: American company eliminates Labor Day
Tyson Foods eliminates Labor Day in favor of Muslim Holiday!
Tyson Foods eliminates Labor Day in favor of Muslim Holiday! I think that you will find this very
interesting. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you take over America ? One American at a time. Tyson chicken anyone?? None for me thanks!!!! We all need to heed this message!!!!!
TYSON FOODS ELIMINATES LABOR DAY IN FAVOR OF MUSLIM HOLIDAY
Tyson Food in Shelbyville , Tennessee has eliminated Labor Day as a paid holiday in favor of the last day of Ramadan because they have 700 Muslim employees. The fact that they have almost that many non-Muslim employees is beside the point apparently!
I will no longer purchase any Tyson products. It's just one more little chunk of America that's been bitten off. If you wish to join me, then let your e-mail friends know this. If we don't stand up for something we will fall for anything. All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
This was verified:
I did not believe even Snopes, so I checked it out myself:
WINGERT -- LABOR DAY IS A HOLY DAY AMONGST AMERICANS!!! It represents our undying faith that being lazy is completely OK, and that we should all be paid for not doing anything.
Now that one company decided to respect more than 50% of its employees by making the day represent a holy day of theirs is A SLAP IN THE FACE TO ALL LAZY AMERICANS EVERYWHERE!!
DAMMIT!! I LOVE LABOR DAY SO MUCH!!!
I get the feeling that if this had been a Christian holiday we wouldn't be having this discussion.
I thought you'd be happy that the socialist, union lovin' pinko "Labor" Day was gone.
I do have a problem with this. I don't see a problem with offering one or the other to an employee; or even adding a holiday. But this means non Muslims can't participate in festivities on a traditional holiday for their culture. Sounds unfair to me.
Actually...Snopes says it is a mixture of true and false information... Like most of what you reprint from your emails.
They gave their employees a choice...
That link you posted for Snopes is for a letter someone wrote incorrectly quoting it.
Thanks for clearing that up. Seems to me that the solution worked out at the one Tyson plant was reasonable. Oly's sources are primarily one-sided right wing ones. He should start reading the NY Times to broaden his outlook.
I live near the largest concentration of Muslims in the US, and most of the few problems are caused by right-wing anti-Muslim fear mongers, not by the Muslims most of whom are model citizens going about their daily occupations.
Ignorant right-wing hate groups are a much bigger threat to our democracy than a few misguided Muslims.
Oly has his own sources for info and seldom checks to see if they are indeed accurate before posting the links here. I always get a kick out what he posts because no matter many times he's proven wrong, he still keeps posting this stuff as if it's accurate. Obviously, credibility is not something he cares much for here on HP forums.
This from the man who brags about his beloved communist friends of the 50s and 1900s and how great they are.
Leave it to you to defend any enemy who hates this nation.
I LOVE LABOR DAY SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!
LABOR NEEDS ITS OWN DAY!!
Labor day needs its own day off.
Labor day works SO hard year after year... this year it needed a year off. It was fasting too much..
LABOR DAY!! I LOVE YOU!!! BEAR MY CHILDREN!!!
Communist friends?? I did once have an acquaintance who I found out later was a communist from Toronto.
Rabble Rabble Rabble....those evil Muslims...boogedy boogedya...there is only one definition for American Rabble Rabble...
McCarthy syndrome trying to drag society into the gutter again...
The snopes link doesn't relate to the Tyson claim at all.
So where is some actual proof for that claim?
Oh look, here is the real snopes link:
1) This all happened in 2008
2) The final agreement reinstated Labor day and gave a floating holiday for Muslims to use on their holy day.
Democracy in action. End of story.
Please, people, check the facts before pitching a rant. It took me all of 10 seconds to get the full story.
It's clear that he and people like him are not interested in getting down to the facts. They're interested in whipping up hysteria, and consider fact-checkers party-poopers.
This is how certain people operate. Provide "proof" of their statements hoping that just enough people are stupid enough to buy it without checking. Sadly, a significant number of people are willing to swallow anything that agrees with their deeply entrenched political ideology.
Reminds me of ludicrous "WARNING!" emails I get forwarded to me from, ahem!, older people, which even have the audacity to say "I checked this out on Snopes and it's true!" and then when I do check Snopes, I see that it's been thoroughly debunked.
I usually email back a link to the Snopes article.
This is old news. It happened in Shelbyville, Tn. in Aug. 08' Google tyson foods shelbyville tn ramadan
If the party included 72 virgins, nobody would be complaining...except maybe the virgins.
thats retarded! Those 72 virgin wont necesarily be women either lol.
THE AWESOME-IST HOLIDAY EVER!!!
Shame on you Evan. People are working hard and making great sacrifices to produce thoughtful opinions here on this matter which is so crucial to the future of our country. (Think of the children man!!)They don't deserve your mockery. If you have something positive to add to the conversation, please do so, otherwise maybe your time would be better spent re-reading Atlas Shrugged and meditating on the divine teachings of Rand.

OH, don't get too excited, Ron.
This is just another part of that, CHANGE, you-all THOUGHT you were going to get.
STUPID is, as STUPID does. There is only a very few of us with our EYE's open.
The United States Of America=The Joke Of The Centry.
What a shame.
If you were all like you, I'd be inclined to agree with you. Fortunately that's not so and there are enough sensible Americans around to leave you unchallenged in your role as joke of the centry(!).
Sorry, but, I understand that the truth hurts. I know becouse I am an Amarican and it hurts me.
Just keep up to date with all the comments about us and maybe you might get my point, or not...................
Frankly, I don't. You all are apparently against socialism and for religion but when somebody proposes doing away with a socialist holiday and replacing it with a religious holiday you are up in arms.
I quit eating anything they make after watching Food, Inc.
Labour day is dead anyways, we no longer have Labour Unions and we live under globalized corportate fascism. Workers are nothing but debt serfs; and I'm working this Labour Day anyways in a job that isn't in emergency services.
I would rather have Labour Day replaced by a Holiday that is actually celebrated in spirit, even if it's by a religion that isn't my own. Labour Day is no longer a holiday, today it represents the morgue that is working class people. I would go on to say it's a tragedy, now go shop this Labour Day thanks to the retail employees who work with no benefits or bargaining rights!
You are completely ignoring the fact that most of this is not true and it was solved to everyone's satisfaction. And it happened before Obama was president...
Never let the facts get in the way of a good rant.
GEE John, for the first time, I AGREE with you.
How did Obama get in the ISSUE.
Darn, if it is not Bush, Clinton, Ford, Carter, now it Obama.
Can't anybody stay on ISSUE.
UNINVITED WRITER, you did get one thing right.
I Ignor a lot.....................
Oh well back to force fed,genetically modified KFC I suppose
On a tangent...
