Not only that, but it's recently come to my attention that our children are being taught some freaky Muslim perversion of mathematics called"Algebra".

And in those godless schools they're teaching algorithms. And I say, all alcohol should be banned, as well as chemistry!

That term was being used in Arizona back in 1976 when I was in Phoenix. What's the problem with it?

“How do they think our soldiers feel coming back to Arizona and hearing some Middle Eastern term?”

I wonder how soldiers from this part of Arizona feel about coming home and hearing the name of their town:

It's an ARABIC WORD!!!! Just think how our soldiers (who apparently are fighting against the Arabic language), will feel, coming home and hearing an ARABIC WORD on TV!!!!

Oh, for God's sake. A kid I used to teach had a dad who was career Army Intelligence. He taught all the kids in class a little Arabic, just a few fun words. The idea that soldiers are fainting goats who will pass out cold if they get back from Iraq and hear someone say 'haboob' on TV is ridiculous.

I will now go and get a sandwich with liberty cabbage on it, and try to get over this.

I remember hearing about how the country banned all German names and words in the states after world war II for the same reason. I think this persons anger is completely justified.

re: #11 SanFranciscoZionist

We are the biggest bunch of morons when we want to be.

Once the United States entered the war, a search for spies and saboteurs escalated into efforts to suppress German culture. Many German-language newspapers were closed down. Public schools stopped teaching German. Lutheran churches dropped services that were spoken in German.

Germans were called "Huns." In the name of patriotism, musicians no longer played Bach and Beethoven, and schools stopped teaching the German language. Americans renamed sauerkraut "liberty cabbage"; dachshunds "liberty hounds"; and German measles "liberty measles." Cincinnati, with its large German American population, even removed pretzels from the free lunch counters in saloons. More alarming, vigilante groups attacked anyone suspected of being unpatriotic. Workers who refused to buy war bonds often suffered harsh retribution, and attacks on labor protesters were nothing short of brutal. The legal system backed the suppression. Juries routinely released defendants accused of violence against individuals or groups critical of the war.

A St. Louis newspaper campaigned to "wipe out everything German in this city," even though St. Louis had a large German American population. Luxembourg, Missouri became Lemay; Berlin Avenue was renamed Pershing; Bismark Street became Fourth Street; Kaiser Street was changed to Gresham.

Perhaps the most horrendous anti-German act was the lynching in April 1918 of 29-year-old Robert Paul Prager, a German-born bakery employee, who was accused of making "disloyal utterances." A mob took him from the basement of the Collinsville, Illinois jail, dragged him outside of town, and hanged him from a tree. Before the lynching, he was allowed to write a last note to his parents in Dresden, Germany:

Dear Parents: I must on this, the 4th day of April, 1918, die. Please pray for me, my dear parents.

In the trial that followed, the defendants wore red, white, and blue ribbons, while a band in the court house played patriotic songs. It took the jury 25 minutes to return a not-guilty verdict. The German government lodged a protest and offered to pay Prager's funeral expenses.

re: #13 negativ

> sauerkraut "liberty cabbage"; dachshunds "liberty hounds"

So that's where the vomit-inducing "liberty fries" originate. Times change, morons stay the same.

The NYT reports:

“I am insulted that local TV news crews are now calling this kind of storm a haboob,” Don Yonts, a resident of Gilbert, Ariz., wrote the Arizona Republic after a particularly fierce, mile-high dust storm swept through the state on July 5. “How do they think our soldiers feel coming back to Arizona and hearing some Middle Eastern term realizing I'm their next door neighbor?"

I would like to meet this Don person, and then have a conversation with him in which I use every single one of those Arabic words on that list.
