State Department's latest dumb idea on fighting terrorism

The idea that we will overwhelm ISIS with tweets was just the beginning. Look what the State Department has done. Why they’ve gone and made such a pretty logo, using all the colors of the rainbow. It’s simply dazzling.

It looks like somebody let Marie Harf get access to a box of crayons this week and went to town on this design. And just look at all the different font styles and colors to drive the point home. No doubt single color lettering would not have been inspiring. But this! This really makes a statement.

I have to hand it to them. I think this is really going to do the trick.

But hold onto your seats because the design is not all the State Department put out. They also wrote the following to go with the pretty picture:

This week, the White House hosted a Summit to Counter Violent Extremism…Secretary of State John Kerry said, "Our goal today is to take this chance to think broadly about how to prevent violent ideologies from taking hold…."

Secretary Kerry described this effort as the "the defining fight of our generation" and a task not just for governments but everyone, including civil society, the faith community, foundations and philanthropists, and the private sector….

What solutions do you think are most critical to countering violent extremism?

I couldn’t resist skimming through some of the ideas people sent in. Here is a sampling:

How about starting by identifying where this "violent extremism" comes from: radical Islam….

Definitely not giving Islamic terrorists jobs!....

Close the border….

Too late. Violent ideologies have already taken hold. Mission now is to search and destroy (kill) all individuals and nations who participate in or support the violence….

First we need to name them REGARDLESS OF WHO OR WHAT THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ARE….

The best solution I can think of is to elect serious people who will deal decisively with radical Islamic terror and reject the incompetents now in charge.

Seriously?? U have highly trained, well paid experts to make such decisions. And u want my opinion?? I'm a nurse and I certainly wouldn't ask your opinion on my patient's health status! You don't need to placate the masses by reaching out for their opinions. That's condescending!! Do your job Obama!!

Honestly, this is a joke - right??

If you would like to join Senator Tom Cotton who brilliantly trolled the site, go here.
