American Taliban’s Gay Dad Applauds Son’s Absurd Lawsuit for Islam, Terrorist Mtgs in Prison

By Debbie Schlussel

If you ever wonder why a spoiled American kid becomes an Islamic terrorist, you need only look to “parents” like Frank Lindh, dad to convicted Taliban terrorist John Walker Lindh. He’s applauding his son’s ridiculous lawsuit (filed by the terrorists’ and criminals’ lobby, the ACLU) against the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Lindh filed the suit because he isn’t allowed to engage in Islamic prayer with a group of other Islamic prisoners on a regular basis and must pray alone most of the time.

Gay Father Frank Lindh (far right) Praises American Terrorist Son John Walker Lindh’s Fight for Anti-Gay Islam

But Islamic law doesn’t require group prayer, as an imam already testified to. And, frankly, none of the prisoners should be allowed to pray together. There is an entire wing of hardened convicted Islamic terrorists in the Terre Haute, Indiana federal prison where John Walker Lindh is housed, including Ghazi Ibrahim Abu Mezer, a convicted HAMAS terrorist who plotted to blow up the New York subway so he could kill as many Jews as possible. He nearly succeeded, but for his roommate telling the cops just an hour or so before he carried out the attack. These prisoners want to pray in a group so that they can plot attacks on guards, prison breaks, and terrorist attacks. It’s not rocket science stuff to know this. And John Walker Lindh is clearly still a Muslim and still a Muslim terrorist who doesn’t renounce his Taliban activities targeting American soldiers for death. There’s a reason he’s being held in the “Communications Management Unit.” We want to strictly “manage” his communications with fellow terrorists. It’s obvious Lindh couldn’t care less about praying with other Muslims. He wants to discuss and plan terrorism with other Muslims.

And, yet, Frank Lindh is proud of his son for fighting for the right to convene with other Islamic terrorists to plot and scheme. Sadly, Papa Lindh is free in America. But he is clearly no different than his son in terms of his sympathies. They aren’t with America. And that’s why his son turned out the way he is. Real American parents would be ashamed of–no, horrified by–their son. The Lindhs remain ever proud and ever despicable. While not all parents are responsible for the behavior of their children, some clearly are, as in this case.

The Lindh parents clearly think it’s cool that their son is the homegrown terrorist that is the ultimate fantasy result of their far-left sagging ’70s and ’60s beliefs. Like I said, Frank Lindh belongs in a cell with his own prayer mat in Terre Haute, since his “parenting” clearly bred what was intended.

The father of John Walker Lindh, the young American who was captured in Afghanistan after 9/11 and sentenced to prison for aiding the Taliban against U.S. troops, said he is proud of his son for fighting in court today for the right to pray with other Muslim prisoners.

“I was really proud of John,” Frank Lindh told “Today he did such a good job of explaining the daily prayer. It was a really well informed testimony. It shows how much depth of knowledge he has about Islam.”

John Lindh, who pleaded guilty to helping the Taliban and carrying explosives, testified in court today that a prison policy limiting group prayer has forced him to sin.

Lindh, 31, is suing prison officials for the right to pray five times a day with fellow Islamic inmates instead of praying alone in his cell.

It’s noteworthy that father Lindh is more proud of his son’s knowledge of Islam than he is embarrassed that his son plotted to murder his fellow Americans and delivered the explosives to the Taliban to carry that out. Contrast Daddy Dearest Lindh with Melvin Bledsoe, another father of an American terrorist, who decries what Islam did to his son. That’s the way it should be. Also note that Frank Lindh is openly gay and “married” his partner. We all know how he and his “husband” would go over in Taliban country or anywhere in Islam. Both would be executed, after being tortured. But Frank Lindh thinks that Islam is cool. Idiot. And he campaigned against Proposition 8 in California, while his beloved Islam–a ton of mosques–campaigned for it. Talk about hypocrisy and not connecting the dots. Yup, only Mormon churches need be attacked, right?

His parents had separated and his father, Frank Lindh, had declared himself gay, while his mother, Marilyn Walker wandered into New Age spiritualism. When their 16-year-old son converted to Islam and started roaming the suburban malls in kaftan and skullcap, they encouraged his “spiritual journey” even when it led a year later, in July 1998, to a pilgrimage to Yemen to learn Arabic and study in the religious schools of Sana’a. His mother looked Yemen up on the internet, and despite the country’s reputation for kidnapping and religious extremism, allowed her quiet, brainy and eccentric child to leave.

New Age morons Frank Lindh and his ex-wife are no different than some jerk in urban America who fathers 15 kids with 10 different women and abandons them. They did just as much damage to America with the way they raised their son and the way Mr. Lindh continues to support his son’s clear attempts to subvert America’s national security from inside prison.

