Michael Graham gets fired and Ward Churchil gets a pass. That is the state of PC liberal America. Are they as stupid as they appear or do they hate this country as much as it seems?

I bet O'Reilly will be seething tonight.

The difference is Churchill works for the goverment where it's much harder to fire.

They do not need to investigate his heritage because it has already been debunked by the tribe he was supposed to be a memeber of. Churchill is not being given a pass here.

Simply support Conservative colleges and universities and reject those that are not.

Heat's off. He's a member of a tribe, all right - the "tenured faculty" tribe, and they protect their own no matter what.

The probe is not being dropped. Of the nine charges against him only two were dropped. The probe is continuing with the other seven.

If I'm not mistaken only this one part of the probe is being dropped. The other parts are continuing.

Then he'd probably get a promotion to Provost or something. Leftists wear their perversion as a badge of honor, and the PC culture rewards them for it. It's only conservatives who get the gate for doing dastardly things like sticking up for their rights.

If they admit Churchill's not wearing any clothes, he might come back and say they're not either. Too many emperors, (on campus) not enough Indians.

I'm disgusted but not surprised. The Boulder campus is so overwhelmingly liberal, in such an overwhelmingly liberal town, that I'm sure their only concern has been how to ride out the scandal until they could quiety drop it.

Excuse me? I was caught in bed with a dead little boy and tenure never seemed to help me much.

I disagree on the tenure issue. Are you tenured or do you have experience in said area? I can tell you getting fired for sexual harrassment (sometimes even a minor charge of such is adequate), saying or expressing an opinion that is at odds with the PC crowd, making a statement opposing homos, transgenders, and perverts of many sorts, are all grounds for immediate dismissal.

Open disagreement with administrators may not get you fired, but it can result in having your research lab confiscated, and no raises for years on end. I personally know a professor that received no raise for 5 consecutive years. I have been in academia for 25 years and have seen it all. Tenured positions are being eliminated, so not to worry for the future.

They need to eliminate entire university departments. Why would anyone want a degree in Diversity Studies or Gender Equity?

My guess is their lawyers convinced them Churchill would've bled 'em for gazillions in legal fees fighting a termination all the way to the World Court.

(Oops, did I say World Court? I meant Supreme Court. Maybe.)

That is exactly how many campuses deal with charges against the liberal elite--ignore it long enough and it will go away--shuffle a few papers, call some meetings, form a committee, tell the provost, spin the story to the local media, and act like your are abundantly concerned.

Or how bout gay and lesbian studies. It is insanity, but at least it is PC. What do you do with the degrees you ask??--you feed the pablum to young, impressionable students--somebody has to do something to keep the pervert movement viable if this country is going to fulfill its dream of becoming the second coming of Rome.

Uh, because two months into Electrical Engineering they discovered there's a whole bunch of mathematics involved, and as Barbie says, "Math is hard!"

Also, most of the __________ "studies" crowd are people whose status as __________ defines their whole life and being (fill in the blank with whichever PC minority group comes to mind).

What a tragedy, for humans to lose their grip on their individuality and immerse themselves solely in group membership.

I mean, even Ward Churchill. He could have done something worthwhile, instead he put his whole soul and effort into "being somebody," and the somebody he chose to be was a fake.

I see this frequently with military wannabees (which Churchill also is, having falsified his undistinguished war record to a degree that would have shamed Liveshot Kerry). I've come to be involved in busting a couple of wannabees a year, and they have a remarkable similarity to one another. Either way, whether a guy's a phony Indian, a phony SEAL, or a phony MD, it's usually a sign of deep-seated feelings of inadequacy on the part of the individual concerned.

Churchill might appear delusional to us, but deep down he knows what a loser he is. He'll never face it, though. A long term fraud like his corrodes the character, and often leads to clinical personality disorders, which I am not qualified to diagnose, but someone who is ought to get Ward into the lab soon. Not that there's any good prognosis for personality disorders.

Likewise, the personal fabulist, wannabee, Munchhausen Syndrome guy, whichever you call him, will never stop, even if he loses his family and career due to his lies. I knew one of these guys that was thrown out of the Army for falsifying his record. Later, he went to prison for life for killing his wife. He's still there. You would think that would be rock bottom but he's still telling the other jailbirds fantasy stories about his days as a big hero.

He and Ward would make a fine couple. I'd spit on them both, but spit deserves better.

d.o.l.

It is amazing how many FReepers can read a headline that begins "Ward Churchill says" and believe what follows.

The investigation has not ended:

"I think I will declare myself as being Inuit and apply for some minority jobs."

Are you sure, man? The qualification for that is the ability to eat whale blubber and drink seal oil. If they had a position as community barfer or something like that, you might be eligible.

I guess the University of Colorado thinks the issue has died down enough for them to slink off into the night. Don't send your kids to this school. Send them a message instead.

Well, if Ward said it, it's almost certainly not true. I wonder how his "lawsuit" to get his sabbatical approved is going.
