Washington: Kent School District Removes Pork From Menus to Appease Muslims

Soon there will be taxpayer-funded Muslim-only prayer rooms in these schools and if that doesn’t suffice, then early release or time off for Muslims on Friday’s to hit the mosque. via: Washington School Removes Pork From Menu – DennisMichaelLynch.com

School complies with Muslim demands, states pork removal due to cultural sensitivities and diversity.

As recently reported by ACT For America, The Kent, Washington school district has changed their food options and removed all pork products, in order to accommodate Muslim dietary needs according to a frustrated parent. Dave Brabo, a resident of Renton, Washington recently expressed his concerns with the new policy to school officials.

Specifically Mr. Brabo spoke with the school’s Director of Nutritional Services, Tom Ogg, who informed him that “he was well aware of the issues (and the slippery slope) with the changes to menu options due to Muslim religious beliefs, but he said lots of Muslims had complained and threatened the school by reporting them to the U.S. Department of Education.”

Mr. Brabo was told that if the school system doesn’t “accommodate the Muslim dietary needs that their federal and state funding would be cut or pulled.”    He was told that the school system may be doing this in order to better accommodate incoming refugees.

Mr. Brabo responded by saying, “I want KOSHER food added and labeled, Christian “food” offered during Lent, and even Hindi food offered.” According to Mr. Brabo, Tom Ogg, Director of Nutritional Services laughed and said, “No”. He even cited a case of a school district in New York that had parents protest the labeling of “non-pork” products and offering acceptable Islamic food. The school district had to back down.

The administration also told Mr. Brabo that they were obligated under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to “reasonably accommodate” this religious group’s needs. He was told that it’s for documented disabilities (physical or cognitive) and not for religious exceptions.

This school district is removing pork products from their menu, and labeling all food, so Muslims can know if any food item has pork in it. This modification affects no other religious affiliation.

Mr. Brabo was also told by Mr. Ogg, the school principal, and two nutritional service employees to “drop it and they were fearful of reprisal from the School District Administration and that funding would be cut if we didn’t fall in line.”

The school’s contact information was publicly posted, and hundreds of patriotic Americans flooded their phone lines in protest.

In response, the school has posted an “explanation” on their website, stating that “Because of limited menu options at smaller schools, pork products are not served at the elementary level and are labeled at the secondary level.”

The school also states: “The Kent region is one of the fastest growing and culturally diverse areas in the United States and the Kent School District is one of the most diverse school districts in Washington State with 28,000 students from over 100 countries and speaking over 130 languages.”

  1. It would be better for the community to force the parents of those filthy little Islamic demon children to send their children to a muslim school..

  2. Disgusting! The muzzies need to start doing things our way or swim back home with cement swim fins. Those that throw away the American ways to support these stinking animals need to go with them.

  3. The simplest answer is home school. Sending your children to a public indoctrination center should be considered child abuse.

  4. Funny, I never hear about Jews making the same complaint. They just shrug their shoulders and deal with it, like real adults. Grow up Islam, you’re too old for a baby sitter.

    • Why should they quit this tactic, since it works every time? They will continue this act until it stops working. And as they are dealing with time serving unionized bureaucratic slugs it will work indefinitely.

  5. Can’t the intellectually challenged, goat shagging pedophiles just refuse to eat what they don’t want to eat??? No. This is nothing more than creeping Muslim Sharia Law and the camel has his head and neck in the tent. Americans who cave to this ridiculous pressure don’t deserve to live in a free country. They are SHEEPLE. I’m a Sheepdog and I protect my flock. These Muslim worms are liars, pedophiles, killers (witness Brussels) and destroyers of our society, If we cater to them we are destroying our own country.
    WAKE UP IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Islamb tastier than pork?

  7. I will be sending my kids to school with pork sandwiches. Muslims can fuck off and die.

  8. […] creeping sharia (which happens to be the name of the linked […]

  9. To paraphrase Fiddler from Roots. You in America now, Moslem man.

  10. Next, any animals killed for school lunch programs will be killed using Halal, which is barbaric. This will be done regardless of non Muslim children or parents object. As I understand it, this is already being done in Britain.

