Don’t Bring Home the Bacon: Shariah Cashiers @ TARGET

By Debbie Schlussel
I’ve already written about Target’s preferred religion. Hint: It’s the religion that claims to embody “peace.” Now Target is even more complaint with strict Islamic law (Shariah) to your detriment.
So, you’re hungry on the way home from work or have just picked up your hungry kids from school. You decide during your stop at Target to buy a frozen pepperoni pizza for yourself and your kids for dinner. You wait in a long check-out line at the busy Target (it’s right after school and work and prime shopping time). But when you finally get to the cashier, she won’t ring you up. Why? Well, hey, pepperoni has ham in it. And that’s forbidden under Islamic law. And the cashier, a Muslim, refuses to even touch the completely sealed, packaged frozen pizza.

That’s what’s happening now at Target. And Target is sanctioning this absurd behavior for Muslim cashiers and employees. I suggest you boycott Target, or it will get worse. Today, they’ll refuse you because of a food item that contains pig ingredients. Tomorrow, you’ll be refused for dressing immodestly, if you are a woman (because your hair is uncovered).
Sound farfetched? Well, it’s coming real soon. Yesterday, you might have thought it farfetched that you’d be refused a ring-up due to products which include pig ingredients.
I hope Target isn’t planning on having any of those Isaac Mizrahi or Mossimo shoes and boots made from the cheaper pig-suede. Or that, too, will be a problem for the Target cashiers. In fact, some Mizrahi winter clothes are made of pigskin. Perhaps Target can have shariah-designated lanes with a crescent above them. After all, we need to cater to the “Religion of Peace” at the cost of doing business with the rest of America’s customers.
For the record, keeping kosher, I do not eat products from a pig. And the dietary laws of religious Jews are far stricter than halal diets for Muslims. But if I had this absurd restriction of not being allowed to touch a package that contained tiny elements of pork inside it (and I don’t have that problem), I wouldn’t take the job as a cashier at Target.
Target should not be bend for shariah. Shariah should bend for America. And since Target doesn’t get that, it’s time to send Target a message it will get: DON’T SHOP THERE.
Gee, what’s next? Will Target get rid of its dog mascot? After all, the same Muslims in Minneapolis that won’t touch the sealed pizza package, despise dogs as “unIslamic” and “unclean.”
Thanks to reader Bill for the tip.

Earth to employers in America: STOP HIRING THEM!

Prickzilla on March 13, 2007 at 11:53 pm

You know Debbie, once we get done boycotting every business you don’t like and every entertainer who said something that offended you, we’ll pretty much be left with centuries old books to read as a sole source of amusement. Before running our looms to make our own clothes that we can’t buy in all the businesses you don’t like who either directly, or through a network of up-chain suppliers, may have at one time accidentally bought something from a terrorist or illegal alien, and/or catered to a Muslim, we’ll have to till the fields all day where we grow our own foods for the same reasons.
Wal-Mart hires illegals. Target caters to Muslims. I get it. But I will not shop someplace that can’t get me the kind of price breaks those places do.
And I also don’t care what some actor may have done over a decade ago.
Have fun boycotting. The rest of us with lower blood pressure will go on living our lives.

Shut up david. Your in the minority of people on those things you said.
Anyway, I have never…eeeeeever…visited target before. I was gonna do it this month, but now becuase of this….forget it. I’m not gonna buy anything from there…so some Shariah piece of shit can ignore me becuase the food has a trace of pig in it. Hmm…if I eat well cooked chitlings in a target, will I get attacked by the “offeeeended” muslim?
Hey david…if you walked in a line with bacon, and waved it accidentally in a Shariah’s face, you’d be attacked. So think about that before spitting out more of your drivel.

Earth to David Svendsen, I bet the innocent passengers on United Airlines flight 175, United Airlines flight 11, United Airlines flight 93 and American Airlines flight 77 + all the people who died in the World Trade Center had real low blood pressure on Sept. 11 2001. You say you get it. Do you know how you sound? You are a Dhimmi. There are other brick and mortar stores whose low prices are just as competitive as Walmart or Target. There are a multitude of other considerations in a commercial transaction besides “price”. Continue “living your life” David. Remember this, “The love of money is the root of all evil”. Timothy 6:10

Unfortunatly there are too many people who don’t give a damn, give them a bargain or that it is more convenient to go to a store they will go there regardless they just care about themselves. They usually vote Democrat anyways, because they are the same people who are uninformed and repeat what other people say. Show them Dick Chaney’s picture and they will say they don’t know who he is.

