Lynne Stewart slithers back into the spotlight

Having conned a federal judge into granting her compassionate release two years ago, America-hating terrorist lawyer Lynne Stewart is back to her old tricks.

Michelle Malkin writes:

Old age and illness have not dulled the tongue or treasonous soul of convicted jihad-enabling lawyer Lynne Stewart. She’s as vile and violence-promoting as ever.

Freed from prison two years ago on “compassionate release” after being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the flaming 76-year-old radical is still championing left-wing massacres against the police. And still kicking America in the teeth.

The Associated Press reported over the holiday weekend that the mouthy menace remains stubbornly devoted to “armed struggle.”

Of course Stewart, long a love object of the Center for Constitutional Rights, once referred to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an example of “armed struggle.”

Now she hails the Black Lives Matter-inspired killers who gunned down police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge this summer as noble freedom fighters.

“They are avengers,” Stewart said. “They spoke for some of us when they did that.”

“They are not brazen, crazed, you know, insane killers,” she said. “They are avenging deaths that are never and have never been avenged since the ’60s and ’70s.”

Stewart was released from prison in January 2014 after being diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. She was supposed to stay caged until 2018.

I’ve written about this evil waste of skin many times.

Stewart was convicted in 2005 of providing material support to terrorists. While acting as legal counsel to Omar Abdel-Rahman (a.k.a. the Blind Sheikh) she illegally relayed a message from this man who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The communiqué, from a prisoner who was held incommunicado specifically to prevent him from directing terrorist activities from his prison cell, was “the blessing of a return to violence from a terrorist leader,” prosecutor Anthony Barkow said. In it,  Abdel-Rahman urged his disciples in Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya (a.k.a. The Islamic Group), to abandon a ceasefire with the government of Egypt and resume terrorist operations.

Stewart likens American conservatives to the theocratic totalitarians of the Islamic world who abuse women, treating them as chattel. “The American right,” she said, “is certainly anti-woman, anti-inclusiveness, and I certainly oppose that here in my own country for my own sake, for my children’s sake, for the way I want to live.”

Stewart should never have been released early from prison.
