Wikipedia: al-Qaeda
Al-Qaeda (/ælˈkaɪdə/ or /ˌælkɑːˈiːdə/; Arabic: القاعدة‎ al-qāʿidah, Arabic: [ælqɑːʕɪdɐ], translation: “The Base”, “The Foundation” or “The Fundament” and alternatively spelled al-Qaida, al-Qæda and sometimes al-Qa’ida) is a global militant Sunni Islamist organization founded by Osama bin Laden, Abdullah Azzam, and several others, at some point between August 1988 and late 1989, with origins traceable to the Arab volunteers who fought against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s. It operates as a network comprising both a multinational, stateless army and an Islamist, extremist, wahhabi jihadist group. It has been designated as a terrorist group by the United Nations Security Council, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the European Union, the United States, Russia, India, and various other countries (see below). Al-Qaeda has carried out many attacks on targets it considers kafir.

Who would have knew that a tongue and cheek phrase I used in 2011 would come back and haunt me, or made me so loved.
Yes, I used #YallQaeda in reference to fringe fans of the SEC. It was even referenced in my Saturday Show I hosted on SportsRadio 730 The UMP in Huntsville, AL.

It seems #YallQaeda has risen from the ashes in the New Year in reference to this.

‘Y’all Qaeda’: People aren’t taking the armed militia in Oregon too seriously
By Brian Ries

What do you call cowboy hat-wearing militiamen who have taken over a federal building while criticizing the federal government with a deep southern drawl?

They might call themselves defenders of “the people.” But to most of Twitter, they’re “Y’all Qaeda,” “Vanilla ISIS,” “Yee Hawdists,” “Yokel Haram,” “Talibundy” and “Meal Team Six” — all plays on real-life jihadist terminology.

Social media exploded late Sunday night with widespread mockery of the armed group, which is led by Ammon Bundy, the flannel-cloaked 40-year-old son of rancher Cliven Bundy, who once sparred with the federal government over grazing rights — and won.

Internet mocks Oregon militia with “Vanilla ISIS,” “Y’all Qaeda”
Before the militia group at the center of a standoff on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon named themselves “Citizens for Constitutional Freedom,” social media users came up with their own title.

The Internet is making a mockery of the group, calling them everything from “Vanilla ISIS” to “Y’All Qaeda.”

Since Monday, the hashtag #VanillaISIS has received around 1,050 tweets per hour, while #YallQaeda has been shared more than 2,600 times per hour, according to social media analytics site twazzup.
