Prof calls NRA ‘terrorist organization’ following Texas massacre
- Matthew Gabriele, a professor of Medieval Studies at Virginia Tech, tweeted that “The NRA is a terrorist organization” just hours after the Santa Fe shooting.
- The professor has also sparked controversy with his tweets in the past, blasting the modern GOP as "white supremacy" and declaring that the 2017 Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia, Ed Gillespie, ran a “racist campaign.”
Almost immediately after the Santa Fe High School shooting, a professor at Virginia Tech tweeted that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a “terrorist organization.”
This is not the first time that Gabriele has sparked controversy with his tweets, however.
In December, as Campus Reform reported, the professor tweeted that “The modern GOP is nothing but white supremacy,” and in a previous tweet he declared that the 2017 Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia, Ed Gillespie, ran a “racist campaign.”
“@EdWGillespie is running a racist campaign. Kneeling. Confederate statues. BS immigration fears. Pedophiles. Gillespie has no honor #vagov,” tweeted the professor.
The professor also previously tweeted a link to an article about a controversial Latino Victory Fund ad against Gillespie, and asks “Why don’t you admit your entire party runs racist, fearful campaigns?”
Campus Reform reached out to Gabriele for comment on his latest tweet, but has not received a response.
