Glitter bombs sent to pro-life offices across the country by abortion supporters

A series of glitter bombs have been sent by abortion advocates to pro-life groups across the country.

The latest report comes from Life News in an e-mail message:

    Our office has been bombed!

    No, we were not the victim of the kind of bombing you see on the nightly news that claims people’s lives and causes them to live in fear of terror. Instead, LifeNews has been the victim of pro-abortion glitter bombs.

    Over the last few weeks, abortion activists have sent several glitter bomb letters to LifeNews, some with threatening messages. When our staff open the letters, glitter poured inside goes everywhere and makes a huge mess.

    While these glitter bombs are insulting and intimidating rather than life-threatening — they contain an inspiring reminder: the pro-abortion side knows LifeNews is effective!

    As the most-visited pro-life place on the Internet – with almost 20 million visitors already this year – abortion advocates know LifeNews is presenting the pro-life message to people around the world and giving them the tools to fight back against the culture of death.

    The pro-abortion side knows we’re effective in promoting stories about the brave decisions parents are making every day to reject abortion, even in dire circumstances. The other side sees how we’re pushing back against their false arguments. And they know we’re helping pro-life groups pass pro-life bills to stop abortions!

Life News was talking about a number of other reported incidents where pro-life officers received what has been termed the pro-choice glitter bomb:

Earlier this month, the Daily Caller reported this incident at Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s office:

glitter bomb for choice

    A glitter bomb exploded all over the office of Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry’s Nebraska office Wednesday in a strikingly immature effort by abortion activists to protest his pro-life stance.

    Congrats, you’ve earned this for trying to deny women their right to choice,” a note attached to the glitter bomb read. “Mind your own uterus.”

Fortenberry’s spokeswoman Jennifer Allen told the Omaha World-Herald that unusual mail to congressional offices is taken seriously because of the potential for actual threats.

Fortenberry’s office said the glitter bomb was reported to police, the U.S. postal inspector and the FBI, Allen said.

Last Month, Students for Life was the recipient of a glitter bomb to which they replied, “For all the great pro-life work we are doing, abortion advocates sent us glitterbombs. We could not be more excited! Always a great thing to be recognized for protecting life and even better when it includes glitter!

Pro-life Action League has also reported receiving these messages, posting two images on Facebook, “Another delivery at our office today from “Glitter Bombs for Choice.” This time around, they used LifeNews.com’s mailing address as the return address.”

March 13th, Iowa Right to Life posted this, “Today’s mail brought TWO MORE Glitter-Bombs!! (Four this week!) Those “Glitter-Bombers for Choice” LOVE us obviously. One was mailed out of Nebraska and another one from Oregon. These “gifts” also included tiny metal coat hangers and sweet “love notes.”

Woot! And so we carry on for the lives of the born and unborn!”

An interesting piece published by Priceonomics spells out the history of the so-called tactic using examples all geared toward perceived Conservative individuals or groups. , writing of a glitter-bomb attack on Newt Gingrich in 2011, “25-year-old equal rights activist Nick Espinosa christened “glitter bombing,” a form of protest (political or otherwise) in which public figures are doused in a shimmering shower of copolymer plastics.”

They continued:

    Nick Espinosa, the activist who’d started the trend by peppering Gingrich, became the revolution’s unofficial spokesman; in a Huff Post editorial, he clarified its intentions:

    I am not willing to sit back and watch the right wing systematically dehumanize and strip group after group of their rights….We are standing up against those who have dehumanized, divided and conquered. We are finding creative and fun ways to expose hatred and bigotry.

    The strength of glitter is that humor is an incredibly powerful tool for communicating a message — even a deadly serious one. We use humor to give hope to ourselves and each other, while contrasting our approach with the hateful and cruel attacks on our communities.

    As long as politicians continue [this trend], they can expect the sparkly showers to continue.”

A 2011 rundown of the glitter-bomb incidents outlined by the AP at that time included:

    On May 17, Gingrich and his wife, Callista, were showered with glitter at a book signing in Minneapolis. The perpetrator was Nick Espinosa, an activist and occasional political prankster who yelled at the former House speaker, “Stop the hate. Stop the anti-gay politics.”
    On June 16, two activists from the left-wing group CodePink dumped glitter on Pawlenty while he was signing books at a health insurance conference in San Francisco. Before being led away, the activists berated the former Minnesota governor for his conservative views on gay rights and abortion.
    On June 18, an activist flung glitter toward Bachmann just after the Minnesota congresswoman finished a speech at a conservative conference in Minneapolis. The activist, Rachel Lang, said afterward that she was protesting Bachmann’s “hateful and anti-gay rhetoric.”

