Celebrated feminist author wants to know if ISIS is celebratory and joyous

If ever proof positive were needed that the intelligentsia can be idiots, Joyce Carol Oates just served up a gigantic Exhibit A. On Sunday, she sent out the following tweet:

All we hear of ISIS is puritanical & punitive; is there nothing celebratory & joyous? Or is query naive?

I don’t know if Ms. Oates is suffering from a recent mental disorder or if this is indicative of her baseline state of mind. Either way, the woman seems to be vying for the Useful Idiot (and then some) Award of the Year.

This pathetic excuse for a thinking person not only wonders about the good qualities of savages who behead people, who put people in cages and burn them alive, who enslave and rape women, who dismember children, who crucify people, who cage and drown people, who run people over with tanks, who murder, maim, destroy, and threaten, and who are committing genocide against Christians in the Middle East. But she is compelled to try to balance unthinkable evil with something good.

People like this should be mocked and marginalized at every turn. And so quite a few individuals took to twitter to do that very thing, as reported at The Blaze:

·      Maybe get an intern to do your tweets, Joyce.


·      maybe like, in their off hours they make community gardens and read to blind kids.


·      I am convinced Joyce needs a ghost writer for Twitter


·      The crowd always seems upbeat at those stonings they host.


·      this is that awkward part of dinner where the family turns to one another and asks, "Shall we do something about Mother?"


·      naive? Your query is downright the dumbest thing you've ever posted. That says a lot too


·      I suspect that you have the funds to visit Raqqa and come to your own conclusions. I suspect you'll come out a head.

I leave it to AT readers to chime in.
