Belatedly and well past time, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport Board voted to fine and penalize Muslim cab drivers who repeatedly refused passengers with seeing-eye dogs and alcohol.
But that’s not the end of it. Nope. Since we always have to bend over backward–actually forward–for Islam, there’s more accommodation for the intolerant Muslim cabbies.
Last week, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport held a special job fair, just for Muslim cab drivers “whose occupational duties conflict with their religious beliefs.” 10 companies operating in the airport were there hiring, and about 25 drivers attended.
USA Today “Airport Check-in” columnist Roger Yu calls the job fair, “a serving of Minnesota niceness.” No, what it really is, is a serving of Minnesota Dhimmitude.
Maybe they should have a job fair for flying imams and Gitmo detainees, too, while they’re at it.
