Skip to comments.Carly Fiorina Says Degree In Medieval History Will Help Her Defeat Isis

For over three decades, Carly Fiorina's bachelor's degree from Stanford University in medieval history and philosophy has had little real-world application.
But as she mounts a presidential bid, the Republican candidate says her degree is finally of use as she considers how she would deal with ISIS as commander-in-chief.
"Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy," Fiorina said Sunday night, "because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally."
Fiorina was responding to a question from a member of the military at a town hall in Windham, New Hampshire, who wanted to know how she could assure him that she would be serious in taking on the Islamic extremist group.
She said that ISIS is "an evil that must be defeated" and explained how she would work with allies in the Middle East who have asked for specific resources and assistance to fight the extremist group, citing the example of Turkey, which has asked for help in establishing a no-fly zone along its shared border with Syria. Fiorina said she would work with Turkey in establishing such a no-fly zone.

That she has a degree in Medieval History makes it even more appalling that she has uttered such ignorant comments about Islam and its long-time cultural superiority.
Please, I just wish she’d go away.
It would be foolish to put me in charge of this sort of thing.
What a jerk Carly is.
Hey, Carly. Wanna see how to beat ISIS?
Her presence is stealing time from legit candidates.
Besides, what’s this about a degree. Thought you were a lowly secretary who worked her way up due to brilliance.
She’s gonna go all Charles Martel on them?
Fire up that Christian-nationalist spirit?
Fiorina sings the praises of Islam, Ottoman Empire ‘greatest civilization’
You’re kidding. If she really believes that, she should drop out of the race...too few neurons firing.
She has studied medieval History and she thinks Turkey is our friend?
Well, Snarly proved that she had the skills of a medieval barbarian as she destroyed Lucent and damn near destroyed Hewlett-Packard.
I find it amazing that a tech firms hire people with no obvious tech or business background. I worked for a company back in the 80’s that had a woman with a Masters in English Lit as our VP of Software Development. Needless to say we did not do much and most good devs left quickly.
And if she doesn’t really believe that, she should drop out of the race—too dhimmi an attitude for 21st century political leadership.
Seems like she’s more interested in starting WW3 with the Russians.
Would watching , Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) count ?
Douse them with Greek fire.
I have a sure-fire way for Carly to defeat ISIS -
Simply make them into a corporation (ISIS, Inc.), make Carly the CEO, and...viola!
No more ISIS.
I have a degree in English Lit. I'm going to correct Shakespeare's sonnets.
Carly can see the Battle of Tours from her window!
