Sure ISIS might be taking over entire cities, but we’re winning Twitter. (Not really)
It’s a pity that we didn’t take the time to remember all the heroic Tweeters on Memorial Day who stopped Hitler and the Nazi armies on social media. And who can forget Churchill’s timeless speech, “We will passively aggressively retweet them on the beaches, we will refuse to add them on the landing grounds, we will silently block them in the fields.”
And this could only happen on MSNBC.
FMR. REP. PATRICK MURPHY, MSNBC HOST: This past week, though, when it comes to ISIS, the mixed result — unfortunately, Ramadi was taken over by ISIS. The same time, the army’s delta force captured the money man for ISIS in Syria. so obviously mixed results. So you think the strategy’s working? What else needs to be done?
REP. NANCY PELOSI: It’s an enormous challenge. And we have to fight it on every front, including the front of social media. That’s a place where they have really made more advances than you would have suspected. And that is where we have to fight them, as well.
Maybe we’ll finally get our one millionth follower around the time ISIS takes over Jordan. But that reminds me what Patton told his men.
A man has to be alert all the time if he expects to keep on breathing. If not, some German son-of-a-bitch will sneak up behind him and Tweet him to death. We’re not just going to shoot the bastards, we’re going to rip out their living **** guts and use them to grease our Instagram accounts.
