Skip to comments.Ward Churchill (5th Columnist) Busted for Copyright Infringement, Plagiarism, assaults cameraman
Posted on 02/25/2005 7:52:29 AM PST by Thanatos
Evidence has been found that 5th Columinst Ward Churchill copied a painting by reknown artist Thomas E. Mails
Churchill's Serigraph is a mirror image of the Miles painting.
Churchill made the serigraph in question in 1981 and called it "Winter Attack." He printed 150 copies and sold one of them to Duke Prentup for about $100.
On Video, confronting Churchill about the obvious copyright violation by CBS4 Reporter Raj Chohan, Churchill then attacked the cameraman filming the incident.

Also, Churchill claims he earned a Bachelors Degree and a Master Degree at the Sangamon State University in Illinois (where 5th Columinst were created) but school officials cannot locate his Master's Thesis. Colorado University regents expressed concerns that a person be appointed professor without a doctorate.

Article by "Teachers for a Democratic Culture", a group who's goals are "A coalition of academics committed to preserving education as a force for social change and as a site of cultural pluralism". Basically indoctrinating students into the beliefs of Marxism, Communism, and Progressive Thought. This is the 5th columnist stuff.
This article talks about the Sangamon State University where Churchill received his BA and MA in communications and gives history about how this "School" whole purpose was to create 5th Columnist. From "Radical University" to Handmaiden of the Corporate State

Article Written in the 80's by Ward Churchill about "Indian Art" and where he tries to pass his stuff off as Indian art.

Interview of Ward Churchill by Sawn Setaro where Churchill talks about how he hates Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell and about how He has not done art since 1982, and that his associate card with the Keetoowah Cherokee and he say's "Not that it means much other then not being prosecuted under the basis of the Arts and Crafts act". (Look around page 10 of the interview) He goes on to talk about how he wants to be hired by Colorado University as an Indian so he could do his "5th Column" stuff to indoctrinate students in Marxism, Communism, and Progressive thought.
QUOTE:" WC: In the way that I was talking about, and by trying to get other people who approach things in the same way in. It's an infiltration of the system or of the structure. But that's kind of a hard fight. They've been owing me a position for years, and I haven't been able to fill it, because they always need another British historian or whatever, and I'm going to have to have a major cataclysm, I think, in order to get it. That's not really how I want to spend my time and energy, but at a certain point, I'm going to have to, and they're imposing that.
WC: Sure. You've got to set priorities. You get resistance at every level, and from every direction, and it's a question of where you're going to put your time and energy in order to get the most bang for your buck. In a way that becomes an individual choice when there's relatively few of us. It's not like there's this big collective process here. There's three Indians in the entire faculty of the University of Colorado, one of whom is continuously gone, writing her novels, the other of whom is retiring at the end of this semester, and me. So it's not exactly like we sit down and come up with this collective strategy of what we need to do (laughs)." UNQUOTE.

Article at Indian Country Today by Mary Jo King:
Rick Sallinger of CBS4 first asked me what I thought of Churchill before asking me to do the research for him, I told him that I thought Churchill was a jerk. After doing the research, I told Rick "Now I know why he's a Jerk"..
In the 1930's there was a man named Archie Belaney who was an Environmentalist. He decided the only way he could get his activist notions made serious was to become a fake Indian named "Grey Owl".. Grey Owl became a great sensation in the 30's. What the world did not know was that "Grey Owl" was a 5th Columnist trying to pass himself off as an Indian so he could indoctrinate upon a platform so that people would listen to him. Once he was found out, his whole platform collapsed. The story of Ward Churchill reminds me of the story of Grey Owl. The only difference between the two is that Archie Belaney actually had some Indian blood, whereas Churchill has zero, zilch. At least Churchill is not shaming my people, the Chippewa (Ojibwa) as Grey Owl did, but nonetheless, he is shaming all Native Americans with his Marxist views. *(you can watch the movie of Grey Owl, starring Pierce Brosnan)*
What a putz.
OH HOwlin.....Looks like they received the e-mails.
Where is Mikey Moore to save this speaker of truth from those who are lashing out and trying to silence this great American?!?!?!?!?! And Noam Chomsky, and Bill Maher???? Not to mention Bill Clinton, who said post-9-11 we were paying for the terrorism WE caused in our own past?? Stand up, you proud patriots, and defend your newest hero!
In my excitement forgot to ping you!
Ward Churchill has lived his life as one gigantic fraud, multiplied over and over, in every endeavor of his sad existence. I actually pity this lunatic.
Michael Mooreon will be joining him soon. Two idiots in a cell together.
There is a Ward Churchill in every University..... I urge everyone to uncover theirs.
More about your favorite guy!
Chruchill is a communist who justifies his lies in the interest of the "greater purpose."
He is a complete phony.
If he attacked the reporter or cameraman, why isn't he in jail on charges of assault?
L.O.L...sounds like Custers Last Stand...in reverse.
Well good golly miss molly. I just finished the thread from last night. Are we allowed to have this much fun I wonder.
I knew Grey Owl was a fake, but I did not realize he was a Fifth Columnist......hmmmmm
The Ward Churchill/Whoopie Goldberg wing of the Donk Party...
