This is simply AWFUL.
A professor at Philadelphia’s Drexel University has a disturbing Christmas message. Associate Professor of Politics and Global Studies George Ciccariello-Maher is wishing for a “white genocide.”
Taking to his Twitter account on Christmas eve, Ciccariello-Maher, tweeted, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.” He later deleted the tweet.
He followed that tweet with, “Sorry, I’m not “alt-left,” just an actual communist.”
The professor who describes himself as a “visiting researcher” at El Instituto de Investigaciones Sociales in Mexico also had praise for the “massacre of whites.”
“To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed.”
Ciccariello-Maher, who describes himself as a communist, joined Drexel University in 2010. Drexel University said in a statement Sunday afternoon: “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. We contacted Ciccariello-Maher today to arrange a meeting to discuss this matter in detail,” the statement continued on to say. Ciccariello-Maher did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
