Skip to comments.[From 2010 Blogosphere] The Pork Eating Crusader Patch Is A Huge Hit With Troops In Afghanistan
Posted on 03/17/2012 7:36:31 PM PDT by U-238
With tensions at an all time high in Afghanistan following the Koran burnings, the urination video, and the killing of 16 civilians, attention is now falling on a long line of "Infidel" apparel and gear. Exhausted from how they feel they're being perceived, troops have taken to wearing patches and carrying items that label themselves infidels, and offer translation in local dialect. In the Muslim world an infidel means literally "one without faith" who rejects the central teachings of Islam. Military.com tracked down Clayton Montgomery at Mil-Spec Monkey, a large online seller of infidel gear, who says his most popular item by far is the "Pork Eating Crusader Patch." The patch includes an image of a knight in a Crusade's tunic, eating what appears to be a large ham hock, and lest there be any confusion a translation in Arabic. They haven't gone unnoticed. The website Muslim Awakening, posts a picture of what appears to be a German soldier with the patch adhered to his combat uniform. Other items are more subtle. There is the Infidel Zippo advertised as: "This one is small enough to hold some personal meaning and not be in-your-face to everyone you meet. Its perfect for pulling out at just the right moment to get the full effect."

Re “Is it kosher to piss on a burning koran to save the Earth by reducing CO2 emissions”? Yes, because you are using “holy water” to put it out, while saying the universal greeting ‘Peese on you’.
What in hell is the media doing? trying to get more of our troops either killed or court martialed?
So our soldiers would love to have a big slice of ham..this pc shit on dealing with the muslims has to stop.
and BTW...I support Staff Sgt. Bales
“....troops have taken to wearing patches and carrying items that label themselves infidels....”
At least our heroic troops don’t fall for that BS that islam is a ROP as our congresscritters do.
Let’s see how long it will take before they are told to remove those patches so as not to offeeeeeeeend the locals.
The media are out of control.
Kill islamists in Afghanistan and let them multiply like flies at home? Doesn’t make sense, does it?
Do a search for “Pork eating crusader” and you’ll find them, hurry before they run out.
The media is completely out of control.
I’m afraid you’re right. There will be a Panettagram banning the Pork eating Crusader patch within 24 hours.
D@mmit, I’m retired but I still want one of those!
Makes you wonder whose side they are on? GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS. The media can go to hell
I too support Staff Sgt. Bales.
Sense? we don't need no stinkin' sense.
So, what are our goals and what are the strategies to obtain same? (put Pam Geller in charge?)
Love it...And the SMOKIN’! BBQ ain’t bad either.
But notice - that’s a German Trooper, not US.
LOL. Almost needed a new keyboard and the bourbon burnt my nose.
