Vice President Joseph R. Biden had some choice words for Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, calling them “perverted jihadis” while speaking at a memorial service for slain MIT police officer Sean Collier Wednesday afternoon.

“Why, whether it’s al Qaeda central out of the FATAs or two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knock-off jihadis here in Boston. Why do they do what they do?” he asked rhetorically.

The vice president insulted the brothers a second time during an extended appreciation for police officers, Politico reports.

“You are their worst nightmare,” Mr. Biden said. “All the things, these perverted jihadis, self made or organized, all the things they fear.”

“The only way they can gain ground is to instill fear that causes us to jettison our values, way of life, for us to change,” he added. “The moment we change, the moment we look inward, the moment we get into a crouch in a defensive, that’s the moment when they win.”
