Posted on 03/22/2006 12:16:02 PM PST by GaryL
On April 6-7, 2006, Students for Academic Freedom will host its First National Academic Freedom Conference featuring a debate between Students for Academic Freedom Chairman David Horowitz and University of Colorado-Boulder Professor Ward Churchill. The topic for debate will be: Can Politics Be Taken Out Of The Classroom, and Should It Be?
The debate will be held Thursday evening on the campus of George Washington University in Washington, DC. Young Americas Foundation and the Center for the Study of Popular Culture are the co-hosts of the debate. Seating for the debate is limited and will be determined by George Washington University. Conference registration does not guarantee admission to the debate.
The conference will also feature U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander, House Leader Jack Kingston, and Colorado high school student Sean Allen whose recording of an anti-American rant by his geography teacher, Jay Bennish, created a national furor over classroom indoctrination. The conference (apart from the debate) will take place at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, DC.
The conference is free for students, non-profit employees
Is your sister still a liberal?
Thank you, this is bound to be a hoot!
"...Ward Churchill would do himself some good to express a profound apology to people he has offended and misled. He should also come clean about his appropriated American Indian identity. "
Increase Mail's piece by 109%, reverse it, and the two overlap perfectly, down to the shape of the grass and the position of each rider's feathers, even the position of the horses' legs.Yet Churchill still maintains it is an original composition.(Yes, Ward, but why are all your Indians left-handed in the piece?)
I'd sure like to be wrong on this one Frou.
But these slimey types don't play by the rules ordinarily.
Count on 'street theatre' and extraordinary antics that could rob Horowitz of any decent airing. (This guy is vintage "counter culture')
Expect the unexpected.
Here's a television heads-up for the forum.
Horowitz will be on a segment of BookTV (C-Span2) this weekend, talking about
his book on the professors (such as Ward Churchill).
Detail are at the link:
Reminiscent of the Chesterton / Shaw Debates, with two INTELLIGENT
participants. Wait... er... never mind. Churchill's gonna get creamed.
Can you ping me when you post what happens at the debate?
I'd love to see this in person, though I think Churchill will run out of the building quicker than Feingold...
Oh that oughta be fun!
my bet is Warddy doesnt show
Unfortunately, yes. She told me never to send her stuff like that again; that she didn't need to see it. Well, we were raised by liberal Unitarians and had been spoon fed this pablum from birth. I was shown the truth and the light by 9/11.
I'll put you on the ping list for a report on the debate. I'll have my son write a review for us.
Thomas Sowell's "Inside American Education" documents numerous ways teachers attack parental authority.
Teachers have asked third-graders, "How many of you ever wanted to beat up your parents?"
In a high school health class, students were asked, "How many of you hate your parents?"
I would love to attend. I hope Davis asks about the plaigiarized art and articles..
Thanks for the ping.
I'll be sure to try and tune in. I can't wait to see this debate!!!!
Thanks for the info--I'll certainly watch it if it's on.
