For the can’t make this up file, here’s Twitchy regular Joyce Carol Oates with today’s (really, really stupid) question of the day:
All we hear of ISIS is puritanical & punitive; is there nothing celebratory & joyous? Or is query naive?

Maybe she can travel to Syria and ask an ISIS member herself? One of the men, we mean, because they always seem happy. Must be the sex slaves:
.@JoyceCarolOates I suspect that you have the funds to visit Raqqa and come to your own conclusions.
I suspect you'll come out a head.

Well, some of the men are happy, if that’s what you mean. https://t.co/YaauztxlG5

And the ISIS executioners look like they enjoy their work, although they usually have masks on and we can’t see if they’re smiling or not:
Ask the people they have beheaded and gays they have killed https://t.co/3X0qvKb8Q6

They're really happy when they kill Christians, women, gay people, and infidels.
Does this answer your question? https://t.co/c34cYlwcey

They feel celebratory & joyous when they behead a hostage, kill a confessed Christian or slay concertgoers, so yes. https://t.co/PDiTswYSlH

Or maybe we should just mock her, repeatedly:
For once, I'm speechless. https://t.co/BIJiAjdYi3

Flashback. Oates fell for an old meme back in June lamenting the death of a Triceratops at the hands of Steven Spielberg:
So barbaric that this should still be allowed… No conservation laws in effect wherever this is? https://t.co/hgavm9IBaM

And somehow this ISIS tweet of hers is even dumber.
