Creeping Sharia Alert: Judge of Fort Hood Trial Removed For Bias of Requiring Shaving Hasan’s Beard

Guest Post by Mara Zebest

Dhimmitude at its best… military appeals court removes judge from Ft. Hood terror trial for ordering Nidal Hasan to shave his beard… wonder if Obama was also pressuring the military on that move?

The beard trumps the Constitution. reports the following:

Why don’t these dhimmis just be done with it and make Hasan the commander of CENTCOM? “Judge removed in Fort Hood shooting rampage case,” from the Associated Press, December 3 (thanks to all who sent this in):

FORT HOOD, Texas – The military’s highest court ousted the judge in the Fort Hood shooting case Monday and threw out his order to have the suspect’s beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that Col. Gregory Gross didn’t appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.

But the court said it was not ruling on whether the judge’s order violated Hasan’s religious rights. Hasan has argued that his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, although facial hair violates Army regulations.

He committed mass murder because of his Muslim faith. His Muslim faith should not be rewarded.

“Should the next military judge find it necessary to address (Hasan’s) beard, such issues should be addressed and litigated anew,” judges wrote in the ruling.

Hasan appealed after Gross ordered that he must be clean-shaven or be forcibly shaved before his court-martial, a military trial. …

An Army appeals court had upheld the shaving requirement in October.

But on Monday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces said the command, not the judge, was responsible for enforcing grooming standards. The ruling said that was one example of how Gross appeared impartial in the case.

Gross had repeatedly said Hasan’s beard was a disruption to the court proceedings, but the military appeals court ruled that there was insufficient evidence to show that his beard interfered with the hearings.

It’s against military regulations. That should have been the end of the story.

    Obama flaunting his re-election win….Remember….Timothy McVeigh was dead within 3 years. Shame on my country this man still breaths.

  • Economan

    No. Surprise.

  • srdem65

    For pete’s sake, he’s a prisoner of the military; hold him down and shave his beard.

    He can grow it back while he’s waiting for the death squad to take him to the nearest river of honey and a bunch of virgin women he can rape.

  • i use to think that they military would never turn on the american people. seeing the actions of people currently leading our military(i.e. casey, dempsey)i’m not so sure any longer.

  • Lady Mondegreen

    On the contrary, Mr Hoft, this is the Constitution at work. He may well be guilty, he may deserve the death penalty, he may have been motivated by his faith, but the Constitution protects him, no matter what. Even the guilty have rights. That’s the beauty of the Constitution.

  • Sasja

    His beard is against military regulations, Lady Moonbat.

    It’s obvious the “command” is reluctant to have the beard shaved. So the problem is with the commanding officer, no?

  • Bob

    Lady Mondegreen: Hasan is protected by the Constitution and Uniform Code of Military Justice. That protection allows him a fair and impartial trial under the UCMJ. He is (unfortunately, still) a commissioned officer in the Army. As such he has sworn an oath to support and defend the constitution and obey the legal orders of the officers appointed above him. As an officer he is obligated by regulation and his oath to maintain physical appearance standards (no beard), the same standards he willingly obeyed before he slaughtered his fellow soldiers. There are no religious convictions at sway here. I am ashamed that the US Army Command structure is kowtowing to this slime.

    This sudden religious conviction about beards is nothing more than a delaying tactic. Get on with the trial.

    To think this bastard still gets paid over $6,000 every month since he shot our Troops in cold blood Nov. 2009…

    Political correctness and a military court martial do not mix well. The way this one is going you can be sure that justice will not be served. Politics corrupts and politics has crept into the higher echelons of our military and the rot of corruption has set in. If Obama has his way, this SOB will walk and more then likely end up with disability pay. By the way under the UCMJ you are guilty until you prove your innocence.

  • saveus

    What’s the rush for a trial?

    Keeping this SOB on the taxpayer payroll while obama dishonors his victims

    Sharia in action at Ft. Hood and in the WH

    Wake up people, they are pushing Islam on you.

    Just walk up to the idiot with a propane torch and burn it off. Should take about 20 seconds. The extra terror is justified

  • shadow

    Next thing you know, all the women at the trial will be forced to wear burquas.

