Kurdish TV takes the "Weird Al" approach to fighting ISIS

Just like Saturday Night Live helped destroy Sarah Palin’s political ambitions, Kurdish satellite television is trying to mock ISIS into submission.

KurdSat is bravely airing a skit parodying ISIS’s (or Islamic State’s) recruitment videos. Strumming machine guns like an air guitar or maybe an air oud, the performers sing a jaunty recruitment jingle called “We are ISIS.” Video with subtitles is below, but here are the lyrics in full:

We are bearded, filthy, and dirty.

We are brainless without nothing in our heads.

We kill the dove in the sky and bring the past to the present.

We are ISIS! We are ISIS!

We milk the goat even if it is male.

Our music is without rhythm, and our leader is called “caca.”

Our music is without rhythm, and we hate the nice smell of mint.

Our pockets are full of Qatari money, our language is bullets and cutting.

Our pockets are full of Qatari money, and peace poses a danger for us.

We are ISIS! We are ISIS!

We milk the goat even if it is male.

From Chechnya and the Hijaz, we came smelling of garlic and onion.

From Chechnya and the Hijaz, we came with a flock of geese.

We strive for jihad and sex; we are comfortable and happy to see blood.

We strive for jihad and sex; we are the sons of Al-Hajjaj and Al-Saffah

We are ISIS! We are ISIS!

We milk the goat even if it is male.

We have no knowledge in our brains; we attacked the town of Sinjar.

We have no knowledge in our brains; we scare women and children.

Our Caliph is bearded, and our brains are upside-down.

Our hope is to kill; that’s why we have no future.

We are ISIS! We are ISIS!

We milk the goat even if it is male.

Let’s see how funny Weird Al is when the objects of his mockery are famous for murdering this shit out of their critics.
