Mrs Boston Bomber and a Metaphor for Liberal America

article-2312588-196B7722000005DC-799_306x626

The story of Katherine Russell, Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s American wife may be an all too unfortunate metaphor for what happens when the liberal Eloi meet the Muslim Morlocks.

Russell is portrayed as a typical product of the liberal system; nice, tolerant and eager to make the world a better place.

At high school her personal motto was ‘Do something about it or stop complaining’. She dreamed of going to college and joining the Peace Corps.

The eldest of three daughters, to emergency physician Dr Warren Russell and nurse Judith, hers is a background steeped in the values of family and education.

It would be hard to imagine a childhood more rooted in America’s pilgrim heritage than Katherine’s.  It is in there in the names of the towns – Plymouth, Dorset, Greenwich – where many of her friends still live and writ large in the wholesome values of the one-time Honors student’s home life.

And her parents could see no reason not to get on board with their daughter converting to Islam and marrying a Chechen Islamist. That would be intolerant.

Katherine Russell is believed to have married and had a daughter with Tamerlan Tsarnaev three years ago, having become a Muslim following her freshman year at Suffolk University in Boston.

Neighbours said that Mr and Mrs Russell had been “very supportive” of their daughter’s decision to take up Islam, which saw her begin wearing a veil covering her hair, in line with Muslim practice.

They said Ms Russell appeared not to return to university after her conversion and the birth of her daughter, who is thought to be called Zahara.

And supportive is what you’re supposed to be. Who cares about the petty details.

Katherine Russell, the widow of Boston bomb suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was ‘an all-American girl who was brainwashed’ by her extremist husband according to one schoolfriend.

By the time she was 21 she had married him and borne his child, Zahara, now three. She had converted to Islam, hidden her tumble of chestnut hair beneath the hijab and undergone a change so profound that today few friends profess to truly understand it.

It was during that time that she converted and her youthful priorities appear to have changed as she left in 2010 without graduating.

By then her relationship with Tsaraev was intense. Not even his arrest for violently assaulting her in 2009 could change that.

Of course not. Abusing women is part of an Islamic marriage. Once you tolerate part, then you have to tolerate the whole and blame yourself for what goes wrong.

The story of Katherine Russell is the story of Europe and America. It’s the story of what happens when you tolerate and tolerate until you’re wearing a Hijab and a black eye and your husband roams the streets murdering your friends and neighbors in the name of the religion you accepted even though you don’t really understand it.

And most tellingly of all, the only papers seeming to cover this angle of the story are British. The American press is still claiming that Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s had nothing to do with it.

Tolerance Uber Alles.

    I wonder if Dr. and Nurse Russell treated any of the victims.

    • Peacekeeper

      Sounds like her parents are Libtards too. If any man EVER lays a hand on my daughter, he will be the one wearing the Hijab to cover the black eyes I'll be giving him. Islam is a cult, not a religion. Start DEPORTATIONS NOW!! 75,000 visas given last year for Muslim students. 15,000 of those are not at the schools they said they were going to attend. That's 15,000 Bombers and Hijackers on our streets people. If one man could shut down a city like Boston, what will 15,000 do?

      • Human Being

        Wow, this was approved.

  • Paardestaart

    Idiotarians never learn.. Good people, certainly: they remind me of the parents of Rachel Corrie
    It's an indestructible religion, this belief in a better world through tolerance and acceptance of something they still think of as a belief
    They Russels probably would have welcomed Hitler himself in their home, had they been around in the 1930..And they always kept believing that 'the Russians love their children too' and that Alger Hiss was innocent, they still apologize for slavery every now and then and they've always voted Democrats
    Now their daughter is a widow of a jihadist enemy of her people and they are the grandparents of a half morlock little girl who will wonder where her loyalties lie and who will cherish dreams of her father..

      You sound ridiculous. It's a pretty big jump to go from going along with who your daughter, who you love and trust, decides to marry (or abandoning her), and inviting Hitler into your house.
      Most muslims are not violent. personally, I wouldn't want my daughter converting to Islam but what you're saying is just nutty.

