Given that it is statistically a certainty that everyone has breathed a molecule that was exhaled by Julius Caesar as he died, it is dead certain that you’ve breathed many a molecule exhaled by millions of pigs, living and dead. So this NIMBY (Not In Muslim Back Yards) protest is as arrogant an attempt to advance sharia as any ignorant residential association has ever caved to. Burning pig waste is the least of Islamic concerns about contact with tiny bits of swine. This is a populist manifestation of the politics of establishing the World Caliphate.
Like every other being, these Muslims are already PERMEATED with pork effluvia. Idiots. Damned, too, from what they say.
When I suggested it would be the dust from the manufacture and transport of pork rinds causing this protest in the US, I wasn’t serious. These UK Muslims apparently are serious. Worse, the local governing authority is all atwitter to appease:
[Coton Park Residential] Association spokesperson Grant Scott said: “Several families have complained because of the smell of the pork, and also if the factory is cooking with it, pork particles and odour could rain down on them from the chimney at some point.
…A group of Muslims have opposed plans for a pet food factory to be built as possible pork emissions will violate their religious rights.
Now, here is a slope we slipped right down all unawares. When did a religious obligation become a religious right enforced on others? The UK did not seem to accept any form of this argument in the time its troops spent in Northern Ireland.
Butchers Pet Care could shelve plans for a factory in Coton Park, near Rugby, because angry Asian families have complained to their residents’ association about pork smells drifting into their garden.
Note: This is a group, if you believe UK polls, of whom a substantial number are quite comfortable with the “flash cook” suicide bomber recipe for toasting infidels. This raises two related points, 1) suicide bombings shower you in infidel chunks, bits and gasses, 2) humans are not AKA “long pig” for nothing – the savory odor of even a briefly roasted infidel is reminiscent of a luau.
Muslim residents in the area also claim the pork will effectively “rain down” on their homes and gardens after the factory’s 100ft chimney has pumped the meat extracts into the atmosphere.
The Coton Park Residential Association said they have received complaints from Muslims – who are directed to not eat pork by the Qur’an – and are taking the matter very seriously.
One family who live less than 100 yards from the proposed factory, but who did not wish to be identified, said: “A significant proportion of meats used in the pet foods processes are pig meat.
“Our religion expressly forbids us to consume pig meat in any form.
“Because of the way in which this meat material will leave the factory and give that the area can be ‘rained upon’ we will be consuming pork via inhalation of this ‘rain’.
“Not only that but our clothes will be contaminated by pork.”
Mind contamination is obviously not at issue.
Another family from the Coton Park housing estate said: “The owners of the proposed factory do not dispute the claim that meat extracts of pork will be pumped into the atmosphere via a 100ft chimney.
“They have said there will not be any chemical treatment proposed to treat the meat extracts before they leave the factory.”
“Chemically treated” pork is exempt from the strictures? Well, burning is a chemical reaction. Problem solved. Except burning animal parts doesn’t seem to really have been a problem in the first place. Emphasis mine.
A statement from Butchers Pet Care said: “The majority of our natural products are beef and poultry.
“Pork ingredients account for less than 10% of our range.
“At Coton Park we plan to introduce state-of-the-art odour extraction through the chimney stack.
“An environmental impact report has already concluded that emissions at the proposed Coton Park site should not have an adverse impact on air quality and odour levels.
“We would like to reiterate that we do not burn any animal materials.”
… [Association spokesperson Grant Scott said,] “It was something we hadn’t taken on board before but it’s definitely important and is a very delicate issue.
“If Muslims are unhappy about it, then Jews may complain for the same reason, and Hindus may complain because of their beliefs about cows being sacred animals.”
And then we’d all be forced into vegetarianism. Sounds just like the University of Michigan defending the installation of Muslim footbaths as a public safety issue.
Politicians don’t normally invite the next set of complaints, so here Coton Park is trying to obfuscate the fact that they are giving special attention to Muslim protests by dragging in other religions who have not protested. They forgot Rastafarians.
They can’t even seem to gather the proper level of indifference in Britain anymore. Keep a quivering upper lip, Coton Park Residential Association. I will make one suggestion, however, change your name to Coton Residential Association Park.
