On Wednesday, the Washington Times reported that George Ciccariello, the Drexel University professor who said last December that all he wants for Christmas is white genocide, made headlines when he expressed outrage that a first-class airline passenger gave his seat to a soldier in uniform. On Thursday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson interviewed Ciccariello, and effectively sliced and diced the hard-left professor.
“Some guy gave up his first class seat for a uniformed soldier. People are thanking him. I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul,” he wrote on Twitter. Ciccariello has protected his Twitter feed, but not before it was noticed by Townhall columnist and veteran Kurt Schlichter.
“You tried not to vomit or yell? No, you just sat there quietly like a little b****. Ignored, irrelevant, wishing you were a man,” he wrote.
Here’s how Ciccariello responded to Carlson:

Notice, if you will, that he threw out the old liberal canard that people join the military only because of hard economic times. As a 10-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps who joined near the end of the Vietnam era, I personally found his comments insulting, condescending and degrading.
Apparently, others did as well:
@TuckerCarlson This guy Is a disgrace & should be fired!

Drexel won’t fire him, however…

That’s actually not very hard to do these days, as we’ve noted several times.
The Times noted that the backlash against Ciccariello was quite extensive:
“I’ve worked w Vietnam Vets w PTSD. This tweet literally made me sick to my stomach,” wrote one user. “Life’s easy from the cheap seats.”
“The University vigorously supports the right of its faculty members and students to freely express their opinions in the course of academic debate and discussion,” University President John A. Fry said in a statement released Dec. 29. “In this vein, we recognize Professor Ciccariello-Maher’s tweets as protected speech.”
They’re protected in more ways than one, apparently, since he made his feed private…
Here’s the entire segment, which includes discussion of more than Ciccariello’s offensive tweet:
