Its getting really tough out here in the U.S., especially for us Middle easterners who left Muslim lands in favor of Christian lands.
And after having found some comfort to leave our terroristic lifestyle behind, convert to whatever religion we want, eat whatever we enjoyed; Falafel or Bacon, smoke Hookah or American Marlboro cigarettes or the combination thereof; nowadays these pesky Muslims who are worse than liberals are even haunting us right on our backyards telling us that we can’t eat pork? It took me years of harassment by my kids to develop a taste for pepperoni Pizza and now all of the sudden I need to watch myself lest I offend Muslims? In Mosul, Iraq the ISIS are banning pickles, jeans, pistachios and falafel. And over here, the liberals are trying to ban soda pop cigarettes and fat foods.
And then I read this on the news:
And now, a couple of days ago, it wasn’t a greasy slab of bacon that stirred up controversy for a Vermont diner, but a road sign advertising that offended a member of the town’s Muslim community.
The Sneakers Bistro got its pick of a sign to stake into a prime traffic median along Winooski’s Main Street after dolling up the bed with annual flowers for the city of Winooski’s “Operation Bloom” volunteer program.
The sign that read “YIELD FOR BACON” was installed in June, according to a cached Facebook post, but it wasn’t until August that a Muslim resident of Winooski claimed the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork.
The diner simply took a cue from the thick-cuts, Canadian-style and even turkey bacon listed on their breakfast and lunch menu for the sign’s inspiration.
The restaurant owners, who have not been identified, contacted the woman who complained and took the sign down out of respect on Friday. The backlash, however, continued over the weekend and led to the takedown of its Facebook page and even Yelp reviews.
“We are here to serve people breakfast, not politics,” the owners wrote on their Facebook page Saturday. “We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community.”
In an interview with WPTZ-TV, Caleb Wiley, a resident of Winooski, said the restaurant should not have taken the sign down because of one complaint.
“I respect her religion and her right to believe what she wants but I’m pretty sure the First Amendment extends to bacon and the selling of it,” Wiley told the TV station.
Perhaps its time to give these pesky Muslims a speech from Yasser Arafat, just before he croaked “If you don’t like it, go and drink the sea in Gaza”, America is the land of pork and honey, not camel milk and camel meat.
Heck, this type of news is making me an extremist. Don’t get me wrong, I have no intentions of having flashbacks but I sure would like it if someone out there could help convert me into becoming an American redneck.
