Ward Churchill is a nitwit

Something most people know but he seems to keep on proving it. In his latest foray into idiocy, he, at a forum in Portland Oregon said,

"For those of you who do, as a matter of principle, oppose war in any form, the idea of supporting a conscientious objector who's already been inducted in his combat service in Iraq might have a certain appeal. But let me ask you this: Would you render the same level of support to someone who hadn't conscientiously objected, but rather instead rolled a grenade under their line officer in order to neutralize the combat capacity of their unit?"

For more information including a transcript of his entire speech go here.

I am a first amendment advocate without exception. Justice Holmes said that yelling fire in a theater was beyond the protection. Churchill is advocating murder. While it is true that most military personnel would probably rather frag Churchill there are always a few.
