The Traitor Class

November 24, 2009

Last night Bill O’Reilly had a representative of the traitor class in his cross-hairs, an episode he re-visited tonight. The traitor class is easily defined as people who can’t identify a self-declared enemy of the United States even after he has killed 3,000 innocent people in an act of self-described holy war and is prepared to provide his talents and services gratis to help the enemy combatant attack this own country. Scott Fenstermaker is an attorney for Covington Burling, a white shoe law firm which has provided millions of dollars in pro bono legal work to Gitmo terrorists. A Covington partner is the brother of Weather terrorist Kathy Boudin, and the lawyer organizing the Gitmo pro bono defense team is family friend and political comrade Michael Ratner, head of the terrorist-supporting Center for Constitutional Rights, who has spent his life defending America’s enemies and serving anti-American causes. If you can’t describe the 3000 innocent victims of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed as “murdered” and your first move is to describe your own government’s case as propaganda, and you are devising a case to “justify” the evil deed your client has committed and won’t say that you would be upset if your country were to lose the case, and also if you’re a Jew and don’t have any problem defending an Islamic Nazi who beheaded Daniel Pearl after forcing him to say “I’m a Jew, I’m a Jew” — there can be only one explanation. You believe in the justification defense you are preparing, you think America and the Jews are guilty and deserve what they get, and you are a traitor. And much worse — only words are inadequate to describe just how low on the human scale you have sunk.

    What they ought to do to people like this is use international law to make a case for legal “natural rights” and sell their rights back to the British, who will use “natural rights” to summon royalists who would get on horseback, hunt them down like foxes, string them to horses, draw and quarter them, let the horses go running in the woods, find the torso missing a few limbs and keep beating them up until they died.

    Is this the guy O’Reilly called a weasel? (I ditched my cable TV and listen to FNC on satellite radio, so I don’t know what his guests look like.)

    He and his law partners will soon find out that their client is not only a mass murderer but an a-hole. All the Islamist defendants hold everybody and everything around them in contempt. KSM won’t be “impressed” by the transparency or fairness of our civilian legal system. He’ll despise it. He’ll despise his attorneys.

    But his attorneys will still go to bat for him–all the way to the Supreme Court, no doubt.

    I saw the O’Reilly interview with this man. All I can say is that it seems that in America today nothing shocks us any more. No matter how offensive the words or sentiments or actions, there is no shock value to them, none whatsoever. I think this country has lost something it will never get back. I am filled with so much sadness about it all.

    We–sane, rational products of Western civilization–find it easy to label fanatics proselytizing for a medieval faith as “monsters.” I prefer to view them as atavisms. The true monsters are the Scott Fenstermakers, Ramsey Clarks, Ward Churchills, William Kunstlers–the list goes on and on. These people go far beyond moral idiocy. They eagerly embrace pure evil. They revel in the perverseness of their hatred of a country that makes it possible for them to achieve fame and fortune. Imagine the sheer insanity of qubbling over whether the number of innocents murdered by the jihadists on 9/11 did or did not exceed 3,000. Words fail me.

    Thank you for pointing out the fact that some in the legal profession have sympathies for and admire terrorists for their ability to successfully attack America in a way they could not. Now it is their turn to lay out the groundwork in a way to sway opinion toward that justification, in the terrorist’s eyes. Critical legal theories will be used to define America as an oppressive, global force of entrenched interests bent on imposing their will on the downtrodden Muslim masses. One would think that no jury would find sympathy for self admitted mass murderers. Michael Ratner’s boyhood hero, Che Guevara, enjoyed killing and torture as much as KSM and his cohorts. These super radical lawyers like Kunstler, Stewart, Ratner and many others are part of a cadre, a vanguard in the education of America. They hate the whole concept of American ideals as false and hypocritical. They will use every marxist conceptual trick in its bag of subversive ideology. What they ultimately want is to have as many Americans as possible disillusioned about their country and its role as a leader among nations. This can be no simple defense. It will be a show trial and America will be found guilty. The only question is how long will we be subjected to this lesson from hell.

      And whereas KSM’s defense team will be the best that the cadre of America-hating scum can produce, we have to rely on an AG with a history of pardoning terrorists to prosecute these 7th century barbarians. This looks more and more like a replay of the OJ trial, with a prosecution team hopelessly outclassed by their opposition.

    When I first saw this schmuck on O’Reilly and saw his name “Fenstermaker”, my first thought was “thank G_d he’s not Jewish.” Now, it appears from this article that he is. Please say it ain’t so!

    Emmanuel and Axelrod, Obama and Holder, and the radicals behind them know all too well who the defense attorneys are, and this administration wants to put America on trial as much as the subversives at Covington. So if Fenstermaker and like-minded colleagues are traitors ….

    The insulting irony is that Fenstermaker, et al are doing this “pro bono publico”, for the public good.

    There is no better way to illuminate the absolute lunacy of extremist beliefs than to hear them spoken by an extremist. Keep talking Mr Fenstermaker, I’m all ears.

    The trial of KSM and friends is a political move, rather than another attempt by the administration to display for the world the merits of our judicial system. That AG Holder insists the latter, makes him either inept or honest-and-dumb. Scott Fenstermaker, of course, is seeking notoriety, and getting it, as he and his ilk try to change America. Those are the facts. Another fact is that taking prisoners like KSM always will spell trouble, and there is a simple remedy for that.

