One of the best things about living in a free country is that there are a lot of choices for citizens to make their own decisions, unlike in the Middle East where many refugees are escaping from. One of these is a wide array of restaurants to choose from to meet your taste and dietary restrictions.
The problem with many refugees is that they don’t want to assimilate into the American culture, they want to take it over by imposing their ways and beliefs on others who don’t want any part of it. When things don’t go their way, they wage war.
This recently happened with a Decatur, Alabama Mc Donald’s restaurant after a Muslim family walked inside to get some greasy grub and saw what was going on that didn’t agree with their religion.
Mc Donald is about American as it gets and the furthest thing from Islam as possible, considering their standard fair isn’t exactly halal compliant. Although there are items on the menu that Muslims can eat, sometimes mistakes can happen. In fact, anyone who has eaten at Mc Donalds has probably received the wrong order more than once.
While it’s an inconvenience and annoying, most well-adjusted humans simply let an employee know they got the wrong food and get their right order in return. This Muslim family didn’t handle the oversight this way at all, as they felt it was a “hate crime” against them rather than a minimum wage worker’s slip up.
Within the restrictions of foods that cannot be consumed by Muslims, is bacon. Pork is considered to be “unclean” meat. So, when some was accidentally slipped into the family’s burgers they ordered, they pitched a massive fit and called on CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) to demand an investigation into this alleged “intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry.”
Let’s not forget that it’s not uncommon for Muslims to make up fake hate crimes for attention, so perhaps that should be investigated before wasting too much time on if they were racially attacked with bacon. However, war was still waged and it’s getting rather ugly for McDonald’s.
Khaula Hadeed, head of the Alabama chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), called the incident “an intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry.”
If this really was done intentionally, it may have been insensitive, silly, obnoxious, and even cruel, but it is not a crime (except perhaps under Sharia). To offend Islam is a crime under Sharia, and to insult Muslims constitutes “Islamophobia” according to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
One cannot say beyond a reasonable doubt that it was “an intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry,” as Khaula Hadeed claims.
In America, one is still innocent until proven guilty. Hadeed has indicted the individual who placed the bacon into the sandwiches already, attributing intent when in fact the intent is not known.
The McDonald’s employee may have thought that bacon went into the chicken sandwiches. Or he or she may even have wanted to pull a prank on the Muslims, which was insensitive, but still not an “intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry.”
Whoever did this should be reprimanded by McDonald’s if it was done in order to enrage some customers, but Khaula Hadeed is trying to use the incident in service of CAIR’s usual victimology subterfuge. Now McDonald’s will be fighting off accusations of “racism,” “Islamophobia” and discrimination.
It’s important to note that the piece of bacon wasn’t a full strip, it was about the size of an erasure tip in one of them. It’s easy enough to pick this off or get a new sandwich without calling in the discrimination police in to make a crime out of at worst a stupid prank.
“It seems like a big uproar over a small piece of bacon,” Downtrend reported. “Would Allah really be so upset if a believer inadvertently ate it that they would be damned? It doesn’t seem like a very forgiving religion if so but that’s just my personal opinion.”
This is less about the bacon and more about trying to make Muslims in America look like a persecuted people so they can usher in more rights for their religion.
