A little background on this:


Interesting, but nothing there justifies racial slurs or threats and unless they can prove that he's paying immigrants a dollar a week the cheap labour argument doesn't hold much water. Nor does the argument that he is somehow destroying America by hiring immigrants.

I would bet good money that the same people complaining a successful immigrant is trying to help out other immigrants would not bat an eyelash at being a shoe in for a job at a company that a friend of their dad's owns.


You realize that Muslim isn't a race it's a religion so it's not a racial slur.

I'm curious if he is paying them all min wage. What is a shoe in?

"WE REFUSE TO LET THE REFUGEES IN! THEY WON'T DO ANY WORK!"

"SOMEONE GAVE JOBS TO REFUGEES?! BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!"

I will never understand these anti-refugee people.

I know Muslim is not a race and but technicalities don't make any of this better.

"Someone or something that will win easily or is certain to win"

I was making the point that no one complaining would say a word if they were the ones benefiting.

I have no issue with Muslim refugees until they refuse to abandon third-world values and instead bring them into America.

The main issue with Muslim refugees is that third-world values don't belong in first-world countries. If you want to move into a country, you have to accept the societal norms of said country.

There is no such thing as "third world values" as the term, in the modern sense, is economic in nature. Even then the term really has no cohesive definition.

Syria for example, ( who I assume you are trying to imply ) is not a third world country by historical or modern definition.

I stand corrected about third world values, but the issue still stands that Syria is under a rape crisis and many of those problem citizens come to America and bring the problem with them.

I think this is one of those few instances where "teach men not to rape" is a valid response to potential rapists from Syria.

Neither does calling people racists when they are not being racist. It's just a red herring.

Well duh thats typically how the world works.

Given the topic, I don't need a red herring. Like I said, arguing about a technicality doesn't make the assholes in this story any less assholes.

I think you're sort of missing the point I was making there.

Unfortunately, mass rape goes hand and hand with war torn countries.

That is not however a "value" of Syria. Its being used as a tool of control and torture in Syria against women *and* men. The vast majority committed by Assad's soldiers and government militia. ( But you should totes make nice with Russia and Assad or something. -.- )
