Target: South Fork Industries
Goal: Stop the sale of pork-laced bullets specifically targeting Muslims
South Fork Industries has recently begun selling a brand of anti-Islamist bullets laced with pork, which they think will act as a deterrent to radical Islamists. The bullets are ironically advertised as “Peace Through Pork” and “a peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam.” South Fork Industries says that their product is only to be used defensively rather than offensively—even though their product is bullets.
Along with the bullets themselves, South Fork Industries also sells shooting targets featuring the slogans “Put Some Ham in MoHAMed” and “Do 72 Virgins a Favor.” These hateful, bigoted targets need to be taken off of the market and their producers punished. Spreading these kind of arrogant, misinformed sentiments is incredibly harmful and needs to be put to a stop immediately.
Products such as these are disgustingly prejudiced and work to instill fear and hate against a large group of people. Even though the company claims to differentiate between radical Islamists (whom they refer to as “Jihadists”) and other Muslims, it becomes clear that the line between the two for South Fork Industries is very indistinct and not understood. Many peaceful Muslims living in the US would have to suffer from the negative effects of this product.
Many experts on the Quran would say that South Fork greatly mistakes its regulations on pork. Shannon Dunn, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Gonzaga University says that, “There is no penalty for coming into contact with pork given by the Quran. To my knowledge, Muslims, especially unknowingly, would not be banned from heaven for eating or getting hit by pork.” Even if this weren’t the case, the product would still be horrible, but this just goes to show how ill-informed its creators are.
Tell South Fork Industries to stop producing its Islamophobic Jihawg Ammo and that you will not stand for its spreading of hatred toward people who are Muslim.
Dear South Fork Industries,
Your product Jihawg Ammo is hateful and works to target Muslim people. Claiming that a gun can be used in anything other than a belligerent, aggressive manner with horrible consequences is being wilfully ignorant. A gun is inherently an offensive weapon that cannot in any instance be used defensively. Guns are only used to kill people—nothing else. By insisting that your products are to be used defensively, you are being curiously hypocritical.
Although you claim to say that your product is intended to be used on “radical Islamists,” it is clear through your other merchandise (such as your targets, which read “Put Some Ham in MoHAMed”) that your products are undifferentiating in their Islamophobic message.
In addition to the incredible amount of bigotry and hatred that your product entails, many experts on the Quran say that your assertion that pork-laced bullets would send radical Islamists to hell according to their beliefs is entirely incorrect. This, like all of your other beliefs with this product, are founded on ill-informed fear-mongering and prejudice without real knowledge.
I urge you to stop producing and selling such disgusting, hateful merchandise.
[Your Name Here]
