And my first thought was, wow. That's awfully insensitive. There are young girls missing in Nigeria, and some jerk photoshopped our FLOTUS with a pathetic, tear-jerker sign. What a craven, trying to score cheap political points while young girls are in danger.
And then I saw that it wasn't a PhotoShop.
Michelle Obama Tweets Message of Support for Missing Nigerian Girls
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenage activist who survived a Taliban assassination attempt, also spoke up for the missing girls, in an interview with NBC News.So, let's see. The girls have been gone for three weeks, and the best we can do as the most powerful nation on earth is have the First Lady hold up a pathetic sign? Hashtag activism? That's all we have?
On April 14, militants with the Islamic fundamentalist group Boko Haram reportedly attacked the Government Girls Secondary School in the northern Nigerian town of Chibok and kidnapped nearly 300 girls.
The people responsible for this are of the same bent as the people that took down the World Trade Center. They've got to be laughing so hard they soil their garments at this. The most powerful nation in the world, the same one that destroyed the Taliban and smashed terrorist training camps all over the Middle East and Asia, is not only powerless to do anything but happy to show the world how powerless we are?
What the bloody hell is this going to drive these monsters to do next?
They don't respect us, and after a stunt like this, they sure as hell aren't going to fear us. How brazen are they going to be after this? I mean, you have the woman that sleeps next to the most powerful man in the world practically begging the monsters to, well, stop being monsters. Those girls are gone. They've been gone for 3 weeks. I hope I'm wrong, but I fear they are no longer able to be returned.
And what do we do? Some pathetic display of faux concern meant to convey just how much we care. We're sending a team to help look for them. A non-military team, because we don't want to offend anyone. These bastards are terrorists, you yutz. What the bloody hell do you think is going to happen if our team does happen to find those girls? Are we going to ask the terrorists pretty please to give them back?
Or are we going to be holding up gorram hashtag cards for the American team?
That is all.