  11. Jews don’t eat pork, but they don’t try to stop others from eating it, nor try to ban it from menus for others. Why does the school bend over backward accommodating these demands? Just don’t order or eat the pork!!!

    There are lots of people who LIKE pork; why should they have to be deprived of it just because some Muslims are offended by the mere presence of pork on the menu. This is asinine and bodes ill for the future of our society.

  12. Once again Obama’s government is forcing Islam/sharia law onto the US infidels.

    “Mr. Brabo was told that if the school system doesn’t “accommodate the Muslim dietary needs that their federal and state funding would be cut or pulled.””

  13. @anon. So what makes you think your local news media would broadcast this kind of biased info, against non-muslims, anyway? I’ll guarantee you this is taking place a lot more frequently than anybody would believe! And most of it is never reported! Remember, our gov’t is headed up by a “stealth jihadi” MUZZLUM–you better believe it!!!!! Time to wake up and smell the rotten cadaver in the room!!!!

    • There is a link to the school’s own website stating quite clearly they do not serve pork.

      Some people will deny the truth even when it smacks them in the face.

      • @CS. But, but, but, that would be getting the info from the ‘horse’s mouth’. Maybe Mr/ Ms Anonymous wants to hear it from the Pig’s mouth, or better yet–THE CAMEL! Sorry, I couldn’t resist! It’s really astounding to me how people who have all the amenities of Western culture will stand on a stack of Bibles and swear till they’re blue in the face, that these DESERT RATS should be allowed to come here and dictate their 7th century ‘camel-piss-drinking’/ ‘no toilet paper’ ways to us! I wonder if ‘anonymous’ would be more comfortable in Saudi Arabia or maybe Iran!

      • Here’s a link to what the district says:

        http://www.kent.k12.wa.us/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&DomainID=1&ModuleInstanceID=1352&ViewID=047E6BE3-6D87-4130-8424-D8E4E9ED6C2A&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=13440&PageID=1

        “Several years ago, changes were made to Kent School District (KSD) breakfast and lunch menus to reduce the pork and red meat options and increase the variety of poultry options for students. These changes were made in accordance with state and federal guidelines and have been designed to provide the most healthy and nutritional options available, offer attractive options that students would enjoy thus reducing waste, and addressing a variety of medical, cultural, and regional needs, tastes, and sensitivities. Because of limited menu options at smaller schools, pork products are not served at the elementary level and are labeled at the secondary level. This practice is not new or isolated to Kent schools.

        Every effort is made to accommodate a variety of health and dietary requirements, including medical needs and food allergies, in the over 15,000 meals served daily in 42 KSD school locations.

        The Kent region is one of the fastest growing and culturally diverse areas in the United States and the Kent School District is one of the most diverse school districts in Washington State with 28,000 students from over 100 countries and speaking over 130 languages.

        The award winning KSD Nutritional Services Department is made up of dedicated professionals that respect and support all students for healthy living and healthy learning. “

  14. Our “friends” at CAIR have published a “helpful” educator’s guide that outlines Muslim Dietary Requirements

    The Qur’an (Islam’s scripture) prohibits
    consumption of alcohol, pork, and any
    pork by-products or derivatives. Therefore,
    practicing Muslims are careful about the
    food they consume and how it is prepared.
    Muslims follow certain standards—
    called Halal (permissible by Islamic
    law)—in slaughter and preparation of
    meat and poultry. Some objectionable
    food items include:
    • Pepperoni, sausage, and hot dogs containing
    pork.
    • Bacon—alone or in soups, quiche, etc.
    • Animal shortening—in breads, puddings,
    cookies, cakes, donuts, etc.
    Vegetable shortening is acceptable.
    • Gelatin—in Jello, desserts, candies,
    marshmallows, chocolates, etc.
    • Lard—in any product.
    • Food ingredients containing alcohol,
    such as vanilla extract and Dijon mustard.
    School lunch items containing ingredients
    derived from pork must be highlighted
    clearly, especially in elementary
    schools. For preschool and elementary
    food programs, many school cafeterias
    have been particularly helpful to Muslim
    parents and students by labeling such
    foods with a prominent visual marker,
    such as a red dot or a picture of a pig, for
    beginning readers.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
