Kool-Aid Alert: Indiana University

Tonight's episode of the O'Reilly Factor featured an associate professor at Indiana University who was denied tenure and essentially fired from the university for refusing to sign a petition defending Ward Churchhill's comments comparing 9/11 victims to Nazis. Bill Bradford, now teaching law at William & Mary in Virginia was confronted by a colleague with the petition because he is an Apache indian and therefore should sympathize with a "fellow indian's" views and opinions. As he said, his colleague expected him to agree with anything another indian said and to him this was "the epitome of racism." Well put Professor Bradford. Nevertheless, after his refusal, the colleague orchestrated a vote that denied him tenure and got him fired from his position at the university.

Well, with all due respect, in the words of Bill O'Reilly, "I believe Kool-Aid is affecting your judgment."

YOu bastard. You are higher in the eco-system than I am. Maybe you should show up to some ASM meetings instead of blogging.
