of the way in which right radical web radio host/ FBI informant Hal Turner was apparently being used to make the case for Hate Crimes/ Hate Speech totalitarianism
rang a bell and I dug into my email inbox (currently 9518 items, aargh) to find this:

I own Turner Radio Network, an internet and radio broadcasting outlet.This past summer, I decided to change the tone of the network and cleared out 90% of the existing radio shows. I hope to bring new programming from a variety of credible sources which is the purpose of my writing to you.I would like to offer VDARE and its contributors, FREE radio time on Turner Radio Network. I am willing to make an initial offer of ONE hour per week for programming of your choice, beginning in January, 2007, remaining free until March.The show can be pre-recorded or live. If live, it can have listener call-ins or not.Please let me know if this is of interest to you. IF it is of interest, and the programming is well received by my existing audience, I may extend the amount of time offered per week.

(I was going to delete the contact information because Turner`s family apparently still live there, but I see they post it on their blog
I didn`t answer this e-mail, and not just because I am several thousands of emails behind in my correspondence. But now I wonder. November 2006 is well within the period that Turner is supposed to have worked for the FBI—let alone whoever else employed him. What was going on here?
No doubt naively, I also find myself wondering about Turner`s statement that he had "decided to change the tone of the network and cleared out 90% of the existing radio shows. I hope to bring new programming from a variety of credible sources which is the purpose of my writing to you."
Despite prim Establishment Conservative assertions to the contrary
, VDARE.COM is far from being on the extreme—which is, obviously, a matter of relativity. Is it possible that Turner, who was apparently a conventional conservative quite recently, really did want to come in from the cold?
But of course there is no way back if you`re on the right—in mysterious contrast
to the endless tolerance extended to the left.
