This is my last post as The Amish Jihadist. While it’s been fun, and the lovely people at The Other Journal are wickedly awesome (thanks, guys!), it’s never made a lot of sense to me as to why The Amish Jihadist should have an online presence.

So, that’s where he’ll be. Outside. Immersed.

I think we’ll all be better off for it.
