(Conservative Tribune) If you’ve ever had any doubt that President Barack Obama caters to Muslims, this story might change your mind.
According to the Washington Post, inmates in federal prisons will no longer be served pork products in prison.
Apparently, inmates just don’t each much pork anymore.
However, there is probably much more to this story, and it probably involves how Obama is quick to accommodate Muslims and Muslim organizations.
Recently, Obama has made room for thousands of Syrian refugees in the country while deporting Christians. He has consistently indulged them, regardless of the danger it poses to Americans.
So this move to indulge Muslims and their beliefs should not come as a surprise to anyone — except maybe federal prisoners who wonder what happened to their menu.
The Bureau of Prisons, which runs 122 federal penitentiaries and feeds their 206,000 prisoners daily, said the decision came after a survey of prisoners’ food preferences revealed a lack of interest in pork.
“Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat?” Edmond Ross, prison bureau spokesman told the Post.
“Pork has been the lowest-rated food by inmates for several years,” he added.
The move, which began with the new fiscal year Oct. 1, caused a commotion among the nation’s pork producers — and we would bet a few inmates as well.
“I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon,’” Dave Warner, National Pork Producers Council spokesman said in an interview.
We tend to agree with this assessment considering the amount of bacon-flavored items found on grocery store shelves.
It should be noted that inmates can still buy packaged pork rinds and precooked bacon — if they can pay for it.
