    Professor tweets ‘all I want for Christmas is white genocide’

    Professor tweets ‘all I want for Christmas is white genocide’


    The Caucasians among the tender young minds exposed to Professor George Ciccariello-Maher at Drexel University are on notice that their teacher wants them exterminated because of their race. Not exactly a welcoming atmosphere. I wonder if any of them might be “triggered” by this tweet the good professor offered in the spirit of the holiday?

    All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide — George Ciccariello (@ciccmaher) December 25, 2016

    The professor describes his academic specialty as:

    My research and teaching center on what could be called the “decolonial turn” in political thought, the moment of epistemic and political interrogation that emerges in response to colonialism and global social inequality. My first book, We Created Chávez, is a theoretically rich “people’s history” of contemporary Venezuela which locates the origins of current political dynamics in the long-term history of Venezuelan social movements, demonstrating that Hugo Chávez was not the cause, but rather the result, of a broader and more fundamental transformative process.

    My second book project, Decolonizing Dialectics, seeks to contribute in a theoretical register to what my first book analyzes practically. In it, I plumb the history of political thought for a radicalized understanding of the relationship between conflict and group identity (in the work of Georges Sorel), further charting the decolonization of this very conception and its projection onto a global framework (in the work of Frantz Fanon and Enrique Dussel).
    hmm dude looks white .... he should start by 'offing' himself


    RESPONSE TO PROFESSOR GEORGE CICCARIELLO-MAHER’S TWEET

    Drexel became aware today of Associate Professor George Ciccariello-Maher's inflammatory tweet, which was posted on his personal Twitter account on Dec. 24, 2016. 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. - See more at: http://drexel.edu/now/archive/2016/D....3CWt6M3z.dpuf





    well if he likes So. Am. revolutionaries so much, perhaps he will be given a chance to live Venezuela now
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    That swirl-ing motion the associate professor hears in the background, is his being a tenured professor going down the toilet.

    Why are so many college professors mentally ill? Is it because they work in an environment that promotes alternate thinking, so their brains run amok? Or do crazy people gravitate toward academia because they aren't attractive or talented enough to be performers?

    Drexel's response isn't good enough. Had a professor tweeted "All I want for Christmas is black genocide," they'd have fired him within seconds.

    Why? The vast majority are nothing but ivory tower sitting, pencil necked pointin', liberal progressive seekin' geeks that have no audience but minds-full-of-mush young uns'.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder. Dr Michael Weiner (better known by his radio show name Michael Savage) was, and still is, correct.

    Chávez was a Catholic. He intended at one time to become a priest. He saw his socialist policies as having roots in the teachings of Jesus Christ
    Uh oh. Or, maybe Jesus wouldda been on the side of




    In what context is it OK to discuss and take into account US exploitation of South America?
    Further, if you were to take that into consideration, you'd see the seeds of Trump's nationalist argument, and appeal, and, with just a tiny bit of effort, be able to intellectually turn the whole thing back on the good professor. If Venezuela woulda been better off without US exploitation, wouldn't the US now be better off without Mexican exploitation or European exploitation or UN exploitation? And, thus, would the professor then defend genocide on THOSE peoples and for the same reasons?

    Poor arguments really should be easier to counter but, you gotta want to and you gotta try.

    I'm not worried. I noticed a long time ago that most of the freaks like the good professor do not own firearms, but are advocating for a revolution against - or in this case genocide against - those that do. Methinks his idea is not very well thought through.

    Prof Who Hoped for 'White Genocide' for Christmas Quits



    Why not defend from attacks by the left on conservative faculty members? I think it significant he failed to include professors he disagrees with politically from protection.

    We all know about the stupidity, racism, threats, and ignorance on social networks like Twitter and Facebook. We know it because we've experienced it ourselves. It's a given that if you are going to make idiotic "jokes" about wishing for white genocide, you are going to be attacked. If you make ignorant comments about being sick to your stomach at the sight of a display of patriotism, what do you expect from Twitter and other social media sites? Love, admiration, and hero worship?

    I think there's only one rational conclusion that can be reached to explain Ciccariello-Maher's rancid tweets: he wanted to be seen as a victim of "racists" and right wingers after the backlash. Nobody who knows anything about how social media operates these days could have been filled with any illusions about how some people would react.

    The professor wanted attention. He wanted people to feel sorry for him. He wanted to generate a little outrage against the right himself. He wanted to be seen standing on the leftist ramparts, waving a bloody shirt, calling attention to himself like any two-year-old who throws a screaming tantrum over absolutely nothing.

    It's what makes Ciccariello-Maher a fake victim and deserving of all the disapprobation we can muster.

    I'm sorry professor, your 15 minutes are up.

    Now, please move to the rear.
