Oooh! Our favorite professor sans Ph.D./American Indian sans discernible Indian blood Ward “Little Eichmanns” Churchill is now, it seems, getting the dish from one of his ex-wives! On something close to plagiarism, no less!
Pirate Ballerina, the All Ward Churchill All the Time blog, has posted a four-page document that it believes was written by M. Anne Jaimes, a women’s studies professor at San Francisco State University who was once married to the doctorate-less ethnic studies prof at the University of Colorado-Boulder who famously compared the victims of the 9/11 terrorist massacre to the Nazis who butchered Jews. Churchill is now under university investigations after charges of fraudulent scholarship unrelated to the “little Eichmanns” remark began to surface, along with the revelation that Churchill, although claiming to be an oppressed American Indian, does not seem to have any Indian ancestors.
The Jaimes document says:
“…I eventually came to feel my ideas and work were being appropriated for [Churchill’s] own personal agenda, which is to sell his repetitious books, and to become another hollow media icon with hefty honorariums for his speaking engagements.”
“Internet bloggers, artists, ex-wives, a leader of the American Indian Movement, fellow academics – even a woman in Germany with no apparent direct connection to Churchill – have all stepped forward to relay their tales of being bullied, plagiarized or offended by him.
“Some of these complaints, including one from a Canadian professor who believes Churchill plagiarized her work 13 years ago, have been forwarded to a three-person committee investigating his scholarship.
“That review began after the university became aware of Churchill’s Sept. 11, 2001, essay, ‘Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens,’ in which he compared some Sept. 11 victims to a top Nazi, calling them ‘little Eichmanns.’
”I do think people are coming out of the woodwork now,’ said Churchill’s second ex-wife, Marie Anne Jaimes. ‘Maybe this is the chickens coming home to roost.”
