Theme park shuts its gates after mass brawl breaks out over Muslims banned from wearing hijabs
Daily Mail ^ | 7:34 AM on 31st August 2011 | By Mark Duell

Posted on 08/31/2011 12:54:27 AM PDT by Niuhuru

A theme park was forced to shut its gates to visitors yesterday when a mass brawl broke out after Muslim women were banned from rides unless they removed their headscarves.

Two park rangers were hospitalised and 15 people were arrested in the scuffle at Rye Playland in New York.

The theme park was crowded with around 6,000 visitors. Roughly 3,000 were in a Muslim tour group celebrating a holiday at the end of Ramadan.

I am trying very hard to remain civil and reasonable in the wake of this latest outrage. But if a mass deportation of all Muslims (yes every last one of them, even the so-called "good Muslims") were to occur, suffice it to say that I wouldn't object.

They are truly the enemy within. They are not and can never be authentic Americans.

What if some of that extra fabric got caught in a gear or something and caused a woman was killed, would it make any difference to them?

They dont’ seem to understand that this isn’t their country. They didn’t build it and they don’t own it or have any right ot dictate the rules.

Of course if a hijab-wearing woman were to be strangled when her scarf gets entangled, her family would sue the park out of existence.

There is a solution: Design a close-fitting head cover that will not fly around loose during the ride, and give the women the choice of either wearing it or not riding.

AMEN!

I'm reminded of these wise words from Calvin Coolidge (with emphasis added in light of this act from the ROP adherents):

“American institutions rest solely on good citizenship. They were created by people who had a background of self-government. New arrivals should be limited to our capacity to absorb them into the ranks of good citizenship. America must be kept American. For this purpose it is necessary to continue a policy of restricted immigration. It would be well to make such immigration of a selective nature with some inspection at the source, and based either on a prior census or upon the record of naturalization. Either method would insure the admission of those with the largest capacity and best intention of becoming citizens. Those who do not want to be partakers of the American spirit ought not to settle in America.”

Staged. Half the people in the park were from the Muslim group and had been well warned ahead of time. More chaos to get in our faces with their bogus religion.

The hijab is a hazard around moving vehicles. Happened to a woman around here: She had on a hijab at an indoor go-cart place, and the end got wrapped around the axle. Isadora Duncan time. Very sad. Maybe they *want* that to happen to their women? (Woulnd’t be surprised.)

Probably not. Women are expendable to them and treated worse than animals.

If Mohamhead didn’t go to amusement parks then muzzlems shouldn’t go to amusement parks.

Amusement park rides are evil. They seduce muzzlems into smiling, laughing, and being happy for a few minutes. This is not allowed.

The time to be civil to these Muzzies who are just spoiling for fights and claim their rights etc is long past..It is time to tell these SOBS that their religion may dictate they wear this headdress but our regs require the safety of all visitors, come first..and if they do not like our rules and regs they are welcome to leave our nation.
They are trying to get the camels nose under the tent of our legal system and it is long over due time to tell them in plain, direct English that they are not making our rules and we are not bending to them..get the hell out of America.

This is a Kiddie Park play land (I.E. lots of little kids).

It would be a perfect place for a terrorist to have a killing media event. Not only that it is in New York where they could claim another 'Victory over the Great Satan'.

Thank God the Park's Security stood up and did not fold due to political correctness.

Deffinately not if it were a women.
I have a problem with people who say they
have strong beliefs and everyone else
must conform to their belief. That is not
what America was founded on. We accept your right to believe and say what ever you wish but forcing
others to accept and adhere to yours is not
the American way. Amen

The Muslim American Society of New York had been advised of the rule [no headgear of any kind on rides] many times before its tour took place, parks official Peter Tartaglia said.

In other words, the Muslim American Society planned this incident as a provocation.

It sounds like they are trying to use camel toes. I think they have more love for actual camels.

I cannot pray fast enough that there will be a bounty paid for catching Moslems and having them sent to deportation centers.

They have no place in America as far as I am concerned, its all about Islam, its always all about Islam. There can be absolutely no co-existence with Islam.

Its like being a sheep and being hired on at a shearing center owned by wolves. They will wait, and wait, and when you are just at the best moment for their agenda they will come after you.

Islam and its Koran is the Satanic verses.

Lose the cult though and they can be my next door neighbor anytime.

When that belief system is directly antithetical to the U.S. Constitution, and seeks to ultimately overthrow it, it is time to draw the line. Islam is a tyrannical political system that uses religion as a beard, and as a way to control the masses. It is not a “religion” in the 1A sense.

I would not be surprised if the intention was to find or create a reason to sue, either this year, or next year when the park tries to find a way to make them stay away.

Could you imagine Catholic nuns breaking out into a brawl if they were asked to remove THEIR head coverings?

Hell no — they’d either remove them and adapt, or they’d choose not the ride the ride.

When I was a kid, we used to go to Playland each year for a company picnic. I was able, as a child, to take my tickets and go off on my own for hour and hours, finding my parents for lunch and any family activities.

It's difficult to imaging the playground of my childhood has become such a dump and a battlefront for hate filled radical islam trying to defy basic rules, convention and general courtesy that every other American has no issue with.

I knew of a girl who had very long hair and was riding a go-cart. Her hair got caught and it nearly killed her. Common sense is lost on some people. I say let them ride and deal with the consequences.

WP, it ain’t racism ‘cause Muslim ain’t a race, but you’re expressing bigotry. Substitute “Jew” for “Muzzie” and you are just like the worst of the mullahs and imams.

It’ s easy as 1, 2 3.

First, stop immigration from all Muslim countries.
Second, deport all illegal alien Muslims
Third, expel all legal Muslim immigrants as traitors.
