What The Fox? – Revisited

Back in August I looked at the case of Byron Williams, who had been stopped by the Highway Patrol on Interstate 580 and showed his displeasure by engaging the police in a gun battle in which he fired a variety of ordnance, including the armour piercing variety.

Williams, who confessed at the time that he was on his way to kill “people of note” at the Tides Foundation, has now made a series of further admissions to Californian news anchor John Hamilton, who visited him at the Santa Rita jail in the Bay Area suburb of Dublin.

In a series of interviews, Williams names his main information sources: conspiracy theorists, right wing propagandists, and our old friend Glenn Beck, increasingly wayward “star” of Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse). His regard for Beck and his chalkboard comes through strongly.

The conspiracies fed by Beck, and taken on board by Williams, include Brazilian oil company Petrobras, George Soros, the idea that the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill was a contract hit, and involve the NAACP, ACORN and the New Black Panther Party.

As the Deepwater Horizon explosion had killed eleven, Williams intended to kill the same number at Tides. Fortunately, the police stopped him.

The full text of Hamilton’s interviews, and more, is HERE. Worrying.
