OUTRAGE: Man Fired for Offering Employee Bacon Sandwich (Didn’t Know She Was Muslim)

By Debbie Schlussel

This absurd, outrageous incident happened to an employee–now ex-employee–of Britain’s NHS, the UK version of Obamacare. But it could easily happen here (and already has), as America’s Muslim population continues to explode through immigration (legal AND illegal) and birthrate. Uber-political correctness to Islam (dhimmitude) is the order of the day now and has been for years. Note that the man did not even know this woman was Muslim.

Clive Hunt: Yet Another Victim of Islamic “Tolerance” and “Peace”

Clive Hunt, a 58-year old IT consultant in Manchester, England, confronted this question head on earlier this month, when he offered to pick up “bacon sandwiches” during a meeting with a new client. That reportedly offended a Muslim co-worker – and soon after, Hunt says he was told he lost the job. According to a report in the Manchester Evening News, Hunt says a manager told him the decision was made because of his “racist remark.”



Hunt says he was in a meeting at a Manchester office of the Reed recruitment company to discuss an eight-month contract worth £32,000 (or $50,000) to work with the British National Health Service (NHS). And during the meeting, Hunt offered to pick up “bacon sandwiches,” which . . . is “standard English breakfast fare.” He didn’t know that a colleague in the meeting, Sharika Sacranie, 29, was an observant Muslim, forbidden from eating pig products.

Hunt says he didn’t intend to offend anyone. “I’d never met [Sacranie] before,” he told the Daily Mail, adding “we got on fine.” But after the meeting, Hunt says he received the call telling him his services were no longer needed due to his “racist” remark — an allegation Hunt disputes. “There was no slur at her because I’d already met all the contractors on site before and one of them had actually told me they had really good bacon sandwiches.”

More:

Mr Hunt said: “After we shook hands she said that she would come over to meet me on site with the other contractors and take us for breakfast. My parting words to her were ‘I will buy the bacon sandwiches’. “Later, as I was driving home, Ms Sacranie’s manager called me and wanted to know about the racist remark I had made. I said I had not made one and he said I had said that I would get her a bacon sandwich. But I only made the remark because she referred to breakfast.

“The woman was of Asian appearance. I am not a racist, never have been. I wasn’t brought up that way. “Bacon sandwiches are often eaten at breakfast. I didn’t think for a minute this would have caused offence otherwise I wouldn’t have said it. I have lost a contract because of an unassuming remark about a bacon sarnie. I have been an IT contractor for 30 years and never been subjected to this.

“I’m really gutted that I’ve missed out on this job. I was over the moon when I got it . I love working for the NHS, I know their systems.” A spokesman for Reed said: “Due to inappropriate comments made to members of our staff during the recruitment process before Mr Hunt started his new role we have unfortunately decided that we do not feel we can represent this client further.

Hunt has been out of work for some time now and can’t find a job. Well, he can always say the shehadah (Islamic oath to martyrdom–saying it is the only thing you need to do to convert to Islam), and then the world will be his halal oyster. Jihad your way to a job.

Reader Larry: “Would you like lettuce and tomato with that?”

Reader Jon Grant of Grant Patent Services: “Coming to a country near you.”

Again, it’s already here, and I’ll post a similar “American” story here soon. Stay tuned.

Soon, Every restaurant in America will be forbidden to offer Pork products on their menu. They don’t want to be sued for offending somebody.

    You mean like Church’s Fried Chicken has already banned? They were sued by one of the franchise owners because they were not allowed to sell bacon breakfast sandwiches by the muslim corporate owners.

    Ender on June 27, 2013 at 10:22 pm

The UK that gave us the Magna Carta is dead. Its sliding into Sharia and full-blown dhimmitude.

Hey, no more pork chops! Cuz it would make some Muslim very angry! Among the freedoms we’re losing in the West is the freedom to eat what we want.

We’re only a decade behind the UK.

NormanF on June 27, 2013 at 3:42 pm

Not to minimize the Muslim intolerance, but there seems also to be an affirmative action aspect to this. The older white guy lost the contract, and the younger, nonwhite (Muslim) woman prevailed. Governments and those directly under their influence (e.g. government contractors such as we have here) are always the worst practitioners of affirmative action.

