DHS employee with hate-filled website now on paid administrative leave

Last week, Glenn shared the story of the Ayo Kimathi (aka the ‘Irritated Genie’), the Department of Homeland Security employee who, in his spare time, runs a website preparing black people for the “unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race.”

The website, “War on the Horizon,” has since been taken down, as Kimathi, an acquisitions officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), enjoys a paid administrative leave. On Saturday, Fox News reported Kimathi was told on Friday that he is being put on paid administrative leave, following a series of news reports highlighting his controversial website.

“The Department of Homeland Security said that an employee who runs a racist website predicting and advocating a race war has been put on administrative leave – paid administrative leave,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Now, why is that? We can't fire this guy? That shows you how out of control this business called the Department of Homeland Security really is.”

In addition to warning of and preparing for the imminent race wars, Kimathi called President Obama a “treasonous mulatto scum‑dweller” on his website and named Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg, and Condoleeza Rice as “enemies” to the movement.

“We have the NSA and the IRS targeting you, but nobody is looking at the Department of Homeland Security people? This guy is buying all of the weapons, all of the bullets,” Glenn said. “On his website, it says, ‘In order for black people to survive in the 21st Century, we're going to have to kill a lot of whites, more than our Christian hearts can count.’ I don't know if that sounds like a Christian. His website criticized whites, gays and those of mixed race. He calls the President – what is it? Mulatto scum? This guy is a very bad guy.”

Prior to his administrative leave, Kimathi’s actions at work were so bizarre, his former supervisor told the Southern Poverty Law Center, “Everybody in the office is afraid of him. This guy is filled with hate.”

“Now, as astounded as you might be that he is even employed by our federal government, the government has just put him on paid administrative leave,” Glenn said. “Apparently having him on video saying horrific things, having your co-workers say, ‘We're afraid he's going to come in and shoot some of us,’ having him say what he says about the President, and that he hates gays, hates white people, and hates those of mixed race – HATES – and you're going to kill a lot of people – apparently that's just not enough to get you fired nowadays from the government of the United States of America.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
