PUT SOME PRESSURE ON PROF CHURCHILL AND U OF C
ACT NOW: Please express your concerns about Professor Churchill by sending POLITE AND THOUGHTFUL emails to the Department of Ethnic Studies - The University of Colorado, Boulder, to UCs Board of Regents, to UCs Interim Chancellor, and to Colorados Governor. Please also contact Colorados state house members and U.S. House and Senate reps. Remember, being rude and hurling insults will get you nowhere. Intelligent and thoughtful comments will have an impact.

Just a few facts:
Most of the people who died in the Trade Center had little to do with Wall Street. It should be noted that,the World Trade Center was jointly owned by the State of New Jersey and New York, hardly the center of Capitalism. There were quite a few municipal workers who died because the State of New York occupied allot of the buildings.
Admittedly, the student who attended Hamilton and was on OReilly, father was involved with finance. His father was a municipal bond brokers broker. He sat three seats away from my uncle while they both worked at Cantor Fitzgerald. Mr. Capo traded municipal bonds. Municipal bonds like (for example) used to raise money for public housing for the poor and dorm rooms for college students in the US. By the way, none of the people at Canter Fitzgerald are allowed to use cell phones in their job. This has nothing to do with anything international. This Nutty professor should learn the facts. Id like to ask him how he sees the tie between raising money for some public housing in a place like Brooklyn has anything to do with the Middle East. By the way one of the biggest investors in municipal bonds is Teresa Heinz Kerry.
I apologize if she is not using the last name Kerry anymore. Their calls had to be made on a land based phones in order that all trades be recorded to be recorded. I also sure that Mr. Churchill never heard of Canter Fitzgerald before 9/11.
By the way these people do not make big money in New York.
Churchill, some politically-correct professor who would bristle at the thought of being associated with apartheid, nonetheless uses apartheid-like reasoning to devalue the humanness of September 11s dead.
So, according to Churchill, if someone worked in New Yorks World Trade Center, it made them a "little Eichmann." Were the 500 foreign nationals from 91 countries who were incinerated on 9/11/01 little Eichmanns?" How about the Dominican and Irish food service workers? What about the Jewish network technicians? How about the Muslim accountants? The Anglo-Saxon, Jewish, Presbyterian, Pakistani, Japanese, and Latino stock brokers? Were the brave firemen and policemen who sacrificed their lives to save others on 9/11 "Nazis?" What about the people who cleaned the toilets at the WTC? They were "Nazis?" The secretaries? The African-Americans?
I would ask Professor Churchill to please explain how 9/11 victims are categorized as sub-human "little Eichmanns." If a person is 1/8 stock broker, is he or she automatically marked for skyscraper death by jumbo-jet? South Africas apartheid laws had similar inanities that, while absolutely absurd, still held sway over a persons life or death. How is Churchills current belief system different than Hitlers, whom he criticizes? Hitler wanted to kill all the Jews, gays, and gypsies. Yet Churchill sees justice in Osama Bin Ladens plan to rid the world of Jews, Christians, and Shiites.
There are no words to describe- this man is just a waste of a human being.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have taken the time to read Professor Churchill's words and find them scurrilous and defaming of the people who died in the 9/11 attacks. It is by far the most hate-filled and hurtful of writings short of Mein Kampf that I have ever read. None of his assertions are based on any verifiable facts. If this is representative of the quality of his work in academia then he has severely short changed those eager young minds that came to learn and explore in the hallowed halls of higher learning.
Sadly, to associate this sort of supposed academic work his familiar name with the honored name of Churchill denigrates those revered historical names of eminence just by mere name association.
May I suggest that the best course of action may be not only censure but also termination with prejudice?
Why don't ya'll email the regents at the following email addresses: Jerryrutledge@adelphia.net ; Tommyjclay@aol.com ; Peter.Steinhauer@colorado.edu ; Regent.Carlisle@colorado.edu ; Regent.Hayes@colorado.edu ; Carrigan@colorado.edu ; Regent.Bosley@colorado.edu ; Regent.Schauer@colorado.edu ; Gail.Schwartz@colorado.edu
By that profs definition yes.
The alumni must withhold all donations until the university fires Churchill.
polite and thoughtful, please.
I share your reaction to this POS, but academia is so filled with this kind of scum, it would take a civil war to get rid of them all. (Hey, now there's an idea...)
Remember the scum at Columbia U who called for a "million Mogadishus?"
The real miracle is that so many of our young people go through four years of crap like that and come out relatively normal.
Write to the regents, but remember that they are the ones who control the university and allow this sort of scum to be hired in the first place.
I'm faintly reminded of my history professor who just last week claimed that the only reason the US government gave money to the Tsunami relief fund was so that we could set up sweatshops.
Thankfully I have a video camera.
With all the publicity that the new Mr. Churchill is getting, he may just run for high office in CO. He probably could sweep Boulder.
I have zero inclination to banter with them, and I believe that (your) replies are nothing more than an excuse to provide you with their excuses so that they can continue with their activities as normal.
Unless you believe that they have been truly, absolutely, and totally stupid.
And I deny that.
I have done my job. His action is shameful as a comment from Americans.
To Governor Owen
Ward Churchill doesn't do anything good for Indians. His writings about 9-11 make Indians look bad to people who don't know about Indians. Ward Churchill will make people prejudiced against Indians. Maybe that is even his goal, to isolate Indians. Here is what an Indian publication says about Mr. Churchill.
Indian people who are New Yorkers helped with the relief work after 9-11 like all Americans. A lot of Indian people actually build the skyscrapers in New York and are
probably not happy to see them bombed.
I hope the state will investigate Ward Churchill's teachings.
Our government has asked Saudi Arabia and Pakistan not to inculcate their children in philosophies of terrorism. Shouldn't we hold ourselves to the same standards?
I don't think Ward Hill can be a fair teacher because he would not be receptive to students who didn't share his violent and radical views. I would not want him evaluating my term papers.
Ward Churchill is inciting violence. Isn't that what we don't like about Bin Laden? Ward Church says we need more 9-11s. Isn't this just what Bin Laden thinks?
I read that Ward Churchill injured a woman named Carol Standing Elk. He allegedly got mad at her because she crossed him in his AIM politics.
I also read that Ward Churchill was once fired for sexual harrassment, but was reinstated after he sued.
I personally think that Ward Churchill is a far-left revolutionary who believes in violence and not democratic processes. He is working against our country while we are at war. He does not fairly represent Indians; he makes
Indians seem like terrorists.
I think he should be given a soap box.
