Terrorist Defense Attorney Cheryl Bormann Demands All Women Wear Hijabs to Court (Video)

Yup. She’s nuts.
Talk about a far left appeaser…

(Daily Mail)

Cheryl Bormann, counsel for 9-11 defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it. Bormann requested that the court order other women to follow her example so that the defendants do not have to avert their eyes “for fear of committing a sin under their faith.”

Video from The Five:

She acts like she’s trying out for a position at the Holder Justice Department, huh?

    Personally, I’d fry up some bacon and pass it around the courtroom.

  • Bitter Clinger

    Someone ought to ask this twit if the Nazi’s delicate sensibilities were offended by the presence of Jews in the courtroom during the Nuremberg Trials. If so, were the Jews barred from entering the court room? What a total baffoon! Could be in Holder’s Department of Just Us.

    Why do we tolerate and allow these morons to do this? Can you just imagine how much worse this would be if they had succeeded in trying these animals in New York? This is so wrong on so many levels, and the judge should of shut her up.

    The rest of the women there need to inform this freak of an attorney to “fluck off”!

  • Patty

    Bormann is boring me. She DEMANDS? 🙂 who is she working for really? Who die and made her queen.

    I want the book thrown at her and the these evil killers who wish us all dead.

  • Patty

    Who is she another Fluke.

  • ebayer

    She represents Walid bin Attash, a Yemeni who ran Al-Qaeda terrorist training camps and researched flight simulators and timetables to help perpetrate the attacks.
    Cheryl Bormann, 52, said that her client had demanded she wear the clothing and insisted that other women at the hearing also wear ‘appropriate’ clothes out of respect for his religion.

  • Patty

    She acts like she’s trying out for a position at the Holder Justice Department, huh?
    Obviously, yes. Just like Fluke and Wassy wasserman, looking to be speaker of the house some day.

  • jbinnout

    Or…..we could just blindfold the defendants. Nah, too cruel.

  • Buffalobob

    Will Cheryl Bormann be signing up to have her hoo hoo trimmed by her lovely Islamic terrorist new friends? It’s the Sharia way.

  • Patty

    Who is this Bore?


    This is a woman who cheered Gov. Pat Quinn for signing into law in March of 2011 the ban on the death penalty in Illinois, eradicating the necessity of a defense lawyer like herself who specialized in capital cases. Bormann also works as an educator for the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago founded by Carolyn Pereira, who formerly worked with Deliberating in a Democracy, an international program to teach students how to deliberate controversial public issues. This organization, Deliberating in a Democracy, is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students. Awards #Q304A040003 and #Q304A070005. Splendid, eh? And this organization is linked to the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago, the Constitutional Rights Foundation and something called Street Law. What is Street Law? Their website states, “Street Law, Inc. creates classroom and community programs that teach people about law, democracy, and human rights worldwide. Our engaging, practical lessons help people develop skills to improve their lives and strengthen their communities.” Sounds like community organizing to me.

    This could just be six degrees of seperation and Cheryl Bormann is just some idiot politcally correct lawyer, but what I do know for sure is that she represents where this country is headed as Sharia Law makes its way into Florida courts and Dearborn, Michigan becomes a wasteland of Islam. I plan to dig deeper to find out why this woman was “chosen” after the Obama administration failed to take these trials to a civilian court.

  • Patty

    Here ya go! Chicago Style thuggery.

  • How did this woman get this job? Who hired her? The Arabs, Holder, some outside group like the Muslim Brotherhood? Maybe they thought that hiring a woman would be more compassionate towards the court and the jury. And her suggestion of all women wearing that damn scarf, don’t they know that Arab men have no respect for a woman regardless of what their education is or position? Also, especially THESE men who are almost like religious leaders down there in Gitmo. So they hate this woman even more. And just like Obama burying Osama at sea within 24 hours, he is “honoring Islam” where there shouldn’t be any honor whatsoever. These scumbags are terrorists! They helped murder 3,000 people in America! They may have been obeying their religious beliefs, but down in Gitmo, it’s not back in Iran or some other Godforsaken hell hole of a country where they come from, it’s Gitmo, an island prison for Muslim terrorists. There should not be any recognition of their religious feelings from this dirtbag woman lawyer who doesn’t want to “offend” a damn Muslim and be a temptation in case one of them looks at her and “sins” by seeing her without her head being covered.

