Computer Hackers Allege That Notorious Neo-Nazi Radio Host Is on FBI Payroll, Mark Potok (Hate Watch), Alternet.org. January 19, 2008.
Huh. Professional bigot and amateur radio ham Hal Turner — “well known as one of the most vicious neo-Nazis in America, a man who routinely suggests killing his enemies” — has not only retired, but been revealed as an FBI informant: the former fact presumably being a product of the later one.
On his blog (Tuesday, January 15, 2008) Hal writes:
The Hal Turner Show has ended
The free market votes with its wallet. For seven years, “The Hal Turner Show” struggled to garner new listeners and financial support. I have grown weary of this battle; my heart just isn’t in it anymore.
As such, I regret to announce the termination of the Hal Turner Show.
I will always value the friendships I made in the pro-white movement and those friends will always be welcome in my home [and gub’mint files].
I never have and never will betray my people. You will never see me on TV or hear me on radio as some pathetic “reformed” whatever.
I wish all of you the best of luck in the future.
The allegation that Turner is an FBI informant is contained in an SPLC report, based on evidence howwible hackers collected, including what appears to be an email exchange between Hal and his handler. Paul Brooks writes in the Times Herald-Record (‘White power rally leader was FBI snitch: law center’, January 17, 2008) “When the e-mails hit a neo-Nazi Web site, Turner shut down his own Web site. “I hereby separate from the “pro-White” movement. I will no longer involve myself in any aspect of it,” Turner said. Yesterday, Turner said the only thing he can say about the FBI allegation is “no comment.” The FBI hasn’t commented, either.” Currently, Hal’s website is completely offline, www.halturnershow.com leading directly to privatewebhosting.org.
- December 30, 2007 : Hal Turner, the white nationalist Internet radio talk show host, has been hacked by the group ‘g00ns.’ His website (www.halturnershow.com) has been replaced with a single page featuring a photoshopped image of Hal Turner morphed into an african-american primate hybrid and the text “Hacked by g00ns.net”.

Hal’s site has been hacked before apparently, after he pissed off some hackers. The message the hackers left — “Oh, you should probably also stop the stuff you did in July with your pals (Yeah, we know about that)” — is presumably a reference to the July 7 email referred to in the SPLC report:
On Jan. 1 , unidentified hackers electronically confronted Turner in the forum of his website for “The Hal Turner Show.” After a heated exchange, they told Turner that they had successfully hacked into his server and found correspondence with an FBI agent who is apparently Turner’s handler. Then they posted an alleged July 7  E-mail to the agent in which Turner hands over a message from someone who sent in a death threat against Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.). “Once again,” Turner writes to his handler, “my fierce rhetoric has served to flush out a possible crazy.” In what is allegedly a portion of another E-mail, Turner discusses the money he is paid…
“Spooky!” and “Thank Odin for Don Black!” is all I can say.
Of course, not all Yanquis are as awful as Hal. One notable exception being Toby Radloff, The Nerd! (Ted Schwarz, The Cleveland Free Times, January 9):
Some might say that it was inevitable that Toby Radloff would one day be seen on DVD having a delightful romp with a female corpse he finds in a dumpster.
After all, his early education, before he discovered his calling as the Genuine Nerd, before he befriended Harvey Pekar and started appearing in both the magazine and the movie American Splendor, Radloff was in the Sagamore Hills Children’s Psychiatric Hospital. The five days a week of residential care and education was the price his mother paid for having a son who was so gifted that regular school bored him from the time he was in kindergarten. He was too young for the Cleveland schools’ programs for the gifted, and so frustrated in class that he was often disruptive unless his grandmother sat with him.
At Sagamore Hills he was surrounded with other brilliant children, but also with the retarded and the severely mentally ill. The location lends bemusement to that portion of Toby’s career involved with low-budget horror films, but was emotionally devastating at the time.
“Those years were hell,” he says in his unique, almost ploddingly deliberate speech. “I missed my freedom. I missed my mother. I missed my grandparents.”
Oh yeah, and finally, in the Czech Republic, the abandonment of a recent outdoors meeting in Prague of a special branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (Germany 1930s) due to anti-fascist reign has cast doubt over another of the Society’s meetings in the town of Pilsen this weekend: “The city worries that potential clashes between the marching neo-Nazis and militant anti-fascists could put residents and their property in danger, the ordinance banning the march said” (City in Czech Republic bans neo-Nazi march slated for weekend, DPA, Ha’aretz, January 17, 2008).
