Professor fired for a politically-incorrect facebook post --but his university claims they're all for free speech??

The University of Virginia fired an "adjunct professor" for making a negative comment on social media about the crazed racist group "Black lives matter."

Oh, wait:  According to the U the guy has "agreed to take leave."  Ah, well, sure...he "agreed to take leave" to avoid being fired.  No substantive difference.

Douglas Muir responded to a Facebook post praising Black Lives Matter, writing “Black lives matter is the biggest rasist (sic) organisation (sic) since the clan. (sic) Are you kidding me. Disgusting!!!”

In the emperor's America, free speech is only for favored groups.  If you're not a member of one of those groups you're in danger of being fired if you voice an opinion that isn't "politically correct."

Now watch the precious munchkins at the university as they rationalize firing a guy for free speech: The U issued this bullshit statement:  “
While free speech and open discussion are fundamental principles of our nation and the university, Mr. Muir’s comment was entirely inappropriate. U.Va. does not condone actions that undermine our values, dedication to diversity and educational mission.”
Translation for the reading-impaired:  If you aren't 100% behind "diversity" you don't get to say so.

U.Va. Provost Tom Katsouleas made this even more clear, saying the university “stands firmly against racism and social injustice of any kind."  That's wonderful.  But watch as he goes on:
This position in no way squelches academic freedom, which welcomes dissent and encourages the voices of others whose perspectives may differ from ours — thereby adding new insights to our own. But statements such as Mr. Muir’s do not foster intellectual exploration, nor do they encourage the voices of others.”
Note the cunning mislead:  "Academic freedom welcomes dissent."  Oh, no doubt.  But you don't, and neither does your shitty university.  Apparently in the era of the emperor you're only free to offer an opinion if you push for killing cops or burning down buildings or towns.  Offer an opinion opposing these things gets you fired.

In case firing wasn't enough of a message, a Charlottesville city councilman also asked people to boycott Muir’s business.
Now, I don't know anyone who favors injustice, or abuse of power, or shooting innocent people, or...
Wait, BLM supporters have openly, repeatedly called for killing of cops.  And whites in general.  But hey, that's just peachy-cool, know, a century ago slavery existed in the U.S.

That's awful.
