At the end of 2017, George Ciccariello-Maher stepped down from his position as politics professor at Drexel University. As his reason, Ciccariello-Maher cited a combination of "death threats" and "nearly a year of harassment by right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs."
The professor was apparently confounded by the hostile response to his December 2016 tweet:
"All I want for Christmas is white genocide."
Why would anyone have a problem with that?
As for life after his collegiate employment as an anti-white, homicide-friendly demagogue, Ciccariello-Maher wrote at the time that he would continue "to support and work with [students] informally, whether in reading groups, in the streets, or both," fighting against “Right and White Supremacists” via the “establishment of the Campus Antifascist Network.”
"Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking, and organizing," he continued on Facebook.
Fortunately for the disgraced professor, the university world loves a good Caucasian extermination: he's been hired as a visiting scholar by New York University's Hemispheric Institute. According to the official website, the Institute is "a collaborative, multilingual, and interdisciplinary consortium of institutions, artists, scholars, and activists throughout the Americas. Working at the intersection of scholarship, artistic expression, and politics, the organization explores embodied practice—performance—as a vehicle for the creation of new meaning and the transmission of cultural values, memory, and identity."
Cultural values, evidently, such as white genocide.
Per a statement by Drexel, the school "wishes Professor Ciccariello-Maher well in his future pursuits." That seems unwise, considering his taste for racist mass murder.
When asked by Campus Reform for further comment on his resignation from Drexel, he gave quite the scholarly response: "F*** y'all."
