Ward Churchill--scum, and loving it

Mocking Ward Churchill and his minions is fun (and healthy), but Pirate Ballerina reports on a speech Ward gave Friday that reminds one of what sewage the man really is. It was at a forum on conscientious objection in Portland:
For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted [and] in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal.But let me ask you this: Would you render the same support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?

Later a questioner asked:

I think it's important when you're getting into a discussion of violence and appropriate violence and self-defense, of starting to look at what you're trying to build there, what you're trying to create—for example, fragging an officer, which you were talking about before, at the beginning of your talk, the sort of trauma that that inflicts on that officer's family back home is I feel like an important thing to take into account when you try to think about what your action is trying to accomplish in the first place. I really feel like I can articulate [my question] properly, but that's the general direction I'm heading with it.

Churchill: How do you feel about Adolf Eichmann's family?

PB's got the tape. Sooner or later Ward's going to go too f--oh, wait.

Update: Pirate Ballerina also has the hilarious adventures of World Net Daily, which in their story on Churchill's Portland comments also reported as fact a PB satire in which Churchill claims he meant "Little Entenmanns" (the delicious pastries) not "Little Eichmanns" (the infamous Nazi bureaucrat of death) in his infamous essay.
