A white supremacist who recently came under fire for racist comments he made on The Daily Shoah podcast has been fired from his job as an EMT in southwest Virginia. This is just three months after a report exposed his racist attack. Here is more on this story about how right ultimately triumphs over wrong and how racist comments have no place in our society.
A Meeting Before the Board of Supervisors
A Board of Supervisor’s of Patrick County meeting was scheduled after the board received complaints about racist comments McNabb made on the podcast. During the meeting, the board considered pulling funding for the JEB Stuart Volunteer Rescue Squad for which McNabb worked.
The Meeting Heats Up
During the meeting, McNabb got into a heated exchange with Lock Boyce, the chairman of the Board of Supervisors. And while the board decided not to pull funding from the rescue squad, the damage to McNabb had already been done, leading to the rescue squad terminating his employment.
Initial Suspension and Eventual Termination
Before his termination, McNabb was initially on unpaid leave. During his suspension, the Virginia Department of Health’s Office of Emergency Medical Services found no substantial evidence to support claims that McNabb had violated JEB Rescue Squad regulations regarding discrimination.
Regardless of these findings, JEB Stuart Rescue Squad decided to terminate McNabb’s employment with the company. The company sited fear in the community about the type of care they could expect to receive from an EMT with such racist views.
According to an attorney for the JEB Stuart Volunteer Rescue Squad, “We never wanted a member of our community to think that they might be mistreated or discriminated against.”
The Daily Shoah
Appearing on the Daily Shoah podcast as character Dr. Narcan, McNabb would often go on racist diatribes where he disparaged blacks and often referred to them by racist slurs. He was also often posted racist updates on his social media accounts. One of the incidents referred to in the complaint included a statement he made on The Daily Shoah in regards to one of the patients he attended to.
“As it turned out, this young African-American male was there to get blood drawn, so guess who volunteered to take his blood?” he told his co-hosts. “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.”
An Example of McNabb’s Racist Tweets
On his now suspended Twitter account, McNabb made countless racist tweets. He also attended the white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia which saw one person killed and 19 others injured. It was partly due to such racist vitriol that the JEB Stuart Volunteer Rescue Squad felt it need to take action and set the minds of its customers at ease.
A Video of the Meeting
And while McNabb was fired, racist elements in our society continue to sew division in our communities and among the diverse groups across this country. It is only when we take a stand against such racism that we can begin to make a difference. Here is a video with more on the story.
