Embrace The Hate: One ICE Employee's Quest For A Race War

from the holy-crazy dept

We all know that the Department of Homeland Security and its daughter agency, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, wield a great deal of power. One need only look at their ability to circumvent the need for warrants to search pilots to notice that. Beyond just pilots, ICE’s insistence that their metaphysical thought-bombs are of more import than any codified rights of citizens at the border certainly is a flexing of agency muscle. Even playing Kujo for the biggest sports league is a measure of their terrible relevancy. And, as the saying goes, great power comes with great responsibility, so you’d have to imagine that an agency like ICE takes its hiring practices quite seriously to make sure these extreme measures are carried out by a crack-team of super-agents.

But that’s all it would be: imagination. Because if it wasn’t, then DHS is going to have to explain how employing a guy running a website advocating the mass killing of white people makes for good human resources policy and slipped past the screeners. Meet Ayo Kimathi of the DHS.

Off-duty, he calls himself “the Irritated Genie.” He’s a gay-bashing, revenge-seeking black nationalist who advocates on his website – War on the Horizon – the mass murder of whites and the “ethnic cleansing” of “black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors.”

“Warfare is eminent,” the website declares, “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.”

You really have to love the kind of loon that claims to be a Christian in the same sentence he’s advocating killing whitey. I believe it was John 14:6 when Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. Also, if you see any pale-skinned dudes walking around, thou shalt dispatch them to eternal fire post-haste. Black power!”

More importantly, how does this psychopath get past the employment screenings? Now, Kimathi’s role in the DHS is essentially in procurement, am I really to believe that his being hired shouldn’t cast doubt on ICE hiring practices of folks that might actually take part in all the examples listed in the opening? He’s far more dangerous than others that have been harrassed by ICE. It’s not like he kept the site super-secret, either; he had to get doing this website approved by the brass, and was successful.

Kimathi obtained official permission but only by misrepresenting the true nature of his endeavor. He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures. He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon.

“If he had adequately and truthfully described his group,” the supervisor said, “I can’t imagine for a minute he would have been granted permission.”

You didn’t check? This isn’t just some minor crackpot pushing the limits of free speech, this guy has a barely-veiled hit list that includes Al Sharpton, Oprah, Colin Powell, and President Obama. Employed by Homeland Security, you have to hope this guy wasn’t simply trying to get into a position where he found himself close to any cracker or black “race traitor” on his list. Either way, it’s an incredible indictment on the DHS human resources office.

So, hey, government, listen up. I know you’re there, I know you’re listening. No more spying on us until you get your own house in order, mmkay?

Re: but but but

If it was a civilian saying this it would be 6 months solitary confinement and an outrageous bail.Sadly, it’s not the civilian/government issue that keeps him on the job.Most government employees are unionized. These are the chumps that whined to Congress about having the same health plans as we plebes. They’ve most likely got an air-tight contract that’s completely slanted to preserve this psycho’s job (and union dues payments) in all but the most insane of circumstances.IF he gets any kind of punishment, he’ll have representation at the table that will insist his extra-curricular activities have no bearing on his work. He could get the Lois Lerner treatment (weeks off with pay AND government network access). Firing this creep could take a very long time and WILL take a lot of lawyering money. And — I will say the unsaid — the racial card will be played.

I don’t really see why this is even newsworthy. His views may be abhorrent but he has a First-Amendment right to run a website advocating them on his private time. They’re within their rights to fire him for it, but as someone sitting on the sidelines advocating that you should think long and hard about where you’d draw the line, if you would. You might be supporting some things you’re not thinking about now.

Anyway, lots of people simultaneously hold normal jobs and patently crazy (though unrelated) beliefs on all sorts of subjects. The only reason this article exists is because racism of this sort is so extremely taboo that it’s mainstream to call it out. Other equally radical/crazy beliefs would not be as easy to condemn, and free speech isn’t decided by the trivial cases.

Re: do stupid

When you work for the federal government and your job is to but weapons for “ICE” you don’t get on your or the government’s “PC” and post it’s time to start killing whites. I tell you what. You start a blog and post the same word for word and just change the word white to black And see how fore your 1st-amendment right goes. The whites have sold out to black Thugs. I have black friends that I call my brother and sister. But a Black gang member or Thug can all kill each other out and I’ll sleep just fine at night. Ops. Was that a gun shot I just heard “Hot dog” Hope it was dead on shot.

I don’t like the man, and I don’t like his hateful words. But he has a right to say them

I can differentiate between speech that should be illegal and speech that I hate. The law isn’t there to shut other people up so I don’t get offended.

That goes for anyone, no matter their beliefs. I think one of the problems with our society is that we’ve taken to personally trying to find ways of punishing people for what they say instead of recognizing that they do have a right to say it, as much as we have a right to not listen to it. Trying to be vindictive over the things people say only results in about 40% of techdirt’s legal failures postings.
