My thoughts exactly!
Very well thought out response.
Thanks for your post.
ya got that right , there are many things worth defending! BTW , I've spent time in beautiful Colorado , and I can imagine he is being watched , if he isn't creeped-out yet,then he is dumb as a stick
yeah , LOL!! its quite a hoot when the lefties AND the LaRouchies are goin' nuts on Broadway
He publicized their efforts to degrade everything decent in the name of 'art' and 'free speech'.
"Put him on TV. Let him speak for the Left. Let America listen to what the Left believes."
I totally agree.
A majority of Americans are not aware of how 'off the wall' and despicable the hard left really is. The liberal media tends to conceal, or soft pedal the real nastiness of their moven.org/Nation Magazine allies.
I think even a majority of Democrats would be turned off; if they were to read, what goes on when the hard left talks with itself on the various hard left blogs. The routine use of the F word, the venom, the incredible hostility and paranoia concerning virtually every institution in American life. The universal despising of their own country and everything America does or has done.
Ward Churchill provides a valuable service. He brings to the fore front the loonyness and vileness of the left, but what is even more valuable is for the public to see how strong his support is in academia and other outposts of Marxist extremism. When Churchill first surfaced it shocked a lot of people in Colorado; but it was the rally soon after that attracted a large standing room only crowd of vocal supporters, that really shocked and woke people up.
The part about this I really like is that, "the cost to UC's reputation for keeping Churchill on its teaching staff is incalculable." Indeed, that's the best thing about this whole business. By keeping Churchill on its staff UC demonstrates to the whole world what a corrupt Marxist cesspit all of present "world class" modern American academia, specifically including Harvard and the rest of the Ivy League, has become. Churchill isn't being being kept on the UC faculty because of UC's alleged dedication to "academic freedom" and "free speech;" instead he's being kept on because of UC's dedication to Marxism. Anybody who doesn't believe that just needs to look at the pillorying and political reeducation Larry Summers was subjected to when, in an appropriate academic forum, he mildly and equivocally suggested that women as a group might not do as well in the hard sciences as men because of genetic differences between men and women, a position that has a great deal of academic support.
I agree with everything you say except the above. The challenge for the Republican media people is to showcase Churchill's inflammatory statements and tie them to the Democrats. Let him speak anywhere and everywhere and make sure the American public knows his noxious ideas are what their kids are being brainwashed with in colleges. The only reason universities have gotten away with turning themselves into radical Left indoctrination centers is that the people who send them money don't know what's happening.
His mouthings find resonance among the lefty academics that infest our colleges and universities.
Infestation indeed. I've always remembered an educator referring to our institutions of lower learning as "ivy-covered North Koreas."
In another instance, an Oregon educator attended a seminar at Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. The best he could bestow on that place: A toxic-waste site. He will never go there again for any reason.
Our tax dollars at work.
