Note: The author was torn between using the word “bad” in the title of this story and the word “dumb”; while “bad” was chosen in the final version, it should be duly noted that “dumb” equally applies. Thank you.

And in other news, this is happening today.

A singer from Portland, Oregon named James Twyman is heading on over to an ISIS-controlled, war-torn Syrian village to quote “serenade ISIS with songs of peace in a bid to defeat their savage regime” in a plan he has referred to as an “unprecedented spiritual experiment” but what may also be referred to as “suicidal” and/or “the worst idea anyone has ever had ever”.

The plan:

Twyman will travel to the Israeli-Syrian border to hold a concert in a Syrian village. It is in ISIS-dominated territory, but Twyman says he has people there setting it up and making sure it’s as safe as possible.

“As safe as possible”… yeah, sounds reassuring. Continued:

“With all the violence, with all the feat that has been generated, I think the only answer is for us to focus on love and compassion and peace. And so do something as crazy as going over there, it hopefully inspires people.”

Twyman doesn’t seem to realize that it will probably inspire ISIS all right… to torture and kill him.

Again, this is going down today apparently. Here’s one of the videos Twyman made about it.

Not that peace isn’t a nice idea. Love is great, too. But you can’t just show up somewhere and make people suddenly agree with your worldview simply because you pull out a guitar. Stuff like that only works in Disney movies.

Even the State Department is saying this is a really bad idea… (Guess casting for future ISIS green screen beheadings is full up at the moment.)

  1. Absolutely not, I’m all for love an peace but I will boycott this in protest for my concern for your life an the life of others.
    This isv absolutely crazy, have you spoke to your family about this, I’m telling you don’t go.

  2. Mr. James Twyman,

    It will be interesting to see if you can defeat all physiological knowledge and sing with your dead detached from your body.

    My compliments that you seem to perform with your cranium inserted in your rectum.

    I can recommend a good Proctologist if you would like to have it removed.

    For the Republic,

  3. Because that’s what has been missing the entire time, acoustic guitars and peace songs. There not terrorists there just misunderstood frustrated. As I don’t support there ideals and killings so maybe lay off the medical MJ and maybe start with a soundtrack at first or as comedian joe rogan had said drop a bunch of sucidal mushrooms and pot brownies first then go in with the guitar.

  4. People like this misguided individual assume that groups like ISIS are made up of actual human beings with actual human feelings and abilities, like the capability to feel remorse, empathy, compassion, and so on. They also consider that ISIS is legitimately Islamic and represents the standard Muslim worldview, like their puppet masters in Saudi Arabia and the other Salafist Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf.

    Such delusions are not only false, but deadly beyond all objective reason and comprehension. They don’t realize that ISIS is nothing more than a death cult organized along similar lines as the ultraviolent drug cartels in Mexico such as the Zetas, but far more extreme.

    They cannot be reasoned with or bargained with or even capable of spending more than a few minutes to listen to what anyone outside their cult has to say. They cannot even be compared to animals, considering how murderous they are and their aggressive motivation in raping children, both boys and girls, as young as toddlers — according to eyewitness accounts and intelligence reports from Iranian and Russian special forces, they have no qualms about raping anything that moves, whether babies or dogs or goats, anything and anyone.

    Of course, you won’t hear any of these horrifying facts from American, Canadian and European media, since it was Western governments that actually funded and armed this inhuman cult, as they did with Lords Resistance Army and Boko Haram in Africa, among others.

    Anyone who believes they can successfully reach out to such barbarians deserves whatever hell descends upon them once they hand themselves over to ISIS.

    In 1998, against the advice of both the Iranian Armed Forces and the Revolutionary Guards, Iran sent eight diplomats to Afghanistan to try to negotiate peace and trade agreements with the Taliban, in a vain attempt to pacify the Taliban and convince them to kick Bin Laden out and stop the wholesale ethnic cleansing of ethnic and religious minorities. As soon as these diplomats set foot on Taliban territory, they were all beheaded right there on the spot, without any hesitation whatsoever. They didn’t even get a chance to even open their mouths to speak, that is how fast the Taliban acted in beheading them.

    Taking the above example into consideration, ISIS is a million times worse than the Taliban. The word “peace” isn’t even in their vocabulary. They don’t even acknowledge the validity of concepts like human rights, let alone individual rights.

    If that pathetic idiot is intent on making himself some kind of martyr by offering himself up to ISIS in the name of “peace”, all I can say is good riddance.
