She's got a ticket to ride!

Reader comment on item: Islam Drives the Social and Legal Agenda in the West

I learned that Tasha Douglas, represented by the ACLU, had succeeded in getting the Grand Rapids, Michigan Rapid transit service adminstration to recind its own rule against people attempting to ride in veiled clothing. I'll let the letter speak for itself, but I urge anyone interested in preserving our collective security to write or call the transit authorities and inform them of your concern.

Greetings Mr. Peter Varga,

I recently learned that administrators of The Rapid have rescinded their rule against riders covering their face with headress and veils. I can't tell you how disappointed I am. Being a native US citizen I have to say this is inconsistent with our customs and governance as an open society. That rider's custom and insistence on wearing such a headress on The Rapid is a seciurty threat. In addition, it is a symbol, travesty, and insult to women's rights around the world. It is not a matter of racisim or denial of religous rights. I think your employee's got it dead right, last July, when they denied Tasha Douglas the right to wear it while she was riding the train.

In western european countries they are banning the wearing of such veiling of physical identity when being examined by doctors and in public. It also is a threat to our citizens as Islamic Fascist Homicide Bombers are known to not only be women, but also men impersonating women have also used such head dress and loose clothing to conceal their identies (so they can't be profiled as terrorists) in addition to bulky bomb belts. I am very interested in knowing, why Ms. Douglas's objections caused The Rapid to recind its own rules? Weren't the rules originally implemented with principled reason and due consideration?

I'm very sorry to see the Rapid administration cow so easily to this type of ACLU harrasment. Are you people just begging for a homicide bomber attack. It's already been demonstrated by Islamo Fascist that they consider mass transit an excellet target for terrorist attacks. Doesn't the welfare and safety of American Citizens riding The Rapid mean more to the tranist authorities than someone who insists on wearing mideval clothing styles that predominate and are popular with our Muslim extremist enemies?

I remind you, WE ARE AT WAR SIR!!! How many more "rockets," bombs, and deaths must our cities and people suffer before everyone understands and begins to react resolutely to that fact? You people have every right to refuse ridership to people like Tasha Douglas who are so insensitive to the concerns of American Citizens riding The Rapid. I think its all upside down. Instead of everyone running around trying to pascify the "outrage" of Ms. Douglas and her supporters, everyone should be pointing how inconsiderate, disruptive, insulting, and wrong her behavior is! Wake up Rapid! Before a bomb blows you off your chairs!! Its that simple!

What the Rapid authorities fail to recognize, in my opinion, is this woman's violation of the rules of ridership are just a series of strategic probes and assaults orchestrated by Islamic Jihadists positioned here in the USA. I urge you to look more deeply into the recent news reports of the six Muslim Imams disrupting domestic airline flights out of Minnesota with their, suspicious behavior and dress. They also want the airline industry to cow to their "religon" and give them special privileges and concessions. I would point out that they are also being represented by an ACLU collaborator CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations). They don't deserve anything more than any other passanger!!!

If any of you were to study Islamic history, you would know that the veiled woman and people like her and the Imams are part of a worldwide radical Islamic ideology that imposes their customs and self proclaimed superiority (Islamic Republic) on the cultures they invade, militarily, geographically, culturally, economically, religously, with terrorism, and any other way they can on a daliy basis. Islamic Fascists are using our juciciary, legal sophistries, and our freedoms of religion, speech, and civil rights to camoflage and advance their radical, violent, and extremist agenda against the U.S.A.

Islamo Fascist swant to lull us all into a state of domestic sleep of acceptance, and render us unawares of their real intent! They want to desensitize us to rising Jihadist Muslim Terrorist populations residing in our own communities. They want to make it routine for them to walk among us, as did the 9/11 attackers, so we don't perceive any threat or sense anything unusual. That is, until they decide to start chopping off our heads!! Wake up!!! The writing is on the wall! Support AMERICA, AMERICANS, and the AMERICAN WAY. DO NOT GIVE IN TO THE ACLU OR MUSLIM EXTREMISTS TRYING TO INTIMIDATE AMERICANS. ITS OUR CIVIL DUTY TO DO EVERY THING WE CAN TO PREVENT DOMESTIC ATTACKS ON OUR PEOPLE AND MASS TRANSIT ASSETS.

Thank you for your time Sir. In closing, I would sincerly invite you to respond to my plea for you to courageously reinstate the original rule and aggressively stand against ACLU pressure. Don't let the terror apologists, secular progressives, and liberal press intmidate, embarass, and shame you with their allegations of racisim, and discrimination against religious rights.

P.S.

I just watched a video news report, while writing you this letter, of a speech by Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the House of Representatives state, and I am paraphrasing, "…if we are at war, [and we are] those six Imams should have been arrested for impersonating a terrorist, jailed, and tried in a court of law. While, the employees of U.S. Airways should be invited to the White House and recognized for their examplery service…" I hope you will take a lesson from those brave pilots and crew of U.S. Airways. Incidentally, I also wrote U.S. Airways and praised them for their excellent judgment and for making passenger safety their top priority.
