Hal Turner in His Own Words

Posted: January 17, 2008

'The following quotations are from Hal Turner's Web site and Internet radio show.

(All caps are in the originals.)

December 14, 2007: "I am looking for volunteers from the Klan, Aryan Nations, Nazis and Skinheads to join me in Baltimore this weekend for some good old vigilante justice. We will ride the same buses where the attacks took place, looking for the perps. If we find them - or any other upity [sic] negroes [sic] looking for trouble - we will 'take care of business' vigilante-style, in the street.  See how the negroes [sic] like it when they finally face the original 'Boyz in the Hood.'"

December 9, 2007: In response to a shooting at a training center dormitory for Christian missionaries, Turner wrote, "CRAZED JEW SHOOTS CHRISTIANS! KIKE WALKS INTO DENVER CHRISTIAN MISSION, STARTS SHOOTING.  HUNT DOWN THIS FILTHY KIKE AND STICK HIM IN AN OVEN!"  

November 15, 2007: "I think the FBI Indianapolis Division (covering Evansville) should be physically surrounded by Patriots armed with guns and the LIBERTY DOLLARS and BULLION be recovered by any means necessary."  

November 13, 2007: "I advocate SPITTING ON JEWS when anyone sees them on the street. Let's all start spitting on jews [sic] immediately. I myself am doing it starting today. In fact, I think we ought to line up outside every local Synagogue every Saturday and spit on the jews [sic] who enter. Then spit on them again as they leave. If this behavior is good enough for jews [sic] in Israel to do to Christians, then it must be good enough for Christians to do to jews [sic]. Let's get it done." 

November 9, 2007: Under the headline,"DEAR JEWS AND OTHER NON-CHRISTIANS AS WE APPROACH THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, PRACTICE TOLERANCE….," Turner wrote: "Anyone who goes after Christian seasonal celebrations will be made to answer to us... We don't want to have to show up at anyones [sic] house as they're coming home or leaving, to beat the hell out of them on their own front lawn; we don't want to have to grab anyone on their lunch break at work and break their legs, crack their skull open with a baseball bat, or burn down their home or office. We certainly don't want to have to take up sniper positions outside quiet residential areas in the dark of night with high powered rifles and put a rifle shot through anyone resting comfortably in their home. Whether or not any of that happens this year is solely up to you. Leave us alone and we'll leave you alone. Pick on us --- and we may feel compelled to f--king destroy you."

October 30, 2007: Under the headline, " SENATE MAJORITY LEADER HARRY REID SAID TO BE PREPARING YET ANOTHER AMNESTY PROPOSAL FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS!, Turner wrote: " I ask the People of the State of Nevada to travel to Senator Reid's home and make clear to him the price of betraying our sovereign Will. I ask the People of Nevada to send Senator Reid the kind of message he cannot mistake….Don't think I'm talking out of my ass either. The last time I focused on a federal official like this, it was US District Judge Joan Humphrey-Lefkow of Chicago. I commented on my show that one of her rulings made her worthy of being killed. Some time later, someone broke into her home and slaughtered her mother and husband. The killer ultimately took his own life rather than be arrested, so there was no way to ever know if I actually influenced him to kill. Do we really have to test that possibility again? I'd rather not; but I recognize doing so is a tool available to me."  

October 24, 2007: "And I think that we have arrived at a time when one or more of these 44 (later amended to 52) defiant U.S. Senators needs to get cracked in the skull with a baseball bat, needs to get a bullet through the brain. They have betrayed us AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. IT IS TIME FOR SOMEONE TO PAY A PRICE AN EXAMPLE TO THE OTHERS.…"  

October 22, 2007: Under the heading, "Chief of International Monetary Fund Warns of U.S Dollar collapse," Turner wrote, "I have all the home addresses of folks in Congress, the Senate, the President's Cabinet, as well as all the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, all the jew [sic] Boards of Directors of the biggest banks and investment houses in the country. . . . where they live, where they go to temple. . . . I intend to bring such a shit storm down on these people that history will record what happens for all eternity! When these people are finally made an example of, others throughout eternity will dread doing what they did fearing the same result. If I play my hand right, what I achieve could make the Holocaust look like child's play."  

