VIRAL VIDEO: Pennsylvania Man Fired After Lobbing N-Word At Anti-Fracking Protesters

Unsurprisingly, the YouTube comments are full of Trump fans praising the man. Via Raw Story:

A Pennsylvania man who was caught on video harassing and shouting racial epithets at activists was reportedly fired this week. In a video posted to YouTube on Monday by photojournalist Tom Jefferson, a man wearing work clothes and a camouflage hat is seen approaching anti-fracking activists who are protesting Rex Energy’s drilling operation in the Mars Area School District.

“Have you actually done something with your life, have you had any kind of a job?” the man asks one of the older activists, who laughs in his face. “Just like this chimp right here,” the man continues, motioning at the camera. “What did you say?” one of the activists asks. “Yeah, chimp,” the man replies. “A f*cking n****r right here with a mop on his head. I don’t give a f*ck. He’s milking my f*cking tax dollars.” “We’re peaceful, we do not need your antagonism,” one of the protesters says.

The man’s now-former employer, MMC Land Management, posted this message on their Facebook page:

Today, we were disgusted to learn that one of MMC’s former employees used racial slurs and made racially charged comments during a peaceful protest in Mars, Pennsylvania, outside of work hours at a location with which we have no affiliation. We are sorry that this incident occurred. Whether at work or not, we do not condone hate speech – EVER. Inclusion and diversity are among MMC’s core values. We believe in equality for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender identity, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. MMC has terminated this employee and will never do business with him again in the future.

  • Gustav2

    I’m surprised he didn’t call them “Muslims,” If you (s)troll over to Breitbart, WND, etc. Muslim is the new n-word.

    • SpaceManAndy

      Yeah, the rest of the media doesn’t help that with headiness like “So and so accused of being Muslim.” WTF is that? That’s like accusing someone of being Asian. The word “accuse” is totally inappropriate.

      • Todd20036

        No, it’s more like being accused of being Jewish, Buddhist, atheist…

        Muslim is a religion, Asian is a race.

        Just saying….

        • SpaceManAndy

          It’s still just a feature about a person that is neither good nor bad. It just is.

    • Todd20036

      So is “thug”

    • Michael Rush

      All the frustration at not being able to use the N-word has gone to the Muslims , the gays , the ” libtards ” .They can’t use the word anymore and it’s killing them .

  • SpaceManAndy

    I hate it when I look at a picture and think “Oh, that guy’s cute” and then read the headline and find out it’s a racist/murderer/rapist/other human trash.

    • Gustav2

      Hey, if you want to meet some cute guys like in the picture, I’ll take you to my in-laws to watch football tomorrow in rural Ohio.

      • SpaceManAndy

        Um, yes please.

        • Gustav2

          After a few beers, they all sound like him too…especially after I leave the room.

          • SpaceManAndy

            Oh, then at that point you and I can just hang out.

          • Gustav2

            The hubby will be there and his 5 brothers, though they are racists homophobic assholes, would beat your ass protecting our relationship. You see, they love us.

          • Todd20036

            And I thought my family was bad.
            At least I have a twin who accepts me, and a mother who’s ass I was successfully able to kick to my side.
            May be time to reconsider your family reunions.

          • Gustav2

            Since we have been together for 30 years, they are good to us and the next generation doesn’t really remember a time when we were not together.

            The husband and I are OK, the rest of you are [email protected]

          • Todd20036

            Even so, I wouldn’t show any affection with your husband in front of them, or they might change their tune about not attacking you.

          • Gustav2

            We are very safe with them. We have had our own bedroom in their parents’ house since 1985 while we were going up to the farmette every other week. But now both the hubby’s parents are dead, we rarely see them. We are on the phone and internet with them many times a week.

          • Octavio

            Siegfried and Roy used to say their tigers. were safe. I worry for you Gustave. Be safe.

          • Gustav2

            OMG We are safe, now at the local bar when they forget who I am related to…

            You guys don’t worry.

          • ColdCountry

            Good for you two for hanging with them! This is how the world is changed. (The next generation sounds as though it is already miles ahead.) A lot of times – I wish it was every time – family ties beat homophobia, even if it’s just for one or two people, it still dies a little.

          • Gustav2

            Let me explain a little trick I used on them. Whenever there was a wedding or a funeral I would offer to polish their kids’ shoes or really clean up their tennis shoes…that is something they don’t think of at the time and really appreciate for decades.

