Ward Churchill is out, but left still rules CU
Denver Post ^ | 08/03/2007 | John Andrews

Posted on 08/06/2007 2:21:09 PM PDT by george76

The easy part of the Ward Churchill affair is over. The faux scholar and ethnic imposter was fired from the University of Colorado faculty for dishonesty in his academic profession, not for honesty in his radical politics.

Colorado citizens and taxpayers, acting through their elected regents, rightly rid themselves of a corrupt and treacherous employee. Churchill may sue all the way to the Supreme Court, but Chief Justice Roberts and his colleagues will finally uphold the board's action.

Now comes the hard part: thinking through what we the people mean by a great university in a free society, then finding the political will to reform our academic institutions accordingly.

"How Many Ward Churchills?," a 2006 report by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, concluded that abuse of the professor's podium to undermine the ideal of higher learning itself is common nationwide. Wild Ward appears to have many soulmates among the Boulder faculty.... Churchill's departure will do little to cure the wider intellectual rot you can sense on campus.

His former fiefdom, the Department of Ethnic Studies, proclaims online that ...

CU spends $22 million annually on diversity programs. This includes nearly 100 activities so tangled and varied - but none addressing intellectual or political diversity, of course - that administrators conceded to an Independence Institute researcher there's no complete list.

Although I haven’t read it I hear David Horowitz has a book out “The Professors: 101 most dangerous Academics in America” that paints a good picture about how infested with marxism colleges are today !!!

His former fiefdom, the Department of Ethnic Studies, proclaims online that it "empowers students to move beyond existing social, cultural and political paradigms to more inclusive paradigms in which they are the subjects of their own reality." Relying on "critical race theory, critical class theory, feminist theory, liberation theology, postmodernism, and postcolonial theory," say these shapers of tomorrow's radicals, "we engage emergent epistemologies of racial/ethnic communities to critically question established disciplinary canons."

This rubbish reads like it was written by that infamous academic poseur, Cornel West.

There is so much dead and rotted wood in academia - it’s dangerous to light a match on most campuses...

Here in Kalifornicate we have UC Santa Cruz —— a place of indoctrination so polluted by leftists, PC loons, perverts and ethnic racists since the 70’s that most on campus would self implode if they ever had to prove they they were not anti-America or anti-capitalists...

In the mid 70’s, I took a recruiting team of Engineering managers to UC Santa Cruz and asked to speak only to the top 10% of the graduating class in a number of fields...

I was shocked to hear that they couldn’t identify the top 10%, since they DIDN’T GRADE students on their work!
Well — that ended that recruiting trip... I informed my team we were leaving...

“Buying a pig in a poke” had real meaning at UC Santa Cruz....

Us conservatives need to find college’s that are right leaning...hey, I know that’s hard...but there are a few out there. What would these unversities do without conservative kids?

While I hate this sort of thing, why hasn’t the right filed law suit in order to break up the marxist professorial majority on campuses across this nation?

How can descrimination not be proven when something like 90% of the staff at these universities are moonbat leftists?

Loosely translated, this means America should be ashamed of itself, needs reinventing (or even, as Churchill has suggested, erasing),...

“Does this include the business department?”

It sure seems that way. How one can teach capitalism and be a socialist is beyond me.

Lawsuits are a blunt instrument. Besides, there aren't many non-lefties to replace the professoriate, since conservatives have largely abandoned the liberal arts for "practical" fields.

I don’t entirely disagree, but we are all but abandoning the higher education of our youth to people who wish to destroy our way of life.

Hillary Clinton is a good example. She was exposed to a leftist influence in her later year(s) in high school. That assh—e turned her from a Goldwater Girl to a died in the wool Marxist. He latched on to her and kept in touch for something like 20-30 years.

Look what the turning of one individual has wrought.

Amazing, isn't it, how the left has managed to corrupt every institution they've taken over? The academy, the media, education, government...

It's a helluva record of disaccomplishment...

There’s actually a book out about the 10 most conservatives colleges in the US. That might be the actual title but not sure. Baylor was one of them.

Honest Injun?
The incidence of fake Indians is almost epidemic.

By John J. Miller

EDITOR’S NOTE: “Did a struggling white writer of gay erotica become one of multicultural literature’s most celebrated memoirists — by passing himself off as Native American?” So asks L.A. Weekly in its current issue, which features a story by Matthew Fleischer on an author who calls himself Nasdijj and claims to be a Navajo.

Fake memoirs have made news lately, with the revelations surrounding James Frey, the author of the best-selling book A Million Little Pieces. Nasdijj, for his part, may simply be the latest in a long line of Indian hoaxers, whose ranks also include the radical professor Ward Churchill and Forrest Carter, the author of The Education of Little Tree.

Last year, NR’s John J. Miller reported on the phenomenon of Indian hoaxers, in the March 28, 2005 issue...

(Ward Churchill seems to be one of many.)

It sure does include business professors. You should remember that business professors are government employees. Which political party pays homage to government employees? Business professors support high governement spending, global warming, racial quotas, and other leftist causes including hatred of George Bush. Bush is our man, an MBA president. Do business professors despise everyone with an MBA?

In late November 2000 during the heart of the Florida fiasco, I was at a dinner with a group of business professors. Everyone was strongly against Bush, accusing him trying to steal the election. Before I left the table, I told everyone that I had two words for them - Sore Loserman. They laughed but I doubt it had any effect.

These frauds get hired and promoted by their fellow frauds. Hundreds of fellow travelers at Boudler took out big newspaper ads and marched for Ward.

...why not provide equal time for a CU Department of Western Civilization academically devoted to "advancing the ideals of freedom [with] loyalty to the past [and] responsibility to the future"? Talk about radical.

But Boulder wouldn't dare, would it? Sadly, no. Those words are from the brochure of a tiny Center for Western Civilization begun at the university as a solo effort by classics professor Christian Kopff. "The permanent things, embedded in tradition, are good things for human life," his defiant prospectus continues. He invites students to join "in the fruitful exploration of the benefits and significance of Western Culture, from the ancient Greeks to the American Founding."

For perspective on the center's pathetic $86,000 budget (just increased by Brown, with touching gratitude from Kopff), consider that CU spends $22 million annually on diversity programs.

Take heart folks -

These lefty freaks aren’t fooling smart kids. More and more college kids are fighting back.

It’s a Christian college so that should be the norm. Some of the older colleges started by Christians though, such as Yale and Harvard, Colgate and others, have gone over to the ‘other side.’
