Vermont Restaurant Removes
Bacon Sign Due to Muslim
Opposition and Safety Concerns

Breitbart Texas, by Michelle Moons

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/24/2014 6:36:49 AM

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield 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

The nation has turned into a cowering wimp. Tell the muzzie to go back to her country of origin where I am sure she would be beheaded for even daring to speak out.

NH should post more bacon signs so the muzzies stay in Vermont.

Just as some wear garlic around their neck to ward off vampires, I was considering doing the same with bacon to repel muzzies, but then I would just eat it up. Darn.

James Foley was not given the option before his last meal.
Muslims try to impose their beliefs in increments.
Jews don´t eat pork either - did you ever hear of a Jew telling a restauranteur not to advertise or serve pork?
They assimilated- Muslims seek to colonize and control with Sharia Law in increments and raise "safety concerns" .
No appeasement- no incremental Enforcement of Sharia Law.

A sign? A sign?
A muslim is offended by a SIGN with "bacon" on it.
That person does not have to eat, touch, or even smell the bacon--but is offended? No, but the muslim is offended by what it sees.
Well I am offended by seeing muslims on the streets of the USA. And I am offended by Americans catering to muslims, as though theirs was a religion instead of a death cult heresy.

The sign isn’t what offends her – America and everything about it is what offends her.

I am a US expat who lives in Cyprus. The TV we have here comes via NileSAT and as such includes American, British, and Australian shows with Arabic subtitles. In all of the shows (especially the cooking shows) the words "bacon", "pork", and "Jew" (and also "gay" - they do show Modern Family) are bleeped out of the English version and I imagine are not translated at all into Arabic. Apparently even hearing these words is offensive to Muslims. Yet it is ok to show them cooking pork or bacon - go figure. And how odd is it that they air a show that includes a gay couple but they delete the word "gay"?

Oh, BTW, I am offended by tomatoes, lima beans, and liver. I demand that these items immediately be removed from my sight in any place I may ever go.

Hopefully Sneakers Bistro will find that far more people are offended than pleased by their action. You can’t please all the people all the time. Vermont has transformed from the Green Mountain State to the P-s-y state. I hate to say it, as a Vermonter since removed.

Sickening. This once vibrant nation is turning into a vanilla nightmare... a tyranny of the minorities. So sad, especially for the young who´ll never know and never even know what they should fight for...

We must all push back against this trend in small and large, organized and ad hoc ways at every opportunity. For every offended Muslim customer at this restaurant, there are dozens of quietly acquiescing others steadily losing their liberties.

Still another reason for my wife and I to vote with our feet. We plan to escape from "California-East" before the end of the year. We are Military transplants, but I have met many native Vermonter retirees who just can´t afford to live here any more. They have become fed up with the taxes, wasteful spending,restrictions,and overall PC environment. Not to mention an Obamacare clone developed by the same contractor, that doesn´t work any better than the Federal program!

The store-owner is afraid of Muslims and how they treat infidels. He made a calculated decision to bow to them, unlike the owners of Hobby-Lobby, Chick-Fil-A and other businesses who were hounded by the various special interest grievance groups.

Notice that Jews never object to bacon, pork or shellfish in public? Those foods are forbidden in the Old Testament and are not supposed to be eaten by those who keep Kosher.

Is America sick yet of Muslims´ demands that we practice their religion?

Not due to political correctness--only fear. We rolled over in the 60´s in fear of riots like Ferguson. Now, we fear the muzzies and their responses. Bombs and beheadings tend to do that. Liberals don´t believe in setting limits on behavior.

Yasser Tabbaa, a specialist on Islamic art and architecture, remembers taking many trips to a 13th-century shrine dedicated to the Imam Awn al-Din, in Mosul in northern Iraq. The building was one of the few to survive Mongol invasion, never mind the destructive effects of weather and time. And this shrine had a stunning vaulted ceiling, like a honeycomb. “It is a beautiful pyramidal tower at the edge of the Tigris,” said Mr. Tabbaa, who taught at New York University Abu Dhabi and lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. His heart fell this summer, however, when he saw an online video

PRINCETON, IND. — President Obama on Friday credited his administration´s policies with helping to boost the economy and said the recovery is "real ... steady and happening." Speaking at a steel plant outside Evansville, Ind., on "Manufacturing Day," Obama touted the unemployment rate, which on Friday fell to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest number in six years. The report said the economy added 248,000 jobs in September. Obama said the country is "on pace" for the strongest job growth since the 1990s and experiencing the longest period of uninterrupted growth in U.S. history. Still, he acknowledged that the

There was no indication that the new rules were related to that case. Growing international media interest in the outbreak that has killed nearly 2,000 people and infected 3,696 in Liberia has highlighted the challenges to the West African country´s healthcare system.

