Ward Churchill: A Multi-Faceted Fraud

Ward Chrurchill, now infamous for referring to 9/11 victims as deserving "little Eichmanns", is not only an intellectual fraud who falsely claims to be an American Indian, he's also a visual arts plagiarist.

What an idiot, read how he reacts to reporters with a video camera confronting him. Just like a caught little scammer on the CBS NY news bit "Shame On You!"

"...The work signed by Churchill virtually is a mirror image of Mails' 1972 pen and ink sketch, "The Mystic Warriors of the Plains."

KCNC reporter Raj Chohan took a cameraman to Churchill's office Thursday to confront him with the revelation and received an angry response.
"Get that camera out of my face," Churchill said.

Chohan followed the professor down the hallway to his office, trying to show him Mails' piece and asking to explain why it "looks like you ripped it off."

That prompted Churchill to take a swing at Chohan.

The reporter said: "Sir, that's assault, you can't do that. Can I ask you about this? It looks like you copied it."

Churchill: "I was just grabbed by the arm. And that [camera] gets out of my face."

Chohan: "Sir, we're allowed to take these pictures, this is a public space."

Churchill: "You're not allowed to grab me by the arm."

Chohan: "He didn't touch you sir, we've got it all on tape. Sir, this is called Winter Attack. It's a serigraph by you. It looks like it was copied from Thomas Mails artwork. Can we talk to you about that please?"

Churchill came out of his office several minutes later and agreed to talk, acknowledging his artwork is based on the Mails piece...."

What an evil, scheming, thieving, lying, talentless, terrorist-loving, America-hating dirtball this Ward Churchill monkey is. His hair sucks too!
