Shock: Jihadi Who Threatened South Park Over Mohammad Cartoon Was... Obama Volunteer in 2008

Pretty sure he's in the Tea Party.

In U.S. District Court filings, Chesser’s lawyer and family members described him as a passionate young man whose interests pinballed from subject to subject (sports, Japanese anime, break dancing, heavy metal, Buddhism, Islam) and often turned on a dime. His attorney reported that despite Chesser’s “increasing devotion to a rigid form of Islam,” he “volunteered to campaign in the 2008 presidential election.” However, “by the time the election came on November 4, 2008, Mr. Chesser had become convinced it would be a violation of Islamic law to vote.”

In a character letter, Chesser’s stepmother recalled him “ranting about how the Koran says he can’t support Obama even though he had signed up to help with the campaign."

Wait, let me get this straight -- he was faddish, leftist, and looking for some kind of grand supernatural narrative to make sense of his insignificance and emptiness.

But then-- how could he have wound up volunteering for Obama? That just makes no damn sense to me.

As the media continues to make shit up to pin on conservatives, they also continue to studiously ignore and suppress anything that might look liberals and Obama supporters look bad.

I Pledge... Commenters note Ashton Kutcher's "serve your president" fadvertisement.


Unrelated, of course, is this.
