Nice to know I didn't LIBEL him, ain't it Neiwert?

Busy day today. Well, well, what have we here? Remember THIS from over a month ago? Then I wrote in regard to Pretty Boy Turner:

Well, the ever-loathsome web-Nazi and FBI paid snitch Hal Turner is in the news again. He is proving to be a most useful tool of the FBI, IF, and its a big if, this present case doesn't blow up in their faces. Not since the case of Mafia killer and FBI snitch Whitey Bolger have we had a better chance to find out the inner workings of the Kingdom of FBI Snitchdom. (What? You think it's a coincidence that Whitey's still on the lam?)

Outed as a paid FBI snitch when his emails with an FBI special agent were hacked and posted, Turner earlier this month was arrested by the FBI for threatening judges. The case has the potential to strike at the heart of the First Amendment on-line as Jacob Sullum reports here at Reason Magazine.

Well, I'm glad to know I didn't LIBEL him or anything, right David Neiwert? You see, Turner finally admitted in court what we've known all along -- something that we in the constitutional militia movement have known since the '90s -- that the so-called racist "right" (which are just a different flavor of collectivist) are pawns and cats-paws of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Go here for the latest on Terrible Turner the Totalitarian's Friend and the former darling of the Hoover Building. Don't know why they busted such a useful tool. I mean, after all, they let Whitey Bolger get away with murder in return for snitching, and he's STILL on the lam.

Radio host denies threatening federal judges

July 28, 2009

An Internet radio host pleaded not guilty today to threatening to kill three federal appellate judges in Chicago and then sought his release from custody, saying he has been an informant for the FBI.

Hal Turner, who was arrested last month at his home in New Jersey, shook his head after being handed a copy of the indictment.

Turner is charged with calling for appellate judges Frank Easterbrook, William Bauer and Richard Posner to be killed after they affirmed a lower court decision June 2 to dismiss challenges to Chicago's handgun ban.

Turner allegedly used his web site to put out the message that all three were "cunning, ruthless, untrustworthy, disloyal, unpatriotic, deceitful scum."

"Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed," he allegedly said.

A federal judge from Louisiana will be brought in to preside over the case.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Martin Ashman gave Turner 10 days to subpoena an FBI agent who Turner contends acted as his handler as he supplied the government with information.

Turner's lawyer, Michael Orozco, said Turner prevented military equipment from being sold on the Internet and even tipped off the U.S. Marshal Service to a threat against President Barack Obama.

"So you're saying he's an American hero," Ashman said somewhat sarcastically.

As for the charges, Orozco said Turner was only giving his opinion on the judges' ruling and that he has a Constitutional right to free speech.

Assistant U.S. Atty. William Hogan said a magistrate judge in New Jersey had already ordered Turner detained before he was sent to Chicago, finding that he was a threat to the community. He has continued to air threatening radio messages on the Internet since his arrest, including a call placed from custody in New Jersey, Hogan said.

Hogan said Turner may have had some contact with the FBI as an informant but that it was quite some time ago. He said he had no idea about any action Turner supposedly took to thwart an attack on the president.

If all he said was that they "deserved to be killed" without actually encouraging anyone to do so, nor threatening to do so himself, I'm afraid I agree with the scumbag. He has a right to an opinion and to state it.

I don't have to like him to see the larger danger here to all the rest of us. And the danger to consitution.
