We knew there was a comparison between right-wingers and ISIS (authoritarians wearing the same shade of jackboot tend to match), but did you know that they’re also using the “progressive socialist tactic of ‘trolls'” to harass the military?
According to Fox contributor Allen West, they are.
In an October 9 post to his website, West called attention to a Fox report detailing how Islamic State sympathizers were harassing military personnel and their families online. Since this is Allen West we’re talking about, it was naturally the fault of liberals/progressive/commies/nazis/socialists/whatever else he’s scared of. He told his readers that the tactic was “learned” from progressives, who use it to “flood a website or Facebook account with vile and insidious comments.”
And West knows exactly who’s to blame on the left:
It normally begins with some leftist central command, such as Media Matters or Daily Kos, to issue a call of attack — and the mindless lemmings follow, normally completely devoid of any knowledge or understanding of a topic. It is the leftist progressive tactic of instilling fear, coercion and intimidation. And ISIS is following suit, using the exact same tactics.
Of course, as we all know, West himself would never say anything that harasses people. Like suggesting that Boko Haram’s kidnappings are a diversion, used to steal attention away from his one life-long obsession, a gal named Benghazi. Or slamming an entire faith, comprising 25% of the human population, as “honor killings, beheadings, and suicide bombings.”
Surely not from such a moral and upstanding individual, with such pure, apolitical intentions.
