Muslims Get the Last Laugh at Swift

I am sure many of you were following the incidents that occurred at the Swift plant in Colorado a few months back. Basically, Muslims were demanding extra breaks in order to fill their quota of 5 prayer times per day to appease the wrath of their moon-cult god, Allah. Well, Swift buckled after the complaints of the non-Muslim workers (who are in the majority), refused to allow the extra breaks (because it’s unfair and discriminatory to the non-Muslims, duh) and the Muslims hit the roof. As you will recall the story ended with about 100 Muslims workers walking off the job and eventually getting fired. The full story is here in case you don’t know the details or may need a refresher. Read it all, ’cause it’s a real hum-dinger.

Now, an update to the story: Swift has been ordered to pay $365,000 in compensation to the Muslims who were fired. The company also has to pay out for having Muslims sign a note alerting them to the fact that they may have to occasionally handle pork products. It’s appalling yet not surprising. These incidents are not isolated events. They are history-making events which are setting precedents all over the nation.

MINNEAPOLIS — Under a settlement to a federal lawsuit, up to 100 Somali Muslims who are current or former workers at Gold’n Plump Inc. will receive a total of $365,000.

The settlement was filed in Minneapolis on Friday. It sprang from allegations of religious discrimination at the company’s chicken processing plants in Cold Spring and Arcadia, Wis.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed lawsuits against St. Cloud-based Gold’n Plump and the Work Connection Inc., an employment agency in St. Paul, which handled some hiring for the plant.

Under the settlement, Gold’n Plump agreed to pay $215,000 to workers who were terminated for taking prayer breaks.

The Work Connection will pay $150,000 to workers who were asked to sign a form acknowledging that they might be required to handle pork, which many Muslims consider unclean….

So the proposition that Muslims have special privileges in American society, to which others are not privy, is now enshrined in precedent.

“Yes, we can.”