          • ColdCountry

            That is awesome.

          • SpaceManAndy

            I don’t think hanging out would endanger your relationship such that it would need protection in the form of beating my ass.

          • Gustav2

            The brothers are very protective of their siblings’ relationships. Even ours. You would be fine, but they would chaperone us from a distance and ask questions.

          • SpaceManAndy

            If I intended to wreck your marriage?

          • Gustav2

            Yup!

          • SpaceManAndy

            What a weird question.

          • Gustav2

            Nothing that direct. You are an outsider, you must be up to no good until proven otherwise. The clan is all.

            (no “K”)

          • SpaceManAndy

            To be fair, I am usually up to not good, but not the home wrecking variety no goodness.

          • Gustav2

            Eventually, you would fit right in. Eventually. lol

          • SpaceManAndy

            Probably not, with my black fiance.

          • Gustav2

            That would be a deal breaker. They just can’t get over that. They are white flight from the mean streets of suburban Columbus Ohio, LOL How the hubby came from them I just don’t know

          • SpaceManAndy

            I’m sorry to hear that.

          • Gustav2

            The sad thing is, they have never had a bad experience with someone of another race or religion that they will talk about. Even in the service, Army, the Corps or Air Force.

            You’ve got to be taught
            To hate and fear,
            You’ve got to be taught
            From year to year,
            It’s got to be drummed
            In your dear little ear
            You’ve got to be carefully taught.

          • SpaceManAndy

            It’s really very sad. I wouldn’t be able to spend time with them.

          • Gustav2

            It is less and less since the hubby’s parents died.

        • Chucktech

          “Hey, whatchoo lookin’ at, faggot?”

      • Silver Badger

        And never really have.

    • Reality.Bites

      Not my sentiments but what they’ll say: It’s freedom of speech, it’s my constitutional right.

      And so it is. Working at MMC Land Management though? Not a constitutional right.

      I’m a bit curious though – “MMC has terminated this employee and will never do business with him again in the future.” Was he an employee or a contractor?

      • Gustav2

        Aren’t they all independent contractors who ‘work’ for these companies now? MMC and the others are like Uber, but with subcontractors to the subcontractors.

  • Michael Rush

    This is what happens when you get good old fashioned Americans to actually speak their minds , usually they just sit back and talk about what great Americans they are with each other and point their fingers at anyone who isn’t like them .

    • Dramphooey

      He’s so stupid he’s blaming protestors for (I am assuming) a slowdown in his work. A lot of derricks are now dark and the roads aren’t clogged with water trucks. It’s because the price of gas dropped but this racist fool actually blames a few grannies sitting on lawn chairs. And don’t forget that liberals just don’t understand economics.

      • leastyebejudged

        Don’t worry, this isn’t going to last.

        And when it ends it’s going to end spectacularly.

    • Itsatarp

      Going by what other bloggers have been able to find in his social media accounts, it does not appear he pays much in taxes if at all as he is frequently out of work or underemployed.

    • Reality.Bites

      Former as in as of a couple of days ago. He was working for them when he was caught on video.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Ok, kinda confusing to my early morning brain. He is probably an NRA member and should be watched for a while. That boy has issues.

    • DaddyRay

      There are not many new employers in his future

      • Silver Badger

        Don’t be too sure about that. With the publicity, he’s received the job offers could be pouring in.

        • Octavio

          I hear the American Family Association is looking for new people. He’s certainly got the vocabulary down.

          • edrex

            Maybe he could knock up a Palin.

          • sherman

            He better hurry. It’s already been a week since Bristol popped out her last one. She’s not going to remain unpregnant forever.

          • Reality.Bites

            That’s hardly steady work. More of a one-shot gig.

          • edrex

            Yeah, less than minimum wage, and nobody tips.

          • MDB

            Maybe Brian Brown could use a reliable “office-assistant.” ??

    • Michael Rush

      He got a job with the Trump organization that quickly ?

  • Neely OHara

    “Disgruntled” now, he returns to his former place of work with his assault rifle in 5… 4… 3….

        If that is so things have gotten really bad and I’m afraid they have.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Or ram his vehicle into a group of peaceful protesters.

    • Macbill

      All the while on unemployment insurance, as he screams about welfare.

      • Bj Lincoln

        He can’t get unemployment because they had a reason to fire him. He is screwed. Goody!

    Welcome to the New Word Order of Trumpism: Racism is back in fashion!

