Founder of Revolution Muslim website gets 12 years for online ‘South Park’ threat

via Man gets 12 years for online ‘South Park’ threat | The Salt Lake Tribune.

A Muslim convert from Brooklyn was sentenced Friday to nearly 12 years in prison for posting online threats against the creators of the “South Park” television show and others he deemed enemies of Islam.

The sentence — largely in line with the term sought by prosecutors — came after Jesse Curtis Morton, 33, offered an apology for his conduct, saying he “contributed to a clash of civilizations” by espousing a violent ideology.

“I justified atrocities by Muslims simply because they were carried out by the weak against the powerful,” Morton said.

Morton founded the now-defunct Revolution Muslim website. He said he wanted the site to offer a forum for nuanced dialogue on relations between the Muslim world and the West and that he thought his website was protected by the First Amendment. However, he admitted that the website devolved into coarse calls for violent jihad, and that he crossed the line by posting the al-Qaida magazine Inspire on the site. The magazine explicitly called for the murder of a cartoonist from Seattle who promoted “Everybody Draw Muhammad day” and featured an article titled “How to Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.”

He and another defendant, Zachary Chesser, used the website to deliver thinly veiled threats against the creators of the “South Park” television show for perceived insults to the prophet Muhammad, by depicting him in a bear costume. Chesser earlier received a 25-year sentence, but he also tried to travel to Somalia to join the al-Shabab terrorist group.

Prosecutor Gordon Kromberg said Morton’s apology may well be sincere, but argued that a stiff sentence was necessary because of the nature of the crime. He said Morton’s site inspired a variety of would-be jihadis, including “Jihad Jane” Colleen LaRose; Antonio Benjamin Martinez, who plotted to bomb a military recruiting station; and Jose Pimental, who plotted to assassinate members of the U.S. military returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. He also corresponded with American al-Qaida member Samir Khan on writing an article for use as al-Qaida propaganda.

Kromberg said the posting of Al-Qaida’s instructional article on how to build a kitchen bomb will inevitably lead to someone’s death in the future. And he said Morton abused his free speech protections to call for the murder of those whose speech he found offensive.

“Make a TV show we don’t like — we’ll slit your throat. Draw a cartoon we don’t like — we’ll slit your throat,” Kromberg said, summarizing Morton’s philosophy.

U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady said Morton was a bright man who could have used his intellect and energy for good but instead took a “horrible turn.”

“You were rubbing elbows with some of the most dangerous revolutionaries of the past few years,” O’Grady said, who told Morton “there has to be religious tolerance in the world. There has to be freedom of speech.”

Defense attorney James Hundley had sought a prison term of less than five years. He argued that Morton by and large tried to keep his website on the right side of the line between free speech and advocating violence, but admitted that at times Morton crossed it.

“His goal was to engage in dialogue,” Hundley said.

Morton’s prosecution was relatively novel under a law enacted in recent years that makes it a federal crime to use the Internet to place another person in fear of death or serious injury.

Dozens of individuals associated with Morton and the now defunct Revolution Muslim website have been convicted of terrorist activities. Those that come immediately to mind and who were most linked to Revolution Muslim are Zachary “Abu Talhah” Chesser, who was introduced to Younes by the now dead al Qaeda operative Samir Khan.

The list also includes Carlos “Death to all Juice” Almonte, Antonio “Muhammad Hussein” Martinez, Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, Mustafa Naushad, & Tarek Mehanna. There is even evidence that the Ft. Hood mass murderer Nidal Hasan was a regular visitor to the Revolution Muslim site.

Only one key player on the website, the now allegedly “reformed” founder Joseph “Yousef al-Khattab” Cohen, remains at large.

  1. Why are we feeding this trash who wish to destroy our civilization! HANG THE CRUD and be done with them. Do unto them what they wish to do unto us!!! LOCK AND LOAD.

  2. The fuckers burn Flags and poppies while shouting through a loud speaker in the 2 minutes silence in London remembrance day for all soldiers. And nothing was done by the goverment. But then somepne drew a picture of Mohamed and they started with their shit all around the world. What did the goverment do about this??? They apologised on behalf of the country!!!! Thats Europe for you! I do believe in that shit they do and if I want to draw a fucking picture of Mohamed I will. But, no I cannot. SO that is my rights as a citizen taken away from me because it offends them! We cannot have a cross in our schools because it offends them!! Where does this stop. Type in google the third Jihad watch that and see how much danger the USA and Briton is in.. Blow them all up. They are a waste of resources on this planet that could be used for decent people

    • I’m also a Brit and agree completely.

