Got a Butterball turkey for Thanksgiving? You’re eating halal

Robert Spencer

In “Happy Halal Thanksgiving” in the American Thinker today, Pamela Geller reveals the shocking truth: if you’ve gotten a Butterball turkey for Thanksgiving, it’s halal:

Did you know that the turkey you’re going to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day this Thursday is probably halal? If it’s a Butterball turkey, then it certainly is — whether you like it or not.

In my book Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, I report at length on the meat industry’s halal scandal: its established practice of not separating halal meat from non-halal meat, and not labeling halal meat as such. And back in October 2010, I reported more little-noted but explosive new revelations: that much of the meat in Europe and the United States is being processed as halal without the knowledge of the non-Muslim consumers who buy it.

I discovered that only two plants in the U.S. that perform halal slaughter keep the halal meat separated from the non-halal meat, and they only do so because plant managers thought it was right to do so. At other meat-packing plants, animals are slaughtered following halal requirements, but then only a small bit of the meat is actually labeled halal.

Now here is yet more poisonous fruit of that scandal.

A citizen activist and reader of my website wrote to Butterball, one of the most popular producers of Thanksgiving turkeys in the United States, asking them if their turkeys were halal. Wendy Howze, a Butterball Consumer Response Representative, responded: “Our whole turkeys are certified halal.”

In a little-known strike against freedom, yet again, we are being forced into consuming meat slaughtered by means of a torturous method: Islamic slaughter….

CAJ note: A few years ago we began buying all of our meat, poultry, and produce in season from a family-owned farm in a nearby town. It seemed a good way to contribute to small, independent farms and to enjoy wholesome food. Our turkey, and those we’re donating this year, were raised and processed by them. If readers are able to find such a farm in your area, we hope you will consider this option for your family’s food.

…H.R. 3432 is not about revitalizing anything.  It is another piece of legislation that has been waiting for the right time to be introduced and is part of an incremental long term plan to end grazing on public lands, thereby reducing the number of producers who are not corporately, globally connected. Having driven the cattle producers into financial ruin, the DoI is now prepared to step forward and permanently retire grazing leases and this bill makes it clear that the intent is to end the practice of grazing leases altogether.

This bill is an open attempt to begin land sequestering, removing it from public use and habitation as demanded under the UN Biodiversity non-human habitat map…
