Zero Squared #118: Tweets, White Genocide, and Free Speech

Jul 14th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles, Zero Squared

George Ciccariello-Maher is a professor of Politics and Global Studies at Drexel University, the author of We Created Chavez: A People’s History of the Venezuelan Revolution, and at the center of ongoing twitter storms. On Christmas Eve of 2016 the professor tweeted “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide” and in March of of 2017 he tweeted that he had to hold back vomit when a soldier was given a first class seat on a flight he was on two days after the US bombing of Mosul. In this week’s episode we discuss his tweets, academic freedom, and free speech.

I want to remind you that Angela Nagle’s book Kill All Normies is available through Amazon and encourage you to ask your favorite bookstore or library to carry Zero Books titles.

    No disrespect to this intelligent, educated, and I assume sincere guy, but if the way he handled the Fox interview is any guide, he is not the person to be consulting about tactics.

    He didn’t even come out and say “i have never called for white genocide, i have no issue with whites or any other race, I was making a satirical joke about paranoid race separatists who tweet about their white victim complex, and claim they face genocide.”

    The soldier thing he didn’t clarify either.

    To be frustrated with a troll like Carlson is pointless, he is giving you the chance to best him and it isn’t really that hard to do so, if you can stay calm. Most people probably can’t, but Ciccariello-Maher actually did. He didn’t seem the least bit shook. He went on to inadvertently drag the many legitimate political points about class, imperialism, militarism, etc. through the mud by connecting them to a guy that looks like he calls for white genocide, calls murray a clansman without citing the source, disses soldiers etc. And he even went ad hominem before Carlson did.

    By the way, where has Murray’s science been debunked? I can understand if it is part of a larger movement that may be racist and right wing, and his politics are right wing, but manipulating scientific findings to nefarious ends is not the same as junk science.
