fair trade

Think this thing through, guys.

Turkey’s red meat association has ordered a consignment of prize Dutch cattle to be sent back to the Netherlands, saying it no longer wants to farm the cows due to the diplomatic crisis between the countries.

[A] symbolic consignment of 40 Holstein Friesian cattle was already being sent back to the Netherlands.

“If they don’t accept them back then we will distribute the cuts” after slaughter …. [story]

No comment on whether The Netherlands will reciprocate with their Turkish immigrants.

Erdogan’s current outraged whine is about the Dutch bein’ Nazis, so…

    Reciprocate? Nah, there’s no market for fillet of Turkish muzzie immigrant.

    ^^^^ Long pork.

    Oh, wait, Muzzies don’t eat “long pork” unless, of course, they’re producing videos showing how to eat the heart of an enemy.

    I don’t know why Erdogan is upset – the Dutch just sealed their doom by rejecting Geert Wilders and re-elected their Liberal Prime Minister in today’s election.
    In 20 years, they’ll be overrun with beard-men and bag-ladies and there will be dirty muzzie ghettoes in the big cities (farms are too much work, gotta go with the free stuff) and their beautiful ancient churches will have minarets.

    Cows are political footballs in Turkey?
    I thought that only happens in Texas.

    If some pirates steal the ones being shipped, I hope they wear cowboy hats.

    For optics.

    Okay, okay. You win.
    They’re dairy cows, right up until they go to the slaughterhouse.
