Ward Churchill is baaaaack!

Although Ward Churchill was finally fired by the University of Colorado, Boulder for plagiarism and dishonest scholarship rather than his 9-11 remarks, you’d never know it from his website at www.wardchurchill.net, aka the “Ward Churchill Solidarity Network,” dedicated to “Defending Academic Freedom and Political Dissent.”

The site includes a petition to reinstate Ward Churchill, and a statement of support from Noam Chomsky.
The prevailing opinion is that Churchill’s departure from CU, “illustrates the lengths to which the right-wing will go in attempting to discredit professors who challenge the status quo.”
