Back in September we published this blog exposing a Sterling paramedic who had called black players on the Patriots “porch monkeys” on Facebook for kneeling during the National Anthem:

She was immediately suspended without pay, and was fired shortly thereafter, no questions ask. This is completely reasonable since as a public servant you are responsible for the things you post publicly on social media. And if you’re a paramedic you can’t be posting racist shit on Facebook. No normal person defended her actions, and she rightfully lost her job.

Black lives matter started riding the turtle as a result of our expose:

So that’s what happens when a white first responder posts something racist on social media. What would happen if the roles were reversed? Turns out this same thing is playing out in Boston, except with a very different outcome…..

Reader Email:

At the Boston Fire House in Hyde Park Captain Darrell Higginbottom, President of the Society of Vulcans (an equal opportunity social justice organization of minority firefighters) ordered the removal of the US Flag on July 4th as a sign of protest. Then later on they lowered the flag to half mast (normally used for death) when one of their members, Firefighter Octavius Rowe, was suspended for hateful speech on social media. At every turn the Vulcans have been anti-Veterans and anti-US in their speeches and stances. An investigation was launched into the rogue decisions on properly flying the US Flag but nothing was done within the department. Further, peeling back the onion as part of their fight against Veterans they have been advocating for legislation to increase the residency requirements to get on the job.  This is fine except some of the members have been fraudulently having language speakers (a separate way to get on) live at their address (on paper only) to get the residency requirements.  The Department is scared of them due to the race card they play. I think there should be a more diverse fire department but using the US Flag on Government Property as a Government employee is not a way to do it!

So obviously this email came from someone who is in the know with the Boston FD. We looked into it and sure as shit it turned out to be true. They did indeed take down the American flag on July 4 at the firehouse engine 48 in Hyde Park. Which is the most insane thing I’ve ever heard. Firehouses are funded by the American taxpayers. They exist in the United States of America. Unless they’re declaring independence then they have no business taking the flag down as a form of protest. Why is the Boston FD allowing this to happen?

What’s even more insane is that they did indeed put it at half staff in October when firefighter Octavius Rowe was suspended. Here’s what he posted on Facebook that got him in trouble:

SourceA veteran Boston firefighter is on administrative leave over what the department calls “disturbing” social media posts. Octavius Rowe, who has been a firefighter in the city for 15 years, was placed on paid administrative leave on Oct. 2. The Boston Fire Department said Tuesday that the content he posted on social media appeared to advocate violence. The department specifically referenced a cartoon showing a man carrying another man’s decapitated head, captioned, “Nat Turner’s Slave Rebellion.” A spokesperson said there were other “disturbing” posts, but did not elaborate.

Nat Turner led a failed slave rebellion in 1831. He killed a bunch of wypipo and for historical purposes his actions were relevant because it completely destroyed the myth that black people were willing participants in the slavery system. Prior to this anti-abolitionists argued that black people would be lost without slavery, because they needed white masters to keep them alive. Of course this was bullshit and Nat Turner’s rage proved that.

At the same time it also did a lot of damage to the abolition movement, because it fed into the false narrative that black people were wild savages who could not be civilized:

The rebellion began when Turner’s small band of hatchet-wielding slaves killed his master, Joseph Travis, along with his wife, nine-year-old son and a hired hand as they slept in their beds. Realizing they had left one family member alive in the house, two slaves returned to the Travis home and killed “a little infant sleeping in a cradle” before dumping its body in the fireplace.

They murdered sleeping infants and nine year old children. That’s not something a public servant like a firefighter should be openly endorsing. Yet here is Octavius Rowe saying, “Praise Nat Turner.” The post is STILL up, and he’s still getting paid NOT to work.

But please, tell me more about this white privilege thing. Because a white Massachusetts State Trooper is currently on unpaid leave due to the fact that he called a career criminal a “scumbag” in an online forum in 2012. A Springfield cop was immediately fired for making light of a protester getting run over by a car in Charlottesville. And a white paramedic in Sterling lost her job because she posted something racist on Facebook. Seems like this privilege isn’t worth very much. Just sayin.

