State Rep. Justin Humphrey – the Grand Wizard of the Derplahoman Party – is back in the news after he compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK while debating draconian legislation on the Oklahoma House floor.
The comments occurred when Humphrey was using his bruised and battered brain to debate right wing legislation that would prohibit state colleges and universities from requiring gender or sexual diversity training, and prohibit teachers from having honest and open discussions about race in America.
Obviously, an elected representative echoing the same racist thoughts his voters hold dear – comparing a mainstream civil rights protest movement that was formed to end police brutality and violence against Black Americans to a racist organization that was formed to increase brutality and violence towards Black Americans – ruffled some feathers, and they should. The only similarity between Black Lives Matter and the Ku Klux Klan is that they're both three words and both have to do with race. That's about it.
That being said, maybe this was all just an innocent screw up?
