A New York University scholar and former “white genocide” professor compared the American national anthem to the Nazi salute Friday.

Former Drexel University professor and current NYU scholar-in-residence George Ciccariello-Maher made the analogy in a tweet that received thousands of shares.

The scholar posted a photo of an article describing Germany’s 1934 ban of a football club after its members failed to give a Nazi salute at a game against a French team. The German team did not salute after threats that they would not be paid and that the French would not play if they did so because unspecified parties were concerned the Nazi salute would cause the crowd to riot. Ciccariello-Maher implicitly compared this incident to the NFL’s mandate that its players must either stand or remain in the locker room during the playing of the national anthem. (RELATED: Michael Moore And Other Celebrities Throw Fit Over NFL Anthem Decision)

Ciccariello-Maher previously made headlines for tweeting “all I want for Christmas is white genocide” and for blaming the Las Vegas massacre on white supremacist patriarchy. (RELATED: Prof: Vegas Massacre ‘Is What Happens When’ White People ‘Don’t Get What They Want’)

“Lol nah,” Ciccariello-Maher told The Daily Caller News Foundation when reached for comment.
