Bobby Sands: “You People are Pussies”

Muslim prisoners sue for millions after they were offered ham sandwiches for Ramadan | the Daily Mail

Muslim inmates who were allegedly offered ham sandwiches during the holy season of Ramadan are suing for compensation….

After complaining to wardens, the prisoners were told the menus were a mistake. Many ordered cheese sandwiches instead, but some claimed they were still delivered ham sandwiches and ended up eating them because they were so hungry.

It was reported that lawyers estimated each inmate could receive as much £10,000 compensation if the claim is proved. Tax payers will end up footing the bill.

See, there’s an upside to living under the laws of the infidels: a potential paycheck! Why bother actually following Sha’ria, and refusing to eat the boiled ham sandwiches you allege were foisted upon you, when you can claim you were ‘forced’ to eat them (during a time when fasting is the operative show of Islamic faith), and say this–or just the existence of “ham” as a potential menue selection–equates to oppression, and only a payday will wipe away the stain.

Amateurs. Bloody wanker amatuers. Sands and the H-Block protesters died for their beliefs. You lot tossed yours aside because a couple of slices of boiled pig between slices of bread was, mistakenly, listed on a menu, and supposedly a couple of you shmucks succumbed to the siren song of pork.

Air America Idiot Update

Morning show overhaul coming Monday at WWRL

Mark Riley and Richard Bey will take over the morning show Monday at WWRL (1600 AM), replacing Sam Greenfield and Armstrong Williams.

Program director Rennie Bishop calls the move a “creative redirection.” WWRL is the flagship for the Air America network but has its own in-house morning show.

Both Riley and Bey are city radio veterans. Riley worked for many years at WLIB (1190 AM) before joining Air America, where he worked from its inception in March 2004 until earlier this year.

Bey co-hosted “The Buzz” with Steve Malzberg on WABC (770 AM) for several years and in August started an 8-10 p.m. show on WWRL.

I have to imagine carrying AAR’s syndicated morning talk show would have been cheaper than paying these two guys; just how lousy are the ratings for AAR’s “Young Turks” that the netlet’s ‘flagship’ NYC station’s PD still won’t carry the program, instead opting to create a new broadcast team without even giving Cenk Uygur’s crew a couple of laps around the track in the all-important morning drive daypart?
