Obama admin bans pork products from federal prisons – you’ll be FURIOUS when you hear why

The Obama administration has banned bacon, pork chops, pork links, ham and all other pork products from all federal prisons.

But for those concerned that the U.S. government is bending to the will of Muslim inmates, the Bureau of Prisons, which falls under the charge of the Justice Department, insists the change was made based on a survey of prisoners’ food preferences, the Washington Post reported.

Apparently inmates just don’t like bacon … who knew?

“Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat?” prison bureau spokesman Edmond Ross told the Post, presumably with a straight face. “Pork has been the lowest-rated food by inmates for several years.”

Inmates can still obtain packaged pork rinds and precooked bacon at the prison commissary, according to the Post, assuming they have the means to pay for it.

Naturally, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is thrilled with the decision.

“In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates,’ said CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper. “We hope it’s not an indication of an increasing number of Muslims in the prison system.”

The nation’s pork producers, on the other hand, who first learned of the ban on Monday when contacted by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for comment, are not as pleased.

“I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon,'” National Pork Producers Council spokesman Dave Warner told the Post.

Smart man.

“We’re going to find out how this came about and go from there,” Warner added. “We wouldn’t rule out any options to resolve this.”

They may want to start with a close look at how the questions were structured in the “survey.” Ether way, it seems as if the battle over bacon has commenced in earnest.

    That’s plain bull crap, pork is the most eaten meat in the US, bacon, sausage, and ham not to mention pork-chops account for this and I’m sure inmates love it as much as everyone else. Ovomit is just looking after his muslim pig brothers.. Lets have an honest survey taken of ALL inmates by an outside company NOT some candy-ass government group.
