Kentucky Fried Chicken is a highly successful chain restaurant. They have been around for decades. And they won’t be leaving. But the legal dispute they are caught up in is threatening that. More importantly, it is over some of the most absurd nonsense that will make your stomach turn.

A group of Muslim believers is campaigning for Kentucky Fried Chicken to shut down their businesses if they do not serve halal food. It is a movement that is gaining a lot of support in New Zealand all thanks to a Facebook and social media campaign. They have gained over 2,000 likes in a little over a month and their support continues to grow.

The US Herald reported,

“The movement is being led by Syeda Fouzia, who said the process of delivering halal food ‘is not that difficult.’ ‘We’ve had some criticism, but having halal certification will only mean more people will be able to eat at KFC. It won’t affect non-Muslims,’ UK-born Ms. Fouzia told reporters.

However what seems to be missing in all of this is KFC’s iconic branding within the fast food industry and whether it might actually affect its business model around the world, in that the entire concept of KFC is its branding persona of it’s carefully guarded “top-secret” original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices.

However, Ms. Fouzia has gained a lot of support online asking why the simple transition can’t be made to include “halal KFC?” “Just like to point out KFC is a multi-national fast food corporation, it has about as much cultural bearing on New Zealander’s way of life as Tacobell,” one person said.

But not everyone was having it from the bully Muslims:

Fortunately, KFC has no intention of caving in to the demands of these pushy Muslims. ‘We appreciate their request, however, the issues relating to us being able to certify halal product for customers remain,’ said a KFC a spokesperson. ‘We have no plans to re-introduce halal in New Zealand.’ Well, there you have it. Nice job KFC!”

Halal meat is food that is permissible to eat under Islamic law. Much like kosher meals for Jewish people, halal is a dietary restriction that many Muslim believers abide by. While there is no problem for anyone to eat like this, the problem that is arising is where they are trying to force Kentucky Fried Chicken to abide by their religious dietary restrictions.

Stuff.co reported,

“However, David Wardly – one of the staunch online critics of her campaign – said halal certification was a way for Muslims to “ram their religion” into New Zealand culture. The 82-year-old said he did not know any Kiwi Muslims, but he feared the halal certificate was a way to introduce the Shariah law in to New Zealand. The Englishman said Islamic practices only had a place in Muslim countries.

“We’ll enjoy your culture, your music, your customs and your food in your country. Not here” Many online opponents also criticised the halal method for being cruel. But according to the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ), the country’s commercial halal practices were in line with the Animal Welfare Code.

That meant it was compulsory for all animals to be stunned unconscious before they could be slaughtered. President of FIANZ Hazim Arafeh said the Animal Welfare Code and the halal method worked together “perfectly”.

“In Islam an animal must not suffer or be sacrificed in front of other animals.” He said there was no hidden radical agenda. “Halal certification is not about bringing Sharia law in to New Zealand, it [halal certification] exists because New Zealand wants to export to Muslim countries.”

Restaurant Brands – the company that owned KFC in New Zealand – had earlier said a halal trial was carried out in 2001, but complexities in supply chain led to the idea being dropped. Marketing general manager Geraldine Oldham said the fast food chain’s position had not changed and at this stage they had no plans to re-introduce halal options in New Zealand.

There were 46,000 Muslims living in New Zealand in the 2013 census, a 28 percent increase since 2006. Halal is an Islamic term meaning permissible. In the dietary context it referred to meat from animals and poultry that has been slaughtered using a sharp knife and specially-trained slaughtermen who recite a special prayer.”

If someone wants to eat halal meat that is fine but they can’t force private businesses to offer food. They are a private business and as such, they have a right to serve whatever type of food they want according to the demand they have. Clearly, the demand for halal food is not that high otherwise they would have already served it.

BREAKING: Anti-Trump Group Founder Just Arrested!

The Founder of a Portland Anti-Trump group was just arrested for kidnapping and strangling his ex-girlfriend according to reports on Thursday.

The Daily Caller reported: The #MeToo movement is catching up with sexual predators who brand themselves “male feminist allies” within the progressive movement, and Portland’s Resistance co-founder Gregory McKelvey is the latest activist to have his skeletons unearthed.

The prominent Portland-based activist was outed for previously being arrested and jailed on suspicion of strangling and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend six years ago, a Wednesday article in The Oregonian revealed.

