Bacon Tossing Will Now Land You In Prison

Yes you read that headline correctly – and unfortunately. The only conundrum for me here is this: is this story best placed under the heading of idiotic, loony, moonbat political correctness, or the triumph of creeping sharia? I guess it properly belongs under both headings.

When I first heard about this, it was so overwhelmingly incredible, bizarre and mind-numbing, that I assumed it could not be a true story. But with even the BBC now getting into the act and reporting it, I guess it sadly is true. However I am still almost left without words over this.

The story as one write-up has it goes like this:

It’s the UK - they bend over backwards towards to appease Islam.

I won't click through multiple blog layers to get to the story you're concealing, but if it's the one about the idiots smearing bacon on the mosque, vandalism is vandalism.

If someone did this to a synagogue, would you also be complaining?

Childish nonsense that solves nothing.

One click got me to the story.
People who threw bacon at a mosque and wrapped it around door handles were imprisoned.

And if it had been a synagogue, do you think prison terms would have been handed out? Especially in the UK.

That is the real point here.

And people in America who spray paint abuse on synagogues get jail time as well.

What's "conservative" about giving vandals a free pass, exactly?

What's "conservative" about morons sneaking around trying to provoke a confrontation?

Handing rhetorical ammunition to the enemy is stupid.

bacon tossing is not spray painting.

pick it up, throw it in the trash

I'm unaware of any recent synagogue vandalism in the UK where the vandals got off scot free.

Regardless, the law is the law.

These idiots put the authorities in a situation where leniency would likely have led to protests, even greater wastes of public resources, etc.

No, the entire point is to uphold the rule of law, not to excuse crimes, give partial justice, or to extract revenge over and above the letter of the law.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Interesting that they would prosecute this, but they look the other way when their little girls are sent back to the old country for a certain medical procedure (butchery) that will haunt them the rest of their lives.

Bacon tossing forbidden. Salad tossing encouraged.

jews aren’t breeding like rats using up welfare services, raping white british teens or beheading soldiers walking down the street and demanding everyone live under talmudic laws there.

muslims are.

that’s the difference.