    • DaddyRay

      They don’t even try to hide it anymore

    • Todd20036

      Actually, I think of this as a silver lining. For a long while, the GOP was racist but used code words to cover up some of their racist policies (welfare queen, undocumented immigrants, “innocent” victims of AIDS), but now, Trump forced it all out in the open. No one on the GOP side can deny the blatant racism that is now Trump, and moreover, Trump’s opponents are trying to be more like Trump, not less. At least, the opponents who are still surviving in the race with poll numbers greater than 5%.

      • Dave B

        You forgot “Thug” The most popular code word used today.

        It just makes me wonder what the GOP candidates for 2020 President will be like.

    I saw this on reddit a few days ago, was tempted to post it as an example of what I believe the Trump base to consist of, but since he never invoked the T word, opted not to. Though it truly is what I believe his base is.

    For all of his self proclaimed values, he didn’t have any concern about talking like a drunken sailor in front of a child.

      You gotta love the internet when it comes to things like this.

      That dirt bag would still have a job if there was no internet. Just like the internet is destroying religion, it will destroy racism and bigotry. (Even while there are places online where it can flourish, it will never be welcome in the mainstream).

        Personally, I can’t wait for it to finish off religion.

      • Barrison Hughes

        It’s not actually destroying religion. Is it pitting annoying atheists against equally annoying followers of ? Yes. Big whoop. Religion’s not going to go anywhere, though. Just like cancer. Hooray.

  • Toasterlad

    If I can thank the Republican party for one thing, it’s for consolidating the evil in this country.More and more, if you find out someone’s, say, pro-fracking, it’s safe to assume they’re also anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-black, anti-immigrant, and just plain terrible. It was nice of the GOP to provide a central clearing house for all the hate, greed, and ignorance in this country. Makes it much easier to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

    • CottonBlimp

      I don’t want to have a black and white view of the world, but it’s hard not to when the GOP positioned themselves as the party for stupid people.

  • Dramphooey

    A forty minute drive from me! What’s he so angry about? Nobody is going to stop fracking in the Commonwealth when everybody around here has dollar signs in their eyes.

  • seems like trump’s minions are not as immune as trump. . . .

    • Lakeview Bob

      This is a good point Andrea. Trump is enabling people like him. There is nothing wrong with “political correctness” but Trump doesn’t think so and he is dragging down the country with him.

      That’s a great observation. Unfortunately, when they experience the consequences of talking trash, they are likely to blame everyone but themselves, buy a gun, and take out their anger on innocents. 🙁 After all, it’s the libtards and their PC talking points that are oppressing them. 🙁

      Does youtube ever ban people for racist comments? Some really ugly people there.

      They are the company that is Fracking next door to a school – which is why the protestors were there.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        They’d frack right inside the school cafeteria if they could. Almost no regulation in many states.

        • But they would make the kids wear hard hats, so that’s comforting.

          In PA they aren’t even required to put clean-up funds in escrow; it’s as if we learned NOTHING from watching what coal mining did to this state.

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            Yep: The Centralia mine fire is a coal seam fire that has been burning underneath the borough of Centralia, Pennsylvania, United States since at least May 27, 1962.
            The fire still burns in underground coal mines at depths of up to 300 feet over an eight-mile stretch of 3,700 acres. At its current rate, it could burn for over 250 more years.
            The blaze has resulted in most of the town being abandoned. The population dwindled from 2,761 in 1890 to only 7 in 2013, and most of the buildings have been leveled.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I want to hug and thank the camera man for keeping his cool while filming this ass. He was very professional. I don’t know if I could have been. Love how the whole group refused to get into it with the ass hole. He tried hard to start something. I guess he doesn’t understand what Peaceful means.

    • Exactly, he was pissed because he didn’t get the reaction he wanted. Kudos to those protesters.

    That video was really difficult to watch.
    Does he spit at the camera man around the 2:40 mark?

  • Bob Black

    They always accuse us Liberals of being “elitists”. They think we look down on them. Here’s the truth…I AM better than people like this. I am, it’s just true. I am better than them. They don’t deserve to vote, they don’t deserve to speak or be heard. They are scum who will NEVER make a positive contribution to this country or anywhere in society. Damn that felt good!

