Piggy Banks Too Offensive for Dutch Bank

Dutch Dhimmis are abandoning their own culture like rats off a sinking ship. From the Times:

Knorbert the piglet has been dropped as the mascot of Fortis Bank after it decided to stop giving piggy banks to children for fear of offending Muslims.

The decision has been viewed in the Netherlands as the ritual slaughter of a popular pig by political correctness. To some, it is the latest sign of uncertainty in Europe's most tolerant country about how far it should go to accommodate the sensitivities of minorities. It comes as the country is braced for a backlash against the plans of Geert Wilders, a right-wing politician, to release a critical film about the Koran.
In a world where the Three Little Pigs story is too offensive to receive literary awards and where Piglet calendars have been banned for the same reason, I suppose the piggy bank was on borrowed time.

I'm saddened to discover that most of my childhood was patently offensive. I apologize to all who have been hurt by existence.
