ISIS released a video yesterday showing a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive. They also have continued their brutal campaign of murdering gay people through stoning and defenestration. Allahu-frackin’-Akhbar.
The Jordanian Government responded quickly and decisively, announcing the immediate execution of ISIS prisoners in its custody. It is difficult, if not impossible, to imagine Emperor Golfpants responding with such decisive action. Indeed, I expect the State Department will soon be denouncing Jordan for ‘escalating tensions’ or some such nonsense.
It is important to remember that the ISIS savages who are burning people alive, beheading infidels, selling women into sex slavery, and brutally murdering gays are the ideological brethren of the terrorists our Emperor is hellbent on releasing from GITMO.
It is a puzzlement that the civilized world continues to allow ISIS to exist at all.
But instead, the progressive left is pretty much by deed, if not necessarily in word, in ISIS’s corner. Leftist website Gawker is openly sympathetic to the terrorists on this one. Human Rights Watch is, likewise, is discouraging Jordan (and other nations) from being too tough on ISIS because that might make them even meaner. (Leftist logic at its finest.) The shrill, aging, leather-faced attention whores of Code Pink are also siding with the terrorists (as usual). And the libertarian whackjobs at Reason have shown that, on this one, they have no disagreement with the far left whackjobs.
To Obama and the American Left, the only Dangerous Extremists are people who want to balance the budget and restrain the President to the Constitutional limits of his authority.