Espinosa has not been implicated in the recent glitter attacks, however, he once told Edge Boston this about his targeting of so-called anti-gay Conservatives , “It’s almost laughable that people like Glenn Beck and Mike Huckabee claim that glitter is assault,” Espinosa mused. “I would laugh if they weren’t assaulting people’s humanity on a daily basis, and if their constant inflammatory rhetoric didn’t produce real violence in the form of the attacks we’ve seen from abortion clinics in the U.S. to summer camps in Norway.

“The fact that they get so upset over something as fabulous as glitter just goes to show that their hateful views are heading towards extinction as a new generation shows its power — we are winning.”

Espinosa told Feministting, “I think that as a man, I need to speak out against patriarchy, and hold my community accountable. As a person who constantly benefits from a society in which my gender is privileged, I see it as my responsibility to act as an ally to women, as part of a lifelong movement toward our collective liberation. I don’t think that women should have to be the ones bringing feminist issues up. They’re not just women’s issues, but basic issues of equality and justice, and as long as we live in a world where women are oppressed, none of us are free. I would also like to see the feminist movement grow out of what has sometimes been a largely white and middle class movement into one that’s more inclusive of women of color and women from the developing world. I think it’s crucial that we see the intersectionality of our oppressions, and build movements that reflect that and build power for all of us.”

A Report by the UK’s Globe and Mail reveals how sending Glitter Bombs to “your enemies” has become a business for some:

Pro-choicer: re-take the morality of Abortion from right-wing

KatieSpeaks

Katie Klabusich @Katie_Speak is an avid pro-choicer who claims they must re-take the “morality of the issue [abortion] from the right wing”

On Acronym TV she advocates that more women tell about their “abortion stories” yet she disregards the thousands who have already spoken out publicly with Silent No More , a group that says they regret their abortions.

Katie also coordinates getting pro-choicers out to abortion clinics on twitter at the hashtag #protectthezone.

Caroline who defines herself as a “#prochoice/#reprojustice advocate” tweets the hashtag’s purpose: “As always on Sat mornings, check the #protectthezone HT for the reality of going into a doctor’s office for a legal, common procedure”

Katie gripes, Picketers stand around the neighborhood near the clinic. How are businesses ok with this?

Katie Speaks

According to a recent post by the pro-abort blog RH Reality Check, Katie Klabusich is an abortion clinic escort:

RH REality Katie

On her blog, KatieSpeaks.com, she writes, “If this offends, surprises, frustrates or emboldens you, there’s good news! YOU HAVE POWER. In my recent piece for Truthout, “Open Letter to Legislators From a Clinic Escort,” I detail how and why cities and counties have the authority to impose safety protections for health centers even though most elected officials don’t realize it. You don’t have to be on a sidewalk to help! Calling and writing your city council, asking them to stand up for their constituents is powerful. At the state and federal level, we often feel frustrated and without any way to affect change. Locally, your effectiveness is real. If you need guidance getting started, feel free to email me at KatieSpeakMail@gmail.com and I’ll help you get the ball rolling, connect you to local resources and even meet with legislators if my experience can help craft meaningful legislation.

It’s time we became not just pro-choice, but also pro-active. We have fought against bad legislation for two generations; it is our turn to push for our values to become law. We have the moral upper hand and we must speak and act accordingly.”

And what are those supposed dangerous “antichoicers” doing? Nicole describes her experience, “I‘m getting a fantastic rambly lecture about God and Jesus.. at least they aren’t bugging the patients”

Apparently this is the place to be if you want NO CHOICE for protesting and free speech outside child killing death camps:

In wake of the recent shootings in Arizona- the left is blaming “right-wing” for the Rhetoric which they claim led to the violence.

The Radically Left-Wing Daily Kos is accusing Sarah Palin of being responsible for the climate that led to the attempted murder of Rep. Giffords in Arizona. The reason: Palin’s use of the symbol “Target” .

