Well a lot of people called it "Russia" because it was basically Russia pulling the strings of a lot of puppet states

Were there people who refused to say "USSR", because it wasn't really socialist? What about the Christian Coalition?
It's not really a proper name though, because they are not a state. States need recognition from neighbors/the international community and other legalistic fluff. Not to mention, if they were an actual state, we could easily use the collective force of the West to bomb them into oblivion. On what justification? Well, their "state" has committed nearly every crime against humanity in the book.

Basically, I think we should recognize them on monday and obliterate them on tuesday.

Yeah, like how all history books call Nazis "those kraut shitheads".
'Nazi' apparently was actually a somewhat insulting nickname, not what they called themselves.

quote:

The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c. 1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi, Naczi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, German form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean "a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person." Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in World War I Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary.

An older use of Nazi for national-sozial is attested in German from 1903, but EWdS does not think it contributed to the word as applied to Hitler and his followers. The NSDAP for a time attempted to adopt the Nazi designation as what the Germans call a "despite-word," but they gave this up, and the NSDAP is said to have generally avoided the term. Before 1930, party members had been called in English National Socialists, which dates from 1923. The use of Nazi Germany, Nazi regime, etc., was popularized by German exiles abroad. From them, it spread into other languages, and eventually was brought back to Germany, after the war.

And like all bombers protesting America's opposition to equal human rights for gay people, the bomber planted an IED in a gay neighborhood so that gay people could hopefully be maimed or killed and finally wake up to the danger of being gay in a country that is thick with violent intent toward gays.

Of course it is. That neighborhood is no more associated with LGBT than any of a hundred others.

The bomb was planted outside an Institute for the Blind where there's been construction going on for like the past eight months. If it was positioned to kill anybody it was those sad folks who walk up and down that block tapping white canes

ISIS: The best choice, the mainstream choice, the most workable choice. The first name popularized in the US, based off of a sloppy-but-not-horrible translation of their name at the time. Inflicted collateral damage on Archer, a prog metal band, and some e-payment service. It's also good to poo poo on ISIS's name change.

Also a Danish brand name for low-sugar products. They're now called EASIS.

Islamic State is the best choice. And yuuuup on the "oh we don't want to give them legitimacy part." Because ultimately it doesn't really matter what we think that will determine the Islamic State's outcome but the Hellfire missiles and guided bombs that the U.S. is hitting them with.

As kinda funny as that would be. i doubt some dipshit tumblr/twitter leftie is behind it. nor do i think its some trumpist/alt right clown(though if trump loses bad enough, we could see thoughs) I think thats either a troll/hoax. or some hosed up attention whore.

To me it's more like a "we shouldn't call them that because both the group and right-wing people get to point at the name and say 'Look! Islamic is right there in the name!'" Yeah, there's more nuance involved with that name, but both groups of people deal with the world in completely black and white terms.

Also a bomb was neutralized on 27th St. because of a couple of hobos. They ruined the bomb and walked off with the suitcase it was hiding inside.
