Walmart Employee Fired for Using First Amendment Rights --
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.

From the Buffalo News:

A Facebook rant about Muslims by an employee of a Walmart store in Hamburg has prompted the retail giant to fire the man.

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?

I especially enjoyed this comment on the post:

Carlos Alfredo Veloso Turner

--Hey rag head, I came to America as a child and was told, "You are in America, be American. No more Spanish and speak English. My mom waited 7 years and she had to learn English and the civics for citizenship. Now you guys come along whining and crying about being picked on. Yes, when I am behind your women, I make comments about revealing their pig faces. Only once was I asked to leave, but I said after the pig faced women get out. YES, I was picking on your women. And it was fun. Now do you want to blow each other, oops hahaha I forgot Do you want to blow each other up? don't try to do that Shiria law on my, I don't play that games. This is my country, be American

I don't know what is going to happen to my country. Things are getting out of hand here and nothing is being done about it. It seems to me that companies and people are afraid. Afraid to stand up for the rights and freedoms our country stands by. What this man did was freedom of speech, period. But, Walmart is so damn afraid of backlash that they fired an employee for using that right?

On another note, a friend of mine was in the hospital recently. Her choice of meals was between halal and crap food. Yes, this hospital is in Dearborn.

I am totally disgusted by all of this.--

You cry when employees cannot be fired at will because of unions and government agencies.

You cry when employees are fired at will.

You just cry. All the time cry about things that do not affect you.

Cry cry cry. Cry f cking baby.

People seem to forget that Facebook is public and has gotten many people fired for their comments. Of course Walmart fired the guy, they want everyone to have an equal opportunity shopping experience aka cheap Chinese junk.

Now I'm not a big fan of Walmart, but I do shop there occasionally.

What you have posted sounds to me like a reason to shop there more often. Good for them!!!

Pretty pathetic actually.

What someone does on their private time and the private views they have is their business. Somebody should retaliate against the muzzies. Send a picture of Mohammed wrapped in dog feces or something like that.

You know, I do support unions, even government unions, to some degree and you are absolutely correct that they do prevent employers from running roughshod over employees.

Like any organization, however, the unions got corrupt. They started protecting the incompetent and getting in the way of productivity.

Unions in the spirit of the unions in Germany or Japan I am actually for. They are very tough when they seek wages and benefits, but actually do contribute to the cause and help the employer drum out the incompetent. They also protect the employer - thats why the Jewish bankers can't run roughshod over companies in those countries like they do here.

Germany is a good model for the rest of the world. High quality manufacturing, high pay, and bankers don't run roughshod through the economy. Germany got rid of their banker problem in the 1940's.

I'm a huge fan of Walmart on the hardlines side. They really do have the lowest prices everyday, for the most part. They also have the most humane return policies. They don't try to jab you.

I also like them because I look at them kind of like the Salvation Army. They seem to have a lot of misfits working there that they take and make something out of them.

Their groceries suck though and since that governs most of my shopping trips, I rarely go to Walmart unless it's a special trip.

I used to go to Meijer, but Kroger and Menards seem to be getting most of my traffic lately. I really like Menards a lot.

It was a photo taken in a Walmart, mocking Walmart shoppers.

This seems pretty relevant to his job. Unless you've never work someplace that has a policy on not presenting the business in a bad light, I don't think that this situation is going to be too hard to understand the reasoning behind.

If you don't mind, I would love to hear more about your ideas on Japanese unions. What with their close ties to the Japanese socialist parties, especially in the Kanto are and the Kimigayo business with the teacher's unions, I have a hard time imagining many folks in the US being too warmly inclined towards them.

I hace yet to see a 7th century left handed shit picker work at Menards and I have been to stores in their original region. I can just hear the big black woman at the store near Findlay telling one of those burlap wrapped terrorist to " take that damn bed sheet off so I can varifies yo ID or you can just get the f u q outs the store now."

Re-reference Matthew 7:6 wherein Jesus Himself refers to those like you as "dogs" and "swine."

Jesus had no problem calling things as they are.

@Spook - you are correct about that. Menar's is very "midwestern" and I really like that about them. I have yet to see any cashiers dressed to look like human bowling pins working there.

Great point. Now let's see you apply it to whites who weren't alive at the time of slavery or Jim Crow laws.
