Racist George Ciccariello of Drexel University is going to keep his job after a 23 second investigation by the administrators of the university. I wonder how long he would have lasted if he had wished for black genocide? Would it have been “academic freedom” then?
Here’s how the WaPo described it:
Professor keeps job after ‘white genocide’ tweet, but conservative media continues to go after liberal targets
In a statement he gave to The Washington Post and other media this week, Ciccariello-Maher said he worried that Drexel’s speedy response to the outrage could have a chilling effect on academic speech. It would not have that effect on him.
“I teach regularly on the history of genocidal practices like colonialism and slavery—genocides carried out by the very same kind of violent racists who are smearing me today,” he wrote. “White supremacy is on the rise, and we must fight it by any means. In that fight, universities will need to choose whether they are on the side of free expression and academic debate, or on the side of the racist mob.”
Excuse me? He’s a racist but it’s the conservatives fault. I applaud the WaPo for hiring the mentally retarded but they should be sweeping floors and cleaning toilets, not writing a column that is miles above their pay grade. Okay, so requesting white genocide is just something said to pass the time but someone writing the name Trump in chalk on the sidewalk requires psychiatric treatment for liberals.
