When Dr. Alan Bloom decried the closing of the American mind, I think its a shame he obfuscated matters by being so totally overly optimistic. Closed is not the operative word. On most campuses these days the Amerikan mind is hermetically sealed. If you find courage in the idea of the glass being half full at the modern university, that just shows you are benighted enough to enjoy the flavor of warm horse urine.
The problem starts when otherwise capable academic institutions start entire departments of political correctness studies to appease the leftward regression of the intellectual zeitgeist. The parasites burrow in and the apple of learning then thoroughly rots to the core. Drexel University is the latest example of this depressing trend.
Drexel University used to be a place that turned out solid STEM types without the MIT egocentrism. They now are being converged to the SJW narrative and will henceforth produce Pajama Boy piles of marxian pony poop. At least that will be the absolutely pathetic level of fake credentialism we can expect from future Drexel University grads if Associate Professor George Ciccariello-Maher is now indicative of the quality of their faculty. He had an interesting Christmas wish when he sat on Santa’s Lap. This was conveyed via Twitter below.
All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.
I was less ambitious as a kid. All I wanted Christmas were my two front teeth. But then again, I’m no expert on race relations and therefore don’t make fabulous claims about which ones need to be genocided.
Dr. Ciccariello-Maher dug himself in deeper by attempting to explain his way out of the obvious hatred of his statements, which because he is a low-testosterone Leftist, took the form of a passive-aggressive defense in which he claimed to be a moral guardian of us all:
“On Christmas Eve, I sent a satirical tweet about an imaginary concept, ‘white genocide,'” he said in an e-mail. ‘For those who haven’t bothered to do their research, ‘white genocide’ is an idea invented by white supremacists and used to denounce everything from interracial relationships to multicultural policies (and most recently, against a tweet by State Farm Insurance). It is a figment of the racist imagination, it should be mocked, and I’m glad to have mocked it.”
Bad news for Dr. Ciccariello-Maher: Even the United Nations agrees that demographic displacement is ethnic genocide. In other words, he has confused the source of the message, which he dislikes, with the validity of the message, which is something an academic should never do. Clearly the man has such anger that it has compelled him to ignore his professional ethics in order to score ideological points in his lonely, doubt-ridden and unfocused mind.
Drexel is suffering condign humiliation as a result of Dr. Ciccariello-Maher’s coruscating Twitter brilliance. They are arranging a meeting to spank his pee-pee and send him on his way basically unpunished.
Ciccariello-Maher is nothing new. He’s not even the most virulent pathogen in the bloodstream. He reminds me of an another virtue-signaling anti-white white boy. He is the Ward Churchill wannabe of 2016. He doesn’t have a 9-11 Event to celebrate, so he just acts like the Kwame Nkrumo of Twitter. In Churchill’s parlance; he’s just a Little Lavrentiy Beria. A Little Lavrentiy Beria who fills out the paperwork and checks all the boxes for wannabe genociders.
I doubt we have to take him all that seriously. Drexel University doesn’t either. Christmas is just another superstitious sky-faerie festival to all the smart guys at DU. It will all blow over and Dr. CM will go back to his Twitter rants as soon as the carnival moves on to the next ridiculous outrage.
Of course there is now something else that really shouldn’t be taken all that seriously either: a diploma from Drexel. This is a shame. The place used to be worth something before the Leftists wrecked it. The same can be said about the United States of Amerika as well at this point…
