John Pisone Promptly Fired After Racist Rant At Rex Energy Well Site Protest

Daily KOS
A Pennsylvania man identified by Butler News as "John Pisone" (he’s now deleted his Facebook page) took time out of his busy day to stop and harass a group people protesting against fracking in Pennsylvania. 
As the video starts, Pisone is chastising the protesters, questioning if they’ve ever had a job. Only seconds later, he turns to cameraman Tom Jefferson (who is black) and let’s loose a vulgar string of obscenities:

Pisone: This chimp right here (pointing at the camera). 
Unidentified protester: What did you say?
Pisone: Yeah, chimp. This fucking nigger right here with a mop on his head.
Protestors: You better get out of here!
Pisone: I don’t give a fuck. He’s milking my fucking tax dollars. 
Protestors: You better leave! You better get out now!
Pisone: I don’t give a fuck what you have to say.
He repeatedly made monkey noises at the cameraman and continued his racist rant (seen in the video below).
Tom Jefferson uploaded to the video to YouTube and it didn’t take long for outraged internet sleuths to contact his employer, MMC Land Management, who promptly fired John Pisone, releasing the following statement:
MMC Land Management
Today, we were disgusted to learn that one of MMC’s former employees used racial slurs and made racially charged comments during a peaceful protest in Mars, Pennsylvania, outside of work hours at a location with which we have no affiliation. We are sorry that this incident occurred. Whether at work or not, we do not condone hate speech - EVER. Inclusion and diversity are among MMC’s core values. We believe in equality for everyone, regardless of race, age, gender identity, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. MMC has terminated this employee and will never do business with him again in the future.

I do not think you,Jim, needed to print this mans exact words. You should have blanked out the curse words. I have seen this before on here, mostly from commenters, but not such bad language. You say you are a Christian but yet you allow this language on your site. I know people will say free speech, and I'll say this is my free speech. I have had enough so I'll just stay off your blog and that will take care of it for me. Maybe others will tire of it too.

Need to show how ignorant this person really is. Glad he lost his Job. There's no place for that. Protecting his job while they're ruining peoples water and causing earthquakes and ruining peoples quality of life. And MMC he was your employee at the time.

It's the news. Not all news is unicorns and rainbows, 12:12. You should have stopped reading it at the first curse word. Also, you must have watched quite a bit of the video. Because you watched it, does it make you non-christian?

People who say stupid crap exist in the world, news at 11.

Racism is a 2 way street, they exist in all colors and people tend to carry an us and them mentality to all things by nature.

As much as I agree fracking has consequences and I want to agree with the anti-frackers it seems like a case of Not In My Back Yard (NIMBY). Solar is making progress but we still depend on fossil fuels for a lot of grid power today and natural gas + fracking is probably slightly better for the environment than burning coal.

People need to lay office Jim and how he does things. , He tells it like it is and anybody that does know him knows, that he's more of a Christian than most. People in this region so people need to be adults and stay off this page if it offends them! !!

That mentality runs rampant and is sooooo sad that anyone would be so shallow minded and ignorant.

12:12. Get over it! Jim was only putting what was said! If you don't like it, don't read it! Keep up the good work Jim!

I don't agree with the comment above. Jim, is here to give the news. He shouldn't have to bleep or cross out words that were said to make you comfortable. What was said was said. In many other cases I see commenters asking him to not bleep out stuff. I don't see you contributing or paying for his hard work, until then, stay off the blog.

To :Thursday, December 31, 2015 at 12:12:00 AM EST They are just words, grow up put your big boy or girl panties on and deal with it. No one forced you to watch the video. The way he treated those people are much worse then the curse words, you should be more offended by that! Jim, keep reporting the news the way it is, do not ever sugar coat it for those who can not handle the truth.

Why is it that when a white makes a derogatory comment about a black it's racial and an earth shattering event but a black can say just about anything about a white and it's no big deal? Sports celebrities, reverends, tv personalities, actors, congressmen and women and even our president all of whom are black have made derogatory remarks about white people and it's just business as usual. The supposed derogatory term originated from the Niger River region where the first slaves were brought from, captured, sold, transported, and first owned all by blacks. BTW, to my knowledge, nowhere in the bible does it state that use of that four letter word is a sin. The holy book mentions, fornication, fornicators, and "to be with", it does however mention G.D. or D. as a sure ticket to hell because only the Good Lord himself can condemn something.

Reporting the TRUTH should not be offensive to anyone. Regardless of the language used, it's still what the man said so if anyone is offended, then by all means skip the article and/or stay off the blog. As far as this guy getting fired, that seems a little extreme to me. The company should have made him apologize on camera for the racist remarks and maybe a little time on the street would have taught him a lesson. My question is...what about HIS right to free speech and freedom of expression? Whether we agree with him or not, he was not representing his employer and he was on his own time. Even though his remarks were highly offensive, did he not have the right to say them without the severe repercussions of loss of employment? What good is having the right to free speech if you can't exercise that right? Is our Constitution just a piece of paper with words written on it that don't mean anything? This man is now among the ranks of millions with no job and probably he and his family are going to have to start living off the system. This is just what our country needs...another destroyed life. Let's all celebrate that he got what he deserved.

