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.
No I think it's more like we fell down the Rabbit Hole...and Wonderland, here we come!
I'm sorry but were the muslims hired to perform a job or be religious coordinators? Did they agree to take the job or were they forced into a labor camp?
We both know there could come a time when there are no "Non-Radical Muslims".
Recall, too, that Radical Islam has slaughtered hundreds of thousands more "Non-Radical Muslims" than non-Muslims.
Were does this nonsense stop? If the company has a policy against wearing ball bearing and nail laden explosive vests to work does a muslim's religion now make it okay because we don't want to deny him his chance to become a martyr?
bkmark for research
I’ve lived a long and fruitful life. I’m BEGGING to have it forced upon me.
Yeah and when will it be a so called HATE CRIME when the progressive left attack Christians?
With Obama’s JD, Christians need not apply.
“Three Christians Arrested by Dearborn, Michigan Police during Muslim Outreach”
Shouts of Allahu Akbar as Christians arrested
Where do they draw the line on what they consider ‘hate speech’?
How about the Truth?
Allah is a false god. Muslims live in darkness and are lost and deceived, and they serve a radical anti-Constitutional and anti-Western ideology rather than a religion.
And their souls are forfeit to Lucifer without Jesus Christ.
That statement would get me stoned in many parts of the ME.
If they can't stone them here, they will attempt to shut Islam's critics up in other ways. This is NOT the direction our nation wants to go.
how about just reciting the actual history of Mohamed.
His marriage to a 5 year old.
His effort to use religion as a means of nomadic government
His religion of conversion by sword
Islam’s oppression of the non islamic
blowing up the budist statues
it goes on and on.
When they have exhausted all ‘peaceful’ forms of dominance, many factions will grow increasingly violent to get what they want. I don't believe for a minute that there hasn't been an attack on American soil of recent because the DHS is on the job. I believe they are plotting their moves like a chess game and strategizing and manipulating us through our own laws right now. They hide behind organizations like CAIR and cry discrimination at ever turn. They're following the Leftists handbook who have been successfully playing and winning at the victim card for years.
But, beware when their mask finally comes off here, it will be a horror.
Let me be perfectly clear, Americans are just being abused now.
Obamunism is a lie.
I don't like Muslims. I don't like they're f-ing language, I don't like they're f-ing culture, and I certainly don't like they're f-ing religion.
Come prosecute me dickheads...
I don't like their fucking language, I don't like their fucking culture, and I absolutely don't like their fucking religion.
When the DOJ goes after AZ but “reaches out” to every Muslim it speaks volumes. And they wonder why people think he is a Muslim.
