A special acknowledgement to ScottSA, who started the whole thing with his slogan, Let’s Stop Pretending.

And the Gates of Vienna favorite was from Jason Pappas: Send a jihadi to paradise.

Thanks to everyone who contributed. This contest has sparked suggestions for additional ones, so stay tuned…

What you have shown Hitler and Goering wearing are turbans generally worn by Sikhs. It will send out a wrong message to your readers.

And while I am posting, here is something interesting..

http://www.ipatrix.com/2006/08/20/get-off-my-mthf-plane/

"British holidaymakers staged an unprecedented mutiny - refusing to allow their flight to take off until two men they feared were terrorists were forcibly removed."

"But I guess in this “day of terror”, dark-skinned men speaking in strange tongues have lesser rights than a frightened kitten."

Notice the "dark skinned men part". Apparently Indians are also terrorists.

Ping!

Recognition from the premier e-couple of the anti-jihadist blogosphere! That makes my day! ;)

Russet Shadows said...

I am simply delighted. :)

For the next contest, I offer:

ISLAM IS LAME.

It looks good on a bumper.

(And provokes many an apt double-take... if not spit.)

Those are Sikh turbans on Nazis. If someone ever sets up a Gates of Lahore site celebrating the Sikh defeat of Muslim Afghanis in 1799 they are going to be p'd off.

Thanks for the link. Great turbans, but they are Sikh.

Mihir Shah, unaha-closp, ScottSA --

I have revised the turbans, and will post an update about it shortly.

Yorkshireminer --

I had to delete your comment because of language. Please remember that we try to be PG-13 here (i.e. refrain from f**k, c**t, m*****f**ker, etc., and no graphic descriptions).

Sometimes homeschooled children visit Gates of Vienna to further their education.

Congrats to ZionistYoungster!!!

SBH said...

That was exciting! My kids are going to be proud of me.

Are you going to print them up and sell them?

Good work, ZionistYoungster!!

ZionistYoungster said...

Thanks for the competition! Competition, it's what drives people to achieve things (and that's why both hippies and Muslims are basically against it... subject for a post in the works).

I have to, of course, disclaim any pretense of absolute originality. I tipped ThatsMy2Cents back on the Slogan Contest, and I may have been inspired by a slight variation of that theme on a thread in LGF. LGF and its commenters always bring me good ideas.

Crusader Coyote said...

^____^ Congrats to everyone! I've very surprise I even rated an honorable mention! ^_^

I needta go to Cafepress and go make that a bumpersticker, seeing as others thought it clever, too!

Crusader Coyote said...

Is anyone else gonna put these on bumperstickers? I only feel right using my own, but I'd sure love to shell out my spare change for some of the others (like the winners!).

Maybe the funds can go to a worthy cause. Pizza for the IDF, Wounded Warrior Project, or something. . .

just a thought . . .

snooponyoo said...

My preferred slogan: 'A war so important I'm prepared to fight it.' But I suppose that wouldn't have occurred to you.

I missed the contest, but I would have nominated the contents of MassBackwards' bumper sticker. Short and to the point:
