A far-left Drexel University professor — known for making inflammatory remarks on social media — is resigning from his teaching job, blaming a right-wing “internet mob” for alleged “harassment.”
George Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of politics and global studies at the Philadelphia school, will be leaving next year, he said in a statement Thursday.
He blamed “right-wing, white supremacist media outlets and internet mobs” that allegedly harassed him for nearly a year.
Staying at Drexel in the eye of this storm has become detrimental to my own writing, speaking and organizing,” he wrote.
The professor had drawn attention for a series of inflammatory remarks. Most recently, he was placed on administrative leave after he blamed the Oct. 1 Las Vegas massacre of 58 people on the “narrative of white victimization” and “Trumpism.”
