Lib Dem's anti-Islam rants: 'Put pork restaurant next to mosque'

A Liberal Democrat candidate has refused to apologise for a series of shocking Islamophobic comments. Sick Dave Stone suggested a pork restaurant and a topless bar – named after Islam's holiest city – should be built next to a mosque.

The would-be councillor, who is the party's candidate for a by-election in Redcar and Cleveland on 19 January, said:

"Regarding the mosque being built near ground zero. I say let
them build it. But then, across the street we should put a topless bar
called 'You Mecca Me Hot' … and next to that a pork rib restaurant …
Then we'll see who's tolerant."

A number of posts on his Facebook page were seemingly calculated to
deliberately offend Muslims – including spreading outright smears.
Stones claimed that the Royal British Legion were "not selling poppies in certain areas of the UK", implying that objections from Muslims were behind the decision:

  1. Now this is odd. Anyone who would be against this councilors suggestion would be suggesting that Islam is intolerant and is therefore, a racist. Of course we should build a topless BBQ bar and grill with lots of pork and so on. This would show the peaceful and tolerant nature of Islam and put a stop to all those racists once and for all. Ill make the first reservation to eat there once my Kevlar suit and hat and jockey shorts are ready.
