1/16th Cherokee, eh ?
Ward, the poster boy of commies who hate America and everything it stands for...
who says communism is dead! LOL
it sure isn't dead at American colleges and universities!
It's about time that Americans woke up and started rattling some cages at the colleges and universities that American taxpayers support!
"NO ANTI-AMERICANS NEED APPLY!"
The more I read about this guy, the more I believe he's mentally unstable.
..."He originally wrote this story to inflame the emotions of a jury. publishes the bulk of his essays in small left-wing presses or in obscure journals that lack a rigorous peer review. He is writing for a non-specialist audience that takes him at his word."...
Et tu Eason Jordan? Et tu Dan Rather? Et tu MSM?
Article is brilliant from top to bottom..
I attended law school at a small Midwest university. One of the courses was taught by the local Indian Studies prof. He was not of Indian (NA) origin but he seemed to think he was (I must say, these are my perceptions only).
He would cry when talking of the plight of the Indian and just how badly they had been treated (no argument there). However his concepts of what to do to correct the misdeeds of the past were totally out of the world. The bottom line was that white man (white Anglo European) was the root of all evil. Just hated himself for the evils brought by his (our) forefathers).
It almost appears these people get so tangled in the issue, they become unable to separate themselves from the fictions and embrace any and all information whether fact or fiction. In doing so, they become part of the problem.
It is almost a certainty that frauds such as inhabit these "Ethnic Studies" programs, Women's Studies and Black Studies are guilty of numerous fireable offenses. Examining their frauds and lies are the best way to attack them and expose thiem for the crooks they are.
These programs should be defunded to stop the funding of anti-American propaganda and pro-Terrorist support.
Asshill is a charlatan pure and simple . The man is a disgrace to both white and native Americans pure and simple and he ought to be given white the Amish call being 'shunned' or at West Point 'the Silence'.
Amazing story. His words are going to finally catch up with him.
brown's been on churchill's trail for a long time.
the "oppositional identity" explains a lot of leftist radicalim today.
no matter what the issue in america, they take the opposite view, and drive it to an extreme, no matter how illogical. from this they gain their leftist "oppositional identity" and tenure.
Churchill's fraudulent scholarship alone is reason enough to fire him from the university.
Churchill is no different than other liberal revisionists molding "history" to fit their delusions.
Maybe we can't get Churchill fired, but we can certainly make sure he's discredited as the fraud that he is...
The treatment of the aboriginals by the government of the U.S. was a fairly straightforward military conquest, full of atrocities (the Nez Perce, the Cherokee, Sand Creek, etc.) and leaving us little of which to be proud. But it did not include biological warfare, nor was it an organized attept to wipe out American Indians. It is important not to ignore it, but it is also important not to simply make stuff up.
I have heard the smallpox blankets story many times and I'm ashamed to say I believed it. It's quite a revelation to learn the source.
He also came from Sangamon State University, a Marxist school set up by anti-War protesters from the Vietnam era and Woodstock leftovers. Sangamon didn't have a grading system nor traditional curricula. What's also strange is that they didn't appear to have a Bachelor's degree program at the time that Ward Churchill claims to have gotten his... details, details...
THIS HAS BEEN SHAMELESSY LIFTED FROM ANOTHER SITE:
In 1970 Sangamon State University, the smallest of Illinois' 12 state universities, was a different kind of place. Many students were not graded, for example, but received individualized evaluations instead. There were no large classes. No deans or department chairs--in fact, no departments. Interdisciplinary courses were the norm. Faculty were hired for their interest in teaching--without teaching assistants--and had no publish-or-perish requirement. SSU was designated "the public affairs university of Illinois" at a time when public affairs, for many of the faculty at least, meant opposing the war in Vietnam and devising alternatives to mainstream institutions. It was an upper-division institution designed for older students transferring in from community colleges and traditional four-year institutions less suited to their needs; the average age of undergraduates was over 30. Faculty and students who were around at the time describe those days with obvious affection.
In the interests of truth in advertising, though, SSU might more accurately have been deemed a university with at best radical potential and at worst radical pretensions. In hindsight, its initial design was flawed. From the very beginning it was vulnerable both to the external pressures of the market and to reactionary local elites and political conservatives in the state legislature and the governor's office. The radical interpretation that some of the new faculty and students had given to the "public affairs mandate" they had authorized came as a surprise. Within two years of the school's founding, SSU's administrators began to purge policies and personnel that stood in the way of normalization, beginning more than two decades of struggle between competing visions of what kind of university Sangamon was to be. Inevitable faculty debate over educational policy has almost always allowed administrators to selectively claim they were merely responding to those faculty desires most in keeping with their agenda, such as the conversion to a four year university. With the recent transition from SSU to UIS putting the administration and its faculty supporters firmly in control, the initial radical potential has now been almost totally gutted.
Is Churchill's middle name "Bellesiles"??? Their scholarly veracity seems quite similar.
While I despise tenure sometimes I also believe in the First Amendment and in academic freedom. No professor should ever be fired for expressing an unpopular thought; that's the essence of the First Amendment and academic inquiry. But propagating demonstrable lies is counter to every principle of the Academy. If liars are allowed to fluourish under the protection of tenure the institution will collapse. I now believe Ward Churchill is toast. It's time to go after more of these academic frauds, and there are some who have very high profiles.