      • alexisjemima

        It isn't nutty at all. What you don't understand is that Islam is not, properly speaking, a 'religion', but rather a totalitarian political ideology whose goal is world domination — through any means possible. Its quasi-religious or ritualistic aspects are a shallow facade. If Allah is a 'god', he is a god who demands that people kill a lot of other people in his name, as the foremost expression of his worship. Does this sound like a genuine representation of the Creator or Divine worshiped by other religions?

        As a violent, totalitarian system for world domination, featuring overt genocidal hatred of the 'other', Islam is most similar, apart from its superficial details, to Nazism. So the analogy of this woman's parents welcoming Hitler in the 1930s is actually, perfectly apt.

      • mendel

        As you said very well a vast majority of Muslims are not violent. People think they are because the news only is covering the few Nuts. Should I go stereo typing every race, ethnicity, and religion? if so then I would be saying everyone is violent. Why should I just them based on a minority but not others?

        • Mary Sue

          miss the point much?

        • No One

          We are not supposed to lump all muslims together? Nonsense! Muslims lump themselves together.

          Muslims are responsible for their own image. Vast majority of Muslims sit on their hands in silence when their cousins, uncles, fathers, brothers, commit war on the West. This vast majority of Muslims feed, support, protect and obfuscaate on behalf of their fellow Islamic family members who are waging an unjust war against Christians, Jews and other Infidels.

          Stop presenting your liberal progressive cowardice as tolerant educated thoughfulness.

        • defcon 4

          The vast majority of muslimes are busily persecuting everyone non-muslim in every LAST one of their islamofascist cesspools and the REST of the muslimes have no problem with it whatsoever.

          Well….If you want an NBA team, you'll probably want some African Americans. If you want a lawyer, can't go wrong with a Jew. Germans have some EXCELLENT cabinet makers. The French make fabulous chefs. If you want to terrorize, kill, maim, and hate, you'll find muslims the most qualified.

        • candy

          Non violent muslims exist to convert people to Islam , build and run mosques ,financial,educational and charity systems ,reproduce and establish muslim only areas and politicians . Everything they do is for Islam.

          You do stereotype- by classes,ethnicities ,races,religion and sex. Everyone in the world does,especially liberals. The minute you mention privilege ,minorities ,victims or religions you've begun stereotyping instead of viewing people as individuals . You have no idea if a muslim is non violent unless you can read their minds. The marathon massacre clearly shows that.

      • kafir4life

        Are you kidding? We NEVER hire muslims! We NEVER shop in their stores, nor in stores that hire them. Sometimes they explode! Sometimes. Sometimes they set bombs to kill others. Sometimes. Why would you take that risk. It's best to just watch them when you see them. Stare at them. If it makes them uncomfortable, you'll get over it. It doesn't matter if they do. If they approach you and say "why are you looking at me", say "Because you appear muslim and sometimes muslims go ka-boom, so I'm watching you for my safety." They seriously don't even need to like it. Tough.

      Fascinating ! Bill Shakespeare wrote something to that effect.

  • Mary Sue

    Yup, brainwashed stockholm idiot she is.

    • candy

      I disagree a bit. She wasn't forced to do anything .
      While her husband was in Russia she spoke to him Every day, using Skype and she instructed him on how to observe religious practices correctly when he lapsed,
      His aunt in Russia. Suleimanova ,said Sunday from her home in Makhachkala, Dagestan.that her nephew was considering bringing his wife to Dagestan.

  • Chezwick

    I find this sub-plot – the supposedly hapless widow-convert – to be absolutely fascinating. What Daniel wrote above was exactly what I said to my wife after learning about the perp's American-born, Muslim-convert wife: "My God….what were her parents thinking?"

    I found it interesting that the perp's aunt in Toronto said "He married a Christian, so [the bombing] couldn't have been about religion." Message to Auntie, SHE CONVERTED TO ISLAM!!!!

    Now, the question about Kathleen Russell becomes: Will she remain a Muslim? My guess, given the liberal proclivities of her family, is that the obvious lessons of the experience will be lost on her, that she WILL indeed remain a Muslim, and that within a year or two, will marry another Muslim man.

  • Vicki10252

    Where is NOW? Where are the women's rights activists? Oh yeah, declaring that Republicans are waging a war on women.

