A radical professor who once wished for “White Genocide” for Christmas and wanted to “vomit” after seeing someone give up their first-class airline seat to a soldier, is currently under investigation by his embattled employer, Drexel University, citing negative coverage that led to fleeing students and donors.
Philadelphia-based Drexel had previously investigated the “white genocide” tweets and ended up claiming that its professor’s comments fell under the category of “protected speech” and that he wouldn’t lose his job.
But according to documents acquired by InsideHigherEd, Drexel Provost Brian Blake sent an email to Ciccariello in this month, advising him that the institution will conduct “a special committee of inquiry to investigate your conduct and provide findings and recommendations to me concerning your extremely damaging conduct.”
Some serious bad news for this guy.
It is pretty stunning that he still has a job after his white genocide comment but it’s nice to see that Drexel is at least pretending to care about it.
Obviously, college campuses across the country are becoming dangerous places for conservatives to even exist let alone speak out.
Hopefully, this kind of nonsense won’t be tolerated at Drexel much longer.
