The Worst of the Worst
Front Page Magazine ^ | 05/02/07 | Editors, Frontpagemag.com

[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 Churchill’s 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.

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 only message others in education should get is teach your curriculum and leave political rhetoric and your personal opinions and beliefs out of the classroom.

"...the math teacher in an Oakland middle school: be careful what you say; stay close to the official story; stick to the authorized text."

It's all drooling drivel, but I particularly liked the bit about a MATH teacher in an "Oakland middle school" being intimidated, because it shows yet again the depravity of the political left. Why on earth should any middle school MATH teacher be saying anything to students about anything Ward Churchill discusses, anyway? The competent instruction of mathematics to middle school students would never come anywhere close to the topics Ward Churchill has addressed in his career (ranting propaganda on US history and foreign policy, etc.). Of course, since so many leftists think of all teaching as indoctrination and so many are happy to abuse their power and classroom time to indoctrinate in subjects that have nothing to do with the class being taught, I can see how propagandistic scumbags like Ayers would worry about math teachers wanting to emulate Ward Churchill.

Bill Ayers

Bill and his moll, Bernadine Dohrn, are unrepentant communists so of course they would support Churchill.

To all who read this post: you really have to go to Frontpage and read the actual statements from all of the idiots they have there. The pure drivel, nonsense, and sanctimony spewing out of these elitist academics is amazing.

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.

It gets better...or worse...

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.

-Howard Zim
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.”

“Bzzzzznnn” Wrong.

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.]

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.


http://www.upstatefilms.org/weather/guardobserver.html

“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).”

Nothing more? Other than his beliefs, his words and his actions, what else is there to judge him by? His musical ability?

Did they get this from “The Onion”. It’s 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.

Don't believe that for a moment. (1) Colorado taxpayers are still paying his bogus, grossly excessive salary, pending final resolution of his case. (2) He will "land on his feet" in one or more other university postions with the help of his leftoid pals, you can be sure of that. (3) He will continue to command ridiculous speaking fees from leftoid groups who worship him ala the nuts quoted at the Frontpagemag.com link. No, sad to say, he's far from out of the picture.

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.

I agree that 30 years ago (or 20 in my case) college was still a reasonable deal. I went to Rutgers. My favorite classes were in English - Medieval Literature and Arthurian Romance. The latter class was taught by a professor named J.J. Wilhelm (who also wrote the books we used in the class). He was great - made it all very interesting and lively. There was never any notion of anything political in anything - it was all about the literature.

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.
