A U.S. citizen and traitorous idiot who was captured in Afghanistan at the start of the war there against the Taliban after the 9/11 attacks. Real name John Walker Lindh, born in Washington D.C., he became radicalized and converted to Islam as a teen, then went to the Mideast to train and fight along with the Taliban punks against the U.S.

Could also refer to any U.S. citizen or resident who lives/lived or was born in the U.S. but becomes a radicalized Muslim and joins forces with the foreign Taliban or Taliban-related group, against the U.S.
I'm worried about Jimmy and his sudden strange behaviors, proclaiming Sharia Law and booking trips to the Mideast for "education." I hope he won't become another American Taliban.

A derogatory nickname invented by the far-left LWNJs for conservative or evangelical Christians, but sometimes also generalized to other groups such as the US Tea Party. In vile efforts to demonize and marginalize these groups with bullying tactics, they irresponsibly use the name of an organized radical Islamic terror group originating in the Middle East that is known for mass murders, killing and zero respect for human life. Ironically, one major viewpoint conservative Christians have is that of saving lives, including the lives of those in third world countries where fresh water is unavailable, and lives of unborn babies.
I think I should get free birth control (don't want to pay myself) and abortion-on-demand from my employer's health plan. I should be able to have an abortion at 6 months pregnant if I choose. But no! The American Taliban is against this!

Vocal, well-financed, extreme fundamentalist Christians attempting to legislate the oppression of homosexuals, women and science at the expense of our national schools, national health and U.S. Constitution. The equation of these politically and financially powerful extreme fundamentalist Christians with the Afgani Taliban --violent extreme fundamentalist Muslims-- emphasizes the false patriotism of these american zealots.

Due to the efforts of the American Taliban, another women's health clinic closed its doors today.

Careful! Your phone calls are being recorded by the government and monitored by the American Taliban.
