Why You Should Watch the Gruesome James Foley Beheading Video

By Lex August 19, 2014 @ 6:30 PM


We can’t easily fix the fact that there are a few million Islamic Fundamentalists who believe slaughtering innocent men, women, children, and probably beloved house pets brings them closer to their god. They’re in the business of subjugation and genocide, which is hard to root for in the world of the sane, though in the Middle East and parts of Paris and London, it plays fairly well. The Islamic Caliphate is never actually coming back. These blood-thirsty primitives are never going to actually get what they want. The United States could turn the entire historical Caliphate into a radioactive moonscape of ashen skulls within half an hour. Technology has changed since the Middle Ages. This leaves only the sociopathic human cleansing in the name of Allah. That could go on for centuries.

I believe it’s worth the shock value of seeing an ISIS jihadist with a decidedly British accent slice off the head of an innocent photo journalist. Barbarism isn’t something that fully translates to the completely oral tradition. The act of viewing forces your mind to wrestle with the horror. The unpleasant sensation informs your view of the world. You will almost certainly never experience what photojournalist James Foley and his loved ones did today, but you can watch the unfolding madness and make it some little permanent part of you.

If you choose, you can see the video HERE. I’m not putting it on this site because I don’t want the corporate overlords running kitty litter commercials against it. Yes, it’s gruesome. No, I don’t think it’s disrespectful to his family to become more informed by way of his death. That may be one of Mr. Foley’s precious leave behinds.

(And, yes, this is sitting above a bikini picture. Maybe that’s appropriate considering how badly these twisted mofos hate women baring skin, or just women in general.)

    Did someone one this site really green-light this? Did this site just CLAIM to have respect and decency to post this and then have the fucking audacity to beat around “corporate overlords” by providing a fucking link a few clicks away to this video? You ought to all be ashamed of yourselves. Way to sink lower than low. Scum.

    I clicked the link and then closed it immediately. The whole thing is barbaric to the extreme. It isn’t right to watch it. This man deserves more respect. :-(

    The video doesn’t show the actual beheading, if that matters. You get to see what might be the initial cut but no blood, then it fades out and shows the body/severed head pose.

    Not much different than watching thousands die every September over and over again with the 9/11 memorials that get churned out on a dozen channels.

    Wow it’s almost like someone is trying inform you on something important and horrific happening around the world and not just celeb gossip. How dare he. Yes he is “lower than low” and “scum” for showing celeb junkies like you a taste of real life in another part of the world. I’m glad you call the one who linked it scum and not the man actually doing the atrocity. If only we had more brave people like you I know America would be a better place. Whenever you see something unjust just close your eyes and tell everyone not to look! It’s like it never happened then! Keep it up.

    You’re a coward. You’re a coward in so many ways. I know this site is mainly for Entertainment but another human being is being slaughtered and you don’t have the stomach to find out why? You can’t brave seeing another human being’s final moments and what he endured at the hands of people who want to kill every non-Muslim they find? I know this isn’t about Kim and Kanye so you probably don’t care. But knowing there are so many cowardly thin skinned people in the world makes me me sick. Hide under the bed your whole life.

    If you think this website is the place to post a video of someone being beheaded is okay. Then people need to wake up and know how the internet works. Lately this website has become lazy and terrible information. Just a terrible decision to show something they typically don’t report! No class

    Was a site called “What would Tyler Durden do?” initially thought out to post about celebrity gossip? Because I don’t think THAT’s what Tyler Durden would do.

    Hey, let’s all watch the video and give the terrorists EXACTLY what they want. Great idea Lex. As awesome as it would be to just wipe all those assholes off the face of the planet, we can’t, and the more we fight them and the more coverage from the media they receive the more we contribute to their cause and allow them to brainwash more weak minded losers to join them.

    Don’t watch this video people, not just because it’s horrific, but because it’s not worth your time to listen to their pathetic jihadist message.

    or watch it on mute. These videos as pathetically barbaric even for these cave dwellers are serve a purpose for those that act like this type of stuff isn’t really happening.

    It’s all made up!!! – as you walk down into your parents basement to listen to jesse ventura’s podcast.

    I’m not sure why I choose to watch the video. Maybe its just the curiosity of what he’s feeling and living vicariously through the unfortunate state. I can tell you I get a nervous feeling in my stomach seconds before the actual act. I don’t believe I’m being disrespectful to James by watching or giving terrorists what they want. This is something real and its out there whether you choose to believe or ignore it. You don’t have to watch or visit the website, WWTDD owes you no promises of the content it chooses to post.

    That was far more enjoyable than the Nicki Minaj video.

    There’s videos of Russian soldiers being decapitated by Chechen militants all over the net. They’re way more graphic than this one. Why didn’t anyone raise any objections back then??? What, you were too happy gobblin’ down hamburgers and washing them down with Coke? Well, have a little sympathy and watch one of them now:


    Hope you’re not squeamish…

    Thank you for posting this. It just goes to show that it doesn’t matter if our President is a Republican or a Democrat, these animals do not value human life and use the fact that we do against us.
