John Joseph Jay is the owner of the blog Summer Patriot, Winter Soldier, most famous (though still pretty obscure) for his views on the war on terror. Jay has suggested that we should “kill [Muslims] in sufficient number and with sufficient purpose and zeal that it causes them to stop killing us, and then we should kill them a little bit more, just to drive the point home.” That is, instead of waging a war on terror, we “should declare war on iran, syria, egypt and saudi arabia, as well as libya and the sudan and somalia, and we should kill people by the scores. no science. no precision bombing. no shock and awe designed to ‘impress’ and send ‘signals,’ but old fashion war with wholesale slaughter including indiscriminate death of innocents and babes. down to the last muslim, if necessary.” Jay responded to criticism by pointing out that The Left is lying about him since Muslims are murderous, which isn’t really pertinent to the content of the criticisms. It’s not only Muslims, though; to combat the liberals who at least up until recently were running the country (apparently, to Jay, a front for the Black Panthers, who were apparently contemplating FEMA concentration camps) “you are going to have to kill folks, your uncles, your sons and daughters, to preserve those liberties.” After all, The Left is, according to Jay, prepared to kill you, as demonstrated by the fact that abortion is legal.
It is a bit unclear to what extent and in what role Jay is involved with Pam Geller’s and Robert Spencer’s group Stop the Islamization of America. Daily Kos has described him as a “SIOA co-founder”, something he has denied. Spencer has referred to him as a SIOA board member, though.
Diagnosis: Not among the good guys; that’s for sure
