Ward Churchill Speech Dubs Critics "Little Eichmanns", Calls Bob Kerrey "Serial Killer"
Ward Churchill, flanked by "security" detail
Mostly rehashed drivel from "Chief Shitting Bull", although he paints the president of the New School, Robert Kerrey, the former senator of Nebraska, as a "mass murder and serial killer to boot" (via Michelle Malkin):
An ethnic studies professor from the University of Colorado, Ward Churchill, received a standing ovation last night from a crowd of more than 200 New School students after blaming the 2001 World Trade Center attacks on America's support of Israel and its sanctions against Iraq in 1996.Churchill, who apparently is a afraid of his own shadow, travels with the usual coterie of sycophants to each of his speaking engagements, delivering ad hoc name-calling ("little Eichmanns" and "serial killer"), historical obfuscation, a painful lack of logic, and rhetorical flourishes that only roosting chickens would enjoy.
In a two-hour speech at the New School titled "Sterilizing History: The Fabrication of Innocent Americans," delivered without notes [of course, this stuff only exists in his head--ed.], Mr. Churchill traced what he called a pattern of mass murder as American foreign policy from the time of the country's inception to the events of September 11, 2001, which he said the country was essentially asking for.
Mr. Churchill also called the president of the New School, Robert Kerrey, a former senator of Nebraska, a "mass murder and serial killer to boot" for having served in Thanh Phong, Vietnam. Mr. Churchill also served in Vietnam, an act for which he said he has spent the rest of his life apologizing.
Mr. Churchill received cheers from the audience for comparing Mr. Kerrey to the serial killer Charles Manson. "That's who you've got moral equivalency in the president's chair at this institution," Mr. Churchill said. "How about a cage rather than a president's suite?"
Mr. Churchill was invited to the New School by a student group, the Women of Color. The university was not involved in the invitation.
"We brought him here because he offers a framework in which we can conceptualize the struggles our community is dealing with," a junior at the New School, Jamila Thompson, said. "A person's work should be engaged critically, and his work allows us to build broad-based networks with Native Americans, Latinos, and anti-racist whites."
. . .
"The only people who consider me controversial are little Eichmanns themselves," he said, again inciting peels of laughter from the audience of New School students.
While campus police were out in force and metal detectors were set up outside the auditorium for Mr. Churchill's appearance due to fear of a possible attack against the professor, the talk drew little protest from the student body.
Want a rational critique instead of paranoid leftist fearmongering? Not from Ward Churchill, sultan of self-promotion and ambassador of academic fraud.
It should be no surprise that he is lecturing on "fabrication", a topic of intimate familiarity.
