Ep. 170: George Ciccariello-Maher Told the Truth About Toxic White Masculinity and Mass Shootings and Lost His Job

George Ciccariello-Maher is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a political scientist and activist who is a visiting faculty member at New York University. Professor Ciccariello-Maher was formerly at Drexel University before he was forced out of his position by a coordinated right-wing campaign of harassment which included death threats and other violence.  Professor Ciccariello-Maher was targeted by the right-wing mob in this new era of McCarthyism because of a series of online posts and other comments which discussed toxic white masculinity and mass murder by guns in the aftermath of the Las Vegas Massacre. He further inflamed the mob by also mocking the delusional myth of so-called "white genocide" that is circulated by white supremacists across the right-wing echo chamber including Fox "News". During this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, George and Chauncey discuss white identity politics, the right-wing's assault on higher education, as well as the rise of Donald Trump and what this moment reveals about enduring white supremacy and white male rage. George also shares what it was like to go on "Fox News" and defeat Tucker Carlson.  In this week's episode, Chauncey DeVega continues to caution people to remain focused on the real issues instead of being mesmerized by Donald Trump's extremely bad and shameful second week of 2018--a week which included revelations about hush money to a porn star, saying that nonwhite people come from "sh@!hole" countries, the release of the very damning Fusion GPS testimony, and incompetence during a public meeting on immigration. To close out this week's podcast, Chauncey discusses the connections between "white trash" and Trump's "sh@!hole" slur of nonwhite immigrants.
