(Tea Party 247) – Buckle up, folks, we’re about to get “Islamophobic.”
You know the reason that everyone is so dang scared of offending Muslims, and not afraid of offending Christians or Jews?
Because some Muslims, yes, just some Muslims and certainly not all, but some Muslims literally blow things up or shoot people down when they get offended.
Just try drawing a picture of Muhammad to publish in a European newspaper.
So keep this in mind when you consider the following.
Burger King in South Africa has opted to drop the word “ham” from their “hamburgers” to avoid offending Muslims.
And yes, this is a real thing.
The “Double Spicy Hamburger” is soon to become a “Double Spicy Burger” while the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” will be “Triple Burger with Cheese,” and a “Hamburger King Jr” on the children’s menu will be the “Kids Burger.”
The company, based in Miami, Florida, said that the word was being taken out for the sake of being “more respectful of Muslim customers.”
What’s particularly humorous about this change is that the name “hamburger” comes from a city in Germany, called Hamburg, where the dish originated.
It has nothing to do with ham.
The company did admit that its South Africa chain would be losing their “halal” certification because of popular demand for their sandwiches to include bacon.
I would think that would be far more offensive to a Muslim than a word that has the sound “ham” in it.
Do they really think they can please both Muslims and fans of bacon in the same fiscal quarter?
Only bacon fans tend not to blow things up when they’re upset.
