George Ciccariello-Maher is an associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He describes himself as ‘radical political theorist’ and late Christmas Eve he tweeted that genocide of white people is all he wants for Christmas. Funny thing, he is white himself.
Later, he decided that this tweet wasn’t self-explanatory enough
Earlier, he claimed the following:
According to the Daily Caller he has a history of inciting outrage on Twitter after tweeting incendiary comments about white people, even once tweeting in June 2015 that the white race should be “abolished.” And his employer is not exactly thrilled over his Christmas Eve comments: "While the University recognizes the right of its faculty to freely express their thoughts and opinions in public debate, Professor Ciccariello-Maher’s comments are utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University."
The University is taking this situation very seriously.
The professor has written three books, all on communism and Venezuela — which has failed horribly in the South American country as its citizens continue to starve to death — and he writes and contributes to liberal websites like Salon, the Huffington Post, Alternet and others.
Why Ciccariello-Maher teaches at a private university that is costly to attend as an “outright communist” is unknown.
Ciccariello-Maher has also since made his public, verified Twitter account private.
What a weird world we live in!
