College Cancels Speech by Professor Who Disparaged 9/11 Attack Victims
NY Times ^ | February 2, 2005 | PATRICK D. HEALY

Posted on 02/02/2005 12:11:06 PM PST by neverdem

CLINTON, N.Y., Feb. 1 - Over the last five days, tiny Hamilton College in upstate New York has been barraged with more than 6,000 e-mail messages full of fury, some threatening violence. Some donors have canceled pledges to an ambitious capital campaign. And prospective students have withdrawn applications or refused to enroll.

Then, on Monday night, a caller to the college threatened to bring a gun to campus.

Stunned and frightened, Hamilton leaders sought to end the turmoil on Tuesday by canceling the event that set it off: a planned speech by a Colorado professor who was invited to talk about American Indian activism but whose earlier essay on the Sept. 11 attacks fueled the criticism and threats. The professor, Ward Churchill of the University of Colorado, Boulder, wrote disparagingly of the victims inside the twin towers and referred to them at one point as "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, an architect of the Holocaust.

The speech, scheduled for Thursday night, was canceled for security reasons, Hamilton officials said. Mr. Churchill said he and his wife had received more than 100 death threats, and other warnings of violence mentioned Hamilton officials, including the president, Joan Hinde Stewart. Yet the uproar also adds a twist to decades of battles over free speech on campus, showing the powerful emotional resonance of Sept. 11.

In a telephone interview on Tuesday night, Mr. Churchill called the threats against Hamilton College "American terrorism." He urged those making the threats to "take a look in the mirror."

Matt House, a freshman studying government, said, "We have controversial speakers on campus all the time, but I think everyone's so upset because it's only been three years since 9/11 and this is striking New York too close to home."

"In this case, 9/11 trumps free speech, I guess," added Brian J. Farnkoff, a senior majoring in public policy. "In the end, free speech couldn't happen at Hamilton."

In recent days, Gov. George E. Pataki said he was appalled at Mr. Churchill's remarks and at Hamilton for inviting him, and a Fox News host, Bill O'Reilly, repeatedly urged viewers to e-mail the college in protest. Ms. Stewart, the president, as well as the professors who invited Mr. Churchill, said they did not know about his essay before asking him to campus. She denounced his comments in December, but said rescinding the invitation would harm First Amendment principles.

"His remarks about the victims of 9/11 are repellent, but our reaction to 'repellent' is how we test the right to free speech," Ms. Stewart said in an interview on Tuesday shortly before addressing the turn of events with the Hamilton faculty, who gave her a standing ovation.

"We did our best to protect the principles and the values that we believe in - the right to speak, to study, to teach freely - but the point came that I simply felt that this threat was too large for us to handle," said Ms. Stewart, who was told by campus security that even additional police officers could not ensure safety.

Hamilton, a campus of 1,750 students, has always had a reputation for accepting divergent voices. In November, the same program that invited this speaker - the Kirkland Project for the Study of Gender, Society and Culture - hired Susan Rosenberg, a former member of the Weather Underground, after her release from prison on explosives charges. She later withdrew in the face of protest.

On another end of the political spectrum, the scholar Elizabeth Fox-Genovese equated abortion to murder during her talk to a packed, polite campus auditorium last Thursday. According to The Spectator, the weekly student newspaper, she also said that empowering humans to choose who lives and who dies "opens the road to the Holocaust."

Mr. Churchill - who had planned to give his remarks Thursday in a flak jacket with two bodyguards in tow - was originally scheduled to speak by himself, but Ms. Stewart and others added three people to the panel and changed its focus to free speech. One of those added was Mr. Churchill's wife, who is also a scholar. The Churchills were to be paid $3,500, but volunteered this week to forgo the money because of the complaints.

In his original essay, Mr. Churchill wrote that the thousands killed at the World Trade Center had played a role in American sanctions on Iraq that "translated, conveniently out of sight, mind and smelling distance, into the starved and rotting flesh of infants."

"If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I'd really be interested in hearing about it," he wrote.

The bulk of the outraged e-mail messages began arriving last weekend, after Mr. O'Reilly of Fox had urged viewers to contact Hamilton.

"If you allow this vile individual to speak you forever label yourself as the Auschwitz of American colleges," stated one e-mail message among nearly 400 that Hamilton posted on its Web site to show the reaction to Mr. Churchill.

"Would he feel the same way about his own wife or child if they worked in the W.T.C. and were lost because they went to work that day," wrote the spouse of a rescue-operations captain who was killed. "He should be banned on the grounds of slandering the victims of such a brutal terrorist attack."

Ms. Stewart said she alone received 6,000 messages, describing them as "ranging from angry to profane, obscene, violent," and asserted that Hamilton's actions had been mischaracterized by many of the writers, as well as by Mr. O'Reilly.

Controversial speakers are nothing new to academic institutions: For years, Leonard Jeffries of the City University of New York would create a stir on campus and elsewhere with provocative remarks, and a Columbia University faculty panel is now investigating remarks by some pro-Palestinian professors that offended some Jewish students.

