Yet another Truther gives the freedom movement some positive media attentionby Stephen Gordon
I’m taken to task in the comments every time I write about how Truthers and other conspiracy theorists harm the freedom movement. Now that someone has just been arrested for posting threats on Twitter, let’s take a look at how the newspaper reported (emphasis added) the individual accused of the threat:
According to an FBI criminal complaint, Daniel Knight Hayden, who went by the name CitizenQuasar on a popular microblogging site, threatened murder on several occasions in the run-up to tax day.
On April 11 he posted a message on Twitter that said,”The WAR wWIL [sic] start on the stepes [sic] of the Oklahoma State Capitol. I will cast the first stone.”
That message was followed by others that said, “”START THE KILLING NOW” and “After I am killed on the Capitol Steps, like a REAL man, the rest of you will REMEMBER ME!!!” He also wrote “I really don’t give a (expletive) anymore. Send the cops around. I will cut their heads off the heads and throw the(m) on the State Capitol steps.”
He then wrote life wasn’t worth living in Oklahoma – without listing any reasons – feigned he has been drinking too much and posted the name and home phone number of a man he believed was a local tea party organizer, instructing his followers to “REMEMBER this name.”
The last Twitter message posted by Mr. Hayden on April 15 said, “Locked AND loaded for the Oklahoma State Capitol. Let’s see what happens.”
Special agent Michael S. Puskas wrote in his complaint that he tracked Mr. Hayden down through his computer’s IP address and his public MySpace profile.
Wired Magazine believes this is the first criminal prosecution to arise from postings on Twitter.
Liberal bloggers quickly pointed to Mr. Hayden to validate the Obama’s administation’s report about the rise of right-wing extremism. Mr. Hayden’s online posting are obviously anti-government, although his political persuasions do not appear to be linked to any party.
Several political videos are posted on Mr. Hayden’s MySpace account, including one known as a “truther” documentary, accusing President Bush of being responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
A video heavy blog by Mr. Hayden posted on April 6 suggests President Obama has hypnotized his supporters and a prominently featured quote in his profile from The Gulag Archipelago says, “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?”
Now look at his MySpace page. Of his incoherent video and written ramblings, I’m not sure of which I like best:
- Male – 52 years old – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – United States
- Alex Jones Interviewed by Russia Today: “U.S. is a puppet of private bankers .”
- Hoagland on The Monuments of Mars
- Republic Broadcasting Network: Because you CAN handle the truth
- Prophesy reveal American pentagram
This one is self-explanatory:
Citizen Quasar ‘s Details
While I feel a bit sorry for the person in question, at this moment, he has 474 friends (including Dennis Kucinich, Dylan Avery and Alex Jones) on his MySpace page. That’s truly scary.
Of course, the conspiracy theorists will all suggest that this was planned by Obama in preparation for the April 15th Tea Parties and that thermite was found behind the grassy knoll which was paid for by the Jews. In truth, I’ve paid myself with Arizona desert moon rock sales.
Disclosure: I was paid by the CFR, Illuminati and the Bilderbergers to write this. I’m currently en route to meet with the Jewish banking cartel so I can take over the world next week. I also have 666 tattoos of the very-same pyramid one can find on the one dollar bill on both my forehead and one of my wrists. Timothy LaHaye is probably writing a new book about me right now. Don’t tell anyone, but we all plan to meet at Area 51 at midnight on Friday. See you there.
