Merry Christmas, also somehow we’re allowing scumbags who tried to bomb and murder Americans in the name of Allah to spread propaganda to radicalize inmates in prison!! Amazing.
The man convicted in the 2016 bombing in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood that injured 30 people has been trying to radicalize other inmates, federal prosecutors say.
Ahmad Khan Rahimi also told a judge he is on a hunger strike.
Rahimi provided inmates with copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials, including speeches by Osama Bin Laden and the late militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, bomb making instructions, books on jihad and issues of the al Qaeda-backed magazine Inspire, prosecutors said.
Rahimi “has been attempting to radicalize fellow inmates in the Metropolitan Correction Center by, among other things, distributing propaganda and publications issued by terrorist organizations,” according to a letter from Acting US Attorney Joon H. Kim to US District Judge Richard Berman.
Rahimi let other inmates view the items on his laptop and gave them electronic copies, Kim’s letter said. Discs of the materials were found in two inmates’ possession.
It’s just so odd how little we think to protect our civilization – we just take it for granted that the society we depend on will be there forever without us defending it and shoring it up. And that is a big mistake.
