Darwin Award? "Peace troubadour" wants to perform in ISIS-controlled Syria

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Have you ever heard of the Darwin Awards? It's a fun way of recognizing some of the dumbest things people choose to do every year.

I think I’ve got my nominee for the Darwin Awards for 2016: James Twyman.

He calls himself a peace troubadour. He's proudly announcing he will perform a peace concert in ISIS-controlled Syria.

(Of course, Muslim extremists actually don’t believe in music, certainly not infidel music...)

People like Twyman used to be called hippies. They usually went to Nepal or visited the Maharishi. But today, searching souls want to commune with Islam, which isn’t quite as hippie-friendly.

People like Amanda Lindhout, the amateur journalist who went to Somalia, was kidnapped the next day, held by Muslim terrorists and repeatedly raped.

People like Steven Sotloff, Nick Berg, and Peter Kassig. All beheaded.

None of these people deserved to die. But the kind of doe-eyed hopey-changey-touch-feeliness they all represent is a suicide note, in a world where the chief challenge to our civilization is radical Islam.

How different is his self-delusion any different from half our media and politicians and police, in their dreamy alternate universe about how we can all get along with Islam — so let’s try, by bringing half of Syria to Canada?

The RCMP is bringing out a new women's uniform -- with a Muslim hijab!

What we call “radical Islam” is just mainstream Islam to Muslims. Beheadings, honor killings, jihad and killing infidels are all in the Koran just read a translation. This present Islamic terrorism has all happened before in history many, many times.

Lets wait and see if this is a prank, as Ezra is speculating.

And the Darwin awards are a work of fiction. The story of that guy putting his RV in cruise control so he could leave the driver seat is not true.

Self flagellation has to stop on our part. It has taken 3 to 4 generations to weed out the idea that men control women. Now, in one fell swoop, we have to allow another culture to undo all that good work in a couple of years? Just because they have been taught this backward idea by their spiritual leaders? C’mon, if you cannot embrace our enlightened views then stay the hell in your crappy country that you helped create.

Charleton, I agree. I have to wonder how anyone can blow that hard out of both main orifices. Ficek cries about having to suffer, quote, " the indignation of Muslim heathens" unquote. Yet out of the other side of his mouth, slams Israel. Clearly, he stands behind Hamas, the terrorist organization the Palestinian people themselves voted in, and are now being held hostage by. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t absolve the Palestinians of all responsibility in this conflict. I’m sick of his Israel bashing, and can only hope the general ‘ignoring’ of his anti-semetic rants ( even Holocaust denial) is because people just want him to go away.

For the record, the Darwin Awards are a “real thing”. They’ve had a website for several years and I’ve visited it periodically from time to time. Here’s the URL: http://darwinawards.com/

Greg Ficek Rachel Corie was as ignorant about Israel as you are. Ya those Zionists threw her under the dozzer. Yes that dozzer was on a joy ride crushing shacks just for fun or just for the joy of being a Zionist

Of course, the downside of letting him go to Syria is that he will be captured and get all the attention as everyone wrings their hands trying to figure out how to save his life.

But there is a very strong chance that when he is captured, ISIS will produce a video, where they threaten to behead him. When that happens, a message should be sent to ISIS’ representatives presenting the question: “Well? Are you going to do it? Come on, already? Knock his head off. Kick it around – you like soccer, right? Just do it already.”

Charlton G. Rachel Corrie is a perfect example of a candidate for the Darwin Awards. Its sad that she actually thought stopping a bulldozer by throwing herself in front of it a good idea. But then again, if you believe in an Israeli occupation of Gaza, and that they were knocking those houses down for fun, then you may think being fodder for Hamas is a good idea.

I think this James Twyman should take Neil Young with him. God, I hope Twyman isn’t gay. Lets look on the bright side, if he makes it back alive he can pass on the good word about radical Islam.

A gay Christian peace activist was taken captive by Islamists….prompting a navy seal special rescue….at his release debriefing he recounted…..“.they took me to their headman….I mustered my courage and said….as a gay Christian peace activist I think it is just so wrong to persecute somebody for their sexual preferences and orientation”…..the headman replied…..

As a graduate of Oxford…..class of 99….as a cisgendered heteronormative…patriarchal Moslem………I am inclined to agree….thus being the case….coud you please explain to me why you Christian cocksuckers invaded my country in the first place…and why you put that feminazi witch in charge of Abhu-Graib?

Rachel Corrie was murdered by Israelis… she was the ultimate peace activist in a rogue nation called Israel that is the only country in the world with undefinable borders… Don’t be lulled into a false sense of thinking with what the mainstream media spoonfeeds us they are vicious, malevolent zionists. who will stop at nothing to pursue their agenda… Lots of info out there it doesn’t come through mainstream media I suggest you check it out…

Any chance we can encourage Justin to take his next holiday at Club-ISIS?

Maybe he could join up with that ISIS stand up comedian. I heard he bombed though.

I use to work with a guy who was as nasty a creature to ever have existed. I use to tell him I was going to print a t-shirt with his picture on it with a slogan saying the Grinch became flesh and walked among us (he loved this). This folk singer I think is the embodiment of liberal fantasy/ideology. Somebody needs to stop this Gump like simpleton. I would hate to see the death of the eternal optimist.

Rachel Corrie would rank high for the Darwin award but this delusional lefty takes the cake!

Liberals will always call this fear mongering until they themselves are effected. In other-words their speech is pointless rehash of left wing media, always clinging to the hope they are right even when faced with evidence contrary.
