And once again we see a “Peace Loving” Muslim being “peaceful.”
This time a peaceful Islamic scumbag was convicted by a federal jury in 2016, and handed a 35-year sentence this week, on charges of trying to give material support to the Islamic State terrorist group. What is worse about this particular case is that this scumbag is a United States Air Force veteran.
What makes everything even more terrifying is that it’s being reported that back in 2001, while this scumbag worked for American Airlines of all places, one of Tairod Pugh’s co-workers told the FBI that he had expressed sympathy and solidarity with Osama bin Laden. The coworker went on to say that Pugh felt that the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies overseas and the attack on the USS Cole were justified. Of course, he also expressed rabid anti-American feelings and ideas.
(CNN) — A U.S. Air Force veteran convicted for providing material support to the Islamic State group was sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday.
Tairod Pugh was convicted by a federal jury in 2016 on charges of trying to give material support to the Islamic State group and of obstruction of justice, according to the U.S. Justice Department indictment.
“The defendant turned his back on his country, and the military he once served, to attempt to join a brutally violent terrorist organization committed to the slaughter of innocent people throughout the world,” stated Acting United States Attorney Bridget Rohde.
Prosecutors allege that investigators discovered a letter on Pugh’s desktop computer saying he wanted to “use the talents and skills given to me by Allah to establish and defend the Islamic States,” and a chart of crossing points between Turkey and Syria, where the Islamic State group controls some territory.
Eric Creizman, Pugh’s lawyer, said at the time of Pugh’s conviction that he believed that there was reasonable doubt in the case.
“Our client maintained his innocence since day one, so we went to trial and put up the best fight we possibly could,” Creizman said. “It was a well tried case, an interesting case, because the whole thing was what they could glean from his state of mind from things he did, on the Internet and on the computer.”
“I think this case is good for the justice system. It’s good for the world to see that in this country, you get a trial by jury,” Creizman said. “In the Islamic State, people accused of crimes don’t get such fair treatment.”
Crossing the Middle East
Pugh, a convert to Islam, served in the Air Force from 1986 to 1990, according to the Justice Department.
Prosecutors presented evidence at the trial that Pugh traveled from Egypt to Turkey in an attempt to cross into Syria to join the Islamic State group for jihad, the news release says.
One piece of evidence was a letter Pugh wrote just before leaving for Turkey.
“I am a Mujahid. I am a sword against the oppressor and a shield for the oppressed. I will use the talents and skills given to me by Allah to establish and defend the Islamic State. There is only 2 possible outcomes for me. Victory or Martyr,” Pugh wrote in the note, prosecutors say….
In 2001, while working for American Airlines, one of Pugh’s coworkers told the FBI that Pugh “sympathized with Osama bin Laden, felt that the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies overseas was justified and expressed anti-American sentiment,” according to his criminal complaint.
Because we live in a society where people’s feelings are more important than their very lives. Not even his co-worker at American Airlines dared to question him about his anti-American rants or about his affinity to Islam and their God awful jihad they have going on against the civilized world. If he would have he would have been branded as “Islamophobic,” which is a word that doesn’t even exist in the English dictionary but was actually a word created by leftist fascists who hate American and the civilized world as much as the Muslims do.
All we have to do is look at our colleges and we can see we are in serious trouble. Whites are so terrified of being branded whatever new name the left comes up with that particular week that they ignore what’s right in front of their noses. This wasn’t what Martin Luther King Jr. had in mind!
Seriously. How much longer will us in the civilized world put up with this crap? When will we finally say “Who cares if I get called an Islamaphobe, bigot, racist, or whatever other “phobe” the left wants to make up to call us freedom loving American Patriots before we snap out of this phobia of calling a duck, a duck?
