Sadly, racial attacks are all too common lately especially since Mr. Trump was elected. Trump’s hateful rhetoric has created a dangerous climate in the country where people are not afraid to blatantly show their racism or anti-Semitism.
According to CNN:
‘Alex McNabb, a part-time EMT in Patrick County, Virginia, made the statements on a white supremacist podcast called “The Daily Shoah.” McNabb is a frequent co-host of the podcast, whose title mocks the Holocaust.’
The 35 year-old denied the comments on Twitter, claiming they are a “work of fiction.”
‘Using an alter-ego named “Dr. Narcan” on the podcast McNabb repeatedly called black people “dindus,” a slur combining the words “didn’t” and “do” — a reference to black people who claim they are mistreated by the justice system.’
In a podcast from October 4, 2016, McNabb told of an emergency call to a black apartment complex which he referred to as “Ebola Alley.” Then, under the guise of “Dr. Narcan,” he goes a step further in referring to a black woman as a “dinduisha” and calling her a shaved “Harambe,” the name of a famous gorilla.
Lock Boyce, the board of supervisors’ chairman of Patrick County said:
‘This individual should never be involved in patient care at any level. Not as a physician, a nurse, an EMT. Not anywhere.’
According to CNN:
‘Virginia’s Department of Health has opened a formal investigation into McNabb’s conduct after receiving a complaint late last month, a spokesperson said.‘An attorney for McNabb’s employer, JEB Stuart Volunteer Rescue Squad, told CNN that McNabb was placed on unpaid leave Monday night, two days after news reports of his comments surfaced.’
‘I’ve cautioned against firing him outright yet because we don’t want to be sued for wrongful termination.’
‘The case is testing the longtime protection for extremists whose words may be racist and offensive, but who are still shielded by free speech laws. In this case, McNabb’s occupation is front and center.’
‘He is making life-or-death medical decisions for residents of a variety of ethnicities, many of which do not fit his criteria for a white ethno-state. Whether drawn from his experiences as an EMT or fiction, (McNabb’s statements) are tremendous cause for concern.’
‘So, guess who volunteered to take (his) blood? Dr. Narcan enjoyed great, immense satisfaction as he terrorized this youngster with a needle and stabbed him thusly in the arm with a large-gauge IV catheter.’
