Ward Churchill, Faux Indian Leftist Educator, Loses in CO Supreme Court


Ward Churchill, Leftist Educator, a plagiarist like Joe Biden, a Faux Indian, long before Elizabeth Warren discovered she was 1/32 Cherokee, has lost his bid before the Colorado Supreme Court to get his old job back, after he compared 9/11 victims to Adolph Eichmann.

Ward Churchill, lost his appeal to get his job back after he compared Sept. 11 victims with a Nazi, will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court after the Colorado Supreme Court ruled against him.

His termination in 2007 came after an essay he wrote describing some victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as “little Eichmanns,” a reference to Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi leader who helped orchestrate the Holocaust.

In its ruling, the Colorado Supreme Court said Churchill had five opportunities to present his own witnesses, cross-examine opposing witnesses and argue his case before the board following allegations Churchill plagiarized some of his academic writings, fabricated evidence and violated the university’s academic standards.

“Although we are mindful that a full-fledged, years-long investigation into a professor’s academic record taken in bad faith could chill the continued exercise of free speech, we conclude that the federal case law in this area is too unsettled to defeat the regents’ claim of qualified immunity,” the state Supreme Court judges ruled.

A civil jury in 2009 found the school unlawfully fired Churchill but awarded him only $1 in damages. However, a Denver District judge set aside the verdict and said university regents, who are elected, are a “quasi-judicial” panel with immunity from the lawsuit.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer phony.

    To be clear, he was fired for being a plagiarist, not so much his disgusting theories about “Little Eichmans.”

      The Nazi comparison was just icing on the cake. They’d been trying to get rid of this turkey for years.

    It’s funny that all the Marxist agitators want us to believe that all native peoples are wannabe communists.

      The tribal mentality does lend itself to socialism, IMO.
      The clans and tribes were somewhat socialist in order.

      The real sad part is that the victims mentality of marxist cultural social justice
      is what keeps folks dependent on the lie of government is
      watching out for the minorities..

      They don’t see themselves as the communist Cloward/Piven cannon fodder for the statist agenda they are used for.

      Ammunition for capitalist destruction.

    A naturalized citizen from Checoslavakia asked me a few years ago…
    Whats a matter with the Americans…Can’t they see what the Democrats are doing here in America? I told her not even the conservitives see it for what IT REALLY IS…
    She was shocked..She said she left a communist country to see what freedom was and now feared she would be right back under fascist rule…



    For some reason, though, none of that seems to apply to liberals who, no matter how many times history repeats itself, just can’t seem to wrap their heads around the notion that socialism/communism doesn’t lead to utopia.
    And those are the aware liberals. There are millions of completely delusional ones who are in denial that communism is where Democratic Party leaders want to take this country.

    Conservatives have seen it for years and been labeled fringe lunatics for their troubles. What I think is most damning, however, is that legal immigrants who have actually lived in tyrannical countries can see the changes for the worse in America that liberals deny.

    I recall an elderly Japanese couple I met in a rally for Israel a few years ago. They were so proud to be American citizens now, but they recounted what it had been like to live in Imperial Japan, and they told me with tears welling in their eyes how sad it made them to see so many of the changes and actions President Obama brought were like what they had lived through under Hirohito in WWII.

    I’ve met survivors of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union who have said the same thing, that Obama is moving our republic toward a socialist tyranny.

    This past weekend, I got to hear a presentation by Irene Szucs, a Los Angeles restaurant manager who grew up in Hungary under the Soviet regime. She spoke about how when she was a child and her parents would listen to the BBC on the radio or criticize the government, they would always close the window shades and speak in whispers.

    The walls have ears, she was told. As a child, Szucs said, she would search the family’s home looking for these “ears,” but as she grew up she came to understand as she saw neighbors and family friends simply disappear after criticizing the government.

      I know a few Russians and Eastern Europeans. They all say, in effect, “What the hell are you people doing!? You must be nuts.” I’d love to see a TV program that interviewed Eastern Europeans on Obama.

    Another wannabe indian bites the dust. These guys like churchill give all natives a bad name when they aren’t even of native ancestry.

    Another Pretendian? Falsely claiming Native American heritage really is the easiest way leftist white people can get access to the affirmative action goodies, that they are too incompetent to earn on their own.

    Is that an American Indian Movement (AIM) sign in the background of the picture? Lets see here… seizure of the Bureau of Indian Affairs national headquarters, 71-day armed standoff with the feds at Wounded Knee and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and I believe they took over the jail in Devils Lake for a spell too. Fun group.

    The guy insulted and pushed people around because he was granted tenure and thought that he was immune to punishment. That is what tenure does to a liberal, instead of viewing it as the right to express themselves thoughtfully, many take it as the right to bully others. But he forgot that there are some things even the most liberal academic will not tolerate and that is stealing the work of another liberal academic. Other than for that, this piece of scum would still be stinking up academia.

    This is one of those cases that cries out for a “loser pays” statute.

    Few real Indians protest the false ones and some even embrace them, they seem to feel that they are using each other to the same ends.
