Ok, hold up, wait, lemme check my back pocket to see if I can find a new race card. I’ve been pulling them out left and right for a while and I hate to approach another blog post without one. Ain’t nuthin more embarrasing than reaching for a race card when you don’t have one; ain’t that right former Memphis mayor Willie Herenton? Ok cool. Whew! I’m glad I found one; I thought I was out. So anyway, have you heard about this guy Hal Turner? Never heard of him? Oh ok. Well he’s this White Supremacist blogger, activist, ex-radio show from his basement having, one time FBI informant. Yeah, he’s done a lot to advance the cause of White Nationalists, all while being on the gov’t payroll as he supposedly helped them take down White Supremacist organizations. Isn’t that funny? A White Supremacist working for the gov’t to help take down White Supremacist groups by promoting White Supremacy? Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that Hal is currently in some jail cell awaiting trial after being arrested for sending death threats to a few politicians, judges, federal prosecutors who just so happen to be white. You know, important people who also work for the government like him.
In a recent article in the Associated Press, Katie Nelson wrote:
“Prosecutors have acknowledged that Turner was an informant who spied on radical right-wing organizations, but the defense has said Turner was not working for the FBI when he allegedly made threats against Connecticut legislators and wrote that three federal judges in Illinois deserved to die.Sounds like the ultimate dream job doesn’t it? Talk about getting paid to do what you love; how can a brotha be down Uncle Sam? So where’s the race card RiPPa, and why did you have to even waste it on an asshole like Hal Turner? It’s not like we don’t know he’s not fond of Blacks, Jews, Hispanics, or green men from outta space. Yeah, I understand and you’re right, different people have acknowledged this very fact. But see, this isn’t about Turner; this is about the government. They paid Turner to say and do what he did. Yes, Hal Turner’s lawyer said recently, and prosecutors agreed, that Turner was “trained by the FBI on how to be deliberately provocative” and “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.” Isn’t it ironic that while employed by the FBI, the number of White Supremacist groups have increased drastically?
“‘But if you compare anything that he did say when he was operating, there was no difference. No difference whatsoever,’ [his lawyer] said.”
So what the gov’t used him and flipped on him; big deal.
Well, how come they didn’t flip on him back in 2006 when he said that then Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (who is Black by the way) should be lynched on her way to the polls for being “a violent, Black, racist bitch.” An act which he also said would send a message to other “uppity” Blacks that “white people are tired of your bullshit, behave or die.” Oh, and lemme not forget to mention that he put McKinney's address out there on the internet on his site just like he did the federal judges. Let’s see, maybe Cynthia McKinney wasn’t important enough? Or could it be since his job was to say and do things to incite people to act as he was trained to do, could it be that “somebody” wanted Cynthia McKinney dead? Maybe I’m trippin’, but if threatening the lives of white politicians and federal judges is a crime. How come doing the same to a Black female sitting in Congress, isn't?
Damn, watch your back Barack…
A white man who was working for the U.S. Census bureau was found hanging from a tree in Clay County Kentucky with the words “Fed” scribbled on his chest. Who's to say that this was not an act sanctioned and paid for by tax payer dollars and motivated through the actions of somebody like Hal Turner? I tell you one thing for sure: whoever killed that poor guy wasn't Black. In Clay County Kentucky, or more specifically The Daniel Boone National Forest, the only Black person or people there, are the ghosts of those who were lynched and still hanging from trees. But yet Turner is now mounting the defense that he was just doing what he was paid to do?
Talk about that victim mentality...
Please don’t tell me I wasted my race card.
