Maryland Food Collective: Anti-Semites

In late April, a checkout person at the Maryland Food Collective told a student that her “I Stand With Israel T-Shirt” was offensive, and refused to serve her..

Pro-Israel student refused service

Jewish students attended the collective’s weekly meeting April 30, where workers asserted their right to deny service to anyone they chose.

Co-op offers apology to Jewish student

Hmmmm.
This is a University sanctioned dining facility…The University of Maryland.

I always thought the whole idea of co-ops was about about people not profits, tolerance and er..cooperation..silly me.

food-coop.jpg

Psst…University of Maryland leftards: This is called…um..”bigotry.”

Oh wait. Howzabout the Maryland Food “Co-op” Collective cashiers wear neon signs announcing their sympathies, ..you know ..like this anti semitic cashier could have worn a t-shirt saying:

“I would serve radical Muzlims and suicide bombers who murdered 3,000 of my fellow Americans and blow up innocent Israeli children, (because if I don’t, they will probably bomb me).bomb-boom.gif…but Jews can’t buy lunch.”

Better yet, try denying “service” to a Black or gay person and see how long your ahem..”co-op” remains in your student center.blackani-ddy.gif

Geez. I had the silly notion that “customer service” actually means “giving service to the customer”, not concerning yourself with their t-shirts or political statements.boggled.gif

Nothing novel here. Blatant anti-Israel bias typical of these leftard co-op participants, which has been bloody obvious in both national political discourse at large and now on this campus of the University of Maryland.

What self-respecting business “defers” customers and tolerates a biased, obnoxious cashier, who chooses whom to serve based on whether he or she feels intellectually “offended” by the political leanings of the potential customer.

Not to mention that this behavior is against the UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND HUMAN RELATIONS CODE , which obviously doesn’t apply to Jews.

What’s the name of the “cashier” in question..Is he/she hiding?

Had this been an anti Muzlim incident CA-IR, the unindicted co-conspirators of terrorism with ties to Ham-ASS, would have threatened lawsuits and ensured that the University of Maryland write press releases which would no doubt make headlines.

But I’ll bet not a single one of you have even heard bout this lil “incident” eh.

Jews are way too passive.
Bring a dang lawsuit.

Better yet, get on line in a burrka next time.burka-oman.jpg..you’ll have your tuna sandwich in no time.

    The far left is only tolerant of people with believe like they do. I have experience more hate, and Intolerance from the left, than I have ever from the Right.

    One can only hope that the misguided server at the co-op was properly chastised….

  3. Debbie says:

    Jews are way too passive, you said. That’s funny but it’s also true. But it seems fashionable today to be anti-Irael or anti-Jew. Such a shame.

  4. Chris says:

    I saw this when it came out… I wonder how many people wearing commie shirts the cashier served. Heck, they probably got a pat on the back in private, along with a raise.

  8. cube says:

    I wonder if the cashier has any problems serving someone wearing a Che shirt?

    BTW I’m very curious about the cashier’s name too.

    DD2: I do! I do!

  9. Frasypoo says:

    I bet they would serve people wearing bombs strapped onto them.
    My cousins lived in Jerusalem so we grew up around stickers that said Pray for Israel and a lot of the Israeli culture was very apparent through them.I am so glad for that.

    Got a link so we can email the university and explain our displeasure? Nice article, amazing what we bloggers can dig up…

    i stand with Israel, and every FREE Nation, who will protect Free People from the horror of monsters.

    Your right, I haven’t heard this one at all. How do the libs continue to get away with their selective bigatry?

  13. MariesTwoCents says:

    This is getting to be too much. This constant attacks on Jews, Christians, Catholics, etc.. But some want to build foot baths for Muslims in schools and airports and that’s ok?

  14. pela68 says:

    Woot?

    Where can I get a “I stand with Israel” T- shirt? And exactly where can I find this cashier? Just try not serving me because of a pro Israel Tee!
    That would be 95 kilos of serous anger comming at ya!

