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.

Jihadwatch.org 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.

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

  2. No. Surprise.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

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

    Our Military unfortunately loses a lot of their “rights” when they join the service, AND CERTAINLY WHEN YOU ARE JAILED…HASAN SHOULD NOT OF BEEN TREATED ANY DIFFERENTLY…HE SHOULD OF BEEN SHAVING HIS BEARD LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE! HE STILL RECEIVES A CHECK BECAUSE HE IS STILL CONSIDERED IN THE MILITARY…CERTAINLY NOT FOR BEING A MUSLIM… OTHERWISE HE OWES ALL THOSE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BACK TO THE GOVERNMENT!

    HE WANTED TO KILL AMERICANS IN COLD BLOOD AND DIE HIMSELF SUPPOSEDLY FOR HIS FAITH…WELL THEN…OWN UP TO IT!

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Wake up people, they are pushing Islam on you.

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

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

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

  15. 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!

  16. 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!
    C-CS

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
