America Gives Butterball the Bird Over Halal Turkey Cover-Up

During Thanksgiving week, Americans were treated to a notable example of the effort by Muslims to assert Islamic law and practices over their American counterparts, when it was revealed that Butterball, the most popular supplier of Thanksgiving turkeys in the nation, was certifying all its turkeys halal—that is, slaughtered according to Islamic ritual requirements.  And as in most cases where American businesses kowtow to Islamic supremacist demands, instead of owning up to what it was doing, under pressure Butterball obfuscated, denied, equivocated, and did its best to cover its tracks.  This is how the stealth jihad advances.
 
It all began when my colleague Pamela Geller published an article on American Thinker titled “Happy Halal Thanksgiving,” in which she quoted a Butterball representative stating that not just some, but all whole Butterball turkeys were certified halal.  Butterball was not offering consumers a choice.  All were halal.
 
After Geller’s article appeared, however, Butterball began to be inundated with inquiries and complaints.  Many were told that it was indeed true:  All Butterball whole turkeys were halal.  However, as the complaints continued to pour in, Butterball shifted its tactics, and the great halal turkey cover-up began.  A Butterball representative told “The Rachel Maddow Show” that the whole controversy was based on false pretenses, and that its turkeys, at least for domestic consumption, were not certified halal after all.  The inconvenient section of the Butterball website saying that their turkeys were indeed certified halal was hastily scrubbed not only from the main page but from the Google cache—a tricky procedure and a sure indication of a guilty conscience.
 
Butterball had every reason to be red-faced.  While the mainstream media, with its characteristic leftist indulgence of all things Islamic supremacist, ridiculed Geller and portrayed the controversy as motivated by “anti-Muslim hate” or a hysterical fear of “jihad turkeys,” the substance of the controversy was actually not over the fact that Butterball offered halal turkeys, but that it offered only halal turkeys.  The Islamic supremacist agenda that I dubbed the “stealth jihad” in my 2008 book of that name is not a terrorist initiative, but a cultural one.  It centers upon the endeavor to bring Islamic law to the United States by nonviolent means, and to assert in every possible way the primacy of Islamic law and practice.
 
A captured internal document of the Muslim Brotherhood, detailing its strategy and goals for the United States, summarized that initiative as an attempt at “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house … so that Allah’s religion is victorious over other religions.”  That may seem worlds apart from halal turkeys, but it is by means of such small advances that this attempt at elimination, destruction and sabotage proceeds.  Whether it be the establishment of Muslim prayer rooms in public schools (from which Christian prayer was driven out decades ago), or the granting of special break times, which are unavailable to non-Muslim employees, for Muslim factory workers, or demands that businesses alter their long-standing dress codes for Muslims, even if those codes were established for health and safety reasons, the goal is the same: establishment of the precedent that American customs and mores must always give way to Islamic ones, and that Muslims must always be granted a special status that accords them rights and privileges that non-Muslims do not enjoy.
 
The goal is to establish Islamic law, Sharia, in America and the West—including its provisions that deny basic rights to non-Muslims, and that establish Muslims as precisely the special, protected class with special rights that these small initiatives grant them in various ways already.
 
And so in the Butterball turkey case, those who may not wish to eat halal food may take their business elsewhere, but Butterball has no accommodation for them.  It is too busy accommodating Muslims.  If the company had simply establish a halal line, and had other options available, there would have been no problem, but in all stealth jihad initiatives, the goal is not so much to win reasonable accommodation for Muslims, but to bring non-Muslim practices into conformity with Islamic law.
 
Butterball’s behavior when exposed shows that it knows it was not acting ethically.  Americans were right to put pressure on the company, and should put pressure on all businesses that act in the same way.  For ultimately, a great deal more is at stake than the Thanksgiving turkey.

    What is a traditional American? Let me remind you that the core of this country is based on diversity and people of different religions. What is the culture of America? Trust me, you need to learn how to live with Muslims as they will have to learn how to live with you. No one has to leave this country if they are an American. An American can be Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Atheist, gay, lesbian, woman, man, etc. It’s people like you who are “un-American” and need to leave this country if you cannot tolerate it. As far as Butterball, they should have made it aware to people that their meat was halal because people, like Sikhs, are not allowed to eat halal meat. We need to learn how to respect each other rather than trying to force our values into other peoples’ faces.

    mooslums are such liars. Afterall, your mass-murdering, raping, thieving, pedophile said it was okay to lie, especially to advance your insanity. You’re disgusting irfan. GTFO of my country. We do not care for your schizophrenic psychopath. pisslam is evil. Not one free pisslamic country in the world. It is an unconscionable SHAME to call yourself a mooslum!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Lamb/572717926 Mary Lamb

    OMG. pisslam has had more wars among its own than any other group of people. pisslam has enslaved over a hundred million Africans as well as colonized much of that continent. Jesus is not your prophet! It is so insulting that you vermin even try and say such a thing, but that is what you do, co-opt all of history. You are disgusting, vile cretins. piss be upon moehammy. Death to pisslam!

    You know nothing about pisslam. It is a supremacist totalitarian ideology, not even a religion. Only mooslums try and force their non-values into others faces, by literally cutting anyone’s head off that objects to their pedophile puppet. mooslums loyalty lies with their ideology, never their country. They are here to wage unholy war. Do yourself a favor and read their war manual, if you possibly can get through all the calls to kill ALL non-mooslums.

