No, that way they'd only have to amend it again to "gas the Jews" as their final solution.
They should rename it "Spanish Inquistionville".

Maybe they could also go after the "Kill the Moors" and "Kill the Indians" names, too, and change it to "Fark the Tourists."

But, the real excitement of course is going to come at the end of the summer, during Sexual Awareness week. We import two hundred hookers from around the world, and each camper, armed with only a thermos of coffee and two thousand dollars cash, tries to visit as many countries as he can. The winner of course is named King of Sexual Awareness week and is allowed to rape and pillage the neighboring towns until camp ends.

FTFA: Although Jews were killed in the area, researchers believe the town got its current name from Jewish residents who converted to Catholicism and wanted to reinforce their repudiation of Judaism to convince Spanishauthorities of their loyalty, Rodriguez said.
Others suspect the change may have come from a slip of the pen.


GOD DAMMIT!.... This was supposed to read "Camp Kiss The Jews". Are you telling me they misprinted all the signs?

Yes Mayor... I'm... we'll have them reprinted.

There's no time for that just put them up and and we'll get around to fixing them later. Farking printers!This is why you examine your order before paying for it. They're always farking things up.

Yes Mayor.

[img.fark.net image 816x659]


It's named after the Slavey People, one of the first nations people. The problem is instead of asking the people themselves what they were called they asked the Cree what they were called. They were an enemy of the Cree so they told the English they're called the slave people, because the Cree often took them as slaves. The English didn't like the connotation of slavery so they changed it to Slavey. They're actually called the Dene.

So there is a valid reason to have the name of the lake changed to Great Dene Lake.

Let's do it! (Oh wait, Utah is racist as fark, that will never fly.) As a Canadian, I'm always happy to see how far the Dene (aka Athabaskan) people got.

The most awkwardly named place I've ever been was Squaw Peak in Phoenix. It's been renamed to Piestawa Peak (after the first Native American female casualty in Iraq) but it's still on Squaw Peak Rd and everyone still calls it Squaw Peak. Just in case I need some racism and some sexism in one nice place name. It was a pretty hike, though!

Seeing as the "kill a Jew": is the result of naming a local lemonade drink after killing the Jews, they should change the area's name to "I could murder a lemonade" or "I could murder a juice box, right now".


Dammit it, where is that boy?

24.media.tumblr.com

Ah, there he is. The poster boy for Castrillo Matajudios.

I have been reading a book on crypto-Jews and crypto-Muslims in England during the Middle Ages (the Jews alleged arrived in 1066 with William the Conqueror and were expelled in 1390 by Richard the something or other. Alleged. Middle Eastern genes arrived several thousand years before Judaism developed (around 4000 years ago). And they haven't gone very far since--you can still spot the places where Jewish, Phoenecian or prehistoric farmers settled in greater numbers on maps of the Y chromosome distribution in England. Every where there was a tin, gold, iron, or copper mine, everywhere the Romans had a legion and thus a service town, every major market town and port has a concentration of E1b, J, G, and other Middle Eastern and Central European genes.

When the first Jews arrived, there were Jews to meet them.

There is a small region in Cantabria where the E1b haplogroup reaches almost 40%. It has a population of about 4,000 of whom about 1,500 are herdsmen. They are said to be the descendants of Muslims who fled into those lovely hills. These valleys are on the North Coast of Spain and it is likely the people from there (who were the last to get agriculture except for the British and Scandinavians are descended from people attracted to Spain and Portugal because of its tin and gold, etc., and who later moved on to mines in Britain and the Atlantic Coast.

The funny thing is that in 1290 when the Jews were expelled from England, nobody thought to keep records of how many Jews there where, if they followed instructions to leave, or where they went. All we know is that a ship full of Jews sank with the loss of 160 lives. There were at least 16,000 Jews before the Expulsion not counting children under 12, who would no doubt have been another 16,000. Even in Spain where the Jews and Moors were expelled as recently as 1492, there were so many converts and crypto-Jews and crypto-Muslims already, nobody is really sure they all went away.

