Calling All Exterminators: Break Out the Raid

Normally it's advisable to never lose your sense of humor, because once you do, loss of critical perspective is often soon to follow. But there are some moonbats who go so far over the line that it just isn't funny.

Ward Churchill is a University of Colorado Professor of Ethnic Studies who feels that "more 9/11s are necessary," a sick creep so criminally insane as to make other anti-American sociopaths like Michael Moore and Susan Sontag seem almost healthy by comparison. A major hat tip to Slant Point for providing all the data you need to respond directly to this insect and those who make it possible for him to spread some of the vilest propaganda conceivable in the name of higher education.

The World Trade Center and the thousands of innocent civilians working inside when it was attacked were legitimate targets per Professor Churchill, who admits that the victims "were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break."

I can't say I've read Churchill's book On the Justice of Roosting Chickens: Reflections on the Consequences of U.S. Imperial Arrogance and Criminality, in which he reportedly explains why the butchery on 9/11 was a commendable response to US aggression. But I suspect this nugget from the introduction by Chellis Glendinning gives a fair idea of what you might find inside:

The only fitting question for a nation still reeling from the wake-up call of Sept. 11th is, "How can they not hate us?"

It's an unfortunate fact of life that insanity exists in this world, and so does evil, and they sometimes reinforce each other to produce abominations like Ward Churchill. That is why we have mental asylums. But it is not why we have universities. The fact that scum like this is paid to spew their poison in front of young audiences who have paid (or whose parents have paid) for an education is absolutely unconscionable.


This absurd Che Guevara wannabe is a college professor.

I'm writing while traveling in the UK, far from my Pax Americana home. I tell you, while they'd not necessarily cheer this pathetic excuse for a human on (they do insist that they love American PEOPLE but simply loathe our policies and president), they sure buy into not only justification for 9/11 but the wacky conspiracies. Last night I was treated on the telly to a recent 'documentary' that took very seriously those tired 9/11 conspiracy moonbats spouting that the Pentagon was hit not by American Airlines Flight 77 but by a missile (the plane was crashed and hidden in the Atlantic); and that not the heroics of the passengers but a pair of F-16s actually shot down United Flight 93 over PA. Oh, and Bush knew in advance about the attacks, as evident, among other things, by his calm demeanor at the Florida school upon his learning of the second tower attack from Card. I turned the channel before they really got into it with the Twin Towers--I'd rather liked my Indian meal and didn't want to lose it.

I realize that this garbage is probably old hat to most readers of this blog, but I was not so informed -- and now am sickened. Our friends from across the seas take this all seriously, and in proportions that are frightening.

PS: Van Helsing, thanks for providing an anchor for this poor temporary expatriate during my travels overseas!

The programme was on Sky One, which is owned by the same bloke (Murdoch) who owns Fox News, so I guess it's likely to be as accurate and as trustworthy.

Don't be ridiculous, no-one here takes the 9/11 conspiracies any more seriously than they do Gigli or the Elvis conspiracies. If you have Sky One then I guess you probably have a lot of other channels too. Just switch over.

It's true. Most people here do have a deep admiration for most American people. I found that they were generally fun, friendly, welcoming and polite people when I visited the US a few years ago. It is rather the policies of your government that many of us have a problem with. Although not all of us - read the Sun or the Daily Mail if you want a real example of garbage.

Anyway I hope you have a good time in the UK. If you let me know whereabouts you're going then I'll recommend some things to see. And is it just the UK or Europe too?

Was thinking on commenting on Herr Doktor Churchill, but this forum is a valid enough place.

Like the picture of the bloke. I think Ted Nugent would like to meet him to discuss proper use of firepower. Truthfully Churchill is that rarest of terrorist, the chic terrorist poser. Who cavorts sporting an evil killing fields AK-47 assault rifle in the safe confines of the nurturing intellectual womb that is the United States.

As for his ideas it can be summed up as such: if the United States was not such a towering behemoth of economic success, then the rest of the world would like the United States. So he reviles and defames the dead of the World Trade Center by describing them as servents of evil American capitalism who deserve not one tear. And he does this from within the United States because he knows this country lacks such things as Peoples Courts, the NKVD, or the SS; so he can be provacative without running the risk of being sent to a re-education/gulag/concentration camp.

When examined in this light, Churchill is as I said a chic terroist poser who lacks the real cajones to stand up for his beliefs in areas where it matters like al-Sadr City or Gaza.

Aristotle said "Evil draws men together." I think we can all agree that this individual long ago was drawn to the evil, dark, far side and found a home. And, from that land he spews and flings out his worthless dung. If the things he said came out of the pie hole of some extremist Islamist freak, it would be simply what they do on an everyday basis. But, this wisdom came from the Chairman of a department at a major university. Sounds as though, the Buffaloes have been buffaloed.
To paraphase Fats Domino, "A lot of fellas at The University of Colorado have a B.A., M.D., or Ph.D. Unfortunately, they don't have a C.L.U.E."
My sympathies are extended to the students, faculty, and staff at this institution?. Happy "hating America" to all of you.

To Mark: Thanks much, but I've just returned home after my UK business trip. Indeed the hospitality I experienced from your countrymen and -women was memorable and I appreciate your offer. Had the best conversations with taxi drivers I've ever had (and in unbroken English at that). And yes, after my post I flipped more channels and found... Fox News! :-)

Tangent #2 on Ward Churchill, Ph.Don’t: indeed, I can't help but feel how sad poor old Winston must be to see his surname (thankfully not his bloodline, I assume!) tarnished by such human garbage. In fact I just looked over the REAL W. Churchill’s Sinews of Peace speech and thought how remarkable it is today, given the West’s battle against Islamofacist terrorists and anarchists. The final sentence gives me goosebumps with its moral certitude mixed with an implicit and prescient premonition about UN failure to function as it was intended (vis a vis certain unnamed SC members’ hypocrisy and avarice):

If we adhere faithfully to the Charter of the United Nations and walk forward in sedate and sober strength seeking no one's land or treasure, seeking to lay no arbitrary control upon the thoughts of men; if all British moral and material forces and convictions are joined with [America’s] own in fraternal association, the high-roads of the future [read: fighting tyranny] will be clear, not only for us but for all, not only for our time, but for a century to come.

I'm not a poli-sci person, so surely I'm missing plenty of other gems therein. My question: how would Churchill have reacted to Bush's impressive (and rather ambitious) inauguration speech?
