Why isn't this guy being visited by the Secret Service??

Apparently Hal Turner is back, and I don't think the stories on his site are any sort of April Fool's Joke.

Story 1: he calls the Mexican army "filthy, brown-skinned aub-huiman-mongreals [sic]" because they have the audacity to protect their nationals against the Minuteman Project vigilantes.

Story 2: anti-Semitic screed blaming Israel for 9/11.

Story 3: He manages to put a White Supremicist slant on the immanent death of Pope John Paul II, citing a rumor that the next Pontiff could be Black or "Latin." To quote this horrible bastard: "Non-Whites can never be Pope because they are not of God's Chosen; Jews have been trying to steal the title of "God's Chosen" for centuries, but those of us who understand the Bible know that only whites constitute God's Chosen."

I will stop here, but I want to mention a couple of choice nuggets "below the fold" on his page:

Item: Regarding the judges that ruled on the Schiavo case -- "TIME TO START ASSASSINATING JUDGES?....If neither Congress nor State Legislatures will impeach them for their bad behavior on the Bench, then it falls to us, The People to to perform the necessary dirty work. I would volunteer!!"

Item: "IRAN NUKES BY JUNE! Mullahs To Have "The Bomb" By Summer I earnestly hope the first place Iran nukes is Tel Aviv Israel, and the second place they nuke is Washington, DC. Both cities are infested with such despicable human garbage (a.k.a. politicians) that only a nuke can cleanse the filth."

This man is nucking futz and is openly calling for assassination of undocumented aliens, Federal judges and the nuclear destruction of Washington, DC and Tel Aviv, Israel. OK, the latter is something he doesn't have much control over, but the kind of nuts who listen to his radio show and hang on his every misspelled written word are the kind of people who might get out a gun and shoot a judge.

Who the Secret Service are visiting instead of this ravening menace: a guy who's trying to get together a Progressive television news channel and a Democratic think tank. Good lord!

Oh yeah, nobody's fooling down in Tombstone, AZ, either. The only comforting thing about the Minuteman Project is that their numbers are in the handfuls instead of the thousands. Hopefully the low turnout will convince these people not to go on their fool's errand at the border. But I doubt it. I think these guys want to "kill them some mex'ins" and won't give up until blood spills at the border.

If anything has killed irony, it's been the George W. Bush Administration, not 9/11. This has been a totally levity-less, humorless April Fool's Day. Part of it has to do with the Pope Death Watch, (I'm not Catholic but he's earned his place in history as one of the people most responsible for the collapse of the Warsaw Pact) part of it has to do with the Terri Schiavo circus folding its tent only the day before, but part of it has to do with the feeling that the lunatics are indeed running the asylum. Welcome to Planet Baka. Enjoy your stay.
