As you may have heard, today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of upholding laws against material support to terrorists in Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project. As you may recall, back in February, I wrote a column about this legal challenge, and I’m glad that supporters of Islamic terrorism lost their specious argument that this was a violation of the First Amendment. As you may recall, I reported that the “Wise Latina” Justicette, So-So, compared helping terrorists to mere harmonica lessons. Fortunately, she was only able to convince two of her colleagues, Ginsburg and Breyer, of this stupidity. Yup, 3,000 Americans murdered in one day, and that idiotette compared those complicit in the mass murder to harmonica teachers.
Most Supremes Didn’t Buy Wise Latina’s “Harmonica Lessons” Version of Terrorism
As I noted then, those challenging the law really had no interest in the First Amendment. They had an interest in helping terrorists succeed and getting around our laws making it harder for them. The cast of characters on the side of overturning the law was telling, including David Cole, lead attorney in the case. As I noted, he’s Islamic Jihad terrorist Sami Al-Arian’s brother-in-law, Mazen Al-Najjar’s lawyer. (Thankfully, he failed in that matter, too, and Al-Najjar was deported.)
And, frankly, the laws on this are not nearly tough enough nor used sufficiently to stop Islamic terrorists. Since 2001, wimpy Justice Department officials have charged only about 150 people with providing material support to terrorists. Of those, only 75 have been convicted. The other 75 faced O.J. Simpson-style juries–including the morons who heard the Sami Al-Arian case–whom I’d love to have in the jury box if I ever commit murder.
Harmonica lessons, indeed. Thankfully, six of the nine in black robes weren’t as stupid as the Wise Latina chick on this.
