— Ace AoSHQ contributor Dianna has penned an essay about Churchill's dishonest studies in non-history over at PirateBallerina. I'm particularly happy to hear he's a serial plagiarist:
.... LaVelle demonstrates for the reader the number of scholars whose work is distorted in Churchills work Patricia Nelson Limerick, Russell Thornton, Janet A. McDonnell and George M. Frederickson, to name only a few and lays out for side by side comparison a passage written by Churchill and one by Rebecca L. Robbins..... This is clear evidence of plagiarism, particularly since the passage in Churchill is not in quotes, and there is, furthermore, no citation of Robbins.
Go get 'im, Dianna!
Top Ten Quotations from Ward Churchill's "Original Writings"
10. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of tyrants and patriots." -- Ward Churchill p. 13 of From a Native Son
9. "Are we not men? We are Devo." -- Ward Churchill, p. 44 of Since Predator Came
8. "" It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose!" -- Ward Churchill, p. 31, Indians Are Us?
7. "That bitch set me up!" -- Ward Churchill, footnote 23 of Sketches of My Plainsmen Ancestors
6. "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for these meddling kids." -- Ward Churchill, citing Columbus' "secret diary," p. 122, Deconstructing the Columbus Myth
5. "And then we're going to Idaho! And then we're going to Wisconsin! And then we're going to Washington! Yeeeaaaaaiiiigghhh! -- Ward Churchill, p. 44, Struggle for the Land

3. "I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride, and I'm wanted (want-ed...!) dead or alive..." -- Ward Churchill, p. 88, The European Exterminators
2. "Jules, y'know, honey... this isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge." -- Ward Churchill, p. 72 of A Little Matter of Genocide
...and the Number One Quotation From Ward Chuchill's "Original Writings"...
1. "And when I move, I slice like a fuckin' hammer. That's just. The Fuckin'. Way. It is." -- Ward Churchill, introduction to Noam Chomsky's Corporate Media Deceptions: Don't Make a Fuckin' Maniac Out of Me

With his lack of intellectual insight, I wonder how he ever got through his first year of school.
Oh, yeah. He didn't. He just says he did. Maybe.

I must remind you of what I wrote in "Sole on Ice: Preserving Your Catch When the Freezer Breaks"
We shall fight in France and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old.
By the way, have you heard of the great new free spyware detector?

No, what ward said was ""You don't understand! I could've had class. I could've been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am. Let's face it......It was you, Charley." Ward Churchill, The Iceman Cometh to Rapeth and Pillageth (1985)
