AG’s Publicist Fired After Supremacist Rant

     (CN) — A spokeswoman for West Virginia’s attorney general was fired after a racist YouTube video surfaced showing her spouting white supremacist slogans.
     Carrie Bowe was hired by Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrissey last year, and worked as an assistant communications director with his office until Thursday.
     He was fired just hours after the Charleston Gazette-Mail newspaper published an article on the video, which was entitled “Stop White Genocide.”
     The 6-minute video, which was recorded in 2012, featured a several white women espousing supremacist views.
     “If I tell you the ongoing truth about genocide against my race, the white race, liberals and ‘respectable conservatives’ agree that I’m a Nazi that wants to kill six million Jews,” Bowe said in the video.
     “Everybody says the final solution to this race problem is for every white country, and only white countries, to assimilate, i.e. intermarry with all those non-whites,” she continues.
     The video cuts to another, unidentified woman posing the follow-up question: “How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a race problem, I’m talking about the final solution to the black problem?”
     Bowe posted an apology on her Facebook page, according to The New York Daily News. The social media page has since been taken down or disabled.
     Bowe also released a statement to West Virginia Public Broadcasting on Thursday detailing her regret and attempted to explain her choice to appear in the video.
     “I’m embarrassed and heartbroken over the video. Embarrassed that I didn’t do proper research and questioning over the video’s true intent and the finished product reflected a system of beliefs in which I, in no way, condone or believe,” Bowe said in her statement.
     Bowe said her participation in the supremacist propaganda piece as something of a matter of circumstance.
     “When the video was originally shot, I was doing a lot of freelance modeling work for friends and local artists,” Bowe’s statement said. “The person who shot this asked me to be in the video because of my looks, quite frankly.”
     Though Bowe denied knowing the producer or director well, she admitted in her statement that she “felt like [she] knew him enough” and believed that “the video’s purpose was aimed at further discussion on race relations from a white perspective.”
     Some of Bowe’s comments in the video were directly lifted from Bob Whitaker, a known white supremacist who also ran for president this year on the American Freedom Party ticket.
     Whitaker is credited for the phrase, “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white;” Bowe expressed the sentiment verbatim in the video as well.
     “Ignorance is the only way to describe my repeating liens that had historical reference of which I didn’t understand or didn’t even know,” Bowe said. “The fact remains, however, that my participation in this video highlights how latent and deep rooted racisms can be to where we don’t even understand how offensive and hurtful our behavior can be.”
     The YouTube video has been viewed 455,000 times. It is divided into four parts, but each portion revolves around a common theme, namely the alleged “flooding [of] virtually every white country with oceans of non-Whites, forcing to assimilate, subjecting them to constant anti-White propaganda and agitprop and ensuring that those who object are fired (in America) and/or incarcerated (in Europe) is genocide, per international law.”
     After another unidentified woman in the video presents a theory on how to solve the “black problem,” and makes the suggestion that a solution could be found for supremacist sympathizers “if millions of non-blacks were brought into every black country and only black countries.”
     Bowe then immediately asks a nonsensical question to support the theory.
     “And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this … and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?” Bowe asks.
     The Attorney General’s office released a statement to the press on Thursday confirming that Bowe was “no longer a member of this office.” “The employee’s conduct and statements, which occurred years before being employed by the Attorney General’s office were not previously disclosed until today, which is contrary to the transparency requirements for being a member of this office, do not reflect the opinion or perspective of the Attorney General or this office,” the statement said.
