Drexel University Prof Blames Las Vegas Shooting on ‘Trumpism’ and White Men

Drexel University Prof Blames Las Vegas Shooting on ‘Trumpism’ and White Men

“White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything.”

You may remember Drexel University Professor George Ciccariello-Maher. We wrote about him last year because he wished for ‘white genocide’ for Christmas.

Now the professor has graced us with his hot take on the causes of the Las Vegas shooting.His theories are unlikely to surprise you.

Caleb Parke reports at FOX News:

Professor blames Las Vegas massacre on ‘Trumpism,’ ‘narrative of white victimization’

Extreme “Trumpism” and “white victimization” motivated the Las Vegas shooter who killed 59 and injured at least 515 others, according to a Drexel University professor.

Associate Professor George Ciccariello-Maher tweeted just hours after the massacre “white people and men” will go on shooting sprees “when they don’t get what they want.”

Stephen Paddock used a perch inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to rain down fire on a crowd at a country music concert Sunday night.

Drexel University told Fox News the professor’s tweets don’t represent 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.”

Here’s the chain of tweets the professor wrote following the attack:

So his thesis is that this problem and others can be blamed on a single race.

There’s a word for that.

How does his “theory” explain Charles Whitman’s atrocity, which happened 50 years ago? Or how ’bout the Bath School outrage that occurred 90 years ago.

He himself is a white dude. Like a dark cultist, his prayers and mantras are that if he cannot be saved he may at least be… consumed last.

Funny white dude (aka Mr. Butt-Crack) wants to see white genocide here in America. Typical over-educated but under-motivated intellectual. Genocide can begin at home, he just needs to work up the courage before jumping.

    It seems if you’re going to point to evidence of race-based genocide you’d need more than one shooter, something more like an entire, legally ignored pattern of long term violence, centered on race, with thousands of victims over time.

    Something like Chicago.

White men think something is being stolen from them … so one of them attacks … a country music concert.

Even taken on its own wacky terms, this resembles no known form of logic. Is this guy a closet feminist?

Well, he wanted a white genocide. He should be happy looking at the published faces of the victims, a large majority of whom were white.

He’s right about one thing. It’s not the guns, or useless gun control proposals. It’s the shooters and their motivations. Most gun deaths in this country are suicides. Next, gang murders. Next, domestic violence. It’s worth trying to find out why this monster did what he did, especially if it was ideologically-driven, not just psychopathy.

It’s not hard to figure out how journalism and our public discourse has devolved into opinions with minimal analysis or facts. And the facts that are available are often twisted or ignored as a way to mold what is real into a specific meme.

Just look at how the academe is fast becoming a place where “good work” outside of math and science simply requires phrasing and wording accepted opinions in a “professional” way. Most all social “science” effort has become an exercise in grammar and language construct. Not critical thought.

The result: From media to academia we have a burgeoning class of paid activists no longer true to past standards.

Wow he had a short brush with rational logic on the topic of gun control, only to dive back down into moonbat land with his racialism.

More like racism. He should play the game of swapping any other race in for “white” in his statement.

He can’t help himself, being a product of granola eaters. Probably drives a Subaru too 😉

“White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything.”

What an outright lie.

Omigod, not this homicidal psycho racist again! Why hasn’t Drexel fired him? Must its donor base shrink to non-sustainable levels before it acts? Well, give it time …. But meanwhile young malleable minds are being poisoned by this toxic lunatic.

Momma, don’t let your babies grow up to be Drexel students

too bad he doesn’t lead by example and remove his oppressive white maleness (for various values of “male”) from society permanently.

Perhaps the press could ask if he’s still thrilled with Revolutionary Venezuela?

Of course, they’d receive the stock answer: yes, Venezuela is a mess, but, it’s not the fault of la Revolución, it’s because the United States wrecked it. As he explains in “We Created Chávez: A People’s History of the Venezuelan Revolution”

Even ignoring the dumb Tweets, how can anyone take someone whose ideology so obviously blinds him to reality seriously?

Surely this is someone for whom the phrase “useful idiot” is inadequate to describe the depth of idiocy?

I’m not gonna sit here and be lectured by a white male professor…from Drexel.

Calling for your own death [through racial genocide], at the hands of another racial group, is simply insane. It is indicative of either advanced delusion or a suicidal desire for self destruction; either of which can result in committal for mental observation. That pretty much establishes the relevancy of this character.

What is of interest is that any institute of higher learning would continue to employ a person who displays evidence of potentially dangerous mental health issues.

    re: “Calling for your own death [through racial genocide], at the hands of another racial group, is simply insane.”

    And the 21 Century seems flooded with insanity. The Germans and Swedes seemingly have embraced the ‘ethnic cleansing’ of themselves from their prospective countries. Why would a national peoples group do such a thing? Delusion and insanity are the only two motives I can ascribe. All of Western Civ seems to be sick, but some are sicker than others.

“White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything”

Hmmmmm, does that include your teaching position at Drexel, white boy?

How about giving it up for a POC?

Sometimes I wonder about these nut jobs and how they retain the umbrella of protection of academia; although he must be skating on thin ice.

On a stretch here, with tongue firmly planted in cheek – maybe his call for genocide is what caused the tragedy? I am waiting on further information concerning Vegas, but will say that had the alleged perpetrator had the same lifestyle but was poor and did not own property, he would be described as transient, with mental problems and a dreg of society. Since he had money and property, he fits the media rhetoric.

I find the so-called professor’s comments on white privilege to be nauseating. I grew up poor and in a group home in the UK, later coming to the US after gaining a doctorate in science and engineering. I work hard, keep a house and family. I have throughout my encounters not observed this so-called entitlement, except for those who feel entitled to my money, some youngsters, and liberal faculty/workers who feel entitled to share in and/or take credit for my work.

Never hire anyone from Drexel who can’t show they actively fought against the leftism.

Safety school

Interesting that he keeps replying to himself. Quite the echo chamber.

He seems to be missing the jackass in the window. It’s the abortion culture: color diversity (i.e. denial of individual dignity), sex and final solutions (i.e. choice the day after), instant and immediate gratification, state demand for taxable commodities, Planned Parenthood market for lucrative parts, etc. that drives progressive corruption (PC) and is a first-order forcing of catastrophic anthropogenic climate change (e.g. mas abortion fields).

Gee, I can’t recall the last time I was told I was entitled to anything based on my whiteness or my maleness. Oh wait! My wife told me I was entitled to replace the rotting joists on our deck owing to my maleness. My bad.

So, he is saying, a white man murders and maims hundreds of white people at a country music festival and this is characterized as justified white genocide, perpetrated by a single white murderer. I would not be surprised if we read that this loser climbs onto an elevated position one day and begins to commit mass murder to try and prove his psychotic point and self prophesize. What sort of maniac thinks this s*^t up? The FBI needs to lock up this loon.

Well we know you are that George, but what are we?

Entitlement? Quarterback Cam just raised a clenched fist in salute to black power. If a white man d8d the same thing he would be stoned to death.

This professor needs to be fired immediately, but not because of his bigoted, racist statements. Instead he needs to be let go because of his incredibly weak intellect and his utter lack of reasoning skills. Do we want a man of this kind educating our poor little snowflakes?
