Whom does Churchill work for? (Moron works for the "technocrats")
Denver Post ^ | 02/11/2005 | Jim Spencer

Posted on 02/12/2005 8:26:23 AM PST by RightInEastLansing

...snip CU officials say roughly 15 percent of Churchill's $92,000-a-year salary - $13,800 - comes from state tax dollars. The remaining 85 percent - $78,200 - comes from tuition. But about 74 percent of that tuition - $57,868 - comes from out-of-state students, CU says.

Ward Churchill gets paid plenty by the rich parents of kids from the country's major metropolitan areas who can afford CU's hefty nonresident bills.

He owes his professional existence to the very "technicians of empire" he likened to "little Eichmanns."

So 90%-100% of his pay comes from agents of evil imperialism. Better he live on $5,000 per year and have a clear conscience.

All of that money is fungible... Nothing he teaches adds any value to the quality of the scholarship at the school, and is likely something that students 'pick-up' when they get there and is not something that sells the school to prospective students.

Since the school would likey be better off spending the money elsewhere, they are subsidizing him and his hatred with tax dollars... If they didn't have those tax dollars they would not even have the program -- 100% of this man's pay comes from taxpayers.

--Colorado University needs a complete housecleaning.

The Rocky Mountain News reports this morning that two-thirds of the half million dollars spent on liquor by the school in the last five years was spent at a liquor store owned by the resigned athletic director--coincidence , I suppose?

Churchill has some power because of the AIM Dog Soldiers who are the security/enforcement arm of AIM. They cause violence on the reservations and may do the same thing in Boulder. They are AIM's Brown Shirts.

These Dog Soldiers are also drug dealers and burglars.

The police and FBI need to find if there are Dog Soldiers Boulder. The Indians see Churchill has AIM security around him when he speaks. People are afraid of Churchill. Probably there are Dog Soldiers in his classes and all over the school and town.

If there are no Dog Soldiers around, people won't be afaid to exercise their free speech.

The Dog Soldiers don't just protect AIM leaders, they also enforce what AIM orders.

Not really. Riefenstahl was a genial filmmaker, too bad her bosses were criminal yahoos. Ward is just an idiot.

Exactly as soon as the tuition is paid, it become money that belongs to CO tax payers. I am pretty willing to be that they don't allow contractors that do business with CU to ignor the state bid regulations even though a high percentage of their bills are paid with "tuition" generated funds.

Is this guy really from any indiginous Indian group? Why does he look like a guy with a European heritage who's running around with long hair trying to be a "wannabee."

Has anybody looked into this bitter, aging hippie to see if there's any authenticity to his "heritage"?

I feel bad that this current fuss over his stupidity is going to gin up some speaking gigs and book and magazine invitations. Other than his bitterness and narrow mindedness, isn't he just a non-descript, worthless, useless professor hiding behind a diploma or two?

Funny you should ask that. Churchill is Ann Coulter's target of the week:

SITTING BULL-S***
February 9, 2005
http://www.anncoulter.com/

If Ward Churchill loses his job teaching at the University of Colorado, he could end up giving Howard Dean a real run for his money to head the Democratic National Committee.

Churchill already has a phony lineage and phony war record — just like John Kerry! (Someone should also check out Churchill's claim that he spent Christmas 1968 at Wounded Knee.) In 1983, Churchill met with Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and later felt it necessary to announce that his group, the American Indian Movement, "has not requested arms from the Libyan government." In 1997, he was one of the "witnesses" who spoke at a "Free Mumia" event in Philadelphia on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Come to think of it, Churchill could give Hillary a run for her money. All that's left for Churchill to do now is meet with Al Sharpton and kiss Suha Arafat.

Churchill's claim that he is an Indian isn't an incidental boast, like John Kerry pretending to be Irish. It is central to his career, his writing, his political activism. Churchill has been the co-director of the American Indian Movement of Colorado, the vice chairperson of the American Indian "Anti-Defamation" Council, and an associate professor and coordinator of American Indian Studies at the University of Colorado.

By Churchill's own account, a crucial factor in his political development was "being an American Indian referred to as 'chief' in a combat unit" in Vietnam, which made him sad. This is known to con men everywhere as a "two-fer."

In addition to an absence of evidence about his Indian heritage, there is an absence of evidence that he was in combat in Vietnam. After the POW Network revealed that Churchill had never seen combat, he countered with this powerful argument: "They can say whatever the hell they want. That's confidential information, and I've never ordered its release from the Department of Defense. End of story." Maybe we should ask John Kerry to help Churchill fill out a form 180.

In one of his books, "Struggle for the Land," Churchill advances the argument that one-third of America is the legal property of Indians. And if you believe Churchill is a real Indian, he also happens to be part owner of the Brooklyn Bridge.

