Douchebag Police Chief Now Claims He Was Working for the Feds

Remember Mark Kessler, the far-right douchebag police chief from Gilberton, Pennsylvania who was fired after making a bunch of violent videos firing guns at “libtards”? He now claims that it was all an act, that he was working with unnamed federal agencies to draw potential right-wing terrorists out of the woodwork so they could be arrested. He said this on the Alan Colmes show on Tuesday.

Mark Kessler, known for his “libtard” videos on YouTube, said that he created the videos for government agencies (intelligence) “in order to attract the worst of the worst” which subsequently led to the arrest of militia-style group members with a terrorist bent.

“When I say groups, I’m talking about Second Amendment groups, patriot groups, alleged patriot groups, militia groups,” he said.

Kessler added that Sovereign Citizens into the mix of extremist groups.

Kessler said of the profanity-laced videos, “They were put out by me and they were put out by the people that I worked for at the time.”

“Were you not working for the police department of Gilberton, PA?” Colmes asked.

“No I wasn’t,” Kessler said.

Colmes asked, “Were you working for the federal government?”

Kessler responded, “Yes, I can’t say what agency.”

Kessler said he couldn’t give the details of which agency he worked for due to pending investigations. The former police chief said he couldn’t divulge his real motivations for the videos at the time because “it was bigger than me.”

He told Colmes that this is the first time this has been revealed. When asked what was in it for him, he said, “I got to save a lot of lives.”

Kessler went on to say, “I’m happy to say that we took down several plotted attacks that didn’t go through, we took down a group in Georgia. We took down a group in Texas.”

Colmes asked, “Can you name any of the groups you took down?”

” The Triple X Minutemen is one group,” Kessler said.

Except that group was taken down because they posted on Facebook about their plans. There is no evidence that Kessler had anything to do with it. I’m calling bullshit on this one. Until there’s some actual evidence of this, I’m assuming that this guy is completely full of shit and angling for a book deal.

    Good luck! Does he know anything about publishing? There’s no margin in coloring books.

    Ah, the old “I was really a secret agent” shtick, classic, I’ll need to remember that one. I’m not really an asshole, I’m actually a super secret spy working to take down SPECTRE!

    Oh, you people are so cynical. The good ex-chief is clearly another Chuck Barris.

    According to this article, Kessler wrote this retraction on his Facebook page:

    “Haaaaaaaa you were all punked hahahaha Alan Colmes is a retard fag liberal ! That idiot bought the story hook line and sinker ! As did so many other !! Damn I knew It would get some play but wow ! I didn’t think I was that famous hahahaga ! It was complete bullshit ! But hey thanks for busting balls ! Alan Colmes was punked !!!! N he fell for it !! I couldn’t resist throw more fule on the Fire hahahaga settle down people ! Maybe it wasn’t the best prank but It made me laugh! I got the conversation started again ! Theirs no way in hell I would do any of that shit ! I though it was funny though ! Sorry if anyone got upset !!! I didn’t think it would of blew up like that but oh well hahahahaha”

    But of course, there are those who believe he’s still lying to protect his “secret agent man” cover. I find that extremely doubtful.

    I get the impression that he’s trying to be the idiotic and unfunny Andy Kaufman.

  • Al Dente

    So he’s a secret agent who isn’t really a secret agent, it’s all a plot to do something or other. The famous quote comes to mind:

    Fool me once, shame on, shame on you. Fool me, can’t get fooled again.

    Ed’s calling bullshit, I’m calling batshit. Wonderful world he lives in. Pity it’s not real.

    Just another wannabe badass trying to borrow glory from other people. Next up? “I was the unknown member of Seal Team 6…”

    Let me get this straight. He’s saying that his own behavior and belief system are highly attractive to would-be terrorists, and he thinks someone else is the fool?

  • Reginald Selkirk

    I don’t believe him. I suspect he was working for the reptoid aliens instead.

  • grumpyoldfart

    And the agency that employed him just left him out in the cold? That’s bullshit right there.

    There’s no way an undercover agency is going to leave a knowledgeable agent out in the open and spilling the beans on public radio and TV.

    @Loqi #6

    I get the impression that Kessler is trying to set up his “not guilty by reason of insanity” defense. Of course it is hard to imagine that he has the intellect to do that properly given the Facebook quote kosk1138 mentions in #4 which would kind of work against that plea.

    Well that’s hil-AR-i-ous. But not as funny as that time he got fired.

    Surely among the all-time top 100 moments in wingnut history:

    http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2013/10/gilberton_kessler_gun_control.html

    Kessler brought an attorney and a bunch of supporters bristling with weapons to a termination hearing. The room was packed wall-to-wall. One of his supporters dropped a loaded handgun on the tile floor, at which point Kessler’s own lawyer insisted the hearing reconvene in a gun-free zone.
