Skip to comments.U.S. Files Discrimination Lawsuits On Behalf Of Muslims
Posted on 09/02/2010 9:45:01 AM PDT by markomalley
The Obama Administrations taxpayer-funded Islamic defense program has been quite busy this week, filing several discrimination lawsuits on behalf of Muslims in different parts of the country and holding Justice Department meetings to discuss prosecuting anti-Muslim hate speech.
The legal actions come on the same week that the White House and various federal agenciesincluding the Department of Homeland Securityhosted a special workshop to provide members of radical Islamic groups with direct access to U.S. government funding, assistance and resources. Read all about that here.
Now the administration is flexing its legal muscle in its ardent quest to befriend the enemy. A federal civil rights agency known as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed discrimination lawsuits against companies in Nebraska, California and Colorado for discriminating against Muslims by not accommodating prayer breaks and forbidding a headscarf on the job.
The government sued meatpacking plants in Greeley Colorado and Grand Island Nebraska for religious and racial harassment because dozens of Muslim employees were denied prayer time during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The lawsuit seeks changes to policies and procedures to accommodate Muslim workers, payment for past and future damages and punitive damages.
In a third lawsuit filed this week the EEOC claims that an outdoor apparel store discriminated against a Muslim female job applicant in northern California because she wore a headscarf known as a hijab. The company has a longstanding employee dress code banning any sort of head covering but the government asserts that in this particular case its discriminating on the basis of religion.
Also this week, the Justice Department met with a coalition of Islamic groups that demand the administration criminally prosecute anti-Muslim rhetoric as hate speech. Besides investing more resources to combat discrimination against Muslims, coalition leaders want Attorney General Eric Holder to make a strong public statement condemning hate crimes, harassment and discrimination against Muslims.
Am I allowed to start cursing in my posts when talking about this development?
Because everything I want to say is profane.
I judge a tree by its fruit, and the fruit of Islam is 57 crap hole countries, with more on the way. I hate evil, so I hate Islam. Now come arrest me you FedGov Communist pukes!
Is it discriminatory for businesses to exclusively buy foodstuffs (like meat) from muslim vendors?
One of these day I won’t hold myself back, and then I’ll get banned.
That First Amendment is a real #@!$%.
So, is Zer0 a radical Islamist or not? You decide. I have.
And Holder is now suing Sheriff Arpaio for enforcing the law.
Yes, we have a banana republic.
Christians get this type of protection???
...just not the 'struggle' Sharpton was talking about.
That's going to be a problem for them when the Saudis finally complete their "Mecca time" clock in the segregated capital of the Islamic empire.
Will they have to respond to the call to prayer based on Mecca time?
I wonder what would happen if every American created their own religion and demanded special accommodations from employers and government so they could practice it. I bet the legal system could be clogged up for decades.
Move over Arizona.
Every day there are new expressions of the fact that not only are the patients running the asylum, but that the Criminally Insane Ward is now in charge.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
More nails in the Dem coffin known as November 2.
And yet, liberal heads explode in anguish when Americans believe Obama is a Muslim.
Amazing. The Obama administration cheers as Christians
and Jews are slaughted worldwide, and works to put
a VICTORY mosque at the 911 GroundZero, as it brings
millions of the enemy into America and defends everyone
of them, even as they murder the military and civilians.
Standing in line at the checkout register, I noticed the female clerk had a scarf around her shoulders. When the two ladies in front of me had finished and moved on, I approached the register. The clerk proceeded to don her headscarf since a man was coming near.
I felt offended!!! What, am I some sort of second class citizen, unworthy to see her hair? Does she need some sort of protection against my very presence? I was singled out because of my gender! I felt dirty, ashamed, humiliated, unequal.
That's gotta be worth a couple of million, don'tcha think? OK, that part was joking but really, was I not discriminated against? What if a white clerk donned plastic gloves each time a Black approached the register? The answer (and the reflex outrage) would be obvious.
I’m right there with ya HushTX
Makes ya want to start this gub mint over again from the start.
Is it just me or is that first link broken?
This should be on front page news-BUMP!
Sorry (forgot to check for relative references)
That’s going to be a problem for them when the Saudis finally complete their “Mecca time” clock in the segregated capital of the Islamic empire”
The European Infidels are responsible for the clock construction. The saudis just purchased it.
The saudis cannot construct something like that without Infidel help.
Point that out; otherwise, it makes them look competent at something besides t_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ m.
Besides, with 2/3 of the male population unwilling to work, who else would build it?
Strange behavior for someone who’s denying he’s a Muslim.
