British worker fired for insulting bin Laden
Colin Rose, 53, is appealing to an employment tribunal in Norwich, England, to get his job back, because he was fired for allegedly insulting terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden two months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, reports the London Telegraph.
Officials at Blundeston Prison in Lowestoft, England, told Rose he had to go because, although he was unaware of it, three Muslims visiting the prison at the time might have heard his remarks about the al-Qaida leader, the paper said.
A six-month investigation that led to his dismissal never established whether the visitors heard the comment.
Good grief. We thought the U.S. had the market cornered on political correctness but now it looks like England has gone just as insane. What is this pussyfooting around Muslims really about? It’s about FEAR, folks. F-E-A-R, fear. The world is really scared of Islam, and that’s exactly what Muslims want.
