"Nothing trumps Muslim identity politics": Truckers win big after refusing to transport alcohol

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I've talked before about "politically correct poker" -- the concept that certain victim groups are "more equal than others" and are more likely to have their grievances taken seriously.

Right now, Muslim men hold the highest hand -- even higher than Muslim women.

We've all heard about the Christian bakery sued for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding.

But what about the two Muslim truck drivers who refused to transport alcohol?

There's nothing in the Koran about transporting alcohol. And why did they become truckers in the first place?

Anyway, the two men were fired six years ago, the Obama administration sued on their behalf for "religious discrimination", and a jury just awarded the men almost a quarter of a million dollars in damages.

Do you think a Christian truck driver would win a similar case?

This seems to be the old Ottoman Empire in religious garb trying to forward their age-old agenda of ruling the world. Nothing more, nothing less. And nothing new….

I look forward to the day where we have sharia police telling some aboriginal person on the street to put away their 2L bottle of Stone Cold Two Rivers beer.

In the past, Muslim female newborns were buried alive. Now they just wait until they are sixteen or seventeen and have an Honor Killing Party.

You obviously don’t own a business in Canada, or especially Ontario. It is almost impossible to fire anyone or even refuse to hire them without mountains of red tape involved. The bureaucrats have so little to do because there are so many of them have to justify their hefty paychecks by taking ant slight, however unjustified, to heart. In Ontario, the 300,000 well paying manufacturing jobs lost have been replaced by 300,000 well paid civil servant jobs that are totally unnecessary.

If I owned a trucking business, I wouldn’t hire them at all. If they don’t want to do all of the job description, then I wouldn’t give them a job. Or, if you do want to hire them, put the terms of employment in writing and have them sign it. They will likely challenge it, but those are the terms of employment that they agreed to. If they don’t like it, too bad, so sad!

Like I said before, and I will say it again!
When it comes to employees working for an employer, they have to do the duties that is required from everyone, that is working for the said employer. If that employee doesn’t wish to do the work. Then that said employee has to take it upon themselves, and either wake up and start adding to the company by pulling his or her own weight, or they can leave the company, and have another person out there take their position. That sounds cold or it sounds to the point. But it is the truth. It should never be about anything else. These people are getting paid to do a job period….

I worked for SNC-Lavalin when the cancelled our Christams Party wine service because three Muslims in our department felt the party wasn’t “inclusive”. I shit you not…we were obliged to have fruit drinks with our steak because a few Muslims wouldn’t attend a party where alcohol was being served. Perhaps I should have demanded the kosher meal?

When in the USA , do as the Muslims SAY . What ever happened to the old sage “when in Rome” ? Oh and sorry for being politically incorrect. It is now called Estados Unidos , after all ,we have to bend to the will of the Latino crowd.

If the muslims are against abortion, then that just means there will be more of them running around.
commented 2015-10-28 02:08:19 -0400
On the bright side , Muslims are against abortion especially late term , so they may do the country some good, that is going to be one funny mix up for the apologist left when they outlaw abortion LMAO

This is a win for non -Muslims who work in transport and logistics.
If we can convince Muslims other well paying jobs like this go against the Koran, we can let other people of different cultures and religions who are genuinely qualified and willing have the jobs instead.

Obama sued for the Muslim truckers? Does anyone still belivie that Obama is a Christian?

The Judge in this case is obviously incompetent , they’re truck drivers and they hired on at Budweiser, what did they think they were going to do? Wash floors?

If a blind person with a guide dog uses Uber, will a muslim dog hating taxi driver still bitch about uber?

Maybe that can be uber’s new slogan. They are a dog and people transporting service, that will still pick up people without dogs.

9pm News, Toronto Muslim Taxi drivers are refusing to pick up passengers with Seeing Eye Dogs. How low can these morons go. The Quaran says that Dogs are dirty, it also says the same about Women. How long before these retarded Taxi Drivers stop picking up Women?

That Judge should be persecuted … no I do not mean prosecuted, I have a good vocabulary and a spell checker.

A Christian would not even have the same protection for refusing to tow a mobile abortion clinic … especially from an arab judge … or the Great Obamanation.

This whole world is going down the toilet fast. This political correctness is getting out of hand & the radicals are making the most of it & winning, Whether it’s to wear the niqab or refuse to deliver alcohol or refuse to handle pork in a restaurant, etc if they don’t get their way they engage our justice system made up mostly of left wing judges who side with them & away they go having won another one & richer than they’ve ever been leaving the business owner in debt. This is insane & terribly unfair. There was a time when these people were not visible in North America & we had peace, now they’re all slithering here to live & harass us, disrupt our culture & morals & Trudeau will bring thousands more to cause more problems. That’s really great you clueless liberals.

What would happen if a Canadian Christian Truck driver refused to deliver HALA FOODS?

I think aboriginals still outrank muslims on the political correctness hierarchy.

Can you imagine if muslims tried to apply sharia law to the aboriginals? It’s pretty obvious who would win. All the aboriginals would have to do is tell the muslims, This is my land!

Their bud Broke Hussen Obama came through for the muslims one more time.

Note, where Muslims are under discussion on the Lefty MSM, it’s “freedom OF religion”, when it’s Christians under discussion, it’s “freedom FROM religion”.
Anyone runs into this in their personal life, just remember, the SCC ruling that we have freedom FROM religion. Oh I know it was aimed at Christians and they will try to skirt around it, but you’re going to fight like hell, hold their feet to the fire, and get Ezra n Brian to do a petition for you and make Big Hay!!

Oh well, when the west separates from Canada there will be whiskey flowing and bacon sandwiches. If the local immams don’t like it they will have to pack up and move eastward I guess.

Muslims burn TVs in Brittan, and film themselves doing it. Can you say hypocrisy?

Things like this is what creates two-tiered citizenship (nor thins like Bill C24). One level for muslims and one level below that for non-muslims. This is here in Canada already and will become more common place very quickly. Islam blends mosque and state and this makes it very easy for Islam to play the victim in our society.

“Coming to Toronto soon, no doubt in that. Can you imagine? Oh my whatever will Wynne do? "

Already happened, Muslim barber vs lesbian. It was settled confidentially with arbitration. Has nothing to do with politicians.

What do you have to do to become a Muslim ? I am curious because I would like to ‘cash-in’ on this Gravy Train of Victim-hood . It is not that I really want to become a Muslim . It is just that I would really like Politicians to be deathly Afraid of me and the money is excellent. Hell , I will be able to sue almost anyone and I won’t even have to pay for a lawyer . I will just call up the local HRC and say that I was maltreated because I am Muslim. haha I will win Every time. So—- Is there a special ID card showing my face that says I am a Muslim? What do I have to do to become a— ‘Muslim of Convenience’ ?

This is more a condemnation of the misapplication of civil law – this was not about statute breach – simply a civil suit for damages – which the US court dropped like a stone. These truckers signed a contract and the terms of the contract are all that matters in a false dismissal suit or a discrimination case – as Ezra pointed out the truckers entered into contract with their employer without full disclosure of their conditions and gred to the conditions the employer set forth in the contract – which apply to all their employees equally -ther was no discrimination simply a breech of contract on the truckers side – how some judge parlayed this into anything else is a matter for judicial review of a complaint of mistrial by the defendants.
