In this age of Barack Hussein Obama’s enlightened admiration of all things related to Islam, we are being reminded on a daily basis that the followers of Islam have a whole list of sensibilities that everyone must try not to offend. Muslims hate many things besides Christians and Jews and every other religion as well as their icons like crosses and statues of Buddha and the Star of David. Among the things Muslims hate most are dogs and pigs. In Toronto, Canada a man was arrested last week by the local police for walking his dog in a public park after the police received complaints from some Muslims who were praying there. He was charged with offending Islam which is considered a hate crime in Canada. Now, in New York City, the police were called to investigate another hate crime against Muslims when someone left some bacon strips in a city park. Seems that Muslims had gathered there to celebrate the Islamic end-of-Ramadan ceremony. But it wasn’t a hate crime after all because someone has claimed responsibility by saying he had some spoiled bacon in his car and he left it out for the scavengers like the opossums and the raccoons and sea gulls to eat before the Muslims got there.
I wonder if anyone living in Cincinnati, Ohio, the big city to our north, will be concerned about any future complaints by their Muslim population over one of their most popular annual festivals called The Flying Pig Marathon? During this festival large statues of pigs are decorated by artists and placed around the city and later sold to raise money for charity. How does the Muslim population feel about walking down the sidewalks and passing these horrific statues that symbolize so much that they hate?
Actually, the mid-west region is noted for several pig related events due to the large pork production in the region. Cincinnati is even known as “porkopolis” and also celebrates the annual Big Pig Gig. And the ever-popular pig is celebrated as far south as Lexington. Kentucky with their “Pigs In The City” but so far none of these celebrations have been known to offend anyone’s sensibilities.
Back in New York City, with their much larger Muslim population, the case of the bacon hater caper even got the Police Commissioner involved. Pamela Geller posted the news on her web site, Atlas Shrugs, with this information.

A Break in the Case of The Great Bacon Hate Caper
Yesterday I posted on the shocking, yes shocking, bacon investigation by Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly and the NYPD. Muslims who gathered in a city park found bacon scattered on the ground. And all hell broke loose. I wonder if the JTTF was called in as well. Islamic supremacists have turned our lines of defense into sharia enforcers. This irrational fear of bacon is now part of law enforcement.
“This has been determined to be a bias event on the part of our Hate Crimes Task Force,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters, including WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb.
Of all the troubles in the world it’s astounding that this is an issue, and one so many seem to up in uproar about…bacon on a field.
“I had put the bacon there. It was going bad in my trunk and I put it out for the scavengers like the opossums and the raccoons and sea gulls, and I did not intend for that to cause anybody any problems..
“Anonymous Caller takes responsibility for Ramadan bacon incident on Staten Island” Staten Island Live August 22, 2012
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — An anonymous caller is taking credit for Sunday morning’s possible hate crime at a New Dorp Beach field where morning Ramadan prayers were scheduled, claiming in a message to the Advance that he been discarding spoiled bacon when he left it on the field.
“Hi, Deborah. [The caller is referring to Advance news reporter Deborah Young.] This is– I was reading the article about the horrible incident of bacon and Muslims in the park and I wanted to let you know that is not my intention,” said the male caller, in a 9:20 a.m. message left on a reporter’s voice mail Tuesday. He stops short of saying his name.
“I had put the bacon there. It was going bad in my trunk and I put it out for the scavengers like the opossums and the raccoons and sea gulls, and I did not intend for that to cause anybody any problems.
“It was not any (inaudible) anti-Muslim act, and I did not want to offend anybody in way. Thank you and have a good day.”
The Advance has informed the NYPD of the message, though a spokeswoman for Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Paul Browne’s office declined to discuss its content except to say that it’s under investigation.
“This incident is being investigated by the hate crimes task force. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Any calls will be kept confidntial,” the spokeswoman said.
