‘Douche du Jour’: TSA Agent Roy Egan Fired over Hateful Facebook Rants Against Muslims
A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent in Chicago has been terminated over hateful Facebook rants against Muslims and other minorities.
According to The Raw Story and ABC 7, longtime TSA baggage screener Roy Egan, who worked at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, was fired after authorities discovered racist Facebook rants against Muslims, blacks, hispanics, gays and President Obama.
“Islam is a cult that glorifies death,” he wrote. “Islam is an authoritarian, political doctrine which imposes itself by force. Any political doctrine that calls to kill those who do not believe in it is NOT a religion.” Egan has called for all Muslims to be wiped out and in one post he wrote “you filthy Muslim.”
“Does anything make you smile more than a Muslim burning by his own hateful hand?” he asks.
Egan also had strong words for President Obama, who he refers to as the “Muslim-in-Chief.” First Lady Michelle Obama is a “ghetto snipe.” He says he hopes Attorney General Eric Holder dies tasting his own blood.
Despite this vitriol, Egan says that “I am no way a racist.”
Egan insists that his personal opinions never affected his job performance. “I’ve never done anything against policy that I’m aware of,” he told ABC 7.
Oh, but he has. According to Raw Story, TSA policy requires employees act professionally even while off duty.
Egan is pursuing legal action against his former employer, but he admits that he hasn’t been able to find a lawyer to represent him in his “free speech” battle against the government. Shocking.
