Professor warns America is 'at war' with alt-right

A professor who has received death threats over his Twitter messages championing gun control and criticizing the U.S. military has left his job over the controversy and is warning his supporters that America is at war with the right and white supremacists.
"We are at war, and academia is a crucial front in that war. This is why the Right is targeting campuses with thinly veiled provocations disguised as free speech. My case and many others show just how cynical such appeals are, and how little the wingnuts care about academic freedom," wrote George Ciccariello-Maher, a former associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Thursday in a Facebook post. He then announced he was taking a post with New York University in New York City.
