DHS Manager Ayo “Irritated Genie” Kimathi’s Punishment: Paid Vacation

Hot Air’s Ed Morrisey reports:

Paid administrative leave“?  After operating a website that lists the President of the United States on an enemies list, doesn’t the Department of Homeland Security have a couple of better options?

The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that an employee who runs a racist website predicting and advocating a race war has been put on paid administrative leave.

Ayo Kimathi, an acquisitions officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement who is in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government, operates the website named “War on the Horizon.” It includes descriptions of an “unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race.” Kimathi is black.

Kimathi, who calls himself the “Irritated Genie,” told his supervisors that the website was set up to sell concert and lecture videos.

Kimathi has been with the department since 2009. His website criticizes whites, gays, those of mixed race, and blacks who integrate with whites. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, earlier this week reported on Kimathi’s role in running the site.

I’ll give you even odds he gets his job back, too. Remember what his job is?

Kimathi’s former supervisor said among his duties at DHS and ICE is speaking at various vendor events. He’s one of the agency’s public faces. It is his job to advocate for small business owners “white, black, historically disadvantaged, disabled veteran-owned, everybody,” the supervisor said.

“He fights for the little guy,” the supervisor said. “And he’s very good at it. He has a commanding presence. He’s very suave. It’s almost as if he has a split personality.”

The real question is this: how did DHS manage to miss this when even the Southern Poverty Law Center managed to find it — especially with DHS’ hyperventilation about right-wing extremism?
