Chechen president: ‘Seek the roots of this evil in America,’ where Tsnarnaevs were raised

posted at 1:13 pm on April 19, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

The statement of Ramzan Kadyrov, Kremlin-backed president of Chechenya, blames the Tsarnaevs’ American upbringing for their actions and criticizes law enforcement for killing Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a shootout Thursday night:

“Tragic events have taken place in Boston. A terrorist attack killed people. We have already expressed our condolences to the people of the city and to the American people. Today, the media reports, one Tsarnaev was killed as [police] tried to arrest him. It would be appropriate if he was detained and investigated, and the circumstances and the extent of his guilt determined. Apparently, the security services needed to calm down the society by any means necessary,” says Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov.

“Any attempt to draw a connection between Chechnya and Tsarnaevs — if they are guilty — is futile. They were raised in the United States, and their attitudes and beliefs were formed there. It is necessary to seek the roots of this evil in America. The whole world must struggle against terrorism — that we know better than anyone else. We hope for the recovery of all the victims, and we mourn with the Americans.”

The statement was apparently released on Instagram.

Update: Or, there were these influences. Dave Weigel reports on the muftis and other Islamic/Salafist leaders the bombers quoted.

Sure thing. Chechens fought for the Mufti with the Nazis, they executed school children in Breslan, took over a theater in Russia for hostages, exported fighters to Afghanistan to fight us – but it’s all America’s fault.

Yeah, we’re all stupid enough to believe that – STFU.

Hmmm, since they seemed to get guidance from radical islamic teaching in America, I can kinda guess where the roots of this evil are.

Oh, and no one forced them to remain here. If they didn’t appreciate American culture and all the potential of being in the USA had to offer, they were absolutely welcome to leave and never look back.

Tamerlan says he doesn’t drink or smoke anymore: “God said no alcohol.” A muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”

Tamerlan says he doesn’t usually take his shirt off so girls don’t get bad ideas: “I’m very religious.”

I’ve been over at the Washington Post all week. The liberals there spent days openly salivating over the “fact” that this was done by anti-tax Tealiban white supremacists, until reality caught up to them. Now they are frantically arguing that these are still “home grown” terrorists who probably were radicalized by either agreeing with Glenn Beck/Fox News, or by being subjected to said Glenn Beck/Fox News “hate speech” for years until it warped their fragile lil’ minds and drove them to lash out or soemthing. No consideration given to Islamic terrorism and radicalism, or that they were raised in a mushy liberal paradise like Cambridge. After all this I really do think that liberalism doubles as a tell for acute lead poisoning.

He’s a Total A*hole Stooge of Putin…This from Wiki

Ramzan Kadyrov strove to gain the respect of his father Akhmad Kadyrov, a Muslim imam. He claims that he always emulated his father. Ramzan enjoys boxing.

The Kadyrovs joined the struggle and fought against the federal forces, with Ramzan, from the age of 16, leading a small unit of separatist fighters in the First Chechen War, and Akhmad became the rebel mufti of Chechnya.

In 2009, Kadyrov stated his approval of honor killings, based on the belief that women are the property of their husbands.

They did exactly what Mohammad would want and he, as the founder of Islam, could not possibly have been a Muslim radical.

There are only muslims. Those who are devoutly ready and willing to fully carry out the teachings to whatever end, and those who personally are not quite, if at all, ready for such things. Most prefer not to rock the boat of their existence if at all possible.

Let’s see, older brother 26, younger one 19, they came here 10 years ago, so….

26 – 10 = 16

I’d say older brother’s “attitudes” were probably pretty thoroughly formed before he got here from…Chechnya.

19 – 10 = 9

Younger brother had almost certainly been thoroughly “madrassa’d” before leaving the Old Country, and oh yes, he idolized his Big Brother.

It would be more accurate to say that living in what amounts to an “ethnic enclave” here in the U.S. for a decade, surrounded by neighborhoods chock-a-block with “politically correct” types who swoon over “authenticity”, and then going to a college where “authenticity” is generally defined by how anti-Western you are, did little to change attitudes that were in all probability thoroughly formed before the pair ever set foot on American soil.

But you know, hey, math is hard.

Why do you say that when you know nothing about what the two boys think or relate to. Tamerlan has often referenced Chechnya.

He said he would box in the Olympics for Chechnya if it were independent. What “American” says that??? Yeah, those who are still tied to their home country.

But hey, I read that both had been born in Kyrgyzstan and that they used Kyrgyz passports to come here, so why wouldn’t Tamerlan box for them, instead of some country he has no connection to.

Tamerlan came here 9 years ago and is/was about 26. That puts him 16 years elsewhere. So you arithmetic is bad, too. Schnoz is 19, so that’s about 50-50. How is that “more” American.

The new leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau (yes, the son of Canada’s late Cuba-loving Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau) recently said the same thing, for which Prime Minister Stephen Harper rebuked him.

One of Canada’s best conservative columnists, Lorrie Goldstein, made a good point in this column:

I disagree with Trudeau and I think it was silly of him to talk about “root causes” before we even know who committed the Boston bombings. But I’m not surprised a Liberal has Liberal views.

