"Severed pig’s head thrown at Philadelphia mosque door."

WaPo reports.
“It’s just a pig’s head — that’s not a big deal; but it does send a message,” said mosque spokesman and Arab American Development Corp. Director Marwan Kreidie. “I think people are worried that if they do a pig’s head, they could do something more violent in the future.”...

A manager at Philadelphia’s Al-Aqsa Islamic Society said the mosque received a voicemail on Nov. 14 that alluded to the Paris attacks, according to police. “Are you happy about what happened in France?” the male voice stated. The persona also said, “God is a pig!” and “God is Pork!”

I'm guessing this is another faux hate crime.

In the battle for the hearts and "minds" of the low information voter, a hoax is better than the real thing (because you control the timing: what if some foraging wildlife makes off with the tasty pig's head before the media show up?)

The tell here is, of course, the beheading. Who beheads infidels and unclean animals?

Sounds like the black college hoaxes.

Why the pleonastic severed -- If you throw a pig's head, how is it not severed?

WisRich said...

Smells like a false flag....and bacon.

tim maguire said...

Not from the pigs point of view, eh garage!

In it's own odd way, this is a nice story. Somebody did something stupid and jerkish but ultimately harmless, and the target kept it in perspective, recognizing that it's not really a big deal. Too bad our kumbaya moment was undermined by the typical dirtbag offerings of our resident leftist troll garage mahal.

I'm willing to bet the victims of San Bernardino and their families, as well as every other victim of jihad, wishes that a pig head was thrown at them instead of the bullets or bombs or airplanes or beheadings, garage.

Do you honestly believe a pig head tossed at a building is the same as killing an infidel?

Any pretensions garage may have ever had to being in any way worthwhile as a commenter or a human being is fully demolished here. I'd advise you to walk that back forcefully, but it's just vile and hateful and wrong, for about 40 obvious reasons ... so obvious, that you're clearly beyond hope or redemption or reason.

You're as harmful as anyone who has ever plagued this site, the nuts and the cranks and belligerent stalkers on both sides of the aisle. You contribute nothing but malice and misery. It's awful. And your glee makes it doubly so.

You're the same as Linda Stasi, who wrote that there were 13 innocent victims of the San Bernardino attacks, plus the conservative who deserved to die. You deserve ostracism by decent people.

I don't say that lightly.

Good way to build trust within the Muslim community. This is exactly what ISIS has been telling Muslims around the world, that the west is disrespectful to Islam and deserves to die for it. Playing right into the hands of ISIS, so intelligent.

Okay, how the hell does someone come by a pig's head in Philadelphia?

I live in the DC suburbs, and if I wanted a pig's head, say, for example, to make my own special head-cheese, I'd have to look far & wide for it. No grocery would carry it. I'd have to get it from a specialty butcher, and probably on special order.

Some butcher in Philly knows who's the weirdo who ordered a pig's head, and I imagine that soon the police will have a lead.

Mark said...

And here come the deniers, unwilling to accept what their fellows have done. Always claiming it's a fake.

Meanwhile they ask Muslims to root out their troublemakers, because they are into confronting the negative actors on their side.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

NPR did a story last night that completely bought into CAIR's complaint that "attacks against Muslims had reached the same level as after 9/11." Well, never mind that I can't think of any attacks that occurred after 9/11. I remember a Sikh convenience store worker getting shot in what was clearly an armed robbery, that's about it.

So what did NPR cite as an "attack" against Muslims? Some guy picketing a mosque in Irving, Texas. His real crime was that he was carrying a loaded shotgun, a prudent move considering what he was up to. NPR thinks it's the moral equivalent of gunning down fourteen of your coworkers.

"Not much daylight between Trump supporters and ISIS supporters."

Garage demonstrates in his vast stupidity what Hillary enunciated in the debate when she said the enemies she is the most proud of are republicans. No matter how barbaric our enemies our progressives view obstacles to their own power as the true enemy, and that means political opponents.

Garage and Hillary are going to be really sad if we turn out to be as evil as they claim because we are far more numerous, have more guns, and are far better trained than they are.

Muslims would take all of your property and give it to whomever they forced you to marry and stick you in a burka. Then they would throw rocks at your gay friends until they were dead. If you disobeyed your husband he would have to follow their rules for how to beat you.

I have female friends who I don't want this to happen to. Strangely enough I don't want it to happen to you either.

Given that Democrats provided ISIS their homebase and refuse to do a thing to deal with them, sounds like they're members of your constituency, garage.

I'd be amazed if one of the worshippers didn't do it...but I can always be surprised.

Good way to build trust within the Muslim community.

1) Evidence it was done by a non-Muslim?
2) Given that Muslims don't want to deal with their radicals, not having their trust is harmful...how?

This is exactly what ISIS has been telling Muslims around the world, that the west is disrespectful to Islam and deserves to die for it.

Yes. They kill people. A mosque gets a pig head thrown at it.

Why, it's the same thing!

And here come the deniers, unwilling to accept what their fellows have done.

Just asking for proof. Hoaxes aren't unheard of. And why should WE be expected to answer for people? Muslims don't feel any need to answer for THEIR radicals, after all.

Meanwhile they ask Muslims to root out their troublemakers, because they are into confronting the negative actors on their side.

And Muslims said "no".

Bob Ellison said...

YoungHegelian makes an excellent point.

Police types and journalists would tend to wonder, "Where can we get a pig's head in Philadelphia?"

That could lead to a very quick investigation.

You and garage are on to something here. We are playing right into the hands of ISIS and other groups around the world. They want to kill us because of the way we behave.

Can we agree on this and say we ought, as a society, to stop provoking ISIS and other extremists?

Achilles said...

