Done with this crap? So are we. But support from terror groupies and conspiracy nuts just keeps on comin’.
Alex Jones insisted the Boston Marathon bombing was a “false flag” operation, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother claims it was all a setup and twisted Twitterers continue to tweet their lust for the bombing suspect. As Twitchy reported, the movement to “free Jahar” is in full swing, led in part by future Infowars correspondent Troy Crossley, who shared this petition on Twitter.
The “Petition to guarantee Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the right to a fair trial” was posted at Change.org by Anita Temisheva, but chief Dzhokhar truther Crossley was among the first to push it on Twitter. The text of the delusional petition calls the Tsarnaev brothers “wrongfully accused” and implores President Obama to “end this persecution” before petitioners “see blood of yet another innocent victim.”
On Monday, the petition had attracted over 2,000 supporters. By Wednesday morning, the petition had over 10,000 signatures.
The full text of the petition:
We believe that within the chaos caused by the Boston Marathon explosion, two young men were wrongfully accused of something they did not do, and one of them has lost his life before even getting the opportunity of a proper trial. We do not wish to see blood of yet another innocent victim, someone who, by U.S. law, is innocent until proven guilty. It is vital to end this persecution, as all the conflicting information shown by the media, and footage from the incident, seen by people from all corners of the world, doesn’t manifest itself as enough evidence to condemn Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of this heinous crime. You promised to the world that you would get to the bottom of this, and we hope you keep your word. We want evidence. We want truth. We want justice.
Reminder: Tsarnaev reportedly admitted to authorities that he and his older brother, Tamerlan, carried out the attacks. But signatures are still coming in.
Here are some of the comments tagged as “most popular” on the Change.org petition:
I am not an extremist or anything like that, but at this moment I do believe this is a set-up.
I’m tired of the EVIL, and CORRUPT U.S. GOVERNMENT sacrificing innocent people with Domestic Terrorism committed by the CIA, FBI and their ‘Black Ops’ CRIMINALS. Look at the 9-11 Building Implosions, and highly Orchestrated “Sandy Hook shootings.” EXPOSE THE TRUTH about the REAL CRIMINALS!
There is no hard evidence ANYWHERE of him or his brother committing acts of terror.
Looks like supporters of the Tsarnaev brothers spend plenty of time on Infowars … just like Tamerlan Tsarnaev reportedly did.
Editor’s note: The title and text of this post have been updated to reflect that the petition surpassed 10,000 signatures just after 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday.
