Murrieta Protestor Calls Police 'Domestic Terrorists' For Protecting Bus Of 'Infected Immigrants'

The effort to block busses of Central American refugees travelling through Murrieta, California, over the July 4th weekend drew any number of fringe right-wing extremists, including radio host Pete Santilli, who offered a 24/7 live webcast of his stay.

In one webcast posted on July 4, Santilli approached a number of local police officers demanded that they bring him the county sheriff. He also told them that he had called 911 but that that strategy had also failed to summon the sheriff. (Many militia groups maintain that the sheriff is the only legitimate law enforcement officer).

“I almost died at Bundy ranch because the sheriff didn’t show up,” Santilli told one officer, referring to his time at the Bundy ranch in Nevada, where he spent time harassing a Mexican-American reporter.

Santilli told one Murrieta police officer that he was “here for a peaceful protest” but that by failing to put him in contact with the sheriff “what you guys are creating is a violent one.”

“Are you guys domestic terrorists now?” he yelled after the officer walked away. “You guys are terrorizing the public.”

“They’re going to deliver a bus here with a bunch of anarchists and create a volatile situation on the 4th of July. That’s an incitement,” he yelled.

At one point, Santilli got his hands on a bullhorn and earned a cheer from the crowd when he told the officers, “You want to send a bus to us right in front of the media so Obama can publicly display what happens to people who stop busses with infected immigrants. Obama wants to send a message and you’re helping to facilitate it.”

Cliven Bundy Defends Border Militias, Tells Feds to Point Guns At 'Enemy' Immigrants

If the anti-immigrant protests in Murietta, California, and the gathering of militia groups at the border remind you of the anti-government standoff at Cliven Bundy’s ranch, that might be because the events are attracting some of the very same people.

Far-right radio host Pete Santilli, who we last saw harassing a Mexican-American reporter at Bundy’s ranch, has been broadcasting from Murietta for the past week or so and has mentioned that he has also driven down to join some groups along the Southern border, who he has been working with in an effort to shut down the Tijuana border crossing.

In fact, yesterday, Santilli interviewed Bundy himself about the similarities between the Bundy ranch standoff and the events in Murietta and at the border.

Calling the Bureau of Land Management “dirty rotten buggers,” Bundy told Santilli that the groups who faced off with the BLM at his ranch were “successful in bringing back freedom to America, at least in this area.”

Speaking of the militia groups gathering at the Southern border — including groups like the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, who were strongly represented at his ranch — Bundy said that like at his ranch, federal agents are “pointing their guns at we the people” and not at the “enemy,” who he said is the “encroacher that’s illegally coming in here.”

Extremist Radio Host At Bundy Ranch Harasses Local Reporter, Accuses Glenn Beck Of Starting A 'Race War'

It should come as no surprise to learn that Pete Santilli, an Internet radio host best known for wishing he could shoot Hillary Clinton “right in the vagina” and helping to organize last year’s “Truckers For the Constitution” rally, has spent the last couple of weeks broadcasting live from Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada.

Last Friday, Santilli filmed the press conference at which Bundy attempted to explain that his view that black people were better off under slavery isn’t racist. After Bundy spoke, Santilli announced that “somehow” the Bureau of Land Management had used the media to “hijack” the press conference by “injecting race and dividing us.”

So, naturally, Santilli decided to confront a local TV reporter who had apparently questioned Bundy on his views about race, drawing the attention of Bundy supporters standing nearby.

“Who do you work for?” Santilli demanded of the reporter, who appears to be Antonio Castelan of Channel 3 New. “Do you believe that the media is state-run?” When Castelan responded that “as a Mexican-American” he didn’t think his questioning on race was biased, Santilli hounded him: “Why do you believe you need to inject Mexican-Americanism into your line of questioning?”

“As a Mexican-American you should know that we’re defending your rights, and you’re working for the state-run media, and you should know that, especially by the bias in the line of your questioning,” he yelled as Castelan walked away, hounded by Bundy supporters. “You’re not serving the American public and you do not deserve even First Amendment constitutional rights, sir!”

Later, talking to another reporter, Santilli accused Glenn Beck, who has criticized the Bundy ranch protester, of promoting a “race war” on behalf of the United Nations’ Agenda 21. That is surprising, given that Beck has written an entire book warning about the very same Agenda 21 conspiracy theory that he is being accused of promoting.

Jim Garrow & Pete Santilli Now Openly Calling For Military Coup Against Obama

Jim Garrow brought his tall tale about President Obama trying to murder him to The Pete Santilli Show on Friday, where he also plugged the anti-Obama Operation American Spring. Santilli, the radio host who called for the murder of Obama and for Hillary Clinton to be “shot in the vagina” and has advocated for violence against the government, said that a national strike and even a military coup is necessary to bring down the Obama administration.

“I’m not calling for — well, yes I’m calling for the military to restore our Republic. Is it a military coup? I would say that it’s probably the most orderly fashion to do this,” Santilli told Garrow, who responded that it would take just “three percent of the population to rise up” and “control the country.”

Santilli: That change that we’re referring to, and I do have hope that it could be done if we have the numbers and we do have the numbers, if 300 million people who we could potentially get to rise up and if we had them all standing in the streets, standing still with a national strike and shut the economic system down, it cuts off the lifeblood of the elite, they no longer have that wealth flow. But that change, because we’ve spent decades ignoring this, they’ve been preparing for this for tens of years, for the past thirty or forty years internally to use all of these tactics that we’ve used to save the entire world, to police the world, to spread freedom throughout the world, now all of these tactics are being used against us by domestic enemies. But I think that that change must come forcefully, it has to happen in a short period of time. I say forcefully in that we need to abruptly let Obama know, it is time for you to go, you need to resign, you need to leave.

