Ward Churchill, a controversial activist for academic freedom, at a speech at Trinity University on Tuesday accused the university's president, Dennis Ahlburg, of a smear campaign against him some years ago in Colorado.
He also invoked the Hitler salute of Sieg Heil to Ahlburg's wife, Penelope Harley, as she stormed out of the auditorium after defending her husband in front of the audience of students and faculty.
This personal vindictiveness in an institution that has welcomed you ... I find very, very hard to listen to. And quite frankly, pretty darn insulting, said Harley, before leaving for her son's soccer match.
Ahlburg was in New York, but was reached by phone later.
He comes in and insults me in my absence... and screams Sieg Heil' at my wife? Ahlburg said. This is a champion for free speech that America does not need. The only speech he wants to hear is his own voice.
David Spener, a professor of sociology and anthropology, invited Churchill to speak as part of a program to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Known for his inflammatory rhetoric, Churchill wrote that the attacks were justified by U.S. sanctions in the Middle East, and called the World Trade Center workers little Eichmanns who formed a technocratic corps at the very heart of America's global financial empire.

You went a lot later than me!
By the time I'd graduated from Auburn, tuition had quintupled to $125/quarter!
One of which might actually work - if you're lucky, and the site is not particularly smart.
