This outrageous fool was invited to speak on another topic. But Hamilton College President Joan Hinde Stewart requested that he present his idiotic diatribe condemning the VICTIMS of the attacks on Sep 11. What the hell is happening in our institutions of higher education? And why are taxpayers supporting damn fools like Hinde Stewart? ================================================= http://www.coloradoan.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050201/NEWS01/50201001 New York college cancels appearance by CU professor who compared 9/11 victims to Nazis By William Kates The Associated Press SYRACUSE, N.Y. Citing death threats, an upstate New York college on Tuesday canceled a panel discussion featuring a professor who compared the World Trade Center victims to Nazis. Hamilton College spokesman Michael DeBraggio said multiple death threats were made against both college officials and guest speaker Ward Churchill, who resigned Monday as chairman of the ethnic studies department at the University of Colorado. In an essay written in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Churchill said the World Trade Center victims were little Eichmanns, a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who organized Nazi plans to exterminate Europes Jews. Churchill also spoke of the gallant sacrifices of the combat teams that struck America. The essay attracted little attention until Churchill was invited to speak Thursday at Hamilton College, about 40 miles east of Syracuse, N.Y. Hundreds of relatives of Sept. 11 victims have protested the appearance. Administrators at first moved the scheduled appearance to a building that can seat 2,000, instead of the originally planned 300. Hamilton College President Joan Hinde Stewart had said the college was committed to free speech, however repugnant one might find Mr. Churchills remarks. (The lying bitch is trying to protect her sorry butt. She is the one responsible for Churchill's intended presentation) On Tuesday, however, Stewart sent an e-mail to students, faculty and staff saying the college had a higher responsibility ... and that is the safety and security of the campus community. She said the threats were credible and had been turned over to police. Despite resigning as department chair, Churchill will retain his teaching job. Colorado Gov. Bill Owens called on Churchill to resign his faculty position too, saying taxpayers shouldnt have to subsidize his outrageous and insupportable views. (Resign, hell. Isn't there anyone in Colorado with the balls to FIRE the bastard? He is, after all, being paid by the taxpayers.) If anyone could possibly be compared to the evildoers of Nazi Germany, it is the terrorists of the 21st century who have an equally repugnant disregard for human life, Owens said in a letter to the universitys College Republicans released Tuesday. Churchill did not immediately return telephone messages and e-mails from The Associated Press. In an interview Monday with Denver station KCNC-TV, Churchill said he is not an advocate of violence, but that the attacks were a response to the way the United States treats people abroad. The overriding question that was being posed at the time was why did this happen, why did they hate us so much, and my premise was when you do this to other peoples families and children, that is going to be a natural response, he said.
