Embattled Colorado Professor Files Complaint Against Texas Detractor

Embattled Colorado Professor Files Complaint Against Texas Detractor
The Associated Press
Published: Jun 9, 2005 BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, whose essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to Nazis led to an investigation into his scholarship and ethnicity, has filed a complaint against one of his accusers.

Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s.

In an e-mail to The Denver Post Wednesday, Brown said Churchill was attempting to block him from submitting a more detailed analysis of Churchill's work.

Churchill ignited a controversy when he compared some victims in the World Trade Center to Adolf Eichmann, who orchestrated the Holocaust. University officials concluded he could not be fired for the comments, but they launched an investigation into allegations that he plagiarized or fabricated research and lied about being an American Indian.

Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, has denied the charges. A CU faculty committee is reviewing the charges and could recommend that he be fired.

His attorney, David Lane, confirmed that Churchill filed a complaint against Brown but denied it was an attempt to silence him.

A Lamar University spokesman said administrators were reviewing Churchill's complaint to decide whether it warrants an investigation. They have not released a copy of the complaint.

Don't you just LOVE when a "radical..anti -establishment" Leftist, hires a high priced lawyer and uses the legal system of the military-industrail complex? The irony befuddles even my fine canine, Lola, who said to me, "WHAT?"

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Liberals never cease to amaze me.

He wouldn't last 2 hours at Burger King. It's the private sector -- they expect results!

Scratch that idea. Better to photoshop WC w/ a 'Will Lie For Food' sign in a Home Depot parking lot. With his attitude, Churchill wouldn't last the day at BK. Either he'd get fired for being nasty to the customers or a customer would go postal on him.

Back to his old tricks of intimidation. Let's hope Brown doesn't stop looking into Churchill's scholarship.

What does a "liberal" have to do get fired?

Besides the fact that most leftist loons WANT 2 get fired so they can file lawsuits and win damages....

If it weren't so tragic it would've been funny

I believe that the "reservation" for his kind ain't no tribal land. It's called "the trailer park".

This brings back memories. I attended Lamar University (back then, it was Lamar College) to get 18hrs of required credits to enter nursing school.

The Lamar mascot was a Cardinal--and we actually called the college "Pecker Tech".--LOL! (I can't believe I just typed that.)

Anyway, I'm glad that the Lamar prof is doing this--I would love it if he were instrumental in bringing WC down.

Anyone who has followed all the misconduct Churchill has committed can only be totally amazed that he is not fired YET !!!!

The tenured professor "industry" is such a scam if guys like Churchill can not be fired.

the more i think about it, the less i like the ap headline:

"detractor" is a negative word.

in actuality, the texas "detractor" is a scholar who is debunking churchill.

churchill is the negative person.

Even a job at Burger King should be out of the reach of this moronic fraud.He definitely has some serious mental problems that probably stem from doing way too many hits of acid.Only in a university could someone lie his way into a lifetime position that pays him a six figure salary to screw up the minds of young people.

One thing liberals are good at is living off the system they are trying to destroy. They know how to get all the government grants and bennys, where the freebies are hidden, etc. We accuse them of pandering to the minorities, and they do for votes, but much of what they sneak under the tent is for themselves.

I've been watching how the tribe he supposedly was a member of dealt with him, and it was by a flat denunciation and specific announcement that he was not, and never had been, a member of the tribe. He was on a special list, a sort of "Honorary Member", which is like winning "Mayor for the Day" in some town pie-baking contest (as in "Not Mayor").

Not surprising at all. We learned during the Clinton regime that one thing leftists do when attacked is attack in return, accuse the accuser, attack the attacker. They never, ever lie down, they never, ever admit they are wrong, they never, ever grant any quarter to those who disagree with them. They circle the wagons and defend themselves and their fellow travelers until they either win, or go down fighting to the bitter end.

And this from people who are wrong on substance and stance on important issues. Conservatives need to learn something about tactics from these scumbags. We roll over too often and play "the gentleman" and "the good loser", even though we're right. I'm man enough to admit when I am wrong on facts or logic, but when it comes to fighting for principles and ideals I think we need to be as tough and persistent as those who oppose us, or more so.

Academic conduct is examining and questioning the findings and assertions of another academic? Silly me, I thought that was the whole idea - a search for the truth. But in the contemporary environment the idea is for the 'Liberal' to be able to make any unfounded assertions, any questionable allegations, and whoever disagrees with him/her should just shut up. So much for freedom of speech. I had these guys pegged when I was in college, but didn't understand the extent or the ramifications then.

Boy, you said it! Just watching these idiots explain things away is pure torture. They are counting on the problem going away from sheer exhaustion.

Some of your area Freepers might want to pass along some kudos to Thomas Brown at Lamar for his efforts at exposing the Colorado poseur. Now if they would just do something about a football team. Which reminds me, the stadium only seats roughly 12,000(?). When I used to follow PNG High School football, they would occasionally have a playoff game at Cardinal Stadium. PNG fans would fill up all of their side and about half the other side. A sea of purple! But I digress ;^)

Apparently Brown has made some waves. A GOOGLE SEARCH turns up lots o' hits.

Anywho, any bets the guy at Lamar is a Freeper? If not, he needs to be recruited. Go get 'im!

Worth a Texas ping Meek???
