Kenis (aka Ward Churchill) - Liar liar pants on fire

Is there anyone who believes that "Professor" Ward Churchill even deserves half of the press that he's gotten? The First Amendment is supposed to guarantee his right to free speech, but does the taxpayer have to pay his salary? Ann Coulter provides an always amusing analysis here but check out Churchill's commentary at "Socialism and Democracy Online". His observations, (I'll be honest, I lost interest about two-thirds of the way in and didn't finish his piece) are colored by this claim in the second paragraph:

(my point of view is influenced) with the fact that I am myself of Muscogee and Creek descent on my father’s side, Cherokee on my mother’s, and am an enrolled member of the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians. I’m also married to an Ojibwe woman of the Lynx clan, from the Onegaming Reserve in Northwestern Ontario. The truth is, although I’m best known by my colonial name, Ward Churchill, the name I prefer is Kenis, an Ojibwe name bestowed by my wife’s uncle.

Yeah, that's the ticket. Good job Kenis. Of course if you ask any American Indian tribe out there none of them recognize him as belonging to them. Worldnetdaily inquires about Kenis's Native American roots here.

Hey Roguenation, you and your ilk are nothing but a bunch of racist dittoheads. Why don't stop regurgitating what you read and come up with something original.

Wow, I think Ward stopped by to read your blog. Let's see... what does Kenis rhyme with?

Hey, I don't need to come up with anything original. I have the facts on my side. Why am I a racist? I don't hate people because they belong to a particular race. I hate all people equally.
