The 'JV Team', Obama's vacation, and the fate of activist journalism

IS, formerly known as ISIL, formerly known as ISIS -- and known by Obama as the 'JV team' -- this SCUM organization that's running amuck throughout Syria and Iraq have now beheaded an American reporter, with another likely awaiting the same fate.

"So the JV team has beheaded an American reporter, a photojournalist, actually, James Foley, beheaded on videotape. Mr. Snerdley said that he looked at it. I did not. I haven’t. I saw Daniel Pearl, the video of that. I didn’t go look at this. They’re threatening to behead yet another American journalist, the JV team. Obama called ISIS the JV team. Yeah, within the past couple of weeks or something. He found out about it on the way back to vacation on Martha’s Vineyard."
Obama finds time to return to DC when a cop shoots not-so-gentle giant Michael Brown, but heads back to finish his vacation in Martha's Vineyard after ISIS beheads 'Jim' Foley? That doesn't pass the smell test. But hey, he gave it five minutes of his time. Isn't that asking enough of Dear Leader, America?

WXYZ: Obama spoke Wednesday from Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, where he's vacationing with his family, a day after the militants released a video showing the American journalist being beheaded.
Off to the links! Little in the way of ignoring Obama's callousness. But well beyond that, there's absolutely no doubt that this terrorist group's actions are pure evil with the torture and killing of innocent men, women and children...and now an American photojournalist. I just can't help but also question the motives of "a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists," as Daniel Greenfield refers to in a FrontPageMag piece. Those who go looking to get on the right side of the wrong people, perhaps expecting some profound truth through all the violence, aiming at an agenda and after the big scoop. But in a lethal mixture somewhere between invincibility and foolishness, what's received instead is the horrific outcome that came to pass.

Word of advice to activist journalists: You can't side with Islamists...these equal-opportunity killers murder their own even more frequently than other religions!
