In the wake of the takeover of a Federal wildlife refuge building in Oregon, Fox News has been presenting far-right radio talk show host Pete Santilli as a “movement spokesman” for the group. He fully supports the group that has barricaded themselves in the building, of course. But as Media Matters notes, this is an extremist who once said he wanted to shoot Hillary Clinton “right in the vajayjay.” And that’s not all:
SANTILLI: I’m going to call this financial terrorism on this October 7, 2013, our people, OK, not our government, we are the government, the people that are running our credit cards, okay, on our behalf are committing financial terrorism against the American people. That right there is an act of war, is an act of terroristic war upon the American people, and we will respond.
And I would say at this point in time, ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to go so far as to say this: that if we were to respond even violently with the Second Amendment, if we were to respond violently with the Second Amendment it would be the equivalent of us going out and doing a preemptive strike on our foreign enemies. That that would be justified at this point because of the war that has been perpetrated upon our American people. That’s one instance. Financial terrorism.
SANTILLI: If the people of America are too lethargic and stupid to understand what I just described and they don’t want to save their country this weekend, guess what, that is not going to stop our country from being saved. OK, our country will be saved. There is a select few of us, we’ll call them Three Percenters that will take the next logical step to stop our domestic enemies. It will be stopped, I’m going to say this, this is not a threat. We will defend our nation to the absolute death.
I’m prepared myself to give my life in this effort as a United States Marine.
Yep, he fits right in. He’s also a 9/11 truther:
Call me a “conspiracy realist”, but never call me a theorist until you have had the chance to learn what facts I have learned. For instance (this may be too much for the un-awakened mind), look at the falling World Center Towers on 9-11, and ask yourself; how does falling steel and concrete turn to dust in mid air? What I have learned is something that has forever changed me as it will you. The World Trade Center towers were turned to dust in mid air by a very powerful energy source. Do I know what source caused it; absolutely not, but I know that there is indisputable evidence of the following:
§ We’ve all been under a PSY-OP (psychological warfare operation) since 9-11
§ The towers were turned to dust in mid-air, 2 were hit by planes and 7 buildings disappeared with little debris remaining on the ground
§ Free energy technology exists, but the oil & war industry cannot afford to tell us [Media Matters, 5/29/13]
Par for the course.