October 2, 2007: "Jews love to complain about the 'Holocaust.' Let me tell you, there was no Holocaust in World War 2 -- but rest assured, there most certainly IS GOING TO BE a holocaust. I look forward to participating with zeal."  

September 19, 2007: "And if we're going to throw the law out the window, then there are some laws I'd like to ignore and I will tell you what law I'd like to ignore. I would like to ignore the law that says I cannot assassinate elected politicians. Because I gotta tell you folks, I want to go put bullets in some of these people. I want to assassinate some elected officials because I object to some of the things they've been doing down there…."  

September 17, 2007: Under the headline, "A POLL: KILL SENATORS? HUNDREDS AGREE THAT CRACKING SENATOR'S HEADS WITH A BASEBALL BAT, FIRE BOMBING THEIR OFFICES, TRUCK BOMBING THE U.S. CAPITOL OR MACHINE GUNNING SENATORS TO DEATH ARE OPTIONS OVER ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY! WHAT DO YOU THINK? TAKE THE POLL BELOW," Turner elaborated, "What 'Communication' Will Congress Best Understand? What method of 'Communication' would be best understood by members of the United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate so they know not to give ILLEGAL ALIENS Amnesty? Walk up to them on the street and Hit them in the face with brass knuckles until they're unconscious? Crack their skull open with a baseball bat? Fire Bomb their Disrict [sic] Offices as a warning; then their private homes if they go ahead with the plan? Park several Timothy McVeigh type truck bombs next to the House and Senate Office Buildings and Detonate them? Pull a fire alarm in the U.S. Capitol and Machine gun them to death as they evacuate? Keep writing letters (they ignore) urging against this plan?"  

September 1, 2007: "I have repeatedly said that anyone who sides with Illegal Aliens against the United States is a Traitor to America who should face severe consequences. That time has now come. To that end, I declare the Leadership of the AFL-CIO to be Domestic Enemies of the United States. In my opinion, the leadership of the AFL-CIO deserves to be hunted down and dealt with for their disloyalty to America and ferocious support of those who have invaded our country illegally. Further, I believe that the ruling of Judge Maxine Chesney is such a gross betrayal of America, that she should be paid a visit at her home by loyal Americans to suddenly, dramatically and irreversibly resolve her disgusting disloyalty to our nation."

June 28, 2007: "Well, I think we have arrived at a time in America where we have miserable sons-of-bitches running the government in this country. I think it's time they face the prospect of whether or not THEY want to die for their cause.… So, I would ask the people who support this immigration bill, are you ready to die for open borders?  Are you willing to die for cheap labor? How many of you are willing to die for your K Street lobbyists?" 

June 18, 2007: "I think inter-racial couples deserve to be killed on site. The thing is, whenever one decides to kill such a couple, they must kill the non-white MALE first. If they kill the white female first, the non-white male runs away too fast to get!"  


June 13, 2007: Regarding amnesty for immigrants, "It is the god-damned businesses that are pushing the issue. They want the cheap labor…I would say to some of you business people, especially you folks in the Chamber of Commerce, you don't have Secret Service protection. We can catch you coming out of your office and bust your f--kin' skull open with a baseball bat…."  

June 13, 2007: "There's going to be a lot of violence in this country and there's going to be a lot of bloodshed. You know, I advocate violence as a means and I advocate the use of violence as a tool.  People say violence doesn't solve anything. They're wrong. Violence solves everything. You can argue with someone till you're blue in the face. They just won't change their point of view and if you knock the living shit out of them, then they change their view…I've done it. It works, and I encourage you to do it. We need a lot more violence to straighten up America. It's going to take a lot of extreme violence to straighten up America. We're probably going to have to kill a lot of elected public officials, Senators, Congressmen. And you guys at the State level too, like State Assemblymen, hey we've got your number too, and you're a helluva lot easier to get to. You don't even get State Police protection. If somebody's unhappy with you, they can walk up to your property and hit you in the face with a two by four as you're coming out of the house to go to work in the morning."

