Faith Linthicum Fired -Deserved It

$6,071 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 258 people in 16 months

Faith Linthicum says she was recently fired from her job as a nurse at Kaiser Permanente where she WAS a nurse in labor and delivery.  Fired because of her hateful comments  made on social media about the death of  Stephon Clark as well as other racial posts.  GOOD!!  What did she say? 

“Yeah but he was running from the police jumping over fences and breaking in peoples house…why run??!!! He deserved it for being stupid,” she wrote.  After other comments she made surfaced showing her racist side, she was fired.

She WAS a nurse.  Where is the compassion she is supposed to have for others? Look online.  Do your research.  She said on social media "Can we protest the deaths of all the people shot by black people too?" Another post read: “He’ll (sic) yeah!!! Build that wall Mr. President!! #prototypeshopping.”

Mr. Clark was shot 8 times...in the side and back.  Read his story here:   https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/30/us/stephon-clark-independent-autopsy.html 

Fox News wrote about this for you conservatives out there, so it
must be true.   http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/04/03/california-nurse-claims-hospital-fired-her-over-stephon-clark-comment.html

Please consider donating to a charity like the SPLC who fights hate instead of spreading it. I wouldn't feel comfortable with this lady treating anyone because of her beliefs.  If she doesn't like the color of your skin, or anything else about you, will she let you or your baby die because you or they "deserve it?" She's already raised her donation level from $3500 to $25,000 because of the coverage from FOX News. 

I am truly saddened to report she's made her goal of over $25,000 and had the balls to raise her limit to $50,000 now.  She will be living off more money from a week of donations than THOUSANDS of Americans will make in a year.  Please help stop spreading the hate!

This will be my final update for this particular campaign. Please, by all means continue to donate here or directly to the SPLC in the future.

I'm thrilled beyond measure to shed some positive light on the beliefs of those in public service . It is completely your right to believe whatever you want to, but be prepared for consequences (such as being fired) should you decide to take those beliefs public. When they reflect badly on someone else or the company you work for, they have their right to protect and defend themselves from you.

To those who disagree, ask yourself, would you want a nurse who thought you "deserved it" treating you? It doesn't matter why. It just matters that she is in a profession to help any and all in need, regardless of her personal beliefs.

If one can't bring themselves to hold their hatred in check and do the job they signed up for in a professional, compassionate manner, they need to choose another line of work.

And as for the hate mail sent to me personally - thank you. At least you read my posts and got involved somehow. Post your thoughts publicly! This is America. Hate is allowed. It does not have to be tolerated though.

Good bye Faith Linthicum. May you find that compassion you so desperately need one day - and preferably before you get another nursing job. And thank you once again for giving me another reason to help a worthy charity, and not myself.

I'm saddened you didn't donate your extra funds from your initial $3500 goal to a charity that advocates for your beliefs. You keep that money sweetie. May your Higher Power grant you a bit more compassion with every dollar you spend.

She wants more??? First she asked for $3500 to help her with rent and dog food and her car payment and insurance. Then, after FOX News helped spread her story, her contributions skyrocketed and she raised her asking level to $25,000.

She made that. She's made, as of today, over $28,000 off her hateful speech by telling the world Stephon Clark "deserved it." And now she's asking for more -$50,000 to be exact.

Don't let hate in. Don't let hate win.

So I received my second little bit of hate mail just now. This one, full of irony, calls the Southern Poverty Law Center a "racist terrorist organization," and goes on to say "It's disgusting that you would support them by stirring up hatred toward a patriotic American."

I'm so thrilled to see my campaign is being noticed and responded to in such a way! It means people are talking and that, to me, means the world. Talking leads to questions, which leads to information and education.
Please help educate those around you about the SPLC and how they promote tolerance instead of hate.

Thank y'all for such amazing support!

This morning I woke up to a not-so-pleasant message in my email. Here's what it said:

"Such a sad state that someone can't actually have their 1st amendment rights anymore in this country. So disgusting that you are raising money to argue against someone else's rights. If this is what this organization stands for - I want nothing to do with it!"

My reply?

"When a nurse publicly stated someone deserved to be shot, she was well within her first amendment rights- but that doesn't mean her private employer, who could possibly be hurt by her statements, wasn't within their rights also to protect their interests. The first amendment gives you protection from being arrested, not freedom from the consequences or public repercussions of what you say.
By setting up this campaign to support an organization that fights hateful speech and promotes tolerance, I'm well within my first amendment rights too. You may not agree with what I am doing, but at least you noticed it and responded to it. And for that, I thank you."

I realize not everyone appreciates what I am doing, and that's ok. That's why I'm doing this. To help remind people there is more than one viewpoint out there and what you say can and does often hurt people in a way you don't fully understand.

I hope losing her job is the worst experience she ever has to deal with, because in my opinion, losing a father, son, grandson, lover, brother, friend is so much worse. And then to be mocked for it and say he deserved it? Shame on her.
