DALLAS, OR (KPTV) -

Protesters will call for Dallas City Councilman Micky Garus to resign over several controversial comments that were made on Facebook.

Demonstrators will be gathering at the Polk County Courthouse Friday at 11 a.m.

Last weekend, Councilman Garus posted on his personal Facebook page that he thinks the Islamic faith is “pure evil” and that Muslims pose a “grave threat to our culture, country, and race.”

The Councilman also wrote a post threatening violence toward transgender students last week.
