Otis O'Neal Horsley, Jr. (born 1944) is a militant anti-abortionist known for producing a website which provided the home addresses of abortion providers in the United States, for admitting on Fox News television to practising bestiality in his youth,[1][2][3] and for being arrested on charges of terroristic threats against singer Elton John.

The "Nuremberg Files"

The Nuremberg Files is a website that displays the names and locations of various doctors who perform abortions throughout the United States. They came under fire as controversial because they provided photos, addresses, and other personal data of abortion providers. They also updated the listings of those doctors who had been injured or murdered by "pro-life" individuals, indicating their approval for the elimination of the provider.

While the original site was shut down in 2002, it has reappeared more than once on other ISPs. Horsley has been forced to change his Internet service provider numerous times due to the site's content, and his website has been hacked on several occasions.

It has been stated that information from the Nuremberg Files site was used by James Charles Kopp to track down and kill Buffalo doctor Barnett Slepian in 1998. [2] Kopp fled the country (becoming a fugitive in Canada) but allegedly maintained contact with Horsley while on the run. Kopp was later arrested in France and extradited to New York, where he is serving a 25-year prison sentence.

After Slepian's murder, Planned Parenthood's president Gloria Feldt denounced Horsley's website at a press conference. The publicity generated hundreds of thousands of hits (Horsley claims 400,000). Horsley was named as a co-conspirator in a successful civil suit, Planned Parenthood v. American Coalition of Life Activists,[4] filed by Planned Parenthood over the information compiled by him and "Unwanted Posters" of doctors, which was judged by the court to constitute a threat of violence, even without an explicit call to violence. The U.S. Supreme court has twice refused to hear the case, upholding the ruling, but asking that the punitive damages be reconsidered.[3] Punitive damages were reduced from $108 million to $4.7 million. The ruling also provides for $11 million in treble damages and $526,000 in compensatory damages.[4][5]

As part of the judgment, Horsley was to take down the "Nuremberg Files" section of his website. The verdict was later overturned on appeal, and the files returned. The case was reheard en banc, and the court determined that the files constituted constitutionally unprotected "true threats". Karin Spaink ran a mirror of the site in the Netherlands for about a week after the district court decision. She ultimately decided to remove the mirror.
[edit] Waagner incident

In 2001, self-described militant Clayton Waagner, an armed bank robber who had escaped from an Illinois prison, showed up at Horsley's home brandishing a gun. Horsley alleges that Waagner told him that he was stalking and planned to kill 42 abortion clinic workers who were profiled on the website, and presented evidence that he was the author of hundreds of phony anthrax letters that had been sent to abortion clinics and elected officials. Going to the media after his meeting with Waagner brought more attention to Horsley and his website. Waagner was arrested in December 2001, and is now serving a lengthy prison sentence.[5]

Although Horsley claims he advocated an alternative route of campaigning for secession, he does not doubt that many of those in his circle who resorted to violence were led by God to do so to show it was not an effective means for bringing about an end to Roe v. Wade. He calls those who engaged in violence terrorists, but also says that terrorism is a sanctioned means of achieving God's law, and a tactic explicitly supported in scripture.
[edit] Lawsuits

During an appearance on Upfront Tonight on CNBC, Geraldo Rivera accused Horsley of "aiding and abetting a homicide" in the Slepian murder. Horsley sued Rivera for libel and slander, but the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals found against Horsley, concluding that Rivera was merely "expressing his belief that Horsley shared in the moral culpability for Dr. Slepian's death".[6] Horsley also unsuccessfully sued Glorida Feldt of Planned Parenthood and Kim Gandy of the National Organization for Women for similar statements.[7]
[edit] Secession and Run for Governor

Horsley is running in 2010 as a candidate for governor under his Creator's Rights Party on a nullification platform. He said he was willing to kill his own son, who is a Sergeant in the Army, if he were sent to Georgia to stop him from seceding, and admitted to nearly killing his son once before.[8]
[edit] Elton John incident

Horsley was arrested in Carrollton, Georgia on March 12, 2010 by police on charges of terroristic threats, making criminal defamation and using the Internet to disseminate threats in relation to a February 28, 2010 video[9] which he had posted on his YouTube account; the video showed him holding a sign saying "Elton John must die" and him saying that "What Elton John has done is desecrated the image of the Lord Jesus Christ, blasphemed the Lord Jesus Christ," in relation to John's public comment that Jesus was a "compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems." The video showed Horsley holding the sign in front of what he believed to be John's condo in Carrollton, although John's publicist refused to confirm the exact location of his house in the Atlanta metropolitan area.[10][11]



Claims to fame: Christian Reconstructionist; anti-abortion extremist; murder enabler; animal lover

Moral apex: Too many to count, or weigh against one another. In fact, Horlsey is such an all-around whack-job, we don’t even know where to begin. So we’ll just give you a few…

Memorable observations and quotes:

At first glance, Neal Horsley appears to be the merry old uncle of his neighborhood on a cul-de-sac in a middle-class Atlanta suburb.

