David Horowitz to Debate Ward Churchill at Academic Freedom Conference
Students for Academic Freedom ^ | March 23, 2006 | Sara Dogan

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 America’s 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

My son is the Director of Political Affairs for the George Washington University College Republicans. He is arranging this debate between David Horowitz and Ward Churchill, so I'll post here on Free Republic a first hand account of the encounter.

If the Freaks let Horowitz get a word in edgewise, Ward's gonna get his ass kicked.

Holy cow! I predict Churchill will be reduced to a quivering puddle of goo when this is over, if the debate is handled fairly.

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. :-)

Does anyone care to lay odds that something will "offend" Chief Wannabee in the first 30 seconds of the debate, causing him to stomp off in protest?

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."

Great work by your son!

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.)

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.

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!

It is impossible to win any debate with anyone on the left as they have no problem with telling lie after lie after lie. Just like the other thread about the upcoming debate between Ann Coulter and Al Frankenface, I don't care how smart Ann is, if she sticks to the facts and truth then she loses.

A true debate must be between people of different views but with common ethics.

But can you ask him if the debate can be recorded - put on Hannity or podcast or something. I want to see this one...

If Horowitz can keep his cool, his rhetorical skills are formidable. But I've seen him get agitated and stumble badly.

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.

"...Churchill thus represents the reductio ad absurdum of the contemporary university's willingness to subordinate all other values to affirmative action.  
 
 When such a grotesque fraud - a white man pretending to be an Indian, an intellectual charlatan spewing polemical garbage festooned with phony footnotes, a shameless demagogue fabricating imaginary historical incidents to justify his pathological hatreds, an apparent plagiarist who steals and distorts the work of real scholars - manages to scam his way into a full professorship at what is still a serious research university, we know the practice of affirmative action has hit rock bottom ..."

I don’t think face-to-face debating is Horowitz’s strongest attribute. I seen him become flustered a couple of times. Of course that’s 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.

That's what I was just thinking. If Churchill actually shows up, and stays, Horowitz will turn him into chopped liver.

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.

Horowitz will turn him into chopped liver.

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

           morphing of the two? 
  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.

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.

Any bets on whether the fraudulent leftist pig either comes up with an excuse for not showing or packs the audience with fellow leftist swine?

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).
