A group of Mu-slim workers allege they were fired by a New Brighton tortilla factory for refusing to wear uniforms that they say were immodest by Is-lamic standards.
Six Somali women claim they were ordered by a manager to wear pants and shirts to work instead of their traditional Is-lamic clothing of loose-fitting skirts and scarves, according to the Council on Amer-ican-Is-lamic Relations (CA-IR), a civil liberties group that is representing the women.
Muslim women say New Brighton company’s dress code violates faith
The women have filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Aint divesity just grand?
Anyone find out if these ahem..”immigrants” are even legal?
Silly me. Minor detail.
I know. Let’s plan a field trip to a Muzlim country and file a similair law suit.
Ironic, isn’t it- that we allow these so called cultures to shove their oppressive ways down our throats.
Yet America is the one accused by the world court of arrogance.
Psssttt. Industry standards -including employment regulations are for everyone.
As in “everyone.”
Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Agnostic, Amish and oh yes….even the holier than thou Muzlims. It’s called the condition of your employment.
Don’t like it?
Go drive a cab in Saudi Arabia.
Oops my bad. Women aren’t allowed to drive there at all.
Oh, but to heck with safety too right?
Or maybe CA-IR, the terrorist org. wants their women to work around machines and wear loose fitting clothes. This way when they get severely injured, -they can sue the company for that too.
Maybe someone ought to clue in the whiney, demanding Muzlims that people from all over the globe come to our shores for 2 things: Freedom and Opportunity. You have unending opportunitiy to work and become successful , and the freedom to bloody quit if you don’t feel like abiding by your employer’s dress code or rules.
Planning a vacation this year?
How bout Somalia
Somalia has not had a functioning national government for 14 years.
The lives of Somalis continue to be blighted by a “catastrophic” level of daily violence and “brutality”, says a report by a medical charity.
Most of the victims are women and children.
MSF says that Somalia has one of the worst rates of child mortality in the world.
They should be kissing the ground in New Brighton or anywhere else in America.
How many ways can you say audacity?
Obama in Somali garb…how um..appropriate, no?
Oh and let us not forget this charming event.
Somali cleric calls for pope’s death
A HARDLINE cleric linked to Somalia’s powerful Islamist movement has called for Mus-lims to “hunt down” and kill Pope Benedict XVI for his controversial comments about Isl-am.
Better yet, why don’t all those defending these Somalis adopt some of their beloved customs?
Starting with THIS
The most common form of female genital mutilation (FGM) or female genital cutting (FGC) practiced in Somalia is Type III (commonly referred to as infibulation and in Somalia, the “Pharaonic circumcision”).
Eighty percent of all genital procedures for women and girls consist of this form which is the most harmful form. The less radical or Type I (commonly referred to as clitoridectomy and in Somalia sometimes called “sunna”) is practiced mainly in the coastal towns of Mogadishu, Brava, Merca and Kismayu.
The procedures leave a lifetime of physical suffering for the women.
Virtually all Somali women are subjected to one of these procedures. A recent estimate by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) places the percentage of the women in Somalia who have undergone this procedure at 90 percent.
There are several other rationales expressed for the practice in Somalia. Some men claim the artificial tightness heightens se-xual enjoyment. Some say the smoothness of the scar is esthetically beautiful.
Indeed. I suggest all the loud mouth female lib Izlam apologists line up for that multi culti lil Somali “custom” eh.

Talk about your ingrates.