How many pigs heads are within 500 miles of Philadelphia? Vanishingly few. Unless it is stated this was someone's pet miniature pig that got decapitated you are saying that someone drove to the nearest slaughter house where every collectable ounce of the pig is ground up to make money and stole a pig head then drove it back to throw it at this particular mosque.

holdfast said...

IF it's not fake, then it's probably an a-hole atheist. How many Christians or Jews would say or write “God is a pig!” and “God is Pork!”.

holdfast said...

Per the FBI:

Religious bias
Of the 1,140 victims of anti-religious hate crimes in 2014:

56.8 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-Jewish bias.

16.1 percent were victims of anti-Islamic (Muslim) bias.


6.2 percent were victims of bias against groups of individuals of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group).

6.1 percent were victims of anti-Catholic bias.

2.5 percent were victims of anti-Protestant bias.

1.2 percent were victims of anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.

11.0 percent were victims of bias against other religions (anti-other religion).

Too bad there's no breakdown by religion of the perpetrator.

Respect is earned. They haven't earned it. In the meantime where is the respect from the Muslim world to the rest of the world? Have you seen it? Since not a single Islamic country never mind an Arab has made any meaningful contribution to science and technology in the last thousand years maybe it is them that ought to be respectful that but for the West and it's civilization accomplishments most of them wouldn't be alive today.

Of course, it's the Obama Admin and the NY Times who want to strip away fundamental natural, civil and Constitutional rights from tens (hundreds?) of thousands of citizens via a due process-free "match list" which will clearly have a massively disparate impact.

Pig's heads may not be so uncommon in Pennsylvania. There's a strong tradition of head-cheese-making there.

There aren't farms outside Philadelphia? Medical schools use a lot of pigs for animal research. We bought our's from farmers.

So throwing a pig's head at a door is as bad as (if not worse) than beheading, raping and burning to death, Christians?

Why aren't Muslims afraid of being disrespectful to Christians and playing into the hands of the West?

Because Amanda, Obama and the rest hate us too.

I am reminded of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic, I Am the Captain of the Pinafore.
Captain:
Bad language or abuse,
I never, never use,
Whatever the emergency;
Though "bother it" I may
Occasionally say,
I never use a big, big D —

Chorus:What, never?
Captain:No, never!
Chorus:What, never?
Captain:Hardly ever!
Chorus:Hardly ever swears a big, big D —
Then give three cheers, and one cheer more,
For the hardy Captain of the Pinafore!


The hardy Captain also hardly ever swears the big big D. Ah, times have changed.

While it is true that there are documented hate crimes against Muslims,there have been enough documented hoaxes to make skepticism not as unrealistic as our friend garage claims.

FAKE MUSLIM HATE CRIMES: WHERE’S THE APOLOGY, CAIR?


Fake Hate Crimes: An Islamist Weapon.
I remember reading in the month after 9/11 of a young Muslim in the US- IIRC he was a university student from Saudi Arabia- who had been caught in a hate crime hoax.

Muslim hate crime hoax: not never? Well, hardly ever. And probably much more often than "hardly ever."

Garage making a claim that upon examination is a factual, documented claim? Well, hardly ever.

Now, look.

Garage is wrong, as demonstrated by actual documented instances.

But "look at the result count for this web search!" never proves any God-damn thing. It's a disgraceful tactic no matter who uses it.

(Also, I get 7,280 results.

I get 207,000,000 for "fake hate crime" your mom.

Does that mean your mom is responsible for six orders of magnitude more fake hate crimes?

Obviously it does.)

Actually 285 results from Bing, but that's pretty close to 4 million.

Nope, only 21 results from Bing . (Actually 20, at most, because the last one doesn't have any of the words "fake", "hate" or "crime" in it)

I wish You People would learn how to use search engines.

First lesson: they initially lie, a lot, about the number of results. If you claim you got 10 million results, try going to, say, the 900,000th result. It won't be there. The 1,000th result probably won't be there either.

The best argument against Muslims doing it themselves is that they would have to touch the pig head. That said, I have doubts about the story.

There plenty of non-muslim leftists (like garage) who doesn't mind trashing his own evil white fathers military service and praising Hamas who could easily be convinced to pull this little prank if it would advance the cause.

Though garage does not possess the actual brainpower to pull it off on his own, he could be coached.

It would take a lot.

I think nowadays most "hate crimes" are fake, especially on college campuses and especially when nobody is seriously hurt and nothing is burned down (although homosexuals faking hate crimes seem prone to burning their own houses).

But my favorite was the black woman who lightly carved "KKK" on her chest but got it reversed because she did it in a mirror.

And let us not forget the most consequential fake hate ever, the Tawana Brawley case, which destroyed careers, provoked retaliatory attacks on Jews, and launched a minor neighborhood demagogue into a national political figure.

Brando said...

I'm going to wait until we have some verification about who did this. We've seen a lot of hoax "hate crimes" lately, and others that were never verified but made little sense (the feces "swastika" in U of Missouri). After all, nothing gins up your own crowd better than a relatively harmless but foul deed done by your opponents.

A severed pig's head goes a lot further than what I imagine the everyday anti-Muslim bigot would have done. If it's the real deal, shame on the thugs who'd do this. If it's a hoax, doubly shame on the hoaxers trying to sow fear and division where there's already enough of that.

Brando said...

"And let us not forget the most consequential fake hate ever, the Tawana Brawley case, which destroyed careers, provoked retaliatory attacks on Jews, and launched a minor neighborhood demagogue into a national political figure."

Were there attacks on Jews after that? I thought Steve Pagones was Greek.

It was a nasty hoax, and that should have reduced Sharpton to a forgotten joke of a human being. Unfortunately the left gives him a pass, even though to my mind he's far worse than David Duke because Duke never caused anyone's death.
