More on the Dolts Trying to Stop Muslim Cemetery

Man, the story about the Islamophobic bigots in Texas who are trying to prevent a Muslim cemetery from being allowed in their town just keeps getting dumber and dumber. Just listen to some of the staggeringly stupid things they’re saying to justify their bigotry:

Some residents of the Farmersville, which has a population of 3,000 said that their main concern was the way in which they believed Muslims inter their dead.

“When somebody dies they bury them at that time. They don’t know whether they were shot, diseased or anything else. All they do is wrap them in a sheet from the grave and bury them,” Troy Gosnell told the local CBS station.

Patricia Munroe voiced fears that local drinking water could be polluted.

“We used to grow onions here. We sure enough don’t want to be growing bodies,” said another resident, Mont Hendrick.

Uh yeah, because that’s what happens when you bury dead Muslims (but only dead Muslims), you grow new Muslims. Probably GMO Muslims too. And you have to laugh at the sudden and convenient concern for the environment, which they would totally be expressing if it were a Christian cemetery too (and since less than 10% of all deaths have autopsies performed, these risks, which exist only in their minds, would be exactly the same).

Feelings ran high at a town meeting earlier this week, where direct action was proposed to prevent the Muslims pressing ahead with the project.

Take and dump pig’s blood and put pig’s heads on a post so they won’t buy the land,” one resident said.

He’s a fucking genius.

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    At least it’s not Islamophobia. That doesn’t exist.

    These bigots have just the right amount of knowledge to spread fear without having a clue of what they’re talking about.

    In Islam, the idea is to bury the deceased ASAP (the idea behind it is superstition of course, but that’s a different topic). It does not mean medically relevant procedures to determine cause of death aren’t allowed.

    “All they do is wrap them in a sheet from the grave and bury them”, Troy Gosnell told the local CBS station.

    First of all, what does he mean in a sheet “from the grave”? WTF?

    Second, that’s not all they do. The body is ceremonially cleansed and actually bathed before being wrapped in a specific way before the burial.

    It should be noted that orthodox Jews also bury the dead ASAP and also object to autopsies.

    “We used to grow onions here. We sure enough don’t want to be growing bodies,

    But ..don’t onions have bodies too? I mean they’re usually called stems, leaves, and bulbs, plants, but these are botanical bodies just as much as humans and pigs and rhinoceri have zoological bodies and for that. matter, comets, asteroids, planets and stars have astronomical bodies. To say nothing of geological equivalent terms like ore bodies and soil being composed of womcasts ie shit and humus and rock scrapings well, well aged.

    Did he only grow intangible, incorporeal ghosts of onions before?

    colnago80 “It should be noted that orthodox Jews also bury the dead ASAP and also object to autopsies.”

    Sure, but they bury preserved, on account of all the pickled and salty food they eat (and their mothers make them take an extra helping, on account of them being such thin boys. Oi! Just take it already. And keep the dish, maybe? It’s no bother. Abigail, take this out to your brother’s car!).

     

    Plus, they’re not Muslins.

    I can understand their concern. After the drone bombs their house, they bury their dead and then proceed to shoot their AK-47s in the air all night. I have to work in the morning and do not need that racket!

    I can think of one legitimate reason that they didn’t mention. In the event of the Zombie Apocalypse the residents would have to deal with jihadist zombies.

    This being rural Texas, however, the zombies would all starve to death in a couple of days.

    Most of the people making those comments probably couldn’t care less about the cemetery. They are just pleased to have chance to beat up on a minority while the rest of the townsfolk praise them for it. Until yesterday they were regarded as morons; today they are hailed as American heroes.

    I love the smell of burning house fires, and the sounds of AK-47s firing in the morning. sounds like:

    WOLVERINES!!!!!!!!!

    Someone should make a movie about it, eh?
