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.
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.”
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.
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.
