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.