What about their “Hate”? The Daily Kos has now removed this post:

But…what the media will NOT report is how Left-Wing Daily Kos placed a TARGET on Rep. Giffords and others in June of 2008:

And the Daily Kos is a website often used by left-wing politicians like: Barack Obama

Also in 2008, this is what Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Then in November of 2010- Obama said Latino’s should “Punish their enemies”

Pelosi had something to say when the political debate heated up during the Tea Party protests:


H/T- Right Perspective

In 2009 ,at the height of public resentment at bonuses being paid to Wall Street investment bankers, Obama said on March 30, 2009 that “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry.”

“I don’t want to quell anger. People are right to be angry. I’m angry. What I want us to do is channel our anger in a constructive way.”

Obama got very defensive when questioned about his inaction on the BP oil spill during an interview for American television on June 7, 2010 and said the following:

At a campaign stop on September 18, 2008, Obama advocated that his supporters “argue with [people], get in their faces”:

John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate Conservative Republican President Ronald Reagan and was fixed on Actress Jodi Foster- should we now eliminate all Jodi Foster Movies?

And do not forget the other left-wing groups like:

The extremist Earth Liberation Front, or ELF, has claimed responsibility for a rash of fires in California, including a $50-million development in San Diego.

“The organization has never harmed a single person,” said former ELF spokesman Craig Rosebraugh….

Equally stealthy animal radicals also are turning up the heat with an escalating rampage of destruction. In all, these extremists claim more than $100 million of destruction across the country.

Animal rights activists bombed a Bay Area genetics lab and released 10,000 mink in Washington.

and of course, the infamous: UNABOMBER

Perhaps Franklin Graham , the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, put it best when he made this statement regarding the shootings and “political rhetoric”:

This weekend our nation experienced a horrible attack by a deranged man in Arizona. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in their time of need and suffering.

As the American people grapple for answers to the question of how something as senseless as this shooting could happen, we need to be measured and cautious before we place blame.

Hasty accusations have already been made before much information is known and an investigation has occurred. I believe this is counterproductive and could in itself incite hatred. This is not a time for political opportunism.

Just because we disagree with someone from another political party does not mean we wish them harm. Furthermore, if something horrific happens to a person, it does not mean those who hold differing views are responsible for the actions of a disturbed individual.

What frightens me is that our country has accepted murder, violence and rape as entertainment that we see portrayed every day on TV, movies and video games. I agree with Sheriff Clarence Dupnik when he alluded to the fact that this country needs some serious soul searching. If we as a nation are not careful, we could see the destruction of the foundation upon which this nation was built.

Clearly our politicians and pundits on the left and right must also be careful. Their leadership and rhetoric must set an example for decency and civility.

My prayer is that God will put His loving arms around the families and victims in their time of loss and great suffering, and that they would sense His presence and comfort in their lives.

FBI radio host agent: Racist Rhetoric tells all

Records show feds used ultra-right radio host for years
Sunday, November 29, 2009 BY MIKE KELLY AND PETER J. SAMPSON
The (NJ) Record

They called him “Valhalla.”

But it was more than a nickname.

For more than five years, Hal Turner of North Bergen lived a double life.

The public knew him as an ultra-right-wing radio talk show host and Internet blogger with an audience of neo-Nazis and white supremacists attracted to his scorched-earth racism and bare-knuckles bashing of public figures. But to the FBI, and its expanding domestic counter-terror intelligence operations in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Turner was “Valhalla” — his code name as an informant who spied on his own controversial followers.

Turner’s clandestine past was confirmed this past summer when he was jailed on charges that he made threats on his blog against three federal judges in Chicago. In court after his arrest, federal prosecutors acknowledged Turner’s FBI ties but downplayed his importance and even described him as “unproductive.”

But an investigation by The Record — based on government documents, e-mails, court records and almost 20 hours of jailhouse interviews with Turner — shows that federal authorities made frequent use of Turner in its battle against domestic terrorism.

As Turner took to his radio show and blog to say that those who opposed his extremist views deserve to die, he received thousands of dollars from the FBI to report on such groups as the Aryan Nations and the white supremacist National Alliance, and even a member of the Blue Eyed Devils skinhead punk band. Later, he was sent undercover to Brazil where he reported a plot to send non-military supplies to anti-American Iraqi resistance fighters. Sometimes he signed “Valhalla” on his FBI payment receipts instead of his own name.

His dual life of shock jock and informant offers a window into the murky realm of domestic intelligence in the years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks — in particular, the difficult choices for the FBI in penetrating controversial fringe groups with equally controversial informants.