    • Mary Sue

      NOW doesn't care if "brown men" oppress women. After all, it's the "brown women's" responsibility to deal with their own oppression! (as if that makes any sense!)

    • Doug Mayfield

      Vicki – The women's rights activists are silent as they always are about any Islamic mistreatment of women because deep down, they are not really concerned about rights, women's or otherwise, at all.

      The Left uses the excuse of women's rights to criticize America and other free countries. But their real goal is to snuff out freedom everywhere. In that, they find themselves completely in tune with Islam.
      The Left and those who follow Islam are intellectual blood brothers.

  • Ar'nun

    Ah Suffolk U. That makes a lot of sense. This is the University that not only had to one up every other University by extending Israel Apartheid week to a Israel Apartheid MONTH, but have also hosted a who's who of Islamic Supremacist lecturers. Closed to the greater public of course.

  • Drakken

    Fathers don't let their daughters date or marry muslims, period ! I can tell you one thing, it would be a cold day in hell before I let my daughter marry a muslim.

    • Wayne

      How does one stop an adult from marrying anyone they wish?

  • Horace

    Islam is a Satanic murder cult full of lies. Liberal communist/nazi/islamist dupes haven't a clue what they themselves are doing, never mind what their kids are doing. Rushing off to hell and trying to drag the rest of us with them.

  • Zionista

    Where are all the feminists? Shouldn't those cows be braying about how hubby used her as a punching bag?

    • Mary Sue

      no because see it was a minority man that hit her and she has her own agency as a privileged white woman, so it would be "improper" for them to intervene! [/sarcasm while being serious about what they actually think]

    • defcon 4

      Considering the honor killings, mutilations (i.e. in Afghanistan), stonings and acid attacks so common in the muslime world, beating your wife doesn't seem so bad.

  • Maddy

    Ms Russel is obviously a self-hating American woman and liberal who consented to the most odious behavior from her foreign born jihadist hubby in the name of washing the stain of colonial imperialism from her ancestry. As such, her committment to a violent person can be explained. Masochism can be a form of love. Well, that is her business and would have remained her business. Unfortunately, she got involved with a person responsible for the deaths of 5 people and untold mutilations and mayhem and in that capacity she too should be treated as an accessory to the crime and a possible withholder of information that could have prevented the bombing. What else did or does she know? It would be too easy to let a woman like that go scott free. Let us see how far her half baked notions of tolerance stretch.

    • candy

      Let's be honest,she was hot for a different type of bad boy. Like millions of immature girls she found his "badness" exciting and unique .
      Liberal girls don't hesitate to engage in relationships with dangerous men of his caliber .They find them manly,powerful,mysterious and intoxicating .
      Manson,Bundy,Holmes and Clinton all had female groupies.

  • No One

    More muslim phonies. Russia nixes Chechen Islamic State and they blow up some American runners more than a decade later?

    WHO radicalised them? Who got them all stirred up about their ethnicity and social justice for past historical gievances? Well, they attended an American University didn't they? Gee, I wonder where they'd learn to hate/blame the USA?

  • F.K. Juliano

    If your daughter shacks up with a Muslim, you disown her, plain and simple.

  • AlgerHiss

    It is the Islamic MALE that needs to be put in a burka.

  • Edward Cline

    Mrs. Bomber is not only a child of liberals, but a product of American public schools, which "teach" children to be selfless ciphers and worker ants for the "public good." I've often wondered about women who date and marry Muslim men, then are abused by them, yet return to these brutes again and again. Too, I also wonder about the mentality of women whose non-Muslim boyfriends and husbands beat them senseless yet return to them and even defend them. Perhaps both categories of women are so lacking in self-respect that they think, "I'm so worthless I should be punished. My only worth is as a punching bag for my man."

  • marios

    Leftists ideology destroy our country from within. They invented "political correctness" to fool gullible people. Leftists seized control over MSM and Educational institutions. MSM use instead news liberals/leftists propaganda. The same propaganda in schools and Universities as 90 % of teachers and professors are member of Unions and as a result are leftists themselves." Liberalism is mental disorder". I agree. This girl is victim of Dem's ideology they imposed on this country for decades. Her parents are stupid gullible people who have as all liberals no clue what reality is. Dem's establishment, MSM working for them are accomplices of Islamic terrorists if name it without political correctness. Where are Republicans? Why such great patriots as M. Bachmann has no their support, for instance? Why many of them behave as opportunists ?

