TYSON ISLAMIC FOODS, INC., REPLACES AMERICAN HOLIDAY TO APPEASE MUSLIM WORKERS; PRAYER ROOMS ADDED AT PLANT
Tyson Foods has decided to remove a traditional American holiday, Labor Day, and replace it with a Muslim holiday. WorldNetDaily reports:
"To the Shelbyville Times-Gazette, Gary Mickelson, Tyson's media chief, said there is no new holiday, but at the union's request the company agreed to discontinue the Labor Day holiday and implement Eid al-Fitr."

This move by Tyson Foods to replace a traditional American holiday with a Muslim holiday is nothing short of dangerous. We've taken another step towards the Islamification of America. How's the water temperature, Froggy?
Will the MSM be asking Obama and McCain for comment? Don't hold your breath. For now, I refer you to Debbie Schlussel's post:
"Well, folks, here it is--the beginning (or maybe the middle) of the end of America as we know it. Tyson Foods is now ending employees' paid day off for Labor Day and, instead, giving 'em the paid day off for the Muslim festival, Eid Al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan. It is the most important holiday in Islam."

Now, before I continue calling my local grocers, I'd just like to mention that Tyson Foods are sold at ALL grocery stores. Just sayin'.