Little Al on June 27, 2013 at 4:02 pm

LA,

It was affirmative action in favor of a Muslima. Good point – anti-white racism is alive and well in the UK!

NormanF on June 27, 2013 at 4:10 pm

Shame on reed recruitment for putting up with this bs

William taylor on June 27, 2013 at 4:15 pm

Has the Muslim woman come forward in defense of the innocent unintentional offender? What a cost-free opportunity for her to represent Islam in a positive light.

Not in a pig’s eye!

*In a pig’s eye (drop the not)

lee of the lower case "l" on June 27, 2013 at 4:26 pm

what you are conveniently leaving out is the fact that this man isa ctually a racist, and used to talk about this employee daily. as if he were obsessed.

I would know. I worked with him.

john on June 27, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Yeah, I’ll bet, Mohammed, I mean “john.”

    skzion on June 27, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    What’s convenient is that he hadn’t been working there for days. The recruitment process hadn’t even completed.
    Get your story straight if taqiyya dunce.

    So what? Islam isn’t a race. Muslims are not a race. What’s your point? Are you saying he’s a “racist” because she is brown? (I don’t know what color she is) That wasn’t the issue. The issue was because she is Muslim. You can’t have it both ways.

Devil’s advocate, here:

First, is the guy wearing a Star Trek TNG shirt?

Second, we may never know if it actually was an oversight on the guy’s part or if he was trying to be pert and mischievous and the joke backfired. After all, the guy is firmly in the demographic of a Briton who’s seen with hi sown eyes the encroachment of islam and the tide of favoritism toward muslims and muslimas like this one “co-worker”, a young, female muslima ostensibly muscling in on the traditional white male domain of IT and via affirmative action, no less. That would certainly irritate me, to say the least.

So, if it’s an “honest” mistake and he conveniently forgot that the muslims who are constantly in his face with their absurd and obnoxious demands are forbdden from eating pork, then it should be treated as such – a mistake, and not something to be fired over.

However, let’s say this occurred in the US, in the South and the young, female “co-worker” was a black, militant-looking female who also may have encroached on the white, male-dominated domain of IT and the guy said, “innocently” , hey it’s almost lunch time. How’s about I go buy the fried chicken, watermelon and grape Kool-Aid?”

Should the person, even if he claimed it was an innocent oversight and he was merely suggesting it because the cafeteria was known to have good fired chicken, watermelon and kool-Aid, would you believe him?

If not, should such a person be fired?

DS_ROCKS! on June 27, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    Yeah first it’s not a Star Trek shirt. It looks more like a Rugby vest or a Beano magazine style top.
    The southern fried chicken thing is not really applicable because bacon sandwiches are totally standard in England and she probably couldn’t escape the smell of bacon during lunch time if she tried.
    Lots of people from Muslim backgrounds sometimes eat bacon anyway.

    You can’t live in England without walking past a fry up.
    Also he’s new on the job and the whole male dominated machismo IT thing falls flat for me.

    migraine boy on June 27, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Basically the only the thing she can claim to be offended by is that he made a typically English menu choice. Now did he do it pointedly because he knew she’d have a quack attack at the mere suggestion?
    That has to be her angle on it.

    migraine boy on June 27, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    What difference does it make? On purpose or not, he didn’t do anything wrong.

    Pray Hard on June 28, 2013 at 9:41 am

You know what, these muslims are just plain old irrational pieces of work, so a muslimah skank got a man fired because he served her pork and he wasn’t aware that she happened to be a muslimah? Unreal, I also blame his company for kow-towing and bending their asses backwards to this lady on getting him terminated from his old job, and thanks to her ass, the poor dude can’t find employment to help himself financially, etc. It’s time that companies QUIT bending backwards to these theistic 7th century throwback Mohammadeans, and run there business or company the way they feel like!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on June 27, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    All he did was offer to go get bacon sandwiches for a group of people. He did not single her out. This is nothing but jihadi lawfare and like a bunch of silly dhimmis, we’re all sitting around here wondering if he did it on purpose, etc., etc. It doesn’t make any difference!

