obama bans pork in Federal prisons to accommodate growing Muslim population

Barack Obama has banned pork from Federal prisons:

The nation’s pork producers are in an uproar after the federal government abruptly removed bacon, pork chops, pork links, ham and all other pig products from the national menu for 206,000 federal inmates.

The ban started with the new fiscal year last week.

Why?

The Bureau of Prisons, which is responsible for running 122 federal penitentiaries and feeding their inmates three meals a day, said the decision was based on a survey of prisoners’ food preferences:

They just don’t like the taste of pork.

Sure. Prison bureau spokesman Edmond Ross said pork was becoming more expensive, “although he did not provide specifics.”
Uh huh.

It’s probably the Jews:

Observant Muslims and Jews are forbidden to eat pork, and the prison system has long made accommodations for them by providing alternatives to pork and halal and kosher foods. Ross declined to say whether there has been an increase in Muslim or Jewish inmates in recent years and whether that may have factored into the survey responses.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper lets the pig out of the bag:

“In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the country’s largest Muslim civil rights advocacy group. “We hope it’s not an indication of an increasing number of Muslims in the prison system.”

Then you know it is. Prisons have become breeding grounds for Islamic jihad recruits:

When it comes to spreading the message of Islam, America’s imprisoned are proving to be Jihad’s most fertile ground. For decades Muslim outreach has gained a firm grip on the most disenfranchised of our Nation. Islamic practitioners are selling redemption through conversion to desperate and impressionable Black, Hispanic and women inmates in American prisons at alarming rates.

U.S prison populations present an easy target of opportunity for Islamic radicalization of America. Prison life is not easy and the old adage “safety in numbers” is motivating many of the incarcerated to turn to the protections and rehabilitative message preached by Wahhabi-trained Imams. Some studies suggest that as much as 20% of the U.S. prison population is turning to Islam.

Inmates are an ideal candidate for Islamic conversion. Al-Qaeda training manuals discovered in Europe encourage the recruitment of prisoners and recommend playing on the inmate’s anger and frustration with the non-Islamic society. Imams are counseling prisoners to accept the teachings of Islam and the rehabilitative cleansing it can provide. With Islamic conversion the prisoner is freed of his transgressions and finds a new self.

Muslims have become a “very significant” portion of the prison population. The growth of prison-radicalized Muslims continues unabated:

The statistics are staggering, and woefully out of date. One out of three African-American inmates in U.S. prisons convert to Islam while incarcerated.

This statistic is no longer limited to African-Americans in prison. The Huffington Post reported an estimated 35,000 – 40,000 inmates convert to Islam each year, and that 15 percent of the total U.S. prison population or 350,000 inmates are Muslim.

This is more than 18 times the national representation of Muslims in America, reported to be 0.8 percent. Prisons are churning out converts to Islam who are taught they are righteously entitled to control the religion, speech, and dress of family, co-workers and strangers.

The country is being invaded from within as well as from without. It’s bad enough that Obama kowtows to Islam everywhere, but it is pathetic to kowtow to the Muslim prison population and it is an indicator of a growing danger to America. The Washington Post thinks it’s great that there’s a burgeoning growth in radical Islamists in US prisons.

Political correctness rules.

    Which is cheaper:

    a) maintaining segregated food storage, preparation, and serving operations to prevent pork products from cross-contaminating the regular facilities, and constantly defending the Bureau of Prisons from civil rights complaints of litigious prisoners; or

    b) simply eliminating pork from prison menus

    Obviously, this is a rhetorical test–one you may fail if you lack the capacity for reason, or are suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome.

    Apparently, if you are an inmate with money, you can BUY your own ham, bacon, sausages, and pork.

    But the economic excuse for getting pork out of the prison diet is bogus.
    Pound-for-pound beef is MUCH more expensive than pork.
    Chicken is the cheapest.
    Certain times of the year ham can be less than $0.70/pound…..the cheapest meat on the market.
    Turkey can be really cheap certain times, too.
    So, the economic excuse is cover for pleasing Muslim prisoners.

    You seem to forget that there is also a significant percentage of inmates that are jewisdh In fact there is one Federal prison Otisville NY that has a Kosher kitchen and the number of Jews is certainly fewer than the number of muslims.@mos 8541:
    If you are a trained sniper scout maybe you should be over killing ISIS instead of just posting. Apparently 10s of thousands have volunteered to join ISIS but very very few seem to volunteer to fight it

    Ummm, interesting. The number of American Jews is greater than the number of American Muslims, yet Muslims have a high incarceration number than Jews?

    What happened to the meme “Religion of Peace?” Seems those Muslims are not so peaceful that they are getting thrown into federal prisons.

    Apparently 10s of thousands have volunteered to join ISIS but very very few seem to volunteer to fight it

    Why are you not volunteering to fight ISIS? Do you think they would not cut your head off because you are a liberal?

