Ayo Kimathi helps the Department of Homeland Security procure guns and ammunitions for United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Once out of the office, though, his hobbies apparently include advocating for a race war on the World Wide Web.
One former DHS supervisor of Kimathi told the Southern Press Law Center that the ICE small business specialist “fights for the little guy,” has a “commanding presence” and is pretty good at his job. Not all of Kimathi’s current co-workers have such nice words, though, and a SPLC report published this week might leave even more federal agents stuck answering questions about a man perhaps best known by his online alias: Irritated Genie.
Don Terry of the SPLC’s Hatewatch group published a profile of Kimathi on Wednesday this week and linked the man as being “the Irritated Genie,” the administrator of a website called War on the Horizon. And although a Google search for Kimathi can help assist a number of small firms towards selling munitions to the DHS, a quick query of his alleged alter-ego returns something that ICE isn’t all too happy about.
According to the SPLC, Kimathi calls for the killing of whites, Jews and gays using that alias, and he even travels the country discussing how homosexuality, pedophilia, bestiality and “white culture” is being used as a “weapon of mass destruction” against black people worldwide. Lectures are uploaded on YouTube and are available alongside other diatribes discussing how “white-sex offenders…have infested the Black Conscious community like roaches in a cereal box.”
“War on the Horizon (WOH) is a Haitianist organization created for the purpose of preparing Black people worldwide for an unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race,” the website states. “[W]hites around the world are absolutely determined to exterminate Afrikan people in all corners of the Earth.”
The SPLC reported that Kimathi received permission from his superiors to run the website when he isn’t working in the office, but didn’t exactly explain as much information as critics think he could have.
“If he had adequately and truthfully described his group,” a former supervisor said, “I can’t imagine for a minute he would have been granted permission.”
“When I saw the website, I was stunned,” the supervisor said. “To see the hate, to know that he is a federal employee, it bothered me.”
“People are afraid he will come in with a gun someday and go postal. I am astounded, he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”
In the hours since the SPLC first profiled Kimathi, his name and that of his alleged alter-ego return more results on Google than ever before. When the SPLC called the phone number listed on the WOH website, the person on the other end of the line wouldn’t comment if the two persons were one in the same.
“He just goes by the Irritated Genie,” Hatewatch was told.
Meanwhile, though, ICE has already managed to issue a response which could soon eventually leave the Irritable Genie more time to travel the country lecturing about eradicating whites.
"ICE does not condone any type of hateful rhetoric or advocacy of violence of any kind against anyone," Deputy Press Secretary Gillian Christensen said in a statement to Huffington Post. "Every ICE employee is held to the highest standard of professional and ethical conduct. Accusations of misconduct are investigated thoroughly and if substantiated, appropriate action is taken."