    Nice. Seriously nice. But it’s still sacrificed to a lying, thieving, murdering, raping, pedophile. All the bacon in the world can’t make that better.

    I fucking hate them too. Not a free mooslum country in the world. Over a hundred and fifty million women without genitals. Egypt’s “president” just declared himself a dictator today! Bad enough that like most mooslums he’s married to his first cousin, but now he’s gone and made himself a dictator which is what they supposedly had a revolution against? Fucking mooslums! Scourge of the planet!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Lamb/572717926 Mary Lamb

    It’s not a religion. It’s a totalitarian, political and economic ideology. Better open your eyes Andrew, lest you get your head cut off. Seriously, try reading their war manual. It makes the Old Testament look tame.

    Have you ever seen a halalalalalal slaughter house. The word “cleanly” does not even exist in moooslums’ vocabularly. They are consistently in violation of our health codes.

    mooslums do not worship any merciful god. They are the most barbaric people on the planet. Enjoy getting your clit cut off.

    Amen!

    Evil defends evil. Hitler was Nationalist. Latin Americans imported four times as many African slaves to Latin America as did America. They also have later emancipation dates. pisslam has enslaved over a hundred and fifty million Africans as well as colonized half the continent. You are very naive. pisslam is not a religion. It is a totalitarian political ideology, and moehammy was an ignorant, illiterate, schizophrenic psychopath.

    In Turkey, in the last ten years of Erdogan’s dictatorship, murder has become the number one cause of death for women. This is not Ataturk’s Turkey. He is turning over in his grave. Erdogan is a thug and dictator. And Gul is married to his first cousin, just like Morsi! It’s a mooslum thing! You apparently don’t want to understand it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Lamb/572717926 Mary Lamb

    Um, great post, just one correction though. And that would be “unholy” war manual. Yep, moehammy was one sick schizophrenic psychopath! Amazing that anyone would defend the murderous life he led!

    Because pisslam is a supremacist totalitarian ideology that is on an unholy war to make us their slaves. All mooslums are slaves. Have you taken a look at the number of mooslum organizations the current dictator-in-chief has met with and whose ass he kisses? Scary! Scary that the American public bought into this fraud, voter fraud not withstanding.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Lamb/572717926 Mary Lamb

  • Timothy Wilson

    You are racist and you discriminate about a religion. Please watch the Rise of Hitler film. He had exactly the same feelings as you about the Jews. Its a dangerous place to go. Oh and because you are an American I think it was disgusting how your ancestors slaughtered the native Americans. You proud now mate?

  • Timothy Wilson

    Yes excellent point. We have had so much trouble in the world because of TWO main reasons 1) Due to the first Gulf War there are US troops in Saudi, 2) The US support of Israel treating the Palestinians like dogs, The US has caused so much sadness in our world. The Muslim world has reacted to that understandably. By the way I am not a Muslim but a Christian.

  • Timothy Wilson

    Obviously you are of low education or none at all.

    You are a very sad sad lonely person.

  • Timothy Wilson

    Oh that`s clever of you. I am interested to know, are you the sort of American who actually thought it worth while to invade another country and kill 120,000 civilians? The world waits for an apology!

  • Timothy Wilson

    Sonia I am a Christian but completely agree with you. These low people think Muslim is about killing, it is so sad. They are completely ignorant.

  • Timothy Wilson

    You are a shame to the human race. Yes there are lots and lots of moderate Muslims….why are you such an ignorant person. Read more but both perspectives please then you would not talk like this.

  • Timothy Wilson

    Yes well said!!

  • Timothy Wilson

    American heros? You are the most hated people in the world! Don`t get too proud. It is common knowledge that `generally` Americans are not so bright and it is common knowledge that America has the one of the worst crime records in the world. It is heavily in debt, mostly to China I believe. The only good thing I see at the moment is that you have a black president oh but he would have been voted by the blacks and Hispanics mainly because America is still racist. It is with black people but now with Muslims. My god your people are insecure. Yes God please Bless America because you really need it.

    Halal is a slow torture for the animals. Maybe the ‘torture’ is imprinted in the meat; because those that eat ‘Halal’ are by example; the least inclined to authentic kindness; on our planet. Tortured ‘food in’. . .and tortuous MO’s out; and visited upon the world. Listen to Mozart while you dine; or just ‘ever’? What does your soul resonate to? Never mind. . .think we get the picture. . .

    That said; will never eat Halal. . .and speaking of ‘dirty’ prep;. .guess it is in the eye of the beholder and what is considered ‘normal’ per custom.

  • catherineinpvb

    There would be no ‘issue’ if it were just a turkey. So much more; read and ‘get it’. . try to understand the big picture already drawn. There is ‘jihad’ and ‘stealth jihad’. Change the language; change a culture. Political Correctness has left Americans and all who ‘adhere’; a landscape of mind-numbed robots; (and Common Core about to finish the task; unless, that is; ‘stealth jihad’ does not do it first. We are not ‘they’. . .and America – despite Obama’s best dream – is not a Muslim Country. Eat Halal; give an inch. . .’don’t worry’/be happy. . .and one day; too soon; you will up and find the worst import that the Middle East has; is now. . .your life.

  • catherineinpvb

    Why not read of the relationship between nazism and ‘Islamism’. . you have only to google. . .One thing to have an open mind; another to be sieve. . .or just a ‘fool’.
