CNN Says ISIS Is Using Nutella, Emoji And Kittens To Get Women To Join
Women of the Western world, be warned: When the terrorists of the Islamic State finally come for you, they'll be armed with mewling kittens and spoonfuls of creamy Nutella.
That is, of course, according to a Wednesday morning on-air report by CNN's Carol Costello. She claimed ISIS members had been using pop culture dialogue on social media in order to recruit westerners to a newly minted no-boys-allowed division.
ISIS is talking online about jars of Nutella, pictures of kittens and emojis. These three images are in part helping ISIS recruiters lure westerners into their fight because they want people to believe their life on the battlefield isn't so different than yours. They actually eat Nutella and I guess they have pet kittens.
With a face devoid of humor, Costello informed viewers ISIS jihadists were even relying on emoji usage to convince potential members to join. Winky face.
On that note, you have to wonder which emoji is the group's favorite. After much consideration, my bet is on either the flamenco dancing woman or painted nails.
If the fluffy, sweet recruitment tactic doesn't play out, perhaps ISIS should consider making a Tinder profile to score mad chicks.
There's no problem a few right swipes can't fix.
Just a thought.
