Ward Churchill Is Not Alone
Ladies and lizards (and lizards who are ladies), I’d like to introduce you to associate professor at North Carolina Wesleyan, Jane T. Christensen. (Hat tip: Drew.)
Here is her faculty web page, proudly reeking of antisemitism and conspiracy mania.
Here is the course she’s teaching for the Spring 2005 semester: (POL 495) 911 The Road to Tyranny.
The events of September 11, 2001, indisputably changed the course of American politics and history. This course is offered so students may examine various events and policies leading to 911. In particular, this course will focus largely on the specific destruction in lower Manhattan and the Pentagon. We will examine the official story and analyze it critically. We will consider alternative explanations of what occurrred as well. 911 was a catalyst for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as the attack on civil liberties in the United States. We will examine each of these with a critical eye. The goal of this course is to arrive at a solid understanding of how 911 has shaped our political future and to promote critical analysis by students of this catastrophic event and its aftermath.
This course is outside the scope of traditional “political science” in many ways. First it is “unscientific” in that it relies much on eyewitness accounts and speculation. Secondly, there is not yet a solid literature on the September 11 “attacks” or on the war on terrorism. This literature is emerging, particularly on the latter. Thirdly, this course will rely somewhat extensively on alternative news media accounts and a variety of films and videos in lieu of literature.
Read the whole page. You’re not going to believe her list of recommended web sites and reading sources for this course; it’s a who’s who of moonbats, antisemites, and conspiracy lunatics.
And here is her final exam for (POL302) The American Presidency.
Instructions: Write essays on each of the following 4 questions (25 points each). Your answers should be at least one page each, no less. You will be graded on your writing and organizational skills as well as your ability to bring the readings into your discussion. This test is designed to see how well you have thought about the materials we have read and discussed and your ability to discuss these materials after you have reflected on them.
1. How has the war on terrorism contributed to the powers of the Bush presidency? (Discuss at least 4 ways).
2. Discuss the sweeping attack on democratic rights under the Bush administration and what this means for the future of democratic government in America.
3. Whose interests are served by the foreign and domestic policies of the Bush administration?
4. Describe and discuss the role of the Bush advisors. Who are they? What is their agenda? And how is it being carried out?
