Remember George Ciccariello-Maher, the professor who tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide”? Well, he made a return to Twitter prominence last week, celebrating the stabbing of right-wing Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who’s been called the “Trump of Brazil.” You have to wonder if comments like these are why Georgie doesn’t seem to have a job anymore. Let’s take a look.
In one of the few instances of Twitter holding the far-left to account, former Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher got suspended last week after saying “I was having a good day, and then fascist Jair Bolsonaro got stabbed…so now I’m having a *great* day.” It seems like Twitter suspended the former professor for 12 hours or fewer for “glorifying violence.” “We prohibit content that condones or celebrates acts of violence that could promote imitation of the act.”
George first came into the spotlight two years ago when he said “all I want for Christmas is white genocide,” which apparently was supposed to mock people who believe in white genocide, but he was still teaching at Drexel when, after the Las Vegas massacre last year, he said “white people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don’t get what they want,” reported The Daily Caller.
Ciccariello-Maher, who has since left both Drexel and New York University, has drawn a genius comparison between the national anthem and the Nazi salute and tweeted optimistically about a little kid beating a pinata of an ICE officer.
Don’t recall there being a Twitter suspension for THAT one, but good on Twitter for taking action this time, I guess? Personally, I’d rather have as few restrictions on speech as possible, but if the left is playing dirty in the culture war by stoking outrage to silence dissent, it might be time to fight fire with fire.
Illegal Alien Charged With Murdering Iowa Student
You’ve probably heard by now that an illegal alien has been charged with the murder of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts. Now, taking the life of an American, especially one so young and full of opportunity, is definitely the most destructive thing an illegal alien could do to academia, but it’s not the only way in which they’ve been assaulting our campuses.
Authorities charged 24-year-old Mexican illegal alien Christian Bahena Rivera with the murder of Mollie Tibbetts. It would appear that the willingness to kill someone in a country whose resources he’s leeching isn’t the only way in which Christian is messed up — if the Daily Beast and some other outlets are correct, his parents didn’t even know how to spell “Christian.”
Mollie went missing over a month ago and Christian led investigators to her body, which was buried beneath corn stalks on a farm field near Brooklyn, Iowa. So there you have it — an American’s dreams ripped away by someone who’s not even supposed to be here.
The point is that Americans don’t OWN this crime. If our nation’s leaders had done a better job guarding the border, Mollie would’ve been finishing off her first week of classes at the University of Iowa right about now.
And remember: it’s not just lives that are at stake, it’s also our country’s resources. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the federal government has spent over $1 billion and state governments have spent over $44 billion educating about 12.5 million illegal aliens and 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens.
We shower money and positive media coverage upon these people, bend over backwards to be politically correct when referring to them, and then get called racist for trying to address the problem — weak borders — that enabled them to commit the crime in the first place. Something doesn’t quite line up.
Trump Supporter Resigns From ‘Commie Camp’
Meet Gabriella Mamet, who had the unique displeasure of serving as a camp counselor for the social justice-themed Camp Kinderland — whose campers made Antifa flags for one activity — while being a Trump supporter. Now you’re probably wondering: why would someone who supports Trump sign up for a job focused on communist indoctrination? Well, Gabriella told me that she didn’t get the impression the place was a leftist hivemind during the phone interview or from browsing the site, but she sure was in for a surprise, particularly from the kids, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
She said they were “attacking me for my political views….They were saying that they felt threatened by me as a counselor and not knowing my views on gun control…they said to my face all Trump supporters are bad people. They’re racist, homophobic and we don’t want them at our camp.”
Camp Kinderland apparently assigned Gabriella to a bunk full of 14 and 15-year-old kids. You know how much of a pain in the ass that age group usually is, but just imagine if their brains are addled with both immaturity AND Marxism.
Campers “were justifying the police officers being shot [in Ferguson],” said Gabriella, whose father serves in the force. “They were basically saying that it was okay for the police officers to be shot because people were so angry.”
After a month of putting up with this crap, the 20-year-old counselor was scheduled to switch bunks last Sunday, but said she resigned after her boss simply told the kids she was needed elsewhere and didn’t hold them accountable for their actions. She’s now worried that the camp won’t pay her if this story gets out.
Prof Ordered To Apologize For Elevator ‘Lingerie’ Joke
Merrimack College professor Simona Sharoni reported King’s College London political theory professor Richard Ned Lebow for saying “ladies’ lingerie” when asked which floor he wanted to visit, reported The Washington Post. Because you know: at first it’s only a harmless joke, but next thing you know this 76-year-old man will be out raping in broad daylight.
Sharoni and Lebow were attending a conference in San Francisco, of course, held by the International Studies Association. In her complaint to the ISA, Sharoni said “I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that [she and another colleague] froze and didn’t confront him….As a survivor of sexual harassment in the academy, I am quite shaken by this incident.”
When he found out she had complained, Lebow wrote to Sharoni, saying he “had no desire to insult women or to make [her] feel uncomfortable,” calling her complaint “frivolous,” and saying that, like her, he is “strongly opposed to the exploitation, coercion or humiliation of women….As such evils continue, it seems to me to make sense to direct our attention to real offenses, not those that are imagined or marginal.”
But ISA executive director Mark Boyer called Lebow’s joke “offensive and inappropriate,” said that his calling the complaint “frivolous” was an even “more serious violation,” and ordered him to send Sharoni an “unequivocal apology” if he doesn’t want to be punished, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
Lebow has refused to apologize and good on him. Of course, the true harassers in this scenario are Sharoni and the “scholarly” group for, like some sort of totalitarian police force, trying to extort a false confession out of this poor man. Perhaps the International Studies Association needs to study up a bit on what has happened internationally in societies that punish thoughtcrime.
