Republicans are such jokey jokesters. South Dakota state Rep. Betty Olson penned a column for the Rapid City Journal in which she spoke of the weather then went on to sports. From there, Olson, who spearheaded the legislative effort to arm South Dakota teachers, spoke of the beheaded journalist, Steve Sotlotff, by the hands of Islamic State militants.

[su_center_ad] TPM notes that after Olson expressed grief for the murdered journalist, she concluded with the following, which was circulated on conservative message boards.

Via Rapid City Journal:

This morning ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood warned the United States that if the United States continued meddling in Iraq, Libya, and other potential hot spots in the Middle East, they intend to cut off America’s supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers.
If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T and AOL customer service reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more presidents either.

It’s gonna get ugly, people.

Too late. She already got ugly. Considering the ‘Obama pals around with terrorists’ rhetoric that comes from the right, this is not funny at all. What’s happening with ISIL is nothing to joke about.

      remember in 2012 when very few thought well of Romney, but after his sprayed on Latino brown tan opted to go with him?

      I suppose that’s what they mean by ‘NO FEAR’?

    Hyuck Hyuck Hyuck! Oh that’s a real knee-slapper, Bets. What a snese of humor, huh?Hey Bets, best you stick to commentary without the lame attempts at sardonic irony. Your racist Freudian slip is showing a bit too much.

    Aliens from the planet moronia have infiltrated our government at all levels and one of their top commanders has been exposed masquerading as a state representative.

  10. rg9rts October 7th, 2014 at 8:58 am

    Why is it the gopee thinks that comments bordering on insult are just hilarious?

    I guess she didn’t get the memo that ISIS is actually Black Water and Halliburton contractors that got left behind when we left…they are still sucking Cheney and still doing his bidding. That is why they are wearing masks and hoods…CIA involvement is so obvious. Did you see all of the brand new Toyota trucks they were driving…hundreds of them…Halliburton and CIA all over that picture.
