America’s Sociopath Fetish

I would like to declare a war on women — namely, all those cringe-inducing ninnies who lust after every celebrity criminal defendant with big muscles, tattoos, puppy-dog eyes or Hollywood hair.

You know who I’m talking about, right? America’s Bad Boy groupies. They’re on the courthouse steps with their "Free Jahar" signs, cooing over how "hot" and "cute" the bloodstained Boston Marathon bombing suspect is. He "can blow me up with babies," one moral reprobate quipped shortly after his capture. "I’m not gonna lie, the second bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is hot. #sorrynotsorry," another young girl boasted.

Among the callous accused killer’s victims, in case you’d forgotten: 8-year-old boy Martin Richard, who had been cheering on his dad and other family friends at the race. But who cares about an innocent dead child blown to bits by pressure cooker bombs in the name of Allah?

Far from a minuscule fringe, the Ja-harem is a growing social media phenomenon. Its members mimic Justin Bieber’s Beliebers, adopting the last name of their Tiger Beat terrorist and doodling hearts around his mug shot. In heat or in jest, these depraved females continue to spread viral photos, memes and hashtags of their Islamist Idol. One woman showed up at Tsarnaev’s court appearance Wednesday donning a "Free the Lion" T-shirt. Another sported a "Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is innocent" tee, while her gal pal shouted, "Exonerate!"

For those ladies who prefer jocks to jihadis, there’s accused murderer/NFL star Aaron Hernandez. He’s "fine as wine," one woman lusted. He’s "too damned sexy to go to prison," another lamented. "He can come to jail at my house," sighed yet another. In response to one of gangsta Hernandez’s Glock-wielding Instagram pics, one sick chick slavered, "Soooo hot with the combination handgun-mirror selfie."

Fugitive cop-killer Christopher Dorner also had his own fan club. Parked in front of their TV sets, women cheered on the "kinda sexy" homicidal maniac as he terrorized Southern California before perishing in a cabin inferno. "I’d honestly hide Dorner in my house," one fan girl enthused. Tens of thousands "liked" Dorner’s various support pages on Facebook.

Harmless Internet chitter-chatter? Don’t kid yourselves. While some of the murderers’ panting minions may be joking, it’s irresponsible women like these who end up enabling, marrying and conspiring with public menaces.

They’re your neighbors and relatives, suburban gals like Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose and Jamie "Jihad Jamie" Paulin-Ramirez of Colorado, who agreed to wed Muslim terrorists and conspired to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks. Paulin-Ramirez dragged her 6-year-old (whom she renamed "Walid") to Ireland to assist with the plot. Family members said she was "easily influenced" and that "any man that came along … she kind of followed like a lost puppy."

It would be one thing if these morally stunted followers segregated themselves in enclaves outside the American mainstream. But some of these damaged goods end up on juries, entrusted to weigh evidence fairly, digest complex instructions, and render impartial verdicts in matters of life and death. Indeed, they are aggressively sought after by predatory defense lawyers. I’ll never forget the female jurors of the first murder trial of confessed parent-killers Lyle and Erik Menendez. Star-struck by "glamorous" defense lawyer Jill Abramson, the women of the Menendez jury told Los Angeles reporters that "they admired her wardrobe and biting wit."

Their swooning for the hunky Menendez brothers, whom they praised as "bright" and "nice," was obscene. After a mistrial was declared, Abramson arranged for "her jurors" to meet the boys. Soon after, talk show queen Sally Jesse Raphael hosted a program on "women who would leave their husbands to marry a Menendez."

From Menendez mania to Free Jahar, the pathologies persist: Easily led. Emotion-driven. Desperate for male approbation. Prone to acting with their lady parts instead of their lady smarts. Heckuva job, feminism! All the equalization and parity in education and the workplace are for naught if women can’t distinguish right from wrong and "hot" from evil.

Lesson learned: You can indoctrinate generations of American women in the ways of gender empowerment, but you can’t make a goodly portion of them think straight. Hormones trump basic human decency and good judgment in the crowded coven of sociopaths.

    The level headed women of America like Michelle Malkin have a job to do: Destroy the power of so-called “women’s liberation”. The poisonous effect of this movement has twisted the thinking of so many women that they can’t even see the consequences that actually diminish the ability of women to strengthen our society. Instead of inspiring men to become morally strong accountable leaders, they provide men with excuses to become increasingly irresponsible.

    We need a “Women of Strength” movement to undercut the influence of “women’s liberation”!

    And everyone ignore Wil, he is a paid troll who is constantly throwing out stupid uninformed comments on various articles appearing on Bernie Goldberg’s site. Like a little yapping dog, just shut the door and ignore him and eventually he will go away.

    I find it ironic, growing up we were constantly barraged with how shallow we were as men to date women based on how physically attractive they are, yet I see far more women absolutely lose their minds over a pretty boy or a bad boy. They seem far more shallow to me. I am happily engaged to a wonderful woman and while I may find her beautiful, it is based on how wonderful she is, not her appearance.

    Women who lust after evil are controlled by evil themselves. It doesn’t surprise me. At least this way they can be recognized for who they are.

  • Wil

    Malkin reported on her website that her husband had left a “lucrative health-care consulting job” to be a stay-at-home dad. In other words, he is a bum!

    • Darren Perkins

      Such a comment could only come from gross stupidity.

      • Wil

        Shouldn’t you be commenting on Malkins vicious column and not my retort? Do you you agree with her ravings.

        • Darren Perkins

          Shouldn’t you be commenting on her column and not attacking her husband? Btw I did in a seperate post.

        • nameless

          Wil, what is so vicious about it? P.S. I wish you were banned from this website and society in general.

          • Wil

            That hurt!

    • Jeff Webb

      Assuming you’re chronologically an adult, have you ever been a stay-at-home parent, Wil?

      • Wil

        As a Man…No, but I’m assuming, you are! Right?

        • Jeff Webb

          When my wife’s at work, I’m home with the kids. When I’m at work, she’s home with the kids. In that regard we’re both stay-at-home parents.

          I was going to correct you in detail on the idiotic notion that parenting his kids at home makes a man a bum, but then I remembered your opinion doesn’t mean a damn thing.

          • Wil

            Really, I’m just returning some venom back at anchor baby Malkin. She seem to bitch about everything. What an unhappy woman.

          • Wil

            I’m sorry you don’t make enough money to support your family. My wife did not have to keep working after we had children.

    • bread

      Did you ever consider that he might be at home caring for their kids???

      • Wil

        Real men work! Mothers take care of the children.
