Ted Nugent has reacted to the arrest of one of the Boston Marathon bombers in exactly the manner one would expect, with an inane explosion of ignorant rage that boils down to “let’s kill him as quickly as possible.” And for some reason, he thinks this has something to do with voodoo.
f the bombing, killings and maiming of Bostonians by the two voodoo whack-job jihadists in Boston isn’t maddening enough, the next tsunami of insults should drive any American addicted to common sense crazy.
The jihadist punk in custody is obviously guilty of committing murder, terrorist acts and a whole book of other crimes, but he won’t be brought to justice.
Justice is supposed to be swift. At least that’s how our Founding Fathers thought it should be.
I love it when idiots try to enlist the Founding Fathers in defense of their simpleton views. They did believe that a trial should be relatively swift, of course, guaranteeing a speedy trial in the Bill of Rights. Nugent weirdly thinks that it’s the defense that will want to delay things:
Imagine if this jihadist punk had basically committed the same crimes 150 years ago. He would have been swinging from an oak tree in Boston Common no longer than 60 days from the date of his arrest. That would be justice.
But that won’t happen to this guilty voodoo vermin. If he’s ever executed, it will be many years from now after our so-called justice system goes through its strange eternal, time-wasting, court-and-lawyer maneuvers from hell. The ugly truth is that by the time this voodoo punk is executed, America will probably have had to deal with any number of other bombings and killings by other voodoo nuts.
He probably won’t go to trial for more than a year due to court-sanctioned delays.
Yeah, who needs courts and lawyers? Oh wait, those Founding Fathers he just invoked guaranteed those things. And the trial will take a long time not because of defense lawyers but because of the prosecution. Defense attorneys don’t want their clients sitting in jail for a long time. When speedy trials don’t happen, it’s almost always because of the government, not the accused, and it sure as hell isn’t because they’re so intent on lavishing the defendant with undeserved due process rights.
And there’s that word “voodoo” again. I have no idea what he thinks it means, but he uses it 16 times in this column. Maybe it popped up on his Build Your Vocabulary in a Year desk calendar or something.
A perfect example of justice delayed is terminal voodoo mass murderer Nidal Malik Hasan, who killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood in 2009. Allahu Akbar, my ass.
This voodoo punk’s trial is finally set to begin on May 29 of this year – almost four long years after he shouted “Allahu Akbar” and began his voodoo-inspired rampage in yet another gun-free zone.
This four-year dastardly delay to bring this guilty punk to justice is damnable.
Dastardly? Have you ever heard that word outside of a cartoon? That’s appropriate, of course, because Nugent’s ideas are always cartoonish. What he doesn’t realize, apparently, is that Hasan’s trial is taking place in a military court, not a civilian one. You know, the ones that the wingnuts are demanding for Tsarnaev because, they argue, they won’t have to worry about all that pesky due process stuff.
Isn’t it funny how the people who most ostentatiously declare themselves to be Real Americans who adore the founding fathers are the very first ones to throw that whole Bill of Rights thing that they wrote right out the window and who seem to think that our justice system can’t handle cases like this?
