Following their enthusiastic support for the replacement of Common Law by Sharia, the geniuses at the State Department's "Think Again, Turn Away" social media campaign have now issued another brilliant Tweet:
People worldwide promise online to vacation in Tunisia in defiance of deadly terrorist attack
Beneath it are the usual selfies of persons holding up bits of cardboard, which these days seems to be the only form of resistance fin de civilisation westerners know. I expect we'll all be standing around selfie-sticking our #UnitedAgainstNukes hashtags when the mullahs drop the big one.
But that's just standard-issue witlessness. What takes it to the next level is that, at the same time the US State Department is urging everyone to defy the terrorists and support Tunisian tourism, it's urging State Department employees to steer well clear of Tunisian tourism. Here's State Department honchette Jen Pskai just one hour before the above Tweet:
The Embassy remains open and is located 10 miles from the museum. All – excuse me – employees have been accounted for, informed of the situation, and urged to avoid the museum and surrounding vicinity.
That would be the tourist area.
Gotcha. The State Department says Tunisian tourist sites are far too dangerous for State Department employees to go anywhere near, but you and your gran'ma should book your tickets today.
This is the most lavishly funded and entirely moronic foreign ministry on the planet.
