Secret Service Looking Into Right Wing Radio Host Pete Santilli for Threats Against Hillary Clinton

Share

You may have already heard reports on the obscene death threats made by far-far right, lunatic fringe radio host Pete Santilli. There are a lot of statements in his rant that one could explain-away as hyperbole – Obama “should” be killed, the Bush family, including Bush Sr., Dubya and Jeb “should” be killed (guess they’re not conservative enough), and crazy stuff about Hillary killing our troops, etc. But at one point he goes clearly over the Nugent line on Hillary (while simultaneously losing the independent women’s vote for the GOP):

I want to shoot her right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away; I want her to feel the pain and I want to look her in the eyes and I want to say, on behalf of all Americans that you’ve killed, on behalf of the Navy SEALS, the families of Navy SEAL Team Six who were involved in the fake hunt down of this Obama, Obama bin Laden thing, that whole fake scenario, because these Navy SEALS know the truth, they killed them all. On behalf of all of those people, I’m supporting our troops by saying we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.

Listen to the entire rant for yourself:

You’re probably wondering, shouldn’t the Secret Service be alerted? Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, is a Secret Service “protectee”, afterall. Well, tonight I reached out to the Washington D.C. Public Affairs office of the U.S. Secret Service and found that there have been several reports on this threat and an investigation is already underway.

What could this nutjob hope to gain by this? More listeners? When does hyperbole cross the line into an actionable threat? Is the line drawn between “We should have her shot” and “I want to shoot her”?

@MrDane1982 Their anarchist world is turning upside down, so blame Hillary. When Sanders finally concedes they'll call him an evil sellout.