    Hey, I say, these scumbags are human just like we are, and if they look, it’s because they want to. So don’t look! That way they won’t sin. Besides what are they going to do if they have to take the witness stand and she’s standing in front of them, look down the whole time so they don’t see a……woman?? And if they do, it’s been so long since they’ve had any that just a glance will send their imaginations running wild with sexual ideas they just can’t seem to control? So that is why all their women are covered from head to toe in their country so the men won’t be thinking thoughts of sex???? What’s the matter, these scumbag terrorists don’t want to have to admit that they are human, and it’s a God given emotion to think of women sexually? Well, welcome to the real world!!!

  • Tim in Cali

    LMAO..I bet they’re really offended by the woman wereing the sexy body shaper, in the add above the comments

    So, we see where her roots lie. Deep in the heart of Socialism and Community Organizing. Who knew!!

  • Patty

    So who exactly is Cheryl Bormann? Would you be surprised to find out that she comes from Cook County Illinois? Yes Cook County, the cess pool from which Obama, Soros and the Marxists draw their minions. Here is her Linked In profile. Her current field is described as such, “Criminal defense of complex capital cases involving the application of international, war crimes, and constitutional law.” Cheryl Bormann has both experience in international law and constitutional law? Obviously, her views on constitutional law I assume run along the same lines as Obama. Anyone who is an expert in constitutional law would know that international law means squat to America despite the Globalists best attempts to bring it into our courts. We were attacked on our land by people who were criminal invaders in this land having overstayed Visas and such. I worry that Cheryl Bormann may want to bring international law into the court, which would keep us from the justice we would have putting these vermin to death cause the majority of the world does not practice capital punishment.

    That crazy woman should not be allowed to disrespect our courts. Kick her azz out or tell her to dress appropiately.

    Rush was right. This morning he lashed out at the stupid circus shenanigans these mass murderers were acting out in court. He said that if they had been really tortured or at least treated at Camp Gitmo for the animals that they are, they would have behaved perfectly out of fear.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Redwine: indeed.



    Putin is now the President of the new USSR. Again.

    Things can get worse, I assure you.

  • Sasja

    There is a reason why that fiasco Saturday in which a 2-hour hearing turned into 13, with the accused making a mockery of the tribunal and the proceedings. They have been catered to at GITMO…they even have 3 socker fields for crying out loud. Anyone remember this?


  • obfuscatenot

    Did you listen to this woman’s voice? I have a different theory on WHY the terrorists wanted her to wear this body covering garb. When in their presence she wears the tarp over her mouth to disguise her tobacco breath. I bet it curled their beards.

    Where are the NAGS?

  • owl

    You can’t convince me that the courts allow this type of behavior for other cases. Why are these people being treated special?

    God bless the friends and relatives of the victims because if it makes me mad, it’s not hard to imagine their state.

  • valerie

    Nope. The American equivalent of a hijab is a woman’s business suit, which is ordinary courtroom attire. It works better than a hijab, because in addition to establishing that a woman is off limits, it also establishes that she’s here for a serious purpose, something a hijab is incapable of conveying to a savage.

  • Sasja

    I read some of the families watched this obscenity on closed circuit tv. Can only imagine what was going through their minds. It’s a shame we cannot use those murderers for target practice. I’d even let them start running first, just to be fair.

  • Buffalobob

    If obama and Mooshell had their law licenses they would look just like her.

  • Shawn

    Another lefty that hates America.

  • bigkahuna

    I would tell her to FO, then I would ask the other women if they would like to wear biklinis into court since its so warm there.
    I would ask that muslim garb all be banned since its just a place for them to hide weapons.
    I would also cook bacon in the courtroom, along with porkchops and paint the walls with pigs blood.

    I would fill the bathrooms with quorans in all toilet stalls for toilet paper and I would be sure they didnt have a clue which way they were facing in the room or after. No prayer rugs, no special treatment etc.

    If they dont like it they can choose the gas chamber or swim for it in shark infested waters.

    If only this woman could have been in the towers on 9/11 or on one of those planes that the relatives of her clients took over or even live in the so-called middle class section of the area where these sub humans come from. If only!

    I think I heard the folks on Fox with Friends (and a guest?( talk this morning about how a US civil court would NEVER allow these antics in the courtroom.

    It makes me wonder about what kind of “fix” is in with the Military Tribunals and – frankly – it makes me worry a lot about the state of mind of our current US Military in general.


