Ward Churchill - Good. Professor of the Year - Bad
Ward Churchill should not be fired for being a jerk, nor for being a left-wing moonbat. Most reasonable people, I think, would agree. His plagiarism is another story, but I'll let others rant about that.
With that said, why should Dr. Phil Mitchell, professor of the year in 1998, at the University of Colorado, the VERY SAME UNIVERSITY, be fired for his conservative positions?
That is why Churchill matters - he represents what is the norm on college campuses, and the left hates anything that is not itself. Therefore, Churchill gets a free pass, and Mitchell gets canned.
Not good. Not good at all.
Hat tip: Ace.
