A Facebook rant about Muslims by an employee of a Walmart store in Hamburg has prompted the retail giant to fire the man.
Disgusting: CAIR Forces WalMart To Fire Employee For Joking About Muslims On Facebook
How many “Christian Organizations” have gotten anyone fired for the rampant and incessant criticism of Christianity everywhere? And yet somehow CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, got WalMart to fire an employee for making a simple joke about Muslims on Facebook.
The derogatory posting on Friday morning was brought to the attention of Wal-Mart Stores executives by a member of the local Muslim community and by a national Muslim advocacy organization.The assistant manager at the Walmart on Southwestern Boulevard in Hamburg posted a photograph from behind of two Muslim women dressed in full cover and the written comments: “Halloween came early this year … do they really have to … dress like that … your in my country … get that … off!!!!!.”
The employee was identified as Terry Earsing by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a national civil liberties organization that advocates on behalf of Muslims and had urged “appropriate disciplinary action” in the matter.
Absolutely ridiculous. I can almost see WalMart censuring the employee (even that would be too much) but to fire him is an intolerable lapse of judgement on their part.
Is this how Americans react now to pressure from groups that are perennially offended by jokes?
