Daniel Knight Hayden, 52, was arrested by FBI agents who identified him as the Twitter user CitizenQuasar. In a series of tweets beginning April 11, CitizenQuasar vowed to start a “war” against the government on the steps of the Oklahoma City Capitol building, the site of that city’s version of the national “Tea Party” protests promoted by the conservative-leaning Fox News.
“START THE KILLING NOW! I am willing to be the FIRST DEATH!,” read a tweet at 8:01 PM that day. “After I am killed on the Capitol Steps, like a REAL man, the rest of you will REMEMBER ME!!!,” he added five minutes later. Then: “Send the cops around. I will cut their heads off the heads and throw the[m] on the State Capitol steps.”
Hayden’s MySpace page is a breathtaking gallery of right wing memes about the “New World Order,” gun control as Nazi fascism, and Barack Obama’s covert use of television hypnosis, among many others.

Morale of the story? Don't fuck with the federals. You will regret it.

More proof that Obama is a fascist. Be interesting to see how Fox twists this one.

I'll wait for RReaction. Have they reacted on Obama and swine flu yet?

Has Obama also got television hypnosis into TVs in the rest of the western world? He's rather popular around Europe, WAY more popular than the last guy, Baby Bush.
To the rest of the rant: If you threaten people with death, you should be arrested by the police or the FBI.

You know there must be a whole lot of people immune to this television hypnosis thing, because I seem to remember at least 50 million votes for John McCain in the last election.

Yep, when you threaten violence against random people/government officials you belong in jail.

So how many did he succeed in taking with him? Zero? Well, I guess he wasn't as tough as he thought.

If he really wanted to commit suicide-by-cop, he wouldn't have made a public spectacle of it.
4/29/2009 8:06:33 AM
Doesn't he have some posts here?
No Wait that's Jim Hayden...
I wonder if they are related?

This guy would fit perfectly at Fox News. Maybe they will hire him when he gets out of prison.
