Editor’s Note: This woman was NEVER employed by Worcester EMS. Ever.
This is Linda Kimball:
She’s a paramedic who works for the town of Sterling and Vital ambulance in Worcester, has been doing the job for a long time, and is an EMT instructor as well:
And she had some strong feelings about the 17 New England Patriots who elected to take a knee during the National Anthem last weekend:
Just in case it wasn’t clear the first time she used the term “porch monkeys,” she wants to let you know that this was not a typo. She wrote porch monkeys because that’s what she meant. Porch monkeys. Also you are all ignorant and “your” all black. Just in case it wasn’t clear what skin color these particular players were.
And didn’t they get the memo that the Civil War was fought a few hundred years ago? Open a damn history book!!! First came the Civil War back in the late 1600’s, followed by the French and Indian War, the Korean War, Vietnam, World War 2, World War 1, the War of 1812, and finally the American Revolution. This is how history works. Take a lesson from this lady!!
No offense to monkeys!!!
Some of her friends were like, “you probably shouldn’t say that.” But rather than backtrack on her statements she doubled down instead:
Yea those NFL players sure are pitiful, and especially poor. Very poor.
Soon she did an about face and was all, “not all black people”
You know who I really hate? The people who pull the “someone in my family served” card. As if that makes you more patriotic than the person you’re talking to. First of all, you didn’t do shit. Your family member did. Your family’s sacrifices speak volumes? Yes, for themselves. The whole family didn’t do shit. Just the ones who served. All you did was use their sacrifices to win online arguments in order to justify your use of the term “porch monkeys.”
Her husband, a firefighter in Charlton, came to her defense:
Yea, calling black people “porch monkeys” and pointing out that they’re all black is totally NOT playing the race card. Definitely.
Anyway, I don’t think this lady should necessarily be fired or anything like that. Just read her the riot act and let her know how to not embarrass the company and municipalities she works for going forward. Ya know, since she’s paid to treat people of all colors and ethnicities, she should probably understand that repeatedly calling people racial slurs on social media is a bad idea.
