Schlussel: How Dare You Sell Food to Muslims

Debbie Schlussel is one of the craziest people I’ve ever encountered. She almost makes Pam Geller look sane and rational by comparison. If anyone sees Muslim boogeymen more often and in more places than Geller, it’s Schlussel. She’s so nuts that other wingnuts think she should tone it down. And boy is she upset that Whole Foods actually sells food to Muslims.

The company is bragging that it is the first national supermarket chain to have a Ramadan marketing campaign, complete with social media.

How crazy is Schlussel? She thinks Michelle Malkin isn’t Islamophobic enough:

My reports didn’t stop ignoramuses like Michelle Malkin Fraudkin from blindly urging people to buy goods at jihadist-enabling Whole Foods, merely because its CEO was under fire for opposing Obamacare. Only morons–and that includes Fraudkin, bigtime–believe that the enemy of my enemy is my friend, even when they enable and financially support Islamic terrorism.

And you’d think a right winger would understand the concept of a free market, but apparently not:

And, now, there is the Ramadan crap, solely for monetary reasons. Yes, like ALL other American corporations, Whole Foods is whoring itself out to Islam for profits. And as more and more Muslims populate America through immigration and high birth rates, more and more corporations will shill for jihadist interests. It’s that simple. We’ve already seen it with Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and others. And now this from Whole Jihad Foods. The question is, how long ’til Whole Foods no longer carries pork and other non-halal products? Answer: Not long.

Wanna bet? See, Whole Foods is in business to make money. They certainly can’t afford to stop selling pork to appease one percent of the population, most of whom, like most Jews, couldn’t care less what anyone else eats even while they follow their religious food rules themselves. And the Jewish Schlussel should damn well know that. I’d be willing to bet my entire net worth that Whole Foods never, ever stops selling pork or other non-halal products. They might not sell it in a particular store in a heavily Muslim area, like Dearborn, but that’s just good inventory control — you don’t keep stocking what you can’t sell.

    I was at Whole Foods a few days ago, and no one was waving flaming pitchforks at their featured selection of halal frozen foods.

    No one goes berserk (does she?) when the supermarkets stock up on and prominently display Passover foods, tamale makings for Cinco de Mayo, and hams for easter.

  • Ramel

    Yes, like ALL other American corporations, Whole Foods is whoring itself out to Islam for profits.

    What is she, a fricking marxist or something?

  • D. C. Sessions

    Someone should tell her to organize a boycott of all Halal foods.

  • Sanjiv Sarwate

    Was she one of the idiots who flipped out over Campbell’s having the temerity to have a line of halal-certified soups? I can’t wade through the sewer of her blog archives to find out.

    She is emblematic of a particular strain of the conservative movement that views it as a violation of their rights that people they don’t like actually exist. It’s the same folks who flip out at the fact that people can press 2 for Spanish. And who, in an earlier day, probably flipped out when a non-white person bought a house in their neighborhood.

    Heavily Muslim Dearborn (or Dearbornistan as Debs likes to call it) is also home to something called the Dearborn Ham company, a rather prosperous concern. Seems like Muslims are more than able and willing to tolerate other people’s dietary habits within their midst.

    Someone should probably remind Debbie Schlussel that if she had been around in the 1930s. people like Debbie Schlussel (i.e. Gerald L.K. Smith and Charles Coughlin) would have had similar opinions about Debbie Schlussel as Debbie Schlussel has about Muslims today. Irony!

    But if you feed them, they reproduce! You know, like tribbles.

    And if you feed them after midnight….well….

    Rick R:

    And if you feed them after midnight….well….

    Uh, Rick, that’s what Ramadan is all about.

  • Rick R

    That just might be the next Wingnut™ meme- Muslims = Gremlins!!!!11

  • Midnight Rambler

    Plus they come from countries that are deserts – obviously to keep water from getting on them!

    Holy crap, how did we not notice this before???

  • BobApril

    I realize I’m generalizing, even stereotyping here. But apart from people like Ed who endure Schlussel’s rants for our benefit – is there any overlap at all between Whole Foods customers and Schlussel’s audience?

  • Nemo

    I can imagine a time — not soon — when they stop selling pork, but it won’t have anything to do with Islam.

  • James Hanley

    Ed: you’d think a right winger would understand the concept of a free market

    No, I wouldn’t. I’ve never actually seen any evidence that they do. After all, they want to ban porn, make all businesses close down on Sunday, and they’re frequently anti-imports. They may be pro-business, but that’s a different thing altogether.

    Naturalcynic: “And if you feed them after midnight….well….”

    Uh, Rick, that’s what Ramadan is all about.

    Gee, sundown comes pretty late where you live, doesn’t it? 😉

    Well, these are the same folks who had a major freakout because Ford sells cars and trucks to gays, so whaddaya expect?

    Here in the Detroit area there’s a local chain of supermarkets that’s Jewish-owned, sells kosher lunchmeat (with its own dedicated slicer), chicken, etc., but also sells ham, liverwurst, lobsters, scallops, shrimp, clams, oysters, pork, and scrapple (warms this native Philadelphian’s heart). They’re very dedicated to serving local sub-markets. At the Commerce Township store (in the heart of the Japanese expat community), they have a large selection of Japanese products. On any given weekday morning, the store is like a community center for Japanese housewives looking for familiar stuff to feed the family.

    Guess what, Schlussel? They’re in business to make money. They’re not going to stop selling to someone just because you want them to.

    Huh. Whole Paycheck opposes health care reform? One more reason to avoid them. >.>

    “And as more and more Muslims populate America through immigration and high birth rates, more and more corporations will shill for jihadist interests.” Notice how Schlussel uses “Muslim” and “jihadist” interchangeably. Real nice.
