“THOUGHT CRIME” VS. REAL CRIME
by LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III (Ret), ©2017
(Jun. 29, 2017) — [Editor’s Note: The following interview segment is a continuation from Part 4 focusing on the FBI’s 2010 arrest and prosecution of Darren Wesley Huff and its failure to apprehend congressional shooter James T. Hodgkinson, now deceased.]
The story about Darren is made up. The FBI made that up, as opposed to Hodgkinson’s brother saying the day after the shooting that he knew his brother was going to Washington, DC to protest. He knew his brother had a pretty dark past, what his political leanings were, and that he had guns.
Did the FBI react to Hodgkinson?
Hodgkinson was parked next to the ball field for 2½ months with guns and notes and evidence that he was going to assassinate people and he was never approached, and look what they did to Darren Huff.
Hodgkinson had guns, ammunition, notes, a list of congressmen’s names on it; he was going to the YMCA next to where he was parked and was within walking distance to the park. He was never once approached, ever.
Nobody can tell me that the FBI didn’t sit on their hands and know that this thing was going down. And if they didn’t know, who’s going to come out and say that they didn’t know today?
Hodgkinson crossed four state lines. Do you think that Hodgkinson was being followed by a law enforcement escort over any of the states that he crossed from and into the way Darren Huff was? Was Hodgkinson stopped as Darren Huff was? Was Hodgkinson asked to secure his weapons someplace in his van? If Hodgkinson had been stopped and his van had been searched the way Darren Huff was stopped and searched and they had found notes and evidence that Hodgkinson was going across four state lines to assassinate people, do you think he would have gotten as far as he did?
Why did they treat Darren Huff differently than they did Hodgkinson? In Darren Huff’s case, he was being set up, as I was, for a shooting event: to get shot dead that day in Madisonville. And Mueller was behind it. Instead of that playing out, they went after Darren for a crime that they made up, a thought crime, and they successfully prosecuted him for what they said they thought Darren was thinking.
Darren was never where the FBI said he was. Bill Looman gave a sworn statement which said, “I was with Darren Huff all day, and we were never at the General Sessions Courthouse.” So you have an FBI agent working for Mueller in the day and Holder and Obama in an out-and-out lie saying that Darren was at the courthouse with a gun, standing there with other men with guns, who were going to join Darren to go into the courthouse to take it over. But that didn’t happen.
Hodgkinson was parked next to the venue, really there, talking to people, surveilling the YMCA, surveilling the baseball field for 2½ months, and he was never once approached.
The FBI let this happen; they let this guy sit there for 2½ months, but they were all over Darren the day before he went to Madisonville.
Why the difference?
As James Cavanaugh said on TV, Darren Huff and people like me are still classified as “domestic terrorists” to this day. Mueller is responsible for that. Mueller is responsible for the fact that I have been declared a domestic enemy, and, by the way, we have that confirmed in so many ways, not the least of which is that DVD presentation we got from the McMinn County Sheriff’s Department back in 2012.
Do you think that the FBI or Department of Justice has put together a DVD presentation about people in the Antifa movement which would depict people like Madonna, the actors involved in the assassination in the park play, Kathy Griffin’s outrageous and obscene representation or Keith Olbermann’s rants? Do you think that the FBI has encouraged and sponsored law enforcement agents to put together a program about the professor who attempted murder against a participant protesting Antifa and hit him in the head with a bike lock?
What about professors and students saying that people who support President Trump should be guillotined?
Do you see the difference between how the veterans are being treated as opposed to how the Antifa is hands-off?
Who’s to stop a shooting from happening today? Where is the FBI today? Where is the DVD portraying the other Hodgkinsons out there as the real domestic terrorists? Why isn’t that term applied to them? Why is it applied to me but not to Madonna?
Do you hear these things being talked about in the news as a “domestic terrorist” event today?
It’s still going on. Bernie Sanders sat with Elizabeth Warren and urged people to “fight back.”
[Editor’s Note: Following the shooting and injuring of five people on June 14 in Alexandria, VA, the FBI described Hodgkinson as having had an “anger management problem.” On June 21, USA Today reported:
A week after the stunning attack, which left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise critically wounded and four others injured, the FBI Wednesday offered a troubled portrait of the 66-year-old gunman with an “an anger management problem” who abruptly left a strained marriage in Belleville, Ill., more than month ago to take up residence in a van on the outskirts of the nation’s capital – along with his weapons.
While he was prone to rage against the politics of President Trump and was carrying the names of six lawmakers in his pocket at the time he was fatally wounded in an exchange of gunfire with police, federal investigators said they were still at a loss for what drew Hodgkinson to the quiet neighborhood of Del Ray and ultimately to launch the assault in which he fired 60 rounds.
“He was struggling in all kinds of different ways,” FBI Assistant Director Tim Slater said.
