George Ciccariello-Maher, the Drexel professor who once wished for ‘white genocide’ and also wanted to ‘vomit’ after seeing a passenger give up their seat for a member of the military, is in a bit of hot water. It seems his radical left-wing activism has drawn the ire of the university for which he is employed:
“But according to documents acquired by InsideHigherEd, Drexel Provost Brian Blake sent an email to Ciccariello in this month, advising him that the institution will conduct “a special committee of inquiry to investigate your conduct and provide findings and recommendations to me concerning your extremely damaging conduct.”
“The Provost (the university’s chief academic and financial officer) added that the professor’s behavior ‘has left me with no choice but to ensure that an appropriate review is conducted in order to deal with this serious distraction to the important academic mission of the university.’”
Apparently donors and students alike have been turned off by the Drexel professor:
“Numerous prospective students whom the university has admitted have written to the university stating that they will not attend,” Provost Blake wrote, noting that “at least two potential significant donors to the university have withheld previously promised donations.”
The university has been getting so many angry phone calls about the professor that they considered shutting down their entire phone system.
