This is Our Town! This is Our Pork!

The incident below reminds me of the issue of the Confederate flag here in the USA. People are offended by the Stars and Bars; there’s no doubt about it. Sometimes severely offended. But the police can’t come to your house and tell you to take your Confederate battle flag down. Maybe in San Francisco or Ann Arbor, but not here in Virginia. Not yet.

It’s my choice whether or not to celebrate my Confederate heritage by displaying the flag. As it happens, most of my neighbors are black. They would not view it the same way I do. Some of them would no doubt be offended, or hurt, or angry, or some combination thereof, by my flying the flag. Since I like my neighbors (most of them, anyway), I choose not to fly the Confederate flag, as a courtesy to them.

But it’s my choice. No political authority tells me not to do it.

Thank God for the First Amendment.

It’s not the same in the city of Chemnitz, in eastern Germany. There the police can tell you whether or not you can serve pork. The rule seems to be this: Pork is allowed to be cooked if no one can easily tell if what you are cooking is in fact pork. That means no head, tail, trotters, or clearly visible pig shape. And the police will come and check to make sure your pork barbecue abides by those rules.

It’s not clear whether the following video is from the same incident described in Jihad Watch last month, but it seems likely.

Sharia Germany: Police stop pork barbecue for fear of offending Muslims, Muslim migrants attack participants

by Robert Spencer
June 13, 2019

According to Searchlight Germany, “After the barbecue, which was organised as a protest against the ‘interreligious Eid festival’, participants were attacked by two Syrians and attacked with a knife.”

It’s clear who is in charge in Germany now. How long will it be before Merkel’s government, seeing consumption of pork as evidence of “right-wing extremism,” bans it altogether?

“Pig triggers police action at barbecue by right-wing extremists,” translated from “Schwein löst Polizeieinsatz bei Grillfest von Rechtsextremen aus,” Lepiziger Volkszeitung, June 10, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):

The far-right group Pro Chemnitz organized a barbecue in protest. It was directed against Muslims who were celebrating the end of their month of fasting Ramadan. In the end, the police intervened.

The extreme right-wing group Pro Chemnitz launched a police operation with a pig. As a protest against an event for the Muslim Sugar Festival at the end of the month of fasting Ramadan, Pro Chemnitz had invited people on Saturday to a barbecue, where a piglet landed on the grill.

Whole piglet was not allowed

However, the local authorities had not allowed them to grill a whole piglet, which is why officials intervened, as the Chemnitz police department announced. The suckling pig had to be disassembled.

Pro Chemnitz itself wrote on Facebook that they had “strictly” adhered to the guidelines: no whole animals and no single pig heads could be displayed. The piglet had neither legs nor tail. Believing Muslims do not eat pork. This is what the action of Pro Chemnitz were targeting…

Video transcript:

00:10   So Chemnitz on a [unintelligible] day,
00:15   right now in Chemnitz there’s decisive examination being done to see —
00:20   the police are verifying if the pork is pork, since it’s [already] cut into pieces.
00:25   Whether this complies with the decision is the question right now.
00:50   [starting chant] This is OUR town!
00:55   [chanting] This is OUR town! This is OUR town!
01:00   This is OUR town! This is OUR town!
01:05   This is OUR town! This is OUR town!
01:11   This is OUR pork! OUR pork!

  1. Wow – we’re now a whole Islamist world away from the days of the Marranos (secret Jews) boiling pork in their homes to fend off the Crusaders…

  2. The architects of “de-Nazification” at the end of WWII must hang their heads in shame (the Americans anyway). What a dismal failure.
    All that was eradicated was any sense of national or cultural self respect, which pleased the communists to no end. The sense of mindless obedience to authoritarianism is alive and well, again something that can only please the left.
    The free people of Europe must intellectually break free of the false trope that authoritarianism is a function of the Right and recast it, correctly, as a feature of the Left. They should wear the epithet “extreme- Right” as meaning Free Man and insist on being addressed as such.
    Take back the language. Nothing can be accomplished until that is done. That is why the two clip of the English MEP below are so important. This can’t just be done by a few spokes persons. It must be everyday. between ordinary people, in common conversation. When you allow yourself to be bludgeoned with falsehood and innuendo into silence you give tacit endorsement to their lies. Do not degenerate into shouting or name calling. Just make it clear you 1) disagree, 2) their ad hominem attacks make no difference to the facts of your argument 3) physical violence, especially by the state, is not an endorsement of either the clarity or morality of anyone’s argument.
    This will require the sacrifice of treasure and blood, but it is the only way short of fratricide. Tommy Robinson has, seemingly, embarked upon this course, but, I say again, it must become everyday; as everyday as assailing someone as a right-winger for saying a truth as simple and obvious as recognizing the alienness and illegitimacy of Sharia law.

