The Shortbus Caliphate (SBC) also known as "FunGroup" of 2b2t is the self-declared "most irrelevant faction on 2b2t" who's goal is to meme. The group attempted to transform into the Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) after the fall of Block Game Mecca, but it never fully succeeded. So just as its creation was a shitpost, the shift from Muslim to Jewish was never fully committed to. As a result of this, JIDF and Shortbus Caliphate will be used interchangeably.
The Shortbus Caliphate was founded on 6 November 2017 by AutismBot, Joey_Coconut, and _m_o_t_h_r_a_ following months of Islamic religious instructional shitposts in the Block Game Mecca discord server by Joey_Coconut. Its purposes - to be the "most irrelevant faction on 2b2t", and to spread the glories of Block Game Islam.
Whilst officially, the purposes are to be irrelevant and spread Islam, the original purpose of the Shortbus Caliphate was to serve as a smokescreen for Block Game Mecca, so that projects could be built and posted about, crediting the members of the base, but protecting the secret identity of Block Game Mecca.
The Twelve Steps of The Foundation of The Shortbus Caliphate
What follows is the twelve steps to the foundation of the Shortbus Caliphate, as set aside by _m_o_t_h_r_a_ and Joey_Coconut between 7 and 19 November, 2017.
- We admitted that we were powerless over autism--that our play had become unmanageable
- Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity
- Made a decision to turn over our will and our lives to the care of Allah
- Made a searching and fearless inventory of our dupe stashes
- Admitted to Allah, to ourselves, and to other Jihadis the exact nature of our riches
- We were entirely ready to have Allah remove all of these blocks from our inventory
- We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings
- We made a list of all the autistic projects that we had schemed, and became willing to spend literally months of play time constructing them
- Made direct amends to these projects, constructing them even more grandiosely than previously imagined, except where to do so would literally be impossible
- Continued to create personal dupe stashes and contribute them
- Sought through auto farming and mob grinding to improve our conscious contact with Allah, as we understood Him, praying for knowledge of his will and for the power to carry it out
- Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
Short Bus Sharia
The principals, wisdom, and punishments of the Shortbus Caliphate as lain out by AutismBot and _m_o_t_h_r_a_ on the 23 November, 2017 are as follows:
PRINCIPLES OF FAITH:
- GLORY TO ALLAH THROUGH SUICIDE BOMBING
- GLORY TO ALLAH THROUGH AUTISM
- GLORY TO ALLAH BY MOLESTING NON BELIEVERS
WISDOM OF ALLAH:
- YOU MUST DIE DURING SUICIDE BOMBING, YOUR SURVIVAL DETRACTS FROM THE GLORY OF ALLAH
- YOU MUST BUILD GLORIOUS MONUMENTS TO ALLAH
- YOU MUST HARASS INCESSANTLY ANY NON-MUSLIMS YOU MAY FIND ON THE SERVER
PUNISHMENTS FOR DISOBEDIENCE:
- IF YOU FAIL TO SUICIDE, THE PUNISHMENT IS DEATH BY BEHEADING, YOU WILL ONLY RECEIVE ONE VIRGIN IN PARADISE
- IF YOUR MONUMENT DISPLEASES ALLAH, THE PUNISHMENT IS DEATH BY DEATH
- IF YOU MOLEST BELIEVERS, YOU SHALL BE CAST UNTO THE DESERT AND BRED WITH A CAMEL
A later section, stating "Suicide bomb by any means necessary. Allah prefers blood of the naked spawnfag above all else, but suicide bombing a geared player is acceptable. What pleases Allah is your martyrdom in the name of the LORD." was later included.
