There are two things about a story published by Blue Lives Matter that, sadly, nobody will be surprised by. One, someone found a way to blame Sunday’s tragedy in Las Vegas on Donald J. Trump, and two, that “someone” is a university professor.
Blue Lives Matter has chronicled the musings of George Ciccariello-Maher, yes the very same professor who previously — although he’s white himself — tweeted that the massacre of white people is a good thing. On Sunday, he got his wish when 59 people were murdered in Las Vegas. Blue Lives Matter posted his response to the massacre:
“An associate professor at Drexel University blamed the Las Vegas shooting on “white victimization” and “Trumpism” in a series of tweets on Twitter.
“White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don’t get what they want,” George Ciccariello-Maher post on his Twitter account. “The narrative of white victimization has been gradually built over the past 40 years.”
“Yesterday was a morbid symptom of what happens when those who believe they deserve to own the world also think it is being stolen from them,” Ciccariello-Maher tweeted. “It is the spinal column of Trumpism, and most extreme form is the white genocide myth.”
This is what happens when white men don’t get what they want? How does this stance withstand any test of logic? Don’t tens of millions of white men in America not get what they want every day of the week? In 2016, Chevrolet sold about 40,000 Corvettes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau there are about 122,766,000 white males in the country. How many didn’t get what they wanted last year?
The story goes on to reveal more of Ciccariello-Maher’s hatred — and Drexel University’s spinelessness in doing anything about it:
Ciccariello-Maher started his rant by tweeting “A White Man” at 8:08 a.m. Monday. He followed that with another tweet a couple hours later with, “It’s the white supremacist patriarchy, stupid.”
“…Drexel University told Fox News the professor’s tweets were not representative of the university’s views.
“The recent social media comments by George Ciccariello-Maher, associate professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel University, are his own opinion and do not represent the University’s views,” the university said in a statement.
“Drexel is deeply saddened by the tragic shooting in Las Vegas. The thoughts and prayers of the Drexel community are with the families of those affected by this senseless act of violence.”
Ciccariello-Maher has made outrageous statements before on Twitter that made national news. In 2016, the associate professor tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide.”
To ensure that nobody confused his tweet with sarcasm about white supremacy, he clarified tweeting, “To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed.”
In March, he said that seeing somebody give up their first-class plane seat for a soldier made him want to vomit.”
So the good ‘ole “thoughts and prayers…que será, será…” and everything’s fine? Remarkable. A man can publicly sanction a massacre and nobody at Drexel sees the need to take action against such a person? How terrifying is it to know that this is a man who is responsible for shaping the minds of our next generation?
The Blue Lives Matter story concludes by summing the situation up perfectly:
“It seems as if Ciccariello-Maher is testing if there’s any limits to what he can say without being fired, and he’s found that there are none.”
