A White Supremacist Talks About Murdering Members Of Congress
Way back in the day, I made fun of racist wackjob Hal Turner for speculating that 9/11 was an inside job.
Well, it seems Turner has gotten back in the news again for telling his readers that “If you re-elect the same people who have gotten us into the mess we’re in, folks like me may have to assassinate them!”. Via WorldNetDaily, here are some excerpts from Turner’s completely insane rant:
“As the November 7 Election approaches, I decided to write a few lines to my fellow Americans about the state of our nation and the ugliness that may have to occur if the people who caused these problems are re-elected: They may have to be assassinated.
…Suppose, HYPOTHETICALLY just for the sake of argument, that not all of the Congress and Supreme Court need to be removed. The House of Representatives consists of 435 members. The Senate consists of 100 members. But not all of them are “problems.”
For the purpose of this HYPOTHETICAL discussion, let’s say that only half of the US House and half of the US Senate are “problems” That’s a total of 267 “problems” in Congress. Obviously, there are at least three “problems” on the Supreme Court. 267 + 3 = 270 total “problems.”
Imagine if you will, teams of 5 committed citizens each, who were fed up with these “problems.”
270 x 5 = 1,350 committed citizens needed to resolve these “problems.”
Do you think that in America, a nation of 300,000,000 people, there are 1,350 committed citizens willing to put it all on the line to “correct” these “problems” and thus save the nation? I do.
It could be called “patriotic assassination.”
…Since he would not have been targeted, the President could tell the nation how “those responsible for this outrage will be caught” and how “we will not rest until. . . . . .” But deep down in his guts, he would fear the same thing happening to him. Like the remaining spineless politicians, I suspect he’d roll over and behave quite nicely.
Sure some of those involved in such a “corrective action” may be arrested, tried, convicted, jailed or even killed during such an operation, but it would have been for a worthwhile endeavor; an effort that would go down in history!
This is not far fetched. It can be done. In my opinion, it might have to be done. Or, to use a spin-off of the Supreme Court ruling, “there is a fundamental national interest in making certain the government obeys the Constitution. That concern justifies assassinating officials who violate it.” I would call it “patriotic assassination.”
For the record, I voluntarily renounce and repudiate the use of force and violence to effect political or social change- but I acknowledge that it is a viable option of last resort. For now, I refuse to utilize force or violence in all circumstances when the use of such force or violence would be unlawful.
…I don’t want to see such an attack against our government. I have no plans (at this time) to kill anybody. But I can – and I am willing to – if it comes down to it.”
Even if it turns out that they can’t charge Turner with anything as a result of this rant, this guy is obviously a dangerous lunatic who has put a lot of thought into how to murder members of the government. Since that’s the case, this article should be enough justification to tap his phone calls, monitor his internet connection, and keep him under surveillance…and if someone at the FBI isn’t doing that already, they should get on it ASAP.
