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.)

    Islam does not understand peace so it is a lost cause.

    Why doesn’t he start with the rancher roadblock in his own state? Maybe he can get the FBI to stop shooting innocent people while he’s at it.

  • Lapsed Altruist

    A walking billboard for delusional disorder. He’ll get what’s coming to him. Some people will do anything for their 15 minutes. Unfortunately it’s likely his life span, once he’s in the thick of it, that’s going to span 15 minutes. Then again, maybe he’ll convince all the baddies to throw down their arms and go home. Right?

  • Broos

    It’s a USO tour for our Company troops, volks! The definition of ISIS : US (CIA)! Jest ask Billary!

    • curenado

      Ah…so he will be connected to troops that won’t straight out kill him. That’s probably best

      • LiberalsRLost

        just use him as the goat…..

  • curenado

    Bad idea – maybe he got suicide?

  • randy wellman

    send him on over….and HOPEFULLY, he will need a BUNCH of support personell along WITH him, presumable more of the same type of “liberals with the gift of blab”…maybe we can get them to make it a weekly thing…sending a bunch every week to different parts of the country…that war should be over in a jiffy!

  • Smarty

    Sing along:
    “War! What is it good for?….Absolutely nothing…uh-huh uh-huh”……
    Song over.

  • Eric Blake

    This is an absolute brilliant idea. Note to almost all Portlandians (except conservatives), please follow in this guys footsteps and get over there. They (ISIS Members) need your hugs and music.

    ISIS “needs” him so they can blow him up in a rocket attack and blame it on the Russians.

  • jaguar

  • farmgirl

    I understand that TRUE Muslims hate music and it is forbidden in many of their places, just like dogs, pet pigs, alcoholic drinks, ham sandwiches, muscle shirts, shorts, etc, etc.

  • Jonny rRingworm

    Pure Genius. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before? In the aftermath of his concert isis will call in all operatives, return all muslim’s from foreign countries. I kick myself for not thinking of this myself… All Sarcasm…

  • Alabama Mothman

    Islam is the religion of pieces, not peace.

  • LiberalsRLost

    Dear Follywood:
    please send more actors and other entertainers to keep ISIS informed on how to stop war……

    Thank you…

    Oh no they just need a one way tickets……
    Oh…..well it’s complicated…well not really but….

  • Mike Peters
