"The Colorado Board of Regents will decide the fate of professor Ward Churchill, who compared Americans killed on 9/11 to Nazis. Apparently the man is getting threats, and a reporter from The New York Times called me to ask if I felt responsible. I won't be surprised if The Factor audience and I are blamed in some circles for the unfortunate plight of Ward Churchill. I don't revel in the destruction of any person, even one who has said the vile things Churchill has said. I even said the man shouldn't be fired from his job because America is strong enough to tolerate even him. But all that doesn't matter to the left wing media. This isn't about Churchill, this is about power--and many on the left hate the fact that Fox has it. What do Churchill and his sympathizers expect? We're in a war on terror and he supports the enemy. That being said, Churchill should not be harmed in any way--he should instead by shunned."
There's a similar situation at Northeastern University in Boston, where radical professor M. Shahid Alam praised the 9/11 terrorists, writing that they gave their lives so "their people might live free and in dignity." Mideast expert Daniel Pipes has read Alam's writings. "He is a combination of a Marxist and radical Muslim," Pipes told The Factor. "He feels whatever goes wrong in the world as America's fault. He justifies the terrorists, saying they are good people and their cause against us is righteous. And he has venom toward the United States."