In interviews, conducted before Turner was released on bail, he said the FBI coached him to make racist, anti-Semitic and other threatening statements and now he feels double-crossed by the bureau after his arrest. The documents reviewed by The Record, however, show repeated instances of federal agents admonishing Turner for his extremism.

Federal prosecutors in Newark and Chicago declined to respond to Turner’s claims, as did FBI officials. “We do not comment on matters before the courts and will not address Mr. Turner’s allegations in the press,” said the FBI’s Weysan Dun, who runs the bureau’s Newark field office.

Turner’s “Valhalla” life will likely be on display this week when he is scheduled to go on trial for his alleged blog threats against three federal appeals court judges in Chicago who upheld a law banning handguns. The trial, originally set for Chicago, was switched to Brooklyn, with a judge flying in from Louisiana.

The trial may have its share of political intrigue. Turner’s defense attorney, Michael Orozco, said he plans to subpoena Governor-elect Chris Christie to testify about whether he advised the FBI about Turner while Christie was U.S. attorney in Newark. On Friday, Orozco filed a motion to dismiss the case, accusing the government of “outrageous conduct.”

But the center of the court battle will likely be the story of Hal Turner and his FBI connections, which began in 2003 with the Newark-based Joint Terrorism Task Force, and continued on and off until this year.

Rumors of Turner’s FBI work surfaced two years ago after unknown Internet hackers electronically broke into his Web site and found e-mails between Turner and an FBI agent. Turner never acknowledged his FBI role until after his arrest in June — and then with a mix of anger and chagrin.

Imagine my surprise,” he wrote in one of several letters from jail to The Record, “when agents from the very FBI that trained and paid me came to my house to arrest me.”

In a memo only two years earlier, the FBI said Turner “has proven highly reliable and is in a unique position to provide vital information on multiple subversive domestic organizations.” The memo went on to say that Turner’s “statistical accomplishments include over 100 subjects identified, over 10 acts of violence prevented and multiple subjects arrested.

I was not some street snitch,” Turner said in one of several lengthy interviews at the Hudson County Jail, where he was kept until the terms of his bail were worked out in October — terms that prevented him from talking to reporters after his release. “I was a deep undercover intelligence operative.”

Misgivings on both sides

Whatever his role, one thing is clear: The relationship between Turner and the FBI often was rocky, with both sides cutting ties several times.

In March 2005, Turner abruptly quit. In a letter to his FBI handlers, he cited a “complete failure” by the agency “to achieve the goals for which I began the relationship,” the “dismal lack of arrests,” the failure to track down a “threat to kill me and my family” and “exploitation” by the FBI “to interfere with content of my Internet Web site.”

By June, however, Turner was again on the FBI payroll. The FBI, meanwhile, harbored its own doubts about Turner.

Five days after Turner’s March 2005 letter, an internal FBI memo summarized rising concerns that his rhetoric was too controversial and possibly dangerous.

Is he a big mouth? Yes,” the memo said. “Does he say really deplorable things? Yes. Is he a physical threat to anyone? I don’t think so.

Records show the FBI continued this kind of questioning throughout its connection to Turner — valuing his ties to right-wing hate groups, but also worrying that his audience might follow up on his violence rhetoric.

In a July 2007 memo, Turner’s primary FBI handler, Special Agent Stephen Haug, wrote that Turner “will continue to be admonished in the strongest possible terms and on a periodic basis about his rhetoric and the potential of it inciting acts of violence.

Haug went on to say that Turner would be “instructed to utilize his celebrity status to insure he continues to remind those who follow his rhetoric that such rhetoric is not intended to incite violence.

In balance,” Haug wrote, “this source’s value outweighs the discomfort associated with source’s rhetoric. Source’s unique access provides important intelligence which, if lost, would be irreplaceable.”

Turner, meanwhile, often tried to assure the FBI that his shock jock rhetoric was not serious. “The audience loves the rip-roaring radio psycho,” he wrote in one e-mail to the FBI. “They literally throw money at it. Just be confident that the personality you hear (or hear about) on radio is not real life. I have zero intention of doing anything stupid.”

Nonetheless, Turner’s statements were closely watched.

In February 2008, in the midst of the presidential primary season, Turner attracted the attention of federal officials when he turned against then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama.

I’m starting to come to the realization that it may be up to a sole person, acting alone, to make certain this guy is never allowed to hold the most powerful office in the world,” Turner wrote on his Web site. He later removed the statement.