The clip, which is in English with Arabic subtitles, then shows Jihadi John stepping forward to cut Mr Henning´s throat before it cuts to black, then shows his body lying on the desert floor. In the footage, Mr Henning appears visibly thinner than in previous pictures, and has large

Some students are skeptical, though others are ´freaking out´. Typically at the start of October, freshman students like Quencey Hickerson, 18, would be preparing for their first Howard University homecoming. But on Friday, Hickerson and her fellow students were preoccupied with news of a possible case of Ebola virus being treated at the Howard University Hospital, which lies on the southern end of the Washington, D.C. school’s campus. Hickerson, who heard the news via social media, told TIME she was “shocked” by the news. “I didn’t expect [the virus] to spread so quickly,” Hickerson said.

ORONO — About 1,500 people are expected to attend a rally in Orono with first lady Michelle Obama, who’s stopping in Maine to support Democrat Mike Michaud’s gubernatorial bid. Obama and the six-term congressman will be joined by Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, at the event Friday at the Collins Center for the Arts at the University of Maine. The event begins at 3:30 p.m. The First lady is expected to speak at 5:05 p.m. Michaud is looking for a boost in a heated three-way race for the Blaine House that remains tight with just a

While Jack Cashill today focuses on why President Obama cannot be trusted on Ebola, Byron York of the Washington Examiner does a quick accounting of the president’s track record fully supports Cashill’s conclusion. On September 16, the president flew to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta to speak to the public on the disease with the reassuring and authoritative logo of the CDC behind his head. (That was also where the Secret Service allowed him to board an elevator and stand inches away from an un-vetted security contractor with loaded gun, who happened to have an arrest record, but

Unidentified sources told the news publication that three soldiers died of Ebola and others are in quarantine at the Edward Binyah Kesselley (EBK) Military Barracks. “All necessary precautions have taken to protect the soldiers,” said the source. “Those soldiers and family members were outside the Barracks when they got sick, but the Barrack is being quarantined and the following measures taken: That no soldiers leave the barracks, constant hand washing, no visitation from family members.” The disease struck the army after a female soldier returned after a vacation in Tubmanburg,

On Thursday, President Barack Obama said illegal immigrant DREAMers who come out of the shadows and demand legalization--often ahead of legal immigrants and those still waiting in line--represent what it means to be American. Speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Dinner, Obama promised to enact his executive amnesty by the end of this year and then said, "the young person who comes out of the shadows to demand the right to dream. That´s what America is about." "DREAMer is more than just a title, it´s a pretty good description of what it means to be an American," Obama said. Before

(Video) On Friday´s broadcast of MSNBC´s "Morning Joe," host Joe Scarborough took aim at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for his instance on attacking the billionaire Koch Brothers on a regular basis, but isn´t without fault himself. "[It is] sad and pathetic when somebody calls a person un-American especially when they are bigger offenders of the action he defines as un-American,” Scarborough said. Scarborough pointed to the fundraising prowess of Reid, whose so-called Senate Majority PAC dominates the charts on individual spending for the 2013-2014 with $32 million in expenditures, an $8 million advantage over the next closest competitor,

President Obama is not popular at this point in his presidency, even in a blue state like Minnesota. Our own Senator Al Franken repeatedly bristled as GOP candidate Mike McFadden cited Franken’s 97 percent voting record in support of Obama at their debate in Duluth earlier this week. Franken mocked the statistic but didn’t offer a correction. That’s because the statistic is correct and because any purported correction would be even more damning if it came from Franken. The 97 percent figure is a good one to use. It doesn’t come from a partisan source; it comes from Congressional Quarterly.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

While the content is vicious, angry and sure to tickle conservative journalists and pols, the writing is colorful, even entertaining.“A slapdash Secret Service detail isn’t what’s wrong with the White House — the real scandal is a President who is so complacent about protecting Americans,” the headline blares. Piers predicts that now that President Obama went on “60 Minutes” and distanced himself from U.S. national intelligence agencies on the rapid spread of ISIS, he’s guaranteed himself leaks to the media for the remainder of his

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