StuLongIsland on March 14, 2007 at 6:52 am

David, You missed the point 100%. This country is founded on unalienable rights, not Islamic law. If some cashier refused to check-out merchandise offered for sale in that store, they would see my blood pressure in action until they did. Then it would be the store manager next and finally the company CEO. Keep the news flowing, Miss Debbie. And G-d bless America, land of freedom and liberty.

Happiness Pursuer on March 14, 2007 at 7:54 am

Thanks for the heads-up Debbie…Target just lost my business!
Ignor David “The Moron” Svendsen.He’s obviously clueless & most likely a Dhimmi Dem-o-RAT.

billybob on March 14, 2007 at 8:56 am

“Shut up david. Your in the minority of people on those things you said.”
Agree with David or not, if we’re talking about people in this country, this statement is most definitely false. If we’re talking about people who read this website, this statement is still probably false.
I happen to agree with David here. Sorry, but I’m not going to inconvenience myself like this because of some story I heard on the internet. The day the Target I go to starts refusing me service I’ll stop going there, but some guy somewhere getting refused service isn’t going to me make spend more money at a store I prefer less to Target.

islam = a backward, unyielding death cult that requires its followers to reject civilization.
muzlums = sharp-toothed, blood-thirsty, cave-dwelling murder-monkeys who want to drag the rest of civilization into a living Hell.
I’m putting Target on my ever-growing boycott list.

Retail store employees have a basic commercial obligation to sell the store’s inventory. This includes Pharmacists who might have a moral objection to selling birth control pills.
If an employee has a moral dilemma with the store’s commercial offerings, it is the employee’s responsibility to remedy the situation; not the store’s and certainly not the customer.
It’s a simple matter of commerce and there’s no reason to bend over backwards to accomodate this kind of employee need.

There is NO Santa Claus on March 14, 2007 at 10:09 am

Debbie, how do you feel about pharmacists refusing to dispense birth control devices because they believe they are abortifacients?

titletown on March 14, 2007 at 10:20 am

To David Svendson:
I think you have a point. If we boycotted everyone and every commercial/industrial entity that ever did a bad thing, I think we’d all be living in the stone age. Having said that, I can also tell you this: if I find myself held up at a checkout counter line longer than I have to because a Muslim cashier isn’t scanning the pork, you can bet your sweet bippy I’m going to shop somewhere else!
Employees have a commercial contract to sell their employer’s inventory. If they have a religious or moral dilemma, they must either rationalize it and honor their contract or seek employment in a job that meets their personal needs. It is not the store’s responsibility to resolve the religious/moral dilemma of an employee when it comes to selling the store’s products. It is certainly not the customer’s responsibility to resolve the employee’s dilemma by accepting unexpected inconvenience.
I would also add that I think Debbie has found another excellent example of how many “everyday Muslims” in “everyday jobs” are ill-prepared to cope with America’s pluralistic society.

A boycott is ineffective unless the corporate headquarters knows exactly why you are boycotting their corporation. Write some letters, call some customer service hotlines.

radishthegreat on March 14, 2007 at 11:51 am

PLEASE GO TO TARGET —BUY ANY PRODUCT THAT CONTAINS PORK…..:”MISTAKENLY” OPEN IT WHILE EXAMINING THE PRODUCT AT THE CHECKOUT……IF THE PORK “MISTAKENLY” TOUCHES THE CHECKOUT PERSON…WELL, HEY, I GUESS THEY ARE UNCLEAN AND CAN’T GO TO HEAVEN…..
I’M GOING TO TARGET RIGHT NOW TO BUY BACON…

DDB on March 14, 2007 at 11:58 am

Gee, DDB, what a great idea! While you’re at it, sneak some pork products into your Jewish friends’ meals. Tell ‘em it’s chicken! Hahahahaha! Then, sneak some meat into a Catholic’s meal on a Friday during Lent! The joke’s on them!
Grow up.

titletown on March 14, 2007 at 12:46 pm

Jeeze…what a put down for Target. I love shopping there or I did untill now. Even though I don’t buy pork, I know what its like to have someone shoving his/her religious principles down your throat. Its unconstitutional and these devout islamists should not get away with it. America was (Thank G-d) not founded on the Shariah Laws. Hence, freedom of religion. Nonetheless, I will not ceaze shopping there because of this insanity.

