Fort Morgan, CO: Nearly 200 Somali workers fired at Cargill meatpacking plant
Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 1, 2016
Oh boy, I get to use that wonderful German word – schadenfreude!
I first wrote about “WELCOMING” Ft. Morgan in 2008, go here to see many pages of posts on how the town opened its arms to Somalis being brought there through a refugee contractor for employment at Cargill Meat Solutions.
Cargill, by seeking out immigrant labor (including cheap Somali refugee labor), is one of the corporations directly responsible for destroying the cultural cohesiveness of your towns and cities often followed by the introduction of shariah law. Demanding special treatment in the workplace for Islamic prayer is bringing shariah law to your community!
(Lutheran Social Services of Rocky Mountains is largely responsible along with Cargill. That is the same contractor that wants to seed Wyoming with Somalis).
See also, ‘Meatpackers changing small town America,’ here.
The Denver Post tells us the seeding of Ft. Morgan began in 2005.
Don’t miss one of my favorite posts of all time. I reported on the Editor of the Ft. Morgan Times calling me out (I don’t know who else he could have meant at the time).
I’ve been waiting since 2008 to use this!
Of course, if it were up to some people, Somali refugees would not have a chance to resettle anywhere in the U.S. There is even a Web site devoted to teaching Americans how to chase refugees of various sorts out of town.
This is a kind of insanity, since everyone except Native Americans are immigrants. Unfortunately, it shows the dark, ugly underside of our great country.
Now, here is the news yesterday from Reuters. Will there now be 200 unemployed Somalis hanging around Ft. Morgan?
Nearly 200 workers, mostly Somali immigrants, have been fired from a meat-packing plant in Colorado after staging a walkout to protest what they said were insufficient prayer accommodations, the company and Islamic advocacy groups said on Thursday.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said the workers were treated in a “discriminatory manner” by managers at the Cargill Meat Solutions [CARGIL.UL] facility in Fort Morgan, about 75 miles northeast of Denver.
I’m not shedding any tears for Cargill, but I am for America!
Continue reading here and see that the ‘Somali Jesse Jackson’ (Omar Jamal) has inserted himself into the controversy. I bet we have nearly 100 posts on Jamal who entered the US illegally more than a decade ago and was never deported!
Editor: This will be cross-posted at my new blog ‘American Resistance 2016’ because it makes a major point the we are covering there.
