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

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”?

    please don’t forget an average single mom from florida was taken into federal custody in 2010, held without bail and received a 2 year prison sentence for a far milder, sarcastic email making fun of right wing tea party racism and anti government gun violence. we cannot have double standards where just because someones a rich talk show host with a few dozen followers they are not held accountable for their actions.

        we are neither right or left, that is the old paradigm, grow up and stop being a puppet for the fake system. Pete is not a right winger. the author of this article obviously has not listened to the show. Hence, Idiot. I stand behind everything he has said on the air.

        Santilli says in his About page that he was a long-time Reagan Republican who voted for Obama for change. There are many who make this claim, but I’m convinced its bullshit to get attention. They believe they have power through independence as they can avoid blame for either party’s problems. It’s a cop-out. Right/left is not only NOT an old paradigm, the Teapublicans have dragged moderate Republicans to the far-right to avoid losing primaries, thereby cementing their hard-right positions. Everyone else is by default on the left. You’re naive if you think this will ever change.

        Btw: if you stand by everything he says on the air, that would make you a pretty awful person; the worst of the worst.

        Sure I know you. You’re a troll. You wander from site to site spreading conspiracies and propaganda, to places where your kind are not welcome, just as in life, until you’re told you”re not welcome back. That’s the case here.
