FW: Tyson Foods eliminates Labor Day in favor of Muslim Holiday!

Tyson Foods eliminates Labor Day in favor of Muslim Holiday! 

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 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.

The true Snopes article is here: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/tyson.asp

Eid-il-Fitr was added to the holiday schedule for one plant at the request of the union and approved by 80% of the workers at the plant.

But, you know, democracy isn't valid if it comes up with results that wingnuts don't like.

I thought they were against giving Unions any benefits including those damn paid days off.?

Fascinating to watch them claim Labor Day as something good, anyway. The folks who forward me this anti-Muslim shit are always horrified when I forward them back the lyrics to L'Internationale every Labor Day.

Rightwing think tank junk sent out to *reliably* rile up the rubes and pit them against "the other" in order to distract from how badly we the people are being ripped off by the upper 1%.

While conservatives are *permitting* themselves to be "entertained" by junk like this, WHERE is their outrage about Wall ST CEOs getting million$$ in bonuses?? After all, it was Wall ST who engaged in a ton of scurilous practices that resulted in voter 401(k)'s drastically losing value.

WHERE is their outrage at the Bank CEOs, who are also collecting million$$$ in bonuses, whilst fleecing we the people on trumped up fees & charges, while also NOT providing ANY interest on the money we the people deposit in bank accounts???

Who the frick gives a shite about some Muslim holiday??

I mean: seriously? Your panties are in a bunch bc of that??

The elephant in the room is called the REPUBLICAN politicians, who are enabling the destruction of the middle and working classes (i.e., the lower 99%) to the sheer and utter delight of the upper 1% - who laugh at rubes who are so easily distracted by utter nonsense like this.

Geez! WAKE the EFF UP!!!!!!

You’re right you’ll fall for anything.

Funny how they're easily able to locate & report on some trifling nugget (ha ha) about a Tyson chicken plant worker holiday, but these RWFs never focus on CEO bonuses or how much the Hedgefund billionaires pay in annual income taxes (eg, only 10% to 15% on their income of billions per year).

You guys are spot on; great astute comments so far.

I get a kick out of these corporate concubines bemoaning a supposed slight of the labor day holiday; If they weren't trying to use this to bash non-christians, they wouldn't give a frog's fat ass about "labor day"; Being good free-market capitalists and all. To them, "labor" is just as a dirty word to them as "muslim" or "socialism". They have to support capital over labor because, you know, they too will be rich someday! The supply-side policies of plutocrats said so, if they just work a little harder...for a little less.

gruaud said...

Well anonymous wingnuts? We're all excited as fuck to hear your perspective on this.

< whispered aside >

Tell me, does it give you guys a visceral thrill to know that you're pushing each other's outrage-buttons?

Come on, you can tell me.

I won't tell the other moonbats, I promise.

"Evil to triumph"?

Where's the evil? I am bad at these dog-whistle things. No gaydar, either.

Wow, did they read the article.

It says the union asked to allow MUSLIMS to give up their Labor Day and use it for Eid-al-Fitr instead. That means if you're MUSLIM you can say "hey, I don't want to take Labor Day off, I'll be here working. But instead I'll take Eid-al-Fitr off instead."

If you're not Muslim you take Labor Day off and you don't get Eid-al-Fitr off.

Dear Last Anon:

Welcome to the whacky world of LYING brought to you by rightwing thinktanks. Most of these RWFs are bald-faced LIES, but many of us who post here have friends & relatives who enjoy getting these LIES. And then they reliably get their panties in a bunch because they enjoy believing these LIES and they also appear to enjoy the following things:

1. Being constantly Afraid of nearly everything
2. HATING the following groups of "others:" Muslims, Mexicans, African Americans, Poor People, Women, Democrats, Liberals, the so-called Liberal Media, Commies (not necessarily in that order)
3. LOVING War and bombing other nations into oblivion because it's the "American Way."
4. HATING Obama above all else just because Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean O'Hannity, Bill O'Reilly & Sarah Palin all say that Obama should be hated "just because" booga booga
5. Denying that they are racist and sexist even as they say/do/demonstrate totally racist and sexist comments/behavior
6. Enjoying the Southern Strategy

And so on... you'll get the picture if you hang around here long enough... or not even all that long, for that matter.

this is just a teeny tiny example of the LIES that are spewed out daily by rightwing thinktanks.

Why do they LIE like this? Because, with a certain percentage of the population, these LIES "work" with very predictable results.

Thanks for posting the refutation of this particular LIE. Feel free to do so again bc you'll have plenty of opportunities, believe me. Quite simply: there's no end to the LIES, sad to say.