    Pray Hard on June 28, 2013 at 9:43 am

Tommy Thomas on June 27, 2013 at 6:36 pm

Interesting thing at least for me about shehadah thing Debbie mentioned.
I think you need to say it in the presence of a male witness.
Another is apparently kids are taught to say it at school making them technically Muslims(if Islamic idiocy qualifies as a technicality) without knowing it.

migraine boy on June 27, 2013 at 6:48 pm

Back in 2004 or so, the brits removed piggy banks from the desks of those in the banks because it was ‘offensive’ to muslims. Why would a piggy bank, a symbol of rugality, of saving, of thrift, of family wholesome activity, be condemned because of the image of a pig? The jewish laws of kashruth, are more complex, hall being a 2nd rate model of jewish kashruth. But kashruth never applied the laws to non jews. And if a very religious jew came across a piggy bank it wouldn’t raise an eyebrow.
In fact, since your not eating the thing, it has no negative connotation, but if they had pork sandwiches on the desk, that wouldn’t raise an eyebrown either, except for the fact that dining at one’s desk might be frowned upon.
The point: why don’t the people of the west point this out- that jews have never thrown their kashruth in the face of non jews. But that doesn’t seem to make a dent
nor even call for condemnation of those lousy halal laws that tyrannize all others.

mgoldberg on June 27, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    mgoldberg, juxtaposing Jewish practice to Muslim demands is an interesting way to approach this publicly. However, I’m not sure how effective this would be in UK…

    skzion on June 27, 2013 at 9:15 pm

      And yet that is the direct comparison between apparently ‘similar’ practices that have different motivations, and the effect upon society, freedom, liberty and civilized society. The UK is the beginnings- think of the magna carta, but the whole western world achieved these freedoms and liberties to far greater extent than anywhere in the arab or islamic world. So…. the comparison, shames Islam, literally. The notion that speaking facts and truths is ‘blasphemy’ is utter nonsense in terms of western freedoms of speech, and intellectual inquiry. Christianity, Judaism, all religions are subjected to inquiry as to their structure, and while many times it is irritating, even insulting to practitioners, and believers, this is the price of freedom.
      The comaparison should have been made over the years between benign religions vs non benign one’s such as Islam are exactly the excoriation and public denouement that might lead to change of public attitudes and open the doors to critical thinking.

      mgoldberg on June 28, 2013 at 12:02 am

        Oh, I agree with your logic, mgoldberg. It’s just that there is so much anti-Semitism in UK that I’m not sure native Britons would permit Jews to be the good guys.

        skzion on June 28, 2013 at 2:35 pm

While not related to this issue, there is news (ahem) that two certain “jihad fighters” in their respective minds (one of whom is a car-loan fraudster, the other just “watches jihad” and does nothing about it) have recently been banned by the British government, and for the same reason as the firing of the man who offered the bacon sandwich – to appease Islam. In this other case, though, given what Debbie had written about those particular two in past articles, two things immediately sprung to my mind: “Alien vs. Predator,” and in particular four words: “So Sad, Too Bad.”

Oh, and that same unnamed car-loan fraudster used the same “country that gave us the Magna Carta is dead” twaddle over her situation. Cry us a river.

ConcernedPatriot on June 27, 2013 at 8:53 pm

“He didn’t know that a colleague in the meeting, Sharika Sacranie, 29, was an observant Muslim, forbidden from eating pig products.”

In my early college years there was a professor of geology whose family I got to know. He and his wife were Jewish refugees from Germany. He told stories of working in the oil fields of Oklahoma where colleagues would often distribute ham sandwiches for lunch. (Most didn’t know he was Jewish.) He begged off on the sandwiches, making do with the fruit. No one got fired for the “offense” and he came to be known as “Peaches”.

mgoldberg is right that “if a very religious jew came across a piggy bank it wouldn’t raise an eyebrow.” Indeed. When I was in third grade, aside from science books I enjoyed the “Freddy the Pig” detective series. And when I graduated Hebrew school, the rabbi made a joke about my interest in “ham radio”. Everyone had a chuckle. (And yes, I did become a “ham” operator – WB4FXS.)