May 23, 2007: Regarding Knoxville, Tennessee, rally in wake of the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome who were allegedly killed by a group of black men,  "I am going to remind the White race of what worked better for us in the past than our kindness, what worked better for us was a rope.… it is time to begin lynching Blacks in that city to restore peace and order for the decent White people... It is time to remind the lower races of who's boss, and the way we need to do that is by utilizing what worked in the past. God knows we've tried other approaches."  

April 4, 2007: "It's got to stop and we're the ones that's going to have to stop it! It's going to take extreme ways to clean up the mess this country's in. It's going to take extreme violence. I think we're going to have to assassinate a whole bunch of congressman, assassinate a whole bunch of Senators, maybe even kill the President. We shouldn't be afraid to use extreme ways, because extreme ways have served us well in the past."  

March 21, 2007: "We are being deliberately betrayed on an unprecedented scale by our own goddamned government and if the American people were to find out about this from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, the Associated Press and the newspapers, those dirty bastards in Washington would be assassinated, which, in my opinion, is exactly what they deserve. I wouldn't shed a tear if everyone of those sons of bitches in the United States Congress was gunned down with bullets to the head tomorrow, because that's what I think they deserve! These scumbag mother f--kers are selling out our country to enrich themselves and to enrich their business buddies. They don't give a shit about you, they don't give a shit about me…all they care about is their wallet.  IT'S TIME THEY CARE ABOUT BULLETS FLYING! Because we should be killing these sons of bitches for this type of betrayal!"


April 1, 2006: These filthy, disease ridden, two-legged bags of human debris are too stupid to believe....Just think, America, if we bring enough of them here, they can do for America exactly what they did for Mexico! Turn our whole country into a crime-ridden, drug infested slum....These people are sub-human. I would love it if folks who do have such weapons, used them on the crowds on April 10 [at immigration rallies]. I advocate machine gunning these invaders to death at their rallies!

March 31, 2006: Our forefathers didn't need permission from the government to kill invading Mexicans at the time of the Alamo and WE don't need government permission to kill them now. These people are domestic enemies and should be attacked with force and violence.

March 29, 2006: They come here against our laws, they breed like wild animals while we white Americans have been going about our affairs, earning money, paying our bills and such....It is time to fight. To kill such invaders....If you don't fight AND don't support those of us who do, when we're done with them, we can come for you.

March 27, 2006: Over 1000 Americans, polled over a two week period, selected direct physical attacks against Congressmen and Senators as the best way to convey our disdain for immigration....From hitting them in the face with brass knuckles, to detonating truck bombs outside Capitol office buildings, Americans are saying they are fed-up with immigration.

March 26, 2006: Clean your guns. Have plenty of ammunition. April 10 is the day we fight....Wherever thousands of illegal aliens gather is the place. This is the perfect scenario, opportunity and obligation for LONE WOLF action....Go to the area well in advance, scope out several places to position yourself then do what has to be done....I think it would be correct for Military members to fly strafing runs against the assembled hordes. They wouldn't have to worry about being Court Martialed and sentenced to death; the U.S. Military hasn't executed a member since April 13, 1961!....I would love to see private pilots come in low, dump their fuel over the crowds and someone near the crowds throw a flare to ignite the fuel!

March 23, 2006: I think someone ought to tell Senator [Hillary] Clinton about some of the VIOLENT methods folks voted to employ upon Senators and Congressmen in THIS poll....We wouldn't want to see her pretty face ruined from brass knuckles or her skull cracked open with a baseball bat. Although I wouldn't shed a tear of those things happened.

March 20, 2006: Hey U.S. Military Members: Is THIS what you signed-up for? To DIE for ISRAEL? Filthy Jews in a filthy country that HATE your Christianity and use you as cannon fodder? Jews that are so disgusting they've been thrown out of every country on earth throughout history?....In the interest of self preservation I advocate that the United States Military do what is necessary regarding their rogue Commander In Chief. You know what has to be done....Better yet, put him in Air Force One, fly him to Israel, give him a parachute and throw him out over that shithole.

