I can’t believe this woman actually won in getting the sign taken down.
This country’s government was formed with the notion that the minority must be protected. How then have we devolved so much that when a single crybaby gets their panties in a bunch rights begin getting stripped from everyone else?
What has me so worked up? Oddly enough it isn’t the gun grabbing zealots this time that try to deny a fundamental right because THEY don’t like it.
No, this time it is someone who took that same mentality and forced a local restaurant to remove a sign it was allowed to place in a median because that restaurant PAID a donation for its upkeep.
The Sneakers Bistro got its pick of a sign to stake into a prime traffic median along Winooski’s Main Street after dolling up the bed with annual flowers for the city of Winooski’s “Operation Bloom” volunteer program.
What was so offensive about Sneakers Bistro’s sign?
It had the word BACON in it.
But leave it to one curmudgeon to make a holy war out of it.
In this case, a local Muslim woman flew into a fit of rage that a sign DARE say bacon because SHE doesn’t eat pork. She claimed that, as a vegan Muslim, she was personally offended by the sign and that it was insensitive to other people who don’t eat pork.
I must have missed something…at what point was Sneakers Bistro shanghai-ing people and forcing bacon and pork products down their gullets?
The fact that this intolerant bacon hater is so hyper-sensitive that she can’t even SEE the word bacon without being personally offended is pathetic.
