The Struggle Is Real: ISIS Fighters Can’t Find Jobs After Returning From Battle
You know how you scrub your Facebook clean of incriminating photos before you go on a job interview? Like that photo of you doing a naked keg stand at your nana’s 93rd birthday? Or that video of you firing off an M-80 from your bum? Well, at least you can delete those embarrassing photos from your social media accounts. Poor ISIS fighters have photos of them viciously attempting to advance Islamic State’s Caliphate with diabolical methods out there in cyberspace and they can’t erase them from the internet. And these incriminating images are causing Daesh fighters to miss out on jobs.
The Swedish news site Expressen interviewed 150 terrorists who have moved back to Sweden after fighting for ISIS. Many of which are said to have changed their legal names to be able to be accepted into Swedish society.
“I just want to forget everything,” a 27-year-old man formerly known as Walad Yousef told Expressen. “I apply for a lot of jobs, but I can’t get any because my pictures are out there.” Apparently, “Throwing gay men off of the top of buildings” is not a skill that is well sought after by employers in Sweden. The LinkedIn of these gentlemen must be intriguing. Could you imagine being asked by a fellow colleague, “Hey, do you think you could do me a solid and endorse me in the skill of “Submerging Infidels In A Pool.”
I’m sure everyone can empathize with this gentleman. Who hasn’t had the issue of acing a job interview only to have your potential employer check your Myspace and see photos of you motorboating a female and doing a body shot off her glistening body or in his case making Yazidi woman ISIS sex slaves and then forcing them to eat the flesh of their own?
Could you imagine the interview with a former ISIS fighter and a potential employer? “I see here you worked for the ISIS organization for the past two years, what would you say you did there?” “Well, funny you ask, I was head of beheadings, which was pretty ironic if you ask me. Lot’s of ‘You lost your head’ jokes flying around.”
In many countries in Europe, supporting a terror group is not considered a crime as long as the person is not directly involved in criminal activities.
