A Campaign group opposing halal slaughter at a Skegness abattoir has gathered almost 100 members in a matter of days.Yet admit they have never visited an Halal abattoir.Today they will see some real cruel bastards from the BNP and the National Front. So its OK to butcher 6 million Jews but not OK to Kosher livestock. The fact that Jesus spent 33 years eating Kosher meat seems of no importance to these insular souls.
If you lie down with dogs there is always the risk of catching fleas and these bastards are a right pack of dogs that will be in Skegness today thanks to Tess Turners and her mates
The ‘Say NO to halal slaughter in Skegness’ facebook group was set up after it was announced a business practising the religious methods was preparing to move into the town’s Heath Road abattoir.
Founding member Tess Turner, of Alford, claims the practices of slaughtering animals without stunning them first are inhumane and illegal if sold for consumption by those who are not Jewish or Muslim. She has also stressed that her motivations are purely based on animal welfare issues and in no way condones racism or religious intolerance.
She said: “The race card has been thrown at us time and time again but this is literally to do with the cruelty to animals.
“Animals will be made to suffer unnecessarily and it’s just not on.”
UK law requires animals to be stunned prior to slaughtering but Muslim and Jewish communities are given an exemption in accordance with their religion.
That exemption, however, does not cover slaughtering non-stunned animals for consumption by people other than Jews and Muslims.
Tess believes the increasing proportion of halal meat found in supermarkets and restaurants shows this law is being flouted and can’t understand the need for any more of the slaughterhouses.
Although statistics from the Food Standards Authority have revealed that more than 80 per cent of animals slaughtered in halal abattoirs in the UK are stunned before being killed, Tess believes the lower strength electrical stunning that is carried out to immobilise the animal, still leaves them conscious and sensitive to pain.
She would prefer halal slaughtermen gassed their animals unconscious like the methods practised by Muslim-run abattoirs in Germany.
Skegness resident Ben Peel, however, feels the opposition to halal slaughter demonises a minority religion and believes the supposedly more humane methods implemented in other slaughterhouses are little better when carried out on an industrial scale.
He said: “If you are a meat eater the business of slaughtering animals is not pleasant whatever method is used.”
The Halal Food Authority’s president Masood Khawaja, has also made assurances that animal welfare is among the three core principals central to halal slaughtering practises.
Not to be outdone by fascist rivals, the BNP, the National Front have said that they will be demonstrating against the halal slaughterhouse in Skegness. The explicitly racist party announced that it will be holding a demonstration in Skegness town centre, “possibly just off Lumley Road”, on Sat 15th September.
Apparently “All this is for Evil” that the slaughterhouse generates is “For The Bloody Immigrants”, “For The Sakeof a Perverted Sick Religion and a Backward Culture”. Whichever caps lock-deficient Nazi typed this left us in no doubt that xenophobia rather than animal welfare is the dominant issue.
The move has split the existing campaign against the Heath Road slaughterhouse. Tess Turner, who is admin of a number of Facebook pages and groups against the slaughterhouse has said she will not support any “political” march on the issue. She told the East Coast Target that “The reason I started the campaign page was nothing to do with politics and race, it’s just an animal welfare point of view.” She’s obviously realised that standing alongside a bunch of unreconstructed Hitler worshippers will be a bad PR move.
The National Front represent the white supremacist politics that the BNP have spent the past few decades pretending they don’t support any more in an attempt to be more “credible”. The NF’s constitution supports the halt of non-white immigration into the UK, the forced repatriation of non-whites already here, bringing back the death penalty and birching, the outlawing of abortion and discrimination against homosexuals. A typical post on their Facebook page supports “White Pride Nationwide” with a very Nazi-like NF logo and quotes white supremacist David Lane’s 14 word phrase. Asylum seekers are referred to as “Third World Filfth” and they state that anyone who opposes them is “Red Filth” and “Unclen Scum”.
These wannabe “master race” members are probably still smarting from their humiliation at the hands of anti-fascists in Derbyshire a couple of years ago. An East Midlands NF “Day of Action” was brought to an abrupt end by the “reds” who took the NF’s flag and leaflets while the handful of Aryan warriors meekly surrendered. This time it’s a national demo so they may get as many as 20 to turn up and hide behind police lines. We hope the people of Lincolnshire give these Nazi chancers the boot.
