Justin Bieber Used as a Pawn by ISIS. No, Really!

The thugs in ISIS/ISIL/Da’esh run a pretty sophisticated online division. Not only do they produce glizty and horrific execution videos, they also crank out a ton of recruitment propaganda. And they’re getting even sneakier.

Their latest tactic has been to use Justin Bieber’s Twitter hashtag to reach impressionable (and many recruitable) teens. And with 74 million followers, it’s possible that these terrorists are able to send their poisonous filth to tens of millions of people.

What kind of poisonous filth? Following the links led to a post entitled “Message to Islamic West,” a 15-minute video with some pretty horrific images.

Assholes. Can we get Anonymous on the case?