“While the U.S. government has kept the event quiet, it was announced in a newsletter by a Saudi-funded group (Islamic Society of North America or ISNA) that was a co-conspirator in a federal terrorist funding case a few years ago. Featured in a Judicial Watch special report on Muslim charities that finance terrorism, ISNA is firmly committed to spreading the radical form of Islam, which is the driving force behind Jihad.
Now the Obama Administration is helping ISNA and its radical Islamic counterparts access American taxpayer resources as well as top government officials.”
Not good at all.
I guess some peaceful wahhabi is coming over to visit soon...better get the hummus ready.
Establishing a religion?
IT’S NOT A RACE, AND IT’S POLITICAL, NOT RELIGIOUS.
If I were king, the deportations would have begun a long time ago. Mohammedism and liberty are mutual exclusive. Muslims will always choose Islam over being an American any day, just as I am a Christian first and an American second.
The majority of the people in the US have steadily lost their rights to accommodate the rights of the minority. I think we are all tired of 70% of the people being forced to live the way only 20% of the people want.
The tyranny of the minority.
I asked myself the rhetorical question, “where does this idiotic assault on America end?” And I answered my own question - “by terminating the current usurper’s occupancy of the WH and undoing EVERY destructive thing he has done since 01/20/09. This HAS to end.
After that, if the muzzies can’t handle freedom in America, there is NOTHING preventing them from leaving. We’ll even hold the door open for them to make sure that they aren’t offended when it hits them in the a$$.
I dare anyone to tell me Obama is not a radical against us.
I LIKE this idea!! 300+ million individual religions, all clamoring for special exemptions from the government!! BEAUTIFUL!!!!
This is treason plain and simple.Yet political correctness and racial profiling and racial warfare ENABLES and PROTECTS Obama.
How profoundly sad....beyond words.
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason and brought to justice.
Our tax dollars at work. Isn't that special?
Where is the protection from harrasment and hate speech when a nutcase and his followers harrass the mourners at a funeral of one of our fallen heros? Where is the protection for voters of any color when the Black Panthers spew hate and talk about killing white babies ?
I so hate this dumb f—k usurper and everyone associated with him.
So Bo is going after the mouse now?
First Islam is Hate Speech!
Second Islam is discrimination!
Third Islam is bigoted!
Seems Islam the Governments choice of religion; on top of not being able to supervise education, public security, finances, border or the U.S. Constitution.
Anything anyone needs to know is in their own precepts, writings, and actions; see global actions for empirical results.
Now for the real point, if a business does not provide the same services or benefits equally, to all then there is no discrimination; especially based on personal choice.
I hate radical Muslims. I think Islam is a failed, terroristic, anti-freedom, cult of evil. I hate Islam.
Come on by, Justice Department!
Islamic supremacists believe it IS a race and that kufir are subhumans spawned by pigs and monkeys.
What is even more amazing has been, since 9/11, the almost complete absence of any discrimination or violent acts against Muslims in the USA.
Americans have been admirably restrained and tolerant, under the circumstances.
However, the increasingly aggressive behavior of radical Islamic groups -- and the evident cooperation of the federal government -- is virtually guaranteed to increase the risk of a violent backlash.
The clock is being constructed inside Mecca by non-muslims?
There is supposed to be a death penalty for any non-muslim who enters Mecca or Medina.
People who behave like 7th century minaret climbing maggot infested monkeys that want our death do not deserve ANY hate speech protection.
I feel the country is like a wounded elephant in a river being surrounded by piranha of all types each taking a bite out of our body until they have destroyed us.
Some of the piranha are enemies within and some external but enemies just the same. We need to be able to call them out without fear of our own government (one of the many piranha) attacking us.
Have Holder and Obama ever heard of something called the first amendment? Freedom of speech?
This is not America anymore.
Maybe what we need is a movement to renounce citizenship to a country that that has become a dictatorship. A tyranny of fiat money against our own constitution, and slavery to bureaucrats. Never mind that illegals have MORE rights than the so called citizens. You try to commit identity theft. You try NOT to pay for your care at a hospital, being a citizen means getting to be bankrupted for being born here. No wonder people think the president wasn’t born here, and is a muslim. His every action says otherwise.
This is no longer America.
It’s tempting, isn’t it? I think my new religion would prohibit me from working on Fridays or before 10:00 on any day, and it would require me to alienate as many of my employer’s clients as possible. If the employer resisted that should be worth a few million $$. Would the ACLU support me?
Ok ... then let's also prosecute anti-infidel rhetoric as hate speech and make the Koran a crime .... since it is full of hate speech.
