Ward Churchill: Heading Back to the Classroom?

Yesterday a Denver jury ruled that Ward Churchill, the disgraced former Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, had been wrongly fired from his job there in 2007. Churchill, the liar and American Indian-imposter who considers the U.S. to be a genocidal nation, had been relieved of his $115,000 post as tenured professor because of research misconduct — specifically, plagiarism and fabrication.


According to the jury, however, the real (and insufficient) reason for which Churchill was fired was because of an essay he had written disparaging the victims of 9/11 as “little Eichmanns” who, like obedient Nazis, silently and passively acquiesced while their nation brutalized innocents around the world.


Though the court awarded Churchill only $1 in damages (the minimum allowed by law), the University will be liable for hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and may have to give him his old job back. A reinstatement motion is being filed, and a hearing may be held as early as June.


What type of signal would Churchill’s re-instatement send?


Former University of Colorado President Hank Brown — who supported the firing of Churchill — said it would be a “travesty of justice” if the school is forced to re-hire the professor. “This is someone who has disgraced his profession and disgraced his academic colleagues,” Brown elaborated. “To require the university to hire someone who is dishonest is a real travesty.”


So who is Ward Churchill?


Regarding the Sept. 11 attacks, he had this to say: “[I]f you make it a practice of killing other people’s babies for personal gain … eventually they’re going to give you a taste of the same thing.”


Years ago, he was involved with the Students for a Democratic Society, which aspired to overthrow America’s democratic institutions and remake its government in a Marxist image. He also joined the Weather Underground, a violent domestic terror group that declared “war on Amerikkka.”


Churchill has written books likening the United States to Nazi Germany, and as late as 2004 he suggested that “more 9/11s” may be “necessary” to awaken Americans to the consequences of their country’s evil policies. Moreover, he has condemned Israel as a “terrorist state,” and he proudly counts the former terrorist Bill Ayers and the America-hating radical attorney Lynne Stewart as two of his staunchest supporters.


With yesterday’s jury ruling and the prospect of Churchill’s possible re-instatement, he may soon be back in the classroom poisoning the collective mind of a new generation.
