Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher, who made a spectacle of himself by tweeting and expressing some of the most vile, misguided left-wing views in the mainstream arena, has announced his resignation from the classroom after one of his most controversial years. And while it’s true that President Donald Trump has probably never even heard of Ciccariello, much less had anything to do with his ousting, we’re going to take this as another mark in favor of Making America Great Again. At the very least, Ciccariello’s absence will go a long way towards making Drexel University great again.
In a statement released Thursday, the professor said, “Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking and organizing.” Blaming “right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs” for forcing him out of a job, Ciccariello said that December 31, 2017 would mark his final day of employment with Drexel.
Of course, what Ciccariello calls “right-wing,” most Americans would call “moderately conservative.” What Ciccariello calls “white supremacist media outlets,” most Americans would call “websites to the right of the Huffington Post.” And what Ciccariello calls “internet mobs,” most people would call “decent people standing up to the insanity that is this professor’s anti-American mindset.”
But hey, those are all just words. And speaking of words, let’s go back and recall some of the things Ciccariello said to turn himself into one of this country’s most despised academics. Recently, in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, he feigned shock over the assailant being a “white man” and blamed “Trumpism” for visiting this horror upon us. On another occasion this year, he felt the need to share this painfully nasty tweet: “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.” And anyone who knows this clown’s name will recall his Christmas wish last year, when he said that all he wanted under the tree was “white genocide.”
Yeah, he’s a real piece of work.
As happy as we are to see that Ciccariello will not be indoctrinating students in the comfy confines of his classroom for the foreseeable future, we’re sure that his busy itinerary of “writing, speaking, and organizing” means that we haven’t heard the last of him. Which is fine. Life just wouldn’t be as interesting without some easy targets to kick around, and Ciccariello’s blindness to this country’s greatness makes him an easier target than most. He’ll spend another year luxuriating in the very freedoms he hates and we’ll spend another year fighting back against everything he and his ilk believe in.
Should be fun.
