Talk radio host Dana Loesch, who also hosts a weekly TV show on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network, has come up with an epic response to the White House’s position that jobs will help curtail 7th century Islamic barbarians from killing in the name of Allah.
The video, “Jobs for Jihadis,” is a play on State Department spokesperson Marie Harf’s comment on Monday that “we cannot kill our way” out of the war against Islamic state militants.
Harf went on to say: “We need, in the longer term, medium and longer term, to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs.”
In the video, Loesch mans a table for the State Department at a job fair and is eager to help people from the Middle East who have been “inaccurately described as terrorists.”
“I think you will agree with me that when you can’t find a job you just feel like killing somebody, am I right?” she asked one jihadist.
But she has a little trouble matching applicant’s job skills with actual jobs, as you can see here:
As the spoof began to make the rounds, social media users were quick to offer their own take. Here’s a sampling, as seen on Twitter:
@DLoesch Great piece: “Jobs For Jihadis”. Sure hope you left the “State Dept.” with your head intact! The bozos in DC haven’t got a clue!
