British Trader Banned for ‘Islamophobic’ Knights Templar Coffee Mugs

A British trader was banned from a local market after a shopper complained about his Christian coffee mugs.

The U.K. has rapidly degenerated into an Orwellian police state where butter knives are illegal and offensive memes merit hard prison time. Perhaps no better example of this can be found than an incident reported this morning by the Daily Mail, in which a 56-year-old woman was banned from having a stall in Loughborough Market for refusing to remove Knights Templar coffee mugs from her displayed merchandise.

The reason the mugs merited such a frantic reaction from market staff? They might be “offensive” to Muslims.

At this point any positive expression for British heritage has been so strictly regulated and censured that even something as simple as a cheerful Christian coffee mug stands out like bollocks on a bulldog as a symbol of xenophobia and internalized bigotry against brown people.

As Daily Mail reports:

“Tina Gayle has been prohibited from having a stall in Loughborough Market after someone complained about the mugs.

She said the complainant had told the council the £6 Knights Templar mugs were offensive to Muslims and so she was asked to remove them from her stall.

When she refused to do so she was sent a letter and informed she had been given an outright ban.

The mugs in question feature a drawing of a noble knight and are branded with a Latin motto which translates to ‘Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to Your Name give the glory.’

How terribly insensitive. This is nearly as horrific as watching pornography without a license.

“Speaking to MailOnline Miss Gayle, 56, said: ‘It’s very unfair. The council told me about the complaint about the mugs and them being offensive to Muslims. They asked me to remove them. I said that was ridiculous and told them ‘no’.

‘They then printed off a letter on Friday at 4pm and said I’m banned. You’re meant to have three written warnings before expulsion and they didn’t do that. It was apparently something so bad they were banning me completely.’

It’s good to see that market officials have their priorities in order.

All it takes is one grievously butthurt individual complaining to merit a ban and public humiliation it would seem, as the complainant said the mugs were offensive because the Knights Templar killed Muslims in defensive crusades some 700 years ago.
