More on Ward Churchill at Hamilton in today's New York Times - Unrest on Campus Over Speaker Who Sees U.S. Role in 9/11. Some details reported that haven't appeared in other sources:

The college newspaper, The Spectator, published a photograph of Professor Churchill wearing a camouflage jacket, beret and sunglasses while posing with an assault weapon.


A peaceful guy!

Churchill has also responded to his critics:

For his part, Professor Churchill said in an interview, "My reaction is astonishment. This is a three-year-old piece that has been spun mercilessly and distorted. The comparison was of technocrats. Eichmann is someone who, after all, killed no one. He made the trains run on time." . . . "Of course I have sympathy for the World Trade Center victims," he added, "the same sympathy I have for victims who are Iraqi and Palestinians."


Among other things, Churchill is abominably ignorant about Eichmann's role - he was a prime organizer of the Final Solution, and as such, one of the Nazis' greatest mass murderers. And as I said before, how could one regard the restaurant workers, cleaners, and illegal aliens in the WTC as any kind of equivalent to Nazis? (Not that I regard any of the people working there in that way!)

  1. It would be worth your while to do more research on Churchill yourself. You clearly have not followed up on his work or on the articles written since. Your ignorance is startling.

  3. Dear anonymous - have any suggestions? I have looked over some of other statements published on the internet, and I haven't been impressed, but perhaps he has written something I'd find useful.
