    Professor Ward Churchill Fails to Reclaim Job After Comparing 9/11 Victims to Nazi

    Professor Ward Churchill Fails to Reclaim Job After Comparing 9/11 Victims to Nazi Leader


    "DENVER A judge refused Tuesday to reinstate a University of Colorado professor who was fired on plagiarism charges after he likened some Sept. 11 terrorist attack victims to a Nazi leader."

    "the ruling means Ward Churchill cannot return to the classroom even though he won a lawsuit in April arguing that his firing was politically motivated.

    Churchill wrote an essay after the 2001 terrorist attacks calling the World Trade Center victims "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi who helped orchestrate the Holocaust. "



    "University President Bruce Benson issued a statement saying the judge had "appropriately applied the law." "This ruling recognizes that the regents have to make important and difficult decisions. The threat of litigation should not be used to influence those decisions," he said"





    After reading this whole thing my question is...Who exactly pays this jaktastical guy to lecture? Berkley cant have that many bookings to support him.
    Thank you

    I do not doubt his firings were politically motivated.Motivated in the sense that if he didn't compare the victims of a terrorist attack to Little Adolph Eichmans then most likely they wouldn't have did some digging. Just like that Jesse MacBeth who went around claiming to be a Army Ranger and veteran of the Iraq War and telling every leftist what they want to hear for fame. They both would have gotten away with their misdeeds if they didn't get on the radar.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thank God that seething bastard won't get his job back. His firing should have been political, because his statement was political. I hope he never teaches again. Liberals need to learn they can't spew their hate in the classroom.

    I would take offense to this statement because it inaccurately labels a legitimate political ideology and ties it directly to an extremest view. I would not characterize is views as liberal, but rather just ignorant.

    With that said, I would certainly approve of educators such as this fool to be question whether they have the competence to teach. It is not so much what they say, but how they came to these conclusions. It does not matter to me whether I necessarily agree, but more so is there a rational, logical, and factual basis to these conclusions. For someone like him, these do not exist, nor does he care to to attempt any rationalization which is why I would agree he should lose his position. His role is to educate, not make people more ignorant than when they come into the classroom.

    The extremist view is running the party, where have you been?

    Since when is comparing the victims of a terrorist attack to little Adolf Eichmann not extreme?

    Trying to have a honest discourse here..

    I am objecting to the statement that gives a blanket address to all Liberals and applying that Ward Churchill is representative of Liberals. This is both false and dishonest implication.

    So are the Neo-Nazis then representative of all conservatives? Should we disallow any conservative to teach in any school because of far right wingnuts?

    He clearly called it an "extremist view." Drink some coffee.

    That's not what he's saying. He's saying taking Ward Churchhill and using him as an example for "All liberals" is wrong because he is an extreme. It'd be like saying All Conservatives need to learn they can't blame things like 9/11 or Katrina on "The Gays" because one extreme conservative made the comment.

    I tend to agree. I haven't read anything to suggest he has a political affiliation. Churchill is an anti-American, anti-establishment propagandist, combined with what seems to be all the traits of a pathological liar. He has support from both sides of the political spectrum who hold extremist views.
