|Meet Hal Turner.
Self-professed Republican, racist nutjob, and shortwave radio host, not to mention the proprietor of a wonderfully hateful little website.
If you can stomach it, before we get into Joe here, I want to give you a little perspective.
(I've waited for an excuse to bring this asswipe to the attention of the blogosphere for a long time now, and I can't BELIEVE it took me FIVE DAYS to think of checking his game after the CT-Sen primary. I'm slipping. Forgive me.)
Here's a sampling of front-paged hatefests you'll find there:
WASHINGTON DC POLICE ARREST FIVE IN ROBBERY, RAPE SPREE!
TERRORIZED TOURISTS ON THE NATIONAL MALL!!
WHen you read this MSNBC story, take note of how they carefully avoid telling you that ALL FIVE ARE BLACK!
CALIFORNIA COPS SEEK PERPS IN ARMED ROBBERY SPREE!
STRING OF GAS STATION HOLD-UP BY. . . . BLACK GANG!!!
Whether they're in California, New York or darkest Africa, negroes just can't help being negroes. Tell me again how "we're all equal?"
ILLEGAL ALIEN S##C ARRESTED IN NINE CAR-JACKINGS. . . .
. . . .FIRING SHOTS AT TWO OTHER VEHICLES; ARMED ROBBERY OF A DEPARTMENT STORE AND HAVING A SHOOT-OUT WITH POLICE!!
Tell me again how "They're just coming here to work hard and better their lives?"
Those of you who still think illegal aliens should be given "a path to citizenship" really need to get your head out of your ass. They BROEK OUR LAW to come here. Do you really think they'll bother obeying any of our othe laws? Stop being stupid. Speak out: "Build a wall; Deport them all!"
FAGS BASHED IN ESTONIA PARADE
PARADE OF 500 QUEERS TOTALLY DISRUPTED BY 50 STRAIGHT, WHITE MEN!!
Jew-run media "shocked" at "intolerance." Of course, the jew media is not shocked by grown men jack-hammering each other in the ass. . . . but then again, perversion and degeneracy is the hallmark of the filthy jew!!
GANG VIOLENCE PUTS SUMMER "CHILL" ON LOS ANGELES
20 RECENT SHOOTINGS DURING SINGLE WEEKEND!
Study shows almost all of the 500 murders in Los Angeles from 1994-2000 were black-on-black or Hispanic-on-Hispanic!
Tell me again how "we're all equal?" You don;t see whites doing this kind of violence on the same scale as blacks and hispanics. When will some of you wake up to the fact that non-whites are GENETICALLY different from whites to such an extent as to make them living among us a bad thing?
Some of you are so afraid of being called a racist, you are actually willing to ignore 500 murders for the sake of political correctness. Get your head out of your ass and start speaking out even if you ARE called "racist!"
If we Whites don't do something now, we will lose America to these non-white savages!
Yep, they're out there.
Here's the Hal Turner take on the CT-Senate primary, with some comments from his haloscans.........
One thing first.
I want to show you the death threat I got trolling his boards a few months ago. We'll get to Joe, I promise.........
It all started with an objection to the racist attacks on immigrants that are grist for the Hal Turner mill:
Why dont you GUYS FUCK YOURSELVES!
THESE PEOPLE ARE WORKERS JUST LIKE YOU AN ME! YOUR HATE IS NOT GOING TO DO ANY GOOD TO YOU... EVERYTHING YOU HAVE YOU OWE TO IMMIGRANTS SO SHUT YOUR NASTY MOUTHS UP! YOU NASTY WHITE SUPREMACIST... WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET OVER THE COLOR THING??? IT'S NOT ABOUT COLOR, IT'S ABOUT IGNORANCE AND FEAR!!! YOU MAKE ME PUKE!!!

To which I responded creatively.
I think y'all pissed this guy off.
My website offers a solution to dealing with the anger of such people.

Bob Dobalina, We know where you're at now. And we're going to take you out. You really fucked up posting here. We have you're IP address. We have you're home address. We know all about you. You really did fuck up, you'll see!........
Gee, pinky, if you know all that, then you also know I hold an FFL with a Class III SOT.
Think about it.

I occasionally correspond with Daryle Jenkins, the head guy of an antifa group called One People's Project. He likes Hal about as much as I do:
Hey long time no hear! I will keep you posted, but we are about to play with Turner again. And I see they LOVED your homepage link!
ANY-way. On to Joementum. Hal and his sicko cultists are happy he lost too - but their reasons are a little different than ours.

