Radio Host: Incumbents 'May Have to be Assassinated'

In a lengthy rant, anti-semitic radio host Hal Turner believes that 1.350 "patriot assassins" would be a large enough force to overwhelm Secret Service agents and Capitol Police and deal with the "problems" posed by half the US House and Senate and "at least three problems" on the Supreme Court:
As the November 7 Election approaches, I decided to write a few lines to my fellow Americans about the state of our nation and the ugliness that may have to occur if the people who caused these problems are re-elected: They may have to be assassinated.
Among the crimes for which Turner believes these folks "may" have to die are passage of the Patriot Act and ruling that boating, hunting and fishing in navigable waterways is illegal.

In the comments on his website, Turner writes that his careful choice of words gives him legal cover:
hey hal instead of saying "may" SAY you WILL KILL THEM!!! grow some balls!

------------------- Hal Turner responds:

No no no no no. Words mean things. The difference between "may" and "will" is the difference between an opinion and a threat.

One is lawful, the other is not.

It's not a matter of balls, it's a matter of brains!

No word yet on whether the FBI agrees.

Interestingly, while Turner's radio show and website are popular with Nazi and White Power types, most of Turner's views are shared by Democrats.