But later that year, court records show that he contacted federal authorities to say that he had heard of a possible assassination plot by white supremacists against the president-elect.

I didn’t like Barack Obama,” Turner explained in an interview. “But he won the election.

Seven months after the possible threat to Obama, Turner was in FBI handcuffs — for allegedly threatening the Chicago judges.

Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed,” Turner wrote on his blog on June 2. “Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty.”

Turner also posted photos of the judges, their work phone numbers and office addresses as well as a map of the courthouse that pointed out “anti-truck bomb barriers.”

The word ‘deserve’ is just an opinion,” Turner later told The Record. As for posting the photos of the judges, he added: “I can’t tell you to this day how sorry I am.”

Even if he wins his federal case, Turner’s legal problems will not be over. In June, Connecticut authorities charged Turner with inciting violence against state officials who supported a proposed state law to give Roman Catholic parishioners greater control over church finances.

In each case, Turner contends his words are protected as free speech under the First Amendment. Turner’s attorney, Orozco, adds that other federal prosecutors routinely ignored his outlandish statements. “He has made other controversial remarks about judges, none of which have ever been prosecuted,” wrote Orozco in a legal brief.

“I never intended for anybody to feel threatened,” Turner said.

Longing to be heard

Whatever his intentions, it remains unclear who the real Hal Turner is.

A fraud? A serious threat to homeland security? A white supremacist? A loyal citizen trying to help the FBI? A radio showman trying to build an audience — and income — with shocking statements?

After he was arrested by FBI agents in June, Turner was sent on a journey that took him to jails in Newark, Oklahoma and Chicago — often in solitary confinement. By late September, he was transferred back to New Jersey and sent to the Hudson County Jail in Kearny. In all, he spent 119 days behind bars.

In the interviews at the Hudson County Jail, Turner offered many glimpses of his personality and motivation.

“My country needed me,” he said when asked why he accepted the FBI’s offer in June 2003 to become an informant. “I’m a loyal, patriotic decent American citizen.”

But why did he say — or hint — that some judges and other officials should be killed? Turner blames the FBI, saying that while agents never said he could threaten judges, they coached him on the limits of what he could say. As a result, Turner said he felt he had wide latitude.

“I was given specific instructions,” he said. “Here, I am in prison, betrayed.”

In one of his more controversial statements, Turner gloated over the murder of the husband and mother of a federal judge in Chicago in 2005. But Turner described his rhetoric as fake, arguing he hoped it “would solidify my anti-government credentials” among ultra-right-wing groups he was spying on.

As for hanging out with neo-Nazis and skinheads, Turner said, “That’s not me. It never has been.”

Raised in Ridgefield Park, the 47-year-old Turner labored more than a decade in a variety of positions with several moving-van companies. In 1988, while working for a moving company in Atlanta, Turner was arrested on a drug possession charge. In interviews, he said he had a cocaine addiction at the time and checked into a rehab program.

By the early 1990s, Turner moved to North Bergen and worked as a real estate agent. Within a few years, however, he began to dabble in politics, trying to beef up the Republican Party in overwhelmingly Democratic Hudson County. He also was a campaign manager in New Jersey for Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan.

Politics seemed to offer Turner something he never realized he had — a voice and a need to speak out on hot topics. Now, however, several close associates question whether that voice is authentic or just the work of someone looking for the limelight.

In 1997, when Ramapo College Finance Professor Murray Sabrin ran for governor on a libertarian platform, he hired Turner to manage his campaign. Turner was a frequent caller on WABC’s popular talk radio shows with Bob Grant and Sean Hannity — “Hal from North Bergen,” as he came to be known.

Turner surely had a conservative flair, especially on such issues as abortion and immigration. But Sabrin noticed a complete shift after Turner started his own talk radio show. In particular, Sabrin, who is Jewish, found some of Turner’s remarks to be anti-Semitic.

People have a public face and a private face,” said Sabrin. “Everything that he is doing now is a complete 180-degree shift. It’s totally opposite from what I knew. I don’t know where this is coming from. I certainly wouldn’t have tolerated it.”

For several years, the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based civil rights group, has regularly monitored Turner’s radio broadcasts and blog. Indeed, the center was one of the first organizations to raise questions that Turner might be an FBI informant.

