Hey, Twitchy faithful! Remember George Ciccariello-Maher? No? He is — was — the Drexel University associate professor who found himself struggling not to vomit at the sight of a uniformed U.S. soldier on his flight:
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.

Oh yeah, he’s also the wit who tweeted, “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.” He didn’t lose his teaching gig over that tweet, but now Drexel University is losing him.
After December 31st, 2017, I will no longer work at Drexel University. pic.twitter.com/bAM37dbv1q

Oh no! Why? In a lengthy statement, he explains that he’s suffered “nearly a year of harassment by right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs.” He also makes it sound as though he personally were the last support beam holding up the entire American university system.
In the past year, the forces of resurgent white supremacy have tasted blood and are howling for more. Given the pressure they will continue to apply, universities must form a common front against the most reprehensible forces in society and refuse to bow to their pressure, intimidation, and threats. Only then will universities stand any chance of survival.
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.
Defending the most vulnerable among us? For a minute we thought he was going to start protesting Planned Parenthood.
I'm thinking you're just a big ol' drama queen like the white supremacists are.
Bye, Felicia. https://t.co/ZM9vRNEDUD

Huh. Turns out tweeting about how seeing people respect soldiers makes you want to "vomit" is not a great career strategy. https://t.co/4H0jsjOd8h

Quitting your job because you get criticised on the internet is a great way to show that you're part of the proletariat https://t.co/0scz3yJtGQ

I love this. It’s how freedom of speech should work. Drexel (apparently) didn’t fire him, but that didn’t immunize him from consequences. Everybody wins. https://t.co/qFN0ouIAEU

English translation. I wasn't able to get away with leftist indoctrination masquerading as education so I'm whining about it with some vacuous nonsense and then bugging out to try it again somewhere else. https://t.co/X9F8DVFym8

This raises the question of what marketable skills Mr Ciccariello possesses outside of academia. https://t.co/vp4Eeh782R

Just move to a Venezuelan university. There are hundreds of positions available. You helped to create those vacancies anyway.
Mudate a una universidad Venezolana. Hay cientos de puestos libres. Igual tú ayudaste a crearlos. https://t.co/XmhiMXJ5Jz
