College Far-Leftist propagandizing finally coming under pressure: "A Hamilton College program director has resigned after igniting a furor by inviting to the campus a controversial professor who compared Sept. 11 victims to Nazis. Nancy Rabinowitz said she was resigning "under duress" as director of the Kirkland Project for the Study of Gender, Society and Culture. She will continue to teach comparative literature.... Her departure comes on the heels of a Feb. 3 speaking invitation extended to University of Colorado Professor Ward Churchill, whose essay written shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks compared the World Trade Center victims to "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann who ensured the smooth running of the Nazi system. Rabinowitz also drew fire in November when the program she headed offered a temporary teaching position to 1960s radical Susan Rosenberg.... Churchill was forced to resign as a department chairman at Colorado in the recent aftermath of his essay's revelation. In the piece, Churchill also suggested many of those killed in the World Trade Center attacks deserved their fate, and spoke of the "gallant sacrifices" of the "combat teams" that struck America."

Lying Leftist professor Ward Churchill is down but not out. He still has his job if not his former seniority. I think his university should have sacked him for lying in his job application to them but that has not happened so far. His job is presently "under review". More on his rather unbelievable record of lying, terrorist-support and America-hatred here and here and here. He is one very sick puppy.

Results of a Leftist education: "While authoritarian states in much of the world are routinely jailing journalists and others for expressing their views, a substantial proportion of U.S. high school students believes the government should censor the American press and that the free speech protections of the Bill of Rights First Amendment go 'too far.' These are among the findings of a two-year $1 million study of 100,000 high school students, nearly 8,000 teachers, and more than 500 administrators and principals, carried out in more than 500 high schools by the University of Connecticut. The study, entitled, 'The Future of the First Amendment,' was commissioned by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Hodding Carter III, president of the Foundation, said, 'These results are not only disturbing -- they are dangerous. Ignorance about the basics of this free society is a danger to our nation's future.'"

A good example here of the far-Leftist trash that is a REQUIRED course at San Francisco State university.

Free speech only for Leftists: "In the Summers affair, free speech and academic freedom barely came up, except among a few conservative commentators and one or two academics who were already known for their political incorrectness. Instead, Summers was a pinata to be bashed for material rewards and to send the message that some subjects are simply taboo even among serious scholars, no matter what the evidence, in closed-door, off-the-record meetings. Meanwhile, Ward Churchill, whose scholarship is a joke, whose evidence is tendentious at best, and who called the victims of 9/11 the moral equivalent of a man who sent babies to the gas chambers, is a hero of free speech."
