, actually close, video has surfaced of the education professor protesting in Chicago against the president's decision to send more troops to Afghanistan.

"I am appalled and alarmed that once again we are escalating the war, and the idea that there are benchmarks for getting out are a myth and a lie," Ayers said. "This is an absolute tragedy."

WATCH:

Long after the election, conservatives still tout the supposed connection between Obama and Ayers. Some even took a video of Ayers jokingly saying he wrote Obama's memoir as a true confession.
