"The sorry part of this is Ward Churchill has fraudulently represented himself as an Indian, and a member of the American Indian Movement, a situation that has lifted him into the position of a lecturer on Indian activism. He has used the American Indian Movements chapter in Denver to attack the leadership of the official American Indian Movement with his misinformation and propaganda campaigns...Ward Churchill has been masquerading as an Indian for years behind his dark glasses and beaded headband. He waves around an honorary membership card that at one time was issued to anyone by the Keetoowah Tribe of Oklahoma. Former President Bill Clinton and many others received these cards, but these cards do not qualify the holder a member of any tribe. He has deceitfully and treacherously fooled innocent and naïve Indian community members in Denver, Colorado, as well as many other people worldwide. Churchill does not represent, nor does he speak on behalf of the American Indian Movement..."

Churchills statement that these people deserved what happened to them, and calling them little Eichmanns, comparing them to Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, who implemented Adolf Hitlers plan to exterminate European Jews and others, should be condemned by all.

New Yorks Hamilton College Kirklands Project should be aware that in their search for truth and justice, the idea that they have hired a fraud to speak on Indian activism is in itself a betrayal of their goals.

Interesting....methinks we'll be finding out more about Ward Churchill than he ever thought or would like.
This is probably what will get him fired, not his 911 comments.
While researching my geneology, I learned that I am 1/32 Wampanog Indian....on my father's side....I bet I have more Indian in me than traitor Churchill. And I definitely know I'm more American.
He's a member of the Wa-Na-Bee tribe?
Or was he a source for dan rather or jayson blair?
That'll get ya fired from teaching in an ethnic studies program.
The implication is that the Left is still capable of shame. I don't think so. I suspect his demise shall be tied to the bottom line. These tenured idiots are limosuine liberals, and they don't want those cash contributions drying up. Otherwise, they might have to work for a living, as opposed to poisoning the minds of impressionable American youth for a living.
Not so for the University of Colorado. They are so embarrassed that they are letting him give his "Roosting Chicken" at the University next Tuesday.
BTW, what is Megan's List?
I've got just a few drops of Cherokee blood running through my veins and I find Ward Churchill a phony.
But he has a piece of paper saying that he is for real. And his job is as a ethnic studies expert is predicated on it. Other than hating America, this man has no skills which would recommend him as a department head at a major university. Wait, that must mean...
"That'll get ya fired from teaching in an ethnic studies program."
I'm not so sure. He has possesses the one quality that is the gold standard in American acadamia: he hates America.
Nah, He's a fukowwee
Sexual Offenders Database. I'm not implying anything. I'm just saying I'm going to check...
I've seen pictures of him and he certainly looks like he could be of Native American ancestry. but I guess it's not so.....Ironic that CU is more likely to fire him for masquerading as an Indian than for his traitorous writings.
"...poisoning the minds of impressionable American youth for a living."
I thought that's what teaching assistants were for.
And we've heard about a piece of paper showing that he's a real @&&$h*le! That's more real!! : )
Not that you're implying anything, of course, but what would make you think of that?
I can't attest to his genealogy. The fact is that if anyone represents authentic American Indians, it is AIM. If this guy wasn't a Leftie, and therefore protected by the MSM, he'd be toast.
Tenured professors supply the Kool Aid. TA's stir the vat and portion it out...
I'm not implying anything of course, but the hair and the ears and his tenured status...well, judge for yourself.
"Tenured professors supply the Kool Aid. TA's stir the vat and portion it out..."
It appears that he has the same membership in the Keetoowah Tribe as Bill Clinton does.
Maybe Clinton could apply for Churchill's position at CU Boulder. They seem to have equivalent qualifications: they are both A-holes with honorary Keetoowah cards.
I heard on Fox today...forget which newscaster said it, but a mom wrote an e-mail to Fox saying that Churchill had poisoned their son's mind who has become an very liberal...sounded like they blamed Churchill for this.
