Tennessee: Grade School Bans Pork to Appease Muslims

via Todd StarnesWhy Did a Tennessee Grade School Ban Pork? | FOX News & Commentary.

A Tennessee elementary school banned students from eating ham sandwiches, BLT’s and anything else made with pork, but eventually lifted the ban after parents complained.

Third grade teachers at Sunset Elementary School in Brentwood, Tenn. sent home an “Approved Snack List” for the school year and it specifically banned anything that comes from a pig.snacklist

“No meats containing pork,” read the memorandum. “Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list.”

Kids could nosh on raw vegetables without dips or sauces, fresh fruit, crackers, pretzels, and popcorn – but no ribs or pork rinds.

“Only choose a food from the following list to bring into school for snack,” the memorandum stated in bold-face type. “No other food items are permitted.”

One day after the pork ban went into effect, Williamson County Schools posted a message on their Facebook page telling parents to ignore the rules.

“Schools should only be offering suggested snack choices, and that information will be sent home only if your child is in a classroom where there is a food allergy,” the district stated. “Any reference to not allowing pork products in school is incorrect. Please disregard.”

The district said the point of the memorandum was to address food allergies and approved snack lists.

The memorandum did not explain why the school had become a pork-free zone, leading to lots of confusion among parents.

“I’ve never heard of a life-threatening pork allergy,” one parent wrote on Facebook.

The no-pork rule generated lots of conversation on Nashville’s talk radio stations and a number of callers and several hosts wondered if it had something to do with students who might be Muslim.

“Typical list for a Madrassa,” wrote Nashville radio host Michael DelGiorno on his Facebook page.

“If you think this has anything to do with something besides appeasing Muslims then you are either stupid or willfully ignorant,” one of his listeners wrote.

A search of the school’s website returns several results for Islam and Muslim.

One Twitter user responded to the school’s dhimmitude even though they retracted the edict.

twit-porkJust last week the Pillars of Islam (including jihad) were found in a Tennessee public school. Could it be the same one? All posts on Tennessee here.6a00d8341c60bf53ef01901eab7168970b

  1. BETTER YET LIST ONLY PORK PRODUCTS WILL BE USED IN THE CAFATERIA AND TO HELL WITH APPEASING ANY DAMN MUSLIM! THEY CAN GO ELSE WHERE TO SEND THERE KIDS TO SCHOOL!

  2. This is outrageous and we should never continue down this path. Those who choose to give up their freedom’s and right to eat what you want because of Muslims or this Government is insane. Time to stop the madness!!!

  3. Now, the entire WORLD wants to throw up when they even hear the words ISLAM or MUSLIM. Real Americans reject, 100%, anything and anybody having anything to do with the devil-worshiping filth called Islam.

  4. Where do we get the stupid idiots that make these idiotic decisions? If these are all elected positions, boy are we in trouble! Someone needs to slap them in the side of the head with a 2 x 4 to get their brain out of the stuck position.

  5. The total list is stupid in requiring only certain brand named snacks. They must be stockholders. And no pork? What a bunch of losers who try to teach our children. They need to go dack to training rocks!

  6. I wonder what would happen if the school tried to enforce this?

  7. What America and the world is up against:
    Dr Jonathan Matusitz and Brigitte Gabriel

  8. They even list brand names? That’s even crazier! I would immediately pull my kids out of a school that demanded that kind of snack list. I don’t know of a single child that would eat raw veggies without some sort of dip. In these tough times many families would be hard pressed to get name brands, I know we are and my husband has a good job.

  9. No more appeasing ! Why?

  10. This is TOO DAMN MUCH!

    If they don’t like it DO NOT EAT IT!!!

    Start a rumor!

    Yes, start a rumor that everything being served has had pork fat used in it… but, don’t tell anyone… don’t really DO IT… just start the rumor to see how far it will go.

    Then, when they start to raise HELL abou it, just tell the damn bastards, “Sorry, you eat what you want and we will eat what WE want… If you don’t like it that way, just don’t eat… go somewhere else and eat!”