Raymond in DC on June 27, 2013 at 9:22 pm

Wow..

Where has common sense gone.. Many Hindus do not eat beef but how is it offensive if someone offers me a hamburger?

This is just crazy. Islamization has been allowed to creep into that country. I hope and pray that we are smarter than that.

sanjay on June 27, 2013 at 10:14 pm

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven…..
Now What “law” I wonder he’s talking about ?
Deuteronomy 14:8
“”The pig, because it divides the hoof but does not chew the cud, it is unclean for you. You shall not eat any of their flesh nor touch their carcasses.”

Matthew on June 27, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Dear Matthew: The difference is that an observant Jew, offered pork, a Mormon, offered coffee, an Eastern Orthodox Christian during lent, offered meat or dairy products, would recognize an honest mistake and say “No, thank you.”

    Miranda Rose Smith on June 28, 2013 at 4:53 am

      or if it weren’t an honest mistake but a vulgar knock on their religious practices, none of those people would think about getting the lout(s) fired or murdererd. Maybe in the west that is de rigeur of the progressive left, but there is no fatwa from any of those religions, no attempt to demolish the freedoms of the vulgar simply for being vulgar.
      And THAT is what we should have been shouting to the skies all these years, and evern now- start shouting this as that which exemplifies all these faiths and most others, except – Islam.
      All of them, took and used what was the Jewish notion- do unto others as you would have them do unto you, which is entirely ABSENT from Islam.
      All these ‘other’ religions took this jewish value in their developement and don’t slit each others throats now, over such
      crudities. Only one ‘faith’ does. And it has civil rights for muslims and different rights for ‘all others’.
      And THAT is what we’re suppposed to be demonstrating, not how nice we can be to the nazi’s.

      mgoldberg on June 28, 2013 at 7:29 am

I was on the receiving end of this happening in the US. Several years ago after leaving the military I was working for a very well known intelligence agency in downtown Washington DC. My muslim coworkers (Lebanese, Iranian, and Sudanese) could not stand working with a Jew and a US Army veteran at that. They constantly spewed insults such as “F-ing Jews,” “Israel is the common enemy,” “We don’t consider you a part of the human race…” just to name a few. When I brought tried to bring this to management’s attention I was completely blown off because according to my ops chief he “hadn’t heard this from anyone else.” The Lebanese guy had an anti-Semitic cartoon in plain view on his desk, I had to complain three times before it was removed.
After a few months the arabs realized that I wouldn’t be intimidated into quitting on my own so they went to management and falsely claimed that I had been making derogatory statements towards THEM and demanded that to have me walked out right away. Although I had clear-cut evidence to the contrary the agency terminated my employment and I was escorted off premises immediately.
Since it was my first job out of the military, I didn’t know much about lawsuits. By the time I found out that I could have sued the time limit for a workplace discrimination lawsuit had elapsed. The most disturbing part of this whole experience is that my former coworkers still hold Top Secret clearances which gives them access to information that could cause grave damage to the US if it falls into the wrong hands.

In 1996, Chris Rock said this about pork:

“Religious books were written by man. … Before there was refrigerators, before there was freezers, before there was seasoning, a pork chop might kill you! … But times have changed. … Five thousand years ago, they’re like ‘Damn, this pork is killing everybody. How can we get people to not eat pork?’ OK, tell them God said don’t eat it. Everybody said, ‘OK, God said don’t eat it.’ and they stopped eating it. Times have changed, though. And now we got ‘frigerators, we got freezers. We got Saran wrap. We got Reynolds wrap. Now a pork chop’s your friend. That’s right, if you’re starving a pork chop will save your life!”

ebayer on June 28, 2013 at 3:12 am

    So why didn’t they ban beef? That can also spoil. If pork can carry trichonosiasis, beef can carry tapeworm.

