DHS Still Hasn't Fired Black Supremacist Who Called for Mass Murder of Whites

Almost four months after he was unmasked as a militant black nationalist who called for murdering "Uncle Tom race traitors," Ayo Kimathi is still employed.

War on the Horizon, the website run by DHS employee Ayo Kimathi.

The black-nationalist Department of Homeland Security employee who was placed on leave almost four months ago for running a website that espouses the mass murder of whites has still not been fired, an agency spokesperson told National Journal.

The Southern Poverty Law Center first exposed Ayo Kimathi in August, prompting a small media firestorm that led DHS to place the procurement officer on administrative leave with pay pending review. DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed that his status has not changed and that he is still on leave pending review.

Kimathi, using the online nom de guerre "the Irritated Genie," called for "ethnic cleansing" of "black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors" on his website, which envisioned a massive race war on the horizon. "In order for Black people to survive the 21st century, we are going to have to kill a lot of whitesmore than our Christian hearts can possibly count," he wrote.

In other postings, he warned that whites and their enablers like President Obama are trying to "homosexualize" black men in order to make them weaker, and suggested that a woman's primary role in life should be to "keep a strong Black man happy." He also seemed to hold anti-Semitic views, claiming in a Facebook post that his website was under attack from a conspiracy of "zionist smallhats, the Uncle Tom koons," and, naturally, "the haters."

Kimathi, who has been at DHS since 2009, works for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and made $115,731 in 2012. Civil service laws make it difficult for the federal government to fire employees.

Government Executive's Charles Clark reported in early September that DHS received complaints about Kimathi as long as two years ago. A former supervisor of Kimathi's told the SPLC that "everybody in the office is afraid of him," and worried that he would "come in with a gun someday and go postal."

In September, a contractor at the Washington Navy Yard killed 12 people and injured eight others in a shooting rampage that also left him dead.

Homeland Security has condemned Kimathi's political views and said his employment is under review, but as of Monday afternoon, he remains employed. That's not acceptable, says Josh Glasstetter of the SPLC, which researches hate groups of all stripes. "DHS should be tracking Kimathi, not employing him," he told National Journal.

"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," Glasstetter added.

Kimathi has claimed his website was merely intended for entertainment. "The Irritated Genie of Soufeese" replied to a request for comment sent to his website saying "we will not be making any statements on this unfortunate situation."

if the law that allows this asshat to keep his job is the same for both then you are wrong.  He should be fired and sent away for testing:/

I think that's what makes this extra scary.  He should be protecting all of us from terrorists and he seems to be a homegrown terrorist himself.

I would hope it's in the process but it does say he's still employed.  Does anyone know if he's on leave or still working during this process?

Not to mention a violent bigot. Personally I think it's time to slam the federal government with emails and phone calls demanding his removal.

Why would they fire him?

He is simply articulating  the administration's views.
