Update: Virginia Flagger Favorite Matthew Heimbach Loses His Job

MH Fired

My thanks to a frequent reader who forwarded this image.

Don’t worry, Mr. Heimbach. I’m sure Tripp Lewis still thinks you are a “good guy.” Have you thought of consulting with him about raising a “legal defense fund”? How about threatening to sue people you never do sue … he’s good at that. And as for DCS … remember this?

Perhaps that’s why Susan Hathaway is so skeered to flag at the VMFA these days. It’s much easier to accept awards than to do the work.

    How did that bigot get a job with child services?

    Why would Indiana hire this guy to begin with.

    Brooke, Heimbach lost his job well before the Trump rally. He was fired in the middle of Febuary due to violent and racist statements he made during his training. It had nothing to do with the Trump rally.

    If you look at the timeline you can see this story broke days before the KY Trump rally which happened on March 1, 2016.

    The one thing his actions will do to him in terms of his employment situation is that he now probably can’t file the appeal he was planning on to try to get the job back.

    I understand people get excited, but this post is inaccurate.

      I think the inference of the image may be off, but I said nothing about cause and effect. I simply noted he had been fired. Clearly that’s gotten some attention in light of subsequent events that have revived his status as a public figure.

        I think the real reason behind his firing, which happened on January 28th to be exact, is also important to look at.
        He was fired because of racist, violent and inappropriate comments he had made during his training period at DCS.
        Putting this beside his violent actions at the Trump really gives us an accurate look at who Heimbach really is.
        Putting his violent action at the Trump rally as the reason for his firing and covering up the real reason why he got fired almost erases that horrible experience he caused at the DCS and waters down the whole picture.

          Always good to know the details. Waiting for the usual Chastain defense.

          “He was fired because of racist, violent and inappropriate comments he had made during his training period at DCS.” Do you have a source for that? Per the SPLC he made a statement during training that “Suggested violence against a client” in response to a question. Its hard to know what that even means.

    Why would he seek a job where he would work with the public – people of all races? What was in his mind?

    I’m of the opinion that he applied for that job full, well knowing (and hoping) that he would be canned. Why? Two reasons. Firstly, he would get his headline. Secondly, knowing they’d can him, he likely figured he could file a civil suit. Heimbach pushes the envelope because he thinks it’s going to get him street cred with his Nazi buddies.

      There was definitely the Heimbach manipulation scheme in there. His arrogance in assuming nobody can see through his phony BS is hilarious.

      I think because, aside from Parrott, he surrounds himself with the gullible and clueless who are all looking for a cult of personality to follow.

    The guy got what he deserved.
