The embedded player on the website is a bit weird and I just saw the
title at the beginning:
Judge Jeanine Pirro slams Tsarnaevs jihadist mother
Then there's the article all over the page
MAKING SYMPATHY IMPOSSIBLE:
One of the more irritating things to come out of the Boston bombing is the constant media presence of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, whose sons Tamerlan and Dzhokhar stand accused of being the Boston Marathon bombers. (Actually, the accusation against Tamerlan is posthumous, as he died following a shootout with police, after his brother ran him over.)
Since her sons became public figures, Zubeidat has been glorying in her moment in the spotlight, so much so that, when one watches the videos, it’s impossible to tell if she is genuinely distraught or if she is a drama queen delighting in her massive audience. One wants to feel sympathy for a mother who has lost her children, no matter how terrible her children are, but she makes sympathy impossible.

In one hysteric rant, Zubeidat wildly insists that, with her older son dead, she no longer cares about her younger son, only to assure Americans that, if her younger son dies, she “will say Allahu Akbar
,” a cry Americans have learned precedes terrorist attacks. In another video one learns that, as far as Zubeidat is concerned “America took my kids away from me. Only America.”
That’s a rather peculiar charge to make considering that America took the Tsarnaevs in, treated them generously, and let them stay despite Tamerlan’s felony assault on a girlfriend, Zubeidat’s arrest for theft, the welfare that flowed to both of them, and the fact that both were on a terrorist watch list.
If Zubeidat’s bipolar behavior, which sees her cycling from whining to threatening, irritates you, you’re not the only one. Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro has also had it up to here and beyond with Zubeidat’s ingratitude. There were probably lots of times in court that former prosecutor Pirro wished that she could tell the judge exactly what she thought of the defendant on trial. Now, on Fox, she can and does. To that end, Pirro lets loose with an almost seven-minute-long tirade
responding to Zubeidat’s public statements.
You’ll definitely want to watch the whole video, but here are some highlights.
In response to Zubeidat’s peculiar claim that she doesn’t care if Dzhokhar is killed, Pirro asks rhetorically “Does that sound like a mother already devastated by the death of one son or a woman on her own radical jihad willing to sacrifice yet another son in honor of their God?”
Pirro was especially offended by Zubiedat’s claim that America took her sons from her:
Really? America took your son’s from you? They’ve killed Americans; they injured more than two hundred; (and) blinded, deafened, and blew the legs and arms off of innocent civilians, turning the city of Boston into a lock-down war zone of casualties, amputees, and a future of post-traumatic stress. And America should protect you?
Your sons killed us. We’re the ones who needed the protection and you ask “Why did I even go there?” I’ll tell you why: You came to suck the fat of our land, to take our money, to educate your terrorists sons, to steal from us, to go on public assistance, to get housing and food stamps while you drive your Mercedes Benz — all the while your family (was) going back and forth to the very country from which you claimed political refuge.
Pirro contrasts Zubeidat’s unemployed sons, who committed felonies, collected welfare, smoked pot, and traveled back and forth between America and Chechnya, with the lives of ordinary Americans:
Most Americans can’t even afford a vacation. They’re losing their homes. If they’re lucky enough to have a job, they live check to check. The elderly choose between food and medicine. Servicemen and women are getting cuts in their benefits.
And then when hard working Americans want to know how you guys can afford this, the governor of Massachusetts refuses to reveal what kind of taxpayer assistance your son Tamerlan got on the grounds of privacy. Privacy? What privacy? Governor, you take our money and you give it this dirt bag and you want to protect his privacy, you want to protect his rights? He’s dead, he’s a terrorist. He has no rights.
The subject of privacy reminds Pirro that one of the topsy-turvy problems in Obama-world is that accused wrongdoers are given more protections than law-abiding citizens
: “It’s okay to invade my privacy and to publish my name and where I live on an interactive map because I’m a lawful gun owner.”
Pirro is also upset about what she sees as the Obama administration’s obsession with world opinion.
The Obama administration at breakneck speed rushes in a federal judge, stops the FBI in the middle of a high-value interrogation to arraign your son and shower him with even more rights. The right to remain silent; the right to an attorney; unparalleled medical care — all the protections of our constitution. Why? Because the president and his buddy Eric Holder want the world to think better of us. They want the world to see American justice at its best. Really? They hate us. They chant death to America. They burn us an effigy. We give them billions, and F-16s, and armored tanks, as they laugh all the way to the bank and the airfield. And when they kill us, we don’t even send in reinforcements, like the four fighting in Benghazi. And we want them to like us? Honestly, I don’t much care about what the world thinks of us or our criminal justice system. They come here to kill us and we worry about what they think of us. I don’t want to show the rest of the world how our system works. I honestly don’t give a damn.
Some of us part ways with Pirro regarding the health care Dzhokhar got. We extended care to Dzhokhar after he was arrested because that’s what a civilized people does. We’re not proving anything to anybody but ourselves. Also, if he died, his knowledge died with him.
Otherwise, she’s got a point: Our focus should be on our system – it’s response to war and the way it handles justice – without regard to nations that take our money and export their terrorism. As for the magistrate who rushed into read Dzhokhar his Miranda rights, there may be something bigger than “image” going on there.
Pirro’s rant is a fine rant indeed but, as with all angry statements, it needs to be read with a grain of salt. It’s doubtful that a reputable former federal prosecutor and judge really wants our government to be that dismissive of due process. After all, considering that Americans fear our government more than they fear terrorists
, the government needs to be more upstanding than ever, not less.Americans fear our government more than they fear terrorists
