Dumbest: Liberal Fashion Designers Say “Fight Islamic Terror with Chill Pills”

By Debbie Schlussel
To all of those liberal celebs, fashion designers, and other icons of pop culture who oppose the War on Terror, I say: Well, what would you do to stop Islamic terrorism?
Finally, fashion designers have come up with a sure and definite way to stop Islamic terrorists dead in their tracks, to stop Islamic clerics from exhorting their congregants to attack the rest of us, to prevent another 3,000 Americans from being murdered in a single day:
Chill pills.
Yup, that’s right, one fashionista outfitter–“Local Celebrity” (all the rage in Hollywood)–says, forget the bombs. Chill pills will do the trick. Gee, why didn’t the generals at CENTCOM think of that? Drop a chill pill on the mountains of Tora Bora, and buh-bye Al-Qaeda.

From USA Weekend:

Two stylish trends for spring: Shiny metals let you show your wealth, while war-themed clothing aims to send a message.
Anti-war fashion
Ironically, a desire for peace drives our call to arms: Many Americans reject the war in Iraq, yet some dress in combat-inspired garb. “Such attire speaks to the ugliness of our world,” says Wendy Liebmann, president of fashion consultants WSL Strategic Retail. “We’re not protesting in the streets as we did in the 1960s and ’70s, but we want to voice our opinion.”
And so we don our glum apparel: Sequin’s gold-plated bullet charm bracelet, A. Kurtz’s “Bombs Away” cotton hoodies, Marc Ecko’s Cut & Sew parachute-and-plane-strewn jackets, Nili Lotan’s machine-gun printed silk dresses, 7 for All Mankind’s pistol-draped jeans and Local Celebrity’s T-shirt with planes dropping “chill pills” on mosques. Waiting in the wings: Psycho Bunny’s cashmere scarves dotted with AK-47 rifles, which should arrive in the fall.
If this seems like overkill, blame our new, coarser culture. Just as profanity and sexuality have lost their shock value, so have signs of rebellion, says Sass Brown, assistant fashion design professor at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology. “I am expecting [images of] grenades and Uzis to appear in mass-market stores,” Brown says. “After all, who bats an eyelash at skulls and crossbones? They’ve been absorbed into the culture.”

No, idiocy has been absorbed into the culture. And, unfortunately, it’s dominating. If only there was an effective “chill pill” for that.
But there isn’t.

Terrorist chic. I had a jaw dropping moment out here on the Philadelphia Main Line maybe a month ago. Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges. Guy riding west on Lancaster Ave. on a bike with one of those checkered terrorist wraps. I know what I saw. Oh, so in the know.

Hippies are making a come back with this little ploy

Some people just aren’t ever going to get it. It baffles me, but unlike liberals who prefer to hurl insults at those who differ with their opinion I will conclude that they are either a) totally uninformed or misinformed) because they choose to spend little if any time focused on events taking place in the world around them, or b) their desire for all of us to just get along is so strong, that they are capable of deleting the constant daily reminders that radical Islam has declared war on western culture…or wait, maybe they are just trying to sell those t-shirts?
When history looks back on this time, I really wonder what role fighting an unnecessary war in Iraq will play in making so many Americans tune out the very real threat that radical Islam poses everyday. Would popular opinion of the war on terror be different today if the US was truly doing what we said we were going to do immediately following the 9/11 attack?
If GWB would have actually attempted to silence EVERY terrorist group on the planet with an all out offensive, would those who have turned against the violence in Iraq feel differently now? The combination of an unpopular war in a country who cannot bring their own people to agree on anything, with the real threat of Islamic violence spreading like hellfire across the Isreal, Europe, and this country seems to be the development of a perfect storm….time will tell.

Oh, but you’re so wrong, Deb. There IS a chill pill. It will come in the form of a few dozen dirty bombs that the Muslims detonate in our streets, in our elementary schools, and in our shopping malls. That ought to chill a few moonbats.

I think the ultimate “Chill Pill” should come in the form of several B-52’s laden with “BunkerBusters” to be dropped on strategic locations housing the Islamo-terrorist vermin. If that doesn’t get their attention, then start turning the Marine and Army sniper squads loose on them.
They’ll never see it comin’!

1shot1kill on April 24, 2007 at 12:32 pm

Wouldn’t that be chemical, or at least, Pharmacutical warfare? Or would the “chill Pill” combat global warming? I get so confused….

How about dropping missle size nuke pills on them? With that beeing done, the liberal hippie peaceniks can finally chill without having to worry about another war for the next couple of centuries.

Jew Chick on April 24, 2007 at 1:40 pm

Holy crap! There it is….the answer we’ve been waiting for! Here’s the logical prescription for this new type of defense: Mass produce these pills, load hundreds of thousands of mini-drop pods onto C-130 Cargo Planes, fly them over every liberal dominated city, and drop them there. That way, when the jihadist animals finally get here, the libs can take a pill to calm their last nerves and share them with their executioners so that they may swing their blood-soaked swords with lethal accuracy. The down-side of this is that they won’t get to count all the money they made on their stupid shirts – because they’ll be dead.

Dear Kitty, not to mention the torture of having to listen to the constant hammering on the floor. Make it stop.

John Cunningham on April 24, 2007 at 2:48 pm

I suppose if these wackos were around in WW II they would have us all sitting around with HITLER,MUSSOLINI and TOJO and hold a big love in and smoke the kooka of wacky weed kneel lotis style around a redwood tree going OOOMMM OOOMMM OOOMMM

Just as dumb as the ideas from liberal pinheads that say we can stop violence by having us exchange our guns for gift cards,roses,or stupid musical interments It will never stop crime becuase crinimals are not about to exchange their firearm they obtained in the black market for a stupid tuba
