When someone left a couple strips of bacon on the door of a Las Vegas mosque, the FBI sprang into action.
So did the Las Vegas Police and the Las Vegas Sheriff’s Department.
Because this is a vicious hate crime, law enforcement will dedicate as much manpower and resources as necessary to bring this vigilante to justice!
The FBI is leading the investigation – the same FBI who couldn’t be bothered to investigate the mosque that the Boston Bombers attended, by the way – and are searching for a man who smells delicious.
The crime took place at the Masjid Tawheed Mosque and is being investigated as a “hate crime.” They even have surveillance video of the dastardly deed:
Muslims are forbidden from touching and eating bacon, as it unclean according to Islam.
Here’s how the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported it:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations called the incident at Masjid-e-Tawheed, near the intersection of Jones Boulevard and Viking Road, a “desecration,” in a release Tuesday morning and said that it was one of many recent attacks on Muslim houses of worship nationwide.”Muslims are prohibited from consuming pork products and bigots often use pigs or pork to offend Muslim sensibilities.”
A man arriving for the fajr prayer Sunday noticed the bacon about 5:45 a.m. and alerted other congregants. Another man grabbed a napkin, took the bacon and put it in the trash, and other men entered the mosque.
Las Vegas police responded to a suspicious situation call at the address, 6170 W. Viking Road, at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday, call logs show. “There (were) slices of bacon on the door and on the premises,” Metro officer Larry Hadfield said Tuesday morning.
“It’s being investigated possibly as a hate crime,” Hadfield said, noting that Metro had videotapes of the incident, but that no one had been identified.
Why are three separate law enforcement agencies looking for this guy? Because white men armed with breakfast meats is a greater threat to Western civilization than Muslims armed with Kalashnikovs. Because this is Bizarro World, where offending Muslim Americans is a greater crime than Muslim terrorism.
Just for some perspective: In 2014, there were 635 reported Anti-Jewish “hate crimes” in the United States and 178 “Anti-Muslim” hate crimes.