    • candy

      So when does she stop being a "victim"? She chose to convert,reproduce and remain with a dangerous person. Did she buy hubby guns and hide his bomb making?

      Even after learning the truth she chooses to be muslim and wear a hijab. There are people that are maimed and dead because of her choices. Can she really be called a victim when she contributed to creating 200 real victims?

  • tagalog

    Assuming a pliant type like Mrs. Tsarnaev will eventually bounce back into the real world from Islam, I venture to say that taken overall, she's probably better off without Tamerlan as her husband, even as a single parent.

    And question: why is the MSM referring to Mrs. Tsarnaev as "Katherine RUSSELL?" Surely if Tamerlan were still among us, he'd object strenuously to that. I mean, what happened to cultural relativism?

    If the MSM doesn't get their act together, I'm going to start referring to Mao Zhedong as Mao Tse-Tung and Myanmar as Burma.

  • BS77

    Reminds me of that great film NOT WITHOUT MY DAUGHTER…..the American woman who marries an Iranian, but who realizes the enormity of the error…and then plans and makes her escape. Unfortunately, this woman Mrs. Bomb, is probably too brainwashed to even consider "escape".

  • Thor

    Story of America and Europe??? Those two continents are rather similar when it comes to religion, 5% of Europeans are muslims, 77% are Christians. I bet it's pretty much the same for America. And yes, even though Chechnya is technically part of Europe it is mostly influenced by its proximity to Islamic countries to the east. So you need to rethink this one a bit.

  • Analytical

    I have studied most of the world religions, and I can tell you this: Islam fundamentally, is not very different from Christianity. ISLAM like CHRISTIANITY condemns attacks, and only allows them for self-defense. Also, it's not just Muslim women who cover. Some orthodox Jewish women cover for modesty, nuns cover for modesty, and back in our history, many other women used to cover for modesty, even Christian women. That is why, when you sometimes see movies like Braveheart, you will see some commoner women wearing a drape or scarf over their head. I, myself, am Bahaii (believe in the fact that most religions have some truth and basis to them). I don't condone any violence, and I don't favor one religion over any other. I don't consider myself to be a republican or a democrat. My thoughts are based on a case by case basis. Sometimes, I have conservative feelings, and sometimes I have liberal feelings towards issues- again, depending on the situation. I highly urge you all, to do your own research, and not get all your thoughts and ideas from biased news channels like CNN or Fox News.

  • Analytical

    Sometimes, the real truth comes out a whole lot later in history. We have learned that time and time again from other events which have happened in the past ( i.e.civil engineers and other professionals have come out and said that in 9/11, the way, the trade center fell down, was almost as if staged, and not hit by the plane at all, the way it fell structurally). I'm not saying I know what the truth is. I'm not saying that I don't believe these Chechyan brothers did the attack, all I am saying is as an assertive and consciously-aware American, I like to do my own research before jumping to conclusions and spreading hatred, before I know what something is about (i.e. a situation, or even what a religion is about before going to true sources like the torah for Judaism or Qur'an when it comes to Islam). Always keep questioning and really question yourself if there is even enough evidence, and if things make sense. Peace out.

    • Vcharro

      Have you read any of the Quran? To lump it together wit the Torah is more than ignorant; it is an unforgivable insult to the Torah and Judaism. The Quran is a nasty, antisemitic, contradictory rant, with no ethical core. It is an unholy book full of anger and hatred. Furthermore, no redemptive commentaries are permitted–anyone who tries to explain away the nastiness is considered an infidel and subject to a death fatwa. Read it and weep.

  • Analytical

    I agree with Thor, I think people need to rethink. As a lawyer, I have to question myself everyday, both professionally, morally, and all other grounds. I think it is so ignorant how so very few Americans even know what various religions' doctrines are. When you make the major news channels your master and where you get all your thoughts from, that's a problem from the get-go. Don't believe everything you hear from the news!!!!! Do your OWN research.

      Braveheart depicts events that took place in the 13th century. Western fashions have changed a tad since then. Even Amish women don't cover their heads. Thus, the definition of modesty has changed.
