Vermont: Muslim War on the Word ‘Bacon’


How hostile and invasive is Muslim immigration? Today’s non-headchoppy example: A Muslim woman said she was “offended” by the word “bacon” on a public advertisement and convinced the Vermont business, Sneakers Bistro, to remove it.

This behavior is typical Muslim supremacism. They immigrate to a non-Muslim country and then demand that the place conform to Islamic law, bit by bit in a culture war that never ends. Every small submission incites Islamics to push harder.

It’s a big mistake to knuckle under to Muslims’ ridiculous sensitivities: they say they cannot abide a porky word printed on a sign but are fine with beheading and mass murder of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Yazidis, Buddhists and anyone else not perfectly Islamic.

A young man interviewed during a news report’s film segment observed, “I’m pretty sure the First Amendment extends to bacon.”

Oh, right — free expression under the law, an American tradition Muslims don’t like.

Advertisement removed after resident expresses offense, WPTZ, August 23, 2014

WINOOSKI, Vt. —A sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displayed the words “Yield Sneakers Bacon” until Friday morning. The bistro owners took it down.

It got there as part of “Operation Bloom.”

A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word “bacon” on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.

It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.

The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings. [. . .]

Food is an important part of culture. Whenever immigrants reach a small number in a new place, they open restaurants so they can eat their familiar chow. Sometimes the foreigners even refuse free food when it doesn’t conform to their cultural habits. And we know how much immigrants like free stuff.

Below, several hundred Parisians attended a government-banned wine and sausage party in 2010 near the Arc de Triomphe to express their support of traditional French culture against the demands of Muslims to submit.

Finally, as a little palate cleanser, here’s a foodie report on the Baltimore bar Bad Decisions, famous for its Bacon Happy Hour — yum!
