Must not mention that Muslims avoid pigs

A Hungarian politician has sparked outrage for suggesting placing pigs' heads on fences at the border will deter refugees from entering the country.

Gyorgy Schopflin, 76 - part of the country's right wing party - made the comment when responding to criticism about their attitude towards refugees.

The MEP posted on Twitter that by placing the head of a pig on fences at the border it would 'deter' people try to enter 'more effectively'.

Schopflin, of the Fidesz Party, was replying to Human Rights Watch director Andrew Stroehlein.

The argument on Twitter came after Hungarian officials placed masks made from vegetables on their border fences in a bid to prevent refugees trying to enter the country.

Mr Stroehlein tweeted: 'Refugees are fleeing war & torture, Hungary. 'Your root vegetable heads will not deter them.' Mr Schopflin quickly replied: 'Might do so. Human images are haram.  'But agree, pig's head would deter more effectively.'

But the politician's response has sparked outrage and Mr Stroehlein has described him as an 'embarrassment to humanity'.

He also said that Schopflin's suggestion was 'disgusting' and accused him of spouting 'xenophobic filth'. 

Speaking directly to the MEP, Mr Stroehlein said: 'Your words are disgusting.

'I would expect that from anonymous neo-Nazi trolls but you're an MEP. Act like one.'  He continued: 'You are an embarrassment to Hungary, to Europe & to humanity.'

Of 177,135 asylum applicants to Hungary in 2015, just 146 were approved, according to government statistics.

In March 2015, the Hungarian government declared a state of emergency in the country due to Europe's refugee crisis.

It deployed an additional 1,500 security personnel to the country's Serbian frontier in a bid to deny refugees entry.

Wouldn't this be a humane, non-lethal way of addressing the problem? Would it work? Who knows, but not giving offense to the invaders is clearly more important than defending one's culture. Same can be said for letting it be known that bullets, bombs, fences and anything else required are coated in pork. It would seem that the world over, politicians are idiots of the highest order.

Secretly feed Muslims pork for as long as possible, then let them discover it. They'll be too busy praying to fight or outbreed us.

The simple thing is to not let them in the country unless they renounce their religion. They do no less for all other religions and atheists when it comes to their society and immigration.

I can't understand how the current head of the UN commission of Human Rights can be a Muslim. Islam is the anti-thesis of human rights and for him lecture western countries about human rights is an absolute mockery of UN, which in its own right is a joke.

I wonder what makes him think this is true of every single person attempting to cross the border?
