The good news is that the FBI is finally cracking down on Conservative talk show hosts who call for violent actions against people they disagree with. The bad news is they busted some nobody you’ve never heard of:
Prosecutors say Hal Turner allegedly posted the threatening Internet messages on June 2. They say the 47-year-old declared his “outrage” over a decision by the three judges in upholding bans on handguns in Chicago and suburban Oak Park.
They quoted Turner’s posting as saying: “Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed.”
OK, so not a bad start, but when are they going to go after Bill “Douchebag” O’Reilly or Rush Limbaugh or, best of all, Ann Coulter? All have said similarly outrageous things, though they tend to aim them at liberals in general and not particular individuals. Which is probably why they can get away with it. This idiot’s mistake was getting too specific about who he thinks should be killed.
