First the Islamophobes!
Next we have the radical right wing reactionaries that are so numerous down south of us!Same old, same old - don't you just get tired of no-one doing anything about this problem - how about something like this here, too?Can we kidnap this mayor and install him as Prime Minister or Chief Justice ???"PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK"A commercial promoting pork says: "PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK"The MAYOR REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CAFETERIA MENU and EXPLAINS WHY:Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb.The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why."Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate."Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and learn to live in Quebec. "They must understand that it is for them to change their lifestyle, not the Canadians who, so generously, welcomed them."Muslims must understand that Canadians are neither racist nor xenophobic. Canada accepted many immigrants before Muslims showed up (whereas the reverse is not true, in that Muslim states do not accept non-Muslim immigrants).""Just like other nations, Canadians are not willing to give up their identity or their culture."And, if Canada is a land of welcome, it's not the Mayor of Dorval who welcomes foreigners, but the Canadian-Quebecois people as a whole."Finally, they must understand that in Canada (Quebec) with its Judeo-Christian roots, Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must remain in the private domain."The municipality of Dorval was right to refuse any concessions to Islam and Sharia."For Muslims who disagree with secularism and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world, most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal arms in accordance with Sharia."If you left your country for Canada, and not for other Muslim countries, it is because you have considered that life is better in Canada than elsewhere. We will not let you drag Canada down to the level of those 57 countries.""Ask yourself this question - just once: "Why is it better here in Canada than where you come from?” "A canteen with pork on the menu is part of the answer."If you came to Canada with the idea that you will displace us with your prolific propagation and eventually take over the country, you should pack up and go back to the country you came from. We have no room here for you and your ideology.If you feel the same, forward it on. If not, hit the delete, and prepare to be displaced.
The American Taliban is a derogatory but often accurate term for American Christian fundamentalists. It was coined after the invasion of Afghanistan, when the term Taliban became a household word. It is used to draw parallels between Islamic fundamentalism and Christian fundamentalism.
The point of the phrase is to compare those who would make the United States into a country with a state religion, or inflict their religious views on others through government decree, to the Taliban government in Afghanistan, which was also a repressive theocracy.
A website dedicated to this phenomenon has many illustrative quotes. Here are some examples:
- "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war." -- Ann Coulter
- "With all due respect to those dear people, my friend, God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew." -- Bailey Smith
- "Don't use the word 'gay' unless it's an acronym for 'Got Aids Yet'" -- Bob Dornan
- "Sodomy is a graver sin than murder. – Unless there is life there can be no murder." -- David Trosch
- "American Veterans are to blame for the fag takeover of this nation. They have the power in their political lobby to influence the zeitgeist, get the fags out of the military, and back in the closet where they belong!" -- Fred Phelps
- "AIDS is a racial disease of Jews and Niggers, and fortunately it is wiping out the queers. I guess God hates queers for several reasons. There is one big reason to be against queers and that is because every time some white boy is seduced by a queer into becoming a queer, means his white bloodline has run out." -- J. B. Stoner
- "Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. You cannot serve two masters: you must pick -- God or Satan." -- Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore
