Are You Ready To Rumble?!

Personally I think it is a stretch for Ward Churchill to even be considered an academic in the first place. He is a fake Indian, an academic fraud, and managed to turn a master's degree in communication from an experimental university into a full professorship in ethnic studies. It should be entertaining at least. Hopefully it will be broadcast on the web. H/T Michelle Malkin.

Author David Horowitz will debate the University of Colorado professor he listed among America's worst academics.

Horowitz and ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill said Tuesday in separate interviews that the idea came from Churchill.

Horowitz has called Churchill's views "absurd on their face" and listed him in a book on professors who he says allow their opinions to dominate their lectures.

But Horowitz also said in a talk at CU that Churchill should not be fired for expressing controversial views.

The debate is scheduled for April 6 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Horowitz said. It will be sponsored by Horowitz's Center for the Study of Popular Culture and Young America's Foundation, which bills itself as a conservative group.
