A black-nationalist Homeland Security employee who was placed on leave nearly four months ago for running a website that espouses the mass murder of whites has yet to be axed, says Alex Seitz-Wald, a political reporter for The National Journal.
"This isn't wishy-washy. There's no gray area here. It's very clear what he's saying and it's pretty obvious that he should be fired. I don't think anyone disagrees with that," Seitz-Wald told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"I don't think even the Department of Homeland Security disagrees with that. The problem is their hands are a little bit tied here by these kind of absurd laws that make it so hard have him fired."
In August, the Southern Poverty Law Center revealed that Ayo Kimathi, using the online name "the Irritated Genie," called for "ethnic cleansing" of "black-skinned Uncle Tom race traitors" on his website.
"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 reportedly wrote.
DHS deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen confirmed to Seitz-Wald this week that Kimathi's status has not changed and that he is still on leave pending review.
"He's basically at home, collecting a paycheck 'under review,' whatever that means," Seitz-Wald said.
"This guy is getting paid as they go through the hoops of trying to get rid of him."
