Supporters Chant "Free Jahar" as Boston Marathon Bomber Is Led Into Court

This is why I think the left is actually insane.

It's not that the left broadly supports Jahar or anything. They don't.

But the left, broadly, does have a pathological urge towards evil, or what they'd call Enlightened Contrarianism, or a thoughtful repudiation of conventional morality.

The trouble with such kneejerk contrarianism is that when the dominant position is also right and moral (which it tends to be in most cases, but not all), those who have a psychological need to oppose, oppose the masses, oppose whatever, oppose simply to cry out I exist, are forced into reflexively taking the position opposite of right and good, which is, of course, wrong and evil.

Marxism is premised upon this. Marx declared the only correct response to the dominant culture was spiteful contempt, indignant anger, and constant subversion.

Were the dominant culture mostly evil that might be a decent response. But as it's not mostly evil, Marx's prescription is itself an urging towards evil.

And so here is Jahar Tsarnaev. He coldly butchered and maimed a hundred people with a bomb, for no other reason than the psychological desire to assert his own identity and culture through murder. (Marxist in temperament, if not in ideology.)

And so he will of course have his bevy of psychopathic bent supporters, who, as usual, compelled by their neuroses and psychoses to always take a position opposite the masses, are driven to praise evil, chaos, and murder.

A group of about a dozen supporters cheered as the motorcade carrying Tsarnaev arrived at the courthouse. The demonstrators yelled “Justice for Jahar,” as Tsarnaev is known. One woman held a sign that said, “Free Jahar.”


“I’m here to show Dzhokhar support, to let him know there are thousands of people worldwide that do believe his innocence,” Mary Churback of Freetown told WBZ-TV news.

Lacey Buckley, 23, said she traveled from her home in Wenatchee, Wash., to attend the arraignment. Buckley said she has never met Tsarnaev but came because she believes he’s innocent. “I just think so many of his rights were violated. They almost murdered an unarmed kid in a boat,” she said.

I used to be shocked by this, post-9/11, when the typical crew of bent psychotics would justify terrorism, and even wax philosophical about the creative and liberating power of murder.

I'm not shocked anymore. Every age has its Alistair Crowleys, and every age has sad, bent, pathetic followers of Crowley-types. They're not really discussing politics or ethics or morality; they're simply acting out compulsions and psychological dramas they suffered when they resisted potty-training or felt ashamed about bed-wetting. They are simply evil toddlers perpetually acting up in order to get attention from Mom and Dad or to tweak Brother or Sister.

I'm an Adult Now, Dad!

And I have Ideas too! Really good ideas!
