Philadelphia, PA - The white, racist, Black Lives Matter supporting, Drexel University Professor George Ciccariello-Maher continues to be a disgrace to the school. In a social media post from Sunday, March 26, 2017, he said he wanted to "vomit" after watching an airline passenger give up his first-class seat for a soldier.
According to Fox News Insider, the post was made in a tweet to his Twitter account and said:
"Some guy gave up his first class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him. I'm trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul.
— George Ciccariello (@ciccmaher) March 26, 2017."
Mosul is apparently a reference to an Iraqi city where U.S. airstrikes have frequently occurred.
This is the same Professor that said the only gift he wanted last Christmas was "white genocide." Then to make sure he wasn't misunderstood, he then tweeted, "To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed.”
In response to the outrage from that comment, Ciccariello-Maher, who is white, said that it was a joke because "white isn't a race."
Even more outrage is occurring over this latest social media post. Despite his openly racists comments, George Ciccariello-Maher is still an Associate Professor at Drexel University.
In an attempt to answer the outrage over his latest post, Ciccariello-Maher said that the "U.S.-led invasion of Iraq has made the world a more dangerous place."
He also said that it would have been a more worthy gesture to have given the seat to a public school teacher, family doctor, or public defender. He doesn't get that people in those other professions aren't going into war zones and putting their lives on the line to defend America.
George Ciccariello-Maher's post in inexcusable and reprehensible. He should be held accountable for his actions, and Drexel University is embarrassing it's alumni by keeping this fool around.
In response to his behavior, people have already taken to his Amazon author page to give low reviews to his latest books.
Apparently Ciccariello-Maher's racist posts didn't generate enough backlash to get him fired, maybe this one can. Please spread the word and let's send a message that insulting our soldiers is not OK.
