My reaction to the Muslim's outrage over the puppy:
I am outraged that they think they can immigrate to another country and have that country bend over backwards to change, so their delicate sensibilities are not offended.
If they don't like seeing dogs that much, move back to whatever god -forsaken place you came from and start wiping your ass with your bare left hand again. so there.

That is... so funny, if it wasn't such a scary thing. Europe's liberal traditions are being undermined by Muslim "outrage" at this or that and diversity there is one step to a new fascism - and puppies? I mean, I can understand why women are considered dirty and need to be covered at all times, but puppies? Why did [insert your made up deity here] make puppies if they are so [your deity here]damn dirty?