  • Sasja

    OT and not politically related in anyway. But it is darling.

  • Economan

    Oh for the love of Pete! We know the animal did it! Someone should raid the prison and string him up and stop with all this ridiculous drama!

  • C-Christian Soldier

    The acquiescence to islam is occurring at the Military Academies (USMA AFA USNA )as well—
    Beware -my fellow US citizens- our military is being blind sided!

  • bear

    To you gutless hypocrites in the “command,” grow a pair.

    When I saw that the traitor manning may be released due to a technicality, that sick feeling came on. With this beard business, it’s abundantly clear that the rules and regs are now selectively enforced.

    The integrity of our military is very important to the retention of our union. Shame on the “command.” Apparently the motto, “Duty, honor, country” is no more.

  • onbe

    Who cares if he has a beard? Long ago he demonstrated that he was not loyal to the country or the military. Not following dress standards would be expected.His aim I gather is to draw attention to his brotherhood of jihadists .Simply deny him this by blocking photos or mentioning his beard.Convict him and hang him.I am pretty sure the beard will not interfere with his swinging from a rope.

  • mg

    When some dune coon yells allahakbar on my property, it will be his last yell to allah.

  • -Ed.

    If the local commander is failing to enforce the UCMJ, which states no beards allowed, then the local commander is open to punishment from his superiors. Apparently, the local commander’s superiors are OK with that failure. Odd.

  • Smarty

    His showing up for trial in a beard is simply admission that he is/was a stealth jihadi and that it takes precedence over his military service. Let him wear it and consider it as further evidence of guilt.

    Execution for Murder and Treason. This year, please.

  • Hjambotron

    With the Military Court of Appeals striking down military grooming standards, how long will it be before Articles 15 punishment, as well as Courts-martial offenses for failure to follow military standards are all revisited and thrown out?

  • Hjambotron

    …and, yes–since the precedent is now established for our Islamic military folks, will it really be that long before some lawyer comes up with the argument that since standards are waived in this instance that standards must be waived for all?

    Sounds ridiculous? Up until this recent, feckless decision, I would’ve agreed…

    Quote from the article:
    “Gross had repeatedly said Hasan’s beard was a disruption to the court proceedings, but the military appeals court ruled that there was insufficient evidence to show that his beard interfered with the hearings.”

    Well, the facts obviously prove otherwise. Hasan’s trial continues to stall over his beard, while another US military member accused of murder was convicted in a about a year (even though the crime was committed in a foreign country many thousands of miles away).

    Hasan is using his beard to stall his trial. He is also using his beard as means of mocking our military justice system.

    The military should let him have his beard and his trial. No more stalling, no more “beard” hearings, no more avoiding justice in the name of Islam.

  • AR670-1 still applies to prisoners.
    unless you are muslim or a fag.
    then you get a f**king pass on every rule the rest of us vets had to follow.

  • Pink Tie Republican

    No doubt in my mind the President is in on this.

  • Sparty

    Look, was no one else frustrated that this murderous douche was able to delay his trial by growing a beard?

    Having a beard is being out of uniform. UCMJ.
    Disobeying a Direct Order. UCMJ

    But try his punk ass for murder and treason ASAP.

    The judge was a douche for delaying justice for so long over a simple issue. The only thing scary is the word “Bias”. That is not why he should be removed, but he should certainly be removed for reasons stated above.

  • Gater

    What about all those years that Hasan served clean shaven, in spite of his faith?

    I don’t care if he wants a beard during trial, or wants to sit naked during jury selection. Just get on with the trial! That’s what’s important here. Those killed and their families deserve justice and Hasan deserves a fair trial.

    Then he deserves a fair hanging.

    The Commander-in-Chief is Muslim. He was born and raised Muslim. He stated that in a crisis, he would side with Muslims. He went to a Muslim outreach church for 20 years. He refuses to call Hassan’s crimes an act of terrorism, instead calling it work-place violence. The CoC is not going to reprimand the commander for following military discipline that counters Muslim policy. What do you expect from Maj. Hassan?-

  • sablegsd

    And ovomit is not a koranimal, right? Because the traitors in the criminal body called the media say so.
