Drexel Prof Has Two Personalities, Belief Systems. One For The Classroom And One Outside It. What Purified BS. He Hates The White People And The Military!
Drexel Professor Tweets He Was ‘Trying Not To Vomit’ After Passenger Gave Up First-Class Seat For Soldier
“He did it on his personal time, he has his own voice, he has the right to say them,” said student Chad DiFrancesco. “It’s America. First Amendment. So he can tweet whatever he want to tweet.”
Despite the visceral reaction his words are receiving, the professor isn’t backing down, saying in a statement, “I sent a personal tweet in reaction to what I considered a smug and self-congratulatory gesture by a first class passenger toward a uniformed soldier. Maybe predictably, my tweet has since been fed into and misrepresented by the outrage machine that is right wing media. Needless to say my personal views expressed off campus have absolutely nothing to do with those of my employer, Drexel University.”
Some students CBS3 talked to say it would seem hard to separate the two.
“That means outside of work this is how you probably act and inside of work it’s a different story so I don’t think we need those types of people around students,” said Aleisha Coulter, a student at Drexel.
In a statement, Drexel University says, “The recent social media comments by George Ciccariello-Maher were made outside the classroom, are his opinion and do not represent the university’s views.”
The professor has since made his Twitter account private.
