Fired Professor Teaches Anyway : Ward Churchill Back At CU
TheDenverChannel ^ | October 3, 2007

Posted on 10/03/2007 10:02:12 PM PDT by george76

University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill was fired by the Board of Regents in July.

But that didn't stop Churchill from still teaching at CU this week.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, a group of student supporters rented out a classroom at CU's Eaton Humanities Building and invited Churchill to teach.

The topic? "ReVisioning American History: Colonization, Genocide and Formation of the U.S. Settler State."

And it appears this isn't a one-time-only event.

Churchill elicited applause and handshakes from the majority of the 30 or so CU students and area residents who came to hear his lecture, which he titled “ReVisioning American History: Colonization, Genocide and Formation of the U.S. Settler State.”

Churchill, who did not allow the Camera to attend the class, said the group would come up with various topics to discuss.

“I’ve been invited by people who are concerned with content of the mind,” Churchill said.

Churchill sparked a national furor in 2005 after his essay on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks called some victims “little Eichmanns,” a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who helped carry out Hitler’s plan to exterminate Europe’s Jews during World War II.

The controversial former professor was invited to speak in a classroom at CU’s Eaton Humanities Building by a group of student supporters who rented out the space.

Churchill handed out a class syllabus, which includes scheduled classes to be held Oct. 9 about colonialism, Oct. 23 on genocide and Oct. 30 about racism.

Two men who identified themselves as event organizers turned away three male CU students at the door, calling them “agitators.”

One of the men watching the door, who did not give his name, became physical with a Camera reporter who tried to enter the room — grabbing his arm and pushing him — prompting a report to police.

These bastards just never go away, do they?
I guess being polite and tolerant of the bastards in our society doesn’t work...

Time to go harsh and start kicking ass, or worse.

Obviously the university knows about this and doesn’t care. Also, a worthless class to the students as they won’t be receiving credit towards their diploma.

I like the fact that he only drew 30 in the People’s Republic of Boulder. He’s fading...

I wonder if he will be at the Columbus Day march to greet me, and perhaps throw some horse manure at my feet?

Last we knew: University of Colorado regents voted 8-1 to fire controversial professor Ward Churchill on July 26 amid accusations of academic misconduct.

Churchill said after the vote: “I am going nowhere.”

Next: Churchill plans to convene his class on Oct. 9, 23 and 30. A student organizer said Churchill will also return for a “spring semester.”

In other words, there never was any point in paying this man to teach. The compulsion to spread one's message without being paid to do so is strong in this one—and that's a sign of a religious nut leading a cult.

Ward Churchill is doing a good imitation of L. Ron Hubbard. But Hubbard was both smarter and more effective.

“Kids will do the damnedest things just to pi$$ off the adults.”

Problem is, with the exception of the officials that fired Churchill,
most of CU and The People’s Republic of Boulder is a case of case
of arrested development.

So let me understand this, he's teaching a class that doesn't offer credits toward a degree in a rented hall for students at CU? In other words, someone's renting space to give "students" a chance to listen to a lecture that has no bearing on their credits?

No wonder there are 24 year olds still working on their degrees....

Shaking my head..I hope his parents didn't have to pay for his education. Or maybe they're proud of their stupid son. Who knows...Ward Churchill is a liar, faker & a fraud.

He also lied about his military career...In a 1987 profile on Churchill, the Denver Post stated that Churchill went to paratrooper school, then volunteered for Vietnam, where he served a 10-month tour as Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP), one of a six-man team sent out to track down North Vietnamese.[6] The Denver Post reported in 2005 that Churchill's military records show that he was trained as a projectionist and light truck driver, and gave no indication that he went to paratrooper school or trained for LRRP.

When I was up last night with my toothache I decided to google him & lookee what I found... I think he was a lying soldier. Which makes him a phony in my eyes. He is another big liar to add to the ever growing liar’s list.

Good, he is a disgrace to the Indians too. I remember one Indian coming out & saying he isn’t of our tribe...He does have some card he says that makes him a member of a tribe. I never bought into his stories. I think he has mental problems.

Turns out his “card” was meant to be some kind of honorary status with that tribe, and they’ve since made it clear they don’t regard him as one of them. The guy is phony as a three dollar bill.

“...Ward Churchill would do himself some good to express a profound apology to people he has offended and misled.

He should also come clean about his appropriated American Indian identity. “

Churchill: “Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect”

Ward Churchill has made some more despicable 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
