Kevin Barrett Threatens Violence Against Fox News

A couple of months ago Fox News host Bill O'Reilly made the following comment about part-time professor and "Scholar" for 9/11 "Truth" Kevin Barrett:

This guy would have been gone at Boston University, my alma mater, in a heartbeat. The Chancellor there, John Silber, would of--would have--this guy'd be in the Charles River floating down, you know, toward the harbor.

Even though O'Reilly appears to have been saying nothing more than Barrett would have been kicked out if he taught at Boston U, this immediately received an indignant press release from Jim Fetzer:

FOX COMMENTATOR THREATENS 9/11 ACTIVIST

O'Reilly suggests he should be "floating in the river"

Fetzer, incredibly, went on to claim that this was somehow a direct threat to Barrett's life:

"When public threats can be made to a citizen's life for expressing his opinions on a controversial topic and neither the government nor the media respond," he observed, "that is a sure sign we are living in a fascist state."


Recently though, while filling in for Fetzer's radio show on RBN "paranoia" radio, Barrett made rather more explicit threats against Fox News:

O'Reilly doesn't like that, and neither does the other guys at Fox News. In fact they're feeling pretty threatened right now and I would be too if I was in their shoes because they're setting themselves up for complicity in high treason and mass murder charges. When this thing hits the fan, the leadership in our nation's corporate media may just end up dangling from the end of a rope.

Somehow I doubt Fetzer is going to issue a press release denouncing him.

That's strange, it seems like Fox News was giving these nuts the most coverage.

And that's why they truly suck. They're living stereotypes of the crazy paranoid hate-filled liberals, particularly the "scholars for twoof" who are all tenured professor douchebags that reinforce the myth that higher education is somehow bad for you cause you get brainwashed.

There's a reason FoxNews and the more conservative branches of the media eat these dumb fucks up. They make the opposition look bad by association.

When Retardo the Clown with an "Investigate 9/11" tshirt starts issuing legitimate gripes about the President (war, rights being eroded, other forms of incompetence, etc), they automatically become associated as liberals or people who have an axe to grind with the President for any of the MANY MANY things he's fucked up.

Barrett is saying people could be tried for crimes and held accountable under the rule of law. O'Reilly's praising the notion of a crackpot University Chancellor drowning someone in a river. ????? You don't see the difference.

joan,

Barrett is threatening to hang people in the event that their pathetic little revolution gets off the ground.

That's a threat, son.

The guy appears to have completely lost his mind.

...while filling in for Fetzer's radio show on RBN...

This was the same October 14th show that featured guest John Kaminski who Barrett praised as a leading Truther. The whole of the 2nd hour of that show is genuinely worth listening to, as Kaminski dissolves into ranting and utterly deranged anti-semitism. And no, I don't mean criticism of Israel: I mean describing Judaism as a "5000 year old organised crime family" and Jews generally as responsible for most human ills. Barrett, to his credit, handles this well - he challenges Kaminski thoughtfully, disagrees with him, provides counter-examples to Kaminiski's wild generalisations and eventually cuts him off. What astonishes me is that Barrett didn't realise his guest is anti-semitic. Go to the man's web site and look at, say, the latest 10 articles he's written.

There you will find such polemics as... 'Jews Don't Believe in Freedom of Speech' and 'The Jewish war on freedom of speech', which manage to combine anti-semitism and holocaust denial, a rant about assorted "Jewish perfidy", read how American society has been "pornographized by Jewish education, Jewish psychology, Jewish media, Jewish government, and above all, Jewish money ... What Jews have done to the world is unconscionable.", he even seems to have something against Einstein in 'Judaism is Madness' describing how "your very concepts of space and time and of weights and measures and particularly values have been altered by this same shadowy tribe that filters like a virus down through history", etc, etc...

So does this mean that if Bill O'Reilly makes a threat that you should be "floating down the river", PD, that you are going to come to the USA and murder him. Will you admit this on the record? I wanna snippet for my new blog...lol
