CAIR Cheers Obama Administration’s Ban on Pork Products at Federal Prisons

CAIR Cheers Obama Administration’s Ban on Pork Products at Federal Prisons

The Obama administration announced this week it would ban pork products including ham, bacon, pork links, and chops from all federal prisons.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations cheered the news this week.

The Washington Post

The nation’s pork producers are in an uproar after the federal government abruptly removed bacon, pork chops, pork links, ham and all other pig products from the national menu for 206,000 federal inmates.

The ban started with the new fiscal year last week.

The Bureau of Prisons, which is responsible for running 122 federal penitentiaries and feeding their inmates three meals a day, said the decision was based on a survey of prisoners’ food preferences:

They just don’t like the taste of pork.

“Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat?” asked Edmond Ross, a spokesman for the prison bureau. “Pork has been the lowest-rated food by inmates for several years,” It also apparently got more expensive for the government to buy, although he did not provide specifics.

The National Pork Producers Council isn’t buying it. “I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon,’” said Dave Warner, a spokesman for the Washington-based trade association, which represents the nation’s hog farmers.

“We’re going to find out how this came about and go from there,” Warner said. “We wouldn’t rule out any options to resolve this.” He said the association “is still formulating our strategy” to reverse the prison decision, which the industry first learned about Monday when the Fort Worth Star-Telegram called for comment…

“In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the country’s largest Muslim civil rights advocacy group. “We hope it’s not an indication of an increasing number of Muslims in the prison system.”

Page 261 Barrack Obama "Audacity of Hope" When political winds go against Islam he would stand with Islam". Muslim murders soldiers at recruiting site. Obama SILENT. Muslim lines up Christians at the college and blows their heads off and Obama blames GUNS... Obama removed National Day of Prayer stating it offended Muslims and 3 weekends later he has them at the White House celebrating Islam and stated how the deserved to be able to build a Mosque by ground Zero.

Why would the taste buds of prisoners be different than the rest of America? We hear too many Blacks are in prison so you can't tell me they don't like pork. Only ones not liking pork are Muslims.
