Radio host who wants to shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina being investigated by the Secret Service
Last week, Pete Santilli– who looks a lot more like a shady accountant from an ’80s movie than the host of a crazy right-wing podcast– announced his desire to shoot Hillary Rodham Clinton in the vagina, because Benghazi. He would also like to have Barack Obama shot for his “crimes” against the nation, but not in any specific area of his body.
Via Raw Story:
‘Miss Hillary Clinton needs to be convicted, she needs to be tried, convicted and shot in the vagina,” he said. “I wanna pull the trigger. That ‘C U Next Tuesday’ has killed human beings that are in our ranks of our service. I want to remind you that in Benghazi, Miss Hillary ‘the fricken’ biggest vagina on the face of the planet’ told troops to stand down and to not go in and interfere with the operation that they set up because they’re moving arms; Barack Obama is moving drugs through the CIA out of Afghanistan and Barack Obama needs to be tried, convicted, and shot for crimes against the United States of America.”
“I want to shoot her right in the vagina and I don’t want her to die right away,” he added. “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.”
That is some batshit crazy shit. And hey, this is America. You are free to say all the batshit crazy things you like… except that you can’t really directly threaten other human beings with sexual assault over some dumb conspiracy shit.
While Santilli is just basically just some dumb dude with a podcast, he’s had some fancy gun-lovin’ celebrities on as of late, like Ted Nugent and the president of Gun Owners of America. Ever since then, sites like Right Wing Watch have been keeping an eye on him, which is how his rantings have garnered such attention.
Which is how Santilli has now ended up being investigated by the Secret Service.
“We are aware of Mr. Santilli’s comments and will take the appropriate follow up action,” Edwin M. Donovan, a Secret Service spokesperson, told TPM on Monday. “He certainly has a right to free speech, but the Secret Service has a right and an obligation to determine what a person’s intent is when making comments like this.”
See, while one is perfectly free to say “I don’t like Hillary Clinton and maybe believe wholeheartedly in this stupid conspiracy theory that no one else really cares about”– it’s probably not the world’s smartest idea to go out into public and openly fantasize about your desire to shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina. Not only is it creepy as fuck, but it might cause some problems for you here and there.
