Ward Churchill Back in News Again

Sheesh, I thought we were rid of the "cigar store Indian!" After investigating charges of plagiarism, falsification and other intellectual misconduct, the University of Colorado Boulder's Board of Regents voted 8 to 1 to give Churchill the boot. However, Churchill has decided to fight back in court.

David Lane, Churchill's attorney, said his client's dismissal simply marks a change in venue for the dispute.

"We're out of kangaroo court and going into real court," he said.

Lane plans to file a lawsuit in Denver Wednesday alleging Churchill's First Amendment rights were violated. He says Churchill was targeted because of his views.

You know, I caught part of Lane's interview on Hannity and Colmes last night, and he was being a real @ss. All bluff and bluster, rude, and dismissive. I'd hate to have that guy coming home to me every night!

Churchill and his lawyer claim that he was fired because of his writings and speeches post-9/11 that essentially blame America and the 9/11 victims themselves for what happened to them. Basically, in Churchill's mind, we deserved it. And unfortunately, it's what a lot of the intellectual types who swell the ranks of our colleges and universities believe.

But I don't think it's his attitude about 9/11 that got him fired -- no, I think the controversy around him brought attention to his other works, and that's when charges of plagiarism started rolling in. Had no one raised the alarm about his offensive essay "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens," then his other intellectually dishonest activities likely wouldn't have gotten noticed either, and he'd still be claiming American Indian heritage and spreading his special brand of "blame America first" vitriol to students at UC Boulder.

It's one of the dangers of publicity -- there will always be someone looking through your laundry to see if there's anything you forgot to wash. Churchill relished being in the national spotlight two years ago, and he's back in it with the lawsuit. But hey, "there's no such thing as bad publicity as long as they spell your name right."

Perfessors Gone Wild: Shades of Ward Churchill

Ward Churchill had a friend, Ruben G. Mendoza, a teaching assistant at the University of Colorado, Denver. Rubens department Chair Dr. Moore, for abusing students, booted him from the university, against which Mendoza promptly filed suit. Ruben, an ersatz Chicano, resurfaced as an activist, and got fast-tracked to tenure at CSU Monterey Bay. Mendoza became the nosebleed of the fledgling university. Churchill was invited to CSUMB by Ruben to speak at a weeklong gathering of the clan. Mendoza also engages in academic misconduct, so far without consequence. The Duke lacrosse team fiasco shows that educators have created a phony cultural paradigm that distorts reality. And, no one exploits phony paradigms, obfuscates truth, or games the system like the Clintons. Point being, miscreants like Churchill and Mendoza have powerful political backers: the fish rots from the head.

Set the Wayback Machine for 23 August 1995: a hot day in the nations capitol. But 3000 miles due west on Californias Central Coast, a constellation of events was unfolding that would have a profound effect on Western civilization; plunge it into decades of war. Yet, this cataclysmic upheaval was only part of the plan. Bill Clinton picked up the telephone. It was his Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, calling from a payphone in Monterey. Bill held the receiver at arms length and gazed at the tasteful floral arrangement that adorned the Oval Office. Leons disembodied voice filled the room. What now, asked Hillary. Its that damn college, mouthed Bill. There was, no getting out. Hillary nodded, just tell Leon hell get whatever he needs: http://theseedsof9-11.com
