A disturbing website that advocates for the murder of "a lot of whites" and "black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors" is run by a Department of Homeland Security employee, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The website, War on the Horizon, is run by a person calling himself "the Irritated Genie." The SPLC says that's actually Ayo Kimathi, who works for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement advocating for small-business owners. (Part of his job: Get guns and ammo for ICE, the Atlantic Wire explains.) Because ICE is a law enforcement agency, Kimathi had to get official permission to run his website, but when he did so he claimed it was simply an entertainment website, his former supervisor says. The supervisor discovered the truth in mid-June. A sampling of the site's content:
- The site aims to prepare black people for a coming race war. "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," it reads.
- The site names August "Nat Turner Month," a reference to a slave who led a deadly rebellion in 1831. To mark the month, the site says black people should "plan every act of vengeance, retaliation, protest, aggression, etc."
- President Obama is referred to as "a treasonous mulatto scum dweller … who will fight against reparations for Black people in amerikkka, but in favor of f-g rights for freaks in amerikkka and Afrika."
- Kimathi also offers up videos and gives speeches in which he airs his hatred of "the smallhates (white so-called ‘jews’) and the white homos like Gay Edgar Hoover," and a section of the site argues that white people want to "homosexualize" black men to weaken them.
ICE's deputy press secretary responded in a statement that "accusations of misconduct are investigated thoroughly and if substantiated, appropriate action is taken," but would not say whether Kimathi is being investigated. (Read more Department of Homeland Security
