Georgetown Prof Compares Marriage Proponents to White Supremacists, Pope to George Washington

On Sunday's “Meet The Press,” Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson compared those who defend traditional marriage with white supremacists.  (See video below.)

In a roundtable discussion on the NBC Sunday morning show, Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed argued that opponents of same-sex marriage are not bigots. He said, “To suggest that you are motivated by a hatred for somebody else because you believe that the foundation acculturating and socializing institution of western civilization is something to be protected and defended is intolerance itself.”

Dyson interjected by comparing traditional marriage defenders with white supremacists, saying, “The same argument was made in defense of white supremacy against African-American people...The very same argument: it will destroy civilization, it will undermine the American family, it will challenge our civic institutions, it will unravel our civil polities.”

“So the Pope is George Wallace?” Reed asked.

“Not George Wallace, I’m saying George Washington,” Dyson responded.

This is a cryptic comment which, in context, may refer to the fact that Washington was a slave owner.

These outrageous remarks came just days after Dyson reportedly said Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was "a symbolic Jew" who "invited a metaphoric Hitler to commit Holocaust and genocide upon his own people" because of his decision on the Voting Rights Act.

In the Spring 2013 semester at Georgetown, Dyson taught a class called "Barack Obama and Race."