March 17, 2006: To my knowledge, mine is the only web site in the world that talks about killing Supreme Court justices and members of Congress in THIS piece....I actually use the term "patriotic assassination!"....So, here it is for all to see. The corridors of power DO IN FACT tremble at what is spoken on this web site and on my radio show. We ARE being heard. They apparently FEAR us.

March 13, 2006: I think a vigilante execution of the federal prosecutor would send the right message to other U.S. Attorneys and their underlings that they can be gotten to and made to pay a terrible price when they screw up. Mark down the name of this federal prosecutor (just in case).

February 6, 2006: We Christians would do well to adopt the Muslim strategy. When someone sues to remove the Ten Commandments from a public area, attack, beat and maybe even KILL them. When a federal appeals court rules that Christian Nativity Scenes in New York Schools can be banned while Jew Menorrah's [sic] a Muslim Crescents can remain in the same schools, the Judges on that court should be attacked, beaten and if necessary, KILLED. When someone sues to halt Christian public prayers at football games, school events or local town meetings, that person should be attacked, beaten and if need be, KILLED. Violence works. It makes people think twice before doing something to a particular [sic] person or group of people.

January 11, 2006: Following a Moscow synagogue stabbing of nine Jews:, I just want to take a moment to publicly applaud this action. Almighty God himself has commanded us to be at war with Satan and the spawn of Satan, and this man in Russia exercised that obligation today. I'm proud of him! Congratulations on the STABBING of FILTHY JEWS at a synagogue of Satan, Moscow, Russia!"

December 6, 2005 Following the beating of Professor Paul Mirecki after he made derogatory remarks about Christian fundamentalists and intelligent design:, I am proud to announce that a Kansas College Professor has become the first Christian Basher to be physically beaten for his derision of our beliefs....We are now resorting to the use of force and violence. Whether YOU are among those who are beaten is solely up to you. Leave Christianity alone and you will live in peace. Attack Christianity, it's [sic] symbols or traditions and you put yourself at personal risk of severe consequences....If any of you know of any other people who need a beating over this issue kindly e-mail the details to me.

November 11, 2005: Under the headline, "KIKE KIDS HARASS SENIOR CITIZENS SURROUND HOME OF 81 AND 82 YEAR OLD MEN, TAUNTING THEM ABOUT WORLD WAR 2!", Turner wrote: "Claiming the men were guards at a Nazi camp 60 years ago, these savage jew [sic] pigs surrounded the home and taunted the men! These high school imbeciles were incited to this action by a Rabbi; the same type that incited the Crucifixion of Christ! These aggressive Yids show no mercy; not even for senior citizens in their eighties! These jews [sic] are truly SCUM."

November 11, 2005: Under the headline, "KIKE KIDS HARASS SENIOR CITIZENS SURROUND HOME OF 81 AND 82 YEAR OLD MEN, TAUNTING THEM ABOUT WORLD WAR 2!", Turner wrote: "Claiming the men were guards at a Nazi camp 60 years ago, these savage jew [sic] pigs surrounded the home and taunted the men! These high school imbeciles were incited to this action by a Rabbi; the same type that incited the Crucifixion of Christ! These aggressive Yids show no mercy; not even for senior citizens in their eighties! These jews [sic] are truly SCUM."

November 6, 2005:    Commenting on the North African immigrant riots in France:

"I love the way the media tries to divert attention from who is really doing all this harm: SAVAGE NEGRO BEASTS! They are allowed into a civilized, white, first-world country. They cannot fit in because they simply do not have the genetic make-up to assimilate properly. Then they get angry that they cannot keep up; with rioting, pillaging and burning the inevitable result. When will the politically-correct crowd realize this irrefutable fact and stop pushing their stupid multi-culturalism on the civilized world?"

October 31, 2005:  "Slowly but surely we are headed toward the solution that I have been advocating for years: KILL ILLEGAL ALIENS AS THEY CROSS INTO THE U.S. When the stench of rotting corpses gets bad enough, the rest will stay away."

