WARD CHURCHILL KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT UNIVERSITY OF OREGON SYMPOSIUM CANCELLED
A number of colleges/universities have cancelled speaking engagements previously scheduled for Ward Churchill, the now notorious professor who got his job at the University by submitting a resume and application to the University of Colorado falsely representing himself as a minority ethnic group, stating that he is a Native American Cherokee Indian when he is, in fact not. His career and body of written work are built upon this falsehood and he refuses to discuss it or produce any proof that he is a Native American. The University of Colorado is taking a 30 day period to examine his work and the legal implications of firing the now-tenured radical professor.
Excerpts from the following article evidence the fact that Churchill and his colleague Natsu Taylor Saito have been cancelled by another university where he was scheduled apparently to speak "off-topic" and "not part of the original intent."

"The University of Oregon has canceled plans to have Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor under fire for calling victims of the 9-11 attacks "Little Eichmans," speak at an on-campus symposium. Churchill was scheduled to give the keynote lunch address at a symposium titled "Homeland 'In'Security: Race, Immigration and Labor in Post-9/11 North America," a joint presentation of the University of Oregon's Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics and the Center on Diversity and Community, the school's Oregon Daily Emerald reported.
....the national furor over Churchill stems from an essay he wrote titled "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens," written shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks. In it, he describes the thousands of American victims who died in the World Trade Center inferno as "little Eichmanns" (a reference to notorious Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann) who were perpetuating America's "mighty engine of profit." They were destroyed, he added, thanks to the "gallant sacrifices" of "combat teams" that successfully targeted the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon.... Churchill... has steadfastly refused to apologize for his comments...." entire article
