George Ciccarielo Maher is a political theorist who espouses anti-American, anarchist views. In March 2017, Ciccarielo Maher caused controversy when he tweeted from a flight he was on that “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.”[1]

Ciccarielo-Maher initially drew attention to himself when, in December 2016, he posted on Twitter that “all I want for Christmas is White Genocide.”[2] He followed that with, “to clarify:  when the whites were massacred during the Haitian revolution that was a good thing indeed.”[3]
