Drexel Professor's right to be a moron shall not be infringed....

Of course his right to be  Drexel Professor ought to be rethunk...

A radical Drexel University professor who once wished for “White Genocide” for Christmas and hoped to “Abolish the White Race” is under fire again. This time, he said he wants to “vomit or yell about Mosul” after someone gave their seat to a uniformed soldier.

Drexel professor George Ciccariello, currently a visiting researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, shocked his online followers after he complained about an act of appreciation for a soldier.

“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 tweeted.

Well, he could have remained silent and let us wonder if he was an idiot, we should thank him for speaking up and removing all doubt.

Drexel, for its part notes that he made his statements outside the classroom, so he's likely going to continue working there:

Drexel University, in Philadelphia, responded to his tweet, saying the comments “were made outside the classroom, are his own opinion and do not represent the university’s views” in a statement to CNN.

“Drexel is committed to and vigorously supports our ROTC students, students on active duty and reserve, student veterans and alumni who have served in the military,” Drexel University Executive Director of Media Relations Niki Gianakaris said in a statement.

Why don't we send him to Sadi Arabia they will do us a favor they hanged thousands of their own people in. 2016 I don't have a problem with them killing that what military people are supposed to do. The problem is with the troture and cutting people's hands and things off for petty crimes. Why don't we do a Japan on them like Ww2.

He needs a one way ticket to the middle east and a parachute.

I would submit that this Drexel professor certainly lacks a fundamental understanding of American history. He obviously fails to comprehend or appreciate the fact that thousands of Soldiers like the one that prompted his absurd and disrespectful remarks have died, on his behalf, to keep this country safe from any form of Genocide, white or otherwise. So his logic is certainly flawed.
This also brings into question the credibility and quality of Drexel, as an institution of higher learning, if a professor who is so illiterate in his understanding of American history is retained as a member of their faculty.

What genocide sir?

I am a Veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and I also work in a Veterans Affairs department of a prominent University. I also continue to serve in the Army Reserve as a Drill Sergeant - but my opinion is my own and doesn't represent the governments in any way. I SUPPORT Dr. Ciccariello's ability to exercise his freedom of speech, a freedom that he clearly does not understand the value of. Although he was "trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul," he in fact did both in his snarky and self possessed comment on his social media platform where he is both the author and star of his own little theater where the nation's children are his paying viewers. Since Drexel is private and not an agent of the government, they are not obliged to enforce the 1st Amendment and besides his actions are subject to their code of conduct. (Arguably he may have violated section 8 or 10) If you're really upset by his comments why not contact the Drexel office of Equality and Diversity and their office of Community Standards and make a complaint?

It's probably a good thing that Professor C. did not display his ignorance by yelling because he may have found himself without a seat courtesy of the other passengers on the airplane. Regarding vomiting, he didn't have to do that since he soiled himself by his ignorant social media post.
