Ayo Kimathi, the De­part­ment of Home­land Se­cur­ity em­ploy­ee who had an al­ter ego as a mil­it­ant black su­prem­acist, has fi­nally left the agency, months after his rad­ic­al moon­light­ing was outed.

In Novem­ber, we re­por­ted that DHS still hadn’t fired Kimathi, four months after his web­site es­pous­ing the “eth­nic cleans­ing” of whites and “black-skinned Uncle Tom race trait­ors” had come to light. In Au­gust, he was placed on paid leave, pending ad­min­is­trat­ive re­view.

But Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, DHS deputy press sec­ret­ary Gil­lian Christensen con­firmed to Na­tion­al Journ­al that Kimathi, a pro­cure­ment spe­cial­ist for Im­mig­ra­tion and Cus­toms En­force­ment, has left the agency. “Mr. Kimathi is no longer an ICE em­ploy­ee. His last day with the agency was Decem­ber 6,” she said. She could not, however, cla­ri­fy wheth­er he resigned or was form­ally ter­min­ated, cit­ing gov­ern­ment-wide em­ploy­ment pri­vacy policies. 

Kimathi, go­ing by the nom de guerre “the Ir­rit­ated Genie,” ran a web­site called “War on the Ho­ri­zon” and gave lec­tures preach­ing that blacks had to rise up in a massive war between the races. “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,” he wrote in one such post.

Civil-ser­vice laws make it ex­ceed­ingly dif­fi­cult for the gov­ern­ment to fire em­ploy­ees, even in cases like this, but many ob­serv­ers ex­pressed out­rage that Kimathi was still cash­ing a gov­ern­ment paycheck while his case was un­der re­view.

“This is wel­come but long over­due news,” said Josh Glasstet­ter of the South­ern Poverty Law Cen­ter, the anti-hate group that first outed Kimathi. “DHS had known for months about Kimathi’s pro­mo­tion of vi­ol­ence. Some of his cowork­ers re­portedly feared for their own safety. Re­gret­tably, DHS only took ac­tion after we pub­li­cized his activ­it­ies.”