Hearing now that Turner admits to being an informant, the center’s director of research, Heidi Beirich, was especially critical of the FBI. “We’ve never seen anything like this with informants. It’s essentially idiotic on the part of the FBI. Anybody who spent two seconds looking at Hal Turner’s Web site would know he is a wild hare,” she said.

Indeed, Turner’s own recounting of his life with the FBI does not always mirror what records show he did.

Turner, for example, says the FBI asked him to participate in a mission to plug leaks of information inside the Department of Justice to a variety of groups including the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti Defamation League. Turner also says the FBI asked him to specifically criticize such African-American leaders as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

“I was supposed to be a counterbalance to Sharpton,” Turner said.

Officially, the FBI declined comment on those unproven stories by Turner. The documents bear no trace of those operations.

Expedition to Brazil

Unofficially, FBI and other federal officials expressed a mix of dismay and outright anger when told of Turner’s claims of being coached to make provocative statements.

Absurd,” said one. Another added: “And pigs will fly beginning with the next full moon. It never happened.”

During interviews with The Record, Turner was at times unclear on some details. FBI records indicate, for example, that he did not become an informant until June 2003; Turner originally said he was recruited by federal agents in 2002, but later said he was mistaken.

Along with Haug of the FBI, his other regular contact was Leonard Nerbetski, a New Jersey State Police detective assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Requests to interview Haug and Nerbetski were turned town by the FBI and by the state police.

In an early communication, Turner reported to the FBI about a meeting in Elmwood Park by the National Alliance. A few months after that, FBI records show that Turner was reaching out to several national leaders of the alliance.

FBI memos indicate that the bureau had appropriated as much as $100,000 for Turner’s work as an informant.

“It was good money,” said Turner, who would not say how much he was ultimately paid by the FBI.

Turner said he was earning about $15,000 a month from his suddenly popular radio show and blog.

As 2004 wore on, Turner found himself reporting to the FBI about a possible theft of evidence in a Bergen County drug case and about an attempt to set up a chapter of the Aryan Nations in northern New Jersey.

A year later, with the FBI paying for his visa and passport renewal, Turner embarked on his most ambitious mission — to confer with a wealthy white supremacist in Brazil who was considering making a $1 million donation to his American counterparts.

While in Brazil, Turner also reported meeting a World War II German Luftwaffe flying ace and linking up with a representative of the Brazilian Arab Society, who discussed a plan to ship $10 million in consumer goods to anti-American Iraqi resistance fighters.

After Turner returned to New Jersey, the records show that the FBI investigated the Arab Society representative and even reached out to U.S. officials in Brazil for help in monitoring his activities. But it’s not clear if the $10 million shipment was attempted.

The $1 million donation also never materialized, records show. The Brazilian benefactor backed out of the deal when an American white supremacist did not accompany Turner on the trip.

Records indicate the FBI wanted Turner to return to Brazil to spy on white-supremacist training there. But Turner never went. While in Brazil, Turner said, he carried a gun for protection, which was not authorized by the FBI.

Only a few weeks after returning to the United States from Brazil, Turner again found controversy. In a radio broadcast, he targeted African-Americans.

A full day of violence against blacks would be a really nice thing,” he said.

Turner went on to call for “lynchings, church burnings, drive-by shootings and bombings to put these subhuman animals back in their place,” according to a report complied by the Anti-Defamation League.

The episode illustrates the complicated relationship between the FBI and Turner. Despite Turner’s racist radio rhetoric, the FBI also valued his undercover work — and was apparently willing to take a risk with him again — and pay him, too.

For example, a July 2005 memo by the FBI said Turner had been paid $10,365 in the previous fiscal year and that he “provided information which continues to be highly accurate and sensitive.

Turner continued to reach out intermittently to the FBI — with tips including a possible KKK murder plot — until June 2, 2009, the day he posted the alleged threats on his blog about the Chicago judges.

In an e-mail that day to the FBI, Turner says he has heard reports that agents had interviewed skinheads and others about him.

“Am I unapproachable?” Turner asked in the e-mail. “Geez, I’d think by now I would have proved myself. It’s not like I’m gonna go postal or anything.”

Three weeks later, Turner was arrested.

Four months after that, Turner, unshaven and wearing frayed green prison garb and fumbling with a loose tooth, sat in an interview room at the Hudson County Jail and pondered his journey — from shock jock to FBI informant to inmate charged with a serious federal crime.

I can’t believe this is happening to me,” he said.Records show feds used ultra-right radio host for years
