Leftist news outlet attacks anyone who spoke out against calls for white genocide
(INTELLIHUB) — Drexel University professor and self described communist George Ciccariello-Maher found himself in hot water during the holidays after he tweeted that all he wanted for Christmas was white genocide.
The university strongly condemned his statement which seemingly called for the murder of an untold number of whites but the professor doubled down and, with the help of numerous leftist websites, claimed that it was satire and nothing to be alarmed about.
Now, the left has delved even further into insanity by actually claiming that the news outlets who reported on Ciccariello’s call for genocide are the actual racists for simply reporting the communist professors own words. That’s right, according to this line of thought, if you speak out against calls to kill people based on their skin color and that skin color happens to be white then you are the real racist.
Infamous hard left feminist Amanda Marcotte, writing for the always laughable outlet Salon, recently published a piece in which she declares that the reporting on Ciccariello’s disgusting Tweet was actually designed to mainstream racism against minorities.
“Breitbart News also spent Christmas trying to mainstream the white supremacist concept of “white genocide.” White supremacists spend a lot of time pushing the belief that multiculturalists and anti-racists are trying to commit genocide against white people by breeding them out of existence. (That’s one reason they have such a hateful obsession with interracial relationships.),” Marcotte wrote.
“Over the Christmas holiday, Breitbart found an excuse to introduce the concept of “white genocide” into their coverage, by attacking a Drexel University professor who tried to mock white supremacists.”
In the sick world that is modern American liberalism, exposing a professor for attacking whites amounts to “mainstreaming” white supremacist beliefs. And don’t forget it was all just a joke!
On Christmas Eve, a leftist political theory scholar at Drexel named George Ciccariello-Maher sent out a now-legendary tweet saying, “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide.” He was clearly joking, tweaking the noses of white supremacists who have developed this paranoid belief that there is such a thing, but Warner Todd Huston at Breitbart pretended to take Ciccariello-Maher seriously, writing, “The professor’s Twitter feed is filled with hateful, obnoxious messages, anti-Americanism, slams of President Donald Trump, attacks on Jews, as well as pro-Black Lives Matter and pro-communist sloganeering.”
That Brietbart article was a clever way to soften up the larger conservative audience to this white supremacist idea. By pretending this joke was a serious call for killing off white people, Huston can imply that “white genocide” is real. Propping up a standard villain — a left-wing academic — and making it about “political correctness” helps ease the audience into buying into a narrative that previously only existed in fringe far-right circles that openly embrace racism.
This is how white supremacists operate: They tell stories about how white Christians are supposedly under assault from Jews and people of color, which in turn allows them to justify their racist views as a form of self-protection. Now those narratives are getting louder in mainstream conservative spaces.
Obviously the above quoted text from Salon and Marcotte is pure nonsense on its face but it also directly contradicts known facts about the professor and his penchant for violence as noted by his support and promotion of radical leftists who directly and openly called for violence as a political tool.
In an article about the far left ideas that motivate someone like Ciccariello, Breitbart reporter Lee Stranahan revealed the beliefs of one of his key influences, Franz Fanon.
To dismiss Dr. Ciccorioello-Maher’s statement as anything other than a literal call for violence shows a deep ignorance about the revolutionary ideology of both the professor and one of his obvious key influences, Franz Fanon.
Based on his website, a central part of Ciccariello-Maher’s ideas revolve around the concept of “decolonization” and the major proponent of the concept of decolonization was Franz Fanon.
Who is Ciccariello-Maher’s idol Franz Fanon and why is he central to understanding why the professor isn’t being ironic when he talks about “white genocide.?”
As Breitbart News has reported before, Franz Fanon was a Marxist revolutionary philosopher, and he’s been a central influence to both the black liberation movement of the 1960s—Black Panther Party leader Eldridge Cleaver said that ”every brother on a rooftop can quote Fanon.’’—and the current incarnation of the Black Liberation movement: Black Lives Matter.
A New York Times book review of a biography of Fanon is titled The Doctor Prescribed Violence—fitting since one of Fanon’s most famous quotes is:
“Violence is a cleansing force. It frees the native from his inferiority complex and from his despair and inaction; it makes him fearless and restores his self-respect.”
The New York Times review gives a good capsule biographical sketch of Fanon and his impact:
“When the third world was the great hope of the international left — three very long decades ago, in other words — no book had a more seductive mystique than ”The Wretched of the Earth.” Its author, Frantz Fanon, was a psychiatrist, originally from Martinique, who had become a spokesman for the Algerian revolution against French colonialism. He was black, dashing and, even better, a martyr — succumbing to leukemia at the age of 36, a year before Algeria’s independence in 1962. Fanon was hardly alone in championing the violent overthrow of colonialism. But his flair for incendiary rhetoric was unmatched.”
Franz Fanon wrote about the topic of violence in vivid terms, talking about “searing bullters and bloodstained knives:”
“In decolonization, there is therefore the need of a complete calling in question of the colonial situation. If we wish to describe it precisely, we might find it in the wellknown words: “The last shall be first and the first last.” Decolonization is the putting into practice of this sentence. That is why, if we try to describe it, all decolonization is successful.
The naked truth of decolonization evokes for us the searing bullets and bloodstained knives which emanate from it. For if the last shall be first, this will only come to pass after a murderous and decisive struggle between the two protagonists.”
Clearly the people who have influenced George Ciccariello-Maher directly supported the use of violence and now leftist propagandists such as Marcotte expect us to believe that it was satire?
Even worse, anyone who speaks out against leftist calls for genocide are the ones being attacked as racist!?
We truly live in an insane world.
Note: Actual socialist parties in the U.S. are also pledging their solidarity with the embattled professor.
