Nurse Fired For Saying Stephon Clark Deserved Death Scores $20K in Own GoFundMe Campaign

*The California nurse who was fired after saying Stephon Clark deserved to be killed by police has raised more than $20,000 from a GoFundMe campaign that she set up to pay her bills.

Faith Linthicum was fired from Kaiser Permanente after she posted a comment on Facebook about the March 18 Sacramento police killing of Clark, 22, who was unarmed when two cops mistook his cellphone for a gun and shot him multiple times in his grandparents’ backyard.

“Yeah but he was running from the police jumping over fences and breaking in peoples houses … why run??!!! He deserved it for being stupid,” Linthicum wrote on Facebook, according to the Sacramento Bee.

Kaiser Permanente called Linthicum’s post a “serious matter” and confirmed she no longer worked for the company. “Kaiser Permanente does not tolerate hate or discrimination … We are deeply saddened by the events associated with Stephon Clark’s death, and will continue to do our part to make sure the community is healthy, safe and inclusive,” an executive told the Sacramento Bee in a statement.

Linthicum said that she’s “not a hateful or discriminatory person” and that she was fired from her hospital job “without any investigation, and without giving me an opportunity to explain or defend myself.”

“I believe Kaiser Permanente violated my First Amendment right to free speech in order to protect themselves from the wrath of these activists,” she claimed.

“I’m a United States Military veteran who served as a medic, and then fulfilled my dream taking care of people by becoming a nurse. I was recently fired from my job as a nurse at Kaiser Permanente for exercising my First Amendment right to free speech. I am a proud supporter of this great Country, the First Amendment, the rule of law, and law enforcement.”

Linthicum says money she raises in her GoFundMe will “pay rent, buy food for myself and my two dogs (French Bulldog & Great Dane), or make my car payments/insurance.”

An anonymous person on Tuesday created a GoFundMe page to counter Linthicum’s, titled: “Faith Linthicum Fired – Deserved It.” It seeks to raise $25,000, with the proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit specializing in civil rights litigation and tracking of hate groups.

That fund, which by Thursday morning had raised over $4,000, features a statement that reads: “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 die because you deserve it? She’s already raised her donation level from $3500 to $25,000 because of the coverage from FOX News. Please help stop spreading the hate!”

  1. “Faith Linthicum Fired – Deserved It.” It seeks to raise $25,000, with the proceeds going to the Southern Poverty Law Center…”

    The Southern Poverty Law Center’s online tax return shows that the company received $136 million dollars in tax-free donations in 2017, up from $50 million the year before.

    The IRS Form 990 also shows that the SPLC now has more than $477 million dollars in cash on hand, 98% of which is classified as “unrestricted” in use.

    In short, the SPLC doesn’t need the money at the moment. Your local food bank, women’s shelter, free medical clinic, even your local SPCA could do so much more with your gift.

    Giving more money to a private advocacy group with nearly half a BILLION in cash on hand really amounts to little more than empty virtue-signaling.

    Give locally, where the need is greater and where you can see the results firsthand
