Truth to Power

Jury finds for Ward Churchill

In fact, it wasn’t publication of Churchill’s 9-11 tract that got him in trouble. It was the workings of the right–most notably former ’60s fringe leftist-turned-right-wing agitator David Horowitz–who began dogging Churchill in 2005. Horowitz, whose own scholarship is a shameless Swiss cheese of errors and plagiarism, has been conducting a well-funded (courtesy of such right-wing outfits as the Olin Foundation) one-man campaign of smearing and “outing” academic leftists on American campuses, made Churchill a poster child for his absurd charge that universities have become dens of leftism.

It is now up to Judge Naves to decide whether to order the University of Colorado to reinstate Prof. Churchill.

He should do so, though it remains to be seen whether he will have the same political courage shown by those 12 jurors. If he does, he will order reinstatement.</em>
