Clinton’s Program to Counter ISIS Propaganda ‘Embarrassing,’ ‘In Disarray’

A program touted by Hillary Clinton that was designed to counter the online propaganda of ISIS has been sharply criticized as ineffective and even embarrassing, according to recent reports.

    Of course it is. war on women war on women war on women. President Ovarian-American.

      I think Killarie’s new way of developing her agenda is to drop her pants and see which way the wind is blowing up her ass. Not a pretty sight.

    Huma is whispering sweet MoBro ideas in Hill’s ear. And Clinton won’t disagree because liberals believe that if they can just control everything ISIS-style, utopia will prevail.

    “A program… designed to counter the online propaganda of ISIS…”

    OK, stop right there. Official government propaganda/counter-propaganda on ANY subject is (with extremely few exceptions) either so bland that people filter it out automatically, or so hokey it’s embarrassing and insulting. What, you’re going to have an old white woman professor clinically point out passages in the Quran forbidding terrorism? How about Obama himself doing a rap video on saying no to jihad?

    Post-Modern political theory wants to look at non-traditional sources of power and influence (social media is a prime example). Progressives generally embrace Post-Modernism with a passion, but while vectors like social media can work (or even excel) under some circumstances, they make the mistake in assuming that in can wholly supplant traditional, less elegant fonts of power and influence (eg. ‘Do what I say or I’ll kill you’).

    That’s why we have Michelle tweeting #BringBackOurGirls with a frowny face; they really think they can micromanage people’s thoughts as deftly and gracefully as a Hollywood ad campaign. After all, their friend with a Masters in conceptual theater told them so.

      It works on us, mostly.
