CU Professor Sparks Protests
Following the Sept. 11 attacks, Churchill wrote an essay that hailed the "gallant sacrifices" of the "combat teams" that struck America. He said the World Trade Center victims deserved to die because they were a willing part of "the mighty engine of profit." "True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break," Churchill wrote. Churchill went on to describe the victims as "little Eichmanns," a reference to Adolf Eichmann, who organized Adolf Hitler's plan to exterminate Jews during World War II.Families of the 9/11 victims have embarked on an e-mail and letter writing campaign to the college to cancel Churchill's speech. No dice.
....the school is committed to the free exchange of ideas and diverse opinions and believes it is an appropriate part of the liberal arts education process.CU officials also say Churchill has the right to speak his views. Yesterday, though, two Colorado congressmen asked Churchill to apologize.
