ISIS terrorists are expertly using hip hop music, video games and even children to successfully recruit young people to their violent cause. That assessment comes today from the FBI and from top U.S. counterterrorism officials, who say the ISIS social media machine is sophisticated, prolific, and unprecedented.
“They are shooting out into the ether-sphere thousands and thousands of messages a day, over 90,000 a day and it’s to millions of people across the globe,” John Carlin, the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division told ABC News Correspondent Pierre Thomas. “What they are trying to do is to convince young people to go slaughter civilians in a vicious war.” (Video at link)

Thank you Dumbstruck, M., Wrath of Khan, Andrew Bostom and all. Pamela Geller has started a national discussion on the meaning of the 1st amendment. This was far far more necessary than I ever thought it would be based on what the majority of the pundits, talking heads and media darlings are saying. It is purely terrifying how few people understand the issue. Ms. Geller is also correct when she says that many of these media exchanges are total moral inversions. They are victim blaming. It was a good analogy that one Pakistani girl who went to school despite the fact muslims had threatened to kill her for doing so, and she was shot in the face for it and got the Nobel Peace Prize as a result.
Well Pamela Geller deserves the Thomas Jefferson 1st amendment prize.
