How Low Can He Go? Ward Churchill Slanders 9/11 Victims Again

America's Latest Quisling Unrepentant
BOULDER, Colo. (Reuters) - A University of Colorado professor under fire for comparing World Trade Center victims to a Nazi war criminal on Tuesday refused to apologize for his remarks.

"I am not backing off an inch," said Ward Churchill, drawing an ovation from a standing-room-only crowd of about 1,200 students and backers gathered in a ballroom. "I owe no one an apology."

"Nowhere in there did I justify the killing of innocent people," he told Reuters. "Those words are not there."
But you did justify the killing of innocent people, Ward; not one of the 9/11 victims has been charged, much less convicted, of any crime connected with the attack. Therefore, you have slandered them in your public appearances, and libeled them in your book and essays. The Dread Pundit Bluto fervently hopes that the families of the victims will sue you for this. Fair comment is not a defense; the victims were not public figures. Truth is quite obviously not a defense.

Oddly, this report makes no mention of Churchill's outing by the American Indian Movement for falsely claiming Indian ancestry. This alone should be reason enough for the University to fire him.

The Dread Pundit Bluto still believes that Churchill continues to make these outrageous comments simply to promote his book, which I will not name or link.