  11. Ot is getting worse and worse. Appeasing? Not really, no guts is more appropriate. Stand up for our rights, and if the Muslim families do not like it, have me bring their own lunch. Whoever advised this idea, should be fired or demoted.

  12. When in Muslim countries, Muslims expect you to do as they say and do. When in a non-Muslim country, Muslims still expect you to do as they say and do.

    • This is the USA. Unlike some countries, we have no official religion. We welcome all types of people. We are a melting pot. So I see absolutely nothing wrong with this. Jews don’t eat pork either. I’m sure you wouldn’t have a problem if this school had tried to “appease” them.

      • You’re missing the entire point and or you didn’t read the article and or you have no reading comprehension. The entire point is that this is all about appeasing Muslims. Another point is that there is no need to appease Jews because they don’t demand appeasement by others. Muslims are crybabies and demand appeasement from everyone.

      • Jews wouldn’t ask the school to do that. Muslims demand the schools to do it. A big difference.

      • I don’t have any problem with Muslims being here!

        They should NOT try to change out Nation to comply with THEIR traditions, eating beliefs, habits, etc.

        If they want to be here, they will keep their WAY OF LIFE, and it’s REQUIREMENTS, to themselves and NOT try to shove it down everyones THROAT!!

        If they can’t do that, they should not be here! PERIOD!

        They can live here abiding by OUR LAWS keeping their stuff to themselves and Everything will be just FINE; else, NO WAY!!

      • Jews do not wan want to kill Americans,,, ,,

      • I attended a school system which was about 20% Jewish. The Jewish kids who wanted to keep kosher simply brown-bagged their own lunches. They never tried to tell anyone else what to bring for lunch.

    • With them tolerance is a one way street! We do as we want and you do as we want also, Allah says so, you must obey Allah

  13. Not a problem. They all been eating it here for years. Peanut butter crackers, fried chicken, capsules from the doc. We need to tell them its in almost every food here. They need to bring their own food here if they want it pork free. Watch the silly buggers jihad then!

  14. Because appeasing Muslims always works out so well for the appeasers …

    Oink …

  15. Those of us who lived through WW2 know where the appeasement road leads. Nobody asked the Muslims to come and live in the West, if they want to live by their codes there are plenty of countries they can move to. It is time to get in their face about their food nonsense

  16. Why do Christians eat pork?

    Don’t give me some bull about that only being in the old testament because Jesus said he did not come to the destroy the laws.

    • Because well cooked pork is just delicious! (we atheists love it too!)
      As regards the comments; the best one was at the beginning: “Ban muslims to appease the rest of us”.

    • Because it taste good. BACON!!!!

  17. the true American people,who for generatios have been born to American parents,are be coming extinct. seems the muslims are trying to take over the world, and it seems like Obarfma,is offering them the U S of A. time to wake up

  18. Tennessee, what has happened to your state? Are you no longer part of the United States? You are turning into England and France, why are you letting the Muslim lifestyle take over your schools and your way of life there? New York is now letting them pray in their streets blocking traffic just like they do in France. Is all ways of American life going down the tubes? They are taking over, one state at a time, New York, Michigan, Washington state, California, now Tennessee and then Who–Florida? WAKE UP!
    The Million Muslin March being planned on 09/11 on Washington, DC— trouble is on the horizon!

  19. This is very ridiculously stupid and insane. If the Muslims do not like the Western lifestyle, it is time to say to them those words: THE DOORS ARE THERE, SO LEAVE!!!!

  20. Someone needs to spy on these in power to see what they eat all day long. What is good for the geese is good for the gander. But name brand???? No home made? Where has home economy gone? Oh, I forgot, this is socialism.

  21. I see zenophobia is alive and well in Tennessee. That’s one of the more unfortunate things that you have picked up from us British. No need to thank us. You should be more concerned about the brands the list insists parents use.

  22. […] It’s not the only elementary school that ambushed unsuspecting students with Islamic propaganda that we know about. It also happened in Tennessee: Five Pillars of Islam in public school. where another public school banned pork to appease Muslims. […]
