Ever seen a liberal's head explode? It's not hard to do these days. Even the most simple, respectful acts such as saying "yes ma'am" or "no sir" can cause them to spontaneously combust.
So it comes to no surprise that the left is having a meltdown over an Australian butcher's window sign that declares his meat is "not halal-certified." They claim it is "inciting hatred" towards Muslims.
The Valley Butchers in Adelaide, South Australia, found itself in hot water over a complaint to the Australian Advertising Standards Authority after the owner put up a sign that originally read “not halal-certified” on the shop front.
For those of you who don't know, "halal" refers to the slaughtering of animals in accordance of Islamic law. It is brutal, and is done so by cutting the jugular vein, carotid artery, and windpipe in order to drain the animal of all blood.
Halal Meat is prohibited in Hinduism & Sikhism. Halal Meat is obtained by Killing animals in the most Barbaric way.

Valley Butchers said about the controversy, “The sign is only stating that we are not halal approved."
"In no way is it meant in a malice way." They added, “We where getting asked quite frequently whether we are halal approved, so I am just stating that we are not, and that saves a lot of wasted time.”
If it's OK to place 'Halal' in a butcher's window, it must, quite simply, be OK to place a sign stating 'Not Halal'.

However, those complaining did not care, nor agree. They claimed that the sign “perpetuate[s] a culture of vilification towards religious minorities, that results in harm towards them…. It pokes fun of a specific group of people based on religious belief.”
“Using the phrase ‘non-Halal certified’ in conjunction with imagery of Australian animals was a suggestion that Islamic dietary practices are not Australian,” they said.
The shop has now been threatened with legal action to enforce the change.
The shop also faces prosecution for using the iconic imagery of an Australian emu and kangaroo.
The butcher responded that they changed the sign to from "non halal-certified" to "not halal-certified" and that they would not be making any more changes.
