Fraternité? Laissez-les manger du porc...
PARIS -- French authorities have begun closing down soup kitchens run by anti-immigrant groups that serve pork because the practice is offensive to Muslims, who cannot eat pork.
In Strasbourg and Nice, food handouts have been banned because they could lead to "public disorder."
"Schemes with racial subtexts must be denounced," Mayor Fabienne Keller said.
In Paris, police have stopped charities from serving pork soup at major stations on "administrative grounds," claiming the soup kitchens do not have the correct papers.
The scene has been repeated all over France in recent weeks after complaints that right-wing groups have been serving "racist" food. The groups giving out the soup say it is nothing more than traditional French cuisine. They say that hundreds of homeless people will go hungry.
You gotta' love French ingenuity in the face of immigration. Wouldn't be surprised if the "right wing group" is connected to the beloved Front National.
