Typical right-wing extremist modus operandi; if they don't get their way on something, they threaten to murder them.
Naturally he's popular with white supremacist groups.
You got the guns tough guys, bring it on and let's see where it gets you.
U.S. radio host gets prison for threatening judges
NEW YORK | Tue Dec 21, 2010 4:33pm EST
Dec 21 (Reuters)-
A right-wing Internet radio host was sentenced on Tuesday to 33 months in prison for threatening the lives of three Chicago federal appeals court judges after they upheld a local gun control law.
Harold Turner, 48, was convicted by a jury in August in Brooklyn, New York, federal court following two mistrials. He was arrested in June
2009 and charged with one count of threatening to assault or murder the three judges.
Turner used his radio broadcasts to target Judges Frank Easterbrook, Richard Posner and William Bauer of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
7th Circuit in Chicago, who had upheld a local handgun law.
He said they had acted in "a manner so sleazy and cunning as to deserve the ultimate punishment." He called for their murder and published their photographs and work addresses online.
"Turner's harsh words about these targeted judges, launched by Turner to an audience containing members of violent and extreme groups,
prompted the United States Marshal's Service to assign protective details to many of the judges," court documents said.
Turner, of North Bergen , New Jersey, worked as an FBI source between 2003 and 2007, U.S. prosecutors said, due to his "popularity with and access to white supremacist groups."

You'll find wingnuts on both edges of the political spectrum. Does anybody remember the Black Panthers at a Philly polling place? Watch the video of him hating ALL white people and how their babies should all be killed.
So the guy here is just another nut job. One of many. And this Conservative says GOOD! He's going to prison!

I don't disagree with your premise or conclusion.
However I don't know of any Black Panther's with radio shows reaching audiences of hundreds of thousands or even millions of people.
