ISIS is loving Brexit, guaranteed.

I do not doubt that they hoped for it or even that these lone wolf attacks are meant to divide Europe and the US. All of it. And of course, the idiots on the right are giving them exactly what they want. It's depressing really, how easily manipulated the right is and how we on the left have to be so vigilant, continually and vigorously, in order to keep those dumbasses from fucking up in a colossal way, again and again. (see George Derrrrrrr Bush).

1. No, I think ISIS actually is against Brexit. Here's why:

ISIS recruits in Europe from disaffected young people who are unhappy, unemployed, feel discriminated against.

Brexit is a way to shake up society without joining ISIS.

Brexit is a chance to transform the EU into a better version of itself, into a society where people feel more understood, have better ways to air their grievances and are less likely to fall for extremism.


On the other hand, if Britain's new wave of Brexit-inspired right-wing-extremism keeps going, they might very well soon find home-grown muslim terrorists just as in the US.

2. No. According to Intel agencies, ISIS was FOR Brexit

 

Less unity = less coordination, leaving coordination to the mafias and .. ISIS

3. Disagree. Brexit was fear driven, among other things.

 

When a righty talks about "immigration", they mean non-white. Look at the breakdown of who voted for Brexit and why. It is across the pond teabaggers.

4. That's completely backwards from what is happening.

The racism is going way up now after Brexit. There will be lone wolf attackers. It will get worse. And it's because the divisiveness was ramped up.

5. Yep: ‘Europe Is Destroyed’: ISIS Celebrates Brexit Vote

In a shocking move that sent global markets tumbling and prompted the resignation of British Prime Minister David Cameron, Britain voted to leave the European Union Thursday. As the Brexit upheaval starts to reverberate across the globe, supporters of the Islamic State are celebrating online in forums and social media, proclaiming, “Europe is destroyed!”

“The rise of the Islamic State brought about the sinking of Britain and the collapse of the European Union,” said one supporter. Others claimed that ISIS “will profit” from the British exit, since a weaker UK won’t be able to continue supporting the Arab countries fighting the terror group. There was also taunting directed at “Rambo” David Cameron, with users sharing quotes about Cameron’s promise “to destroy the Caliphate,” and mocking him for ending up out of the EU (and a job).

At least three threads discussing the referendum were created on al-Minbar, one of the main online forums used by ISIS supporters. In one of the threads, titled “God is great, Europe is destroyed,” dozens of supporters commented, sharing updates on the results and the “collapse of the stock markets in Europe.”

Mind you, this will only perpetuate more racism, more xenophobia, and more ultra nationalist insanity. Britian is going down the wrong path.
