Skip to comments.Jay Ambrose: 2 professors, 2 stories and 1 tale of political correctness
Posted on 10/08/2005 9:25:17 AM PDT by george76
Ward Churchill, the let's-pretend Indian who rode political-correctness to a departmental chairmanship at one university, will soon be spouting his anti-American, murderer-friendly hatred at another university, one where they brand you a racist and shut you up if you don't toe the politically correct party line.
It's the stuff of unbelievable satire...
Let's start with Churchill, who gained tenure at the University of Colorado and was elevated to department head despite lacking a Ph.D. and having a record worse than undistinguished. His primary qualification, it seems, is that he was part Indian, only he isn't.
This same man has spoken approvingly of violence against U.S. military officers and others and has said he wants the United States "out of existence altogether."
DePaul University, which quit affording teaching duties to an untenured professor without the hearing its rules require after he got into an argument with students some of them Muslims at an activities fair.
Thomas Klocek, who had taught at the university for 14 years, defended Israel against students attacking the country for its treatment of Palestinians.
According to a dean's statement, Klocek had attacked the "religious beliefs and ethnicity" of the students, which seems far from the case.
Here's the kicker. Churchill, who received support from 199 fellow faculty members saying in a petition that he should escape investigation for anything, will be speaking on the DePaul campus this month, while Klocek, who received support from only a few of his fellow teachers, is seeking redress through a slander suit.
My guess is he will win it, but my guess is also that leftists with little true respect for freedom are winning the heart and soul of our universities.

Can't anybody write English anymore? Appalling.
No surprise. Liberals, of course, are not interested in truth or freedom at all.
It certainly is. I stopped to re-read that monstrosity, thinking that the deficiency in understanding was my own. Obviously, others recognize bad writing when assaulted by its presentation.
I delight in simply cruising through the Univ. of Mass. campus frequently... my "I'm the NRA," "Proud Vietnam Vet," and "Leftist Idiots for Stalin" bumper stickers almost always get a wonderful reaction.
Honestly, most bad writing is caused by sentences which are written for the ear rather than the eye and are too long.
