The New School gave the nation’s preeminent moonbat academic a rousing reception. He returned the favor by trashing the college’s president, former Senator and Vietnam War veteran Bob Kerrey as a “mass murder and serial killer.” Via the NYSun:
An ethnic studies professor from the University of Colorado, Ward Churchill, received a standing ovation last night from a crowd of more than 200 New School students after blaming the 2001 World Trade Center attacks on America’s support of Israel and its sanctions against Iraq in 1996.
In a two-hour speech at the New School titled “Sterilizing History: The Fabrication of Innocent Americans,” delivered without notes, Mr. Churchill traced what he called a pattern of mass murder as American foreign policy from the time of the country’s inception to the events of September 11, 2001, which he said the country was essentially asking for.
Fabrication? Churchill knows plenty about that.
Mr. Churchill also called the president of the New School, Robert Kerrey, a former senator of Nebraska, a “mass murder and serial killer to boot” for having served in Thanh Phong, Vietnam. Mr. Churchill also served in Vietnam, an act for which he said he has spent the rest of his life apologizing.
Mr. Churchill received cheers from the audience for comparing Mr. Kerrey to the serial killer Charles Manson. “That’s who you’ve got moral equivalency in the president’s chair at this institution,” Mr. Churchill said. “How about a cage rather than a president’s suite?”
No one rushed the stage. No one threw pies. No one pulled fire alarms.
Conservative students don’t do those things. That’s the domain of Ward Churchill’s ilk. Which makes the picture above of Churchill and his “security contingent” all the more laughable.
By the way: There have still been no consequences for Churchill’s academic and research misconduct.
Pirate Ballerina continues to keep watch.
So let me get this straight, Churchill thinks Iraq had to do with 9/11, something we never say yet the left constantly screams that we did, and he is calling the liberal Democrat Robert Kerrey a murderer? Despite the love shown for Ward Churchill by the usual Kos Kid type suspects, somehow I doubt they’ll highlight this story.
Reader JN had the same reaction:
So Churchill says that the sanctions imposed on Iraq in 1996 were a partial cause for 9/11. But I thought Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Can these moonbats keep their talking points straight?
