Who might that be you ask?
John P. Rowe for number one (this week at least).
Dammit Snarl – who the hell is John P. Fucking Rowe you growl? Is there a f’n point here other than the one on your head?
Yeah, yeah, hold your knickers on faithful reader. I know the AIR been a bit sparse for reading material as of late, but we are so very concerned about the latest outrage in the age of Obama adversely affecting your blood pressure – well not really, but hey, it’s a nice platitude no?
Okay, here we go… John P. Rowe is the EEOC pin suited shark that filed suit against a company called Star Trucking. H/T to Pat Dollard and the Conservative Infidel
And just why has Mr. Rowe got his SJW Flag hoisted, guns loaded, and is bringing the full weight of the US Federal Government to bear on a small business?
Two Muslim employees have stated that their Religious Beliefs have been violated by being fired for refusing to ship alcohol.
Before I got too much further into this – here are a few things to keep in mind.
Nowhere in the Quaran or any of the Islam Sura’s is Alcohol forbidden. Period, Full stop – end of discussion. As in the Bible – the Quaran only warns against drunkenness. But again, Islam itself does NOT prohibit the use of Alcohol. I’ve asked this question on more than one occasion and to more than one devout Muslim – and they have ALL repeated the same answer.
The prohibition against Alcohol in places like Saudi, Kuwait, and other areas is due to the stricter interpretations of the Islamic religion. Mostly by the more fundamentalist hard core Whabbaist / Sunni Muslim sects have issued Fatwas against drinking Alcohol. Indeed, in many predominately Muslim countries that don’t follow the same strict rules, one can walk into any number of night clubs, hotels, and stores to purchase booze. Bahrain, and the UAE are two such examples. The Duty free zone in Bahrain International Airport has a liquor store in it as does the one in Dubai. How would I know? I’ve shopped there on visits to both.
Digest that and understand it fully. Because it bears weight on the rest of this post.
So back to our public enemy of the week…..
According to EEOC District Director John P. Rowe, who supervised administrative investigation prior to filing the lawsuit, “Our investigation revealed that Star could have readily avoided assigning these employees to alcohol delivery without any undue hardship, but chose to force the issue despite the employees’ Islamic religion.”
Star trucking COULD have done exactly that Mr. Rowe. However, they Constitutionally have NO OBLIGATION to do so.
As per the 1st amendment which states in plain language :
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Show me where the teachings of Islam forbid Muslims from delivering Alcohol… Oh right, as I’ve said it doesn’t.
Of course, Who needs Congress when you have the Gonorrhea infested SJW Whores at the EEOC? The two Muslim “victims” and the EEOC are making up law out of nothing. And in doing so violating the 1st Amendment, they are, in fact establishing a religious edict. The Whabbist Imams are so very pleased I am sure, but then again, when did that ever stop these knee jerk ambulance chasers like Mr. Rowe from waging a Social Justice crusade against fellow Americans? Here is the basis for the lawsuit according to the Chicago IL EEOC
Failure to accommodate the religious beliefs of employees, when this can be done without undue hardship, violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion. The EEOC filed suit, (EEOC v. Star Transport, Inc., Civil Action No. 13 C 01240-JES-BGC, U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois in Peoria, assigned to U.S. District Judge James E. Shadid), after first attempting to reach a voluntary settlement through its statutory conciliation process. The agency seeks back pay and compensatory and punitive damages for the fired truck drivers and an order barring future discrimination and other relief.
Star Trucking didn’t do any of the above. They did not discriminate against these drivers. They did not fail to accommodate them in any way shape or form.
I.E. They did not refuse the Muslim drivers the right to pull over their truck, stick their ass in the air 5 times a day and pray to their fucking moon god. Although that in fact would cost the company money in the end – In the trucking industry time is indeed money.
They did not say “you have to pull over and get drunk” in the trailer.
They did not say you have to hang out with the dock-master and get squiffy after you deliver the load.
They did not FORCE these drivers to do anything except to ask them to do their jobs, and drive the fucking trucks where they were supposed to go, and when they refused to do the jobs they SIGNED up for – they (Start trucking) fired them, and rightfully so.
Of course, not to be outdone – Public Enemy #2 John Hendrickson also of the EEOC has this to say:
John Hendrickson, the EEOC Regional Attorney for the Chicago District Office said, “Everyone has a right to observe his or her religious beliefs, and employers don’t get to pick and choose which religions and which religious practices they will accommodate.
You have the right to shut the fuck up John. You sanctimonious cunt. You’re making law up out of whole cloth. And AGAIN, you’re not even making laws up based on the written RELIGIOUS Tenants of Islam itself. AGAIN, let me write this in simple words so your tiny brain can comprehend it There is NO prohibition against alcohol in Islam.
Of course, Lawyers can never shut up – they love to hear themselves blather, so John Hendrickson doubles down on the Da Stoopid.
If an employer can reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious practice without an undue hardship, then it must do so. That is a principle which has been memorialized in federal employment law for almost50 years, and it is why EEOC is in this case.”
Which Star trucking did. They did not prohibit these drivers their religious rights. The EEOC is on this case, to make yet another “protected class” of citizen, Muslims. Radical Muslims at that. Moderate Muslims don’t do this, I know. I live near, work and interact with many of them and they both like an occasional drink, and some party like it’s 1999. So fuck off John, you and the entire EEOC are a bunch of fucking busy body bitches that need to be taken to task for your bullshit.
This lawsuit if frivolous – you should be laughed out of court by any judge with any sort of common sense, This suit is akin to suing for their feelings being hurt.
Truly, the enemy is among us… it wears a suit and puts things like .esq behind it’s signature.
Tree – Rope – EEOC SJW – Some assembly required.
Even if there were a prohibition against drinking alcohol in the Quran or Hadiths, these two bozos weren’t being expected to drink the stuff, any more than they’d be expected to drink from a shipment of sulfuric acid they were asked to haul. (Though, in the case of the sulfuric acid, we might be inclined to wish they would!)
“Tree – Rope – EEOC SJW – Some assembly required”
That’s a good start. However,
Orbit-400 kiloton warhead-interior of the DC Beltway- well, you get the idea…… 🙂
Having read a translation of the Book of the Recitation many years ago, I can recall one reference to prohibition, a request to abstain from wine.
Having said that, I need to point out that this action contradicts the frenzy over Religious Freedom Restoration laws. The government can’t have it both ways!
