Communist Professor Placed On Administrative Leave Receives Massive Wave Of Support

The communist professor at Drexel University put on administrative leave after blaming the Las Vegas massacre on white people has had no shortage of supporters.

Drexel University politics professor George Ciccariello-Maher received support from fellow professors, activists, and students following his tweets saying “white supremacist patriarchy” was responsible for the Vegas shooting and that the massacre “is what happens when” white people “don’t get what they want.”

The university placed Ciccariello-Maher on administrative leave following his tweets, citing threats directed at the professor. (RELATED: Drexel Puts Tenured ‘White Genocide’ Prof On Leave After He Blamed Vegas Massacre On White People)

“The administration apparently did not consult with a duly constituted faculty committee prior to imposing the suspension [on Ciccariello-Maher],” said the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) in a letter Thursday to Drexel. The school did not provide the professor with an end date to or scheduled hearing regarding his suspension, alleging that this violated Ciccariello-Maher’s academic due process, the AAUP complained.

Professors such as Sujatha Fernandes of Sydney University and journalists Katie Halper of Salon and Vice also signaled support.

    I’m critical of both left and right. However, as a minority I do see that too much violence, terrorism and hatred comes from angry white men.
    The Lefty professor is right!
