University of Hawaii to offer a warm aloha to terrorist sympathizer

Militant anti-American Ward Churchill may be coming to my neck of the woods soon. Hawaii Reporter, who's founder and president Malia Zimmerman has proven to be quite the thorn in the side of Hawaii's Democratic party thugocracy, obtained a memo circulating among University of Hawaii (UH) professor's trying to raise money for Comrad Churchill's trip.

University of Hawaii professors have organized an aggressive fundraising effort to bring Ward Churchill, a highly controversial professor based at the University of Colorado and activist in the American Indian Movement, to lecture at the University’s Manoa Campus, according to an internal memo obtained by Hawaii Reporter.

Churchill, who prides himself on publishing inflammatory anti-American propaganda, came into the national spotlight in recent weeks for his declaration in a recently published essay that the victims killed and injured in the 9-11 attack on America were not "innocent."

Mr. Churchill, who also claims that American capitalism, not Saddam, was to blame for the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children, represents the neo-Marxism that infests the campus of UH. He will be in good company.

When Churchill isn't cheerleading for Islamo-fascism, he meets with murderous dictators in the Middle East, and moonlights as an academic hack and phony American Indian. Ann Coulter did some digging, and discovered the following:

In 1983, Churchill met with Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi and later felt it necessary to announce that his group, the American Indian Movement, "has not requested arms from the Libyan government." [...]

In light of the fact that Churchill's entire persona, political activism, curriculum vitae, writings and university positions are based on his claim that he's an Indian, it's rather churlish of him to complain when people ask if he really is one. But whenever he is questioned about his heritage, Churchill rails that inquiries into his ancestry are "absolutely indefensible."

Churchill has gone from claiming he is one-eighth Indian "on a good day" to claiming he is "three-sixteenths Cherokee," to claiming he is one-sixty-fourth Cherokee through a Revolutionary War era ancestor named Joshua Tyner. (At least he's not posing as a phony Indian math professor.) [...]

In addition to calling Americans murdered on 9/11 "little Eichmanns," Churchill has said: "The U.S. Army gave blankets infected with smallpox to the Indians specifically intending to spread the disease."

Not only are the diseased-blanket stories cited by Churchill denied by his alleged sources, but the very idea is contradicted by the facts of scientific discovery. The settlers didn't understand the mechanism of how disease was transmitted. Until Louis Pasteur's experiments in the second half of the 19th century, the idea that disease could be caused by living organisms was as scientifically accepted as crystal reading is today. Even after Pasteur, many scientists continued to believe disease was spontaneously generated from within. Churchill is imbuing the settlers with knowledge that in most cases wouldn't be accepted for another hundred years.

Like I said, this guy will fit in perfectly at the University of Hawaii.
