Bacon found at NY Muslim celebration probed as possible hate crime
Yahoo! News ^ | 8/20/12 | Barbara Goldberg - Reuters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Authorities were investigating as a possible hate crime the discovery of uncooked bacon scattered on the grounds of a New York City park where Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, police said on Monday.

Festivities to mark the close of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, on Sunday had been publicized in local media and drew 1,500 participants to New Dorp Beach Park on Staten Island, said Cyrus McGoldrick, spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Organizers found uncooked bacon strewn about a small section of the park, New York City police said.

Religious restrictions prohibit Muslims from eating pork products.

"It's being investigated as a possible bias crime," a police spokeswoman said.

Yet... a gunman walking into FRC yelling about how He doesn’t like their policies... and silence. Nice. I love where this country is going.

Aren’t we putting the cart before the horse here? Shouldn’t we first declare Sharia the law of the land, prior to declaring bacon a hate crime?

And yet a girl gang raped by Muslims because they don’t like the way they are treated by “her people” in the US since 9/11 isn’t a hate crime.

This is where they’ve been pushing the Western countries, to where offending their sensibilities is a crime as much as it is in their countries.

I call their hate crime and raise a First Amendment. It was a protest against their influence over our political and legal system.

So a hate crime can be committed on religious grounds? Then what was piss-Christ? Also, no one was physically injured or even threatened with injury.

Where's the hate-crime?

Face it, all this hate crime silliness is the in that Muslims will use to try to take over America.

If it would have been cooked, I’m sure they could have brought some dogs in to clean it up.

Religious restrictions prohibit Muslims from eating pork products.

So, who was forcing them to eat it?

I suspect were they Jews, there'd be no such stink.

"Hate Crime" legislation is the gateway to tyranny.  And completely unConstitutional.  But who's adhering to the Constitution these days?  Not even the chief justice of the supreme court.

We need a complete routing of all communists and seditious traitors in our government.  Start with nationwide televised impeachments of public officials who have violated their oath of office to defend the Constitution.  Next on the docket, dissmiss all communist activist nutjob professors in all the higher insitutions of learning.  Put and end to the brainwashing of our poplualtion.  Only way I could ever see this ever happening would be in connection with a right wing military coup.  Yeah, it would be ugly, but neccessary.

It really is time to end all the PC sh1t right now. This is not America, this is fricking Orwell’s nightmare world.

I will say it now. I really do not care about offending muslims anymore. I do not care about offending women anymore, or gays, or blacks, or any other “special” “protected” class that makes people unequal because of arbitrary external features or behaviors.

This is terrible law, terrible concepts moral and legal, and it all has to end right freaking now. This is not everyone being equal under the law.

I drive a concrete mixer.

If I had to ever deliver concrete to a Moslem project at the very “least” I would dump several weeks of clean filtered bacon grease in my diesel fuel tank, oh and for youse folks who know little about diesels yes it will run nicely on clean bacon grease diluted.

Matter of fact I suggest anyone who does own a diesel to consider that idea. Just the grease, not congealed and no meat particles. And not during cold weather.

I know of a business locally a barbeque rib shack, the owner drivers a Ford PU and you can smell his truck coming a mile away, mouthwatering you might say.

be proud, be America, piss off a Moslem, sure the get upset and can be dangerous but so far we still outnumber them, let us keep it that way forever.

Seriously though. I could be walking through a public park innocently munching on a bag of barbecue pork rinds (delicious BTW), accidentally dropping a few now and again just like chips. Totally unaware that a pack of muzzies were soon going to show up and use the park for some reason, I could be charged for a "hate crime?" Really!!???

I have a two pound package of hickory smoked hate in the fridge as we speak.

Can the word be spoken?

Can such packages be sold in stores, or owned by returning vets?

Can one take such a package through the check-in at the airport? Can I even ask that question without being put on a watch list?
