Iím in L.A. and there is a Sharia Law problem...Many are Boycotting

The swanky Beverly Hills Hotel which is owned by The Brunei Investment Agency..Yep. thats right by a Country which supports Sharia Law...


So Sharia Laws have now officially reared itís ugly head in Los Angeles..and Iím glad to say being met with tons of push back social and political groups, causing all sorts of economic stress on the establishment. My good friend works there and says there has been almost no work for months..
Which is not good.. But...

My question is??? Where The Fuck is Michelle Bachman, Steve King, Louie (the goat) Ghomert, and all the masses of Right Wing nuts, who claim Obama is bringing Sharia Law to America?

Not even a word out of Ted Nugentís disgusting mouth nor Fox News hasnít even sent Steve Doofus out there.. When Good Old American Corporate Interests' think its o.k., I guess Sharia Law becomes very acceptable..

1. Their owning a hotel does not bring Sharia law to America

They have to obey US and California laws there.

6. The right wing is all for capitalism

If you have the money and the seller wants to sell something to you - that's all it takes.

5. No, and if Hitler had bought a hotel here it wouldn't have brought his dictatorship here.

But that doesn't mean it should be allowed.

7. I stayed at that hotel a couple of decades ago.

I was attending a conference at the nearby and very swanky Hilton.

I really don't get the "cachet" of the place. I know they have "bungalows" that are supposed to be the "ne plus ultra" of Hollywood extravagance, but that is not evidenced at all by their regular rooms. The bar is dank and small as well.

11. Just curious, do they serve alcohol at the bar?

 

If there's a restaurant, does it serve any dishes that are prohibited to devout Muslims?

Regardless of the answers to these questions, they're not a basis for prohibiting the foreign ownership.

As a place of public accommodation, the hotel is subject to the Civil Rights Act. I'm rooting for the owners to announce that women can't stay at the hotel unless accompanied by their father or husband. Then the Hobby Lobby majority on the Supreme Court will face a choice to give them fits: Rule in favor of a Sharia-based exception to a statute that non-Muslims must obey, or rule in favor of women making an antidiscrimination claim.
