Ward Churchill statement regarding his firing is online

Take it from me, this is legit. No one knows Ward Churchill than those Ward Churchill supporters (and Johnny Cash fans) Try Works.

Here are the first few paragraphs of Ward's very long rebuttal statement to the university:

It was quite predictable that Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano would recommend that I be fired from my tenured professorship at the University of Colorado/Boulder. After all, he was effectively ordered to find some "legally-defensible" basis for doing so by Colorado Governor Bill Owens.

In pursuit of this purely political objective, the interim chancellor has at this point expended more than a year and upwards of $250,000 in taxpayer monies.

For all that, he has failed.

Churchill goes on to compare the proceedings against him as a "repitition of the Scopes Monkey Trial."

In short, Ward won't be slipping out of Boulder quietly.

Hat tip for life to Pirate Ballerina.
