Pig Recieves Pig's Foot In Mail

From CBS News.

Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig's foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News...

...Ibrahim Hooper, National Communications Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations - a target of King's hearings - said he found the situation confusing. He said his organization regularly receives pig-themed hate messages, including letters smeared with bacon.

"My guess is it was an anti-Muslim bigot, and bigots not being brain surgeons they probably got their signals crossed," he said.

UPDATE: A source on Capitol Hill told NBC News that the note "contained anti-Semitic ramblings" and referenced the radicalization hearings. King is Roman Catholic.

Letters smeared with bacon? Pig's Feet? This is making me hungry.

Such a lovely mixture of hate, or orchestrated hate, in this one. They even threw in a little "anti-Semitic rambling." King is "Roman Catholic" according to the article. In any case, Roman, seems to fit. I guess this will add to his scared grandmother vote.

My guess is he sent it to himself, either for propaganda purposes, or maybe he knew he would be hungry.

Sorry, I'm just sooo insensitive.
