How Offensive

From Andrew Studdaford on The Corner today comes this latest bit of PC idiocy:

For over a century, a statue of a wild boar stood in the center of Englandís oldest public park. It was damaged during the Second World War. Finally, it has been restored. The old boar was going to be put back where it belonged. Not any more. These plans have, apparently, now been "abandoned for fear of offending Muslims, whose religion considers pigs to be 'unclean'."

And if you want another tiny example of the Westís supine response to Islamic fanaticism ≠ thatís it.