Irreverent, amusing and animated, Horsley seems for all the world a warm and faithful husband, a friend to children, an iconoclastic conversationalist and wry commentator on the state of the world.

A second look reveals an entirely different Horsley — the implacable enemy of homosexuals who promises regularly to “arrest faggots,” a man who proposes to use nuclear weapons in a bid for Southern secession, the Scripture-quoting theocrat who wants to force his version of Bible law on American society.

This is the Horsley that rails on about “desecration,” “pagans,” “lust” and “perverted tolerance.”

And then there is the Neal Horsley who boasts to a young acolyte about having sex with men and with mules, the aging Vietnam War protester who says that “smoking dope, fucking and boozing, that’s who I am naturally.”

The Horsley who served 2 1/2 years in federal prison for dealing hashish oil. The Horsley who put up photographs on his Web site of naked men engaging in homosexual acts and a nude woman engaging in bestiality amid shots of grotesquely maimed fetuses.

Who is the real Otis O’Neal Horsley?

As strange as it may seem, Horsley is all of these things. And he is a great deal more. …

His most notorious operation — and the one that brought him national attention — was the Nuremberg Files website. The site has been subject to several court cases since he first set it up several years ago. The Nuremberg Files originally included a collection of names, addresses and, whenever possible, telephone numbers, license-plate numbers and Social Security numbers — sometimes photos — of abortion providers, clinic workers, and abortion-rights supporters. The site also solicited videos and photographs, and provided the names and birth dates of the providers’ spouses and children. Health care workers still providing services were listed in black, those that had been murdered had a line struck through their names, and the wounded were grayed-out. Critics called the files a de facto hit-list from which clinic stalkers have drawn names of future targets.

The site says that the information garnered will be used to prosecute abortion providers when abortion becomes illegal, just as Nazi leaders were prosecuted after the Second World War. Many observers, however, worry that this information has been and will be used for a more violent, threatening purpose.

The list of abortion providers at The Nuremberg Files site reads like a list of targets for assassination.

On the evening of Oct. 23, 1998, a sniper shot and killed Dr. Barnett Slepian as he stood with his wife and son in the kitchen of his home in East Amherst, N.Y. The death of Dr. Slepian would soon make a celebrity of Neal Horsley.

In the hours following the assassination of Dr. Barnett Slepian… Horsley “struck through” the doctor’s name. An international media firestorm followed, and Horsley’s site became widely regarded as a “hit list.”

“I got to Barnett Slepian’s name,” he told Atlanta. “And all of a sudden I … realized: When I draw a line through his name, under these circumstances, they are going to freak fucking out. … And I said, let’s do it. Let ‘er rip!”

The next day, Planned Parenthood President Gloria Feldt held a press conference to denounce the Nuremberg Files, which she characterized as a “list of abortion doctors marked for death.” Two days later, Horsley claims, the site received 400,000 hits — almost twice as many as the monthly total up to that point.

Southern Poverty Law Center

…Horsley and his Web site were dealt a major blow in federal court. In a 6-5 decision, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that members of the American Coalition of Life Activists had illegally threatened abortion doctors by publishing Old West “Wanted”-style posters identifying a dozen doctors and including detailed information about them, including their home addresses, on Horsley’s “Nuremberg Files” Web site. Two previous murders of abortion doctors had been preceded by similar posters. Four of the doctors sued. Horsley later began crossing through the names of doctors murdered by antiabortionists and graying out those who were wounded.

Since these denunciations, and his legal setbacks, Horsley has beaten a hasty, apparently tactical retreat. The photographs and videos of people coming and going from clinics are still up. But the struck-through names of the dead, and the grayed-out names of the wounded, are gone. So are the listings for President George W. Bush and former President Bill Clinton, and the names of the six-judge majority of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the original trial judge. Strangely, the names of the six justices of the U.S. Supreme Court whose voting record on abortion Horsley disapproves of are still listed on the Nuremberg Files.

Tired of getting dumped by a number of web servers [Horsley] … decided to create his own Internet Service Provider and web-hosting company… Horsley told Wired News that he realized he “could appeal to abortion abolitionist people to convert from companies like AOL that aggressively support abortion.”

Horsley’s more recent anti-abortion adventure in harassment is his Through posting photographs of clients and workers entering and leaving abortion clinics, Horsley hopes to stigmatize them out of having and/or participating in an abortion.
