In support of free speech

I would encouage anyone who is concerned about free speech to take some time and contact both Bill Owens, Colorado governor, as well as the President of Hamilton College, Joan Hinde Stewart.

Churchill is being targeted by proponents of censorship on the right, led by fascist propagandists, such as Bill O'Reilly. Both Owens, by calling for Churchill's resignation as a tenured professor at the University of Colorado, and Hinde Stewart by cancellling a speaking engagement by Churchill at Hamilton College, are caving in to craven attempts at silencing an articulate and powerful voice of dissent from the public square.

Take some time to read The Empire Strikes Back, which will give you the background on the issue. Churchill is an unapologetic voice in opposition to the American Empire. Not surprisingly, in speaking to power, attempts are being made to silence his voice.
