The FBI Mole, Christian Identity and You

When the Right Mole Becomes TOO Right Himself

Hal Turner, the internet radio show host who routinely advocated killing Jews, illegal aliens nd Supreme Court Justices is off the air.

But the FCC had nothing to do with it.

It seems he may have gotten "outed" as an FBI informant. According to Hatewatch (published by The Southern Poverty Law Center), Turner received some interesting emails stating that someone had hacked into his server and discovered incriminating email linking him to the FBI payroll. Today (Thursday)

"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.'"

"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.' A year earlier, he suggested 'drawing up lists of yeshivas,'” or Jewish religious schools. He once started a website called for the purpose of posting photos and names of those who marched in favor of immigrant rights."

The influence Turner had on neo-Nazis and groups like Christian Identity is debated, but with rhetoric as inflamatory as his, how could he not be the seminal part of violence? Did he go too far in presenting himself as a supreme hater, abetting more crimes than he ostensibly prevented?

The FBI declined to comment on the situation.

How far is too far? What do you think?
