[from "Weathermen" terrorist Bill Ayers]: Ward Churchill is under a sustained, orchestrated, and determined attack because of his political beliefs and statements and activities, and nothing more. No one doubts his productivity or his accomplishments. But the attack on Churchill is neither isolated nor innocent the high school history teacher on the west side of Chicago gets the message, and so does the English literature teacher in Detroit and the math teacher in an Oakland middle school: be careful what you say; stay close to the official story; stick to the authorized text. If someone of Ward Churchills stature and standing for so many years at the University of Colorado can suffer this kind of campaign, what chance do I have?
Every committee, every investigation, every report plays out under a shadow of the star chamber; everyone must choose who to be and how to act in response. For this reason I support Ward Churchill unequivocally, unapologetically, whole-heartedly. I urge my colleagues and my students and everyone who values education as a grand enterprise geared toward enlightenment and liberation to speak out forcefully and fearlessly now on behalf of the liberty of teaching and learning, on behalf of the right to think at all.

Ward Churchill is a fraud, and a self loathing kook.
Someone of his STATURE??? gag me.
Leftist charlatan Ward Churchill gets some ringing endorsements from fellow nutjobs...... interesting that none of them dare to address the actual issues of his plagiarism and research fraud, dishonesty and incompetence, and sheer imbecility. No, they refer to him in glowing terms as a distinguished scholar, etc. which says all you need to know about the quality and judgment of his fellow charlatans in this forum.
Two incorrect statements in the first two sentences... I think I can stop right there
The same could be said for my Xerox machine.
“No one doubts his productivity or his accomplishments. “
Bill and his moll, Bernadine Dohrn, are unrepentant communists so of course they would support Churchill.
College tuition is without a doubt one of THE biggest wastes of money today, given that these fools and their self-important blatherings are fairly indicative of their attitude and intelligence.
I have declared my support of Ward Churchill because to defend him is to defend the principle of academic freedom, the idea that no one should lose his or her job or status in education because of factors outside of teaching and scholarship.
Professor Emeritus, Boston University
REALLY Comrade Zim?? What "principle of academic freedom" does Churchill's slander, libel, false research, calls for sedition, et al embody? He brings his "factors outside of teaching and scholarship" into the classroom!!
It enrages me that these fools will be the 'useful idiots' instructing (brainwashing) my children when they go to college.
It further disgusts me that I just spent several months in Iraq defending these leftist traitors from their islamofascist 'allies' they so admire. "Allies" that will gleefully slaughter them if given the chance.
Folks, you have to look at this the right way -
WE WANT THESE KOOKS TO SPEAK OUT, LOUD!
and be amplified and exposed - and of course, associated with Democrats.
“be careful what you say; stay close to the official story; stick to the authorized text.”
Don’t make fantastical statements and defend them as TRVTH and dare anyone to say you are wrong. You can stray “from the authorized text” as long as what you say has some basis in facts.
Who wrote this garbage? A child of 6? [No, I didn’t read the entire article...this says enough.]
Good he's a liar and a fraud, he's lucky he's not under under arrest too.
Well you do have to consider the source..... :^)
Ayers and friends are terrorist murderers - it’s fortunate that the townhouse bomb went off where it did (accident taking out some of the Weathermen themselves) because it was intended for mass murder at a ball for non-coms at Fort Dix.
“The Americans who declared war on their country....
The Weathermen blasted their way into history as America’s first terrorist group. Now, as one of their leaders is released, the nation reflects on the most violent period in its recent history....”
“On 6 March 1970, days after Dohrn’s earnest declaration of war, members of a Weatherman cell in New York accidentally detonated a makeshift nail-bomb intended for a non-commissioned officers’ ball at Fort Dix, New Jersey. The explosion ripped the front off a red-brick townhouse in Greenwich Village where the group had been hiding out, killing three members of the group instantly (the blast was so devastating that one of the would-be bombers, Diana Oughton, the daughter of a prominent Republican banker, could be identified only from the prints on her severed finger).”
This might amuse you.
So is President Bush. Which one is more important?
Simply more communist propaganda. Not be fired? Right. He should be stood against a wall and shot!! “Oh, no”, whine the bed wetters and hand wringers. O.K., we’ll just draw and quarter him. Wadda jerk!!!!
LOL!!! Better put away such problems as:
"Two ho's each gave their pimp $200 each, which was 80% of their earnings for the day. How much did the two ho's make combined?"
..”I urge my colleagues and my students and everyone who values education as a grand enterprise geared toward enlightenment”...Translation: Don’t get a higher education to better yourself, get it to bug everyone else with your whackjob radical ideas....
Of course you do! You and he are so much alike: you're two P.O.S. in a pod.
I forgot all about this guy. Man why are we giving him attention? He is an idiot, but out of the picture.
If Ward Churchill farted in class, this idiot would think he uttered the most profound statement known to man!
Did they get this from âThe Onionâ. Itâs hilarious.”Ward Churchill, distinguished scholar; Persecuted for telling the truth.” There has to be a sarcasm tag at the end of it, but I can’t find it.
I thank God for the time I spent at Gonzaga. I know it was over 30 years ago, and times have changed. Still, I'm certain that Fr. Bob Spitzer would not allow a charlatan like Churchill on the campus.
Although I majored in accounting, my most memorable class after all these years was a third year philosophy class. The professor, a Jesuit priest, "unlocked the door" regarding the nature of philosophy:
"With philosophy, it's not what you say, it's how you say it, because philosophy is nothing but a bunch of bull s---!"
I don't think I ever worked harder for a B in my life. On Tuesday, we'd get our assignment for Thursday's class, which was a two page, typed book report, on such books as Wittgenstein's Blue and Brown Books.
Thursday's two hour class would entail each of us (14) reading our reports, followed by discussion and comments. That 12 of the 14 students were theology majors, and studying for the priesthood, added to the singularity of the experience.
He did frequently take entire weeks off to go on "sabbaticals" to Italy and other places (being a college prof was a very cushy job, even back then), but most of my fondest memories of college were the lectures he gave in that class.
