What is amazing about this story is the amount of official attention it got. Yesterday we saw the New York City Police Commissioner commenting on it and announcing that it was a “bias event.” Today it seems otherwise, although I am sure more taxpayer money will be expended in order to find this caller and interrogate him in order to make sure he’s not just trying to cover his “Islamophobic” tracks.
It is also illustrative of the Islamic supremacist avidity to find hate crimes against themselves, so as to portray themselves as victims and deflect attention away from jihad activity, that they see bacon on the ground in a park and think “Hate crime!” instead of “Some guy is feeding the animals.”
Meanwhile, genuine acts of hate, such as the ongoing vandalism of our AFDI Islamorealism ads in New York, goes ignored by police officials and is celebrated by the New York Times.
“Caller: Bacon was for animals, not anti-Muslim act,” from the Associated Press, August 22 (thanks to all who sent this in):
NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City newspaper says it received an anonymous call from a person claiming to have discarded spoiled bacon in a park where Muslims had scheduled Ramadan prayers.
The caller said he was putting it out for seagulls and raccoons to eat, not as an anti-Muslim statement.
The Staten Island Advance ( http://bit.ly/ReDRtS ) said the message was left Tuesday on a reporter’s voicemail.
The caller said “It was not any … anti-Muslim act, and I did not want to offend anybody.”
The NYPD is investigating the incident as a possible hate crime. It was informed of the call but declined to discuss it….
That’s not surprising, because they have egg on their face. With a side of bacon.
