20 year-old ‘South Park’ Critic and Taliban Wannabe

Chesser100722wide

How Zachary Adam Chesser, who grew up in suburban Fairfax County, played football and rowed crew at his High School, came to espouse a fundamentalist Islamic ideology is not yet clear, but he was so greatly offended at an episode of South Park that supposedly showed Muhammad in a bear costume ( turns out it’s really Santa in the bear costume ) that he issued “warnings” on his website.

Chesser came to the attention of authorities when he attempted to board a flight to Uganda July 10.  He admitted that he was on his way to try to join an al-Shabab training camp.

Note to parents : if your teen is offended by South Park, it’s time to worry.
