    Churchill is a Churchillist.  Whatever gets him in the paper or on tv is a-okay with him.

      And not some genuine threat to democracy, like Bill-O is.

        Bill O'Reilly has a huge megaphone.
        Ward Churchill has only his moderately effective skill at self-promotion.

        you believe that he corrupted people's minds.  I was a student there, and a lot of kids at that school will believe whatever is handed to them if they think it's the newest, daring liberal position.  

        Most of the (queer) kids in my Queer Theory class embraced the concept of social constructionism in opposition to essentialism (you are made gay vs. born gay) because that is the new militant position taken by gay theorists.  

        That being said, the only professor I ever had who blatantly promoted any sort of politics in his classroom was a conservative  (A fun conservative who backed his anti-abortion views with action, adopting something like seven children).  

        I have no doubt that eventually people think for themselves and realize that they're being fed extremist nonsense, but it still takes a while to shake that stuff off.
