George Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia, only wanted one thing for Christmas: "white genocide."

That's what he tweeted on Christmas Eve before subsequently deleting the tweet.

He later returned to Twitter on Christmas Day to "clarify himself" after his tweets began to garner significant attention.

"To clarify: when the whites were massacred during the Haitian Revolution, that was a good thing indeed," he said Sunday afternoon.

In another tweet uncovered from earlier in December, Ciccariello-Maher describes himself as not being "alt-left," but rather an "outright communist."

But according to the Daily Caller, this is not Ciccariello-Maher's first time inciting outrage on Twitter after tweeting incendiary comments about white people, even once tweeting in June 2015 that the white race should be "abolished."

And his employer is not exactly thrilled over his Christmas Eve comments. Drexel told the Daily Caller:

While the University recognizes the right of its faculty to freely express their thoughts and opinions in public debate, Professor Ciccariello-Maher’s comments are utterly reprehensible, deeply disturbing, and do not in any way reflect the values of the University.

The University is taking this situation very seriously. We contacted Ciccariello-Maher today to arrange a meeting to discuss this matter in detail.

The professor has written three books, all on communism and Venezuela — which has failed horribly in the South American country as its citizens continue to starve to death — and he writes and contributes to liberal websites like Salon, the Huffington Post, Alternet and others.

Why Ciccariello-Maher teaches at a private university that is costly to attend as an "outright communist" is unknown.

Ciccariello-Maher has also since made his public, verified Twitter account private.