The Society of Vuclans has vociferously had his back throughout this process:

A Boston firefighter who was placed on paid leave after “disturbing” social media posts is being targeted unfairly by the department, an organization of black and Latino firefighters said Wednesday. Darrell Higginbottom, president of the Boston Society of Vulcans of Massachusetts, said that organization is supporting Octavius Rowe as “he contests the Boston Fire Department’s biased claims against his character.”

“He has no ‘violent’ history’ on the Boston Fire Department,” Higginbottom said in a statement. “It is not fair that he is made aware of specific claims against him via the media, rumor, and innuendo.”

“The Boston Fire Department’s process is flawed and Octavius has been targeted unfairly. We stand beside him,” the statement said.

Rowe is listed as the vice president of the Boston Society of Vulcans of Massachusetts, an organization of black and Latino firefighters.

Picture a white firefighter getting in trouble for posting a cartoon of a white guy lynching a black guy, with a caption that said, “Praise (insert white guy’s name here).” They wouldn’t be suspended with pay. They’d be fired. And an organization of exclusively white firefighters (which doesn’t exist because of course that would be racist) of which he was the vice president, certainly would not rush to his defense. They’d distance themselves from him because he would be giving them a bad name.

Not the Vulcans though. They claim he’s been “targeted unfairly” for a disgusting post he made on social media. Ya know, because he has no “violent history.” He himself has never killed anyone. He’s just glorifying and praising those who have.

But it’s far from the only disgusting thing he’s posted on social media.

Check out this video he posted yesterday:

If you didn’t watch the video, here’s some of the anti-semitic highlights that he is endorsing:

So he thinks Jews who fled persecution during the Holocaust to Israel do not belong there because of their “racial ancestry.”

He also believes that Jews control the media and banks:

He believes that Jews controlled the mafia, and pointed out that gangster Meyer Lansky was Jewish while using a picture of gentile Al Capone:

Because I guess all white people look alike? Even the most notorious gangster of all time.

The video also contained stereotypes of Jews, and basically said that they’re as equal a threat as communism:

He shared some lovely quotes that indicated that Jews in Israel are fake Jews who are the “synagogue of Satan”:

And he used Nazi-esque caricatures to portray Jews as scary, evil people (he even has money floating around behind them):

But it’s all good though because he didn’t MAKE the video. He just shared it.


He doesn’t just dislike the Jews though. The people he really hates are the gays. For instance, he was driving through Brockton one time and he saw some gay middle school students holding hands. Naturally he went to Facebook to air his disgust: Gay factories?

What kind of person still thinks like this in 2018?

He also liked comments that said things like “it is completely out of control” (kids being gay):

Once again, if a white public servant was posting shit like this on their Facebook page, they’d be gone by now. It’s almost like those who have the real privilege are those who are members of a minority group.

So he’s started an anti-gay movement called “Save Black Children” AKA the Straight Black Pride Movement:

He shares homophobic stuff pretty much all the time:

He also doesn’t like Didi Delgado and Monica Cannon-Grant. Not because Didi is a racist slab of human jello who forces her cult of woke white women to pay her reparations once a week, but because they promote a gay agenda:

“We never consider ANY queer “leadership” at any point, anyone partnering with these elements will immediately be attached to them as enemies of the Natural Black Family.”

“These uninformed agents of sexuality confusion…cannot have access to our children.”

Holy shitballs. This guy’s basically Hitler with a hose. He even calls them “homophiles.” As in, homosexuals + pedophiles. He believes that gay people are so dangerous that they cannot be around children. That their sexuality automatically makes them “enemies of the Natural Black Family.”

Why is the Vulcans Society standing up for this bigot? This is something they want to be associated with? He’s not just a member, he’s the Vice President!! They flew the flag at half staff to protest the fact that he’s on paid vacation for being a Nazi.

He’s liked comment from friends that refer to gay people involved in black lives matter as a “homo rally”:

He also doesn’t seem to approve of black women conceiving children with white men:

Ya know, because it would disrupt the heterosexual “natural black family” if you let evil white blood enter the gene pool.

