When did British start meaning retarded?
I was gonna report it, but Nadz beat me to it: In Britian, the Dudley council (in a Tory area nonetheless) has banned all all work pictures and knick-knacks of novelty pigs and "pig-related items" because a muslim employee complained that she found it to be offensive. Among the items : A Piglet (from winnie the Pooh) Box tissue. Yes, people, Piglet is Haram. It's part of the super-conspiracy to make muslims like pork, or something. And the forces of "educated tolerance" and "cultural understanding" of course went right ahead and followed through without thinking on the piglet ban: A Headteacher in Yorkshire has banned books containing stories about pigs from the classroom in case they offend Muslim children.Guess they won't be reading the story of the three piggies and the Big Bad Wolf anytime soon. And if that's not enough, this stupid moron called Chris Doyle, who is the director of something called "the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding" is asking that the English flag be changed, because it's an "insensitive reminder" of the crusades. Doyle added that it was now time for England to find a new flag and a patron saint who is "not associated with our bloody past and one we can all identify with." Ok, let me be the first to say this to you England: Don't you fuckin dare change a thing. I am sorry, but this is bullshit. Imagine if someone sued muslims because the word "Jihad" or Allahu Akbar" offended them? Imagine if someone sued Turkey (which is secular mind you) for using the symbol of the cresecent on their flag, which brings also a bloody reminder of the Islmaic expansion wars, which i am sure not everyone back then was happy with. Would you support that? And does that mean no one can use the crescent again out of fear of being associated with it? Are we becoming this retarded? And I am sorry, but piglet offends muslims? Piglet? Pictures of Pigs? Since when? I have yet to meet a single muslim in Egypt who thinks a picture a pig is offensive. Au contraire. Egyptian muslims love pigs. That's their favorite nickname for the Jews, and on a good day, sometimes even the christians. But maybe that's the key to all this: British people need to start suing back. Women groups should start suing the Hijab and Niqab, cause i am sure it offends them. Victims of terrorist attacks by islamists should start suing Mosques that even mention the word "Jihad". Customers should sue Burger King to bring back that ice cream that had an inscription that in some way resembled the word "Allah" and then go buy it and eat it in front of the house of the dude who got BK to ban it in the first place. Hell, and the students who go to the same school with that Moron who insisted that going to school wearing the school Uniform instead of the Shiraz Qamiss violates her religious rights should sue the school for the right of wearing whatever the hell they liked or even going there naked. After all, they could decide to convert to the Nudadistic religion, which was founded by Egypt's own Big Pharaoh. My point is simple: Live and let live. You get offended by unislamic things, move to an islamic country. You want to wear Shiraz Qamiss to school, go to Pakistan. The cross on the flag offends you, move to Israel or Saudi Arabia. You don't like the image of pigs on mugs, well, go to a therapist you freak. You have pig-issues, probably a Pig Phobia. Just don't use Islam and muslims as your excuse; they both get exploited enough as it is.
