Dec. 28, an embattled professor at Drexel University has resigned from his tenured position a year after lewd tweets put him in the national spotlight.
“After December 31st, 2017, I will no longer work at Drexel University,” said Professor George Ciccarielo-Maher.
Ciccarielo-Maher, professor of political science at Philadelphia’s Drexel University, gained notoriety on Dec. 24, 2016, when he tweeted “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.” The tweet quickly went viral and sparked an enormous amount of controversy.
“This is not a decision that I take lightly; however, after nearly year of 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 become unsustainable,” said Ciccarielo-Maher in a statement posted to his Twitter account.
The professor went on to say that America is at war, and that academia is at the forefront of that war.
“This is why the Right is targeting campuses with thinly veiled provocations disguised as free speech,” he said.
Tenured faculty to fight back and they need to fight for all faculty, at all levels, against attacks from the Right and white supremacists, he said.
“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 university said in a statement.
Drexel placed Ciccariello-Maher on administrative leave in October, citing threats against the professor and the campus community.
The university originally condemned the inflammatory tweet from 2016, but never formally punished Ciccariello-Maher.
“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,” Drexel said in a statement on Dec. 25, 2016.
The professor continued to make headlines over the past year for controversial statements.
“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,” he wrote on Twitter.
He also said Trumpism was to blame, along with white supremacist patriarchy for the massacre at a concert in Las Vegas less than 24 hours of the event. The official report on the motive of the Las Vegas shooter has yet to be confirmed.
Genesis A. Sanchez, a college student from Florida, told Big League Politics, “I don’t think that professors of higher education should simply push their own opinions on students, because it’s wrong and inappropriate.”
Louis S. Scataglia, a college student from Pennsylvania said, “The left fails to realize that they are the ones promoting violence in America, and it starts with the cesspool that is a liberal college campus.”
Biden Supporter Arrested After Shooting at Trump Supporters Driving Pickup Truck
Police have made an arrest in Kingsville, Maryland, after a Joe Biden supporter shot at Trump supporters driving a pickup truck.
The incident happened outside the Biden supporter’s residence. Douglas Kuhn was putting a large “Biden for President” sign up on his property on Saturday, October 17, when drivers of a pickup truck sporting Trump flags innocuously honked their horn while driving by. That was when Kuhn shot at them, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.
Thankfully no one was killed or injured. The pickup truck did not sustain any damage either.
The College Republicans at Towson University released the following statement, noting that the shooting victims were the organization’s former vice president and his father:

Douglas Kuhn is currently being held in jail without bail. He has been charged with both first- and second-degree assault.
How many times have we seen or heard stories about leftists—from Biden supporters to Antifa thugs—assaulting or shooting Trump supporters over the past four years? I stopped counting a while ago. Now compare that to the number of times we’ve seen or heard stories about the reverse. It’s negligible. If it happened the mainstream media wouldn’t let us hear the end of it.
Journalists won’t even bother asking Joe Biden about this story, so don’t hold your breath. As Tucker Carlson pointed out in last night’s monologue, they are significantly more concerned with the flavor of shakes he orders during campaign stops.
