FDNY EMS Chief spews a barrage of racist, sexist, anti-Semitic and anti-Asian comments in his Twitter account
He’s a bigot — and a blubbering crybaby.
EMS Lt. Timothy Dluhos, 34, uses an image of Hitler for his profile photo and “Bad Lieutenant” as his online name as he spews a barrage of racist, sexist, anti-Semitic and anti-Asian comments. The FDNY boss proudly posed with Mayor Bloomberg during a 2009 ceremony but hatefully calls Hizzoner “King Jew” and “King Heeb” on Twitter. Dluhos, who works at EMS Station 57 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, dropped to the ground sobbing Friday when The Post confronted him outside his Staten Island home. “There has got to be a lot worse out there than me,” he insisted. BOO-HOO! EMS Lt. Timothy Dluhos blubbers at his Staten Island home after being confronted with his vile tweets. J.C. Rice BOO-HOO! EMS Lt. Timothy Dluhos blubbers at his Staten Island home after being confronted with his vile tweets. “My life is ruined. Oh, my God,” Dluhos wailed. “I’m so sorry.” Yet the 12-year EMS veteran, who was promoted to lieutenant in 2006, seemed to delight in these hateful Twitter diatribes: * “I’m going to give up racial insults for Lent,” he tweeted Feb. 12. “Jesus that didn’t [last] too long. F--ken chinks can’t drive.” * While giving what he called a “hood tour” of the Bedford-Stuyvesant area he serves, he posted photos of a housing project, fried-chicken joints and a strip club. “Real nasty place,” he tweeted Feb 23. “I’ve been there.” * “Hahaha! I work with the coloreds,” he wrote in a Feb. 8 exchange. “For 12 years so that s--t just run off on me.” * “Too bad he didn’t have rabies or AIDS and too bad he didn’t bite King Heeb’s face off,” he tweeted on Groundhog Day, Feb. 2, recalling when the groundhog Staten Island Chuck nipped Bloomberg at an event at the Staten Island Zoo. * “That’s how King Jew sees it. Ban all guns & shootings will go down in NYC. But it’s the criminals w/the guns,” he ranted Jan. 30. * A gold Nazi-era pin with a German U-boat and a swastika is “my most prized artifact,” he boasted on Jan. 30. * “He was a good boy who never done NUFFIN wrong. Unf--kenreal. He was a perp & died like a perp. Oh well,” he tweeted March 14, mocking the grieving mother of Kimani Gray, the 16-year-old boy who was killed by cops in Brooklyn on March 9. * He repeatedly Photoshopped an image of an unnamed black teen — putting a Hitler mustache on one photo and a surgical mask on another with the caption, “I’s be a doxter.” * “My son thinks he’s one of ‘those people,’ ” Dluhos wrote in a caption for a Jan. 29 snapshot of his toddler son wearing pants that sagged below his underwear. * “But at least I know my taxes go to the ‘undocumented’ citizens and lazy asses who do drugs all day,” Dluhos wrote March 15. * “Got an extra shift at my second job. Think this will buy me a new gun,” he said, referring to his side gig for Richmond County Ambulance. Photos show a sniper rifle and other firearms stashed in his home.

You've written some emotionally compelling information here and I'll admit, it upsets me to read this.

What we're missing is what makes it illegal.

Protected speech, free speech, was never designed or fought for, for those we agreed with, it was for those we don't.

I'm troubled by this. Not disagreeing with you, I'm just troubled. My visceral, emotional response vs. my constitutional viewpoint. Does that make any sense?

It's not fair the LT has to face the music alone, when the commissioner's son started this whole issue with the racists remarks on facebook or twitter!

Hi Steven,
He does have Freedom of Speech. No one put a muzzle on Lt Timothy Dluhos. Unfortunately, he represents and organization whose policy is not tolerant to racism and anti-semitism; and that is why he lost his job and ruined his career. Timothy knew this when he signed up for a job as it was part of the agreement he signed. He is still free to communicate these ideas to Twitter, Facebook, or whatever social network he pleases. I am for Freedom of speech and I hope that Mr. Dluhos continues to express his.