    • Chemnitz is in eastern Germany, the former communist DDR and home of the notorious Stasi. After the Nazis and the Communists, the people have had enough of “political correctness” of various shades.

  3. So…. lemme get this right.

    You live in fear of what your neighbours would do if you flew the confederate flag yet you have the gall to attack some German police?

    What a pathetic piece of gutless [waste material] you are.

    I have always enjoyed reading your site, but will no longer. I have standards and integrity. You have absolutely none.

    You are the hypocrite we are all fighting against. Scared to upset his NON WHITE neighbours, because you are a gutless piece of crap.

    Anytime you want to show me how tough you are, come look me up. People like you make me sick, but thank you for the heads up. I no longer will waste time reading your site.
    Cheers.

    • Well, if you don’t know the difference between showing courtesy towards neighbors whom you like, and being afraid of them, I doubt I could explain it to you.

    • You have the audacity to come into the man’s home and not only insult him but then threaten him also? He made the choice that a particular battle was not worth the potential aggravation involved. You have absolutely no say in the matter because it’s not your battle.

      You’re obviously sorely lacking in discernment but high on keyboard testosterone. In other words, [an epithet].

      You know what they say about the screen door………….

    • I’m sure the Baron can defend himself, but here’s my five cents’ worth: he refrains from displaying the Flag as a courtesy, and mark of respect, to his black neighbours, taking account of some of the negative associations it must have for them. I’d take an educated guess that if it came to the crunch, in a serious situation where a gesture was really needed, he’d not be wanting in courage; how many of we “keyboard warriors” can say the same?

  4. So now we have the pork police! It’s not creeping Sharia anymore it’s bloody-well galloping!

    btw That will go down like a lead balloon in Austria.

  5. “Well ,if you don,t know the difference between showing courtesy towards your neighbors whom you like, and being afraid of them, I doubt I could explain it to you.” I agree but I would take it a step further eating pig or shellfish (forbidden by Jews ,pigs only by Moslems) by others outside the faith is not an insult to someone of that faith their is no symbolism of “oppression “connected with what you eat yourself. A flag is a symbol of something it could be positive or negative ,what you eat you or your family is your private businesses .Just like drinking or not drinking beer or wine ,it should be your own business that symbolist something to someone else who wants to control your private choice in diet or lifestyle Islam wants to control the non-believers lifestyle thru fear and violence. No other religious belief in the 21 century has that idea of controlling outsiders (non-believers) lifestyle.

    • Exactly. My oldest friend, who died this year, kept Kosher, but was happy to buy me a ham sandwich when we met for lunch.

      • I had to dine two observant moslems by invitation of my wife. Would I post here on GoV if I wasn’t in for a ruse? Well, they thought being served halal meat, but……
        One upside was: they did not claim special diet and everything was delicious.

  6. As you know I am from “across the Pond”. Sadly I read these words (which I will quote at length, if I may) rather like a recent history of Britain in my lifetime:

    “People are offended by the Stars and Bars; there’s no doubt about it. Sometimes severely offended. But the police can’t come to your house and tell you to take your Confederate battle flag down. Maybe in San Francisco or Ann Arbor, but not here in Virginia. Not yet.

    It’s my choice whether or not to celebrate my Confederate heritage by displaying the flag. As it happens, most of my neighbors are black. They would not view it the same way I do. Some of them would no doubt be offended, or hurt, or angry, or some combination thereof, by my flying the flag. Since I like my neighbors (most of them, anyway), I choose not to fly the Confederate flag, as a courtesy to them.

    But it’s my choice. No political authority tells me not to do it.”

    If I were to substitute every reference to “Stars & Bars” or to Confederate Battle Flag” with “Union Jack” and/or “Flag of St George” (England) then that is what happened in Britain. The flag seemed offensive to some because another bunch of (allegedly nasty) people adopted it as the flag of their political party/movement. So “let’s not make an issue of it” was the courtesy of not insisting on further upsetting those already offended folks. Slowly that became entrenched and enforced, especially as the local councils became more stridently left wing both in politicians and in their permanent (nominally neutral) staff. And now flying the flag is often cause to call in Plod, and Plod only knows how to arrest and prosecute people.

    It isn’t just a flag issue. That is just today’s talking point in the fight by which the Left are imposing Socialism on the US and the Constitution is hung on the nail in the privvy. Similar to what has already been achieved in large swathes of Europe.

    Unless the good folks of Virginia do something more than just feel glad that they don’t live in San Francisco or Ann Arbor, the thinking of San Francisco and Ann Arbor will come to gobble you up. Already some parts of Texas are turning Democrat! Texas of all places!

    Unless you all receive a stonking great miracle, the US is at best a decade behind Europe, likely much less.
