Ward Kindermord's Modest Proposal for Making American Children Benefit Our Planet!

Picture credit and interesting film site.
Another interesting film site

"Every yuppie born counts as much as another seventy Chinese...Lay that one on the next soccer mom who approaches you with a baby stroller and an outraged look, demanding that you to put your cigarette out, eh? It is plainly absurd for any American to complain about smoking when you consider the context of the damage done by overall U.S. consumption patterns. "Tell ’em you’ll put the butt out when they snuff the kid and not a moment before. Better yet, tell ’em they should snuff themselves, as well as the kid, and do the planet a real favor. Just 'kidding' (heh-heh)."---Ward Churchill

Professor Churchill doesn't only advocate interfamiliar violence, he let slip that he practices what he preaches in his own family. He researched, wrote, and footnoted an essay in which he admitted that he assaulted his young Indian wife, Leah. He claimed that Leah had been turned into an alcoholic by the repressive white culture, but the copious footnotes are nothing but a smokescreen; Churchill is the only white man who hurt Leah:

"I broke and slammed [my wife] back against our bedroom wall, telling her that if she kept it up, she’d be apt to land in a hospital."---Ward Churchill

[More "scholarly" thoughts about how to handle young wives here.]
