WTC Victims Nazis?

Because of a broadcast by Bill O'Reilly, (he was crowing about it on last night's broadcast) Ward Churchill, a professor at The University of Colorado has resigned his post as department chairman of Ethnic Studies. Unfortunately, he has at least for now retained his teaching position. The following is an interesting blog thread I discovered about all of this:

Sentiment in Colorado is against Churchill, as the following may attest:

""Rep. Bob Beauprez, R-Colo., said Churchill's hate-filled words are a disgrace to CU and the state of Colorado and has urged him to resign.
"As a proud alumnus of the University of Colorado, and the father of three graduates and one current student of the university, I'm sickened by the recent claims made by CU Professor Ward Churchill in regards to the victims of the 9/11 attacks. The utter and callous disregard shown by Churchill towards the family members of those who lost their lives on 9/11 is beyond comprehension. Churchill's hate-filled words are a disgrace to a great university and the state of Colorado, and bitterly rekindle the agony of 9/11 felt by every American and eternally seared in the hearts of family and friends of the 3,000 innocent victims of that manifestation of evil." ""

The entire article from Denver TV Channel 7 (ABC) is here:

Unfortunately for the dear professor, he's in the wrong part of the country to get away with his ridiculous views forever. Maybe UC Berkeley would be better for him.

I'll be back
