Liberal Filmmaker Says Hugs Can Defeat ISIS, So the Internet Crowdfunded Him a Plane Ticket

Liberal filmmaker Josh Fox went on a Twitter rant last week after president Trump dropped the “Mother Of All Bombs” on ISIS in Afghanistan.

Fox said we should fight ISIS with “love,” and many have challenged Fox to back up his words.


“Atrocity. Murder. Abomination. When will we learn that only love stops hate, and bombings only create more ISIS,” Fox wrote in a tweet.

“Love your enemy. Don’t create more of them. Teachers, diplomacy, culture and aid helps peace. Bombs don’t,” he added.

After Fox’s bold words, a crowd-funding campaign was started to create enough money for Fox to buy a plane ticket to Afghanistan to test his theory.

As reported by Fox News Insider:

The campaign, which was organized by filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, will pay for Fox’s airfare to Afghanistan, two nights in a hotel and a dozen roses, so Fox can “show ISIS how much he really loves them.”

“It’s time for Josh Fox to put his hugging arms where his mouth is. Please help us raise $2,500 to send Fox to Afghanistan to hug it out with ISIS,” the campaign website says.

It also says that if Fox proves to be a “hypocritical coward” and refuses to go, all the funds raised will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

As of Thursday afternoon, more than $3,024 has been raised.

In the larger scheme of things, it should be stated that this article is not promoting violence or seeking for Josh Fox to “learn a lesson” that leads to harm.

ISIS is a barbaric terrorist organization and anyone attempting to have a “hug tour” with them should understand how incompetent it would be to attempt this stunt.
