Australian Butcher Refuses to Remove Sign After it Was Declared to be Offensive

Published

An Australian butcher refuses to change his shop’s sign that states its products are “not halal-certified.”

Naturally, leftists are up in the arms about this sign and believe it is “inciting hatred” towards Muslim people.

The Valley Butchers in Adelaide, South Australia, are caught in a web of controversy over a complaint filed to the Australian Advertising Standards Authority after the owner placed a sign that read “not halal-certified” on the store front. The store argues that the sign was a factual answer to a question they frequently receive about the origin of their meat.

“The sign is only stating that we are not halal approved,” the store claims, according to a SBS News Australia report. “In no way is it meant in a malice way. We were getting asked quite frequently whether we are halal approved, so I am just stating that we are not, and that saves a lot of wasted time.”

But the complainants didn’t agree with the store’s argument.  One was quoted in the Ad Standards complaint stating that the sign “perpetuate[s] a culture of vilification towards religious minorities, that results in harm towards them…. It pokes fun of a specific group of people based on religious belief.”

The board actually agreed, declaring that the sign was “inciting hatred or contempt” against Muslims. “Using the phrase ‘non-Halal certified’ in conjunction with imagery of Australian animals was a suggestion that Islamic dietary practices are not Australian,” the board stated.

The butchers responded by changing the sign to read “not halal-certified’ and have no intentions of making any more changes.

However, the advertising watchdog still found the sign’s message to not be inclusive. The shop is now being threatened with legal action to enforce the change along with potential prosecution for using the iconic imagery of an Australian emu and kangaroo in their sign. As much as the politically correct Left wants to infringe on free speech rights in America, they have not been as successful as in countries countries like Australia or Canada, which have weaker free speech protections compared to America.

The Left is relentless and will try to find any possible space to insert their politics.  So no venue is safe from their political harassment.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
