    A sign advertising the bacon at a Vermont diner has been taken down after a Muslim resident complained about the sign on the Internet and sparked a massive backlash against the restaurant, Sneakers Bistro.


    In June, in return for taking part in a local volunteer initiative to plant flower beds in the cityís traffic medians, the diner was awarded a sign on a lamp post that said ďYield for Sneakers Bacon.Ē A woman took issue with the sign, calling it insensitive to those who donít eat pork, according to WPTZ.


    The womanís objection, which she posted online, prompted several Facebook and Yelp comments calling on Sneakers Bistro to take down the sign. The dinerís owners contacted the woman to apologize and tell her the sign has been removed.

    I would have told the "woman" to go kiss a goat but since this is a LibTard haven...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    The woman who complained about the sign defined herself first and foremost as a vegan - now THAT's an intolerant group!

    That explains it.

    We have a lot of Muslims around here, and the grocery stores still sell bacon, as do the restaurants.

    There is a rather small but still a significant chunk of Muslims who live in my area. Apparently it is just the more tolerant Midwest, but I saw no protests or complaints of bacon signs at the state fair a few weeks back. And trust me, bacon wrapped everything was EVERYWHERE.

    F'ing morons. What if they were talking about turkey bacon?

    "The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable,” Mayor Katherine Decarreau told the television network.
    WTF? Who wants to live in a community that is "not comfortable". You clowns deserve each other.

    “We are here to serve people breakfast, not politics,” the owners wrote in a separate Facebook post over the weekend.
    It's not politics you cowards. It's a simple sign about food and where to get it.

    The horror:

    Be Not Afraid.

    Living uncomfortably is cool? No wonder liberals are always miserable. They seek out discomfort in their daily life.
    The price of freedom is something the protected will never know.