McKelvey is one of the most prominent social justice activists in Portland, first emerging in the city’s politics in 2016 as a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders, and then later as a figurehead in the Portland’s Black Lives Matter movement.

He is the co-founder of Portland’s Resistance, whose leader—a sex offender named Micah Rhodes—was charged with sexually abusing a minor in 2017.

McKelvey achieved fame following Donald Trump’s victory with his establishment of Portland’s Resistance as a model to “resist” the democratically-elected president’s agenda, and led street demonstrations numbering in the thousands in protest of Trump. His advocacy for social justice causes earned him profiles in liberal and left-leaning publications, including Vice and The Guardian.

Mice Flee Sinking Ship: Podesta Group CEO Resigns Immediately After Tony Podesta

New sources officially confirm that just days after Tony Podesta, founder of Podesta Group resigned from his position, CEO Kimberley Fritts has decided to also jump the ship to launch her own firm instead.

According to a report by Politico:

Tony Podesta, the firm’s founder, tapped Fritts as his successor when he announced he’d step down as chairman last week, hours after an indictment was unsealed, charging Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates with violating foreign lobbying law. The indictment accused Manafort of hiring the Podesta group to lobby for an ostensibly independent nonprofit that ‘was under the ultimate direction’ of the Ukrainian president, his party, and the Ukrainian government.

Fritts has been expected to relaunch the Podesta Group under a new name in the days after Podesta stepped down. But after more than a week of working to hammer out the details of what the new firm would look like, Fritts announced at a staff meeting late this afternoon, that she would resign and start a new firm, exacerbating questions about the future of the Podesta Group and its dozens of employees.

Podesta’s name has recently been compared with a scarlet letter or a curse, with people saying some of the best talents will probably leave the country along with him. Tony Podesta stepped down from his spot in the company amid Robert Mueller’s investigation into the activities of Podesta group.

Podesta Group was subpoenaed in late August with four other PR firms who worked with former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in a lobbying effort for a pro-Ukraine think tank – ECMU – which was tied to former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.
The subpoenaed firms are Manafort’s Mercuty, LLC, and the Podesta Group which was founded by John and Tony Podesta, but it was only managed and operated by Tony Podesta himself.

Gays Against Guns Group Arrested After Occupying the Senate Building

Right after the shooting in Texas where a man opened fire at church in Sutherland Springs leaving 26 people dead, gay activists went to the Philip A. Hart Senate Office Building in Washington on Monday to demand gun control restrictions.

The group Gays Against Guns, protested by laying on the ground in front of the Senate building shouting “You’re killing us with money from the NRA!”

The group of people was laying there for approximately 10 minutes till the Capitol Police came and ordered them to stop the protest.

When they refused to get up the police officers were forced to arrest them.

The Gays Against Guns had “been planning this protest since early October in response to the Pulse Orlando shooting and Las Vegas shootings.”

Posted by Reuters on Monday, November 6, 2017

June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen, an Islamic terrorist, opened fire at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 48 people, and last month Stephen Paddock carried out the mass shooting in Las Vegas killing 58 people.

After the Orlando shooting, the Democrats wouldn’t pass a stricter gun control law, but, Sen. Chris Murphy did say that the legislation wouldn’t be able to prevent Mateen from killing all those people.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, said that no law would’ve stopped Paddock from killing the people in Las Vegas.

When CBS host John Dickerson asked if there could “have been any law passed that would’ve stopped” Paddock, “No,” she said.

“He passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” she added.

The Sutherland Springs gunman had several domestic violence convictions from the Air Force, and he was given a bad conduct” discharge, which enables him from purchasing a gun legally. But Air Force didn’t notify FBI of his convictions so he ended up having a rifle.

Moreover, one Christian who was carrying a gun took mater into his own hands and stopped the mass shooting on Sunday.

“He came with his (gun), and he took cover behind a car and he shot the guy — I’m not sure if it was inside the church as he was coming out — but if it wasn’t for him the guy wouldn’t have stopped,” a witness stated.

Sadly, facts like these happen to be of no value to the Gays Against Guns activists.

“GAG believes that the time has come to not only start talking about gun reforms but to start enacting them,” one activist said to The Advocate. “The phony ritual of ‘thoughts and prayers’ no longer has any credibility when there are 91 people shot to death daily and 291 mass shootings so far this year.”
