Yet the MSM just can’t stop trying to blame conservatives instead of the muslim-orchestrated violence.
When South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker decided to have some fun by animating the 7th century Islamic zealot Mohammad in a bear suit, the muslim crazies had a shit-fit, prompting the otherwise edgy, snarky, profane, hipsters at Comedy Central to run like scared little infidels.
Well, Stone and Parker can sleep easier now, the perp is in the hoosegow. As an added bonus, he’s a former Obama campaign volunteer.
The radicalized knucklehead convicted of threatening the lives of the “South Park” creators signed up as a volunteer for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, but by the time Election Day arrived he had concluded it would be a violation of Islamic law to vote in the U.S. election, according to court records.
Wannabe jihadi Zachary Chesser, 21, was sentenced earlier this year to 25 years in federal prison following his guilty plea to making the “South Park” threats as well as providing material support to terrorists (in this case the Somali guerilla group Al-Shabaab).
Chesser…has cooperated with FBI agents and helped prosecutors building a case against Jessie Curtis Morton, with whom Chesser operated the extremist Revolution Muslim web site. Morton was named last week in a felony criminal complaint charging him with threatening the lives of Matt Stone and Trey Parker over a “South Park” episode that included the Prophet Muhammad dressed in a bear suit.
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.”
Chesser apologized in a “Statement of Responsibility” for the “harm and pain I have caused,” noting that he was “ashamed and bewildered that I was capable of doing it.” Chesser added that, “I have always been a pacificist” and “The jihadi ideology I was drawn into was contrary to everything I had grown up thinking and believing.”
Before this revelation, Chesser–now imprisoned at the federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois–viewed the “South Park” controversy as an opportunity to further disseminate radical messages. In fact, in a wiretapped April 2010 conversation with Morton, Chesser reported that the term “Revolution Muslim” was then the “68th most searched term on Google,” according to the Morton criminal complaint.

The “bewildered” jihadist didn’t seem too confused when he made the threats. He was pretty specific and concise. Islamic jihad is supposedly “contrary to everything (he) had grown up thinking and believing”, yet it appealed to his rage over a satire of the muslim icon who was, aside from being a religious zealot, a pedophile and a misogynist.
Chesser will be in prison for a while. Wouldn’t it be deliciously ironic if the “revolutionary muslim” converted to Christianity?
