Piglet Banned in Britain

TheSun reported Novelty pig calendars and toys have been banned from a council office — in case they offend Muslim staff. Workers in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, were told to remove or cover up all pig-related items, including toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

This is carrying political correctness to a new level. The Muslim religion, like the Jewish Religion, forbids them from EATING pork, but no one is trying to force them to eat pork. But why can't others have pig related pictures or figures. Britain was foolish to allow so many Muslims into their country, and to not monitor what they were preaching, but are they so afraid Muslims will bomb more subways that they treat their own citizens this way?
LostBudgie blogged When asked about the ban, Winnie the Pooh's dear friend, Piglet, said ... * (QuickTime or other .wav player needed). This latest incident is just part of an ongoing initiative by some Muslims to force British society to conform to Islamic standards. Declaring the images of pigs to be offensive and anti-Muslim is the tactic of the day - and it appears to be coming along very well.

Previous U.K. successes include banning a 100 year old statue of a wild boar, police seizure of porcelain pigs displayed in the window of a private home, and the removal of a sign referring to "pork" at a British pub frequented by butchers. Along with Winnie the Pooh, some British schools have also removed or restricted the following "anti-Muslim" children's books...

The Three Little Pigs
Charlottes Web
Babe - The Sheep-pig
Cars and Trucks and Things That Go
Olivia Saves the Circus
Animal Farm
I wonder what they would say about Glenn Reynolds and TruthLaidBear's PorkBuster Campaign
Muslim efforts to impose Islamic standards are not confined to the United Kingdom. Even in Orlando, Florida, a Christian employee of a business owned by a Muslim was fired for eating a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich.

Kathy Shaidle has launched a "Show Your Piglet!" campaign.
