MONDAY, Feb. 7, 2005, 2:31 p.m. 'Little Eichmanns' prof to speak here
Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor whose remarks comparing the victims of the World Trade Center attacks to a World War II Nazi war criminal, is scheduled to speak at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater on March 1, a university spokesman said. Churchill, chairman of Colorado's ethnic studies department, was invited to Whitewater by a group of Native American students.
Churchill was scheduled to speak last week at Hamilton College in upstate New York but administrators there cancelled the appearance, citing clear and present danger of violence.
His writing, titled, "Some People Push Back," describe the nearly 3,000 who died in the World Trade Center attacks as "Little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolph Eichmann, who helped Hitler with plans to exterminate Jews from Europe during World War II.

Just as a public service and to correct the record, of course. I'm sure they don't want to be spending their hard-earned student activity dollars on a white guy . . .
I guess the fact that he is no more a 'Native American' than I am doesn't matter to these students - And why should it? That little inconsistency in this guy's story is the absolute least of his trifling with the truth..
From what I know of University of Wisconsin students - they couldn't tell if the sun rose in the east or the west let alone be aware of the validity of this idiots heritage.
This isn't at the Madison campus, it's at the Whitewater campus (a little southeast of the people's republic).
"How, Red Brothers! You want'um any more fake Injun for pow-wow?
Seriously, man, we've hardly worked since F-Troop. We could use the bread."
Actually, this campus is pretty conservative. They have a strong business program here. Of course they have their kooks, but generally it's a conservative place.
That's what I had thought. I know about their business program (I'm closer to Milwaukee), so you're probably right. The timing of the announcement sure is interesting in view of the other information that's come to light.
I guess the littlest Eichmann is the one on the left. Her name was Juliana McCourt. She died on Flight 175, along with her mother, Ruth McCourt (pictured), and her mother's friend (Paige Hackel) who was on Flight 11.
I knew both of those women. One was a family friend.
Words cannot express my outrage at Ward Churchill or any institution that would give him a platform or provide him with even part of a living. May he never know a moment's peace.
UW-Stevens Point grad here. You're almost half right though. Was raised out on the prairie & ever since I've moved to the Big Woods, I've had problems knowing east from west but only when the sun isn't shining...
was invited to Whitewater by a group of Native American students.
Any idea how many NA's on the Whitewater campus? Up here at Stevens Point, there was a bare handful while I was enrolled...2001 grad.
Here's his article:
found at: http://www.kersplebedeb.com/mystuff/s11/churchill.html
"If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I'd really be interested in hearing about it."
His claim as a Keetoowah Band Cherokee has been discredited (by the Keetoowah). AIM specifically says that Churchill doesn't speak for them.
We'll have to disagree on Mr. Churchill.
Wheaton College, Norton Mass. had Ward Churchill scheduled as a speaker on March 29 th.
I sent them an e-mail and got this response.
Ward Churchill will not be speaking at Wheaton. He had been invited to participate in a panel discussion on conflict and genocide, but the college has rescinded its invitation.
Wheaton College, Norton MA
I don't understand.
What is your position regarding him?
Oh my, I'll bet you think Christopher Columbus day shouldn't be celebrated anymore either. You think American Indians think we were systematically committing genocide? Did you just come over from DU or what?
I'm surprised they invited him in the first place. Wheaton College is about as conservative college as they come.
I can believe that too..Sad..
