Scott Walker's ISIS Gaffe Causes Explosion of Mocking Images

Yesterday, when asked about ISIS, presidential hopeful and current Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said that his response to the peaceful labor protests in Madison in 2011 prepared him to stamp out international terrorism. Apparently that means that in case of a terrorist attack he would sneak in and out of the White House via a not-so-secret rat tunnel and consult on the phone with bloggers pretending to be billionaire David Koch.


Even the National Review called his response "awful."

Asked about ISIS, Walker responded, “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the globe.”

That is a terrible response. First, taking on a bunch of protesters is not comparably difficult to taking on a Caliphate with sympathizers and terrorists around the globe, and saying so suggests Walker doesn’t quite understand the complexity of the challenge from ISIS and its allied groups.

Naturally, the "terrorists" in Wisconsin have unleashed a counterattack - in the form of a super-satirical barrage of photo memes.

One citizen suggested spreading this image in case ISIS comes looking for revenge:

Here are some more. Feel free to post any additional memes in the comments.
That is one terrifying smile:
The Red Scare!!!
Be sure to check her Birkenstocks for incendiary devices...
It only took 6 burly cops to arrest this man for holding a sign. What courage. What bravery! And they arrested him right next to the copy of the Wisconsin Constitution that states in Article 1 that the right of the citizens to petition the government "shall never be abridged." Oh well.
You know they start those terrorists really young...
Look out behind you, Granny!
Leaving so soon?
One more. I feel so much safer now...
ENCORE! You asked for more, so here you go. Here is an obvious pinko terrorist...
You can spot the home-grown terrorists right away...
As my friend Ed says, the war on Christmas terrorism. Are those ISIS-cicles on the tree?
Finally, let us not forget the Capitol Police version of "If I Had a Hammer", which starts and ends with "If I Had a Hammer, I'd Hammer on the Black Guy..."
