University of VirginiaA University of Virginia professor is taking a leave of absence after his remarks on Facebook comparing Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan caused a stir.

Commenting on a post highlighting Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza’s recent trip to Charlottesville, Douglas Muir, who lectures at the UVa. School of Engineering, said Black Lives Matter is the biggest racist organization since the Ku Klux Klan.

“Are you kidding me. Disgusting!!!” Mr. Muir wrote, as reported by The Cavalier Daily.

The post, which has since been deleted, was spotted by Charlottesville resident Joe Starsia, who took a screenshot of it and petitioned the university to take action.

“It is unacceptable for one of your lecturers to be comparing [Black Lives Matter] to the Klan,” Mr. Starsia wrote in a tweet to the university’s Darden School of Business.

    At least the KKK weren’t LOOTERS, they didn’t steal that I know of, the BLM thugs are much worse! And the KKK never walked on or burned the flag or stopped traffic on major h-ways!

    • Denise

      The KKK were murders, slanders, rapist, liars, thieves, destroyers, and blasphemers who used the symbol of the cross in their demonic assaults.

      • Rodney Steward

        And the BLM thugs are ??———-

    Its true! If people, especially black people, would calm down and take an honest assessment of BLM’s handiwork they might notice that BLM is sponsored by white liberals i.e. Soros and friends! In the end, these liberals are actually getting blacks to injure, kill, loot, and destroy fellow blacks and black communities. With of course, a few token white folks thrown in the mix for good measure.
    These rich, white, Democratic Liberals are the new KKK. Instead of white sheets they wear Jimmy Choos and Brooks Brothers suits. They enlist and pay hate filled blacks to do their dirty work. The results speak for themselves!
    If an honest conversation were to issue, most people would agree that racism is demonic and grotesque regardless of what color it shows up in.

      I agree, Denise. Plus, this prof didn’t say they were the kkk or blm was just like them. He said they are the biggest racist org since them. Big difference. Of course, people (read MSM) hear what they want to hear.

      • Denise

        This breaks my heart and makes me furrious! I have a racially mixed family and what I see happening today is demonic.
        I also believe that we are living in the last days, just prior to the return of the Lord. This is yet another satanic manifestation and another fulfillment of bible prophecy.

      Want more proof? If one of these BLM “protest” events were to ever break out, in let’s say… Chappaqua, or Martha’s Vineyard, it would be contained in an instant. GUARANTEED!
      They never seem to occur in these areas, hmmmm I wonder why?
