Last year we reported on a Muslim man who complained about a school which passed out fliers inviting students to an Easter Egg hunt — actually claiming it violated the Constitution.
Now a sign even mentioning bacon is now insensitive to the Muslim community. But it’s what one business did in response that will really make you upset.
Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sponsored traffic sign that read, “YIELD for Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns.
The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report. WPTZ wrote that the woman who complained online called the sign “insensitive to those who do not consume pork.”
Here’s how the cowardly restaurant responded on Facebook:
Sneakers has since taken down their Facebook, but their Website is still up, HERE.
As The Federalist Papers says, spot-on:
The part I don’t understand is the restaurant owner claims one of the reasons the bacon sign was removed was over “safety concerns.” Did they think the Muslims in the community would riot and burn the business down? If that’s the reason they should not have done it.
Giving in to terror simply emboldens the terrorists!
The woman who was offended needs to get a grip, or perhaps move to an Islamic country that practices the sharia law she clearly wants.
Religious Jews also don’t eat bacon or pork. Yet, I just did a Lexis search of articles in the past 25 years of a Jew asking for any mention of bacon or pork to be removed from any sign. There is not even ONE. Yet this woman — in Vermont of all places — feels completely emboldened to demand this sign be taken down? She clearly does not understand our 1st Amendment traditions. Sadly, the store owner understands it even less.
