Following members of ISIS on their social media accounts is a wealth of great information. It’s been a worthwhile effort to see some of the propaganda they’ve been churning out. These Daeshbags* who rape and pillage deserve to die, but I have to admire their dedication to their mission.
I can only pray that Patriots in America have this kind of determination to restore Liberty, just as soon as we realize that being fat, comfortable, and happy is killing us and our way of life.
But just as our Founders’ determination was Righteous, so must be ours. Last year John Ainsworth told me, “You don’t get morality from immorality.” He was saying that we can’t be immoral in our efforts to restore Liberty, and I believe him.
One thing we can say about Daesh* is that they’re committed to the Caliphate, and are terribly immoral even by the most liberal of standards. I remember reading a story about how some ISIS fighters had raped a woman so badly that she could no longer defecate – and I know that’s extremely graphic, but it illustrates the levels of their evil and brutality.
But even as they’re wiped off the battlefield, they still fight. And if there’s one takeaway from all this, it’s that humanity can be dedicated to accomplishing the mission under any circumstances; from Leonidas and his men at the Hot Gates, to that winter at Valley Forge, to young men storming the beaches at Normandy suffering heavy losses and fighting on to defeat Naziism.
In my opinion, tougher things than restoring our Liberty have been done throughout history. I sometimes wonder if we can channel that righteous dedication and complete our mission.

The term “Daesh” is strategically a better choice because it is still accurate in that it spells out the acronym of the group’s full Arabic name, al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham. Yet, at the same time, “Daesh” can also be understood as a play on words — and an insult. Depending on how it is conjugated in Arabic, it can mean anything from “to trample down and crush” to “a bigot who imposes his view on others.” Already, the group has reportedly threatened to cut out the tongues of anyone who uses the term.