Immediately following its foundation, the Shortbus Caliphate as an organization itself was not very active, as the vast majority of its members were residents of Block Game Mecca. Most activities of the Shortbus Caliphate were also activities of Bloack Game Mecca. While originally following this routine in the case of the Shortbus Caliphate Mapart (designed by _m_o_t_h_r_a_, actualized by Joey_Coconut, and built by the Meccaites at large), attitudes gradually shifted. During this period there was a large influx of members. As a a Hitler statue had been built and the schematica already existed (special thanks to Nations), it was decided to build a replica in spawn. The result was the Hitler Beach Party Scavenger Hunt in April of 2018. This was during the Sixth Incursion, where most members of the Caliphate were participants, although not under its banner.
The construction of Hitler II was a landmark event in the History of the Shortbus Caliphate as it was its first major activity that did not just include members of Block Game Mecca. About 1/3 of the participants were not Meccaites. Many members of the Shortbus Caliphate joined jared2013 and the revived 4th Reich for its 31bases31griefs challenge. This ended on 31 May, 2018. Soon after this, Block Game Mecca was leaked and griefed by Beardler. Information regarding the coordinates of Beardler's base, Purgatory II (of the Builder's Haven group) became known. Xdolf and AlphaComputer joined the Shortbus Caliphate and they, _m_o_t_h_r_a_, and AutismBot destroyed the base. Beardler was subsequently kicked out of his own group and his involvement in the server fell drastically afterward. Upon the fall of Block Game Mecca on 1 June, 2018, the members decided to shift to a Jewish theme, though that theme was never fully committed to.
Even though the group was renamed and re-themed, all the members continued to call it the Shortbus Caliphate. On September 11 2018, AutismBot resigned from his position at the head of the Caliphate (since he quit the server), and handed leadership over to Joey_Coconut. It was subsequently reorganized on the 20th of that month to fit its original Caliphatic theme. The group became inactive, only reactivating again in late July of 2020, after Joey_Coconut merged the JIDF back into the Shortbus Caliphate.
In July of 2020 Joey_Coconut revived the Shortbus Caliphate as a group dedicated to autism and trolling. On 9/11 of 2020 they created the largest TNT explosion ever recorded in Survival Minecraft at Ground Zero (This record was later beaten by the Brownmen and then days later beaten again in a joint project between the Brownmen and the Infinity Incursion for the 2021 New Years Event). The group has had 2 publically known bases, the first was Fort Aqua,which was leaked after being discovered by digandbuilder(Also known as DigMC) on stream with coordinates showing. The second was a base called Beruit,which orginally was a meme base,but actually survivded mutiple months and became a somewhat serious base. It was leaked after a member made a map of the surrounding area,and was then griefed.
Many of the old members of the Shortbus Caliphate have rejoined the group, and they are constantly coming up with new projects.
- Ascended Autist- An honorary rank exclusive to AutismBot, in early versions of the dogmatic texts of the Caliphate, AutismBot was mentioned instead of Allah, being a faithful Muslim, he realized this was blasphemy and stepped down so that Allah could be properly worshipped.
- Ascended Caliph - The rank of the leader of the Caliphate following the exit of Autismbot.
- Pharisee (F.Caliph)- The most trusted rank of the Caliphate, these members (including the Ascended Autist) are the ones who have proven themselves, providing proof of fulfilling all Shortbus Sharia, as well as proving they can be trusted.
- Imam - Following its reorganization under Joey_Coconut, all Caliphs not well-known to Joey_Coconut were demoted to this honorary rank.
- KING OF 2B2T YOU MAD NIGGERS YOU MAD JEWFAGS- An honorary rank given to jared2013 for being autistic by the Caliphate's standards.
- Sicari (F.ISIS)- These members have completed at least half of the Shortbus Sharia, they are merely a stepping stone for eventually reaching Pharisee.
- Jew(F.Jihadi)- The Pleb-tiered rank for successfully completing a suicide bombing and providing proof. This rank is the lowest that can be earned.
- Ayatollah - The Leader (Joey_Coconut)
- Caliphs - A council that helps govern the group
- Soldiers of Allah - Most trusted members, help come up with new projects and manage lower members
- Assad Supporters - Trusted members
- ISIS - A member of the group
- Jihadi - initiate/trial members
