Texas Governor Rick Perry will make a great President, especially compared to our current seditionist-at-large. However, he has one MAJOR problem I am aware of. He made buddies with a number of influential Muslims and has promoted legislation that enables the implementation of Sharia law and Hallal (Islamic-sanctioned) foods. See additional info HERE.
Hallal is just like Kosher, right? Hardly. Kosher is subject to rigorous cleanliness standards. Hallal is subject to Islamic blessings and other filth.
Perry apparently believed if we have special food categories for Jews we must do the same for the Muslims. Hogwash!
Here are some insights into the nature of Islamic Hallal foods that the esteemed Texas governor facilitated in his ignorance of Islamic ideology and practice, courtesy of Ann Barhardt:
NEVER buy meat that is marked as "Halal". "Halal" is the term for muslim-compliant food and meat.
Some people think that "Halal" must be basically the same as "Kosher". No. Halal meat is slaughtered while the butcher is facing Mecca and screaming "allah akbar". But that isn't the worst of it. I am in the cattle business, and believe me when I tell you that Halal kill plants are CONSTANTLY being cited and shut down by the USDA for horrific, horrific infractions. Most of these plants are in Michigan and upstate New York.
One of the things that halal kill plants are notorious for is putting already-dead animals in the human consumption line. They will go pick up a dead cow off of a farm or ranch and instead of putting it in their rendering tank where the resulting "tankage" is worth pennies on the dollar as pet food or industrial products, they will shackle the dead animal on the normal kill line and process it as human food which is the highest-dollar product.
Since islam teaches dishonesty (taqiyyah) and no regard for one's neighbor, this kind of sickening behavior is standard. Halal plants are also notorious for general citations for filth and uncleanliness. I have toured normal cattle slaughter plants, and guys, you could eat off of the floor. Everything is white and men walk around with water hoses and steam guns constantly keeping everything in a state of spotlessness. Halal plants are filthy and unclean. A lot of Halal meat is also labeled as "organic". Again, don't be fooled into thinking that "halal" means "better". It isn't. I would never, ever knowingly eat halal meat purely from a food safety perspective.