We have an opportunity here where our military commanders can affect arrests on these criminals. Do we not? Do you think that’s going to happen? I’m not calling for — well, yes I’m calling for the military to restore our Republic. Is it a military coup? I would say that it’s probably the most orderly fashion to do this. But don’t you agree that it must be a forceful, abrupt change. It can be peaceful but it has to happen in a short period of time, doesn’t it?

Garrow: I believe it should, I believe it could, I believe it may, but I also believe this: three percent of the population, that’s all it took at the very beginning of this Republic. It was only three percent that actually fought for freedoms and the Republic and the new nation, only three percent. All we need is three percent of the population to rise up now and we can control the country.

Santilli agreed with Garrow’s call for guerilla warfare against Obama and urged Americans to participate in Operation American Spring, a rally calling for the president’s overthrow through potentially violent means.

While he alleged that it is actually government officials who want violence in order “to use all of their ammunition and equipment they’ve been building up for decades now,” Santilli urged people to “take care of business,” just like the Marines.

Garrow said that that Operation American Spring is “expecting 30 million people” to gather in Washington D.C. to demand Obama’s ouster, an event he said is necessary because the president is murdering people.

Garrow: It’s called Operation American Spring and it springs from that whole notion of what was going on with the Egypt groups, the people in Egypt rising up and saying ‘hey we want a return to freedom and not to a repressive Muslim regime.’

Santilli: Where is this going to take place? It’s on May 16.

Garrow: It’s on May 16 and it’s going to be in the Mall. They’re expecting 30 million people. There’s never been a gathering as large as they’re predicting for this event.

Santilli: Wow. That’s something that we can—actually we all need to get behind. We have no choice at this point and time. We have no choice, no alternative. As a former United States Marine, we Marines that are trained to lash out in a very special way, like in Fallujah. If you send the Marines in, they take care of business and it’s not by throwing potpourri everywhere. But I’ve learned my way through this that we have to take and exhaust every possible peaceful means to take back our Republic, we must do that because they want nothing more than for us to fire a first shot because that will allow them to use them to use all of their ammunition and equipment they’ve been building up for decades now. I think that we can, if we have a grand awakening such as the May 16 event, this Operation American Spring, that we have an opportunity to really just stand in the Mall, stand in the streets, let our voices be heard and tell them to vacate their offices.



Santilli: Guerrilla warfare is the potential that may come about if they try to test our resolve, isn’t it? They need to know that we’re prepared and they probably will test us, won’t they?

Garrow: Well the Second Amendment right is clearly that area where they’re going to push, push the wall as it were and see, will this wall crumble or will this be a strong wall? Will the public react one way or will they react another? They’ve already done some testing and frankly we have not done well. Unfortunately, they’ve come in and they’ve shot people, they’ve killed people.

Who Is Behind The Truckers Ride For The Constitution?

On last night's broadcast, Glenn Beck interviewed a woman named Zeeda Andrews, who is organizing something called a Truckers Ride For The Constitution in which thousands of truck drivers plan to descend on Washington, DC and grind traffic to a halt in order to "restore our Constitutional Republic" and demand President Obama's impeachment:

Earlier this week, the event made news when one of the participants said they would also demand the "arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office," but that threat was quickly disavowed by event spokesman Peter Santilli:

Conlon's comments infuriated Peter Santilli, an online radio host who is not a trucker. Santilli is hosting a parallel rally in California and will not be joining the D.C. protest, but he's acting as a spokesman for an umbrella of nationwide rallies called "Truckers Ride for the Constitution."

Rather than seeking the arrest of lawmakers, Santilli told U.S. News in an email, "we are asking [congressmen] to voluntarily resign if they refuse to accept our peaceful demands to follow the U.S. Constitution and the law. If they refuse to follow the law, we the people will bring the free-market economy to a halt... If it results in a major traffic jam as we saw in Egypt – so be it."

Santilli says truckers and other participants will ask for the impeachment of President Barack Obama, but it's unlawful, he says, for truckers to "arrest" congressmen and he says it would be unsafe for truckers to turn I-495 into a parking lot.

If the name Peter Santilli sounds familiar, that is because he is the radio host who, earlier this year, called for Hillary Clinton to be shot in the vagina:

How about Hillary Clinton? That frickin' assbag has not only been involved in drug trafficking out of Mena, Arkansas, okay? Not only that; and all these people try to have this plausible deniability thing, yeah sure, they're removed, they're just a bunch of politicians. Well, guess where they got all of the money to acquire the power that they have?

This 'C U Next Tuesday,' Hillary Clinton, has been involved in the killings of American troops.  Namely, the mysterious suicide of the emotionally unstable Navy SEAL commander who just so happened to be involved in all of her dealings in the Middle East, okay.  And he just mysteriously got suicided along with everyone else associated with the Clinton family. Miss Hillary Clinton needs to be convicted, she needs to be tried, convicted and shot in the vagina. 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. And if anybody has a problem with that, then you are an enemy of our state.

..

I want to shoot [Clinton] right in the vagina and I don't want her to die right away; 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 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.

Andrews has hosted several "Ride For The Constitution" radio programs on the Guerrilla Media Network, which is also the home of Santilli's radio program and, in fact, Santilli co-hosted the very first episode of Andrews' broadcast:

Think about that: Glenn Beck has endorsed and is helping to promote an event that has someone who has demanded the Hillary Clinton be shot in the vagina serving as its official spokesman.

UPDATE: Media Matters takes a more in-depth look at Andrews' views and they are exactly as crazy as you would expect.
