October 20: One year ago, Ward Churchill spoke at Chicago's DePaul University

On September 15, 2004, longtime DePaul adjunct professor Thomas Klocek got involved in an out of classroom discussion with some Muslim DePaul students. Klocek defended Israel from some ludricous accusations from those "scholars." Klocek's words actions that day got him fired.

Meanwhile, the angry Left views plagiarist, fabricator, and America-hater Ward Churchill as a champion of free speech. So in the spirit that smothers modern academia, the one-day-to-be-fired Ward Churchill spoke for a reputed $5,000 fee at DePaul last October 20 inside the DePaul Student Activities Center.

As this FIRE report explains, the October 20 Ward Churchill appearance was another embarrasment for the Chicago Catholic school. FIRE, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, was forced to open a second case against the school because of DePaul University attempts to censor some students who wanted to protest Ward Churchill's appearance.

Enough about Ward Churchill. Let get Thomas Klocek his job back at DePaul. Sign here.
