Every time a drunken, crazed, right wing hoodlum yells "Yee-Haw" and blows up a non-christian house of worship or murders those wearing clothing different from the standard boots and jeans, He is actually following in the footsteps of the Southern Jihadist War of Aggression.

To demonstrate how deeply "our" (meaning European white) American culture has been influenced since its inception;

The battle cry: "Yee-Haw" is actually derived from, you guessed it: "Ji-Had".

Muslim culture, whether "we" like it or not has been with US since the beginning.

So They're correct. Most of the redneck terrorist attacks may well have jihadist roots.

At least those where they cry out for holy-war.

Where did you get that idea? So far as I can tell, yee-haw most likely comes from the commands for horses - gee to go left, and haw to go right.

Sue, The etymology is unclear and certainly there are those who speak of plowman calling "Yeeeeee", then "Haw" to turn a circle and right a plow.

It was also said to be used as a chilling War Cry by Southern soldiers during the US Civil War.

Soldiers of other campaigns may have been familiar with the cry of "Jihad" and, considering it particularly threatening, may have adopted it.

In researching this I discovered a Hard Rock band in New Hampshire called:

"Yeehaw Jihad". So my thinking is not original.

I will not allow Republicans to be the only people entitled to Alternate Facts.

As far as I'm concerned homegrown redneck Terrorists are Muslims and support Jihad.

And It is Now a FACT.

Let's start arresting and prosecuting these white terrorists and fill Gitmo with them.

Spread the Word. Jiiiii-Haaad!

ps: I appreciate your work. Sorry I make it harder with my insane rants. :>)

Actually by definition all extremist religion are right wing forms of conservatism. Orthodox religion is right wing conservative ideology. Just as all forms of 'right wing death squads' are of course extremist right wing ideology. ISIS is right wing ideology gone mad. Saudi Whabbism is one of the most conservative extremist forms of Islam. Whabbism is the religion ISIS fights under and tries to propagate through violence and death. ISIS is right wing conservatism gone amuck. Virtually all Islamic terrorists practice Saudi Whabbism. Just as almost all American domestic terrorism is committed by right wing conservate christian fanatics. Conservatism unless moderate or held in check, is one of the most lethal forms ideology in the world. Israels Likud party now in power under Netanyahu , practices the most conservative and violent form of the Jewish faith. All conservatism is a direct threat to world peace and humanities progress.

These trolls take me too seriously, which means I must be doing something right. I like to have fun and explore ideas. Very Cathartic.

But you're right on, Z, with the religious extremism. They are all dangerously deadly toxic.

Gibbon your posts are usually so well written and well thought out ,its hard not to always take you serious. Although I know a tongue in cheek when I see one. Personally I'm one of your biggest fans, I love your rants, posts, blogs, what have you.

I have no idea why people would follow philosophy from the bronze age for religion. To base your life on something that might have happened is ludicrus. Jesus certainly had good things to follow but the last to follow them are the Republicans.
