Epic. Fail. Why publish this photo if there’s no freedom under ISIS, or Sharia for that matter.
From The Examiner.
Early Wednesday morning, the State Department issued a tweet that included a picture promoting Sharia law over “man made law.” The image was captioned, “Muslims coming out inviting society to #Islam.” The tweet accompanying the photo spoke approvingly of free speech while saying ISIS does not support the concept.
“In open societies, all faiths enjoy freedom of speech; under #ISIS rule, no such thing as freedom of expression,” the tweet said. Many disapproved of the photo and schooled the State Department for the short message.
“You’re joking, right?” one person asked. “Shariah law: Inviting society to a lifetime (and death time for that matter) of slavery and misery,” another person added.
“Epic fail from the DOS,” a third critic said. “The people pictured do have free speech, but they would take it from others.”
Another person cited George Orwell’s line that some are more equal than others, while many scolded the State Department as “stupid.” One critic said the “incompetence of this administration never ceases to amaze me.”
An article at The Blaze said the @ThinkAgain_DOS Twitter account is the agency’s “English-language outreach program” and has been criticized in the past for being “ineffective” and “embarrassing.” According to SITE Intelligence Group Director Rita Katz, the effort, launched in December 2013, is not only embarrassing, it could also give Islamic extremists “a stage to voice their arguments.”
Katz also said the account has engaged in “petty disputes with fighters and supporters of groups like IS (also known as ISIS), al-Qaeda and al-Shabaab, and arguing over who has killed more people while exchanging sarcastic quips.” The account, she added, has been engaging in fruitless exchanges with jihadis “for some time now.”
The account has also raised other issues, according to Katz. “The State Department account is not only a gaffe machine, but in fact some of its tweets walk dangerous ethical lines,” she noted, citing instances where the account directly engaged an al-Qaeda official in a meaningless and somewhat childish Twitter exchange.
If the State Department was worth a fuck, it would stop the playground taunts with ISIS on social media and instead, engage in ways to kill the mutherfuckers. The State Department probably thinks the muzzrats are impressed with their repartee.
Obama is too busy ‘addressing their grievances‘, coddling their sensibilities, identifying with them, and telling Christians to ‘get off their high horse’, to preserve and protect America from the muzzie cutthroats he views as misunderstood kindred spirits.
The State Department’s weapons grade stupidity is an total embarrassment. But then, look who’s running the show.
