ROOSTING CHICKENS -- Ward Churchill's Goose Is Cooked!
ICONOCLAST ^ | By Lin Anderson

Posted on 02/15/2005 3:22:34 PM PST by clintonbaiter

The controversy actually erupted in late January when students at Hamilton College in -- of all places -- Clinton, New York, protested a scheduled appearance by Churchill based upon assertions he had made in an essay entitled "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens."

"As for those in the World Trade Center," Churchill wrote, "well, really, let's get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break."

Leaving aside for the moment the burning question of whether "gimme a break" is proper professorial nomenclature, Churchill continued blithely smearing the dead by declaring that Trade Center workers were -- surprisingly enough -- "little Eichmanns," charged with greasing the wheels of an imperial -- well, you know the drill. If you don't know the drill, scan a few Students for a Democratic Society pamphlets from 1969 or thereabouts. The drill hasn't changed much, and nor has Churchill, judging from his official faculty photograph......

"Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens"

That was the title of the offending publication Churchill wrote. Now, I've said this before a few times, but isn't the irony of the title inescapable with regard to his current situation?

The people pushed back, and this guy's invective has come home to roost.

Brilliant piece - thanks for posting. It is difficult to imagine a sense in which Churchill is not a talentless phony, his signal scholastic virtue apparently the ability to slosh the rubes with footnotes. His portion of my generation has taken to itself the opposite of the Beatles' old advice "hate is all you need." It has, in fact, served Mr. Churchill very well.

I kind of admire Churchill - he plays liberal academics like a violin. His Indian radical chic act has parleyed a masters degree in nothing from a no-name college into cush six-figure tenured position at a Big Twelve school. And he fleeces liberals around the country for four large a pop just to listen to him rant.

Panamanians of Indian or mixed blood have a name for those of full European blood - rabe blancos, or white butts. So I think we should call Churchill Chief Pale Buttocks...

I think he should be sent as an unarmed leftist peace envoy to meet with "insurgents" where he can share his feelings for their plight. Of course he will have to go unescorted by the American military, Media or security.

He's a financially well off white American, why wouldn't the terrorists want to meet with him and dialog.

Although this article is humorous, there is a darker side to the Ward Churchills of the world and an academy that nurtures them.

I have a stepchild who attended UC Santa Cruz. She therefore received an education that was decidedly polemical. Consequently, to her and her boyfriend who also attended UCSC, there is simply no question that Israel is an evil intrusion on the natural rights of the Palestinian people and principally responsible for the turmoil in the Middle East, that global warming caused by human activity is beyond question, and that Fahrenheit 911 is a documentary worth seeing. To the best of my knowledge, she did not harbor such views before attending UCSC.

Some time ago she and I were engaged in discussion, and she repeated the canard that the United States distributed smallpox infested blankets to Indians on the Great Plains. Although I have long been a student of history, I had not heard that story and was frankly puzzled by it. Now, thanks to the controversy over Ward Churchill's 911 remarks and the articles about him that have been circulated on the Net, I know that he is the source of this despicable lie. I question whether this particular falsehood would have reached UCSC had it not borne the imprimatur of being the product of a professor at a major research university.

The moral here is that, when the academy ceases to be scholarly and instead becomes politicized in its staffing, structure, research, and course offerings, it ceases to produce scholars and instead produces ill-educated polemecists.

I love it when the fakes are exposed, much like Prof J Ellis of Mount Holyoke, who taught a course in Vietnamese and American culture.

Ellis drew heavily on his experiences as a platoon leader in Viet Nam.....the only problem was, He spent his three years in the Army teaching history at the US Military Academy at West Point.

When all this came to light in 2001, he was suspended for a year and gave up an endowed chair.

Many in the academic world didn't have a problem with a liar being in a position of influence with Ellis; I fear Churchill will also receive a slap on the wrist, and be allowed to continue as before

The smallpox infested blanket story gets around, and is to be found almost everywhere. It's very popular among the politically correct. Apparently the story goes back to the 19th century. It's the kind of thing that is difficult to disprove. (You can't prove a negative.) But even if it happened--which I doubt--it was not a common practice and it would have played a very small part in the diminishment of the Indian.

Indians were susceptible to various European disaeases, which often produced deadly epidemics among them. That was simply bad luck, not deliberate policy.

Human history all over the world is a history of migrations, invasions, and population displacements. Until modern times it was part of the normal course of events.

Should we blame the Chinese or the Arabs for the Black Death, which wiped out maybe half the European population in the 14th century? There really isn't much point. It's better to get on with it and deal with the situation, instead of whining.

Not really in this case. We have eyewitness accounts by the people that were there. Here is a link to a pretty good essay on the subject. http://hal.lamar.edu/~browntf/Churchill1.htm

This wouldn't even past the smell test a hundred years ago. In the 19th century not even the white man could control smallpox. Just who do you suppose inoculated these blankets and then pasted them out to Native Americans. Even if smallpox wasn't one of the most dangerous diseases of their time it is insane to believe, anyone would get within a mile of being contaminated.
 
This is how the left gets away with many of their absolute B.S. stories. The only people who will believe them are the one's who want to. Any one else will use elemental logic, as in a 6th grader, to come to a conclusion of the truth.
 
Churchill is headed down the proverbial toilet fast. Using the reputation of Native Americans to ensure his appointment of tenure will surely cause him to come out smelling like he actually does, just like an over-flowing cesspool.
