The only platform Churchill should have should have a noose in front of it

March 5, 2009

From Fox News. See y’all there.

A cage match is looming at the University of Colorado. Students at the Boulder campus have built a 3-foot-by-3-foot “Free Speech Cage” outside a campus building ahead of an appearance by two well-known radical professors:

— Ward Churchill, a former ethnic studies professor at the 29,000-student university who once infamously referred to the 3,000 people killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as “little Eichmanns.”

— William Ayers, an education professor at the University of Illinois who was a co-founder of the Weather Underground, which was responsible for several domestic terror bombings in the U.S. during the Vietnam War. Ayers returned to the national spotlight during the presidential campaign last year because of his ties to Barack Obama.

The pair will be among the speakers at a rally for Churchill, who was fired in 2007 for repeated academic misconduct, including plagiarism, according to school officials, and has sued the school to get his job back. The trial in the case will begin in Denver on Monday.

The university is beefing up security for Thursday’s 7 p.m. rally and has charged the student organizers $3,000 for additional security.

Critics of the event say Churchill and Ayers shouldn’t have the opportunity to address the crowd.

“The only platform [Churchill] should have should have a noose in front of it,” said Peter Gadiel, whose son James was killed in the 9/11 attacks.

“I’m all for free speech, but let’s face it, these people are traitors. Bill Ayers should’ve been put in prison years ago.”

Gadiel, president and co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Secure America, called upon Churchill — whom he called a “plagiarist” and a “whiner” — to stop making public appearances protesting his firing.

“Eventually the American people are going to be pushed too far and when that happens, he’s not going to like it,” Gadiel told
