Professor Ciccorioello-Maher dreams of white genocide as in Haiti

Dreaming of a White Genocide: US professor doubles down

When George Ciccorioello-Maher, a professor at Philadelphia’s Drexel University in the US, tweeted a wish for “white genocide” on Christmas Day, the phrase “white genocide” ominously trended on Twitter.

    The shocking tweet Ciccorioello-Maher sent out: “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide” is instructive. It conveys an ideology and far-left belief system being taught today at most of America’s universities.

    But the rabid anti-white educator, one of many lurking in the corridors of American institutions, not only wished genocide on whites but called such a massacre a “good thing indeed”.

    In yet another Christmas Day Tweet, doubling down on his calls for racial violence, he added: “To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian revolution, that was a good thing indeed.”

    Ciccariello-Maher later deleted the first tweet and has since secured his account by making it private, but by the end of Christmas Day, Drexel University released a statement about the professor, saying:

    “Drexel became aware today of Associate Professor George Ciccariello-Maher’s inflammatory tweet, which was posted on his personal Twitter account on Dec. 24, 2016. While the University recognizes the right of its faculty to freely express their thoughts and opinions in public debate, Professor Ciccariello-Maher’s comments are utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University.

    The University is taking this situation very seriously. We contacted Ciccariello-Maher today to arrange a meeting to discuss this matter in detail.”

    Professor Ciccorioello-Maher, who has a PhD in Political Science from UC Berkeley, describes himself as a “radical political theorist” on his website.

    Responding to Drexel’s announcement, Ciccariello-Maher stated: “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.” The Party for Socialism and Liberation agreed with the radical professor.

    Some have attempted to dismiss Ciccorioello-Maher’s statement as mere rhetorical flourish and nothing to be taken seriously. For example, Atlantic magazine’s Senior Editor Adam Serwer implied that Ciccorioello-Maher must have meant it ironically, because “race is a social construct”. Swerver, who is Jewish, added that only Nazis and stupid people believed in racial categories.

    However, to dismiss Ciccorioello-Maher’s statement as anything other than an open call for violence shows a deep ignorance about the revolutionary ideology of both the professor and one of his obvious key influences, Franz Fanon.

    Based on his website, a central part of Ciccariello-Maher’s ideas revolve around the concept of “decolonization”. The major proponent of the concept of decolonization through violence, was Fanon, an author that the educator quotes from liberally. As Fanon himself puts it: “Violence is a cleansing force. It frees the native from his inferiority complex and from his despair and inaction; it makes him fearless and restores his self-respect.”

    Fanon was a Marxist revolutionary, and he’s been a central influence to the current black racial liberation movement: Black Lives Matter. A New York Times book review of a biography of Fanon is titled The Doctor Prescribed Violence. But the presciption of “cleansing violence” has resulted in abject failure. In the 200 years of black rule, Haiti has become one of the poorest countries in the world.
