Apparently dipping bullets in bacon-grease is an effective anti-Muslim tactic. At least, it is according to a group of weekend warriors from Texas, who, in a video posed by AJPlus on Twitter, extol the virtues of bacon as an efficient tool of fighting Muslims.
Idiots with Guns
We’re watching, in real-time, a religion become an ethnicity.
Once upon a time, “Muslim” referred to a religion, and “Arab” referred to a population of people who include most people from the Middle East (excluding Assyrians, Kurds, Turks, and Iranians, among others).
Nowadays, especially in the White Noise Machine that composes most of the Alt Right media, if you’re a Muslim, you’re a specific ethnicity by default, and that ethnicity is Arabic. So if you’re a Uyghur from Xinjiang, China, or a Tatar Muslim in Russia, you don’t exist. If you’re a Palestinian Christian, or a Mizrahi Jew, you don’t exist either.
And do you know who buys hard into the White Noise Machine?
If you answered right-wing militias, you’re absolutely correct. And these guys can be characters; for instance, in a video that was posted by AJPlus, a group out of Texas claimed that, in the event of the “Arab uprising” they believe is inevitable, they’re going to use bullets dripped in pig blood or smeared with bacon grease.
Texas ranks first in population of Muslim Americans, with a whole 400,000 some people. That’s roughly 0.7% of the total population of the state.
During the video, one of the militia men dips the bullet in pork, explaining:
A lot of us here are using either pig’s blood or bacon grease on our bullets. So that when you shoot a Muslim they go straight to hell. That’s what they believe in their religion.
I mean, the stupidity of this is flabbergasting. I’m sure some Muslim, somewhere, has accidentally eaten pork before. They are not going to hell. If you want more information about the prohibition on pork, check the Old Testament, since that’s where it comes from.
The whole line of reasoning is skewed by the sort of cultural ignorance that I all but expect from people like this.
Tensions are running high in the Lone IQ Point State, though, and have been ever since two men were shot and killed at a “Draw Muhammad” contest. One of these anti-Muslim militia members went so far as to publish the names and contact information of innocent Muslim families whom they labeled “sympathizers” who refused to speak out against the religion at public meetings.
In the video, another militia man, while showing off his prowess with a shotgun, warned: “Don’t f*ck with white people.”
I believe he means to say, “don’t f*ck with idiots.” That’s the only thing I can say to a person who thinks Muslims can’t be white.