    Miranda Rose Smith on June 28, 2013 at 6:04 am

Ms. Sacranie’s manager is an idiot. He actually let her get away with pretending that she believed that “Would you like a bacon sandwich?” was a racist remark? He didn’t laugh in her face? He was that afraid of offending a Moslem? Does he think for a minute that, in a world where “Would you like a bacon sandwich?” is a “racist remark,” HE can go very long without making a racist remark? Mr. Hunt’s employers are a bunch of self-destructive cowards for not rallying behind him. How long do they think they’ll be able to keep their jobs? A Moslem will make a ludicrous complaint about them and they’ll get fired. For the second time, this morning, on this website, I say “Every dog has its day!!!!”

Miranda Rose Smith on June 28, 2013 at 4:18 am

There is something not right about this story. If you read the whole thing, you’ll realize Hunt isn’t being completely honest.

    Why don’t you point out the dishonesty, Cockroach?

    You’re living proof that while you love to read this site NONE of the well-written, well-researched, truthful and not-reported-anywhere-else info NEVER permeates your insect brain.

    What, do the yucky, long antennae on top of your brainless head instantly wipe out the info once taken in? Aw, Too bad, so sad!

    Your record of un-informed contrarianism is still standing. When you get smacked in your cockroach face with industrial-strength Raid you run back under the fridge again. Never defending your incorrect point and never facing the truth that leaves you under the fridge on your back with your little cockroach legs kicking like an angry mental case.

    You even played the contrarian on the infamous Cherie Currie thread! Go to the circus so big, floppy, clown feet can smash you dead for all eternity. You’re pathetic to behold.

    Skunky on June 28, 2013 at 11:38 am

      What I said was I don’t think he’s telling the whole story. What makes me think this? Well I’m glad you asked…

      One he doesn’t understand how,”How can it rescind an offer that was made to me by the NHS?” Because Reed was the one broking the deal.

      He supposedly made “inappropriate comments” during a phone call, which he never mentions.

      It makes me think that well he may have a case, there are clearly more facts than are being told.

        You’re a lesbionic cockroach. You’re not foolin’ ANYONE. I’ve had you sussed since the get-go.

        Go be wimpy to your long-suffering family who is beyond sick of what a boring crapper you are.

        You’re the first Lezzer Cockroach that has to wear a safety helmet because your brain just doesn’t work properly. What the good Lord didn’t give you in smarts he doubled-down on with pesky annoyance.

        I’m gonna write to “Black Flag” so they give me some free roach spray to put you and your family out of yours & their misery. Kafka would smile if if was still living today because you’re an annoying and totally unsympathetic modern day Gregor Samsa. I hope your cat eats you, has diarrhea and then a dog eats the pile of cat trots left by your unfortunate moggy!

          Now back to my point, really people read this article. There is more to the story. He may have a valid point about getting fired for PC reasons, but this story doesn’t prove it.

          And be honest if all these places where switch, you’d be saying there’s not enough information here.

          PS my cat says, “meeroow.”

          Are you on your period, Cockroach? So many spelling errors in your dopey post it’s barely legible. And I see you also nick adjectives from me (‘crappy’ because I used ‘crapper’). You’re such a pathetic no-hoper.

          It must be hard to wear a helmet and Tampax at the same time, Roachy. Especially when you must *try* to think and still try to make it back under the fridge before the Raid hits ya.

          Give it up. Everyone knows your game and laughs at you! (“God told us to laugh @ you! God told us to laugh @ you”!)

There is no pic of Sharika, so I thought I would try to post one. You will see that this ‘obsevant’ Muslim has no head piece and wears low cut tops. No wonder the confusion. The victim here was Hunt, who was set up for “Sudden Muslim Grievance”.

I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry. Listen to this; I had a Jewish boss who was quite friendly and I liked him. But he had the habit of eating any sandwitsh he finds in the company’s fridge. Because we were dear friends I did not want to discuss the subject with him. One day I thought I found the perfect solution; I made a Mortadella sandwich. He ate it. I told him Larry that was Mortadella. He told me that is OK it is Kosher. All slaughter now is medically examined. I couldn’t help but laugh. The West is getting to be a masachist.

Sickening. And it’s only going to get worse as the spineless lemmings continue to kowtow to these filthy 3rd world savages. If they are so offended, they should go back where they belong. Ride their camels, beat their wives, and whatever else it is they do with themselves. Somebody should throw some pork slaughterhouse renderings all over her property.
