Hal Turner, an occasional talk show host on internet radio and blogger, was arrested today by the FBI in his New Jersey home on charges he threatened to murder three federal appeals court judges in Chicago following their recent ruling upholding handgun bans.

As should anyone who is threatening to murder any person, not just judges and politicians.

Default Turner is Hannity's Buddy

"One of Hannity's former close chums is a neo-Nazi named Hal Turner who used to be a radio host, is apparently the top man in Bergen, NJ white-supremacist circles, and probably spends a lot of his time in his basement with Star Wars action figures acting out Holocaust-denier versions of The Return of the Jedi. In short, just the sort of person with whom you'd imagine Sean Hannity spends a lot of formational time with."

Sean Hannity Confronted Over His Relationship With Neo-Nazi Hal Turner

I wonder when the wingnuts will start claiming that this guy is a liberal democrat?

Another Von Brunn in the making. The bitter hatred being spread by the extreme right in this country is so pervasive that it really doesn't shock any more. I wonder if our country can survive it.

Good, and let there be more if need be.

Being on the net is no excuse for this kind of behavior.

It's okay to disagree, to debate, to banter back and forth and to express an opinion ...

But when you cross the line and begin to threaten the safety and well being of others ... Well then, it's time for the authorities to step in and do the job they were hired to do.

I'm glad to see that he was arrested. Threats of murder against officials need to be taken seriously.
