Apparently, someone has been fact-checking Ward's scholarship and finding that he's fabricated facts. See for yourself.
in two thirds of the nations of the world, this guy would be hanging from a tree limb or have had his hands sawed off by now
Anyone remember Michael Bellisiles? Here's a refresher link:
It really isn't that difficult to expose the left's lies these days. It might even be a fun hobby to destroy the careers of leftist academic frauds.
Nice work exposing the frauds of Bellisiles and this a-hole. Too bad people have to waste their time refuting the lies instead of doing original work that will add value to the world. But I guess we need cops, soldiers and academics to keep the riff raff in check so the rest of us can breath freely.
For sure we need cops and military!
I'm not sure if I read on this forum or not that someone though we should just ignore the guy, not give him his 15 minutes or now his 30 minutes of fame.
I don't think so any more. When the facts do not support their case, libs just pull them from thin air or exaggerate.
The Genocide That Wasnt: Ward Churchills Research Fraud
"When that war ended in 1763 (the Seven Years War), the French, ignoring their old allies, ceded to the British lands west of the Appalachians.... Under orders from British General Jeffrey Amherst, the commander of Fort Pitts gave the attacking Indian chiefs, with whom he was negotiating, blankets from the smallpox hospital. It was a pioneering effort at what is now called biological warfare. An epidemic soon spread among the Indian."
From Howard Zinn's, "A People's History of the United States"
Can't these guys get their stories straight?
OK, so maybe we can learn things from the customs of other countries.
This is the type of thing that can get a tenured faculty member fired. Of course the evidence would have to be that he intentionally perpertrated the fraud rather than was a victim of graduate students and research assistants.
This is going live on Medved-- check out KRLA -- Churchill won't appear but they got the student body pres.
The best sub-text here is that he has outraged most Native Americans who appear to be disowning him.
He claims he has 1/16th Cherokee blood - I seriously doubt that because he refuses to provide proof. One Freeper jokingly claimed 100% and wants his perks.
Your point about not ignoring him is correct - bring him to heel. Let's expose this phony and get him away from our impressionable students.
