Prof Who Called For “White Genocide” Learns a Hard Lesson About Racism

A controversial professor at Philadelphia’s Drexel University is calling it quits just over a year after he caused a major uproar with a racist tweet that all that he wanted for Christmas was “white genocide.”

George Ciccariello-Maher who teaches history and politics, has announced his resignation and is citing “harassment” including death threats for his decision.

Despite the controversy and disgrace that he brought to Drexel, school officials didn’t have the guts to fire him and instead issued a wishy-washy reprimand.

Undeterred by Drexel’s “reprimand”, Ciccariello-Maher continued to make inflammatory and vile political statements including blaming the October Las Vegas massacre at a country music festival that killed nearly 60 and injured hundreds more on the “white supremacist patriarchy” and what he referred to as “Trumpism” – whatever that is.

While the motives of the Vegas shooter remain mysteriously unknown to this day, what is known is that Ciccariello-Maher is a deranged leftist who has no business in a classroom where he indoctrinates young minds into his twisted cultural Marxist worldview.

Now he’s out on December 31st.

Via CNN “Drexel professor resigns amid threats over controversial tweets”:

A Drexel University professor who received death threats after posting several controversial tweets said Thursday he is resigning because the year-long harassment has made his situation “unsustainable.”

George Ciccariello-Maher, a professor of politics and global studies, had been teaching his class remotely via video conference after being put on administrative leave, a move that Drexel said was for his own safety.

The professor said his resignation is effective December 31.

“This is not a decision I take lightly; however, after nearly a year of harassment by right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and Internet mobs, after death threats and threats of violence directed against me and my family, my situation has become unsustainable,” Ciccariello-Maher wrote on his Facebook account. “Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking, and organizing.”

Additional details and comments from the nutty professor are provided by Inside Higher Ed:

Ciccariello-Maher went on to say that his situation illustrated the limits of tenure protections (he has tenure). “[T]enure is a crucial buffer against those who would use money to dictate the content of higher education. But in a neoliberal academy, such protections are far from absolute,” he wrote. “We are all a single outrage campaign away from having no rights at all, as my case and many others make clear. The difference between tenure-track and the untenured adjunct majority — which has far more to do with luck than merit — is a difference in degree not in kind.”

He added: “In the past year, the forces of resurgent white supremacy have tasted blood and are howling for more. Given the pressure they will continue to apply, university communities must form a common front against the most reprehensible forces in society and refuse to bow to their pressure, intimidation, and threats. Only then will universities stand any chance of survival.”

Considering his ideology, it’s hard to see Ciccariello-Maher being out of work for an extended period. He may even be able to parlay his notoriety into a spot as a regular guest on MSNBC since they seem to be made for each other.
