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

Published

on

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.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
