HARTFORD, Conn. – A New Jersey blogger who urged readers to “take up arms” against Connecticut lawmakers and who suggested government officials should “obey the Constitution or die” surrendered Thursday on a charge of inciting violence.

Harold “Hal” Turner, a former radio talk show host from North Bergen who broadcasts commentary on his Web site, was angry…

angry over a proposed law that would change the way Connecticut Roman Catholic churches operate their finances.

The blog, on blogger.com, has been shut down for terms of service violation, but there are bits and pieces that can be reconstructed of the blogged text:

[Catholics should] take up arms and put down this tyranny by force…It is our intent to forment direct action against these individuals personally, … These beastly government officials should be made an example of as a warning to others in government: Obey the Constitution or die. I suspect we have enough bullets to put [officials who may try to stop the carnage such as police] down too…

Turner was previously questoined in connection with the murder of a US District Judge’s mother and husband in 2005. He was not charged with that double murder but had called for the judge to be killed on his radio show.

    I wish I could ferment action in my fridge. Endless supply of booze for the win!

    Hey, crazy totally out there question, but why is it that nowadays it’s the far-right that’s going apeshit and getting all crazy terrorist and stuff, when way back in the 60s it was the far-left? I know politics is supposedly a pendulum, but is “crazy” a pendulum too??

    If you think of political ideology as a circle rather than a straight line, the far left and far right eventually meet up somewhere around the Batshit Insane region. ;^}