    • jmax

      You’re right of course. It’s just not polite to say it out loud 🙂

    • Gianni

      Unfortunately, in your anger, your claim of being “better than them” isn’t demonstrated in your statements that they don’t deserve to vote or to speak or to be heard. These are all guaranteed American rights and, regardless of how low and insulting many like him are, it isn’t an American Value to suggest denying people the rights we have, just because we don’t like their thinking, attitudes, and words. We must be better Americans than that.

      He’s use to all his white buddies agreeing with his view of the world and figure he would be a celebrity (Trump) for speaking up for white is right (aka Republican, Teabaggers, and the usual miscreants). Never even occurred to him that he might be taken to task.

  • O Biscoitinho

    I think the real crime here is that no one had a single good comeback to this guy.

    • TJay229

      Two things :

      1) They were trying to be peaceful
      2) The right people weren’t there.

        Responding would have been “equivalent to trying to negotiate food choices with a hungry bear”.

        • TJay229

          That’s your opinion, but I disagree

    • Jerry Kott

      One of the best response I have read on the internet in responding to this kind of rant is “the more you disturbed sh!t, the more it stinks”. Any insightful response would have gone over his head.

    Despite the title of the video, and predictable shock-value “racist” language has on liberals, there is much more to glean from this man than his poor word choice:

    In the video, we see a man who just finished a hard day’s work, and is upset to see a group of protesters, who, according to what he has been taught, are likely jobless welfare recipients of the state, being funded by his tax dollars as they demonstrate against an activity (fracking) that might leave the man jobless, should they get their way.

    This propagandized notion of “takers,” increasingly imbued through the media and conservative politicians for the past few decades, is further engrained by a lack of critical thinking and absence of a liberal education. In this sense, the man is fulfilling his role to challenge the ills of society according to the conservative doctrine—opposition to any government regulation or force that would negatively affect monied interests of the masters at the very top.

    The ironic thing is that the antagonist here probably earns a wage from a private entity, essentially renting himself in an economic system where the masters continue to reap extraordinary profits at the expense of labor—want to bet he’s not even unionized? With all his holier-than-thou ranting, does he appear to be wallowing in the riches of his hard work?

    Further, while the terms he espouses are “work” and “job,” the implied meanings are “productivity” and “submission.” Some, if not the vast majority of people, are just happier knowing their place in life, never bothering to question authority or challenge the status quo. So we’ll see, our antagonist in the video is the real coward, not the rebels, whose unpaid efforts are to improve the community in which people, like this guy, live.

    It’s unfortunate that the protesters didn’t have someone on staff that could empathize, connect to, and engage in a dialog with the man, who possibly could have been receptive to the right ideas, given that he even asked the question “What do you think you guys are doing, anyways?”

    • James

      I think you credit him with far too much capacity for critical thinking, reason, and logic, and with far too much willingness to even engage in debate. He was there to annoy and threaten some people. That’s all.

    • Gianni

      Trying to make a case for his obnoxious behavior? Engage in a dialog with him? He told the one guy right out that he had not a fucking thing to learn from them. That’s being open to dialog? Boy, you read a lot of “stuff” into this while trying to be understanding and forgiving of a performance that was nothing less than insulting, antagonistic, and totally uncalled for. Sure he has a right to disagree with their stance and could have easily stated that and engaged them in conversation about their differing viewpoints. However, he took the low road and let his crass personality do all the work. I’m sure this is how he handles any situation when confronted with a difference of opinion. Just resort to the childish method of insulting others, baiting them into a fight, and then using that as your excuse to “defend” yourself. Have seen and experienced the attitude many times in my life. Plus the fact that he may have had a hard day on the job and was angry for no real reason does not excuse that kind of behavior toward others, no matter what he thinks about their reasons for being there.

      • Jerry Kott

        In our decades long challenge for Peace of Mind and accountability, we invited our harassing neighboring family to sit down with us with a Trained Mediator 3 different times, we agreed to pay for the whole experience, and they have refuse 3 times to go to meditation.

        This guy is sorry only because he got caught. He doesn’t realize that there are rules to this Game of Life and he isn’t the one who makes the Rules up as we play the game. The last thing these creatures want is a level playing field.

    • leastyebejudged

      Exactly. If anything is going to change, it’s going to start with people like him.

      Not with the people posting here who are already shouting “yay team”.

      Most people are just high on an addiction to outrage, ironic that’s the one thing both sides seem to have in common.

    • Gigi

      This is not a man looking to engage in dialogue. He was looking for a fight and they didn’t fall for it.

  • Happy Dance

    Rucking Fednecks!

