Which he still won’t call “ISIS”:
— John Kerry (@JohnKerry) February 17, 2016
See if you can make sense of this:
One attendee who was there said that the executives also exchanged ideas and observations about studio worldwide marketing of movies and TV shows, a way of showing how narrative storytelling can cross cultures. The attendee described part of the gathering as a “brainstorming session,” including how to involve storytellers in regions afflicted or threatened by ISIS, as a way to counter the narratives promulgated by the terrorist organization. “Let’s figure out how to involve people who are there,” the attendee said.
Kerry and Hollywood studio chiefs represent a snapshot of the American leftists least likely to be able to counter the “narrative” of ISIS, largely because they are so invested in the false narrative they themselves have created. The real ISIS narrative has been pretty clear: “Let’s kill everyone who disagrees with us.”
Almost Hemingway-esque in its simplicity.
In the most serious of times, there are no serious people in charge. Let’s not continue down this path by electing Kerry’s equally incompetent predecessor at State.
