Inside Higher Education Covers AAUP "Free Speech" Posterboy Ward Churchill!

Picture credit

I have been posting my opinions about the tenured Plagiarist of Ethnic Studies Ward Churchill, the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), and AAUP President Cary Nelson over at a publication called Inside Higher Education.

President Cary Nelson claims in the opening of this podcast that academic freedom is "massively imperiled" and that "none of the stakeholders in higher education understand what academic freedom is---none."

Of course, being a brainy fellow, President Nelson appears to think that he is the exception that proves the rule. But really, Professor Nelson is the one who doesn't get it.

The AAUP website boasts loudly that its core mission is "telling the truth in difficult times" and "protecting academic freedom," but it looks to me like the AAUP is really just protecting Ward Churchill, a totalitarian thug who spits on the professed AAUP values...Towanda!
