Progressive Prigs Versus the Iron Pigs
Bacon tastes so good, you had to know it was only a matter of time before it was targeted it for restrictions:
PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) has erected a billboard a mile from the Allentown Iron Pigs’ ballpark, comparing bacon to cigarettes and declaring: “Keep Kids Safe: Ban Bacon from Ballparks.”
The Iron Pigs are the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. Their team store offers all sorts of bacon-themed merchandise, even including scratch-and-sniff t-shirts.
With moonbats, it is never long before the government becomes involved.
The group has also sent letters to the Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and the Pigs’ owners, Joseph Finley and Craig Stein. One letter calls for the mayor’s help “asking the Iron Pigs to stop glorifying bacon.”
It also evokes the cigarette analogy:
“The team would never pass out free cartons of cigarettes to the children of the LeHigh Valley, yet they are providing open access to bacon crumbles and turning a family-friendly event into a public health crisis.”
Once again we see that the jihad against cigarettes provides a template that will be applied by progressive prigs to restrict and eventually eradicate anything that makes life more enjoyable.
