Vermont: Restaurant ad for bacon removed after Muslim claimed it offended her

The sign said “Yield Sneakers Bacon”: i.e., yield to the allure of the delicious bacon at Sneakers Bistro. But in the end it was the operators of Sneakers who yielded. For them, “diversity” means making the world a bit less diverse, by yielding to the Islamic supremacist demand that Infidels must conform their behavior to Muslim sensibilities. Remember the ironclad and ever-reinforced principle: in Muslim countries, non-Muslims must change their behavior to avoid offending Muslims. And in non-Muslim countries, non-Muslims must change their behavior to avoid offending Muslims.



“Advertisement removed after resident expresses offense,” by Hannah McDonald, WPTZ.com, August 23, 2014 (thanks to JJ):


WINOOSKI, Vt. —A sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displayed the words “Yield Sneakers Bacon” until Friday morning. The bistro owners took it down.

It got there as part of “Operation Bloom.”

A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word “bacon” on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.

It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.

The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings.

“It’s nice that they were respectful enough to take it down,” said Caleb Wiley an area resident, “but I also think they shouldn’t have, or had to at any right.”

Other Winooski residents joined the conversation, and online too. One post reads the word “bacon” is not offensive. It’s something that describes food.

Winooski’s city manager spoke on behalf of the city. She said:

“The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable. It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation. The City has to pay attention to a lot of factors while acting within what we can regulate,” said Katherine “Deac” Decarreau.

Others recognize it’s a complicated issue, too.

“I respect her religion and her right to believe what she wants but I’m pretty sure the first amendment extends to bacon and the selling of it.”

Sneakers’ owners say their goal is to provide a joyful place for the entire community.

The Winooski Islamic Community Center was not available for comment.

Where does the right to not be offended come from?

I am offended by overweight women in yoga pants. Where do I register my complaint?

Sorry, Luis. You haven't an asana to stand on. The wearing of yoga pants is a women's health issue.

The wearing of yoga pants and free contraception shall not be infringed. It's right there in the Bill of Rights.
Some #NeverTrumpers are like the pockets of Japanese who didn't know the war was over

I thought for sure bacon was covered under the first amendment.

If you're more outraged by bacons than beheadings, you might be a nutcase.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

This is obviously a Democrat supported, funded, and orchestrated, "War on Bacon!".
 
The Democrat must be held accountable for this in November.

I'll bet a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich that her true identity remains confidential, too!   :whistle:

That sounds like a Jeff Foxworthy joke..
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."
