A Drexel University professor who has made controversial statements in the past recently tweeted a statement that many are calling anti-American.
He said he tries not to “vomit” when first class passengers give up their seats to U.S. troop members.
Professor George Ciccariello tweeted:
“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.”

According to reports, so far, the professor’s tweet has been shared nearly 2,000 times and “liked” by over 1,000 users.
Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter, a veteran, was quick to respond on Twitter:
“You tried not to vomit or yell? No, you just sat there quietly like a little b****. Ignored, irrelevant, wishing you were a man.”
Another angry user tweeted:
“I’ve worked w Vietnam Vets w PTSD. This tweet literally made me sick to my stomach. Life’s easy from the cheap seats.”
In December 2016, Ciccariello tweeted another controversial statement which was not found punishable by administrators at Drexel. In the tweet, he said, “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide.”
“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.”
