Bill O'Reilly Comments
I was watching the local news last night and they showed a segment of Bill O'Reilly Show where he was commenting on Ward Churchill's visit to the University of Hawaii. Bill O'Reilly said Churchill got three standing ovations and he doesn't understand why we are wasting our money to invite him. He also said "That institution will never command my respect again". I would like to say that the invitation to Ward Churchill was funded by some UH Manoa Professors and students and that it was not a decision by the university as a whole. Even the President of the UH Manoa said he was not happy about Ward Churchill coming to UH Manoa but he supports free speech. I don't believe in what Churchill has to say about 9/11 victims and I certainly don't think we should ever invite a person like him again on our campus.
