Northrop Grumman is under fire because it continues to employ white supremacist Michael Miselis, who beat a black counter-protester during the deadly Charlottesville attacks last year. Miselis still has his security clearance. Let that sink in.
PBS reports, “There likely isn’t such a thing as a “typical” violent white extremist in America in 2018. Still, Michael Miselis — a University of California, Los Angeles doctoral student with a U.S. government security clearance to work on sensitive research for a prominent defense contractor — makes for a pretty unusual case.”
Let’s not stop with Northrop Grumman. UCLA should also take action against this vile racist piece of sh*t.
We do not tolerate hatred or illegal conduct and we condemn racist activities in any shape or form.
We are taking immediate action to look into the very serious issues raised by these reports.

Reaction on Twitter:
Michael Miselis is a 29-year-old PhD student at UCLA with security clearance to work at Northrop Grumman. He’s also a white supremacist who threw a black protester to the ground in Charlottesville and repeatedly pounded him with taped fists. Why is he still at UCLA and Northrop? pic.twitter.com/kJJbCNlFqm

White supremacist Michael Miselis brutally beat a black protester at Charlotteville’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally. He still has a job and federal security clearance with defense contractor, Northrop Grumman.

We know this racist threw to the ground & punched a black man at the Charlottesville riot, was captured on video, has been ID'd as Michael Miselis, a UCLA PhD student, works for Northrop Grumman & has a security clearance. Why hasn't he been arrested? Two words: #whiteprivilege

I feel reasonably confident that Northrop Grumman found out about this guy the same way Twitter did: he started trending. To use liberal logic, this guy is no more a representative of Northrop Grumman than Peter Strzok represents the entire FBI.

Asking Northrop Grumman to kick out fascists is asking them to shut down entirely, which would be great, but I'd like to see UCLA take action too.
