“I just heard someone refer to Texas as ‘Howdy Arabia’ and I still haven’t stopped laughing”

“Howdy Arabia” (howdy + Saudi Arabia) has been printed on many images. Both Texas and Saudi Arabia have oil, and also fundamentalist religious beliefs. “Howdy Arabia” can refer to a bit of Texas in Saudi Arabia, or more usually a bit of Saudi Arabia in Texas.
 
“Howdy Arabia. thats what IM talkin bout” was posted on X/Twitter by Uncle Ron on October 8, 2009. “New name for Texas: Howdy Arabia” was posted on X/Twitter by Conor Ryan on February 28, 2016. “Texas should secede and call itself ‘Howdy Arabia’” was posted on X/Twitter by Chaimy4life on November 6, 2017.  “Howdy Arabia A sarcastic way of referring to the ultra conservative southern American culture that is highly Islamophobic and xenophobic while ironically sharing a lot of values with Islamic fundamentalism, such as curtailing the rights of women and LGBTQ people” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on November 9, 2020.

If the US ever takes over Saudi Arabia, we should rename it Howdy Arabia.

I for one would like to formally thank black people for doing everything in their power to keep this country from becoming Howdy Arabia.

Howdy Arabia
A sarcastic way of referring to the ultra conservative southern American culture that is highly Islamophobic and xenophobic while ironically sharing a lot of values with Islamic fundamentalism, such as curtailing the rights of women and LGBTQ people.
It would be nice if women could be trusted to make their own choices for their own bodies, but that’s not how it works here in Howdy Arabia.

Texas if now known as Howdy Arabia, because their politicians, the Y’all-Qaeda, have been trying to return women, minorities and marginalized folk to sub Afghanistan levels of human rights.