    They actually allowed one of these criminals to fly a paper airplane in the courtroom? Whatever happened to CONTEMPT OF COURT? I’m not a lawyer but…..come on. Is everything I have ever watched on TV courtroom dramas a lie?

    Incredible essay:

    in part:

    Both the Stupid Left and the Satanic Left demonstrate together against the United States, in favor of Iran and Islamofascism, in favor of destroying Israel, and in favor of Palestinian terrorism. But for different reasons.

    The Stupid Left really thinks that if the U.S. leaves Iran alone, it will refrain from developing weapons of mass destruction. The Satanic Left supports Iran precisely because it knows that Iran will develop them and use them!

    The Stupid Left is anti-American because it thinks people in America are oppressed, poor, and mistreated, and that America is an evil country. The Satanic Left is anti-American precisely because it knows that the opposite is the case.

    The Stupid Left hates America because it thinks America promotes evil, oppressive regimes around the world. The Satanic Left hates America because America gets in the way of the evil, oppressive regimes that the Satanic Left promotes.

    The Stupid Left denounces capitalism and globalization and supports communism because it really believes that people are poor and oppressed under capitalism but free and happy under socialism. The Satanic Left denounces capitalism and supports communism precisely because it knows that the opposite is the case.

    The Stupid Left does not know that communism produces gulags. The Satanic Left supports communism precisely because it produces gulags, and also because members of the Satanic Leftists presume that they will be placed in charge of the gulags.

    The Stupid Left wants a Palestinian state because it thinks that such a state will pursue peace alongside Israel. The Satanic Left wants a Palestinian state precisely because it knows that such a state will launch a war of destruction against Israel and endless atrocities against the Jews.

    The Stupid Left thinks that Israel mistreats Arabs. It does not know that Arab regimes mistreat Arabs. The Satanic Left knows that Israel does not and the Arab regimes do. The reason it wants Israel destroyed is not because it thinks Israel is unjust, but rather because it hates Jews.

    The Stupid Left opposes Israeli armed force being used to suppress terror because it thinks that terror can be resolved through dialogue and negotiations. The Satanic Left opposes Israeli armed forces being used to suppress terror because it supports terror against Jews.

    The Stupid Left is convinced that most Arabs seek peace, are moderate and decent people, and have legitimate grievances against the West. The Satanic Left supports Arab aggression and terror precisely because it knows that this is not true.

    First of all Bormann should have to prove her sanity, so that the defendants cannot claim to have had a deficient defense.

    Does Bormann want to appeal for a shariah trial? Let’s have it out now!

    I am just guessing here, but I suspect that when these monsters die, either by execution or otherwise, they will begins a extremely long education about sin, and women will be among the least of their concerns.

    These muslims have no right to demand anything as they are not American citizens and have no rights except those rights invented by the musim appeasing politically correct politicians. As for showing respect to their religion, islam is not a religion. It is a worldwide political movement meant on domination of the world. And it is meant to subjugate all people under Islamic law. In the Quran, it says it very clearly. There are two spheres. One is the Dar al-Harb, which is the realm of war. The other is Dar al-Islam, which is that part that’s under submission to Islam. There is no middle ground. You’re either at war or you’re under submission.

  • [email protected]

    All this hoopla and indignation over this whore’s “demand.” It’s typical leftist defense lawyer tactics. The question is, WHAT WAS THE UPSHOT?

    It’s twisted enough logic to demand all women in the presence of a Muslim dress in hijabs, regardless of their own beliefs. It is the HEIGHT OF INSANITY to demand that they do so when said Muslims are on trial for MASS MURDER. Why the HELL should we accommodate them? They’re PRISONERS!

  • Mama Grizzly

    #14 Will of LA: this is part of the subjugation and abuse of women: they BLAME them. They blame them for their nature, for their attractiveness, etc., and they DESTROY them through FGM.

    #3 is 100% correct. The Moslem organizations are laughing. This is about subjugation and take over. It is a covert military action. The “covert” is that they are “hiding” (although now in plain sight) behind their religion. Because Americans protect freedom of religion, they are USING that value to gain military advantage. First they will work on the psychology of their American targets, they will slowly and subtly get them to submit, THEN they will tighten the noose.

    This idiot attorney is being paid to represent them and is a useful tool. When they’re done with her, they would have no qualms about offing her and dumping her body in a field or river.
