Right-wing Christian conservative Republican Trump supporters blew up a train station in Turkey. Looks like the Turks are gonna need to get themselves some common-sense bomb control—not that anybody wants to take away Muslims’ bombs, of course, which is just silly and an outrageous lie. Obama immediately issued a statement calling for Turks and international travelers to remain calm, saying that they “can absorb a few attacks like this” and that people should “chillax, dude, no biggie.” No comment was available or even necessary from the Islamic State’s leadership, who were all laughing too hard to speak.
Meanwhile, in other news, the number 12 man in charge at ISIS was taken out by a drone strike in Outer Hellholistan, bringing IS to its knees and signaling final victory in the “War” on “Terror,” since it is impossible to imagine that he will be replaced by any of the fifty or so underlings scrambling to succeed him. His name was not released because who cares.
Update! Fucking morons.
In a Tuesday hearing on the use of terms like “Islam,” “Muslim,” and “jihad” in discussions on national security, Senate Democrats and expert witnesses argued that using the term “radical Islam” to describe groups like the Islamic State (ISIS) is just as insulting and factually incorrect as using the term “radical Christianity” to describe the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). Yes, they did it with straight faces.
Well, of course they did. They’re idiots, and they really believe their own PC bullshit. Although I must admit, the moron Left is right about this part:
“Radical Islam is no more accurate or appropriate a descriptor of the source of terrorist violence committed by Muslims than radical Christianity would be to describe the Ku Klux Klan, Army of God, or others,” Michael German, a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice, testified at the “Willful Blindness” Senate Committee on the Judiciary hearing organized by Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
“Radical Islam” is of course NOT accurate. The correct and truthful term would be “mainstream Islam,” or more simply, Islam. Not that you’ll ever hear it from any of these contemptible assclowns.
At this point, it’s hard NOT to be rooting for ISIS at least a little bit. A well-timed bomb or three in and around the halls of Congress would do us all a world of good, in all kinds of ways. But they’re not stupid enough to try it; they know that after such a cleansing event, there’d be a dangerous chance of our bringing in some actual leaders, who might then decide to stop organizing committees and holding hearings and start fighting a real war on terrorism or something.
Via Ed, who adds: “Klan-admirer Woodrow Wilson (D-NJ) could not be reached for comment.”
It gets worse update! Another one of those things, increasingly common in life these days, that you will simultaneously find shocking and won’t be the least bit surprised by.
