further proof that :
ALL TV NEWS & TALK RADIO ARE DANGEROUS THINGS and ought to be bannished from your life !!!!
The man convicted of setting fire to an Ohio mosque earlier this year is now blaming his crime on having watched Fox News and listened to conservative talk radio shows, which he claims convinced him that Muslims are all “terrorists.”
The 52-year-old man, Randolph Linn of Indiana, recently pleaded guilty to charges of setting fire to the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, resulting in a 20-year reduced prison sentence. His sentencing is scheduled for April 2013.
As part of his defense, the Digital Journal reports that Linn told the court that he was “riled up” from watching Fox News and consuming “45 beers” over a span of seven hours before committing his crime.
When the judge asked whether Linn actually knew any Muslims, the defendant replied, “No, I only know what I hear on Fox news and what I hear on [conservative talk] radio.”
“Muslims are killing Americans and trying to blow stuff up,” Linn added. “Most Muslims are terrorists and don’t believe in Jesus Christ.”
Upon being arrested for the arson, Linn reportedly told officers, “ those Muslims… they would kill us if they got the chance.”
