The Ward Police

If you can trust the New York Sun account, Ward Churchill's speech at the New School yesterday was an embarrassment to himself and those cheering him. But the freedom to be a fool is an important freedom. Unfortunately, some students disagree. Members of the ironically-named "Free Thought Coalition" passed out fliers "objecting to Mr. Churchill's appearance on campus." It's easy to object to Ward Churchill's views. But it's altogether different to object to him being allowed to appear and express his views.
