Los Angeles, CA — With only a handful of reporters present at the Los Angeles International Airport, Dennis Rodman announced his intentions to leave the United States to speak with leaders of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
“I know a lot of people won’t understand what I’m doing, but it’s my decision,” Rodman told reporters. “I think if I could just talk with the leaders of ISIS they would see the errors of their ways.”
“I wish him the best of luck,” Rodman’s agent, Paul Horner, told reporters. “Dennis is a wordsmith, a really likeable guy. I think ISIS will listen to what the man has to say and hopefully change for the better.”
Rodman told reporters he is not joining ISIS, or fighting along side them, but is only there to talk with their top leaders.
“I’ve been following ISIS for months now. There’s a lot of things they are doing that just ain’t cool. I’ll tell them what I think and maybe they’ll change their methods,” Rodman said. “I think my basketball skills will help a lot too, boxing people out of the paint at times when it counts, like the 4th quarter. I was thinking about getting a sweet ISIS tattoo to let them know that I mean business.”
73-year-old Caitlin Dewey, an avid Fox News viewer told reporters she is confused by Rodman’s actions.
“I don’t know what he thinks he’s going to accomplish over there. He might as well be a pug trainer, no one is going to listen to him,” Dewey said. “The Washington Post calls ISIS a radical group of Muslim extremists, but that’s a load of malarkey. Personally I think they are a bunch of dirty hippies. They need to take a shower and stop injecting the pot is what they need to do.”
Jack Phillips, a journalist at The Epoch Times, a satire news website, said Rodman’s antics are hard to believe.
“Rodman is a caricature of himself. It’s like real life imitating a satire piece that I would write.”
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, is an unrecognized state and a Sunni jihadist group in the Middle East, active in Iraq and Syria. It has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia, and has been described by the United Nations and Western and Middle Eastern media as a terrorist group. The United Nations and Amnesty International have accused the group of numerous human rights violations.
Last month ISIS beheaded U.S. journalist James Foley who attempted to “talk” with the militant group. Rodman made headlines early in the year, when he traveled to North Korea to play basketball and meet with leader, Kim Jong-un. After the trip Rodman told fans, ‘If you don’t want me to go back there ever again, I won’t go back’.