One of Turner's supporters, added: "It's time to assemble private, hunter teams that go around "cleaning up the neighborhood" the old fashioned way - through extreme violence!"

October 30, 2005:  "HALLOWEEN IS THE PERFECT TIME OF THE YEAR TO COMMIT KILLINGS! ...Everyone is expecting folks to be dressed-up in costumes; so if you were to do so, it would not be abnormal. This is the PERFECT opportunity to go kill whomever needs killing; to do so in public and not worry about being seen because you can be in costume with facial make-up not just a mask. Of course, have a second costume stashed somewhere so you can change quick and not be captured by the cops. Bang, target killed. Swoop into nearby alley way, change costumes, walk away casually. It is my earnest hope that a lot of this country's problems will be solved this way tomorrow. Remember, a properly placed bullet can change the world!"

October 27, 2005:  "What I want to say to Black Americans, and I mean this, I mean this...your ancestors came here against their will in chains. If the Black community does not clean up its act and reign [sic] in its hoodlums...all of you and I mean *all* of you, can leave here the same way. That's right, against your will and in chains.  Think we can't do it?  Look at the Indians.  All we have to do is play cowboys and Indians..see where they are?  Well, the time is rapidly approaching where we're going to play cowboys and niggers. Get the picture."

October 11, 2005:  "For the second time in a week, multiple Mexicans have been found shot dead just inside the U.S. Border. ! I ADVOCATE KILLING MORE OF THEM!   For years I have been publicly advocating on my radio show and this web site, that Mexican illegal aliens be SHOT DEAD as they cross into the U.S. illegally. Now, they ARE being shot dead! I hope my rhetoric contributed to their deaths. I plant the seeds verbally and the seeds grow in the minds of others…I am proud to advocate even MORE killings! Illegal aliens should be KILLED as soon as they cross the border into the U.S…. Water stations placed in the desert should be poisoned. When enough of the illegals are KILLED, the rest will get the message not to come here. Death is a great deterrent! Even better is that it takes around 36 hours before cops even find the dead bodies. You can go on "safari" to kill dozens of these brown-skinned, sub-human animals and be long gone before the cops ever find your handy work."

October 5, 2005: "I long for the day that an American conservative does to an American President what a Jewish conservative did to Yitzhak Rabin in Israel."


September 25, 2005:  "Since Israel feels it is OK to bomb schools that raise money for causes it doesn't like, then I guess it would be OK to bomb jewish [sic] Yeshivas that raise money for things we don't like?!?!?!? After all, if schools are now legitimate military targets for Israel, they must then be legitimate military targets for everyone. Right? Maybe we should start drawing up lists of Jewish Yeshivas here in the United States?"

One of Turner's supporters, SpartanWhite Knight responded to Turner's comments: "Its [sic] like I always say, little Jew bastards grow up to be big Jew devils. If arabs [sic] living in America were to bomb exclusive Jew schools, neighborhoods and gated communities in America in "retaliation", things would be as they ought to be."  Another supporter, Rumplestiltskin, "encouraged people to attack synagogues in New Jersey.  In a previous email on July 18, Rumplestiltskin provided the addresses of specific yeshivas in New Jersey, in case Al Qaeda needed a Jewish target to attack.

September 20, 2005:  On the New York Police Department for breaking up an unauthorized anti-war rally:  "Your bullet-resistance vests will not protect you from 30-06 rifles...None of us care if your police department, District Attorneys or Supreme Court Judges like it; you will all obey or you can be forced to obey…"

September 14, 2005:   Discussing the judge who ruled that the "Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional:  "Let me just take this opportunity to remind U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton, that I, me, Hal Turner, uttered on this radio show that a ruling that had been made by a different Federal Judge, Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, in Chicago...I uttered that her ruling made her worthy of being killed and in March of this year her family was murdered.  I don't like this ruling that was issued by U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton in San Francisco, saying that the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional. I hope I don't have to make a similar utterance about Judge Karlton like I made about Judge Lefkow.  You people on the Federal Bench think you can't be gotten *can* [asterisks in original] be gotten to."

