Prof: More 9/11s May Be Necessary
CBS ^ | Feb. 6, 2005

Posted on 02/07/2005 2:46:52 PM PST by swilhelm73

(CBS/AP) A professor who likened World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi suggested to a magazine that more terror attacks may be necessary to radicalize Americans to fight the misuse of U.S. power.

In an interview Ward Churchill gave with Satya magazine, he was asked about the effectiveness of protests of U.S. policies and the Iraq war, and responded: "One of the things I've suggested is that it may be that more 9/11s are necessary."

The interview prompted Gov. Bill Owens to renew his call for Churchill's firing.

"It's amazing that the more we look at Ward Churchill, the more outrageous, treasonous statements we hear from Churchill," Owens said.

"I don't believe I owe an apology," Churchill said Friday on CNN's "Paula Zahn Now" program — his first public comments since the University of Colorado began a review that could lead to his dismissal.

Meanwhile, Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., and Eastern Washington University canceled plans for Churchill to speak on campus, citing public safety concerns. Stephen Jordan, president of Eastern Washington University, declined Friday to say whether specific threats had been made.

Churchill defended the essay in which he compared those killed in the Sept. 11 attack to "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who organized Nazi plans to exterminate European Jews. He said the victims were akin to U.S. military operations' collateral damage — or innocent civilians mistakenly killed by soldiers.

"I don't know if the people of 9-11 specifically wanted to kill everybody that was killed," he told Zahn. "It was just worth it to them in order to do whatever it was they decided it was necessary to do that bystanders be killed. And that essentially is the same mentality, the same rubric."

In an interview published Saturday in the Rocky Mountain News, Churchill added, "This was a gut response opinion speech written in about four hours. It's not completely reasoned and thought through."

Churchill said his speech had been misinterpreted. "I never called for the deaths of millions of Americans," he said.

The furor over Churchill's essay erupted last month after he was invited to speak at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. The speech was later canceled.

Churchill, who recently resigned as chairman of the ethnic studies department but remains a tenured professor, said he would sue if he were dismissed.

Satya identifies Churchill as a Cherokee and a longtime native rights activist. The magazine's Web site says, "One of Churchill’s areas of expertise is the history of the U.S. government’s genocide of Native Americans—the chronic violation of treaties and systematic extermination of North American indigenous populations."

The only problem with his claim of being an Indian, is that the Indians say he is not one of them.

I read today that there is a question regarding Churchill being an Indian at all! When are they going to just get rid of this trash? I think I heard they will review his speeches etc for 30 days? All you need to read or hear is the comments he made about 9/11

Yes, both AIM and the tribe he claims to be a member of have come forward and said he is not an American Indian...

Typical sleight of hand to defend yourself by objecting to a misrepresentation that was never made.

this story has gone on for almost 2 weeks.

the reason it has legs, is that some of the mainstream media agree with churchill.

some of the radical left in the media believe that the u.s. is responsible for the world's problems. if the we had not invaded iraq, for example, everything would be ok.

And those that don't are purposely, and desperately, trying to keep the statements of the pro-Jihadi left out of the press.

If we have another 9-11 it will indeed radicalize Americans...but not the way this idiot seems to think it will.

Don't dismiss him; close the Ethnic Studies Department. Tenured faculty can be laid off if their department is closed.

I suggest that we lock him up for his own safety and lose the key.

One has to remark on his brazen stupidity. If America was such the nightmare he believes it to be, he would be in prison or worse, for airing such views. Not only is he not in prison, he is being well paid for his nonsense - something he would find difficult to do elsewhere.

He is a prime example of an "educated idiot".

I wonder what "Ethnic Studies" means anyway. Surely not history.

Ha! Good point, you'd think he'd have caught on to that little fact.

This evil psycho dude completely faked his credentials. He is NOT a Native American as he falsely represented to whatever hellhole taxpayer funded Colorado "University" he scammed.

This is legal grounds for removing his tenure.

The universities of America are infested with these rejects and losers. Their sole purpose in life (other than acting out their psychoses) is to poison the minds of young skulls full of mush, and recruit kids into following their whack-job agendas.

This is legal grounds for removing his tenure. My son ended up in a "Women Studies" course this semester (apparently hoping to meet babes). He fled when found out it was, in his words, "Hairy Ugly Lesbo Recruiting and Man Hating 101."

He really is gathering up a lot of bad karma.

Guess he figures no one will do anything as long as he is in the limelight.

You may be right that the university has sufficient grounds for firing him. But I am hoping for more: that the university will get rid of him and his department.

this should work like those people who have medals on their uniform-wall and did not serve. Time to throw the bum out for lying.
