ACLU urges CU regents not to fire Ward Churchill
July 20, 2007 The American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to the University of Colorado's Board of Regents on Thursday, urging them not to fire professor Ward Churchill. "I think that the protection of the First Amendment rights is vital in the university and in the general public," said Cathy Hazouri, executive director of ACLU of Colorado.

How has a lost his 1st Ammendment rights? He can still go out to any street corner with a sandwich board and inform everybody of his wacky conspiracies like the other crazy people.
There, fixed it.
Oh, wait, that’s right, most of that’s forbidden now, thanks to the liberals. Can’t have hate speech, you know.
But nothing, anywhere, says that you can act like a moron and still expect to be employed. Ward Churchhill’s plagiarism’s will continue no matter if he’s employed by Colorado University or not. He’ll still express wacko ideas. Well, guess this wasn’t a First Amendment case after all.
Now, had he said that La Raza should rise up, and take over, he’d likely still have his chair. Had he said the White people should rise up, and take over, he’d be shown the electric swingset by the ACLU. (Sorry, electric chair is forbidden, they’re against such things...)
Tell that to Imus.
They are not clueless they wish to destroy America.
Nice of them to protect Churchill’s right to plagiarize and to lie about his qualifications. /s
The ACLU should just offer Ward Churchill a desk and a fax machine.
ACLU= A##HOLE, COMMIE, LUNATIC, UNION
Has the ACLU become a collection of Marxist deadheads?
Well that settles it if the ACLU says it’s a bad thing to do then -— LET’S DO IT, and I quote a phrase of a Scot Cabbie and Amateur Footballer from Glasgow; Ward Churchill - ‘aboot ye!’
Become???? Read the book the ACLU vs. America; they always have been Marxist Meatheads and I appologize to meatheads for insulting them.
Hasn’t this pretender been shown the door yet?
The University of Colorado’s report on the investigation of Ward Churchill’s alleged scholarly misconduct has just been released.
Churchill was found guilty of deliberate false assertions, misrepresentation of sources, and plagiarism.
Among other things, Churchill was found guilty of passing off others’ work as his own (plagiarism), but also of passing off his own work as others’.
This “permits the author to create the false appearance that his claims are supported by other scholars when, in fact, he is the only source for such claims”...
I guess the ACLU does not support the free speech rights of high school valedictorians when they mention God or Jesus during their graduation speeches? No...this type of free speech is targeted by the communists/stalinists of the ACLU.
The ACLU is ‘The enemy within’.
Support the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF)... an orgainization that fights the ACLU on all fronts.
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.”
This is absurd. No one has arrested him, let alone sentenced him to anything. He can espouse his idiocy to anyone he likes without facing any legal consequences. That doesn’t mean that the university is legally bound to keep him employed there.
Damn, the ACLU becomes more of a fringe group every year. What kind of person would donate to them?
What they don’t get is this. Ward Churchill was not hired by the University for the purpose of expressing his opinion. He was hired to teach. Most students and parents, the people that pay him, are unhappy with his teaching. Therefore he should be terminated.
When we have come so far in this country that people can’t follow this logical series of conclusions, the system needs an overhaul.
So it does not matter to the phony ACLU that his credentials are false and he’s pligarized other work. Geeze. What a bunch of anti-American dolts. Can’t see facts for their agenda.
Screw them all. They’re worth nothing to this nation.
I didn’t know they we’re ever anything else.
I thought this guy was fired. Geeze...how long does it take? Must be going on 4 years now.
“Has the ACLU become a collection of Marxist deadheads?”
The ACLU’s founder, Roger Baldwin, stated:
“We are for SOCIALISM, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself... We seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the SOLE CONTROL of those who produce wealth. COMMUNISM is the goal.” (Source: Trial and Error, by Geo. Grant)
The ACLU has always been Communist. Once they start acting as human sheilds for jihadi’s in this country there will be a house cleaning of the ACLU.
In a sane world, membership or support of the ACLU would be grounds for arrest.
Nice picture of Sandy Day O’C there!
I hope they don’t fire him. Let him hang like an albatross around the necks of the leftist eduKKKrat scum to remind the public of the depraved, degenerate, evil-abetting nature of today’s eduKKKation system.
The Founders never said that there will NEVER be any consequences to exercising 1st Amendment rights.
You can’t act like a friggin idiot and your employer has to keep you on because of it. You wind up tarnishing the institution’s reputation by making it appear they encourage idiots to work there.
How bout letting christians pray in schools, ACLU? No 1st Amendment for YOU! (Soup Nazi ACLU)
They certainly are one group I will not miss when the big quake hits the Left Coast.
(then to be buried up to the neck in a red ant hill )
Give the phony native American some of his own medicine
i had never thought of such a maneuver of passing off one’s own ideas as those of another scholar thereby legitimizing these ideas.
Ward is a POS and ‘evil.’ He is protected by many others who know how these scams work...
The conclusion one must draw from such examples isn’t that every institution has its bad apples but rather that, at least in the liberal arts in America, moral turpitude and political hucksterism pervades higher education.
Radical criminals with questionable academic credentials flourish in a milieu that bristles with hostility toward real scholars who don’t toe the party linewitness the case of former Harvard President Lawrence Summers.
Individuals with prison records or FBI rap sheets don’t get into major educational institutions because they fudge their resumes.
They get in because they share the political dogmas of those who hire themand they flourish for the same reason.
the ACLU should just hire him as a consultant
This guy STILL has a paying job? How is that possible? (I don’t get out much.)
