The Ward Churchill Trial

A new blog is being published in support of Native American scholar and political activist Ward Churchill:

A little over a year ago, Ward Churchill was fired from his position as a professor at the University of Colorado on trumped up charges of academic misconduct. His firing was the result of one of the filthiest media smear campaigns in modern history, crushing pressure brought to bear by a number of hack politicians including Governor Bill Owens, and the overwhelming cowardice of CU’s administration.

For the first time, an impartial body is set to review the facts of the case. On March 9th, Ward Churchill’s lawsuit against the University of Colorado begins. For detailed information about the pig circus which led to Ward Churchill’s firing, see here.

This blog will track media attention around the case, and provide timely updates, including what you can do to help. If you’d like to attend the trial, or need help organizing or planning events around the trial, please email me at [email protected].

Did you know AIM people killed JonBenet Ramsey? I have had that theory for years. They did it to bring down the government in Boulder and to discredit the FBI and police.

True story.

Speaking of Tall Tales & True, another new (Crikey-sponsored) blog is called Poison Pen: “Exposing intellectual dishonesty in the mainstream media, across the political spectrum. We’re looking at you, Bolt, Blair, Marr, Akerman, Albrechtsen, and whoever else wishes to stray onto the path of fatuous opinion.”

Stay or go, I predict that they’ll never run out of material.

    Presenter (Ben): Good evening.


    Presenter: I have with me tonight Anne Snapple. Mrs Anne Snapple.

    Miss Snapple: Miss.


    Presenter: You have a new theory about the brontosaurus.

    Miss Snapple: Can I just say here Ben for one moment that I have a new theory about the brontosaurus?

    Presenter: Er… exactly. (he gestures but she does not say anything) What is it?

    Miss Snapple: Where? (looks round)

    Presenter: No, no. Your new theory.

    Miss Snapple: Oh, what is my theory?

    Presenter: Yes.

    Miss Snapple: Oh what is my theory that it is. Well Ben you may well ask me what is my theory.

    Presenter: I am asking.

    Miss Snapple: Good for you. My word yes. Well Ben, what is it that it is – this theory of mine. Well, this is what it is – my theory that I have, that is to say, which is mine, is mine.

    Presenter: (beginning to show signs of exasperation) Yes, I know it’s yours, what is it?

    Miss Snapple: Where? Oh, what is my theory? This is it. (clears throat at some length) My theory that belongs to me is as follows. (clears throat at great length) This is how it goes. The next thing I”m going to say is my theory. Ready?

    Presenter: Yes!

    Miss Snapple: My theory by A. Snapple. Brackets Miss, brackets. This theory goes as follows and begins now. All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much thicker in the middle and then thin again at the far end. That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, and what it is too.

    Presenter: That’s it, is it?

    Miss Snapple: Spot on, Ben.

    Presenter: Well, er, this theory of yours appears to have hit the nail on the head.

    Miss Snapple: And it’s mine…