    Possible the nail in Obama’s coffin. This is an outrage no one can ignore! I believe even the Dems are appalled! The commies within their party, party on, though.

    For the first time in a long time, I wanted to hug O’Reilly. I hope he did forward the emails, not that the minds of most lunatics can be changed.
    Thank God Mr. H had an epiphany.

    He’s only a useful idiot to the slime he represents in court. Did you notice he made a joke at the expense of the victims and O’Reilly called him out on it? He is scum.

    The legal profession, as a whole, is well to the Left of most Americans. Remember, they did pro bono work for the Gitmo goons, carrying their water free of charge. My ex-wife (before we’d met) actually worked as a legal secretary for Covington Burling. They’re just a bunch of bullies with amicus briefs.

    There are no words in the English language to describe these people or those who sent O’Reilly emails after this segment who defended this trial and this man (or alien as the case may be.)

    It’s interesting to note that the same folks who insist that the Nazi’s have the right to march in Skokie, think Fox news should be banned.

    There can be no nice words for bums like these.
    As far as I am concerned Scott Fenstermaker the attorney and the sub human murders he is defending – can all be boiled in oil.

    I have to pray because I wish it was this shyster that was photographed falling through the air from the world trade center after jumping to escape the flames instead of the innocent person that showed up for work that day. I know it is wrong but I have to fight that bitterness every day in regard to these horrible people. In my whole career this is one of the greatest outrages I have seen regarding the misuse of our judicial system.

    Fenstermaker is a poster boy for the self-haters of the world. An inordinate number of these folks seem to be apostate Jews who suffer from what I term patriphobia – father hatred. This hatred extends to all male authority figures and derivitative male elements – especially god (atheism) – as well as capitalism; corporatism; the police; the military. The ACLU is the anti-male authority Special Forces. I’ve speculated on this at http:/ in an essay “Along Came Marx. Part 2”. In essence the Fenstermaker’s of the world are severely neurotic – probably unresolved Oedipal rage. IMO

    Great posts. I’m very disheartened also by this upcoming shameful display that our lefty administration is foisting on an exausted and overwhelmed public. If one good thing comes of this, it will be that some currently blind, deaf and dumb Americans will see just how cozy the left is to the murdering jihadists. Otherwise this is one more blow for American morale-which seems to be a goal for Team Zero.

    This was a match made in hell, with Eric Holder still receiving financial severance from Covington, is this not a conflict of interest?

    People around the country need to write into their local paper and attend their city council meeting regarding Eric Holder and Covington. Otherwise we are all negligent in defending each other….our fellow citizens who died in the towers and their loved ones who lost their family. The rule of law is a sacred bond between citizens.

    It is one thing to defend someone like KSM, but quite another to go on a publicity tour for them. This is what separates a normal criminal defense attorney from what Scott Fenstermaker is. This man is in his own way just as much of a monster as KSM. Mr. Fenstermaker is not doing his duty in preparing a legitimate defense of his client, but aiding and abetting Islamist propaganda. In the end, Eric Holder is only an employee of Barack Obama. Barack Obama signed off on this nonsense, and is simply using Mr. Holder as a stand-in.

    Great comments but did anyone think like I did? That O’Reilly really expected to get honest answers from this guy? This guys tap dancing and evasive double speak made the act of Heinz and Heinz look like the first round contestants on “So You Think You Can Dance!”

    O’Reilly made us all feel that he was shocked; I doubt it. Especially if his research team still maintains the accolades he gave them on a previous show; that of being the best in the busines!

      BOR is all show, no go. He knew exactly what was coming, otherwise he would not have had the shyster on the program. He has to protect his ratings, which I think must be falling as viewers tire of his narcissistic self. I think, as I noted long ago, Beck should be in BOR’s time slot. BOR could be traded to replace the other loud mouth, Chris Matthews, without consequence.

    The trial for these murdering pigs is nothing more than a forum to continue to advance the notion of victimization of Islam by Israel and the USA. It is convenient rhetoric that has beguiled the the uninformed for decades. Meanwhile Sharia law is incrementally advanced throughout the west by political, legal and violence. Never mind the attacks in Arkansas and Ft. Hood. It is coincidence that the killers were Muslims. In the cases in Illinois, Detroit, Dallas, Ft. Dix, Seattle, Charlotte and Salt Lake City it was just a coincidence that the perpetrators were all Muslims, it doesn’t have anything to do with religion.
    Islams rage does not come from the “Occupation” of Palestinian land by Israel. The rage of Islam is directed at Israel because it is the only non-Islamic state in the region. Islam seeks Israels eradication to purify the Muslim lands of non-believers.
    When Hitler did this it was racist and genocidal. They called it apartheid in South Africa. So why is it that when Muslims seek to exterminate a religion or a race of people it is justified?
    It is a sad day when lawyers use the mass media as a forum to justify genocide as a means of advancing religious dogma.
    Finally, for all you folks sleeping out there, do you really think that when we leave Iraq or Afghanistan or cease to support Israel that all these terrorist are just going to go home and leave us all to live in peace?
    America did not deserve what happened to it on 9-11. We were not attacked because we oppressed Palestine. We were attacked because we are a threat to those who would advance Sharia law at the point of a gun or with a bomb.
    Shame on the lawyers and politicians who are in fact spitting on the graves of the fallen to advance a pro-Sharia agenda.