      Step one.

      Identify a target and a single issue based on known fact and creditable sources.

      One such could be the Muslim rape epidemic now being unearthed.

      Investigate the police, cps and social worker inaction during the Muslim grooming/rape scandal and expose these monsters for what they are.

      Plaster it across the internet (because el-Beeb, ITV, Channel Fours and Five will do nothing).

      Keep up the pressure and organise just as rioting Muslims do.

      Try a touch of violence free civil disobedience. Refusal to pay BBC license fees, Council Tax etc until the law is applied fairly.

      Organise marches through Muslim communities demonstrating against the abuse of white girls.

      Do not let up and when the inevitable arrests occur set up a legal fighting fund and again demonstrate outside courts and police stations.

      Oh, and did I say keep it up. No surrender and no weakness.

      This is a matter of national survival.

  3. I think you Brits have a bigger problem with Muzzies than we do here in the U.S. Your jail time is like 18 months, not 12 and 25 years. Your government took all your guns, so how will you fight them? We have 80 million guns in the hands of the citizenry. When push comes to shove the Christain people of the U.S. will stand up for our precious country. Muzzies don’t stand a chance here. Then you have some stupid “Human Rights Law”, which allows terrorists to stay on British soil in order to “enjoy family life”. What kind of crap is that? This clown convert will sit in a cell for the next twelve years whacking his moo-ham-mud while images of 72 virgins swims through his head. The Ayran Brotherhood will deal with him later!

    • Don’t be nieve slobo. We are in more danger than you think. Muslims are moving here in droves and building mosques and taking over communitys and big cities…Quietly. They are building their Sharia banks on college campuses and on CHRISTIAN college campuses in Tennessee. The muslims put on the front that they are a peaceful people and they will be peaceful till their population in this country reaches 3% and that is when they will rise up and call for Jihad. At that point these “peaceful muslims” will not be so peaceful anymore.All they do is procreate so their numbers will grow fast. It is more widespread than you think and our liberal media will not cover it because they do not want to appear “politically incorrect” and the rest
      are still of the opinion there is such a thing as”peaceful muslims.” There are alot of gun owners out there, I agree with you and believe me I am one of them. However, the laws of this land and the fact that we are a civilized nation,will tie our hands.Our government has already tied our hands with our own laws in many ways. look at the folks who have protested to the building of mosques in their communities. Most of them have gotten NO WHERE. We can do nothing about these people until they break the law and do something
      to us and hopefully we live through it to defend ourselves.

    • I forgot to add, Alot of them are over here on expired Visa’s. They come to our country and we Americans educate then on OUR DIME, teach them nuclear physics and when they finish they drop off the radar and never go back to their homelands.ALL STATE UNIVERSITIES DO THIS! Don’t forget that our muslim president just made it ok for them to stay if their children where born here and are over 16! Alot of them come up through the border of Mexico and we all know how secure that is! I personally think we should stand at their mosques doors and ask for ty

    • Sorry, I got cut off. What I was saying was that I personally think immigration should ask to see their visa’s or citizenship papers when they enter their mosques door! However, we no longer can do that because they would yell RACIAL PROFILING AND OUR LAWS WOULD PROTECT THEM!!!

    • 80 million guns? wow, i love your second amendment. wish we had same rights in my country. we fight them with petrol and cooking gas clyinders . like some fast food brand, we have kentucky fried muslims

  4. Make a TV show we don’t like — we’ll slit your throat. Draw a cartoon we don’t like — we’ll slit your throat,” Kromberg said, summarizing Morton’s philosophy.

    That not JUST this guys it is muzzie way of life he will get out in a year for good behaveor i bet.

  5. Soon, Holder one of the main muslims may be coming down forcing an O pardon. Of course, O may be defeated and go down as the worst Muslim I mean American president. His goal has only been to make you a minority group in America. See what Obama has wrought!

    The koran Jefferson had was during the time we were paying 20 million to muslims to not be attacked. Of course Rep Muslim Ellison swore into office on it. What a slap in the face of America.

    What Islam is not:

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
