TONIGHT ON THE TERRORDOME: My conversation with Ward ChurchillAccomplished and brilliant. Nuanced, historically detailed and requiring sober reflection. The horror. Maybe I'll rig a speaker on the porch, see if Ward can't scare away all the extortionate little freaks who come around demanding candy tonight.
Ward Churchill is often described as being controversial and confrontational. He’s also often described as accomplished and brilliant. Although his commentaries and speeches are nuanced, historically detailed and requiring sober reflection, audiences not ready for them often react with emotion and even invective.
Update: Adam Sandler demands candy.
Update II: Minister Faust gets a lot wrong:
Churchill . . . was an associate professor of American Indian Studies and Communications at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Until he was recently forced to resign from the position, he had served as Associate Director of the Center for Studies of Ethnicity and Race in America at U.C. Boulder. Churchill resigned following a media firestorm led by right-wing stormtroopers such as Bill O’Reilly of the FOX network, after a post-911 essay Churchill had penned returned to light.
