    I’m honestly not sure why most people go to college these days. It doesn’t seem to be for occupational readiness, because many of these majors aren’t in the least bit employable (outside of academia). It’s not to grow children into adults, because they’re being treated as though they’re in kindergarten. Students might want a degree in confirmation bias, but is that what their parents are expecting when they write the checks? Case in point: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs has a course on rhetoric that is requiring students to read anti-Trump materials, Campus Reform reported. The best part? The...

    [University of Colorado education professor, Cherly E.] Matias draws on what's known as "critical race theory" (CRT). Given the heavily politicized nature of the contemporary academy, it should come as no surprise that CRT is a racialized version of Marxism and all of the rage among legions of academics. I had always looked upon my six-year-old son as a blessing. But now I realize that he is a disease. My wife, my parents, my grandparents, and every member of my family, both living and deceased, are likewise a disease. But if you are reading this right now, and you are...

    A tenured California professor is the latest academic to be accused of re-writing their personal history when claiming Cherokee heritage. Andrea Smith, an associate professor at the University of California Riverside and a noted scholar in Native American studies, has been called out by critics who say she, like former Harvard Law professor Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D- Mass., and Ward Churchill, a former University of Colorado professor who infamously likened 9/11 victims to Nazis, used the phony claims to enhance her faculty pedigree.

    Why was America so shocked by homegirl hoaxer Rachel Dolezal? The spray-tanned con artist, who resigned this week as head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of (Artificially) Colored People, is the inevitable outcome of academia's cult of manufactured victimhood. College campuses have been grooming a cadre of professional minority fakers and fraudsters for decades. The notorious pretendians Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren faked their Native American status to bolster their faculty credentials at the University of Colorado and Harvard, respectively. It was a mutually beneficial racket for all poseur parties involved. Churchill and Warren...

    Ward Churchill (remember him?) references the book, Smallpox and the American Indian, during his testimony in his civil suit against the University of Colorado at the City and County Building in Denver, Colorado March 23, 2009. Churchill is suing the University of Colorado for wrongful termination. AP photo. Today, I picked up 2 kids I carpool to the gymnastics club from their magnet school, as I do every Monday.

    Ward Churchill Redux? by: Deborah Lambert, April 27, 2009 The Ward Churchill saga is far from over. After the U. of Colorado prof was fired for plagiarism, a jury ruled that he was the victim of a “wrongful firing suit,” according to the AP and other sources. Churchill was elated by the latest turn of events, and reiterated his firing for plagiarism was “just a cover, adding that he never would have been fired if he hadn’t called the World Trade Center victims ‘little Eichmanns.’” All Churchill wants is to be reinstated at his old job. However, he’ll have to...

    DENVER - The University of Colorado has agreed to pay two women $2.85 million to settle a lawsuit alleging they were sexually assaulted by football players and recruits, school officials said Wednesday. The allegations had sparked a football recruiting scandal at the school, prompted broad university reforms and led to a shake-up of its top leaders. University spokesman Ken McConnellogue said the school also agreed to hire an adviser to monitor compliance with federal laws governing equal treatment of women and add a position in the university Office of Victim Assistance. The agreement came two months after an appellate court...

    Embattled Colorado Professor Files Complaint Against Texas Detractor The Associated Press Published: Jun 9, 2005 BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, whose essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to Nazis led to an investigation into his scholarship and ethnicity, has filed a complaint against one of his accusers. Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s. In an e-mail to The Denver Post Wednesday, Brown said Churchill...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill has written that "unquestionably, America has earned" the attack of 9-11. He calls the attack itself a result of "gallant sacrifices of the combat teams." That the "combat teams" killed only 3,000 Americans, he says, shows they were not "unreasonable or vindictive." He says that in order to even the score with America, Muslim terrorists "would, at a minimum, have to blow up about 300,000 more buildings and kill something on the order of 7.5 million people." To grasp the current state of higher education in America, consider that if Churchill is at any...

    If you think Ward Churchill is controversial in his academic setting, you should see how divisive a force he is in the Indian world. The University of Colorado professor, who has set off a firestorm with the publicizing of his 3-year-old essay rationalizing the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has been a lightning rod for years among those involved in American Indian arts, academics and activism.
  • 9-11 professor trained terrorists (Churchill Alert)

    The University of Colorado professor under fire for calling victims of the 9-11 attacks "Little Eichmans," reportedly trained a domestic terror group. Ward Churchill taught the revolutionary group the Weathermen how to make bombs and fire weapons, according to a Fox News report citing the Jan. 18, 1987 issue of the Denver Post. The revelation is among many reported since Churchill prompted a national furor with publicity of an essay he wrote titled "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens." Written shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, it describes the thousands of American victims who died in...

    A Churchill By Any Other Name By Robin Mullins Boyd February 9, 2005 Ward Churchill shares his surname with one of the pre-eminent figures in world political history, Winston Churchill. That is where the similarities end. The media has been in an uproar since Ward Churchill was "disinvited" to speak at Hamilton College in NY. The invitation was retracted after the public was made aware of the professor's anti-American screed about the September 11 tragedy. The University of Colorado has since started proceedings to evaluate whether Churchill should continue in his tenured position at the university. The uproar centered on...

On Monday, CU administrators announced they had canceled Churchill's planned speech because of security concerns, reported the Denver Post. Earlier this month, Hamilton College in upstate New York canceled a speech by Churchill because of death threats against the professor and its administrators.

    HATE SPEECH, UNLESS YOU'RE A LIBERALBy now you might have heard the saga of Ward Churchill. This is the leftist America-hater that compared the victims of the 9/11 slaughter to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi Holocaust murderer. In case you need a refresher, here's exactly what he said: "The most that can honestly be said of those involved on Sept. 11 is that they finally responded in kind to some of what this country has dispensed to their people as a matter of course. As for those in the World Trade Center, well, really, let's get a grip here, shall we?...

A hearing on the motion is set for 4 p.m., said David Rhone, a spokesman for the group, CU Students for Churchill. Churchill was to speak at 7 p.m. today in the Glenn Miller Ballroom. However, late Monday, CU officials canceled the speech, citing safety concerns.

  • The Genocide That Wasn’t: Ward Churchill’s Research Fraud

    02/08/2005 7:54:20 AM PST · by freespirited · 83 replies · 14,808+ views
    Abstract: This is a work in progress that I am making available due to the current interest in Ward Churchill’s writings. I show that Churchill has committed research fraud, and very possibly committed perjury as well. This article analyzes Churchill’s fabrication of a genocide. Churchill invented a story about the US Army deliberately creating a smallpox epidemic among the Mandan people in 1837 by distributing infected blankets. While there was a smallpox epidemic on the Plains in 1837, it was entirely accidental, the Army wasn’t involved, and nearly every element of Churchill’s story is a total invention. My goal here...