July 15, 2005:   "In my opinion it's time to start ASSASSINATING MEXICAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS …I once again advocate using EXTREME VIOLENCE against Mexicans.  They should be shot and killed while crossing into this country illegally.  Once they're dead, their heads should be cut off and put on pike poles as a warning to others. Any water stations placed in the desert by good samaritans should be intentionally poisoned."

June 5, 2005:  "These filthy Israeli scum deserve to be annihilated…If I got my hands on a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon, I would be more than willing to unleash it upon Israel!  Short of that, it is my earnest hope that jews [sic] will be attacked everywhere in the world.  I hope they are gunned down in the street in drive-by shootings.  I hope their businesses are wrecked.  I hope their synagogues (of satan) and Yeshivas are bombed into rubble.  I hope their neighborhoods are destroyed.  I advocate extreme violence against Zionist jews [sic] wherever they are in the world."

June 3, 2005:  "Let me blunt; by 'violence' I mean KILLING elected officials and judges whose sinister, evil exercise of power has struck at the very heart of what America really is : A Constitutional Republic based upon White Christian values…I am ready to do what's needed.  Are you?"

May 17, 2005: About the mayor of Denver because the restaurant the mayor owned employed an illegal alien who allegedly murdered one cop and wounded another, both of whom were moonlighting as security for a private establishment:  "I think the Mayor's employing of this illegal alien (and up to 100 others in a restaurant) and his policy of affording sanctuary to other illegal aliens makes Mayor John Hickenlooper worthy of being KILLED.  I sincerely hope that someone takes a rifle with a scope and puts a bullet through Mayor Hickenloopers head.  If that's too hard, someone should catch him walking on the street or eating in a restaurant and stab him in the chest, around the third button down form the neck?  This generally pierces the heart killing someone instantly."

May 15, 2005:   Instead of fighting Muslims, we Christians should be rounding up jews [sic] and killing them here in America.  We should bomb their Synagogues, burn down their Yeshivas and violently attack them on the street and in their places of business.   I advocate extreme violence against jews [sic] because their history as a people make them worthy of being killed. Jews are the lowest form of sub-human garbage. They deserve to be killed."

I urge the hunting and killing of all illegal aliens as they cross the border into America.  I implore Americans to arm themselves with sniper rifles and night vision scopes and kill every Mexican man woman and child who illegally crosses the U.S border.  I advocate extreme violence against illegal aliens… I think it would be terrific to trap them by their ankles in steel bear traps then beat them to death when you return and find them in the trap. After they're dead, they should be decapitated and their heads put on spikes as a warning to other Mexicans. I advocate putting poison in desert drinking water stations they use.  They deserve to be doused with gasoline and set on fire.  Another great idea is to shoot at them from planes and helicopters.  Oh, if any American sides with the illegals- like a bigmouth politician or a politically-correct, ass-kissing local Sheriff, lawyers, Judges or the like - it would be a real public service to kill them too!  If they side with the enemy, they should share the enemy's fat."

May 4, 2005:  On Judge George Greer who presided over the case of Terry Schiavo (the Florida woman whose case gained national attention when her husband had her feeding tube removed and who has since died), as well as the lawyers who were honoring him with an award at a country club: "It is my sincerest hope the country club is attacked with rocket propelled grenades and as a result Judge Greer and all the lawyers giving him an award are killed.  If RPG's prove too difficult, then I hope a sniper takes them out as they travel to or from the place; ALL of them!"

February 28, 2005: Turner advocated assaulting and killing African-Americans on March 15 to commemorate his birthday: "I think a full day of violence against blacks . . . would be a really nice thing . . . complete with lynchings, church burnings, drive-by shootings and bombings to put these subhuman animals back in their place."

January 3, 2005:  After posting the presidential inauguration parade route on his Web site, "It seems to me there can be no protection against a 'Turner Diaries' type of mortar attack or a Hezbollah-type rocket attack launched from outside the security zone. Rest assured, if the fed's [sic] get wiped out, I'll be cheering the TV set!"
