That's the joke.

/Well, All Right, I can do some Blind Faith puns for you.  I Had To Cry Today when I read about this.  One of the refugees was quoted as saying, "I Can't Find My Way Home.  I hope the Presence Of The Lord keeps me from Sleeping In The Ground."  Do What You Like, this ain't no Sea Of Joy.

Not to be a buzzkill, but these guys have taken up the elimination of education as a cause worth killing for.   It's ignorance in its most violent, retrograde, ignorant form.   fark these guys.

"From a security point of view, camps are often difficult to handle ... I think it was for that reason that the Niger government didn't want camps for the Nigerians. They must believe that they can better control a dispersed refugee population than one concentrated in a camp," he added.

What's wrong with concentration camps?

When they get there, if they see a guy who claims to be a prince and needs $200 to get his inheritance, could they paddle his ass for me?

Their name literally translates to "Education is bad."  That's about all you need to know.  Oh, that and that they're murderous psychopaths.  That's pretty much it.

And, and don't be fulled by the oft-given translation "Western Education is bad."  This isn't in any sense East versus West.  It's "fundamentalist-to-the-point-of-torture-and-murder Islam" versus "everything else on the planet."  These guys aren't big fans of Taoist philosophy or Confucianism, either.

Until you're willing to admit that Christianity was as bad once, you have nothing to contribute to the conversation except entertainment value --- which is considerable, so don't let anything I say stop you.

I have to confess, the highlight of any trip to Fark is to see someone publicly humiliate themselves.  Thank you for making my day.