Jew Chick on March 14, 2007 at 2:38 pm

CALL ME BUTTERFINGERS! I WENT TO TARGET AND “SOMEHOW(!)” ENDED UP IN A LINE WITH A BURQUA-CLAD CASHIER….AND I WAS BUYING 2 BAGS OF PORK RINDS! WELL…WHEN SHE EXPRESSED A DOUBT ABOUT SCANNING THEM, I “EXAMINED” THE BAGS…WHICH “MISTAKENLY” OPENED, SENDING A STREAM OF RINDS ONTO BURKA AND INTO VEIL…QUITE A SIGHT! THE SQUEALS OF DISGUST AND FEAR (I BELIEVE IN LEBANESE) WERE OUT OF THIS WORLD….
TOMORROW I SHALL RETURN TO BUY THE PICKLED PIG’S FEET…I DON’T KNOW, BUT THE LIDS ON THOSE JARS MIGHT NOT BE PUT ON TOO TIGHT. MIGHT NEED TO “EXAMINE” THEM CLOSELY AT CHECKOUT, IF YA’ KNOW WHAT I MEAN….DETAILS TO FOLLOW!

DDB on March 14, 2007 at 4:47 pm

DDB, you are a liar. No one is buying your sick fantasies. Let’s see . . . where is this alleged Target? The cashier had on a burqua, you say? Well, that should be easy to prove. There can’t be THAT many burqua-clad cashiers working at Target. Oh, and she expressed a doubt, hmm? That’s odd – why didn’t she just call her co-worker over, as per store policy? Gee, something just doesn’t seem to add up here . . .

titletown on March 14, 2007 at 5:08 pm

Two things about the comments in this thread.
1) If a store manager is willing to bend over to please islam, don’t shop there. But that doesn’t mean every store in the company has the same policy. When it becomes a known fact that Target corporate has made this their policy, that’s when you boycott the chain. Let’s see how this developes before we jump down Target’s throat. Give it a couple weeks and keep your eyes open for more news stories about this before you jump to a conclusion.
2) Concerning boycotts and people who are unwilling to inconvenience themselves by not going to the offending store; if you don’t stand for anything, what good are you? If you are so shallow and self centered that a little inconvenience is all it takes to get you to buckle and accept sharia in the US, then you are part of the problem. Your opinion is worthless, your actions are worthless, your complaints are worthless, your praises are worthless.

Stealthkix on March 14, 2007 at 5:47 pm

“Concerning boycotts and people who are unwilling to inconvenience themselves by not going to the offending store; if you don’t stand for anything, what good are you?”
I do stand for something. I am strongly anti-diamond because of how De Beers runs their business. I have boycotted stores upon finding out what sort of shady/evil charities they fund (including a good number of Detroit-area businesses with ties to Hezbollah/et al).
But boycott an entire chain of stores because there are Muslim cashiers here and there getting their non-Muslim cashiers to ring up pork products instead of them? Sorry, not a big enough deal to me.

Dan on March 14, 2007 at 6:54 pm

“Jeeze…what a put down for Target. I love shopping there or I did untill now. Even though I don’t buy pork, I know what its like to have someone shoving his/her religious principles down your throat. Its unconstitutional and these devout islamists should not get away with it.”
How is it unconstitutional for a private company to make allowances for its employees?

Dan on March 14, 2007 at 6:55 pm

“Employees have a commercial contract to sell their employer’s inventory. If they have a religious or moral dilemma, they must either rationalize it and honor their contract or seek employment in a job that meets their personal needs.”
Well… or they could find an employer who accommodates them, as these Muslim cashiers seem to have been able to do with Target.
I happen to agree with you completely that that’s the way businesses *should* operate. It’s why I never considered food service work in high school – so I wouldn’t have to handle non-kosher food. But I probably would have made an exception if I’d found a Target-like employer that doesn’t mind its employees not carrying out their full duties.

Dan on March 14, 2007 at 6:59 pm

Drink nothing but water even when dinning out and exercise at least 2-3 hours a day. ,

bzmcxnvl on June 3, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Too bad pork is not only forbidden for Muslims but for both Jews & Christians.

How many of you Christian hypocrites celebrate the pagan “Christian” holidays like Christmas & Easter? You go by that one week pretending to follow Christian Law, only to eat pork the rest of the year which is forbidden in the old Testament (Not the Qur’aan)

“And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.” Deuteronomy 14:8

If I was a God-fearing Christian I’d rather have Shariah banning Pork because that would still be more in line with my Christian ideology of Pork being forbidden by God in the Old Testament.

Ah, but I forgot, this is ‘Murica! Eating Bacon and nationalism is more important than GOD’s LAWS that’s why Christians only claim to believe in Jesus for nationalist reasons, not religious.