JEWS LOSE BIG:
THREE-TERM U.S. SENATOR JOE LIEBERMAN OUSTED IN CONNECTICUT PRIMARY ELECTION
THE WHINING HAS ALREADY BEGUN OVER HIS LOSS FOR SUPPORTING THE WARS IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ
Jew news stories and opinion columnists are already screaming how unfair and wrong it is to oust Lieberman. One Democrat columnist (jew) in the New York Post even wrote "So now that the wackadoo wing of the party has a bloody scalp, what are they going to do with it? Wave it at Islamic terrorists in Iraq and Lebanon and Afghanistan and Indonesia and Great Britain and Spain and Israel and New York and declare peace?"
Hal Turner answers, "no, they're waving the bloody scalp at JEWS and declaring peace! And that WILL work because all these wars have been driven by neo-con jews who are more interested in protecting Israel than they are doing what's right for the United States."
He links to this article in the NY Daily News. Then...... there's the comments.
Hold on to your gorge.
BUT: when you hear the right wing asswipes make veiled charges of antiSemitism against Democrats who voted out Joe Lieberman, they should know this about Hal fucking Turner:
(oh, and speaking of Fox News......)
Turner's case is particularly instructive, because he not only is unusually -- even eagerly and proudly -- vile, he also has history of activity within the Republican Party. On top of that, he reportedly has (or had) a friendship with one of the conservative media's leading figures: Limbaugh Jr. himself, Sean Hannity.
What it illustrates is how the dynamic of the transmission belt works: the extremist side of the equation provides the mainstream right-wing agitators with a fresh supply of outrage and talking points, and the mainstream connections give the far right a legitimacy, a connection with the larger political discourse, they would not otherwise have.
During the 1990s, Turner made a habit of calling into Hannity's WABC radio program as "Hal from North Bergen," one of the show's regular callers. "Hal" liked to say increasingly outrageous things: in August 1998, according to the One People's Project profile [Google cache],
he remarked on Hannity's show that "if it weren't for the white man, blacks would still be swinging from the trees in Africa." Hannity not only failed to rebuke "Hal" for the remark, he continued plugging into Turner whenever he called.
Turner in fact had a history of quasi-racist activism, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which profiled Turner last year:
As early as 1994, he was defending racism, holding a rally for New York radio talk show host Bob Grant, who had been fired from his show for making racist comments about blacks. In the late 199s, Turner often called in to local radio shows as "Hal from North Bergen," telling their hosts things like, "The problem with police brutality is that cops don't use it enough."
All this culminated in 2000, when Turner stepped forward to run for the Republican nomination for Congress in his home district in New Jersey. He appeared on Hannity's Fox News program and received his old friend's endorsement. Turner himself has claimed that during this time, he and Hannity were "good friends." Hannity himself has since remained mum on the subject -- because as noxious as Turner may have been before 2000, afterward, his true stripes became unmistakable.
Turner lost that race, and it became something of a turning point for his ideological career. Where before his bigotry had been of the "edgy" variety, he soon openly embraced the ideology of various hate groups and white supremacists, as the SPLC explained:
In 2000, Turner sought the local Republican nomination for Congress, and was enraged when GOP leaders instead supported Theresa de Leon, a dark-skinned Hispanic who was the chief financial officer for New York's Legal Aid Society and the mother of 10 children. It was at this moment that Turner had a reported "epiphany," deciding the system was rigged against white men and abandoning all ties to the mainstream.
Not long after, he started up "The Hal Turner Show," renting time on shortwave radio maverick Allan Weiner's WBCQ, located in Monticello, Maine.
Building up a substantial audience and paying for the five-nights-a-week, two-hour show with advertising and donations, he became a favorite of many on the radical right, including several in the neo-Nazi National Alliance*. After neo-Nazi World Church of the Creator* leader Matt Hale was arrested in late 2002 for allegedly soliciting the murder of a federal judge, Turner openly supported Hale.
Hal Turner. AntiSemite. Racist nutjob. Nose problem. Republican.
And perhaps only unusual among Republicans in that he is out front about what he is.
Oh, I almost forgot: a little love note I got from Hal after I tried spraying some of the above information all over his haloscans:
Subject: Nice try

From: Hal Turner <Host@HalTurnerShow.com>
None of your lies are getting published. Nice try, though.
They're published now, Hal. And I don't think they're lies.
Have a nice day.
