Students sue CU to hear Churchill speak
daily camera ^ | February 8, 2005 | Camera staff

Posted on 02/08/2005 10:12:21 AM PST by AdamSelene235

A University of Colorado student group filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Denver this morning seeking a preliminary injunction against the university to allow embattled professor Ward Churchill to speak on campus.

A hearing on the motion is set for 4 p.m., said David Rhone, a spokesman for the group, CU Students for Churchill.

Churchill was to speak at 7 p.m. today in the Glenn Miller Ballroom. However, late Monday, CU officials canceled the speech, citing safety concerns.

"We are disappointed in the university for canceling professor Churchill’s lecture scheduled for tonight in the University Memorial Center," Rhone said in a statement today. "Many other, more controversial figures have spoken on campus and the university’s blanket statement regarding the safety of professor Churchill and students is simply not a valid reason to cancel this planned event."

The student group is represented by attorney David Lane. He could not be reached for comment this morning.

He has already infected the minds of many students and must be destroyed!

These punks are the same ones who would riot if someone like Falwell or Shlafly were ever invited on campus, and they would never see their hypocrisy.

A bit of an insight into the entitlement culture.
Any bets it never even crossed their minds to put up a few bucks of their own and go rent a hall somewhere?

I wouldn't worry about them too much. I knew a lot of students with that sort of outlook on life when I was in college back in the 80's. They hated America, hated Reagan and everything he stood for, etc. Then the poor unprepared saps graduated and had to get jobs, pay their bills, etc. Many of them are conservatives now.

I love what's happening up there, and not just that Churchill will likely lose his job. It forces these braindead students to look closely at what they think are their "deeply held convictions". Some will see the cliff they're headed towards and slam on the brakes. They'll at least moderate their ideology, if not begin to see how flat out wrong they truly are. Others will go creening over the edge. Either way, we win. We either gain newly educated converts, or we can more easily identify the loons. Thank you, Ward Churchill, for your rank stupidity, which makes my life easier, and much more entertaining.

I only hope that very extreme cases like this give parents/taxpayers a better sense of what's happening in "higher education" in this country. But they might do better to remember that "I Am Charlotte Simmons" is not really fiction. When you take a bunch of people facing serious challenges from their hormones and place them in the care of vicious people who are set on corrupting them, you get college life in the USA today.

who says communism is dead
it appears to be alive and well at Colorado!

"we demand that our hate America leader be heard"

I guess Coloradans didn't see or hear what happened on 9/11...

Gotta love the irony here. First, the lefties at the school cancel the event because of "security concerns" that weren't really there. Then, the lefty students sue the school for "protecting" them!

Even more ironic is this crypto-Marxist Indian wannabe requires the protection of civil society so that he may advocate the destruction of that very same civil society.

Simple solution; as a condition for that fool being allowed to speak, the audience should FIRST have to sit through an equivalent amount of time watching the videos of (and while) what happened with the twin towers o 9/11.

I think he should not be allowed to speak anywhere unless family members of the 9/11 victims are also represented.

There's a right to face your accuser in this country.

The snowball seen here in Colorado was first built in Clinton NY then Norton, Mass., Cheney, Wash.,and now has grown to massive proportions. On its current trajectory it is due to hit Ward Churchill while cleaning out his Colorado campus office.

Obviously taught by their parents that if you don't get what you want, throw a tantrum, or sue! I think there is a good argument for mandatory military service here.

No thanks, I don't believe I'd want Mr. Churchill or his students watching my back.

Some chick that claimed to be David "nancy boy" Rhone from the article just contacted me via Freepmail. I think she was trying to cruise for a date.
