Summary: A woman wearing a niqab, the face veil, went to a gas station and tried to pay $20 in cash. The gas station attendant threw the money back at her and told her to leave. The muslim woman got the police involved, and the gas attendant claimed she was just following company policy. The company is now saying it was a "misunderstanding" because company policy requests that people remove facial coverings like ski masks, in case of robbery.
Towards the beginning, a few people defended the Muslim woman, but soon it all fell apart and racism/Islamaphobia prevailed!
What a jerk. Why does he have to see her if she’s paying in cash?
The female attendant was just exercizing her constitutional right to protest a cult which defames and abuses women.
Case dismissed. LeFluer, go back to Arabia or Iran and take your damn Moon-God with you.
Why would police get involved?
Isn’t this a civil matter?
why would they ‘escort’ her to get service?
If a private company does not want to do business with a private individual what right do the police have to MAKE THEM?
I think this is a wag the dog story- a set up to get something into court... which will lead to FORCED acceptance of muzzies.
If a man cam into your establishment wearing a facemask in the old days you would assume they were tryig to rob you. If people CHOOSE TO cover their faces or wear bulky clothing while DISPENSING GASOLINE then forgive me if I dont want to server them- but that’s my choice- she could have EASILY gotten gas elsewhere- but they are trying to force an issue.
I would not doubt it if the gas station owners are in on it.
“Very painful, very painful — (I) felt really embarrassed”
...as painful as having your own family stone you to death under the guise of “honor”?
...as painful as jumping from a 80 story building to escape 1000 degree heat caused by your uncle Mohamed wacky piloting skills? Go Home to whatever “stan” you’re from!
"Muslim woman says gas station refused her service"
Good, now get the murdering ragheads out of the US.
I’m afraid this woman definitely has a case. The only time facial covering is a problem is if you are trying to do something that requires some form of ID or you are pointing a gun and asking for the contents of the register. She was doing neither.
I have no problem with making muslims uncomfortable living here any more than I would making communists, nazis or any other kind of subversive traitor uncomfortable living here.
They are a clear & present danger to our way of life and as soon as they succeed in using our civil liberties to gain what they want will yank them away & enslave us all.
IMOP the cop should have ticketed the Muslim for endangering the general public by driving wearing a costume which restricted her view of the road. Then he should have had her car towed for the same reason. Then he should have explained to her that, unlike her native hell hole, this is a free country .... including the freedom to leave if you don’t like it.
This is part of an agitation operation, and it's nationwide. Here in my area: Muslim protest at Tarrant County College, U.S. as Christian nation,
Similar stories can be found all over. It's a soft tyranny-- this victimization game, and unfortunately, their targets seem to rollover, comply. It's a variation of the race card play.
--- Freeper logic: there are lots of stories about discimination against Muslims, thus we can conclude that this is actually discrimination against me.
She should get a credit card; and use it at pump. Surely she has one. (Perhaps she was looking for an incident?)
Take off the mask, you freak! Every day isn’t Halloween.
As far as I’m concerned Muslims have zero right to be in this country. The believe in a subversive ideology, not a religion, and by default are here for unfriendly purposes. I wouldn’t let them in no more than I would have a ardent Soviet communist during the Cold War who claimed to be peaceful and non-violent.
Maybe the attendant thought she shouldn’t drive, because she is a terrorist...and they don’t have the right to drive in terrorist countries.
I understand that the company's policy that led to the refusal of service can cause some Muslims concern -- even to fear for their safety.. and I am compassionate to a fault.
I remember the time when Americans of Japanese origin faced similar threats and were relocated to remote areas for their own safety. (Mostly, but some who were suspected of helping Imperial Japan were held in camps.)
Some Muslims living here express great concern for their safety.. well we can do no less to protect them than we did to protect the Americans of Japanese origin -- and the sooner the better.
The company has a policy that has absolutely nothing to do with religion, go somewhere else.. but no! Some Muslims have other reasons -- Keep on yanking the junk yard dogs' chains, Muhammed. That's real smart.
--- Yes, you're actually seeing someone suggest that we set up internment camps for people of a certain religion. Surely this is the exception from Godwin.
I cannot fathom those who are so willing to extend our precious liberties to a group of people so dedicatd to our destruction.
In spite of the abundant evidence all over the world of how non-muslims fare under the influence of Islam.
Our how they treat each other, for that matter.
Another ill to thank the Kennedys for—opening up the country to the 3rd world muslims
It's hypocritical for them to claim religion when it comes to the veil but it's OK to drive. In Arab countries, women are forbidden to drive.
