Anybody remember Teddy Bear Rage? Looks like we have just moved towards puppy rage:
Scottish Muslim community leader contradicts councillor: Police puppy postcards “no big deal”
Spencer: Looks likeÂ that apology from the departmentÂ was issued a bit hastily (actually, it was unnecessary in the first place). But it underscores the existence of a climate of politically correct fear that is a product of the jihad of litigation and intimidation waged to secure special treatment for Muslims with respect toÂ attire,speech,Â employment, andÂ environment.
The dreaded pup of blasphemy:Â “Muslims outraged at police advert featuring cute puppy sitting in policeman’s hat,” from theÂ Daily Mail
Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allah (may peace be upon him) said: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil.” -Sahih MuslimÂ 4.1032
The Bunglawussi keeps an eye on the British press for us and it seems the Brits had a gut full of ‘Islamophobia’ BS:
A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman’s hat advertising a Scottish police force’s new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims.
Tayside Police’s new non-emergency phone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.
The choice of image on the Tayside Police cardsÂ â€“ a black dog sitting in a police officer’s hatÂ â€“ has now been raised with Chief Constable John Vine.
The advert has upset Muslims because dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee have refused to display the advert.
See also theÂ Daily Telegraph, whose readers helpfully draw out the subtext to this story:
“Why are the police apologising for doing their job. This is just another case of kowtowing to people who do not understand the BRITISH way of life.”
“Stop all this namby pamby nonsence. As you say the British are a nation of dog lovers…. We are British and this is Britain. If you don’t like it leave.”
“what next no pictures of pigs in the butchers! We are supposedly living in a multi cultural country, but it seems that we are dominated by the views of the muslims and their communities.”
“OMG, im sorry but if you dont like what people in OUR country do then go away.”
“Who cares what the Muslims think/say. Really, what are they going to do about it? It’s our culture, our traditions, our beliefs.”
“This is absurd. Why should Britons change their culture to accomodate Muslims? … This political correctness will cause the downfall of your society. What happened to majority rule?”
“If muslims don’t like dogsÂ â€“ or any other facet of our national characteristicsÂ â€“ then they should bugger off to Iran or some other Islamic wonderland. When will we stop pandering to these barbarians? Why have we let them in to our country at all?”
