Doofus Of The Day #873

One might say this report achieves the very Nirvana of Doofidity.

An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger.

James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children.

“It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world sing and pray for peace at the same time. “When people come together and focus on something in a positive way … there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”

. . .

Twyman said he will be joined by a large group of Jewish, Muslim and Christian leaders.

“Each one will lead the group in prayer from their religion,” he said. “It’s going to be pretty powerful.”

. . .

Twyman believes he must go, despite the dangers.

“I’m no sort of hero, but I do believe in the power of this.”

There’s more at the link.

I expect Mr. Twyman will probably very shortly be too dead to realize that “the power of this” . . . isn’t.



  1. If (when) this moron gets into trouble, please let us not waste any American lives, treasure or prestige to pull his silly ass out of it.

  2. Except when he gets in a jam over there, we'll undoubtedly spend buckets of taxpayer money to help him get free.

  3. Son, that is not what your pa meant when he said he hoped you got ahead in the music industry.

    All joking aside, I wish him the best, but…. yeah….

  4. So. Correct me if I am wrong, but does not walking into a war zone cancel your life insurance policy? Here's hoping he does not have family. And does the States have that 'toss into the psych for assessment, without consent' rule?

  5. *sigh* As much as I love Oregon, I really need to talk my husband into moving somewhere with fewer of these idiots.
