Mosque Victim Of Bacon Attack

By Wyatt Earp | October 17, 2010

Evil felonious villains carried out a dastardly attack at an America mosque this week, after writing words in bacon on the sidewalk. Obviously, an all points bulletin needs to be issued for these war criminals, and a task force should be created to bring these evildoers to justice!

Or, you know, the members of the mosque could just pick up the bacon and dispose of it. Whatever’s easier.

When he first spotted the strange graffiti, Mushtaq Hussain thought it was a juvenile prank: Somebody had used bacon strips on a sidewalk in front of a Florence, S.C., mosque to spell out the words “PIG” and “CHUMP.”

Nationwide, polls show a growing ambivalence – or even anger – toward Islam among Americans, which has in part explained the opposition to a mosque near ground zero and mosques elsewhere, as well as the aborted mass burning of Korans by a Florida preacher. But subtler, more psychological attacks against Muslims have also become prevalent, say Muslim groups.

In those attacks, pork – which Muslims are forbidden to eat because it is considered unclean – is being used as a primary weapon, sent in packages to mosques, invoked in sharply worded letters, or, as in Florence, used to spell out literal messages.

I’m sorry, but calling this incident an “attack,” is absurd. Spelling out words in bacon is not an attack, and it’s not a hate crime. It is kind of funny, though. Just sayin’.

    Whoever thought a BLT could be considered a WMD?

    Here’s a thought: Rubber gloves. I wear them when there is something I don’t particularly like to touch.
    You pick up the bacon and throw it away and the morons are out the price of a pound of bacon. One pair of gloves outlasts X pounds of bacon. End of story.

    Bacon grenades…that would be another story!

    I am going to take an unpopular view point on this. Believe me I feel that a good portion of the world’s Muslim population could use a good carpet bombing, but this is America and you do not mess with somebody’s religion.

    Would you consider the painting of swastikas on a synagogue to not be an attack because it is just paint?

    Tolerating or encouraging this kind of behavior is bad for America and Americans.

    One case of insensitivity (building a mosque at ground zero) leads to another (bacon grafiti).

    This is what happens when you do something callous and stupid (building a mosque at ground zero), not taking into consideration others feelings.

    Tisk tisk, Wyatt. You’re a cop. You of all people should know if a White Christian perpetrates any sort of crime against a member of any “minority” group is automatically a hate crime. Especially when said “minority” is Muslim.

    If they had used turkey bacon, would it still be considered a hate crime?

    Turkey bacon? That would have been a crime against cholesterol!

    And a crime against my taste buds.

    Swastikas at a synagogue would not be equivalent to bacon at a mosque.

    Bacon at a synagogue would be the same as bacon at a mosque since both beliefs are the same regarding pigs being unclean.

    Bacon = unclean and an insult. No one has been killed by representatives wearing a symbol of bacon.

    Swastikas are symbolic of an attempt to irradicate an entire people. (Actual history of the swastika notwithstanding.)

    If you are going to speak up against the bacon, use like for like. Not attempted irradication vs blatant insult.


    Turkey bacon is a crime against food.

    My views on this whole thing? Next time, set up a coleman stove, pull out a cast iron skillet, and cook the bacon in their doorway. You get the point across and still get to eat the bacon.

    I’ve started my own business making landmines that look like prayer mats. So far we are doing well,prophets are going through the roof!! Better than Bacon take the piss out of them make them a Joke a laughing stock a Joke.

    Wow! I was “attacked” at breakfast today, and I didn’t even know it!

    Somehow, I prevailed. And it was delicious :P

    Not every muslim male, aged 18 – 45 is a terrorist, but every terrorist in modern times against the West has been a muslim male, age 18 – 45! Track records don’t lie! Bring out the Pork, Bacon, Pigs’ feet, Napalm and Nukes!

    A Jewish friend once told me, tongue firmly in cheek, that the whole point of Reform Judaism was to let Jews enjoy bacon too.

    Perhaps what we need is a little Reform Islam. You know, more bacon and a lot less craziness, misogyny and explosives.

    Kim, I agree it is not quite the same, but I see it as a slippery slope down the same road.

    DL474 I agree with you the Ground Zero mosque should be moved further away. But two wrongs do not make a right. Especially when the second goes against one of the founding principles of our country.

    And I agree with Jon, ajdshootist….. prophets are going thru the roof is hilarious.

    I was waiting to see if Randall was going to weigh in on this one. That should get things going.

    Ingineer, I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying one was caused by the other. Although I can see where the people who did the bacon incident are coming from. When one person commits an act of insensitivity then usually another one follows by those that oppose. I read a news article where this white lady moved into a black neighborhood and starting flying the confederate flag. She is Constitutionally able to do that, but obviously it’s not a wise decision and there has been some backlash. What do people who do things like this expect?

    Where is the outrage?

    RT – No kidding. Especially if it was extra crispy.

    LDIV – Our troops should dip their rounds in pork fat.

    Crankipants – Michelle “Health Nut” Obama always did.

    Proof – Frag grenades with Bac’O's!

    Rick – Fun for all ages!

    Ingineer66 – Puh-lease. Apples and oranges here. If someone spray-painted a mosque, I would be the first in line to cry foul. Bacon on a sidewalk is not an attack. Stop it.

    DL474 – But that’s the point. They spit on us at every turn. but we are supposed to be outraged by a faux “attack.”

    Raptor – True enough, but I don’t think a white person has been identified as the bacon terrorist . . . yet.

    Mrs. Crankipants – It would be a less-fat attack.

    Proof – Michelle Obama would be proud.

    Kim – They should have a “bacon in.” Fry it up across the street and give free goodness to the passersby.

    Ajdshootist – Personally, I would have no problem praying to bacon.

    Lou – You are a very lucky man!

    Watuschskie – Bacon versus IED’s. Which is the real weapon of terror?

    Wes S. – Never happen. Nice thought, though.

    Ingineer66 – And if that slippery slope finds people spray-painting mosques, I’m on board. Until then, you’re overreacting. This p.c. crap is getting ridiculous.

    DL474 – We’re supposed to sit here and take it, because that is the politically correct thing to do.

    JCM – It’s Mormons. Thus, no one cares. Nice, huh?
