Drexel Professor Tweets He Was ‘Trying Not To Vomit’ After Passenger Gave Up First-Class Seat For Soldier

PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—A tweet posted by a Drexel University professor is stirring up some controversy.

George Ciccariello-Maher, is an associate professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel.

On Sunday he posted a tweet that read, “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.”

The reference to Mosul came on the heels of an investigation into a U.S. military airstrike that reportedly killed 200 civilians.

This is not the first time Ciccariello-Maher has made headlines for his social media posts.

Around Christmas he tweeted, “All I want for Christmas is white genocide.”

“He did it on his personal time, he has his own voice, he has the right to say them,” said student Chad DiFrancesco. “It’s America. First Amendment. So he can tweet whatever he want to tweet.”

Despite the visceral reaction his words are receiving, the professor isn’t backing down, saying in a statement, “I sent a personal tweet in reaction to what I considered a smug and self-congratulatory gesture by a first class passenger toward a uniformed soldier. Maybe predictably, my tweet has since been fed into and misrepresented by the outrage machine that is right wing media. Needless to say my personal views expressed off campus have absolutely nothing to do with those of my employer, Drexel University.”

Some students CBS3 talked to say it would seem hard to separate the two.

“That means outside of work this is how you probably act and inside of work it’s a different story so I don’t think we need those types of people around students,” said Aleisha Coulter, a student at Drexel.

In a statement, Drexel University says, “The recent social media comments by George Ciccariello-Maher were made outside the classroom, are his opinion and do not represent the university’s views.”

The professor has since made his Twitter account private.

At last check he has more than 10,000 followers.

  1. Also, if the professor has children at home, I will be making a complaint to Child Protective Services. He wants White Genocide. His children are white. He wants his children among the dead of all the white people he hates. He is a psychotic monster that should not be allowed to have children and they should be removed immediately.

  2. What I do Drexel students. I see your resume while this guy is there: it goes in the trash.

  3. When someone is physically ugly, emotionally confused, and socially inept, they become VERY ANGRY! This RIDICULOUS “PROFESSOR” is so ANGRY at the world, THAT he acts like a fool. He can’t help himself. His chosen occupation does not bring him fulfillment. His chosen ideology does not bring him peace. HE IS AN ANGRY MESS and he will continue to inflict his UGLINESS on the world, until someone finally puts him out of his misery (or he does it himself). He is a very bad person.

  4. Tony Smith says:

    Yes, el maestro has the right to be an evil ignoranimous, but Drexel also the has the right to quote Trump, “YOU’RE FIRED!”

  5. Bob Enyart says:

    Do I remember George Ciccariello-Mahe’s quote correctly: “My personal views expressed off campus have absolutely everything to do with the kinds of professors my employer Drexel University hires.” ?

  6. I wonder if students at Drexel are afforded the same latitude for their comments. That would be something to look into.

  7. What a fool. This “professor” fails to recognize the soldier is only serving and carrying out the will of the very oligarchy he worships.

  8. Kurt Smith says:

    Politics and Global Studies?!? hahahahahahahahahaha!!! Worthless! Day-um bro why not just get a PhD in Leaf Raking and actually contribute something to the world.
    And as for your “Needless to say my personal views expressed off campus have absolutely nothing to do with those of my employer, Drexel University,” you’re not only worthless to society, you’re a lying sack of pig excrement. Pathetic and miserable.

  9. George Ciccariello-Maher? This same guy was advocating genocide a few weeks back which makes him a criminal in most of the world.

  10. I’d have gladly stuck my fist in his mouth to help him out.

  11. John Hill says:

    Unfortunately he hates this country and typifies the left’s anti American attitude and at time seditious behavior. More and more ppl want to vomit over the left’s vile and disgusting hate filled attitude.

  12. This guy is an IDIOT and should NOT be teaching students! WHY? First of all, did he somehow know that that PARTICULAR soldier had anything to do with Mosul? Or Seria at all?

    Secondly, does the ‘professer’ (purposely misspelled) EVER use his ‘work’ computer for personal use? I am betting he does.

    Lastly, likening the soldier to ALL people in the military is the same as likening the IDIOT PROFESSOR to ALL teachers everywhere!!

  13. Typical radical professor , who brainwashes students with liberal socialism , anti American,anti God ideologies, and when the students graduate, they are inhibited to believe in God, nor have the ability to free thinking. Higher education has destroyed open minds, and creates repeaters Trolls of liberal utopian delusion.

  14. Liberals are so sick. There are drugs for it, but just for management of symptoms. No cure.

  15. Another Socialist living the good life in the United States courtesy of the taxpayers.
    Let’s offer him a one-way ticket to the Socialist paradise of Venezuela!

    His comment makes me want to puke on him!

  16. this little man is just looking for attention. Poor little man cant seem to get any respect, he couldn’t get a seat in first class, so no one should. He’s had his 15 minutes of fame, now he can sit around with his other socialist friends and brag about how they stuck it to the lower class.

  17. Georgey is obviously a terrorist sympathizing loser.

  18. George Ciccariello-Maher,
    I find you to be a cretinous coward who should respect his betters. Obviously, that is beyond you, and your limited abilities. Were it not for those who you mock anonymously, you would likely be a resident in a grave created by other Leftists. Why not do the brave thing and move to North Korea? I’m sure they would welcome you with open arms. You are just another “useful idiot”, and since you are so intelligent and well educated, you ought to know where the phrase originated and its meaning.

  19. Fyckk this communist phaggit.

  20. Email the Drexel alumni association and demand that they demand this a-hole be fired.

  21. Saw this moron on Tucker Carlson, Tucker tore him a new one. What a disgrace this professor is to America, he made me want to vomit, all over him. Drexel should fire the a-hole but of course they will not. I hope the alumni with hold there donations to this liberal POS institution.