The babydaddy who abandons his kids never teaches them how to behave like decent men and women and to love America. Daddy Lindh clearly taught his son how to behave like a terrorist and an America-hater.

Which is worse? I vote the latter.

‘We all know how he and his “husband” would go over in Taliban country or anywhere in Islam. Both would be executed, after being tortured. But Frank Lindh thinks that Islam is cool. Idiot.’

There are many on the left who as Debbie states would be immediately tortured and killed by Islamists were they to have the chance. However these leftists have chosen to ally themselves with Islamists. I just don’t get it.

Can someone please explain this phenomenon to me?

I_AM_ME on September 6, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Ugh…why do some of my people have to be utter morons….

Robert on September 6, 2012 at 3:57 pm

His sentence for killing Americans is so much shorter than that of Jonathan Pollard whose information led to the Israeli destruction of the Iraqi nuclar weapons facility.

Lindh should have been electroluted in the electric chair while his father sat in his lap.

Jonathan E. Grant on September 6, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    Exactly, Jon.

    JeffE on September 6, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    That “pop sittin’ in the lap” twofer fryer…do we need a coupon to get that? Because I would like to speak for the group and say we really, really want that. Thanks man. The mental image made me laugh out loud.

    Greatrighthope on April 16, 2014 at 11:35 am

Frank Lindh — what a putz!

Seek on September 6, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Do they get any crazier than this?

Please tell me “NO”.

“Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies…”

There’s something about the idea of imagined comradeship with something dangerous… how it deludes one into being at peace with something that should be feared. Kind of like those who admire polar bears, think they’re cute and that their sympathies and feelings would cause them to be “friends” if they ever met one. The reality is that a polar bear would view them as food, and eat them just as quickly as the person who didn’t share their warm and fuzzy feelings.

Yup, daddy decides he is gay, so he dumps his wife and son to play house with his new boyfriend. How nice.

Worry01 on September 6, 2012 at 5:12 pm

John Lindh is an example of misplaced kindness. Perpetual isolation and limited visitation rights should be his normal regimen. The nature of his offenses warrant such treatment. If we were in a truly declared state of war, his execution would have been warranted.

Worry01 on September 6, 2012 at 5:20 pm

I doubt that Frank Lindh’s going to win “Father of the Year.” If my son turned out that way,I’d be embarrassed and ashamed. This idiot doesn’t feel shame.

Ghostwriter on September 6, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Leftism and Islam are a natural fit. Both hate America and if you hate America long enough, you’ll become an Islamic terrorist.

I don’t know why on earth the morons in the US military took Johnny Lindh Walker prisoner in the first place. He should have been executed on the spot in Afghanistan.

Leaving a traitor alive didn’t bring justice to Americans – people who want to harm us shouldn’t receive the benefit of due process of law or get ANY rights. Walker forfeited them when he betrayed his country.

And his SOB father Frank can go straight to hell, too!

NF: Spot on. They should have executed him, like you said. DS

Didn’t that pukey Steve Earle do a whole album reeking with sympathy for this filthy “Rat Boy”? They both are a-holes and Earle was a complete eff-up for some time so he seems to have sympathy for the devil to excuse his previous transgressions. Just nauseating. Off with both of their dumb heads!

I’m pretty gay-friendly (but I can’t stand Lefty gays) but this is why I have absolute contempt for gays who “pretend” they are not. His father is an effed up POS. And twice as stupid. I don’t celebrate gay frauds who marry women and mess up lives in a more devastating way than most sociopaths can. What a POS and an absolute destroyer.

Skunky on September 6, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    I made the point above. If you decide to get married and have a son, you do not just walk away from it the first time you get the hots for some dude. I would consider it to be just as bad if he had done that with some woman. Also, you can be sure that the “fun” began before he got his divorce. Frank Lindh could not even wait for his son to at least turn eighteen before flying the coop.

    Worry01 on September 6, 2012 at 8:10 pm

My office (apparently) used to be Steve Earle’s old phone number. I had no idea who he was or what he did until I finally asked one of the constant callers. The post above brought that all back..But back to the Pole-smoker father and terrorist son. Sickening…..just sickening

#1 Vato on September 6, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    LOL #1 Vato…what an interesting story. I’d hate to have that wicked, old Puke’s number. His music is really not bad but I don’t listen to his crap anymore. I like his wife’s music too (Allison Moorer…sister of Shelby Lynne (who I only like one song of) but haven’t bought her music lately either.)

    Skunky on September 6, 2012 at 9:08 pm


      Oh, you DO? How interesting! Please go on.

