Whatever You Do, Don’t Mention The War!

Um yeah, about that ride. When considering naming a carnival ride, I would probably avoid the name “The Zyklon” as Zyklon B was the name of the gas used by the Nazis to kill millions of Jews during the Holocaust. I’m just saying! Sure it is also German for cyclone but many South Florida residents don’t see it that way. One Holocaust survivor said “Of all the names in the world, why do they need to name rides that? It’s upsetting to me to come across that, as a survivor. I lost my whole family in the gas chambers, particularly in Auschwitz.”
That word isn’t new to controversy in the US, a few years back  a company tried to trademark the name Zyklon for appliances they were selling, which included gas ovens.

He Just Had To Bring Up the Holocaust and September 11th

Imadinnerjacket has this amazing ability to clear a room. The gray suited Iranian leader has made quite a spectacle  at the UN conference in the US by creating a mass walkout of diplomats after he ranted about the US being the “slave masters” and referring to 9/11 as a “mysterious” attack designed to start a war against Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh yes, the Jews didn’t escape from his wrath either as he told the deminishing crowd that European countries use the Holocaust as an excuse to pay “ransom to the Zionists” . Hmm, I’m guessing no one will be sitting at his table for lunch!