In 2002, hundreds of Harvard students protested when a graduating senior was chosen to deliver a commencement speech entitled, "The American Jihad." The student, Zayed Yasin, who received a death threat, said his speech was a defense of the meaning of jihad as a nonviolent struggle to do right. After negotiations with a representative of Harvard's Jewish community, Mr. Yasin changed the title to "Of Faith and Citizenship," and delivered his remarks under tight security.

Later in 2002, Harvard College's English Department canceled a campus reading by a poet who had once referred in verse to the Israeli Army as a "Zionist SS." and had criticized American-born Jewish settlers. As at Hamilton, professors at Harvard said they had not known about the remarks of the poet, Tom Paulin, before inviting him.

As Hamilton was trying to contain the outrage on Tuesday, political and university officials in Colorado were criticizing Mr. Churchill.

Gov. Bill Owens, a Republican, called on him to resign from the university, while Representative Mark Udall, a Democrat, said in a statement that the professor was "factually inaccurate" about the terrorist attacks and owed the families of victims an apology. Mr. Churchill gave up his chairmanship of the ethnic studies department this week, and a spokeswoman said that the university's governing body, the nine-member Board of Regents, would meet Thursday to discuss his future.

Actually, the reaction of being repelled by 'repellent' is how we test the decency and morality of a people...

Deciding to not provide your podium to a total jerk is NOT a matter of free speech.

When the speaker is someone from the American Nazi Party, they seem to understand the issue correctly. They only stumble over themselves when the offended person is a leftist.

The real telling part of this whole episode is that Churchill had been the Chair of the Department of Ethics at CU!!

Not only a jerk....He's a fraud and a phoney.
He tries to portay himself as native American.
Native American leaders have challenged him, and he's unable to prove his supposed Cherokee heritage.
He has subsequently been denounced by native Americans.
His days as a professor in Colorado are numbered.

GOOD! Get him where it will hurt the most -- his pocketbook! BTW -- If he truly believed the tripe he spews, he would not be on the lecture circuit earning extra money. Isn't that capitalistic and doesn't he eschew everything that capitalistic America stands for?? Hypocrite!

Oh, he can speak alright. No one except the college has the power to deny him that.
They just have to be prepared to accept the consequences of the free speech of others in response.

Lies plain and simple. This guy is not Solomon Rushdie - it wasn't security that was the deciding factor, it was damage control on their own reputation. How about honesty for a change Ms. Stewart? We've had enough spin lately.

Is Ms. Stewart the same academic who had to leave the President of Harvard's speech, sick to her stomach, when he opined that men and women have different characteristics?

Typical America hating liberal. I really wish these folks would learn about what they are talking about. I've seen reports that Saddam would not allow the kids to receive the medicines sent. He wanted them to die in a ploy to have the sanctions removed. I wish I could find that thread.

People fail to grasp one very simple concept about the freedom of speech. Freedom to speak does not mean anyone has to listen to you. If I refuse to pay money or even show up to hear you, I am not infringing on your freedom of speech, I am exercising my right not to hear you.

I don't have a link, but I will paraphrase what I've read and tell you the names of some of the people who have denounced him :
Susan Harjo, President of the Morningstar Institute, has called him a liar. She said in 15yrs of interviews and investigations, he hasn't been able to come up with a single Indian ancestor.
And Vernon Bellecourt, an American Indian Movement activist in Minneapolis, calls him a fraud.
Churchill claims to be a member of the Keetoowah Cherokee, but that tribe has issued "associate membership" cards in the past, and even designated Clinton as a member.

Hamilton College is a very pricey institution--the tuition is over $30,000 a year (more expensive than Harvard or Princeton).

The one concept which seems to elude President Stewart and the Hamilton faculty is decency--that inviting this piece of pondscum to the campus offends a sense of decency.

On Jan. 26, the Hamilton College president declared:
Hamilton, like any institution committed to the free exchange of ideas, invites to its campus people of diverse opinions, often controversial.... We expect that many of those who strongly disagree with Mr. Churchill's comments will attend his talk and make their views known. This is the process of both academic freedom and freedom of speech.
Today, we get:
We have done our best to protect what we hold most dear, the right to speak, think and study freely. But there is a higher responsibility that this institution carries, and that is the safety and security of our students, faculty, staff and the community in which we live .... I have made the decision to cancel this event in the interest of protecting those at risk.
Hmmm... the First amendment must be upheld above all, except, oops, fear. So much for principle.

What a disgusting spectacle coming in and around the world-shaking vote in Iraq, where where husbands and wives went to the polls separately so that should one be killed their children would still have a parent. People risked death and some got it in expressing their democratic rights. And Hamilton College is afraid.

Heh, Hamilton, you who so love the First amendment (except that nasty bit about free assembly when it comes to fraternities): try out the Second amendment for a change if you really mean to defend your free speech. Or is it not so free, after all?
