Kind of expensive for a hate crime, isn’t it?

I try to keep up with the news from home. For some reason. Anyway, it looks as though someone vandalized the Holocaust Memorial in Lynn Massachusetts yesterday with five pieces of pork.

Now, I know stuff is cheaper where you are, but what the hell? Those are thick center cut pork chops, at the very least. Pork roasts, even. That’s going to be a good £30 worth of meat, easy. And so gracelessly displayed.

I would have thought bacon the obvious choice here. Cheap, instantly recognizable, drapes over objects in artfully disrespectful arrangements. What kind of monster drops a giant meat bomb and walks?

Not a Muslim, obviously.

I’m betting it’s some kind of butcher shop heist gone embarrassingly wrong.

Which puts it squarely back in “asian male” territory.

I don’t think Jews are as bothered by that sort of thing as t’other guys are, so what’s the point?

I kind of go for the teenage Asian Shoplifter theory:

“Brother, I just lifted these huge steaks!”

“Hussein, you dumbass, those are pork steaks!

“Ah, shit!”

There was a story about some dimwits who broke into a slaughter house and stole what they thought were boxes of prime steak, turned out to boxes of cow assholes.

(probably slated for the galactic market. “Earth-brand cow rectums, finest in the universe”)

Not everyone has the chops to pull that off.

Oh you mean to say someone doesn’t like the supposedly official story that 6 million Jews died in gas chambers et al., that don’t actually exist?

Well – they may have apoint. Red cross reports put it at 890k – max.

Meanwhile, Jewish Bolsheviks slaughtered 86 million ethnic Russians ….

Noting that it is in Lynn, Massachusetts; I doubt it would be what the Brits would call Asian ‘yutes’. I rather think that it would be someone ideologically affiliated with our current regime.

I agree with Mr. Bahadur.

I am _very_ relieved that it was not a symbol of hate.
Nazis… I hate those guys.

Another likely culprit: a furbearer baiting gone wrong.

Without DNA testing, we mustn’t rule out either that this is just a flotsam after nearby motorcycle club event or ATF raid or Predator drone test or summat.

The world is getting just stupider by the day.

And it seems the process is accelerating. I blame the increased CO2 levels in the atmosphere.

I imagine there will be worldwide riots and bombs outside embassies over this outrage. Oh, sorry, wrong sort of pork-eschewers.

This is pure virulent porkocaust. An outrage!
Small girls will hide in the attics and write the diaries asking why this was allowed to happen.
Why do you hate small girls?
What will be next?
Pedal-actuated brain bashing machine?
Bear and eagle in the same cage?