      There’s nothing more fascinating than your many, many posts, especially when they begin with “*I* [insert extremely boring and irrelevant personal detail here].”

      I don’t talk about myself all the time in my posts. Neither does Schlussel. But of course, neither of us are as “fascinating” as you. Oh wait, I forgot, you aren’t reading this! LOL

      Statusmonkey on September 7, 2012 at 1:03 am

Having a dad that disgusting would make me move to the desert and wear a sissy head scarf too.

gman213 on September 6, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Let’s play pop psychologist:

JW Lindh became a violent Muslim because he was angry with his father. His father betrayed him and his mother. Rather than focus his energies on John Walker, daddy decided to indulge himself. Hey pops, wait till your son is a fully-formed man, then announce the whole gay thing.

Frank Lindh is just another self-absorbed, selfish SOB. As I grew up in the area, let’s just say I know that Marin County is absolutely full of these arseholes.

adam on September 6, 2012 at 11:54 pm

That picture. Gross.

What more is there to say?

Effin’ gross!

Statusmonkey on September 7, 2012 at 1:07 am

Maybe dad is just practicing to be his own son’s bach-bazi boy.

CornCoLeo on September 7, 2012 at 1:21 am

I’ve said it before, and I guess I’ll have to say it again. When dad is a fudgepacker (or packee) you can’t be surprised when the son turns out like J.W.L. Or as Phil Leotardo on the Sopranos says “The turd doesn’t fall far from the faggot’s ass”.

CornCoLeo on September 7, 2012 at 1:26 am

I agree with Skunky when it comes to gay dudes marrying broads.

Men for the most part have more rigid sexual orientations than women; either they dig ladies or dudes, and are fully aware of it. Gay dudes might be conflicted, ashamed, or under duress, but they aren’t ignorant of what gets their tent pitched.

So marrying a woman, having kids, and building a life only to shatter it by leaving it for another dude is not any more excusable than leaving it all for a woman. So aside from the fact that James McGreevey should have been tried for treason, he’s a Santorum-filled douche for having so publicly abandoned his wife and kids.

Robert on September 7, 2012 at 3:31 am

    Nicely said Robert. These men are disgusting. Especially since the 80’s gays have come a long way (baby) and in 2012 there is NO EXCUSE to be behind the garment bags in the closet.

    But of course we are not to judge the screwy gays on their crap behaviour. I do thou’. And always will!

    Skunky on September 7, 2012 at 8:37 am

Great blog, Debbie. Well written AND hilarious! It may be the best “what’s wrong with this picture” anecdote I’ve ever seen. I love your wit!

Rodebaards on September 7, 2012 at 11:43 am

i don’t know what is wrong with today’s military because my uncle bob served in the 82nd airborne during WW11 and no ss man ever survived meeting uncle bob.they killed all of the ss men they caught.when i was a young paratrooper in viet nam we took no prisoners, we killed all the commies we could.the only thing we did wrong was in not going north after we rolled over the nva in 1968.this is why i do not under stand why this traitor is still alive. i do not under stand why the two ragheads who killed my nephew were not killed when they were captured by his friends in the 101st.we have to kill them all and let god sort them out like we did in WW11.

BRUCE on September 7, 2012 at 7:20 pm


    Because a soldier who did that today would be sent back to the rear and court-martialed for murder.

    Statusmonkey on September 8, 2012 at 7:53 am

this crap is why we lose wars!

BRUCE on September 10, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Debbie, You’ve only got part of the story right. Frank Lindh is not only gay, but a former DOJ attorney. I’ve met Marilyn and she’s not the new agey dipshit you make her out to be. Apparently John was really screwed up after finding out that his father was gay and started studying Islam along with a cousin (I believe on the father’s side) that had already converted. Marilyn was apparently already involved in divorce proceedings and worried about losing custody to her attorney ex husband when John disappeared. She told my friend personally (at a local meeting about custody problems) that she had no idea where her son had disappeared to, though she thought that Frank had been sending money to him in Yemen. We were told this months before he was found in Afghanistan.

Kishmir Intuchus on January 17, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Incredible insight Kishmer. Thanks for sharing. Hard to believe but the dad appears an even more pathetic character. I thought that not possible. There ya go.

    Greatrighthope on April 16, 2014 at 11:44 am

I don’t believe the father is happy about Islam. He is happy that his son can still make clear and well structured sentences. We were all watching photos from Lindhs investigation sessions. He went via hell and still appear as very decent. If they were not with America for sure America was not with them too. I do not know if Frank is a gay and which role has that in the case but I do understand you see homosexuality as equal problem to non- Christian religions. The article is well written in real daily language and thought of average Americans. Thank you!
