UK: Man loses out on job after Muslim boss takes offense at his offer to buy bacon sandwiches...
Jihad Watch ^ | 06/15/2013 | Robert Spencer

Bacon sandwiches are now racist. What race is bacon again? I keep forgetting. "Contractor loses out on his 'dream' £1,000-a-week IT role after unwittingly saying he would treat his Muslim recruiter to a bacon sandwich," by Helen Lawson for the Daily Mail, June 15 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur): An IT contractor claims an off-the-cuff remark about a bacon sandwich cost him a £1,000-a-week job. Clive Hunt, 58, says he was offered an eight-month NHS contract after attending an interview set up by recruitment firm Reed. 'Later, as I was driving home, Ms Sacranie's manager called me and wanted to know about the racist remark I had made.

'I said I had not made one and he said I had said that I would get her a bacon sandwich. But I only made the remark because she referred to breakfast.

'The woman was of Asian appearance. I am not a racist, never have been. I wasn't brought up that way.

'Bacon sandwiches are often eaten at breakfast. I didn't think for a minute this would have caused offence otherwise I wouldn't have said it.'

Mr Hunt said he was due to take up the NHS role last Monday.

'I have lost a contract because of an unassuming remark about a bacon sarnie,' he said.

Most rational people would think that being afraid of a word describing “non-kosher” food, and punishing someone for saying it, is superstitious, not devotional. Good thing he didn’t try to take her picture with his cellphone. She might have thought he was “stealing her soul.”

"Mr. Jefferson, I would like to offer you this job."
"Thank you, sir."
"To celebrate, perhaps we could go out for clam chowder."
"That would be lovely, sir."
"Tell me, Mr. Jefferson, do you usually put anything on your clam chowder?"
"Well, perhaps some of those little crackers ..."
"Mr. Jefferson, I have to rescind my job offer immediaely. Your racist comment and your name calling will not be tolerated at my firm. Good day to you."

As I have posted elsewhere, EDL Leader Tommy Robinson has stated that there are two “laws” in England today: One (the more lenient) for the Muslims; the other (far harsher) for everyone else.

The irony? The two-tiered legal system is primarily policed and adjudicated/litigated by non-Muslims.

For now. Next step: it will be adjudicated and policed by Muslims.

Bacon attack on an American mosque: prank or hate crime?
Strips of bacon spelling ‘PIG’ and ‘CHUMP’ were found in front of a South Carolina mosque Sunday. In post-9/11 America, pork – which is unclean in Islam – is a primary form of anti-Muslim protest.

I'm not sure what to think about this. The OP of this thread included the following.

'The woman was of Asian appearance.

Noting that this incident took place in UK, I then notice the following line in another FR thread referencing a UK incident.

"Asian" is British media code for "Muslim."

UK: Muslim gang shouts abuse at young air cadets at Army barracks

I don't know what was Muslim about the woman's appearance, but not only are Muslims evidently expecting people to profile them concerning their prohibited foods, but consider the following. Roman Catholics, for example, have food restrictions too but would say, simply and diplomatically, "no thank you, today is Friday and I'm not supposed to eat meat," as opposed to having somebody fired.

What am I overlooking?

Even if the woman was wearing hijab I can’t understand how talking about bacon should be considered racist. They expect everyone to know what “insults” them? I’ve said “merry christmas” to Jews (not knowing their faith)before and they politely say, “I celebrate Hannuka, but thanks”.

Easy, UK. Get rid of all your muslims and life might approach beautiful again.

Or at least don’t allow them to call the shots. But now in U.S. we are being told that “illegal alien” is racist so we need to clean up our own back yard. Even “undocumented worker” is being attacked.

How, exactly, is this racist?

Are Muslimes now a race? What race would that be? Asian? Asian Christians would not find eating pork (or, more accurately, talking about eating pork) offensive; nor would Chinese, who--last time I looked--were Asians.

Perhaps--perhaps--this may be insulting to Muslimes, but that is NOT racism.

"Well, perhaps some of those little crackers ..."

Not meaning to hijack the thread, but this is what I'm having for dinner... As someone who likes their clam chowda a bit spicier, there's NOTHING better than Cheese-Its Tabasco flavored crackers in the chowda (OK, "chowder" for the rest of you!)

ARGH!

It's all those slight differences between American and British English...

In GB, people from the far east, i.e. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc... are collectively referred to as "Oriental," where as that would get an American imprisoned by the PC police.

In GB, people from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc, are known as "Asian."

A company I worked for a while back had (Hindu) Indian clients visiting to finalize a big deal. The boss took them to Ruth Chris Steakhouse.

Not a good move.

Well it is what the PC press use when they don't want to say "Muslim".

But "Asian appeatence" applies to every South Asian: Pakistanis, Indians, Nepalese, Bangladeshis, Ceylonese; who can also be Christian, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, who may eat pig (unless they are also Vegetarian*)







* Can also be a religion

I think the Brits should adopt the attitude of the spanairds, where pork is basically the national dish, as a poke in the eye to the former muslim invaders...
