Skip to comments.David Horowitz to Debate Ward Churchill at Academic Freedom Conference
Posted on 03/22/2006 12:16:02 PM PST by GaryL
On April 6-7, 2006, Students for Academic Freedom will host its First National Academic Freedom Conference featuring a debate between Students for Academic Freedom Chairman David Horowitz and University of Colorado-Boulder Professor Ward Churchill. The topic for debate will be: Can Politics Be Taken Out Of The Classroom, and Should It Be?
The debate will be held Thursday evening on the campus of George Washington University in Washington, DC. Young Americas Foundation and the Center for the Study of Popular Culture are the co-hosts of the debate. Seating for the debate is limited and will be determined by George Washington University. Conference registration does not guarantee admission to the debate.
The conference will also feature U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander, House Leader Jack Kingston, and Colorado high school student Sean Allen whose recording of an anti-American rant by his geography teacher, Jay Bennish, created a national furor over classroom indoctrination. The conference (apart from the debate) will take place at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, DC.
The conference is free for students, non-profit employees
First, let's compare credentials.
If the Freaks let Horowitz get a word in edgewise, Ward's gonna get his ass kicked.
David Horowitz actually has an M.A. in English. Literary Props!
Well... I guess I don't know how capable of a debater either one is, but Horowitz is by far the wiser, more honest and more correct of the two. :-)
ONE OF WARD CHURCHILL'S EX-WIVES SPEAKS
By Michelle Malkin · March 13, 2005 06:12 PM
The never-ending Ward Churchill saga continues. Pirate Ballerina has a four-page rant reportedly from one of his ex-wives, "Dr. M. Anne Jaimes" of San Francisco.
She essentially accuses him of stealing her work and says he is guilty of "being Indian careerism."
I could almost consider driving up to DC to watch this show. (Tell you son he better do some contingency planning -- I wouldn't bet the farm that Churchill will show. If he has any sense, he won't.)
Watching Horowitz rip Churchill a new one would be fun!
Congratulations! You must be very proud of him.
Much .edu about nothing.
Oooh, I hope they have pictures...I want one of Chief Wannabee stomping off in protest...
SWEET Ann Coulter takes another look at the Ward Churchill controversy:
Tenure was supposed to create an atmosphere of open debate and inquiry, but instead has created havens for talentless cowards who want to be insulated from life.
Rather than fostering a climate of open inquiry, college campuses have become fascist colonies of anti-American hate speech, hypersensitivity, speech codes, banned words and prohibited scientific inquiry.
Even [leftists] don't try to defend Churchill on grounds that he is Galileo pursuing an abstract search for the truth.
They simply invoke "free speech," like a deus ex machina to end all discussion.
Like the words "diverse" and "tolerance," "free speech" means nothing but: "Shut up, we win."
I'd expect either that or that he'll simply demagogue, ignoring Horowitz's points and using the occasion to repeat his own anti-American slanders.
Of course in any fair debate, Churchill would end up looking like an idiot. I'd love to see it happen.
I would actually pay-per-view on TV to watch this! A phony liberal paranoid psychopathic liar/fraud and his brain dead screaming followers versus one conservative genius. Should be no match at all.
Let's see if Big Chief Fraud-in-the-face would want to debate an actual Indian
David will be eaten alive. Churchill is a marauding beast. He won't play fair and will have poor David quivering in his historical and classical allusions.
Ward's getting ready to RRRRRUUUUMBBBBLEEEE!
A true debate must be between people of different views but with common ethics.
Will Chief Wampum be able to put down the "peace pipe" long enough to be able to form coherent thoughts?
But can you ask him if the debate can be recorded - put on Hannity or podcast or something. I want to see this one...
Nevertheless, I have faith in him. He's no stranger to bare-knuckle politics, and unlike Ward Churchill, he's actually been in the ring. Churchill's career has been sparring with bantamweights.
I can't wait to see how wrong you are! Unless, of course, the debate is not real and not moderated. Then, you'd be correct! ;o)
It's never gonna happen; Churchill will weasel out of it....
Are you going to ping us interested folks?
Bringing a tutu to a gun fight.
I dont think face-to-face debating is Horowitzs strongest attribute. I seen him become flustered a couple of times. Of course thats usually when MSM only gives him 3 seconds to respond to a complex question.
If the debate was in writing, he could compete with the best of them.
Thank you for that link.....I've been looking for something like that......I want to show my relatives what REALLY happened......so THEY NEVER FORGET!
This should be good. I have seen Horowitz deal with an extreme lefty before. It was funny actually.
I look forward to the After-Action report on this event, GaryL. And tell your son he's doing a good job here in injun territory.
As much as I think Mr. Churchill is a jackass,I don't give much creedence to what"Ex-wives"say!
Gonna be a gun-fight and Churchill is definitely shooting blanks. Fun to watch!
its not fair having an intellectual battle between the two when Churchill is unarmed (chuckle)
I'd still hope he goes and does his best.....people KNOW when they are being "conned."
I sent my liberal sister a link to the bodies of the jumpers after they landed--won't post it here--but the left needs to see what terrorism REALLY looks like up close and personal.
The first thing that I thought of is how phony psychics would never come on the old Tonight Show, after Carson, a former stage magician chewed a few of them to pieces. He knew the tricks.
Horowitz, a former Marxist, will know the tricks.
Video: Churchill advocates killing of Military Officers
Churchill: "Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect"
Ward Churchill has made some more discpicable comments. This time, he is advocating military personnel to "roll a grenade under their line officer."
Churchill: "For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal.
But let me ask you this: Would you render the same level of support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?"
"...Conscientious objection removes a given piece of cannon fodder from the fray. Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect." - Ward Churchill, Portland, Oregon- 6/23/05
Is your sister still a liberal?
Thank you, this is bound to be a hoot!
"...Ward Churchill would do himself some good to express a profound apology to people he has offended and misled. He should also come clean about his appropriated American Indian identity. "
Increase Mail's piece by 109%, reverse it, and the two overlap perfectly, down to the shape of the grass and the position of each rider's feathers, even the position of the horses' legs.Yet Churchill still maintains it is an original composition.(Yes, Ward, but why are all your Indians left-handed in the piece?)
I'd sure like to be wrong on this one Frou.
But these slimey types don't play by the rules ordinarily.
Count on 'street theatre' and extraordinary antics that could rob Horowitz of any decent airing. (This guy is vintage "counter culture')
Expect the unexpected.
Here's a television heads-up for the forum.
Horowitz will be on a segment of BookTV (C-Span2) this weekend, talking about
his book on the professors (such as Ward Churchill).
Detail are at the link:
Reminiscent of the Chesterton / Shaw Debates, with two INTELLIGENT
participants. Wait... er... never mind. Churchill's gonna get creamed.
Can you ping me when you post what happens at the debate?
I'd love to see this in person, though I think Churchill will run out of the building quicker than Feingold...
Oh that oughta be fun!