Drained Brain on April 19, 2013 at 1:36 PM

I agree. Look at our colleges and schools. You will find liberalism, multiculturalism, communism, radical Islam and revolution.

Bill Ayers is today your typical college professor. Like Rush said.. he got his start as a domestic terrorist who bombed and killed and said he regretted he didn’t bomb enough.

Again… look at all the disconnect going on around us today.

Victims of gun violence stand shoulder to shoulder pushing for gun control with a President who’s administration was caught selling guns to drug cartels with the alleged intention of increasing gun violence.

And now our nation is engaged in a massive manhunt for a terrorist bomber… the same nation who elected a president who started his political campaign in the living room of a former unrepentant terrorist bomber. A terrorist bomber who is now a college professor and was filmed last year giving college students instructions on the finer points of revolution.

Total disconnect.

If this President’s name was George Bush I can imagine the headlines right now… “Bush ties to terrorist bomber too” “Close friend of Bush has dark terrorist past too.”

melle1228 on April 19, 2013 at 1:39 PM

From our friends at Power Line, some observations from Russian scholar Leon Aron:

Islamic radicals have been very active in Chechnya since the early 2000s, when the Chechen independence movement truly radicalized into a fundamentalist movement. Since then, there have been several large attacks in Russia, such as the Beslan school siege in 2004 and the Nord Ost theater attack in 2002. Several Chechens were sent to Guantanamo. . . .

[Ties between Chechnya and al-Qaeda] go[] back to the late 1990s, when the then second-in-command of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, went to Chechnya to look for a base. He was arrested but then let go. The Pankisi Gorge in Georgia was a training camp of al-Qaeda until Georgia — with American help — ousted them. So it’s a long connection.

Oh, snap!

Del Dolemonte on April 19, 2013 at 1:39 PM

The President is a full on Muslim nutcase. He is only President because the last one was even nuttier. That one gave license for Muslims to kidnap and rape Russian Christian woman and then forcefully convert them to Islam. They were then held as slaves.

melle1228 on April 19, 2013 at 1:42 PM

I believe there is some true to what the President of Chechnya had to say.

I just listened to a neighbor of these kids when they were growing up, and she talked about what great kids these were.

The education system is controlled by liberals. One of the tenants of liberalism is that the individual is never responsible for their problems. You failed a standardized test? It’s not because you didn’t study hard enough, it’s because the test is biased. Your dad can’t get a good job? It’s not because he partied his way through school, it’s because of greedy corporations. This lack of personal responsibility also means that the individual is not capable of fixing their problems. What good would trying harder in school do if the test is biased and I’m just going to fail anyway? This leads to a sense of hopelessness/depression/anger, there is no way for an individual to improve their situation (except for voting for liberal politicians of course!).

The liberal/American mindset is conditioning people to feel hopeless whenever they have a problem. That hopeless will sometimes lead to violence.

Look at almost every episode of major violence in Americas near history, and who where the perpetrators? In almost every case, it’s a hopeless liberal!

According to Fox and Steve Emerson, The older one posted 22 YouTube videos and the younger on posted four. This was within the last three years and they were in Russian.

The translation of those videos shows they were definately jihadists and not Chechan separatists.

As far as I’m concerned… he’s half right… and that’s what worries me. They were raised here in the US, and the fact that they got so F’ed up here in the US worries me.

The Roots of Evil ARE here BUT I would also argue that they sure didn’t originate here. This is probably where me and the Chechen President would disagree.

I would also argue that NOW is a good time to start removing said roots.

The root cause is Islam and the left wing that lets such hate flourish on American soil.

There is a kernel of truth in what this guy is saying. Our kids are exposed to people who believe America deserves all of the punishment it gets. They are teaching our kids and controlling pop culture.

America did it!

Just the same old leftist Russian psychology game of “projection” again.

They were in college… young immigrants just trying to get an education.

And hard workers. Doin’ the jobs that Americans won’t take.

Oh! Wait…….

I mean places that produce high number of terrorists.

Back to Detroit than…I get it, but just because someone may want to escape from such a place…

Here is the problem…we are here for them, but it’s up to us to provide something better…and we don’t do that.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

I’m thinking about that. We teach that if you’re Native American, the US screwed you out of your land, if your black, the US made you slaves, if your Latino, the US stole your country, if your Middle Eastern, the US occupies and bombs your home.

Oh snap……

Funny, you should get so excited about the comments of the guy who also said this.

The president of Chechnya emerged from afternoon prayers at a mosque and with chilling composure explained why seven young women who had been shot in the head deserved to die.

Ramzan Kadyrov said the women, whose bodies were found dumped by the roadside, had “loose morals” and were rightfully shot by male relatives in honor killings.

Your ignorance is shocking..but not at all surprising.

True, but the all wise GOP won’t touch that “social issues” hot potato, preferring to talk only about economic theory while spending their combined efforts attacking conservatives like Palin and the tea party with their Rovian super-weapons and leaving their friends across the aisle alone.

They must have been students of some liberal professor or teacher. We’re well aware of where evil takes root in this country.
