In the Islamic religion, pork and pork products are forbidden because the pig is considered an impure animal. Ted Nugent wrote in a Facebook post: “…The ironical part is that when a suicide bomber blows himself up his body parts are impregnated with gelatin and glycerin from the explosive. Both gelatin and glycerin are manufactured from pigs worldwide. Ergo, they will never be accepted by Allah.” Saturday night, a van mowed down pedestrians as it sped down London Bridge in the British capital, leaving bodies lying in the roadway, a witness to the incident told CNN. Also Saturday, a man with a “massive knife” entered a restaurant at Borough Market, just south of the bridge, and stabbed two people inside, a witness said.
During an urgent press conference at the White House to address the terrorist attacks in London, a spokesperson said that President Donald Trump “has warned” something like this might happen, “but that nobody listened to him as usual.” In the statement, it was also said that President Trump was “considering” Ted Nugent’s suggestion on how to retaliate for the London attacks. “The president is on the hotline with Mr. Nugent 24/7,” the statement read. “As a matter of fact, the two have been closely working together since Donald Trump won the election. Mr. Nugent is an iconic musician and a legendary patriot, and as such, the president values his opinion on matters of national security. What’s more, the two often speak about the current political situation in the country, as well as a number of issues that are plaguing the country.”
The statement also said, “Immediately upon receiving news that London was the target of several, seemingly unrelated terrorist attacks, President Donald Trump convened an emergency staff meeting, in which Mr. Nugent was also invited to participate via Skype. Having received the official briefing, Mr. Nugent suggested to everyone present that ‘the Brits have been our allies for years’ and that ‘we need to do something about this so that they know we’ve got their backs.’ The president agreed, and asked Mr. Nugent if he had any suggestions. He replied, ‘Well, I can think of one thing right off the top of my head. In order to stop something like this from happening at home, we ought to force every American to take a pig capsule and we need to do it right now. That’s the only sure way to act swiftly.’”
“He added, ‘One, this will show that we’re responding to the attacks with a decisive action, and two – and also more importantly – by doing this, we’ll flush out any fundamentalist Muslims that might be plotting to do something similar on American soil. It’s simple – if they take the pill, they’re fine, and if they refuse, we know they’re Muslim and they’re planning something. Ultimately, we could also make them try a piece of pork or something, but that would be a waste of good pork. The worst part is – I don’t mind wasting food, but I do mind wasting perfectly good pork on Muslims who don’t appreciate it. A capsule containing pigs’ blood or something should do the trick instead. Besides – the economy is down as it is and we need to be rational with our resources, too,’ Mr. Nugent said.”
According to the statement, President Trump “is currently considering” Nugent’s proposition.
