A Homeland Security employee who runs a racist website that predicts an “unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race” has been placed on paid administrative leave by the agency.

Ayo Kimathi, an acquisitions officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, calls himself the “Irritated Genie” and runs an anti-white, anti-gay website called the War on the Horizon (WOH).

At the agency, the Homeland Security employee is in charge of the procurement of guns, handcuffs and ammunition for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Kimathi has worked at the Homeland Security Department since 2009. But the black supremacist spends nights and weekends preparing for a violent race war that he believes will soon sweep over the country.

“Warfare is eminent, and in order for black people to survive the 21stcentury, we are going to have to kill a lot of whites – more than our Christian hearts can possibly count,” Kimathi wrote on his website, advocating the mass murder of white people, gays, those of mixed races and blacks who integrate with whites. He calls African-Americans who mix with other races “black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors.”

The WOH lists enemies of the group, which include Rev. Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, President Barack Obama, Lil Wayne, Condoleezza Rice, “Colon” Powell and Whoopi Goldberg for being “treasonous mulatto scum dwellers… who will fight against reparations for Black people in amerikkka, but in favor of fag rights for freaking in amerikkka and Africa.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization, last week reported Kimathi’s role in running the website. One of the man’s former supervisors told the SPLC that “everybody in the office is afraid of” Kimathi and that co-workers fear “he will come in with a gun and someday go postal.”

“This guy is filled with hate,” the supervisor said. “…I am astounded he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”

Employees who work at the ICE are required to obtain the government’s permission before engaging in organized activities outside of the agency, such as taking outside jobs at McDonalds, running a bingo game at a church, volunteering or running a website.

Kimathi received permission to run his website, but lied about the nature of his work. The employee allegedly told the agency that it was an entertainment website, and refused to disclose the title of the page, the SPLC reports.

“He told management that it was an entertainment website selling videos of concerts and lectures,” the report said. “He called it simply WOH, never saying that WOH stood for War on the Horizon.”

The DHS supervisor said if Kimathi had honestly described the organization, he would have probably been denied permission to run the website.

After the SPLC exposed the website, the Department of Homeland Security placed Kimathi on paid administrative leave. Since news broke about the DHS employee’s involvement in a racist website, the agency has been scrutinized both for employing him and for placing him on paid rather than unpaid leave.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was particularly outraged by the incident, describing it “unflippingbelievable” on her Facebook page.

“His fellow employees say they’re astounded he is employed by the taxpayers,” she wrote. “His side ‘job’ running the ‘War On the Horizon’ website was reportedly approved by supervisors. Really, Fed? Really?”

Kimathi has so far refused to comment to the media.