Really ? You are going to quit reading the Blog just because he quoated the whole incident? Just because you are a Christian you can not hide from everyones comments or how they speak. Is everyone going to go up to a person and ask if you are Christian before they speak? NO!!! Kepp up the good work Jim, by letting everyone know what was said Christian or not some like to know.

Anonymous said...

Uh wow 12:12 if you are that easily offended you should probably stay off the internet in its entirety last I checked those are just words and as for the article I do not support the racism however I must say his initial point is a good one quit the protesting and let people work hell why aren't they at work

And 12:12 get over yourself religious beliefs do not choose what words someone can and cannot use

I'm sorry I don"t care for this talk either !!! But in this case it was to prove what real a** wipes there are out there. If you don't want to hear it MUTE it as I did. this is like when two IC girls were raped and the news and papers called them RETARTED it was to get the POINT ACROSS and I feel in both cases it has............... Again for the words yes I am very discussed, and I'm sure his mother is to, I'm sure he uses it in all conversations, and for some reason it always lands right where he wants it. NO I'M defending him.. he is very wrong.

Free speech in this country anymore is a dream. Free speech is reserved for the rich and Politicians. Otherwise this guy should not be fired for it. If this guy was black and calling the protesters "Whitey or Cracker, or Honkey" he would not be in the line light. We have a double standard for Free Speech. Thanks to all the PC morons out there. Rehire this guy, give him a promotion.

Anonymous 12:12 poster.... People like you are exactly what is wrong with this world today. You are way too thin skinned to deal with every day life. This sight is paid for and operated by Jim and I really appreciate the fact that he can post articles such as this totally uncensored. If you can't handle reality, maybe it would be best if you just stay off of the internet. Also, you really shouldn't throw the word Christian into other people faces when it is hypocrites like you that are "judging" others in a very unchristian manner.

Jim, please keep up the good work that you do. I read the articles on Solomons Words daily and really enjoy your site.

Thanks!

Wellll....this was a nice article for my young kids to read. I totally get the purpose of communicating that the man said some really racist trashy comments but to actually print out exactly what was said is not very professional or classy. Why stoop to that man's level? I have considered advertising my business on here but I now have serious reservations about ever advertising on here. Are you going to post nude pictures on here if they ever come up in the news, because...well it's news and it may be what in fact happened??? I don't look at life through rose colored classes but come on posting those comments from that scum bag was in poor taste. The only thing you did by printing that is continue to spread his awful message. Your sites name sake if certainly rolling in his grave.

This is Jim's blog and I believe he is intitled to post whatever he chooses. Just as you are able to choose not to read it. The story was to explain how the incident happened as well as the outcome. Given that his website shows over 179,000 views in the last 7 days, I don't think he is worried that you will stop reading his blog.

Nothing shocks me nor surprises me anymore, some ppl rip that "f" word off in their conversation like we use the word the! Everyone has a choice to read it or not to read it,I chose not to read it as soon as i saw the "f" word n same goes for the video, I chose not watch the video!
I went to the store yesterday n walk by a young lady talking to someone, she has 2 little children standing with her n ripping off the "f" word like nothing, surprised, not one bit!

Is it not racist to have the "Black Congressional Caucus"? "Miss BLACK America"?, NAACP?, UNCF? (United NEGRO College Fund), and on and on. What if John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and others would have the WHITE Politicians Club? Oh My, the s*** would hit the fan. They want it ONE way and ONE way only. The Blacks can say or do what they want with no repercussions. To me, that is furthering racial division with these "clubs". To those who are bad mouthing the Marcellus industry: Do you heat your home with wood harvested with a hand saw? Do you make your own candles out of animal tallow (wax comes from petro. products). Do you ride a horse? Until the wind, solar, hydrogen industry becomes better able to supply our energy needs, petroleum is still here as a bridge fuel. PA has produced oil and oil byproducts for over a century, the drilling and harvesting of oil is nothing new. Is this your "protest du jour"? What will it be next? The cell phone industry employing child labor? Hope you don't own any electronics because you are guilty of child abuse by purchasing these products. Should we protest in front of your trailer?
You the petro. protester and 12:12, Get over it, the world is not perfect. I think overall, most people do a wonderful job in their lives. Remember Rodney King who disobeyed police in LA? He uttered the famous words to try to quell the LA riots. (which BTW were conducted mostly by the black residents in that area). Why can't we all just get along? Happy New Year!! Someone PLEASE find a way to get rid of the embarrassment to our political system named trump! He appeals to those who don't realize the president doesn't just do what he wants, when he wants. There are laws in this country to abide by.

I wonder what they said to him to get such a reply ?As for myself I don't believe a word these so called activist agitators say! Sounds like a miss troutman public herald set up to me !

Rather than fire him, the company should have provided
him with mandatory anger management classes and classes
dealing with getting along with others in this complex
world.

Now we have an unemployed, broke, angry, young man who will
blame everything on this incident. Trouble ahead.

