      Have you seen the show? In the first scene Waton Goggins shoot a jihadist in the face.

      Boko Harum (sp) rapes women and girls. They murder three oil executives.

      And the terrorists blow up a building a Dubai.

      Whatever you’re smoking and seeing this series as a liberal wet dream, pass me some.
