The Race of the Unclean

Here’s a good heartwarming Texas story for you, from ABC13 (Houston):

(11/29/06 — KTRK/KATY, TX) — There’s an awful lot of exciting news when you round the corner on Baker Road. One of two big yellow signs announces a new neighbor is coming soon.

K.I.A., that’s the Katy Islamic Association, plan to build a mosque here.

“It’s not an appropriate place to have a mosque or church,” said resident Barbara Simpson.

It isn’t going over real well.

“As a house of worship, they shouldn’t be disturbing the peace and tranquility of 15 homes,” said resident John Wetmore.

Neighbors tell us they’re concerned about traffic and drainage and a little fear of the unknown. Some of the homeowners even offered to buy the land back for more than a million dollars. The K.I.A. doesn’t seem very interested in the offers.

“We’re not going anywhere,” said Katy Islamic Association member Alvi Muzfar.

So far, not good, right? But there’s more:

SwineSo it seems the community at the end of Baker Road has a pretty good fight. But this fight has gone much farther than many between two neighbors. You see in these fights, sometimes neighbors throw mud at one another. In this instance, they’re wallowing in it.

Craig Baker owns pigs. He’s the guy behind the second big yellow sign on Baker Road. That’s the one announcing Friday night pig races.

“What does it matter, I can do whatever I want with my land, right?” asked landowner Craig Baker.

Sure can. But aren’t pigs on the property line racing on a Friday night a little offensive to a Muslim neighbor?

“The meat of a pig is prohibited in the religion of Islam,” said Katy Islamic Association member Youssof Allam. “It’s looked upon as a dirty creature.”

Yeah, there’s that and also that Friday night is a Muslim holy day.

“That is definitely a slap in the face,” said Allam..

Now before you go thinking Craig Baker is unfair, or full of hate, or somehow racist, hear him out.

Baker has long roots here. His family named the road and when the new neighbors moved in, he tells us, they asked him to move out.

“Basically that I should package up my family and my business and find a place elsewhere,” said Baker. “That’s ridiculous, they just bought the place one week prior and he’s telling me I should think about leaving.”

That new owners deny they ever said anything like that, but Baker isn’t budging.

Baker admits the pigs are a message he is not leaving.

If John Conyers has his way, Mr. Baker has not seen the last of this trouble. His actions are about to become hate crimes, and his words hate speech, if the new Dhimmi Congress has its way.

Keep an eye on this one.

Have these direct neighbors considered suing to re-zone the property to residential or agricultural(or pig farm) use only?

Surely, we read about politicians making such changes routinely . . .even if unrelated - you get the idea reading the article this clip comes from:

Senator Harry "Reid bought undeveloped property on the outskirts of fast-growing Las Vegas for about $400,000 in 1998 -- one parcel outright and a second jointly with Mr. Brown. In 2001, Mr. Reid sold the land for the same price to a corporation he co-owned with Mr. Brown, who in the meantime was getting the land rezoned from residential to commercial use."

Ah, this talk of pig races brings back many fond memories. In fact, I met my dear wife at the pig races. She was running in the third I believe....

I guess tolerance St. is one way only for the imam

One can only hop the Baker farm is generally upwind of and between the mosque and mecca.

Here's a Google map tinyurl link http://tinyurl.com/upjkq to the Baker Rd area of Katy which adjoins Houston, I think I see a compound which resembles a pig farm. I notice residential areas not all that far away. I don't know how up to date the map is, but it might allow someone nearby to check it out. It's about 2 miles away from exit 748 on I-10.

The Islamists are gonna keep push'n and push'n..we'll see if Texas has any guts left.
Mark my words, in the South they'll be "organizations" develop that will take care of the problem...because they aren't going away and their qu'ran says to kill all non believers...this is not a hard concept to grasp given it's thousand year history and current assertiveness. A time to kill and a time for peace. We're in the killing time folks..wake up, convert or pay the dhimme.

Will the loser be barbecued and served the following Friday? Would this be insensitive to the other pigs?

Not likely, buddy. We are outnumbered by white Yankees and minorities down here. No more Klan.

The pig idea is very much to my liking though. Someone should began making "pig contaminated" ammo. Pork skins mixed in with shotgun pellets, that sort of thing. That way, Muslims shot by this type of ammo would not get their 72 virgins.
