Hate Crime Arsonist Says FOX News Got Me “Riled Up”

Fire, firearms and fiery hate speech -- a lethal combination.

An Indiana man faces a sentence of 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to hate crimes stemming from brandishing a handgun and setting a fire in Islamic center. Randolph Linn, 52, of St. Joe, Indiana says he targeted the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, Ohio because he drove by it many times while on the road as a truck driver and had been "riled up" by watching Fox News.

“Every day you turn on the TV, you see Muslims trying to kill Americans,” he said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. When asked whether he thinks all Muslims are terrorists, Linn reportedly responded, “I’d say most of them are.”

“And I was more sad when Judge [Jack] Zouhary asked him that, ‘Do you know any Muslims or do you know what Islam is?’” a member of the mosque told WNWO after the hearing. “And he said, ‘No, I only know what I hear on Fox News and what I hear on radio.’”

His statement says it all, doesn't it?
