ISIS: They’re Just Like You and Me


“We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…”

So you see, ISIS wants – in no particular order – exactly  what Americans want:

  • Good jobs and a living wage ($15/hour)

wageBecause every vote counts

  • Free community college tuition

remediation in collegeBecause somebody has to flip burgers for $15/hour (and every vote counts)

  • Common sense gun control

Al-Shabaab-Militants_0Who can’t support common sense measures?

  • An end to the Republicans’ War on Women

christian-women-sex-slaves-iraq Except it’s okay to keep the sex slaves,right?

  • Abortion rights

2014081646Because infanticide is so last century

  • Free condoms

Obama 2012So you won’t be punished with a baby, or something.

  • Gay marriage

Of course there are those who see things differently than our Ms. Harf. Here, for example, is a contrary opinion of what ISIS really wants (h/t Doug Ross) which presents something quite strange - the truth. From, of all places, the Atlantic, a bastion of contemporary liberal thought.

But pretending that it isn’t actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it.

(Haykel) regards the claim that the Islamic State has distorted the texts of Islam as preposterous, sustainable only through willful ignorance. “People want to absolve Islam,” he said. “It’s this ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ mantra. As if there is such a thing as ‘Islam’! It’s what Muslims do, and how they interpret their texts.”

Hmmm; I guess there is one thing that ISIS wants that most Americans don’t:

Death-to-AmericaSo, are we all on board with that?

So how about this, sweet stuff? How about you take your little girl shoes back to the sorority house


and send us somebody who can put her big girl shoes on and kick some ISIS butt.
