For Kate: Because I Am A Hate Mongering, Right-Wing Nazi Nut

And also just because I am from the next state over, and take delight in all things stupid that Texans do. I personally don't see New Mexicans holding pig races to keep Muslims at bay, but then again, New Mexico is a state where cock fights are still legal, so who knows what they'd come up with.

Texas town fights mosque development with pig races

The small Texas town of Katy is divided as Muslims living in the hamlet attempt to build a new, larger mosque for worshipers over the objection of other town residents. While some people living in the town worry about "too much commercial development," others are more forthright in expressing their fear of Islam and terrorism. One resident warns that a terrorist 'faction' could infiltrate the existing Muslim community of Katy. And the neighbor of the mosque site begins holding Friday pig races on his property to make his Muslim neighbors uncomfortable.

When a CNN International reporter asks him if he was trying to be offensive with the pig races, he responds, "Probably."
