Mail incites religious hatred

September 18, 2010

The Mail has published a story called ‘Britain goes halal…but no-one tells the public.  How famous institutions serve ritually slaughtered meat with no warning.’  The paper tries to hide the undercurrent of religious hatred (with added racism) in this article by mentioning animal rights, but this isn’t a convincing stance.  Slaughter is, by it’s very nature, inhumane.  There simply isn’t a nice way to kill an animal for human consumption.  I intend to look more deeply into this story tomorrow because there’s so much wrong with it;  the bias that fails to mention kosher until the end, the repeated mention of ‘secrecy’ regarding supply of halal meat, the pictures of ‘proper, white British’ people seemingly eating halal, all smiley and unknowing, the use of a completely unrelated quote from the Pope and the complete fallacy that the Mail is in any way concerned with animal rights.

Until then, this is the reaction from the “Not racist, not violent, just no longer silent” members of the EDL, some of The Mail’s target audience.

It’s reactions like this that The Mail provokes, and then it has the audacity to act all surprised and upset when things like this happen:  ENA March, July, London,  EDL Bradford demo August 2010.  For shame, Daily Mail and Paul Dacre, stop fuelling the hatred!

    "he was so upset at how much the animal suffered he vomited" Considering the animal was probably battery reared in the first place, death was probably the best thing that ever happened to itThey don't care about animal rights and I doubt they'd care whether or not the bacon in their sarnie crated or not during its life. It's racism/bigotry/xenophobia straight out.

    I read this story online last night, and it struck me as slightly odd. If you're selling Halal food then you are probably doing it to attract Muslim customers, therefore you wouldn't keep quiet about it.What seems more likely is that these places are getting cheap meat from abroad some of which comes from Halal sources. They aren't buying British when they probably should be. Surely that's the bigger scandal here.