Really 12:12. That's what you're worried about and not the fact that there are people in this world that think that way? You're as concerning as he is.

Ok I've watched this the guy DID NOT drive pass them to leave work... Looks like he pulled off the main road.. So I feel he has deliberty (SP) pulled off the road to do just what he did harass, belittle, and make a total fool of no one but him self. If he would have gone home he would still have his job, wouldn't have made big head lines, and sorry cost himself jobs in the future, yes companies are going to see this and remember it, most do not want a trouble maker, foul mouth guy working for them..... Jim love what you do keep it up thanks

10:44 if that's how you feel then I actually feel pity for you. I also own a business and I'm proud to advertise on this blog. We The People still have "freedom of the Press" and Jim reported the news as it happened, uncensored and unabridged. My hat goes off to Solomons Word and I WILL continue to advertise here, maybe more. In case you haven't noticed, there is nothing "classy" about the news, it's just news, some good and rosey, some not so good, and unfortunately some damn awful news. Jim, keep up the good work.

He was exercising his first amendment rights to free speech. No one arrested him for it. And his employer exercised their right to decide whether or not to employ certain people based on their character. You can exercise all the free speech you want, with the understanding that words and actions have consequences.

Yeah, I doubt that. He got exactly what was coming take them sorry, Karma is a bitch.

12:32 what's your point? You said he was MMC's employee at the time of the confrontation.....no kidding. When they found out happened they fired him. Were they suppose to have a crystal ball to know he was going to do it ahead of time? As for ruining water, what drinking water did MMC ruin? Earthquakes.....you obviously buy in to all the anti-drilling rhetoric about earthquakes. I hope you heat your home with a wood stove and drive an electric car.

i feel very sorry for this guy. he is the results of bad parenting. he gave white men all over America a bad look. the only words he could say is what he was raised with. I have never heard or meet a racist person that drives a ford truck its always a chevy truck. the true terrorist of America looks like him.

First off many of these comments sound like they came from Filthadelphia... I have a great idea whenever these PAID TROUBLE MAKERS come to a drilling site There should be a crew with the drillers that FILM the protesters -their vehicles-cameras-and ALL the other products and byproducts of the GAS/OIL Industry...Then make a BIG stink about it like they do...Have information on ALL the LIES and false info they spew !!! Those paid idiots would NOT last a day on a drilling site those Men work weeks on and 10-12 + hours seven days.. They bust their A$$es and do many dangerous jobs away from their Families the sissy paid[worldwide org.] protesters would NOT last one day...Did you ever think that GOD put the gas/oil there for US and a better way of life ???

Agree with Jillian, what Is wrong with you anonymous? This goes for all who's kids read this site too. Perhaps you are all suffering from ostrich syndrome? A man was abused, humiliated, verbally and thereby emotionally assaulted and your concern is censorship. Were your feelings hurt reading one of the many derogatory words (n*****) that are used in the world every single day? Does reading the ugly truth offend you? Well it f***ing should offend you!!! Instead you criticise the author for saying it as it is? You don't sound the least bit offended by the content, and it's people like you who don't stand up for the real issues that are wrong in the world. Instead you shift the focus to a completely irrelevant detail. Your kids SHOULD read it, they should feel offended and become aware these issues exist. Ostrich syndrome...I question your moral and ethical integrity to sit there "anonymously" and shift the focus from the core issue. No Jillian, anonymous is MORE of a concern than John Pistone, at least Pistone wasn't hiding behind the shroud of anonymity.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that their was conversation about the incident concerning Mr.Pisone and the protesters.
Yet, I was equally saddened to read some of the comments...Comments that were angry, insulting comments, made because they did not agree with the views of another.
This is a forum to learn and exchange thoughts and ideas. Why the anger and insult, just because he or she does not share your wisdom ?
And the woman ( I'm assuming ) upset, because she did not like the inclusion of swear words, used in the context of quoting someone ..Hilarious...In that sense, then the video should have been edited!
Inclusion of the cursing was an honest presentation of the facts. It allows the reader to comprehend the emotion of the moment, the anger that Mr. Pisone displayed.
Many are glad that Mr. Pisone lost his job. I'm not ecstatic about it, but I am pleased that his former company had the moral backbone to terminate an employee that represented a liability to them. I don't see this as an issue of Free Speech. This Company did not want someone working for them that was a economic liability. If by his continued employment, that company lost customers -that meant lost income. They had no choice.

Rig Pigs MOM says : Hey Mr. Pisone you can have a laugh on the dumbA$$ paid protesters while they are trying to make the drillers miserable they were getting rained on and breathing very TOXIC chemtrail poisons...That is more of an issue for human rights but NOBODY seems to care...Hold your head up honky white cracker redneck from another one and damn Proud of it !!!..

This "man" does not represent the people of Pennsylvania. He's a person who allows hate to overtake God's love in his heart. It's easier to hate someone you illogically feel superior to. Funny turn of events, John Pisone is now living off OUR tax dollars(including the working photo journalist). John Pisone has contributed nothing to America. He and his family are embarrassments to our country and should be treated as such. Sorry John, I don't think church can save you.