In his most famous oeuvre, the famed 9/11 essay calling the 9/11 World Trade Center victims "little Eichmanns," he said "Arab terrorists" — his quotes — had simply "responded to the massive and sustained American terror bombing of Iraq" by giving Americans "a tiny dose of their own medicine."

Having blurted out "Iraq" in connection with 9/11 in a moment of pique, Churchill had to backpedal when the anti-war movement needed to argue that Iraq had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Arab terrorism. He later attached an "Addendum" to the essay saying that the 9/11 attack was not only payback for Iraq, but also for various other of this country's depredations especially against "real Indians" (of which he is not one).

In light of the fact that Churchill's entire persona, political activism, curriculum vitae, writings and university positions are based on his claim that he's an Indian, it's rather churlish of him to complain when people ask if he really is one. But whenever he is questioned about his heritage, Churchill rails that inquiries into his ancestry are "absolutely indefensible."

Churchill has gone from claiming he is one-eighth Indian "on a good day" to claiming he is "three-sixteenths Cherokee," to claiming he is one-sixty-fourth Cherokee through a Revolutionary War era ancestor named Joshua Tyner. (At least he's not posing as a phony Indian math professor.) A recent investigation by The Denver Post revealed that Tyner's father was indeed married to a Cherokee. But that was only after Joshua's mother –- and Churchill's relative -– was scalped by Indians.

By now, all that's left of Churchill's claim to Indian ancestry is his assertion: "It is just something that was common knowledge in my family." (That, and his souvenir foam-rubber "tommyhawk" he bought at Turner Field in Atlanta.)

Over the years, there were other subtle clues the university might have noticed.

Churchill is not in the tribal registries kept since the 1800s by the federal government.

No tribe will enroll him –- a verification process Churchill dismisses as "poodle papers" for Indians.

In 1990, Churchill was forced to stop selling his art as "Indian art" under federal legislation sponsored by then-representative — and actual Indian! — Ben Nighthorse Campbell, that required Indian artists to establish that they are accepted members of a federally recognized tribe. Churchill responded by denouncing the Indian artist who had exposed him. (Hey, does anybody need 200 velvet paintings of Elvis playing poker with Crazy Horse?)

In the early '90s, he hoodwinked an impecunious Cherokee tribe into granting him an "associate membership" by telling them he "wrote some books and was a big-time author." A tribal spokeswoman explained: He "convinced us he could help our people." They never heard from him again — yet another treaty with the Indians broken by the white man. Soon thereafter, the tribe stopped offering "associate memberships."

A decade ago, Churchill was written up in an article in News From Indian Country, titled, "Sovereignty and Its Spokesmen: The Making of an Indian." The article noted that Churchill had claimed membership in a scrolling series of Indian tribes, but over "the course of two years, NFIC hasn't been able to confirm a single living Indian relative, let alone one real relative that can vouch for his tribal descent claim."

When real Indians complained to Colorado University in 1994 that a fake Indian was running their Indian Studies program, a spokeswoman for the CU president said the university needed "to determine if the position was designated for a Native American. And I can't answer that right now." Apparently it was answered in Churchill's favor since he's still teaching.

If he's not an Indian, it's not clear what Churchill does have to offer a university. In his book, "A Little Matter of Genocide: Holocaust and Denial in the Americas, 1492 to the Present," Churchill denounces Jews for presuming to imagine the Holocaust was unique. In the chapter titled "Lie for Lie: Linkages between Holocaust Deniers and Proponents of the Uniqueness of the Jewish Experience in World War II," Churchill calls the Third Reich merely "a crystallization" of Christopher Columbus' ravages of his people (if he were an Indian).

His research apparently consisted of watching the Disney movie "Pocahontas," which showed that the Indians meant the European settlers no harm. (That's if you don't count the frequent scalpings.)

Even the credulous Nation magazine -– always on red alert for tales of government oppression –- dismissed Churchill's 1988 book "Agents of Repression" about Cointelpro-type operations against the American Indian Movement, saying the book "does not give much new information" and "even a reader who is inclined to believe their allegations will want more evidence than they provide." If The Nation won't buy your anti-U.S. government conspiracy theories, Kemosabe, it's probably time to pack up the old teepee and hit the trail of tears.

In response to the repeated complaints from Indians that a phony Indian was running CU's Indian Studies program, Churchill imperiously responded: "Guess what that means, guys? I'm not taking anyone's job, there wouldn't be an Indian Studies program if I wasn't coordinating it. ... They won't give you a job just because you have the paper." This white man of English and Swiss-German descent apparently believes there are no actual Indians deserving of his position at CU. (No wonder the Indians aren't crazy about him.)

As long as we're all agreed that there are some people who don't deserve jobs at universities, why isn't Churchill one of them?

