The embattled Ole Miss Sociology professor, James Thomas, that was recently granted tenure has once again stirred the proverbial pot by referring back to one of his previous Twitter posts.
The latest tweet to catch the rounds said “When I said MAGA teens are modern-day Hitlerjugend, I meant it. What we’re watching at this rally is the aesthetics of fascism.”

Professor James Thomas has earned himself national media spotlight several times after saying U.S. Senators “don’t deserve civility” and comparing Trump supporters to Hitler supporters on Twitter.
He has drawn derision from within the Ole Miss Community. The tweets even put his tenure in question, after a recent closed board meeting was held for nearly two hours to discuss Thomas’s tenure–despite the open meeting prior tenuring others without question.
The new tweet originally reported by Campus Reform stated that neither Thomas nor the University of Mississippi has provided additional comment.