Our colleges are not only ruining the students who attend their campuses....those students who graduate, and teach in elementary schools and high schools, are ruining young impressionable children by propagating the left-leaning liberal ideologies taught in college.
sent this link to Bill O'Reilly
blood in the water? chum the sharks....
They poison Socrates (arguably the greatest mind produced by Western Civilization) for "corrupting" the youth of Athens. We pay Churchill ( a man who has a masters in ethnic studies - you insert the groaning sound) to tell our kids that America got what it deserved on 9/11. Using the Socratic Method, do you see a problem here?
Hey buddy, Churchill is the scum of the earth, but it's pretty low comparing anybody who isn't a convicted child molester or lawyer to Clinton!
This guy is a fraud period.
He parades around vaunting his 'ethnicity'? Thats a red flag right away.
Stalin and Marx realized that the Communist political system would never be accepted based on merits. That's why they advocated controlling the media and acadamia. Until people were properly indoctrinated, they had the gulags...
Actually, I believe he may be from the "Wherthe fugarewe" tribe.
That's what I always say. Shakespeare, who had a knack for the psychology of the human mind said as much of those kinds of folks: "Methinks thou doth protesteth too much."
"blood in the water?"
More like a drop of water in the large puddle of blood...
That's how the Rats operate and IMHO, the National Education Association; those two outfits have already proven themselves to be nothing but socialists....and the NEA is out to get our children by having teachers be learned in the ways of "change agents" (by the very means those teachers were inculcated themselves).
"I'm part Choctaw somewhere. Maybe I should embrace it?"
Maybe? Dude, Churchill rode this fraud into a tenured position. I bet he made $150,000 plus a year, "taught" maybe three days a week for maybe an hour a day, got summers off, full medical benefits, the whole time soliciting lithe, young freshmans to come to his swanky pad and check out his dream catcher collection . Because he ahd a card saying he was an Amercian Indian and hated America. You better jump on that gravy train!
As Dwight Yokum has been known to say... "I ain't that lonely yet"
"nothing but socialists"
You are much to kind. There are stronger names for what they are...
Thanks for the ping. I knew about this guy a long time ago. He has some sort of cult following in Colorado, but most of the AIM people know that he is a fraud. I believe Russ Means once described him as an Indian-wannabe and liberal who was so ashamed of his "evil whiteness" that he had to concoct a fantasy of being a down-trodden minority to justify his hatred and whacko beliefs.
Pathetic slimeball. I sure hope he's not sleeping well these nights now that both the Right and Left are on to him. He would have been better off claiming he was an Arab. CAIR would have come to his rescue.;)
Hey Smart Guy, don't go showing of your erudition, what with the Shakespeare comment. Just because Churchill didn't get a real college degree doen't mean he ain't like...intelligent! He was smart enough to fool U of CO into a paying job!
I'm mostly Choctaw and all American. I get so tired of these leftists who continue to push the stereotype of Native Americans. They push the idea that all tribes are the same, that we all base our spirituality on some generic naturalist movement, that we all look the same way, that we all speak the same way, that our politics are one and the same. It's same old leftist song and dance, the ignorant inability to see people as individuals.
Ward Churchhill taught myyoungest and poisoned her mind. She wrote a great paper on what Indians could do to improve their plight. She did research on the casinos, alcoholism on reservations, etc. She recommeded they train their own to run casinos and not give outside gambling interests a cut, that they use the money to mainstream their young kids and treat their boozers. He gave her an F. She got a c in his course cause she had made a's on everything else. She hated the bastard. We heard about him non stop the entire semester she had him. I guess we are lucky but if I knew then what I know now, I would have made noise.
PS,,go to the ethnic studies department on the CU homepage. His vitae is nowhere on the site but the rest of his department has phds from yale, etc, good resumes from the places they went. He has a MA from some college I never heard of. I went to look it up and got distracted. He is a psychopath from everything I know of him.
I called CU today, I give them money twice a year because for the most part they werre wonderful to my daughter. I told them no more money till he was gone. We shall see.
