The Drexel University professor who was placed on administrative leave in October after his tweets blaming “Trumpism” and the “narrative of white victimization” for the mass shooting in Las Vegas sparked an onslaught of death threats has announced he is resigning.
George Ciccariello-Maher, associate professor of political science, announced Thursday on Twitter that his resignation, effective Dec. 31, is not a decision he takes lightly.
“[H]owever, after nearly a year of prolonged harassment by right-wing white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs, after death threats and threats of violence directed against me and my family, my situation has grown unsustainable,” he wrote in a lengthy statement. “Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking, and organizing.”

Drexel said in a statement Thursday that Mr. Ciccariello-Maher decided to resign “in order to pursue other opportunities,” Campus Reform reported.
“Drexel University has accepted his resignation and recognizes the significant scholarly contributions that Professor Ciccariello-Maher has made to the field of political thought and his service to the Drexel University community as an outstanding classroom teacher,” the statement said. “Drexel University wishes Professor Ciccariello-Maher well in his future pursuits.”
The school had placed Mr. Ciccariello-Maher on leave back in October, citing numerous threats that had been made against him and the campus community. He played several threatening messages for CNN in a report Friday, but said the ones targeting his children were the most chilling.
The threats allegedly started one year ago after Mr. Ciccariello-Maher tweeted on Christmas Eve, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide,” prompting a response by Drexel calling his comment “utterly reprehensible” and “deeply disturbing.”
The Lenin-loving faux educator made the news often in 2017, such as when he tweeted that he wanted to “vomit” when an airline passenger gave up his first-class seat for a uniformed soldier, a series of tweets blaming “Trumpism” and white men, less than 24 hours after a gunman killed 58 people and injured 546 others during a country music festival in Las Vegas, another time when the student’s he’s brainwashed with his Marxist propaganda rioted, demanding his suspension be lifted, and a handful of other bizarre tweets and outbursts.
Mr. Ciccariello-Maher never apologized for the controversial Marxist tweets, and he has repeatedly blamed conservative media outlets for launching a smear campaign against him, instead of realizing that everything he knows is wrong, and learns to be an American again.
“We are at war, and academia is a crucial front in that war,” he wrote Thursday. “This is why the Right is targeting campuses with thinly veiled provocations disguised as free speech.”
“In the face of aggression from the racist Right and impending global catastrophe, we must defend our universities, our students, and ourselves by defending the most vulnerable among us and by making our campuses unsafe spaces for white supremacists,” he concluded.
But don’t think he’s alone, because there are left-wingnut professors all over America, poisoning our youth with their incomprehensible nonsense.
For example, this professor at the Massachusetts College of Art wants all white males to commit suicide, and a female professor at the University of Iowa, who wants white people to hate themselves simply because they’re white. Furthermore, and last in this list, but not the last in America, a professor at the University of New York City believes white supremacy is perpetuated simply by white couples having children.
American education is in a bad state of disrepair. Gone from the finest institutions in the world, to a laughingstock of faux education and very real propaganda.
It’s probably time a very large number of Professors and Graduate Assistants to be purged from our education system, because they have destroyed it from within.
