30 Percent of Republicans Want to Bomb Aladdin’s Hometown Agrabah


Public Policy Polling asked Republicans if they would want to bomb the fictional town of Agrabah in Disney’s Aladdin movie.

These are the results:

Support bombing Agrabah  …………………………30%

Oppose bombing Agrabah  …………………………13%

Not sure ……………………………………………………57%

AladdinIs nothing sacred?

One wonders where all these Republicans were radicalized? Charles Pierce notes some more startling aspects of the polling.

1) That Marco Rubio’s unfavorable numbers are exactly the same (34 percent) as Donald Trump’s. Which makes Rubio seven points more unpopular than Ted Cruz, whom nobody likes except his mother, and she could be jiving, too. And that, in a head-to-head hypothetical, Cruz crushes Rubio, 48 percent to 34. Xenophobes have long memories, Marco.

2) That 80 percent of Republican primary voters favor banning gun sales to people on the no-fly list, not that it will matter.

3) That 46 percent of them want a database kept of all Muslims in America.

4) That just as many of them believe that Muslims danced on rooftops on 9/11 as do not believe that this thing that didn’t happen didn’t happen.

    They were not memorizing it. They were, in effect, drawing the letters.

  • Reynardine

    Put down the damned eggnog. Next thing, you’ll puke.

  • Reynardine

    Oh, crumb. I assure you that Florida has better to show than this, even though I recently saw worse.

    P.S.: This looks like the dangerous territory between too much eggnog to have good sense and not enough to pass out.

  • Reynardine

    It’s quite a hit, and just might go viral.

  • Reynardine

    Too much eggnog. You can expect a lot more of these between now and New Year’s.

  • I don’t read German which made it incomprehensible, further compounding the poorly written prose George. I must be the worst RWNJ evah!

  • Reynardine

    Wonderful! I’ve sent it on!

  • Reynardine

    You’ll have to go to Poland and see for yourself. I’m not in the mail-order bride business.

  • Sam Seed

    Peace to all…

    Who’s Jameel?

  • Reynardine

    I could see Brother Tanveer characterized as that cat.

    He wrote like the mush in his brains. Hess, Rosenberg, and several other Party “intellectuals” helped him clean it up, which is why some passages are elegantly phrased, while others still look, er, original. I have tried to read it several times, and gotten a headache for my pains. Still, as William Shirer remarked, if more people had read it when it came out, fewer people would have had illusions about his real intentions.

    So basically no polish girl for me. Okay.
    (Excellent summary though).

    Russian is the only language in which our lectures were given, and in which I became fluent (I am now rusty). I can read Bulgarian, and, when over there, could also understand it spoken. But I misspoke somewhat: my master’s was in the literature of these countries, with a heavy emphasis on Russian… some of which was quite archaic. Our exposure to the literature of other Slavic nations — and even of what we would now style Romania– was through their influence on the development of Russian language and literature, which became clearly distinguishable from Ukrainian only at the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, and from Belorussian even later. The noble Romanian family, the Cantemirs, wrote heavily in Russian; the Dracula chronicles were translated into Russian at the time of Ivan the Terrible, and were a backhanded way of denouncing this Tsar’s brutality.

    Poland was distinguished from the lands that could be called, in the broad sense, Russian, by its allegiance to Rome, which explains its different orthography. Its society was strongly stratified; its culture, feudal. Its relation to Russia was mainly one of war. After the death of Boris Godunov, a Russian pawn of Poland, Grigorii Otrepiev was forcibly installed on the Russian throne. He killed Fyodor Borisovich, the heir apparent, and raped Xenia Borisovna, the Tsar’s only surviving child, before immuring her in a nunnery, thus extinguishing the Godunov line. Russia paid Poland back later by partitioning it. When resurrected after WW I, it still had feudal (and futile) ways, as evinced by its gallant attempt to fight off Hitler’s panzers with cavalry.

    I hope this helps a little.

    And from what I’ve heard he was a terrible writer to boot.

  • Jekyll

    Probably Tanveer & Jameel.

  • Jekyll

    so I guess Polish is not entirely Eastern European per se.

  • Reynardine
