Twitter users wonder if maybe he meant…something else?

Top members of Ahrar al-Sham reported killed in suicide attack

http://twitter.com/#!/hxhassan/status/509397308002164736

The leader and top commanders of Syrian Islamist insurgents Ahrar al-Sham have been killed in a suicide attack Tuesday. The BBC reports:

Hassan Abboud, the leader of the Syrian Islamist insurgents Ahrar al-Sham has been killed with other top commanders in a bomb blast at a meeting.

Activists say a suicide bomber detonated a vest in the attack in the north-western town of Ram Hamdan.

Ahrar al-Sham is part of the Islamic Front, a coalition of seven Islamist rebel groups.

In February, Ahrar al-Sham blamed the rival Islamic State group for an attack which killed several of its members.

Ahrar al-Sham is one of the biggest rebel groups fighting the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Although the group is hard-line Islamist in orientation, it has opposed and clashed with the ultra-radical Islamic State (IS) group, which is the most likely quarter to be blamed for the attack, reports the BBC’s Jim Muir.

NC NAACP tells voter ID protesters to bring photo ID to Moral March [pics]

http://twitter.com/#!/TBradleyNC/status/432153614187249664

Wait … what?

http://twitter.com/#!/TBradleyNC/status/432168257374920704

First, some background:

Leftist activists, including members of North Carolina NAACP, are in Raleigh, North Carolina, today for the so-called Moral March. Their mission? To screech about everything from abortion restrictions to fast-food wages.

North Carolina blogger extraordinaire Sister Toldjah has a must-read Moral March primer on the Moral Monday movement and its hateful organizers.

As bused-in protesters and professional agitators prepared to promote their progressive causes — including oh-so-racist voter ID requirements — the state NAACP told participants make sure to have photo ID handy “at all times.” According to the “Important Dos and Don’ts for Marchers!!!” you should bring a “driver’s license, passport or other valid photo id” to the march.

This tweet says it all:

No, no. That’s too logical. Plus, racism!

http://twitter.com/#!/dad_of_jacob/status/432190417740640257

NC is staging a #MoralMarch against voter ID laws they deem to be racist.

You are expected to bring ID.
