CNN International Reporter Breathlessly Reports On 'ISIS Flag' At Gay Pride Parade

Obviously she didn't recognize the sex toys for what they were.

I'll allow that ISIS might be full of dicks, but I'm pretty sure they don't put them on their flag.


This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen so far this year, as CNN International reporter Lucy Pawle gravely reports on an “ISIS Flag” she discovered today at the London Gay Pride Parade, and then a panel including terrorism expert Peter Bergen spend several minutes soberly analyzing the flag and what it means.

Could it be a signal to attack? Why didn’t someone try to find the person carrying it? Should we be CONCERNED? What could it MEAN!?

And none of them notice that the symbols on the flag are … butt plugs and dildos and other sex toys.

Ah, denial is strong with this one.

But oops, someone got a screenshot of the actual report with her name on it.

Can you help us out?