  22. Saw this guy on Tucker last night. He is a real tool and embarrassment to Drexel. Its a shame that a guy like this and others are tasked with the responsibility of molding young minds. Whether it was done on his own time or not, on or off campus he still represents Drexel. Just another example of the pompous stupidity of the left.

    How much does it cost to go to Drexel? May be time to rethink this investment!

  23. Freedom of speech or not tis was a person just doing something nice. Its only a seat on a airplane. Damn. Saw this professor on Tucker last night. He is a real tool.

  24. Typical, cowardly, liberal slime. Now he’s a victim of misrepresentation. He needs one of those pink puzzy hats.

  25. Did he throw up when Obama tallied more drone strikes than Bush? Or when Clinton bombed a the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Afrika? Or when JFK got us into Vietnam. Or when LBJ illegally bombed Laos and Cambodia? lol

  26. Typical behavior for a liberal…..

  27. Paul Roberts says:

    George Ciccariello-Maher – OK, Withhold all funding to the school unless the professor leaves. We need to honor our heroes in the military. The professor is an idiot. A genius, but an idiot. We do not want our young student influenced by this human garbage.

  28. I agree with Tom above. Post everywhere so that Drexel Alums are aware and withhold funds. Furthermore, the public needs to understand that the left has bred this culture of hatred and disdain for anyone that does not agree with their perspective. They claim to have the larger tent, which is simply not true. Blessings to the kind passenger who was a true patriot in forfeiting his seat for a soldier who works to protect all US citizens at all times, even those who vomit at the thought of him.

  29. “Maybe predictably, my tweet has since been fed into and misrepresented by the outrage machine that is right wing media.”

    I tried really hard to figure out what in the professor’s hateful tweet could have possibly been misrepresented. It pretty much speaks for itself. Then again the “you’ve taken me out of context” line of argument is the liberal fallback when public reaction to asinine statements is negative.

  30. George Ciccariello-Maher, is an associate professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel meaning he’s un-tenured and subject to discipline if 1000’s of people were to write and complain and threaten to withhold alumini funds. I’ll bet he goes ahead and throws up if enough people contact Drexel’s Office of Alumni Relations

  31. The so-called “higher” education is quickly making themselves known as anti-American. Parents, put your money into Hillsdale College or other schools with strong pro-American values. At least research the values of the faculties of schools your children are considering.

  32. noelleg44 says:

    Give him a gun and send him to Syria. See if he can handle it.

  33. This guy wouldn’t last 30 seconds in a foxhole. It’s because of those who can (and do), that allow him to have the freedom he and all of us enjoy. Maybe what this guy should do is hug a puppy and stay in his safe zone at his school.

  34. Cut grants and federal funds to All liberal Colleges.
    Time to drain the educational swamp. Public Education has turned into tax funded, expensive, liberal’s Madrasa. Common Core has turned out to be a disaster. Our new generation of Snowflakes can’t do math due to the methods taught for basic division and calculations.

    Not everyone is entitled to a College education. We have a need in this country for trade and skilled labor that is not being filled, (electricians and plumbers). We don’t need the barely functional liberal generation going to school for Women Studies or to be lawyers. Let’s cut funding to all but the best and brightest at the top without a quota system for gender or race.

  35. Note both the soldier and the person who gave up the seat have the courage to make a public statement; in the vernacular, the cojones to stand up for what they believe and to live what they think is right. And the soldier, like law enforcement officers across our land every day, “Lays down his life for his friend”. In contradistinction to George Ciccariello-Maher who does not have any of the aforementioned cojones and kept his liberal mouth shut on that plane. The only answer to “why” he did not speak out is that he is a coward. And it is millions of folks like that soldier who made and make it possible for George to tweet away.

  36. Democrats are hateful, dogmatic, arrogant, vengeful, unethical, intolerant, devious, hypocritical, corrupt, and often violent.

    1. And that’s their better attributes.

  37. He has the right to his own opinion. I have a right to my opinion of his opinion. And I have a right to make sure that no one I know considers going to Drexel University without the foreknowledge that they hire people who publicly express such personal opinions.

  38. This is Leftism. This professor is simply expressing the typical PC-Hate-Think that drives leftists/progressives/liberals/Democrats.

    Sure he has a right to say/think such things, but that is not the real problem.

    Leftist-globalism as embodied by the today’s Left/Democrat party is no more compatible with American Constitutionalism than Islamic governance. The reality is that under the Left’s veneer of “caring about women and minorities” is communism, in which the American Left deeply rooted be Marxism, Leninism, Maoism or whatever.

    Islam is not just a religion, it is also a form of government and is the second most prevalent form of totalitarian-fascist government on Earth – just behind communism.

    The harsh, cold reality is that Leftism and Islamism share more in common than the Left does with American-Constitutionalism.

    There is no right, no freedom to overthrow a duly elected US government, but that is what the Left is attempting to do.

  39. This un-American a-hole of a “professor” probably hid from the draft in his younger days. The school should fire him immediately. Nothing less.

  40. Right. And a professor who said in a “private” tweet that Mooschelle looked like a gorilla would face no repercussions from Drexel? Liberal hypocrisy on display.

  41. Oh please professor don’t vomit. Let it catch in your throat so people can watch you choke to death.

  42. d0ct0rj says:

    If you’re going to be sick, professor, go back to Drexel to throw up. They’re used to liberal vomit there.

  43. Stir up drama then claim misrepresentation. Typical liberal mouth vomit. What’s vomit worthy is you are teaching our youth.

  44. This the kind of person that largely makes up the Demo-globalist party. And sadly, your children are being taught by these creatures.

  45. He’s getting everything he wanted, attention, publicity, name recognition. There is no “bad” publicity
