Civil Rights for Americans

Sunday, September 24, 2006

Man, my head almost exploded reading USA Today's "Airport Check-in: Fare refusals in Minnesota":
Minneapolis-St. Paul is concerned that its taxi service is deteriorating. Citing their religious beliefs, some Muslim taxi drivers from Somalia are refusing to transport customers carrying or suspected of carrying alcohol. It started with one driver a few years ago, but the average number of fare refusals has grown to about three a day, says airport spokesman Patrick Hogan. "Travelers often feel surprised and insulted," he says. "Sometimes, several drivers in a row refuse carriage."
Fire them as cabbies. Deport them if not citizens. Yank the cab owner's hack license on the second violation. Put them in the back of the plane near the toilets on the way back to freaking Somalia.

But the People's Republic Of Minnesota is alive and well:
The airport is expected to propose today that drivers who wish to avoid alcohol-toting passengers change the light on their car roofs, possibly to a different color.
Hey, I've got an idea, if they don't want to take a single woman travelling without her chadoor and her husband/brother, they can have one light. Another if they'd rather not have a jew in the car (I suggest a red Star of David with a line through it!). And another if they'd prefer not to have a 'person of color' in the car.

No wait, that last is a bit obviously a civil right violation and might get the ACLU started.

We have *got* to stop giving in to this crazy Muslim intolerance. If they don't like civil American society, they should go home. Or fold into self sufficient and (largely) inconsequential communities like the Amish.

As they say in the Princess Bride: Boo on you. Boo. Boo.
