We wrote about the professor’s comments last week. Now he has been placed on leave.

The Daily Caller reports:

Drexel Puts Tenured ‘White Genocide’ Prof On Leave After He Blamed Vegas Massacre On White People

Drexel University put a tenured professor on leave after he blamed the Las Vegas massacre on white people, the professor revealed Tuesday.

George Ciccariello-Maher, a tenured politics professor at Drexel, announced the university had placed him on administrative leave, following comments on the Las Vegas massacre, in an op-ed for The Washington Post

“It’s the white supremacist patriarchy, stupid,” the professor tweeted, rationalizing the massacre’s occurrence. “But liberals will drown out all discourse with a deafening chorus screeching ‘gun control.’”..

The professor said that he asked his students about the relationship between massacres and white masculinity after the Las Vegas attack and alleged that Drexel, by placing him on leave, was depriving them of academic freedom, in his WaPo op-ed.

“By bowing to pressure from racist internet trolls, Drexel has sent the wrong signal: That you can control a university’s curriculum with anonymous threats of violence,” said the professor. He suggested that he may be pursuing legal action.

Geo, I hate to say this, but you claim to be the holder of a Ph.D., but your statements seem to be on the level of a high school 10th grader, as you know or should, that's the grade that the weak students start to become High School drop outs. Your current statements seem to be more along the line's of those high school drop outs. As much as I hate to make this statement - Do you really hold a Ph.D.?

Leave he should be fired. He is a prime example of why No teacher should ever get to keep a job just because they have been on the job a certain number of years. Merit and merit alone should be what keeps them employed and NOTHING ELSE.

Placed on leave? You must be joking. Firing is the only appropriate action. Nothing else is fair to America. Until these idiots are shown the proper consequences for verbal violence our nation will never be safe.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. White supremacy is to blame for a white Liberal mass-murdering a bunch of white Conservatives? Am I missing something?

This is reaching a pitch that I have never seen before. I read these fascist liberal rags every day, because I want to know what is being said. ...NY Times, WaPo, HuffPo, Vox, etc. The deductions they make are crazier and crazier, but what startles me the most, is that they no longer call each other on their bull$#!+. I read recently in an op ed that the Wasserman-Schultz scandal was actually President Trump's fault. Never mind the fact that Mr. Trump was not in officer when these felonies were committed, or that these people were employed directly by the Nation's leading Democratic politicians. Liberals are no longer concerned with arguing for their side of the truth. They have been content to live in a world of evil fiction.

Eric, if you keep in mind that Liberalism, in all it's guises, is a form of mental illness, their rantings & ravings make perfect sense.
