Now, I've been laying low on this site for the past few months for several reasons, one being the absolute sheer amount of hate, intolerance, bigotry, and ill will I've seen here lately.

I came across this article today and wanted to share it with the community because it is yet ANOTHER example that shows how the anti-muslim hate infecting a large segment of the country seems to be increasing more than ever this election cycle.


TITUSVILLE, Fla. — The Titusville Police Department asked for help Sunday finding the person who vandalized a downtown mosque in what the Council on American-Islamic Relations said might be a hate crime.

According to police, a man pulled a machete from a bag he had with him late Friday night and used it to slash at The Islamic Society of Central Florida Masjid Al-Munin Mosque before leaving three pounds of bacon by the mosque's front door.


Now considering that this was actually perpetuated by a non-Muslim against the mosque with the hypothetical intent of intimidation and NOT by a Muslim looking to stir things up as some will come in and claim, it appears that truly was a very religiously and culturally motivated crime specifically against the Muslim community: Why? not only was a mosque damaged, 3 pounds of BACON were left there. As the article states, it could very well be a hate crime. Why the machete, though, to make it seem like a Muslim was doing it himself, or just because the person it nuts?


“The use of pork in an incident of this type is one clear indicator of a possible bias motive for the vandalism,” said Nezar Hamze, the Council on American-Islamic Relations' Florida regional operations director.


And many people are beginning to think this type of thing is acceptable. We hear the intolerance and fear mongering from certain politicians' mouths, we hear it from people HERE ON ATS, and we have these nuts who decide to act on it in the real world. We've seen damaged mosques, we've seen Muslims get shouted at simply for being Muslim, we've seen Muslims assaulted, and many other incidents. ALL of this likely stems from the hateful rhetoric and lies we hear both from politicians' and the media's mouths.

This has all got to stop. Maybe things will chill out in a year...When the election ends. Maybe. One can hope.

This is getting out of hand. Thank goodness no one was hurt.

Is there any confirmation this wasn't another Muslim false flag?

If they haven't caught the person how do you know he wasn't Muslim? It's a safe assumption but you don't know for sure.

Don't like the machete part but bacon on the door step is funny, outside the realms of PC.

I wonder if the Charlie Hebdo staff have an alibi?

3 pounds is not very much bacon, what three small packages? Lol. WEll back to the article. Used a machete to vandalize but the news crew saw no visible signs of vandalism. The perp did do some damage to windows etc. Hummm, well maybe they are on over load from video footage of places like Dearborn Michigan and the likes where it was allowed to go unchecked until now even the police are not allowed into the community.

Since no harm was made I do not see why fbi should waste their time. It seems more like a warning to not get out of control.

Im sick of this issue where the terrorists hide among the innocent and then use our US system and our own homeland defense to give them Cartblanche to live above our laws.

Or 12! My concern is if the bacon was pepper-wood smoked, or maple flavored?

Back on topic-


“The use of pork in an incident of this type is one clear indicator of a possible bias motive for the vandalism,” said CAIR Florida Regional Operations Director Nezar Hamze." Linky

What the frig difference would it make if it were pork, turkey, ground round, or prime rib? Why is 'pork' a 'clear indicater'????

This would be like getting upset at people that didn't want Japanese in America after they attacked us in Pearl Harbor.
