Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito believes that not only should Muslims be allowed to grow beards in prison, but that jail guards should be required to “comb through them” if they are concerned about security. HUH? When even Alito subscribes to this absurdity, you know we’ve lost the Court–and America–irreparably. And that’s exactly the situation in the case of Gregory Holt a/k/a Abdul Maalik Muhammad, a convert to Islam who trained in Yemeni terrorist camps, who is in prison for life.
Don’t Worry, Be ISIS: Justice Alito Sides with Islam, Terrorists & Abdul Maalik Muhammad Against Prison Security
Several months ago, I warned conservatives not to cheer the Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby, contraception, and ObamaCare. I said it would be used in favor of Muslims to our detriment. And I was right. Holt a/k/a Muhammad used the language of the decision and its expansion of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act to his advantage at the U.S. Supreme Court, this week. And ALL of the Justices seemed to be on his side, so I predict they will be unanimous in allowing this dangerous cretin to grow his beard in prison and hide who-knows-what in it.
Yes, this Muslim prisoner’s beard is only a half-inch in length. But tomorrow, another Muslim will argue for an inch in length or three-quarters of an inch, long enough in which to hide a razor blade. In fact, a blade can be fashioned that is less than half an inch.
And what does Justice Alito say about that? Well, he’s got a “fabulous” solution: prison guards will have to comb through the beards to find out if there is anything in them. He says that the prisons can force the inmates to do the combing, but you know they won’t be thorough, just like we know O.J. Simpson faked that the gloves didn’t fit. So, the guards will end up being the ones doing the combing . . . if they want the prisons to remain secure. Yeah, that’s the ticket: force guards to become at once cosmetology school interns and put themselves in unnecessary proximity to dangerous Muslim prisoners in the process.
The justices turned to the question of whether Muslim prisoner Gregory Holt’s half-inch beard could threaten the security of the Arkansas prison system. No, most of the justices appeared to conclude — but they worried that the next cases might involve longer beards or other religious demands, with no end in sight. At what point, several of them said, should a state’s security interests surmount a prisoner’s religious rights? . . . Read the rest of this entry »
