The Obama administration seems determined to bring academia under the government's heavy hand. You'd think President Obama would leave it alone, because most college professors probably voted for him. But wait. The real aim seems to be to politicize the academy even more.
The disaster that is the Colorado Republican gubernatorial campaign could end up dragging down the rest of the party's ticket. Or it could benefit other GOP candidates by freeing up resources and creating a sense of urgency among activists.
BOULDER, Colo.— University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, who gained international notoriety for comparing the September 11 victims to Nazis, was fired yesterday for academic misconduct.
Former Colorado Republican Sens. Bill Armstrong and Hank Brown write in the Denver Post, "The department's power grab carries with it an implicit invitation for various pressure groups to seek legal mandates requiring colleges and universities to implement their pet theories about curriculum, degree requirements, faculty qualifications, teaching methods, textbooks, evolution, phonics, ROTC, climate change, family policy, abortion, race, sexual orientation, economic theory, etc. ...
"This case was a very clear example, not of mistakes — this was a clear example of an effort to falsify history and fabricate history," said university President Hank Brown, who recommended Mr. Churchill's dismissal in May after three faculty probes.
