German nationalists pull anti-Islam pig poster

A leader of Germany’s anti-immigrant AfD party says it won’t distribute campaign posters with the slogan “Islam? Doesn’t fit with our cuisine” written above a piglet in a grass field — because it inspires too much sympathy for the pig.

Alexander Gauland, one of the nationalist Alternative for Germany’s main candidates in the Sept. 24 election, says the poster is “unusable.”

The Bild newspaper quoted Gauland saying Sunday, “I’m concerned children will say: ‘What? They want to slaughter this pig?'”

He added: “The poster campaigns for the piglet, not against Islam, so away with it.”

AfD is sticking with other anti-Islam posters, including one with two white women in bathing suits and the slogan “Burkas? We like bikinis.”

    They should not pull the poster but change it. In fact I find it isn’t the best to convey the intended message. Show a dish with pork and keep the message. You don’t need a photo of a live pig, in fact I find it was a poor choice.

    • Yup, Sausage works for me.

      Sausages…and beer.

      You guys are crazy! You gotta use BACON!!! Piles and piles of bacon. And the beer idea is great too.
      Just sayin’

      If it wasn’t for pork Germans would be vegetarians.

    Seems like a good choice. It was stupid to show a cute baby pig – why not show a plate of crispy bacon or a ham sandwich. Of course it is better to go with bikini clad beauties

    • Bikinis are best.

        time to roll this up in a simple suggestion a bac-ini a scanty thong type thing made with bacon modeled on a cute beach babe, who couldn’t like that?

        Bikini posters might cause refugees to jack off in the street.

      My thought also. Bring on the stacks of yummy bacon and forego the cute piglet.

    What a cute little bacon-seedling!

    if they must show a pig , then make it a full grown mud encrusted wild boar as it is closest to a male muslim radical.

    German beaches are mostly nude beaches. Maybe wearing a shower curtain isn’t the worst idea.

      Yeah, not many look like the ones in the picture,
