KKK Member Designs Radiation Weapon, Blames “Bedwetting Maggot in Chief” and Muslims for Boston Marathon Bombing

Speaking of the KKK, this story scooped by the Albany Times Union is officially bananas.

ALBANY, N.Y. — An industrial mechanic with General Electric Co., who is also allegedly a member of the Ku Klux Klan, designed a deadly mobile radiation device that he intended to sell to Jewish groups or a southern branch of the Ku Klux Klan, according to a federal complaint unsealed Wednesday in Albany.

The device was intended to be a truck-mounted radiation particle weapon that could be remotely controlled and capable of silently aiming a lethal beam of radioactivity at its human targets. The concept was that victims would eventually die from radiation sickness.


The FBI complaint states that on June 5, 2012, Crawford met at a Scotia restaurant with a person working as a confidential source for the FBI. Crawford allegedly talked about his enemies and of being “tired of getting ‘raped,’ that there are people out there who have decided that they don’t get their fair share in life, and that (Crawford) wanted to stop these people.”

In telephone calls recorded by the FBI, Crawford identified himself as “a member of the Ku Klux Klan, specifically, the United Northern & Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.”

Crawford is listed on several websites as a member of Americans Demanding Liberty and Freedom, a Galway-based Tea Party group.

Two months ago, in a five-part text message monitored by the FBI, Crawford, said that he found a power-supply for the weapon in a message laced with political anger. The text messages were sent on April 15, the day of the Boston Marathon bombing.

“Well, tell it to your treasoness bedwetting maggot in chief,” Crawford wrote, apparently referring to President Barack Obama, according to a transcript in the complaint. “He started bringing the scumbags (here) wholesale as he got in charge. He directed the ins (U.S. immigration agency) to start bringing the muzzies here without background checks.”

I for one am glad that the FBI had this man under close surveillance. A man who refers to the president as a ‘treasonous bedwetting maggot in chief’ who is “bringing the muzziez” here without background checks. And if we are to infer anything from the timeline presented by the FBI, it’s that he held the president, or perhaps immigrants, personally responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Obviously he is entitled to his opinion, but that combined with entering a synagogue looking to pawn off your radiation weapon is certainly enough to warrant scrutiny. It’s a scenario that may trigger additional surveillance of terrorism suspects in other countries under FISA.

Crawford was also a plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the New York Safe Act, Governor Cuomo’s gun control legislation, according to the Albany Times Union.

Perhaps Kris Kobach is right. Pro-immigration reform protesters are just like this rabidly xenopbobic Tea Party and KKK member who was planning to mount a radiation cannon to the roof of his van which he lives in down by the river.

It wasn’t very long ago that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was asked to apologize for a memo that warned local departments about right-wing domestic terrorism.

    Well, there are some similarities. When any group comes en masse in buses to your house it’s difficult to claim some intimidation isn’t intended.

    No. He’s entitled to his informed opinion. Not trying to deny him 1st Amendment rights, but the “everyone is entitled to their opinion” political correctness is why (to give one example) we see climate change deniers given equal time on news programs.

    I had to read this twice to assure myself that it wasn’t satirical.

    These people are completely nuts.

    Hey, waitaminute!

    A KKK guy who forms alliances with Jews to protect Israel? That’s progress!

    • D_C_Wilson

      Not really. He probably just wants all the Jews to move there so that Jeebus will come back and give them all the convert or burn forever ultimatum.

    • Ipecac

      I was thinking something very similar. What kind of lame Klan do we have now where they ally with Jews? He must be very unpopular with the other Klan members.

  • alexjonesisanidiot

    Well. I mean…superheroes are getting to be a really big thing right now. We have costumed avengers walking the streets, so I guess it was only a matter of time before someone thought he was Lex Luthor.

    Seriously? A mobile radiation cannon? Somebody has been reading too many comic books/watching too many movies/playing too many video games. Is it any wonder he got caught when his plan was so thoroughly and diabolically thought out?

      He shouldn’t have started monologuing.
