Liberty Measles

noun; clipping
New name for German Measles(the disease) introduced by the US government. Due to German opposition to US foreign policy, the US government supported the endeavor to substitute liberty for German in most everyday words. Due to Germany’s recent outbursts against US policy, the US government decided to replace all words using the word ‘german’ with ‘liberty’ with the idea that this would strengthen the country by being more patriotic.
 
Representative Ney’s action (urged on by Representative Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican) is meant to demonise France for its refusal to support a war against Iraq. It’s an echo of the propaganda frenzy seen in the United States against Germany.
