Vermont restaurant removes bacon sign because a Muslim finds it offensive

Rate this post

Lack of courage will be the death of America.
A restaurant in Winooski, Vermont called Sneakers Bistro removed a sign “Yield Sneakers Bacon,” meaning yield to the allure of Sneakers Bistro’s delicious bacon, after a Muslim complained that she was offended by the sign.
Winooski is a small city of 7,267 in population, located at the mouth of the Winooski River. The city is part of the Burlington-South Burlington, VT Metropolitan Statistical Area. According to the 2000 census, the racial makeup of the city was overwhelmingly white (90.55%), with only 1.25% African American, 0.52% Native American, 5.40% Asian, 0.05% Pacific Islander, and 0.53% from other races.

WPTZ reports that there used to be a sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displaying the words “Yield Sneakers Bacon.”
But the bistro’s owner, Marc Dysinger, took the sign down on Aug. 22, 2014, when a woman wrote in a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum that the bacon sign was insensitive to those who do not eat pork, and that as a vegan living in a Muslim household, she was personally offended by it.
Dysinger told WPTZ he had reached out to the woman and proactively took the sign down. Dysinger said he regrets any harm caused by the sign, and that his goal is to provide a joyful place for the entire community, not to cause stress or bad feelings.
Speaking on behalf of the city, Winooski’s city manager Katherine Decarreau said “The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable. It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation. The City has to pay attention to a lot of factors while acting within what we can regulate.”
USA Today reports that the bistro’s removal of its bacon sign sparked a firestorm of criticisms.
“I actually liked the restaurant and food but will never return as I am offended that my family has a 200 year old history of fighting and dying for our Freedom and that the owners aren’t courageous enough to stand up to an intolerant and unreasonable person,” wrote one commenter, Steven Conklin, on a public Facebook page about the controversy.
So Sneakers’ owner Marc Dysinger engaged a public-relations firm, People Making Good.
Nicole Ravlin of People Making Good said the bistro should focus on its local community and customers rather than addressing national and international comments because most of the social media criticisms have come from outside Vermont.

What good is the Constitution’s First Amendment guarantee and protection of freedom of speech when Americans like Marc Dysinger willingly muzzle themselves just because a Muslim claimed to be offended by a bacon sign?

  1. Whites are too nice to the unwashed off color multitudes who wish them dead. This is like a flea on the tail of the dog wagging the entire dog. Why cant we just tell them “hey if you don’t like it here go back and play in whatever middle east sandbox you crawled out of.”
    Muslims are moving here more an more and demanding we bend to their sharia law. Within a couple of miles from me are now a few halal islam kosher grocery stores. I have been so tempted to ask for 2 pounds of their best center cut pork chops and a pound of bacon
    We as a country have become so pussified afraid of a gang of primitive sand and jungle savages telling us how to run our country.

  2. If somebody said they were offended by MY sign,I’d have to ask them why I,and the 98% of America,should change OUR ways to accommodate the 2% who have moved here with the expectation of our Country that they’d become AMERICANS,adopting our culture as their own and renouncing their loyalty to the Country they left behind. If they can give me a convincing argument to that question,I’d consider taking a poll of my customers on the issue,and the popular vote would prevail.

    • trunkjunkie . . . that is a marvelous solution–have patrons vote whether the sign stays or goes. I would almost vote that the woman who complained has never eaten in this restaurant. She just wants to piss and moan, and get all those around her to change their God given right of free agency.

      • Auntie, I was thinking the same thing, probably never ate there. A case to see just how far they can push before they ramp it up. The same thing is happening all over the country, you can see the steps as they happen.
        And here the people sit, like the frog in the pan of warming water because they are taking baby steps, testing the water.
        BTW, if it were my restaurant, it would be a cold day you know where, before I changed the sign.

    • Taking a poll of Sneakers Bistro’s customers would simply affirm owner Marc Dysinger’s spinelessness. Vermont and Vermonters are decidedly liberal and Democrat. The USA Today article I referenced included comments by the bistro’s customers in support of what the owner did.

  3. While they are at it, why not remove bacon from the menu? And, why not remove all pork and offer muslim meals? Why not also install a bell for the noon call to prayer?….c’mon, this is ridiculous. He should take a hard look at himself and realize a real man isn’t concerned with offending anyone, only doing what is right as God declares.

  4. Amazing! And so predictable. Vermont is on a direct pipeline from New York City, and has been adversely affected by the worst of their liberals. Burlington and Brattleboro, at opposite ends of the state are extremely left-leaning. If you don’t like hipsters, don’t go there.

  5. Bacon grease should be dumped on the raghead,
    accidentally of course.

  6. Dr. E. If I may;
    Cultures savage of the darkened cursed,
    you did not require to assimilate;
    Now your head from its resting place is to separate.
    Heirs of The West what have you done?
    And he will be a wild man;
    his hand will be against every man,
    and every man’s hand against him;
    and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
    Literature, poetry Dead Old White Men books,
    with your professed wretched disdain you call them to blame.
    Your future of pain and death they foretold.
    Cultures savage of the darkened cursed,
    you give quarter with full embrace.
    Heirs of The West what have you done?
    Full Poem: Heirs of The West what have you done?

  7. All of this is followed by the fact that what some refer to as the left, I refer to as progressive globalist elites, in its program of destruction of sovereign nations refers to “Nationalism’ as ‘Fascism’ when any reasonably educated person knows ‘Nation First Before Globalism’ is not the evil as Globalism is from its very inception…Fascism.

  8. Political correctness and multiculturalism have been disasterous for this nation. Self-important slow minded liberals and rotten white guilt suffers want nothing more than to destroy everything that has made this country great. Fuck political correctness and all who are enslaved by it. And if you white guilt suffers are so sympathetic why don’t you sell your McMansion and move to the hood so you can truly experience hate? This country is overflowing with erroneously educated dimwits and it makes me quite sad.

  9. And we wonder why the West is losing the Jihad to the camel-washers. 🙁
    What a wuss.

  10. Hey, it was an advertisement– if he doesn’t want to buy the product, he doesn’t have-to. Offended? (This wienieness is cultural suicide.)

  11. That business owner just cooked his own two strips of bacon!! What a weenie!! Leeann

  12. I gave EVERYBODY here a tick or a thumb up. The BS level is above my 5′-10″ and I’m at my end w/it. Eat shit and die foreigners. Creep back to the sands you crawled out of, ASAP!
    I NEVER learned Italian because my parents LEFT the Old World, and you idiots want to drag it here. I have a better idea: let’s drag you all back to whatever, and if the Atlantic & Pacific are in the way, well you better HOLD your breath, OK, cause we’re NOT stopping for breath breaks.
    Go Satan, and never trouble us again. Good thing I’m a Christian anarchist pacifist or I’d be mad enough to suggest we just garberate you.

  13. or I’d be mad enough to suggest we just garberate you.
    LOL – I have no idea what ‘garberate’ means, but I hope it is as painful as it sounds. 🙂

  14. “Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means, at the point of highest reality. A chastity or honesty or mercy which yields to danger will be chaste or honest or merciful only on conditions. Pilate was merciful till it became risky.” — C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
    Courage is the attribute that underpins all moral standards.

  15. Oh yeah? Well I find mozzzlems offensive. Keep the Bacon. Get rid of the mozzzlems.
