The Board of Regents of the University of Colorado will meet today to determine the stripping of a "cancer" left to long among the faculty at the great University located in Bolder, Colorado.
Ward Churchill has been a disgrace and disruptive force in his never earned position as a tenured professor at the U of C. The man doesn't even have PhD and yet was appointed full tenure as professor of Ethnic Studies. A fabricated title for the self proclaimed radical.
Mr.Churchill attended Sangaman State in Illinois where he received a BA and Ma from the "experimental" school for student radicals.Not even a recognized institute of college level education to my knowledge.
Among the other reasons for his being fired, and there are many. Is his claim that he was a member of a Cherokee Indian tribe. This proved to be an honorary membership which has since been revoked, but the "straw that broke the camels back" was his reference to the victims of the World Trade Center disaster on 9/11 as"little Eichmann's".
Professor Churchill's moment of fame came when an essay he had written was disclosed in which he waxed rhapsodic about the September 11 terrorist attacks as "chickens coming home to roost," while vilifying the innocent victims inside the World Trade Center "as little Eichmanns." The article was known to UC Boulder officials long before, and considered normal academic fare. Less well known is the fact that Professor Churchill's academic career and academic collection is built around the theory that the United States is a genocidal nation, worse than Nazi Germany, because its genocides began with its settlement and have continued to the present.
If that were not enough to get this walking cancer out of his "tenure" then maybe you should consider the following pronouncements: In Professor Churchill's view, "revolutionary violence against oppressive America is not only justified, it is indispensable. One of the things I've suggested is that it may be that more 9/11s are necessary. This seems like such a no-brainer that I hate to frame it in terms of actual transformation of consciousness." Lamenting that the terrorism of 9/11 had proved "insufficient to accomplish its purpose" of bringing the United States to its knees, Churchill shrugged, "What the hell? It was worth a try."
This man should not only be fired he should be arrested as a traitor who is inciting violence and sedition!
