Turner, 45, has developed a reputation as one of the hardest-line racists on the radical right since starting up his radio show seven years ago. He has routinely ranted about such things as a "Portable Nigger Lyncher" machine and slimed those he hates as "savage Negro beasts," "bull-dyke lesbians," "faggots" and worse.
But it is his threats that are legendary.
In 2006, Turner told his audience to "clean your guns, have plenty of ammunition ... [and] then do what has to be done" to undocumented workers. Around the same time, he suggested that half the U.S. Congress "may have to be assassinated.
Hal Turner was recently arrested for threatening three federal appeals court judges in Chicago Over a recent decision upholding handgun bans. This revelation comes at a time when the mainstream media is working frantically to demonize 2nd Amendment activists while working to convince the American people that right-wing extremism is growing in the United States.
According to the AP, A New Jersey blogger facing charges in two states for allegedly making threats against lawmakers and judges was trained by the FBI on how to be deliberately provocative, his attorney said Tuesday.
Hal Turner worked for the FBI from 2002 to 2007 as an "agent provocateur" and was taught by the agency "what he could say that wouldn't be crossing the line," defense attorney Michael Orozco said. He said that Hal's job was basically to publish information which would cause other parties to act in a manner which would lead to their arrest.
Right-wing extremist groups may be using the recession and the election of the nation's first African-American president to recruit members, a Department of Homeland Security report contends. At the same time, the mainstream media has been crafting a particularly warped version of reality by suggesting that critics of Barack Obama might be racist extremists. It is already being alleged in mainstream publications like the Huffington Post that using words like socialism is really CODE for the N-word.
The tactic continues despite the falling approval rating of the president. Results of a recent Gallup-Rusmussen poll show that Obama still has the strong support of at least 5 out of 10 Americans, down from the previous month's poll numbers that stood 7 out of 10.
In the following Youtube video, Hannity is confronted on this fact which he first denies, then later admits.
In this video, CNN allows Hal Turner nearly ten minutes of air time to spew his hateful message. Why has he been allowed to operate as long as he has?
Earlier this year, it was reported that unidentified hackers electronically confronted Turner in the forum of his website for "The Hal Turner Show." After a heated exchange, they told Turner that they had successfully hacked into his server and found correspondence with an FBI agent who is apparently Turner's handler. Then they posted an alleged July 7 E-mail to the agent in which Turner hands over a message from someone who sent in a death threat against Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.). "Once again," Turner writes to his handler, "my fierce rhetoric has served to flush out a possible crazy." In what is allegedly a portion of another E-mail, Turner discusses the money he is paid.
On Thursday, as the E-mail exchange was heatedly discussed on a major neo-Nazi website, Turner suddenly announced he was quitting political work. "I hereby separate from the 'pro-White' movement," he said, adding that he was ending his radio show immediately. "I will no longer involve myself in any aspect of it."
The FBI declined comment. "Longstanding FBI policy prohibits disclosing who may or may not provide information," Agent Richard Kolko of the agency's press unit said. Reached in New Jersey, Turner also declined all comment.
The apparent revelation set off a torrent of criticism from experts in criminology and the use of informants.
During the 1960s and early 70s, the FBI used a variety of methods to disrupt activist groups including wiretapping, providing drugs, even assassination — as well as the use of agents provocateurs — in coordination with state and local police.
As the case against Turner and the revelations of his attorney reveal, the government did not abandon its COINTELPRO tactics, as it claimed in the mid 1970s. The FBI, acting as the establishment’s political secret police, continues to undermine political movements the elite consider dangerous and a threat to their control and influence.So why did the FEDS finally decide to swoop in on Hal's operation? It is likely that Hal burned his handlers in some form. This revelation should be a warning to the readers, especially those who are members of militias. There is no doubt that many groups have been infiltrated in order to plant agents inside to not only spy on the group, but to encourage violent and illegal activity guaranteed to land you in a federal prison. This is why is important not to fall into a agent's or informants game of entrapment.
Hal Turner specifically attempted to appeal to the patriot movement and the constitutionalists as can see from his youtube video in which he claimed to have inside information concerning the coming currency of the North American Union. This video alone raised alarm bells in the research community when his claim remained unsubstantiated by any facts or evidence, potentially harming genuine research into a very real North American Union.
Now that Hal Turner has been exposed as the FBI informant that he is, it should be no surprise why he doesn't seem to have any friends left as you can see from his recent phone call from jail which ends in tears and he cries how scared he is in an all black jail as he waits for sentencing from his protective custody cell.
