this guy is pissed

Ward Churchill is an angry man and, if one can read through/past the accusatory outrage, he’s got a compelling and deeply disturbing argument for why Some People Push Back. He’s about to lose his job, it seems, at the U of Colorado. An open letter of protest is making the rounds, email criticalthinking@pitzer.edu to join signatories such as Henry Giroux, Immanual Wallerstein, and Allen Wood among many others.
I never read Hunter S. Thompson, but the tributes to his “gonzo journalism” valorize his anger. What made his anger acceptible – even laudatory – while Churchill’s is denigrated?
