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.
