Most Ridiculous Item of the Day!

Maoist MIM Unmasks Ward Churchill's Vigilante-Cooties!
I've received...unqualified support from hard-line Maoists....[T]he Maoist International Movement (MIM) have used their weekly papers to advance some of the best analysis of my case and its implications yet published--Ward Churchill

The Maoist MIM, which defends the disgraced Plagiarist of Ethic Studies, Ward Churchill, now warns in a March 17, 2007 post that witch-hunting vigilantes [video] are exposing Wardo.

Previously, MIM reported breathlessly that Federal agents were on Wardo's tail. For a revolutionary like Ward Churchill, I suppose that having the Feds on one's tail has a certain radical chic [video features sunglasses and a rubber chicken] that being pursued by grubby, unofficial, no-name, "vigilante" activists lacks.

So, wouldn't it be just awful (for Wardo) if the people who are exposing Wardo running amock [video] turned out not to be kewl "Men in Black," but decidedly un-kkkewl polyester proletarians! [video]

MIM cautions that these Dennis the Menace vigilantes fail to appreciate that they should back-off because they are tripping up the FBI [video].

MIM can always come up with some glib rationalization for why Ward Churchill should be the only one who is entitled to free speech. Anyone who pipes up is characterized by epithets like "CIA Asswipe," "unthinking citizen," or "vigilante."

Although Wardo is a government employee who gets his paycheck from the State of Colorado, MIM explains why only Wardo, and not "whitey-fascist-vigilante," is qualified investigate government employees:

[S]elf-styled FBI vigilantes...only degrade the accountability of capitalist government...This sort of spy will be unaware of existing federal infiltration efforts thanks to a lack of formal integration into fed networks. [Full text]

While we were sleeping, the Party line has flip-flopped, and MIM--- who formerly defended Churchill from "CIA Asswipe" ---now defends Churchill from "whitey-fascist-vigilante."

"Whitey-fascist-vigilante" fails to appreciate the Maoist perspective on the thuggish, violent, dishonest, "scholar" Ward Churchill. Only MIM is smart enough to appreciate Wardo.

The star-struck (or possibly narcissistic) MIM gushes:

Recently, we have a problem where an investigator of undercover federal abuses named Ward Churchill is under attack. Ward Churchill co-authored a book titled Agents of Repression on the details of FBI abuses. This sort of work is most challenging and there is no government agency or university that specializes in training the citizens how to do the kind of work Ward Churchill does. The people who do Ward Churchill's work do not receive mass recognition, because their work is too creative, not possible with cookie-cutters....

Unthinking citizens do not realize how difficult it is what Churchill puts together, how path-breaking...

Readers might think that MIM's remarkable rationalizations are some kind of satire to make fun of Wardo, but that would be wrong, because the Great White Wardo has actually thanked the MIM for its "unqualified support" and for "some of the best analysis of my case and its implications yet published." [Dissident Voice October 5, 2005]

Ward Churchill told Dissident Voice:

I've received...unqualified support from hard-line Maoists....[T]he Maoist International Movement (MIM) have used their weekly papers to advance some of the best analysis of my case and its implications yet published. MIM has been especially consistent in putting its cadres on the street to do political education concerning my case, gathering signatures on petitions supporting me, and the like. This has led to some interesting results, to say the least.

One of the high points of my spring was when, unbeknownst to me at the time, a bunch of MIMsters cornered Rocky Mountain News reporter Charlie Brennan on the sidewalk outside the Women's Building in San Francisco -- he was there because I was speaking inside -- and told him he wasn't taking another step until he signed their petition supporting me. Man, I'd love to have seen the look on his face! They eventually cut him loose without signing, but let's just say he's stopped stalking me around the country -- he'd earlier shown up at a talk I gave at the University of Wisconsin's Whitewater campus, and a few other unlikely locations -- and I think the MIM people can take credit for his absence.

Sooooo...Thanks, comrades."