  • teeveedub

    It’s very revealing that he says that the cameraperson is “maybe the 10th one I’ve seen in my life, too, and they all look the same to me.” This guy has clearly lived in a bubble, probably surrounded by people who look and act and think (if you can call that “thinking”) the way he does.

    Dude. You gotta get out more.

  • HonkeyWithAJob…justHisType

    WOOF! I’d love to have him frack my rear forty!!!

    • Gianni

      Granted, he’s cute. The brute needs some tender ministrations to ease his troubled spirit.

    • Gigi

      It’ll had to wait until he’s finished his shift at the local glory hole.

  • Justandra

    I noticed he only kept antagonizing the guy behind the camera trying to get him riled up. I’m glad he didn’t take the bait. He just showed how simple and stupid he is. Now he will go on social media and poor mouth for money.

  • charliebkk

    Thanks to the company, whether we agree with their business or not, for axing this piece of shit. At least they have some comprehension of what it means to be a decent human being.

  • Michael

    This is to be expected when you live in a nation which now proclaims that discrimination is a “sincerely held religious belief.”

  • Just Sayin

    There is no place for racism in a peaceful society. I am glad his hateful language was punished by his employer and that he is shunned. Indeed, I wish society would more consistently and vigorously punish hateful racial slurs. If he was a POC and calling a white person a racial slur, he would still be employed and this would celebrated and lauded as speaking truth to power to the cisgender, heterosexual, white male scum patriarchy. What a queer culture we live in. If you ask an academic, they will tell you the definition of racism includes power. Thus, only white people can be racist because only white people have power. Oh, and also *every* white person has power. The fact that this man instantly lost his job shows just how little power outspoken white racists have. On the other hand, those who wield the power to define racism and thus control the discussion are seen as having no power at all. Anyone who points out the contradictions in this narrative is branded a racist troll and shouted down, even if they have done so in a respectful manner and expressed nothing but support for harsh punishment of the use of racial slurs. Funny, huh?

  • noni

    Listen to Joe Pisone’s lame apology.

    He’s sorry and has turned to a “church” for guidance.

    Guess he figures he can pray for forgiveness like so many church people do when they’ve been caught being themselves then pull the Christian card and not be held accountable.

    “He’s milking my f*cking tax dollars.” How exactly, and how the fuck would you know anyway? You don’t even know the guy! Don’t let the door hit your racist ass on the way out, jerk.”

  • Jerry Kott

    I live in Pennsylvania and I find the responses here interesting. My partner and I are very familiar with this mind set. I cut out watching the video early because it made it’s point and it reminds me of the challenges we have had for decades with this mind set- they run the state. This creature is not the norm but they are out there. However they are real cowards , I am surprised he didn’t show a gun or talk about one.
    The look is common. We share a road to our home with a creature who has harassed us for years with impunity-yes we even have bullet holes in our property. This mind set doesn’t just exist on the bottom of the food chain. It has worked it was up the chain. They don’t function in a vacuum. Many believe the local Police in rural areas are troubled souls like this wearing a badge. We have had police elude that we are provoking our cowardly harassers. These creatures can’t accept the reality that 2 Senior Gay men won’t eat out of their hands and kowtow to their perception of where we stand on their food chain and this pisses them off big time.
    I am glad this creature has shot himself in the foot with his ignorance. They can’t get passed the reality, that not everyone one lives in their ignorant shameless Paradise.
    They are out there!

  • TallBearNC

    That’s weird, every time I post it says my post is awaiting approval by a moderator, and it didn’t used to do that before. Is that to stop all the spammers, or the right wing people coming over here and trashing the site?

    • TallBearNC

      Oh I think I know why it’s waiting to be approved, it’s because I listed a bunch of racial slur’s that people use against other races, and I spoke about how people jump up and react to them, but hardly react to the use of the ones for us gay and lesbian people… I bet a list of those words is why my post is awaiting approval

  • goofy_joe

    We can thank people like Trump who go on national television and make people like this think it’s okay to broadcast their ignorance and hate.

  • EqualityForAll

    He can go to church to pray for guidance and forgiveness all he wants, but it won’t help the situation. In this day and age, what with technology the way it is, once you’ve been recorded acting like a fool it becomes immortalized on video and on the Internet for all the world to see. You can’t erase it and you can’t take it back. He’s going to have a tough time getting a decent job for a very long time. For that we can all be thankful.