Sheriff: Are there any Jews here?
Sol: Moshe, Moshe, come to the counter. Are there any Jews here?
Moshe: Jews! God forbid! I don't know any Jews. Do you know any Jews, Sol, I mean Paul?
Sol: No Jews around here.We're all good Christians here. We pay out tithes, donate to the poor, our taxes are all paid up, just ask Yiddle the Tax Collector. No Jews, no sir, no way, no how.


Of course, the authors of histories of the Jews tend to be deep in Denial. Especially if Pharoah gets his hands on them. They also tend to go the other way.

Still, even after discounting their theories at 50% or more, you have to admit that it is unlikely that the authorities got all the Jews, especially since 99% of them weren't Jewish to start with. The same thing happened when the French drove the Protestants out of France. Remember the Puritans? They fled to Holland but didn't care for the lax attitude of the Dutch towards dishonest crazy religious minorities (instead of the bootstrapy English crazy religious minority, so they fled to America. They took a certain number of Dutch wives with them, apparently. Other Huguenots sneaked off to the Dutch colonies with the Dutch. Occasionally their names will turn French from Dutch or German when you go back a couple more generations.

It was bad enough when the revisionists started looking for crypto-Protestants among the good honest mercants and peasants of New France, but now they are looking for crypto-Jews as well. There is scarcely a Good Catholic left if you take away the alleged crypto-Jews, crypto-Protestants and New England slaves purchased from the Indians and converted to the True Faith. New France was, apparently, much like France. And don't mention the Fur Traders because to be fair, few of them were very good Catholics to start with.

The size of the French aristocracy quadrupled (measured by particules (the "de> in aristocractic names) when it was abolished at the Revolution. That gives you an idea of how many Jews there were in Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and so forth after the Jews were expelled, welcomed back to restore the economy, expelled again, welcomed back to restore the economy, expelled and so forth.

Did you know the Mexican population is riddled with Crypto-Jews. A bet you a lot of the illegals are Jewish. They must be used to it by now. Expelled, welcomed back to build America, expelled, welcomed back to build America .... the injustice just never ends.

I was working on a local family this morning and I thought they were probably Jews but they turned out to be Amish/Mennonites/Brethren from Pennsylvania.

Then again, who knows which German names are Jewish and which are Amish? Not me.. The Amish may be really really old-fashioned Jews, the kind who are not adverse to a little farming.

These Spanish peasants had better watch their backs or the geneticists and genealogists will get them, like that dumbass who ended up having to run himself out of town when the genetic test he unwisely took showed him to be about a quarter sub-Saharan African.

In, out, in, out, in, out, in out ... you'd think that illegal workers were cats. No wonder the US border has cat-flaps every three miles.

Big deal. The Athabaskans got as far as New Mexico, where they now call themselves the Navaho. Look it up. Of course, there are no lakes between Winnipeg and New Mexico unless you count Lake Mead. But that's not our fault.

They may have gotten a lot further than that. The dominant male chromosome among the native Americans in a large triangular region which includes the Alkonquin tribes and Athabaskans is R1b. This is also the dominant  male chromosome in Europe and one branch of the bearers went back to Africa and are found among the peoples of the Western Sahara.

I refuse to believe that they can all be descended from European fur traders because a lot of these tribes didn't have anything to do with European fur traders and besides, the evidence shows that they were ALL R1b before the White Man arrived.

In other words, you can't tell if you are white or a Cherokee based on your Y chromosome alone. Mitochondrial DNA may not help either. You have to have the full autosomal test which can tell you which regions of the world your ancestors came from. Usually these are extremely mixed because there are few pure bred populations even in the remotest places since Columbus.

Mind you, the people of Utah tend to believe that the natives are crypto-Jews who emigrated from North Africa. Look it up in the Book of Mormon!

Did you know that Moroni the Angel has a whole town in Spain named after him (apparently)?

>There ain't nobody here but us morons" is the State Motto of Idaho, which nearly has more Mormons than Utah does nowadays.

In and Out, In and Out, In and Out .... Isn't that a burger chain somewhere out West? What percentage of the kitchen and serving staff are illegals, I wonder?

I see the Mormons have dropped that racist crap about the colour of some people's skin being a Curse of God on them for their back-sliding. Good. Mormons can learn. Mormons can adapt. Mormons can even be liberal. That's a start. I bet the Mormon Church is full of crypto-liberals, yearning to breathe free gay marry.
