Fearless Prediction

I hereby wager a shiny new quarter that this episode is one of two things:

  1. A harried, part-time employee in a busy, loud store, hearing someone talking, very possibly with an accent of one kind or another, hearing “Isis” when someone, possibly with a mask on, said “Aishah”.
  2. A hoax, exactly as spelled out in Berg’s 20th Law.

Any action on that bet?

  1. Literally a coin toss. I go with the first one. Noose hoaxes are more the rage nowadays. Although I suppose facial burns from overly hot coffee are a possibility.

  2. In order to come to a considered conclusion on the case before us, it is necessary to don one’s rainbow wig, red nose and floppy shoes. I am traveling this week and didn’t bring the necessary…perhaps we can task E. Dimwit Esq. to share some insights, since we know that is his everyday attire.

  3. Starting the day in moderation has become something of a tradition here at SITD.

    Like the topic at hand, there is no rhyme or reason, one must just go with it.

  4. Although I suppose facial burns from overly hot coffee are a possibility.

    Speaking of facial burns doc, there was a story, a day or so ago, about a young mulatto girl claiming several huwhite men accosted her, and set her on fire. (There was no word on whether the attackers claimed she was trespassing in MAGA country)

    She says she happened to be driving past a violent protest, but claims she was not a participant. A picture accompanied the story, and the girl did indeed have what looked to me to be 2nd degree burns on her face and neck.

    Oddly enough, the ATF has released a request for information on a person of interest in the arson of a building during that very protest. They posted a picture of someone, sex and race undetermined, squirting charcoal lighter liquid from a squeeze bottle, directly above and over his/her head.

    Some observers have opined squirting flammable liquid into a fire over one’s head might easily result in a regrettable terrorist flambé. No word from Bubba Smollet, or Drumpf as of this writing.

  5. My first thought was hoax. I figure the customer intentionally said name to sound like Isis just to get attention.

  6. Yes, I’m aware of the unfortunate girl in Madison, whose family has now asked for quiet in order to heal, meaning your explanation is 100% correct. The story will be buried deeper than Jimmy Hoffa.

  7. On the one hand, you have a group of organized neo-nazis called “antifa,” the children of the elite, who endorse and organize violence against their political opponents.
    On the other hand, you have some harried working person who unwittingly writes down the name he or she heard as “Isis” on a disposable drink cup.
    Guess whose head will roll?

  8. Yes, Swiftee, that the girl who claimed to have been burned by white racists. She told the cops that she was driving home after the protest, and when she stopped at a light, a group of white men squirted lighter fluid through the open window of her car and then used some kind of torch to light her up, after which she drove home, and said nothing until her mother asked her why her face was all burny-looking.
    Lies like this, printed verbatim by the newspaper, feeds a lot of the racial hatred of blacks towards whites.

  9. Another one bites the dust:

    Police investigating racist messages left on a Texas A&M student’s car in June say all available evidence points to it being a hoax. School officials offered a $1,200 reward on June 25 for any evidence that identified the person who wrote “All lives matter, “You don’t belong here,” and “n—r” messages before leaving them on senior Isaih Martin’s windshield. A College Station cop who watched surveillance footage from a nearby pool camera say that what they witnessed implicated Mr. Martin himself as the culprit.