And the technocrats at CU Boulder say "we can only be served
by having an open and honest dialog as we move foreward together."They promise they will perform a "thorough examination of Professor Churchill's writings,speeches, tape
recordings,and other works. To determine if he overstepped his bounds as a faculty member."They are "obliged to carefuly ballance th eproteciton afforded by the First
Amendment as well as follow specific University rules and processes."My response was I am not a diplomat Nor a dunce
and find it very sad that there are NO Patriotic staff at
CU Boulder of high ethical and moral character brave enough to stand up to this Fraud.

Not really. Riefenstahl was a genial filmmaker, too bad her bosses were criminal yahoos. Ward is just an idiot.

She was also quite a visionary. Her movie "Truimph of the Will" is awe enducing in it's cinematography.

There is a key difference between Leni Riefenstahl's propagandistic support of Hitler compared to the support Ward Churchill expressed for the terrorists of 9/11.

Consider what would have happened to Churchill if:

He had been a member of Russian Academia and had publicly praised Hitler during the siege of Stalingrad,

He had been a member of German Academia and had publicly praised the allies during the bombings of Hamburg and Dresden,

He had been a member of American Academia and had praised the bombing of Pear Harbor, or had cheered at the American defeats at Corregidor and Wake Island, and then justified the Bataan death march as the "little guy striking back."

I disagree with Riefenstahl's view of Hitler and the Nazi regime, but remember, she was supporting her own leader and her own nation. Churchill is more akin to Benedict Arnold than to Leni Riefenstahl.

Now, when you say "AIM", I hope you are talking about the Denver "AIM" idiots, and not the Grand Governing Council and NAIM... I doubt the GGC is providing him bodyguards... No, these aren't the infamous Dog Soldiers - these are CHurchill's own thugs from his local "AIM" (I use that term loosely) group...

Those thugs are Ward Churchill's bodyguards - they are NOT A.I.M., and are not "Dog Soldiers", no matter what they may call themselves... There is only on A.I.M., and the "A.I.M" group in Denver that Ward Churchill fronts is as much of a fraud as Churchill is... The "Autonomous A.I.M" groups are NOT the American Indian Movement - they are the result of a split some time back, with Russell Means and Ward Churchill going off on their own and forming the "Autonomous AIM Chapters" or some such nonsense...

No, those thugs are merely thugs. Period. They aren't fit to shine a real Dog Soldiers' (Cheyenne warrior cociety of old) shoes... if Dog Soldiers wore shoes, that is...

I don't know where Snapple is getting this crap, but as someone who has relatives in A.I.M., I can say with all honesty that the only "Dog Soldiers" were the Cheyenne warrior society, and a fabricated F.B.I. "group" back in the 70s...

" To:
All AIM Chapters, Representatives, members, Indian organizations and people and Organizations in Solidarity with Indian People


"From:
Vernon Bellecourt,
National Representative and Founding Board member American Indian Movement

"Date: August 7,1995
"This memorandum should be considered by all interested persons and organizations as official notice that a person identifying himself as Bobby Castillo is not now nor in the past a leader, representative, or member of the American Indian Movement (AIM).
"Bobby Castillo, after he was released from federal prison, showed up at the office of The International Indian Treaty Council in San Francisco, California offering his services as a part-time volunteer.

"Almost immediately upon his arrival, the staff at IITC began to have some serious concerns regarding a pattern of disturbing and disruptive incidents involving Mr. Castillo. For these reasons on December 1, 1993 Bobby Castillo was expelled from IITC activities and office. IITC is the International diplomatic and political arm of the American Indian Movement.

"Mr. Castillo then self-proclaimed himself a leader in the American Indian Movement. Which fraudulent representation, he continues to perpetrate nationally and internationally. We continue to get reports from friends and supporters nationally and internationally on how he disrupts and distorts the true philosophy of the American Indian Movement.

"Bobby Castillo is a phony, fraud, and a wannabee. According to people who know him, he has always identified with his Hispanic roots. Only upon release from prison did he began to identify with an Indian tribe.

"More serious, he is one of approximately fourteen persons, some the targets of American Indian Movement Internal and External Security ongoing investigations as being agent/operatives for the FBI/CIA attempts to divide and destroy the American Indian Movement.

"Along with the following suspected government agents, conspirators and/or collaborators or dupes, Bobby Castillo, David Hill, Ward Churchill, Russell Means, Glen Morris, Bob Robideaux, Joe Locust Sr., Sharon Venne, George Martin, Donald Grinde Jr., Dian Million and Shelly Davis have tried to divide and destroy the American Indian Movement.

"By declaring the existence of a so called confederation of autonomous american indian movement, they have been able to dupe several Indian people and communities into playing into their game of dividing the movement.

"These persons whom are misled are requested to contact the National Office of the American Indian Movement for official sanctioning and recognition.

"Bobby Castillo has been put on notice that he is to cease and desist from fraudulently representing The American Indian Movement. we ask all American Indian Movement members, friends, supporters and organizations world wide to assist us in our efforts to isolate Bobby Castillo and the listed co-conspirators and/or collaborators.

"If you have information on any of these individuals write, telephone, or fax."
