5 New Hashtags for Michelle Obama

I shudder to think of the embarrassment and shame these jihadis will feel when they consult their Twitter feeds.

Michelle Obama’s #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, although taken up among the glitterati, has been ridiculed as emblematic of her husband’s weakness and lack of will in the face of Islamic jihad. This is, however, unfair not only to Mrs. Obama, but to Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson and the other noted human rights activists who have endorsed this campaign. After all, it is not the only Obama administration response to the kidnapping, forcible conversion to Islam, and sex slavery of these girls (in accord with Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50, etc.). The administration has now announced that it is sending U.S. troops to help find these girls. Eighty troops. To Chad.

I am not in favor of Wilsonian “nation-building” military adventures in Muslim countries with no tradition of or desire for a pluralistic society that accords equal rights to women and non-Muslims, or for republican rule that would approve laws other than those mandated by Allah in the Qur’an and Sunnah. However, it would be hard to oppose an all-out effort directed toward eradicating Boko Haram – that is, the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad – from the face of the earth.

That, of course, is not what Obama is doing. He is sending a tiny number of troops to a country the girls are not in, so as to engage in aerial reconnaissance to try to find them. But what does a kidnapped schoolgirl who has been forcibly converted to Islam and married to a jihadist look like from the air? U.S. officials know that these girls have been dispersed, which only emphasizes that this initiative is more about style than substance – just like Michelle’s hashtag campaign.

But if that’s what U.S. diplomacy looks like in the Obamanation, then let’s make the most of it. Here are six more hashtags that Michelle (and Rocky, and Han Solo, and Nino Brown) can use to declare their righteous indignation before the world:

Don't think Michelle has anything against marrying a child.

Woodstock gasbags make Woodstock Hashtags.

1) Coptics are Copacetic!

2) Stop slandering Jews. Let J Street do it for you!

3) Leftists don't marry children! Unless we adopt them first!

4) Dude, we propped up the Muslim Brotherhood, doesn't that earn us some hash brownie points?

5) You ban dancing, we ban large caffeinated sodas. Hey, we're Mormon!

6) It's a holiday weekend. Bring back our grills.

7) Hashtag Diplomacy. It goes great with crack pipe healthcare acts.

Yup, wonderful that Islam religion of love and peace. They didn't kidnap the girls, they wanted them to be forcefully converted, then raped, and put into the service of older men, who could keep them in a semi-slave servitude for life.

But what the heck, that is how black Muslims treat other blacks, andyet blacks claim that America treated them bad, and go back hundreds of years to slavery, but a slavery that still exists in Africa.

Hashtag activism is just an extension of bumper sticker activism. In the early "oughts," I noted there seemed to be about an eighty percent chance that a "Free Tibet" sticker would be accompanied by a "No War in Iraq" one. I used to wonder why Tibetans deserved freedom but Iraqis did not, until I realized what my error was.

They were not using the word "free" as a verb.

And that's the whole point. You can be an activist without actually doing anything. Which it seems dilutes the meaning of the word.

"Chanting, “We are Muslims! We are Muslims!,” they burned their passports..."

Well, I can't blame these murderers for that. As any librul will tell you, passports are nothing but racist, Jim Crow, poll taxing photoIDs.
