German officials have banned the serving of ham and bacon at schools and cafeterias in fear of offending refugees.
Muslims and Jews do not eat pork if they are religiously inclined. The recent influx of refugees escaping wars and economic famine has inundated Germany and Europe. Chancellor Angela Merkel initially welcomed the refugees by giving them a nod and a wink. Now that they have arrived, they seem to reveal themselves to be mostly rapists and economic migrants looking out for their own selfish selves, according to the media.
The German public is getting weary with refugees and escapees of war coming to their lands from alien cultures with Muslim values, according to the media. The refugees in Germany, Denmark and other European countries are now being targeted by local European prejudices and fears.
Without asking for it, the disillusioned refugees who made the long trek to Europe are now being offered pork-free menus in northern Germany, in response to Denmark’s opposite stance of introducing more pork dishes to their menus. Either way, the refugee is being targeted by the respective idiosyncrasies, and is now worried about those fears, on top of all the fears that are associated with war, betrayal, hunger, loneliness and being a refugee.
Thanks Angela for keeping pork on the menu. Maybe a refugee had always harboured a quiet desire for a hot dog and a shandy. Let him enjoy it quietly with his German neighbour. No need for antagonism.
The Sunday Express reports:
Now members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party are fighting to keep pork on the menu, insisting the consumption of pork is part of German culture.
Daniel Günther, party representative, claimed that pork products were being taken off the menu in schools, nurseries and canteens across the country.
He said: “The protection of minorities – including for religious reasons – must not mean that the majority is overruled in their free decision by ill-conceived consideration.
Mr Günther argued that tolerance also means “the appreciation and sufferance of other food cultures and lifestyles”.
He argued that those who didn’t want to eat pork didn’t have to, adding: ”The consumption of pork belongs to our culture.
“No one should be obliged to do so. But we also don’t want the majority having to refrain from pork.”
German sausages are part of the country’s culture. At Oktoberfest in Munich, the largest beer festival in the world – sausages are served alongside steins of beer.
The move is likely to cause tensions among residents who support the introduction of restrictions on the inflow of refugees to the country.
