Embattled University of Colorado ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill today resigned his post of chairman of the ethnic studies program but not his professorship ......
This guy has been a target of Limbaugh and O'Reily and Hannity and probably every other conservative mouth-piece for the past few days.
This guy sucks and should continue to be held out for public humiliation ---- except maybe that Humiliation might be against the Geneva Convention because it is a form of torture --- but Hell! He desrves to be tortured!!! Make him wear panties on his head!......VOTE HERE on the right side of the page. .... you can also leave a message. The DUmmies are on this too!
43.5 % ...(77 votes)
56.5 % .... (100 votes)
Keep him front and center as the spokesperson for the modern "progressives" (aka liberals). Sort of like having Howie Dean as the DNC chairman.
He should have it taken away from him against his will.
No, he should be fired.
I think he should resign, so he can run for the head of the DNC.
HE ALREADY RESIGNED

DENVER (AP) - A University of Colorado professor who provoked a furor when he compared victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks to Nazis resigned as a department chairman Monday but will retain his teaching job, the university said.
In an essay written after the Sept. 11 attacks, Ward Churchill said the World Trade Center victims were "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who organized Nazi plans to exterminate Europe's Jews. Churchill also spoke of the "gallant sacrifices" of the "combat teams" that struck America.
The essay attracted little attention until Churchill was invited recently to speak at Hamilton College, about 40 miles east of Syracuse, N.Y. Hundreds of relatives of Sept. 11 victims have protested the appearance. Hamilton College President Joan Hinde has said that "however repugnant one might find Mr. Churchill's remarks," the college was committed to his right of free speech and would not rescind its invitation.
Administrators have moved Churchill's appearance to a building that can seat 2,000, instead of the originally planned 300.
Churchill resigned as chairman of Colorado's Ethnic Studies Department, telling university officials in a letter that "the present political climate has rendered me a liability in terms of representing either my department, the college, or the university."
University officials welcomed the move.
"While Professor Churchill has the constitutional right to express his political views, his essay on 9/11 has outraged and appalled us and the general public," interim CU-Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano said.
I cannot get to the pre-vote page (sorry - I know what you mean).... can you do this and post a link?
he resigned as head of the department - but did not resign his professorship
the article source links works
he should resign his surname as he's not worthy to be in the same company as Sir Winston.
Ping - thanks for all your posts covering this story
Churchill is a filthy excuse for a human.
|Should Churchill resign his professorship?|
Has anyone ever asked this so-called professor WHY he thinks this way? When someone makes a real stupid comment, I'd like to know why.
yeah, i freeped it.
the yes's outnumbered the no's!
Governor Pataki said it best: "There is a difference between freedom of speech and inviting a bigoted terrorist supporter."
Absolutely breathtaking comments from the loonies....
This guy is really a terrorist.
He is a terrorist himself. He is tight with AIM, the convicted FBI killer Leonard Peltier.
Yep... isn't it hilarious how they always misuse the word "facist?"
Save me trouble of Googling it. What's AIM?
His wife, an attorney who is also speaking at the Hamilton event, is part of one of those free-Peltier organizations. She's also on the faculty at UC Boulder.
American Indian Movement. It has split into factions now so I don't really know what they are up to.
They were terrorists in the US. They executed some FBI agents and executed one of their own.Go to http://www.noparolepeltier.com for the truth from a retired FBI agent.
They are really leftist radicals who manipulated the Indian issues. They made things a lot worse for Indians.
I personally think they may have had a role in the murder of that Ramsey child in Boulder. It is a very complicated long story. AIM people were really involving themselves in the propaganda from that unsolved murder and brought forth fake witnesses.
An AIM lawyer diappeared from Boulder after skipping his court date for having weapons, burglar tools and assaulting his wife with a big gun.
What rface said. :)
If it's a stupid comment, there's no need to know why. Or do you think he might have a good point?