    I have this suspicion that if the US government suddenly dropped all support for Israel and through it to the ragheads then the left wing would suddenly be supporting Israel. It is not about Israel and the Palestinian baby killers..it is about doing whatever they can do to overthrow the constitution of the USA and instill their perverted ideas of socialism

    Great write-up, Angel! Why can’t they ever see the hypocrisy?

  21. John says:

    “Jewish students attended the collective’s weekly meeting April 30, where workers asserted their right to deny service to anyone they chose.”

    Imagine what would have happened had they refused service to an illegal immigrant?! The mainstream media would be all over this.

    August 28 1963….by, Dr. Martin L. King

    ‘”I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

    I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
    I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
    This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”
    And when this happens, When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

    almost 40 years….and where are we today???????

  27. Seth says:

    The cashier was obviously another one of those dimwit liberals whose entire range of political, scientific and religious awareness comes from a list of bumper sticker slogans.

    I was really amused the other day when, as I was watching some video from the yearly KOS convention at another site, an attending lib couple was stopped and interviewed, and the woman stated that she was against the Bush Administration because she was tired of being deprived of her civil liberties. When asked exactly which civil liberties she was being deprived of, she fell silent — she was evidently confused as such specifics hadn’t been included on the bumper sticker. After some fumbling around, her companion, trying to save her from embarrassment (it’s hard to believe that liberals actually possess that emotion, given much of what they say) asserted lamely that he knew some people who had been turned away at airports.

    Another interviewee charged that FOX is a conservative propaganda tool. When asked if he had ever watched FOX News, he said he had not, nor does he even own a television.

    I imagine that the cashier was merely referencing the bumper sticker she owns that says Israel is an eeevil colonial power that persecutes the poor, peaceful, guileless “Palestinians”.

    Egad, there are armies of those moonbats out there!

  28. in2thefray says:

    Perhaps this student can get help from the ACLU. Stop laughing ! They’re gonna help that Iraqi with the peace shirt vs TSA. Seriously can’t one “stand with Israel” in a peaceful manner. I think so. Let’s have fair is fair.

  29. Yankee Doodle says:

    Someone needs to slam them for anti-Semitism.

    And the moment CAIR opens their mouths, look for a way to sue them.

    Trouble is, the bad guys have the backing of the petrodollars.

    Well, damn… here I am, Jewish, with a full platter of food in the check-out line at the co-op and the dhimmi cashier doesn’t wish to check me through.

    Now, what am I gonna’ do with all this food I can’t buy? I guess I’ll decorate the cashier.

    Hmmmm…. now that’s better, but somethin’s missing…

    What if we just added a bruise or two right here… and here…

    Yes, that IS better.

    Ah! That was so satisfying, I’m not even hungry anymore!

    Has the University spoken about this incident? Until they do, and make it clear that anti-semitism will not be tolerated, the Feds should cut off all funding to the University, and so should the state of MAryland.

    This is the USA, not Saudi Arabia. Thank GOD!

  40. michael says:

    Originally, I was from Maryland, and my parents are Terps. It’s sad to see it in the news this way.

  41. Vakil Smallen says:

    As a longtime member of the Maryland Food Collective and someone who knows the situation personally, noone on this site has made any attempt to understand the situation. First, the student did receive service, the worker simply said SHE was not going to serve the student and passed her on to someone else. Admittedly, this must have been humiliating for the student, but lets be honest here. Second, the worker took offense not at the phrase I Stand With Israel, but that the shirt proclaimed the student as a zionist. Zionism is a political theory, one that not every Jew agrees with, so can this really be called anti-Semitism? Real oppression happens all over the world, but don’t jump down someone’s throats when such a small action happens. One of the coolest, most accepting places any college campus has ever known was almost shut down because of one worker’s emotional reaction and what can only be called a high-powered blitz from various Jewish organizations. What the worker did was not officially sanctioned by the Co-op, only her right to express what she says. If anyone on this forum can explain to me how suppressing the political voice of a citizen of this nation through fear is what makes us the USA, not Saudi Arabia, pass it on. And to the individual who wished he could bruise the worker, I’m glad cooler/smarter heads prevailed on both sides. Can it be eye for an eye when I haven’t actually physically harmed you?