    Prison isn’t meant to be vacation. It is meant to be punishment.
    Muslims don’t like pork? Fine. Let them starve themselves, or learn to behave in a civil fashion, stop committing crimes and avoid a return to prison.

    None of the muslim prisoners we captured during Operations Desert Storm , Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom gave a damn whether the food we gave them to eat had pork in it, because they ate it all. I don’t give a damn about their food preferences while they are in prison. If they don’t eat, they can starve.

    When the muslim men and the new disenfranchised from their own society men who join Islam to be heads of families, go up against the self exterminating feminists who have no men who want to bother with them, who will win?

    gonna be interesting…

    @Reem: and of course we never did that for jewish criminals, did we? will we now have two refrigerators and insure tht they comply with kosher like they are now doing for halaal?

    @Reem: How about this; stay out of prison or you just might see some bacon served for breakfast.

    @john: You think Jews in prison is a new phenomenon? Obviously, this has been accommodated up till not. But, accommodating Muslims is not enough; we must BOW to Muslims.

    Agreed. One menu, take it or leave it, consisting of whatever was cheapest at the time of purchase while still meeting nutritional guidelines.
    Maybe blend it all- dinner, dessert, whatever- into one loaf so that no one could know what’s in it.
    If you don’t like the menu, don’t do the crime.
    Maybe then Muslim leaders would tell their followers, “You can’t eat pork, so don’t do anything which might get you jailed.”
    Prison is supposed to be punishment, not a catering service.
    What’s next? Repositioning prison toilets so that they don’t face towards Mecca?

    Which is cheaper, pamper criminals or let them starve if they don’t eat what’s given to them?

    It isn’t difficult unless you have an islamophilla complex.

    Ah…It’s not ‘banned.’ You loony tbaggers will believe anything.

    Well, if this is the reason they are doing it, it’ll be struck down long before it hits SCOTUS. The feds cannot favor one religion over another. That’s the true meaning of the religion clause in the first amendment. Not no religion, just no federally sponsored or favored religion.
    *Edit to add:
    If there needs to be a prison where halal food is served, we have that. It’s called Gitmo.

    Yesterday this letter was sent:

    Dear Director Samuels:

    I am writing to express my concerns regarding the decision made by the Federal Bureau of Prisons to remove all pork products from federal prison menus. Although this decision apparently was made several months ago, it was only made public upon the start of the new fiscal year.

    According to a spokesman for the Bureau of Prisons, the decision was based on a survey of prisoners’ food preferences that reflected that pork has been the “lowest-rated food” by inmates for a number of years.

    To corroborate the validity of the claim that prisoners indicated a lack of interest in pork products, I am requesting copies of the prisoner surveys and responses that were used to support the determination to no longer serve pork in federal prisons. Additionally, the spokesman indicated that pork had been the lowest rated food, “for several years.” Please supply the surveys and responses dating back as far as prisoners may have indicated their dislike for pork products. In addition, please provide a line item description of the costs incurred to conduct each survey performed.

    The Bureau of Prisons’ spokesman indicated that pork was expensive to provide. Please provide any economic evaluations the Bureau of Prisons has relied on that detail the cost of pork as compared to beef, chicken, and non-meat products such as tofu and soy products.

    The United States produces upwards of 92 percent of its own pork. Alternative products may be more likely to be imported. The pork industry is responsible for 547,800 jobs, which creates $22.3 billion in personal incomes and contributes $39 billion to the gross domestic product. The United States is the world’s largest exporter of pork, and the third largest producer of pork. This unprecedented decision to remove pork from all federal prisons will have consequences on the livelihoods of American citizens who work in the pork industry.

    I am requesting the Federal Bureau of Prisons to answer my questions and to provide the surveys and any data that was used when making this sweeping decision no later than November 2, 2015.

    Please send your responses and any questions to my Committee staff at (202) 224-5225. Thank You.

    Sincerely,

    Charles E. Grassley
    Chairman

    Today the Washington Post reports Pork is back on the menu in all US prisons!

    This is blatent violation of separation of church and state or Mosque and state and should be challenged in the courts. Barack is accommodating one religion (cult) over the others. That is unconstitutional.

    All I am asking is for the truth. I can’t find any source taking responsibility for this decision. Very convenient to blame Obama and/or the Muslims. Not a fan of either, but I find this entire thing very politically suspicious.

    It could have something to do with “pink slime” which is making a comeback as a beef additive. For some (???) reason the USDA had approved it as an additive without being labeled. With the controversy generated ABC investigative reporting all plants were closed down due to the public outcry. Now at least one plant has reopened. Maybe Obama’s USDA feels it owes the finely textured beef product cartel something and are using it in federal prisons. Meanwile I am going to read the fine print on the beef products I purchase.

    @Ed: All you gotta do is grind your own ground beef to avoid that slime.
    If you trust your butcher….DON’T!!!!…. he often labels beef as ”ground sirloin,” or ”ground round.”
    Sadly, you cannot trust these labels.
    Grind it yourself.
