Posted on 06/13/2006 2:16:41 PM PDT by Starter
Ward Churchill, the professor who called some of the World Trade Center victims “little Eichmanns,” should be fired because of “repeated and deliberate” infractions of scholarship rules, a University of Colorado committee said today.
The recommendation, which came on a 6-3 vote, now goes to university officials for a final decision.
What a tantalizing question! Let's see. SC Justices Ginsburg and Stevens could announce that they're retiring. Hillary could develop Tourette's Syndrome (imagine what she'd have to say about Bill). Castro could drop dead. The citizens of China could revolt against their govt and set up a capitalist republic. Chuck Schumer could develop a terror of cameras and microphones. Sierra Club members could develop an allergy to trees and grass. An American entrepreneur could develop the Mr. Coffee fusion machine shown in Back To The Future Part II, which creates fuel from ordinary househould garbage.
Just for starters.
The problem is, a lib university will hire him immediately. He could end up at Yale or Harvard; they sure competed for the Talibal alqaeda guy. Maybe Ward can get them in a bidding war for him.
I think you're right. The commmittee must have had black-and-white, irrefutable evidence in order to recommend his firing. None of the findings had anything to do with his blatant anti-Americanism or his misuse of his professorship to demogogue his captive audience in the classroom.
It's kind of a win-lose situation for us.
If he's fired, we win. But then he becomes a martyr for the left, gets a million dollar book advance and raises his speaking fees to $15,000 per speech.
No Kidding! This is like watching a ring form on a tree... if you could actually see such a thing.
Okay, that's great. Now all the other universities in our country need to get rid of their excess communist/socialist baggage or lame excuses for professors/associate professors/adjunct professors, etc...
Wow can we add this to the compilations within a very good news week???
he may have called them "Little Eichmann's" but he didn't call them 'harpies' .. give the guy a break !
The conclusion one must draw from such examples isn't that every institution has its bad apples but rather that, at least in the liberal arts in America, moral turpitude and political hucksterism pervades higher education.
Radical criminals with questionable academic credentials flourish in a milieu that bristles with hostility toward real scholars who don't toe the party linewitness the case of former Harvard President Lawrence Summers.
Individuals with prison records or FBI rap sheets don't get into major educational institutions because they fudge their resumes.
They get in because they share the political dogmas of those who hire themand they flourish for the same reason.
Actually, I doubt that he'll keep his position, mainly because his lies about his membership in an Indian tribe have been loudly exposed by the leaders of the tribe (can't recall which one it is), and keeping Churchill on would essentially be delivering a slap in the face to these tribal leaders who are officially-labelled minorities. It is politically incorrect to slap officially-labelled minorities in the face. Investigation has failed to turn up any evidence that Churchill has a drop of non-WhiteEuropean blood, and therefore he is eminently disposable.
Faux professors have jobs thanks to PC BS restrictions.
K-Man cleared of looming indictment.
WC, meet our good friend, Harry Viderchy.
there the segment of America who refer to bin laden as binny
Ward is just the tip of the iceberg.
