Muslim holiday at Tyson Plant: Let the pandering continue

Once again, we in the West bow to the wishes of Islam.

I came across this story a few days ago, as Tyson foods in Shelbyville, Tennessee has decided to drop Labor Day in favor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr:
"Workers at Tyson Foods' poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day, but will instead take the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr in the fall."
It looks like liberal pansies, this time in the form of union workers, have demonstrated their Dhimmitude once again.

Let's get one thing straight: this is the United States of America, a country with its own traditions, its own culture, its own holidays. The appeasers in this country need to realize that immigrants should adhere to our way of life, whether it's learning English, working hard, and generally assimilating into society.

It's generally a well-known fact that in Muslim countries for example, minorities and non-Muslims are treated as second-class citizen AT BEST. Yet, when Muslims, for example, emigrate to our country, they demand that the good citizens of the United States bow to their religious sensibilities, despite the lack of reciprocity in their native country.

Let's eliminate the subject of Christianity from this debate. I've heard arguments that because our country is steeped in Judeo-Christian principles, we are a Christian nation. While the former is true, the latter is not. One of the attractive qualities of our country is that we are free to worship as we please, without fear of oppression or reprisal. What is slowly occurring is the infiltration of Islam into our society.

Thanks to the Democrats, we have allowed ourselves, in the name of Political Correctness and Multiculturalism, to be emasculated and submissive to the wishes of people like Ibrahim Hooper, who stated the following:
"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."
It's no secret that the intended goal of Islamic fundamentalism is to create a pan-global caliphate, with those of those who oppose their faith as their faithful servants. In Shelbyville, among others, it looks like that is already happening.
