DHS employee calling for genocide of whites fired after months on paid leave
In August, the DHS put black nationalist Ayo Kimathi – owner and manager of the website War on the Horizon – on paid leave after the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) uncovered his online activities. Kimathi was an acquisitions officer at the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement division of DHS, which was in charge of overseeing small businesses.
Online, however, Komathi went by the handle, “Irritated Genie,” and predicted that a large race war would occur in the near future in the United States.
“Warfare is eminent, and in order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” he wrote on the website. He also advocated the "ethnic cleansing" of "black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors.”
Additionally, the National Journal reported that Kimathi claimed white people, along with President Barack Obama, were attempting to “homosexualize” black men to make them weaker. His targets appeared to include Jews, and he argued he was under attack by "zionist smallhats, the Uncle Tom koons."
Kimathi was officially fired on December 6.
According to Fox News, “Kimathi said in an email that he was proud of his work at ICE and predicted that fewer small businesses would win contracts after his firing.”
Why it took this long to relieve Kimathi of his position at DHS remains unclear. As an employee at a law enforcement agency, he had to receive written permission for any activity performed outside the department. Kimathi told his superiors that he was running a website simply called “WOH,” making it difficult to track properly, and that it was an entertainment outfit dedicated to selling concert and lecture videos.
“If he had adequately and truthfully described his group,” said Kimathi’s former supervisor to the SPLC, “I can’t imagine for a minute he would have been granted permission.”
As RT reported in November, however, Kimathi stayed on the government’s payroll months after he was tied to the hateful website. The campaign director for SPLC, John Glasstetter, couldn’t believe it.
"DHS should be tracking Kimathi, not employing him," he said at the time. "This isn't a mundane human resources matter or a tricky First Amendment question. DHS should have investigated and fired Kimathi months, or even years, ago.”
