Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher has officially made his mark on the world, but his legacy may not be one you want being imprinted on your kids. This is the guy who went on Twitter saying that someone who gave up his seat for a service member on a plane made him want to “vomit . . . and yell.”
Now he’s stepped up his game though, even going as far as to call for “white genocide.”
(Side note here; what do you suppose he considers himself to be? Exempt because he’s enlightened?)
He’s doing one of the liberals favorite things and throwing out some sort of unfounded insult right before he makes a flimsy argument, which I guess is to distract from the lack of substance but don’t let it confuse you. He’s claiming that this was all a big joke or experiment in exaggeration or some such nonsense, but please remember that this is someone with a history of proven hate.
In case you wanted some visual proof, the good professors Twitter account is now private, but someone was kind enough to get some screen shots for us:
Maybe that was the part that was a joke?
Initially, the University said that the professor’s comments fell under free speech. but they’re thankfully now taking a little closer look at the matter:
Via The Blaze:
According to a letter obtained by Inside Higher Ed, however, Drexel University is now investigating Ciccariello’s comments. The letter, dated April 3, is from Drexel Provost Brian Blake to Ciccariello, informing him that in consultation with the Faculty Senate “a special committee of inquiry to investigate your conduct and provide findings and recommendations to me concerning your extremely damaging conduct” is underway.
“In light of the serious damage to the university and its reputation that your provocative tweets have caused, it is imperative to determine whether you have violated the university’s Code of Conduct and/or other policies and whether your tweets are a violation of the special obligation that a faculty member has under Drexel’s academic freedom policy,” Blake wrote.
At least if nothing else, they’re worried about their reputation. Or maybe some of them looked in the mirror and realized that they were white, and maybe should try and put a stop to those who encourage killing them.
