The Great Hamscapade!

Source: sun journal

Earlier today MJ and I were both so struck by a story that we each ended up posting on it here and here. The short version is that a student at a Maine school tossed a ham steak onto a table populated by Somali muslims, who immediately turned into shreiking ninnies and ultimately the police were called and are currently investigating a pork based "hate crime."

I crap you negative good buddy!

I just stumbled across this article that picks up where the other left off, we introduce the character of Stephen Wessler a pre-op lobotomy patient, it's titled...
“Hate incident’ in city”
I crap you negative!
One student has been suspended and more disciplinary action could follow a possible hate crime at Lewiston Middle School, Superintendent Leon Levesque said Wednesday.

On April 11, a white student placed a ham steak in a bag on a lunch table where Somali students were eating. Muslims consider pork unclean and offensive.

The act reminded students of a man who threw a pig’s head into a Lewiston mosque last summer.

The school incident is being treated seriously as “a hate incident,” Levesque said. Lewiston police are investigating, and the Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence is working with the school to create a response plan.

“We’ve got some work to do to turn this around and bring the school community back together again,” Levesque said.

Placing ham where Muslim students were eating was “an awful thing,” said Stephen Wessler, executive director of the Center for Prevention of Hate Violence. “It’s extraordinarily hurtful and degrading” to Muslims, whose religion prohibits them from being around ham. It’s important to respond swiftly, Wessler said.

“Incidents like this that involve degrading language or conduct are often said by the perpetrator as a joke. I know that conduct is never static,” he said. “It’s part of a process of escalation.”
Yes, I understand that delicious baby back ribs are next on the agenda, shudder, the humanity people, the humanity!

How exactly does a civilization survive when shrieking ninnies like Mr. Wessler aren't immediately taken behind a building and introduced repeatedly to Mr. Fist? How does a civilization survive when you have individuals who actually think the throwing of a ham steak, by children, is the beginning of a pogram?

I'm sorry to have to use Hitler Kitty twice in one day, but Mrs. Wessler leaves me no choice...

Hitler Kitty sez: Ham steaks do not a pogram make Herr Wessler, in your case though I could make an exception!