He also runs youth programs that basically brainwash impressionable young black kids in Boston to distrust the police, and pushes his homophobic and anti-semitic agenda:

Nevertheless despite being openly bigoted like this he still whines about how he’s had to “answer questions at headquarters” about his violence advocating posts:

Ironically he has shared multiple articles about firefighters in other places being disciplined for posting racist things on social media:

And all the while he is still working for the Vulcans Society to diversify the fire department:

This guy cannot be a firefighter ever again. It’s an absolute disgrace that he has not been fired already. And yes, he still has his job because political correctness makes it much easier to fire racist white guys than it does racist/homophobic/anti-semitic black guys. That’s not even debatable. We’ve seen a pattern of white public servants immediately losing their jobs for similar posts, and rightfully so. Why does he get special protection? Oh right, because the cries of “racism” will come shortly thereafter, and there’s nothing politicians like Marty Walsh fear more than Boston being labeled as a racist city.

Nevertheless, we urge you to tweet at Marty Walsh here and link this article to it. You can also email him at MAYOR@BOSTON.GOV, or call him at 617-635-4500. Ask him why he hasn’t come out publicly and condemned this relic of the past? Why was he so quick to label a group of 20 free speech advocates (led by a brown guy) in the Boston Common gazebo as Nazis? Why was he so quick to condemn the Boston Police for tweeting out support to Red Auerbach for his contributions towards integrating the NBA during black history month? Why was he so vocal and woke for those things, while he is silent when an anti-semitic bigot gets paid to sit on his fat ass at home?

    It might be in a place where the neighbors don’t take too kindly to the racial and anti-semitic bullshit.

    Obviously a racist, hater and bigot. Also, what is his next step, maybe violence. One level leads to another. The cops should keep a eye on him.

    This should be a national news story about a hate crime and calls for firing.
    I think the racist Vulcan society name needs to be changed. No more Vulcan society.

    People calling for this guy to be shitcanned don’t understand the raging clusterfuck that trying to get a unionized state/municipal employee fired becomes. 

    Every trick in the book will be paraded out by his union protectors. Steaming piles of bullshit like First Amendment violations, did he receive proper equal opportunity training, have there been any racially-charged incidents directed towards him, is this discipline retaliation for something, is this discipline happening because he’s a minority, blah blah blah. The fucking list is endless. 

    Bottom line; this guy has a golden ticket, and he’s not going anywhere. Welcome to the Wonderful World of Public Sector Unions.

    How is he different than any other shit-head nazi? He’s not — he’s just continuing to fan the flames of hate and intimidation — albeit sloppily. He really can’t put together a paragraph nor write a clear thought.

    Guys like him turn out to be gay. Not a big deal – who really gives a shit these days? Big O just wants to s some d. Give the man a bone.

    In the meantime, fire that racist pig.

    Its not racist if you’re black, it’s “payback” to innocent ppl who’s ancestors MAY have owned slaves, by ppl who have never been slaves, & never will be. Makes total sense. Unless you’re white. Then you’re definitely racist. Even if you’re not.

    I’m so disgusted with these double standards. It’s ok to be racists against whites. This racists piece of shit should have been fired. This fat pig shouldn’t be allowed to operate a hot dog stand on the side of the road.

    Firefighters are just as bad as the Massachusetts state police. I probably couldn’t count high enough to reach the number of them committing fraud for “injuries” and getting a full paycheck (TAX FREE!) while doing it.

    Allegedly there is a firefighter in western MA that has been collecting his full paycheck for years while working as a travel agent for Disney (he loves posting his numerous trips a year on facebook) and doing odd construction jobs/flipping houses. All the while collecting goodies from the government because his wife doesn’t work and they are “broke”. He’s probably now hooked on pain medicine too

    Civil servants are a joke most times. People forget they are human too and therefore just as corrupt as anyone else.

    Can this man be trusted, with absolute certainty, to save peoples lives regardless of their race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual preference?

    If there is even a shadow of a doubt than he has no place as a public servant.
