Piglet Still not Free!

For those who don't know, another of the PC things going on in Britain, a city council banned just about anything related to pork being on display for fear of offending muslims....

(This is the same Europe where 250lb men regularly wear speedos... now that's offensive!)

From Lost Budgie....

Dudley Council Backing Down over Piglet Ban? Not

Maybe. A little bit. Sort of.
Dudley Council members in Britain had previously
banned toy pigs and other pig-related items in
municipal offices as a result of a single complaint
from a Muslim. Among the banned items were piggy
banks, novelty pig calendars and a tissue box
featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.
Now, the same Council leaders say they will not accept
"extreme forms of political correctness" - but neither
have they rescinded the ban. The Council is going to
have "an urgent review of the procedures."
"Urgent review" is not a victory for Piglet.
Also, if "extreme forms of political correctness" are
not acceptable, the Council position seems to be that
"MILD forms of political correctness" are acceptable.
The war over Dhimmitude still rages - and there has
been no victory yet won in Dudley Council.
Elsewhere in Britain, England's St. George's flag is
still banned from the workplace as being "offensive"
to Islamists. The Battle of Burger King was lost to a
surrender - not a defeat. The Union Jack is still
under attack as being "offensive" to Muslims.
Islamists have threatened to destroy a one hundred
year old statue of a wild boar if it is repaired.
"Winne the Pooh" and "Charlotte's Web" have been
banned from British schools as being "offensive to
In Canada, some want to replace Ontario's flag because
of it's Christian origin.
In the United States, a woman was fired for eating a
bacon sandwich at work - "offends Muslims".
To paraphrase one of Lost Budgie's favourite leaders
as he spoke on November 10, 1942:
"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of
the end. Neither is it the end of the beginning.
The Free Piglet! Campaign Must OINK On!"

If I were British, I would say to the Muslims who want the pigs out:

"Thank you for visiting our island and please don't let the boar hit you on the way out!"

Good post.

Yes, let's all appease the Muslims, shall we, while we do everything possible to offend Christians!

Makes me want to scream in frustration! Remember the movie "Ship of Fools"? I think they made land and propogated!

Thanks for visiting my blog and the e-mail. I'll get on my BR soon.

This issue with the pig thing is absurd. I'm hoping that citizens everywhere see it as such. Nice post.

I saw a woman in a burka, solid black with just a slit for eyeholes in Wal-Mart last week. She SMELLED to high heavens, and I just loathed even being behind her in line, let alone think of what she may have been handling in the store.

Now THAT'S offensive to me.

Think I'll carry a can of spam with me and haul it out like a cross to a vampire if I see her again.
