One of the many problems with America these days is that so many members of minorities insist on receiving privileged treatment above and beyond what everyone else gets. If they don’t get it, they claim discrimination and file a lawsuit. Sadly, Obama made over 300 judicial appointments and many of those liberal judges side with the minorities instead of basing their decisions on the rule of law. Consequently, normal everyday citizens are stripped of their constitutional rights and more minorities feel empowered to follow the example and demand privileged treatment or they will sue.
A classic example of this are members of the perverted and sinful LGBT community. They insist that everyone tolerate and accept their anti-God views and lifestyles, but they are among the most intolerant of others. They want respect but refuse to give respect. They believe they are free to say anything they want about others, but let one person tell them they are sinners or that their lifestyle is an abomination and they file a lawsuit. They demand to have their views accepted, but when they target a Christian business owner who stands for his or her faith, the LGBT individual or individuals sue for privileged treatment.
A growing number of black activists are doing the same thing, many inspired and prompted by America’s top black activist and racist hater, Al Sharpton. If a conservative tries to pass a law to prevent voter fraud, it’s suddenly turned into a racial issue and results in a lawsuit. Black Americans see nothing wrong or racial with a Black Entertainment Channel, Miss Black America pageant, Black Caucus, Black History Month and so on, but let a white person dare form anything exclusively for white Americans and it becomes a racist issue and results in a lawsuit.
What if some business has a policy that applies to everyone, but when it tries to enforce it on members of a minority, it results in a lawsuit, only this time, it’s Muslims yelling discrimination.
Restaurants need a certain number of customers per day and if too many customers decide to just sit and talk and linger on for hours, it hurts the business and profit of the restaurant, especially a busy one. That’s why the Urth Caffe in Laguna Beach, California has a policy for anyone eating at their popular outdoor patio tables, limiting them to 45-minutes. This allows a sufficient customer turnover in order for the restaurant to make enough money to stay in business. This policy applies to everyone, regardless of their color, dress, sex, etc., and the restaurant enforces it on a regular basis.
Many of the restaurant’s customer are Muslims, including women wearing hijabs and the restaurant has regularly enforced their 45-minute rule by politely asking them to move from the patio tables so other customers could sit and eat and they’ve never had problem.
However, a group of 7 Muslim women, dressed in their traditional hijabs, have filed a lawsuit against the café, claiming religious discrimination. On a busy Friday night, they sat at the outdoor patio tables and after 45 minutes, refused to leave when asked.
Now, the Muslim women have filed a discrimination lawsuit against the restaurant. But the table is being turned on the women, as the restaurant has obtained the legal help of the American Freedom Law Center who has filed counter-lawsuit against the women, charging them with being the aggressors and of trespassing for staying past the 45-minute rule.
David Yerushalmi, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel with the AFLC, comments about the lawsuit and counter-suit, saying:
“This lawsuit claiming religious discrimination is a fraud and a hoax on the courts and the media. It is nothing short of an abuse of process to extort public apologies and other accommodations from my client, Urth Caffe.”
“The Urth Caffe did not discriminate against the women who have filed this fraudulent lawsuit. The claim that these women were asked to leave the café because they were wearing hijabs is laughable. That night, as every Friday night, a large number of young people, including a majority of whom are Muslim and of Arab descent, make up the base of Urth Caffe’s customers. Not surprisingly, many of these customers are women wearing hijabs. None of these other Muslim women was asked to leave. The women who now claim victim status were not asked to leave, but only to abide by the café’s policy to give up their high-demand outside patio table after 45 minutes to allow other customers, including those wearing hijabs, to enjoy the experience.”
“This lawsuit is nothing short of an abuse of process. Several key facts demonstrate the contrived and abusive nature of the women’s claims. First, one of two owners who manage the Urth Caffe is herself a Muslim woman. Jilla Berkman, a co-owner of the Urth Caffe with her husband, was the one who actually authorized the call to the police after the women now claiming victim-status were loud and abusive to the Urth Caffe employees and refused to give up their table per the stated policy. Second, the lead plaintiff in the frivolous lawsuit is Sara Farsakh, a college-age activist for Palestinian causes who self-promotes her involvement in radical organizations, at least one of which calls for the destruction of Israel. Third, the organization behind the scenes organizing this fraudulent lawsuit is CAIR, or the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations.”
Note that CAIR has been linked to Islamic terrorists in the past and nothing more than a radical Islamic organization that has helped funnel a lot of money to radical terrorists. Robert Muise, Co-Founder and Senior Counsel for AFLC commented about CAIR, saying:
“CAIR, currently named a terrorist organization by the UAE, was previously named as an unindicted co-conspirator and Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the successful prosecution of a terrorist funding cell organized around one of the largest Muslim charities, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF). HLF raised funds for violent jihad on behalf of Hamas, and top CAIR officials were part of the conspiracy.”
“It is not surprising that the FBI has publicly terminated its outreach activities with CAIR. Moreover, this fraudulent lawsuit is what the Muslim Brotherhood itself describes as ‘civilization jihad.’ In other words, this lawsuit is being waged to use our anti-discrimination laws not for equal protection, but to attain special protection and rights for sharia-adherent Muslims who reject America and the Judeo-Christian values it stands for.”
If minorities want to be accepted by the general public, filing lawsuits every time they don’t’ get preferential treatment is not the way to go about it. It only serves to make the general public more resistant to them and to look at them as ingrates, usurpers, and unwanted. Acting like the rules that apply to everyone else don’t apply to you is the wrong way to gain friends or acceptance. Yet, after 8-years of Obamanism, too many members of minorities feel entitled to special treatment and will sue to get it.
