September 11, 2001 sure turned America into a great place to be Muslim. The latest outrage:
A federal jury awarded $20,000 in compensatory damages Wednesday to a Tulsa woman who was not hired to work at a local Abercrombie Kids store because she wears a headscarf, but jurors opted not to award her any punitive damages.
Good thing this happened in relatively sane Tulsa. In San Francisco, she might have walked off with $millions.
The payoff was for “emotional distress.” Every time I read about the leftist screwballs who run our legal system looting another business on behalf of some parasite I get a new ulcer, but I’m not a Muslim, so no one pays me to be emotionally distressed.
The lucky winner had no worries about legal fees; your tax dollar took care of that.
U.S. District Judge Gregory Frizzell turned down the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s request for an injunction against the company.
Still, Samantha Elauf, 20, said she was “very excited” by the outcome and that she is glad she made her situation public.
The EEOC sued Abercrombie & Fitch on Elauf’s behalf in September 2009, alleging that the company practiced religious discrimination when it chose not to hire her to work at an Abercrombie Kids store at Woodland Hills Mall in June 2008.
She had worn a hijab — or religiously mandated headscarf — to her job interview.
Advice for the unemployed: always wear a hijab to job interviews. If you don’t get hired, so much the better — then you get money for nothing. For guys this is likely to be even more lucrative, since a cross-dressing Muslim would be double-esteemed by our liberal rulers, and therefore would qualify for a double-sized shakedown.
Abercrombie & Fitch is a private company with every right to hire or not hire whomever it pleases in a free country, and to require whatever “Look Policy” it deems suitable. Too bad this isn’t a free country anymore.
Samantha Elauf, happy beneficiary of dhimmi jackpot justice.
