Louis C.K. Does Not Like ISIS

From The Atlantic today:

In the newest issue of Dabiq, the English-language magazine published by ISIS, the extremist group for the first time confirmed and justified the capturing, enslaving and selling of Yazidi women and children.

“The Islamic State’s litany of horrific crimes against the Yezidis in Iraq only keeps growing,” said Fred Abrahams, special adviser at Human Rights Watch. “We heard shocking stories of forced religious conversions, forced marriage, and even sexual assault and slavery—and some of the victims were children.”

In the article, “The Revival of Slavery Before the Hour,” the magazine stated that “the enslaved Yazidi families are now sold by the Islamic State soldiers,” adding that, “the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Shariah amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated in the Sinjar operations.”

Referring to the Yazidis as “pagans” and “infidels,” the article said, “Their creed is so deviant from the truth that even cross-worshipping Christians for ages considered them devil worshippers and Satanists, as is recorded in accounts of Westerners and Orientalists who encountered them or studied them.”

ISIS is also boasting about what they see as the revival of important institutions, such as slavery. “Before Shaytan reveals his doubts to the weak-minded and weak hearted, one would remember that enslaving the families of the [infidels] and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of Shariah that if one were to deny or mock, he would be denying or mocking the verses of the Quran and the narrations of the Prophet, and thereby apostatizing from Islam,” the article says. “… May Allah bless this Islamic State with the revival of further aspects of the religion occurring at its hands.”

That may have something to do with why Louis C.K. went on this Twitter rant (courtesy of Pajiba):

Oh, fuck you, ISIS. Sincerely please fuck each other in the mouth with forks. You’re 7 year old boys. You’re stupid. You suck.

He may have a point. But he’s been a bit weird on Twitter lately. This series from a few days earlier (again via Pajiba)

It really feels like Mars used to be a here that got globally warmed by some very us-y people-things.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

I’m not saying I can prove it. I’m saying it feels like it.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

It feels like they left mars on a moon that they pushed out of orbit and rode over here to try to orbit what was earth

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

That’s the only way you could move billions of people-y types. But their moon crashed into pre-earth and everyone died.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

What was left turned into here and our moon and got seeded by marsian corpse DNA. And later we’ll use our moon to go back.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

That’s what it feels like anyway.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

And it feels like we are gonna keep bopping around on moons til we realize the whole solar system is actually a spaceship.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

The sun is the engine and if you wait til it all lines up just right and you push “go” you can ride it to a bigger far place.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

I would really like to emphasize that these are not opinions or theories. It’s just a feeling I have.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

Also I feel like I know the origin of the basic despair that we all feel in the pit of our being, that one thing we all share.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

We used to be one single thing that was nowhere. The Big Bang happened, sending us, which used to be a “me” hurtling outward.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

And that basic sad despair inside is us going “aaaaaaaaaaaaah!!” Through space. We’re like on the 20’th “a”

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

If you go “aaaaa!” For a jiblion years you stop even hearing yourself say it. Anyway that’s just how it feels sometimes.

— Louis C.K. (@louisck) October 8, 2014

I’m not high.
