Fascist: The Drexel University professor who joked encouragingly for “white genocide” is now calling for protests to silence a lecturer at Villanova University.
George Ciccariello-Maher had claimed that he had only been joking when he had tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide”. No one laughed then. Now he is demanding that protesters act to prevent Charles Murray from giving a speech at Villanova University. I don’t think anyone is laughing now either. You see, fascists aren’t really funny. They are vicious hateful people who want to destroy anyone who disagrees with them. The idea of freedom and free speech is alien to their thoughts.
They do like genocide, however. How interesting.
Note too that Drexel University did not consider Ciccariello-Maher’s genocide comment to be cause for censure. Is that a university you wish to send your kids to?
Update: Ciccariello-Maher also had this to say recently when he saw someone give up their first class seat to a soldier: “I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul.”
I ask again: Who wants to send their kids to a university that considers this man qualified to teach?
