Jihadists for a People’s Vote?

So it turns out ISIS fighters don’t love Brexit after all.



In the run-up to the EU referendum campaign, a lot of mad things were said about Brexit. We were told it would cause an instant recession, mass exodus of businesses, a Third World War. But spiked’s favourite claim was easily that ISIS would be in favour of it, that they would celebrate it, as then PM David Cameron ludicrously said.

Well, it turns out another Project Fear myth has been debunked. Though ISIS didn’t have an official stance on Britain’s membership of the European Union – it was busy being ISIS at the time – indications have started to trickle out of what ISIS fighters think about Brexit, and they’re not positive. First we had British jihadi bride Shamima Begum, in one of her many interviews earlier this year, declaring that she was bored of Brexit.

And now we have Jack Letts (aka Jihadi Jack), another British ISIS scumbucket begging to be brought back to Britain, saying that he, er, actually doesn’t want to live in a country led by Boris Johnson, former leader of the Leave campaign. Strong words considering Letts was once more than happy to live in a murderous Caliphate.

Both Letts and Begum have huge public profiles. Perhaps the Remoaner lot should get on to them. Jihadists for a People’s Vote?

Begum is not British and never was. Letts is no longer British.

Sorry to impinge on your racist fantasies with nasty, unfeeling facts, but… Shamima Begum is the future of Britain. The Muslim community and other communities of colour growing in numbers far, far faster than whites. Not that it’s difficult to grow faster than a group that is actually declining in numbers.

The future is female, BAME and intersectional. Shamima, misguided as she has been, has a secure place there. Cisgender white males do not. I know you won’t like that, but sorry: facts doesn’t care about your feelings. lol

In case this hasn’t sunk in yet, just what has all this commie-crap game been for the last six months? Anyway, it’s none of my business. I’m in my own world anyway.

Amelia. I was actually in complete admiration of the way you took all those weirdo’s down on the other thread.

I doubt I’ll ever be able to find that story now, but if l do, I’ll let you know.

Anyway, …do your thing. I’ll try not to get in your way, but l don’t mind if you wanna chat.

Surely Jihadists want Open Borders so they can walk in freely and claim benefits whilst they draw their plans to impose a medieval theocracy and abolish equality, persecute gays, stop integration, murder liberal minded apostates & anyone who objects to their barbarism? Jihadists are logically REMAINERS.

Would that be the same David Cameron who (when told by the E.U. that the British Government was NOT allowed to represent the interests of British Citizens) said ‘Okay that’s alright then – I’ll now campaign to remain in the E.U.?

Interesting isn’t it if you’re sectioned under the mental health act you cannot vote; In fact depending on the seriousness of it you are pretty much excluded from society when it comes to employment, you are seen as either a moron or a psycho even by some families. In fact being sectioned is probably better than being left alone because at least they acknowledge the illness and try and treat it but you can’t vote. I have a diagnosis that pretty much sums me up as a cunt, they would probably ban me from voting if they could after all the Blair Govt wanted us all locked up after some high profile murderer. Yet this same society gives these ISIS twats the benefit of the doubt, their families still support them, there are left wingers that are willing to support them and yet people like me have to ‘check our thoughts and behaviour’ to the point that you just wonder what the point of your behaviour

IS wants Brexit? That is up there with the 9/11 theory of Scottish independence. 9/11 led to the “war on terror”, which led to Iraq War II, which led to the collapse of the LP, which led to the rise of the SNP in Scotland (and to the rise of the TP in England, which reinforced the SNP), which led to Indy1, which will lead to Indy2 and to Scottish independence. 9/11 was not about western geopolitical domination of Muslim lands, AQ is an esoteric plot to break up the UK. Now you know. Boris can campaign on the basis of “AQ for YES.” The truth is out there. Either that or PMs tend to be a bit silly.

al-Baghdadi will raise his forefinger and whisper, 1:0.

And of course Brexit is also an SF/ SNP plot, even though they always opposed it. Go figure.

“SF wants a hard border.”

“We don’t, that is what we keep saying!”

“SNP wants a no-deal crash out.”

“OMG, can you even hear yourself?!”

“The EU is a Jesuit plot.”

“Oh, dear.”

“The EU is a Germanic Protestant plot against the Slavs.”

“OK, whatever.”

Which brings us to Putin.

“Obviously it was the Russian web bots what won it for Brexit. Everyone is against us, it is all a PLOT. Or rather it is many plots, all against US! And they made us think that we want it.”

“Scary. Wooooooo”

Brexit won, get over it.

And then there is the latest theory.

“Brexit is an Anglo-American plot to shift Britain more firmly into the AA orbit. That is why Trump supports it. The EU was useful during the Cold War, as a bulwark against Russia, but now it is just a redundant nuisance and a competitor. And they built gas pipelines into the EU from Russia, even though USA told them not to, strategically tying them in the long term. Putin also wants AA influence out of the EU. Putin AND Trump done it. The plebs had no idea what they were voting for or why.”

“Yep, it was Bin La den AND SF AND SNP AND Putin AND Trump what done it. Now you know. Scary.”
