Fear that graffiti might be terror threat at Tyson’s Food in Shelbyville, TN

Update January 2nd, 2011: Tysons needs to come clean with the whole story, here.

Update December 30th: Tysons: move along, nothing to see, here.

Update December 28th:  A few more details here.

Longtime readers know that we’ve written many posts over the years about myriad problems with Muslim immigrants (mostly Somalis) working at Tyson’s Food in Shelbyville, TN.  Most recently we told you about the film, produced by far-Leftwing film makers, that sought to gloss over problems in the town and was being shown around the US (and by the US State Department in Africa!).

Tonight we hear that an investigation is underway after graffiti in a rest room which said, “All Americans must die” has employees on edge.  There are also reports of a fire being set in a woman’s rest room.

From WSMV-TV 4 from Nashville:

The Shelbyville chief of police and a former Tyson employee confirmed that threatening messages surfaced this week, leading to extra security at the plant.

“A couple days ago, they had a terrorist threat that was written on the bathroom walls that said ‘all Americans must die,'” said a woman, who said she wanted to remain anonymous to protect her relative, who works inside the plant.

She said that she didn’t see the writing herself but is aware of what’s going on from others.

“One day last week, someone set the women’s bathroom on fire, and they finally put a security guard at the bathroom door,” the woman said.

She said workers are scared.

“Some of them are afraid. They’ve been talking about it and worried about it and wondering what Tyson is going to do about it,” she said.

“We have not been asked to come down to Tyson to make any kind of official report,” said Chief Austin Swing.

But Swing said the department has been asked to provide an armed, off-duty officer to patrol inside the plant through the holidays. Tyson didn’t explain the reason why.

“I guess I’m assuming now, but he’s just there for some type of security reason or to maybe to put people at ease who work there,” said Swing.

He said he believes Tyson has already removed the graffiti and is conducting its own investigation into who’s responsible.

“They’ve doubled up the guards in the guard shack outside,” the anonymous woman said.
Some at the plant are concerned.

“They’ve complained for years, as to why these people are being hired in our food department when we are worried about our safety as Americans, you know, and that’s something we all need to think about,” she said.

Coincidentally, only a few days ago Homeland Security warned about a possible terror attack involving poisoning our food supply, here.

Update: Jihad Watch has posted commentary on the Tyson’s story.

Comment worth noting: Somalis in America have population goal

The other day I told you how wrong the American Community Survey is about the US Somali population, here.   They have way underestimated it.  We have actually brought more Somali refugees to the US in 27 years than this branch of the US Census could find and count.

Reader Nur, sent this comment:

Ann you are very right,our number is more than that,we are wondering where that figure comes from?Our target is to hit 300,000 by 2020.

I am betting they are well into the 200,000s already.

A fishy story: the Columbus, OH pepper spray tale

I saw this story last night, it’s from Tuesday and headlined, ‘Muslim Woman Reports Harassment, Pepper Spray Assault.’   CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is involved and calling the incident a hate crime.

Here is the story at WBNS-10TV:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Federal and local authorities are investigating a possible hate crime after a Muslim woman said she was verbally harassed and pepper sprayed on Monday outside of an Islamic center on the city’s west side.

According to a news release issued by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the attack happened at about 1:30 p.m. near the Abubaker Siddique Islamic Center on Sullivant Avenue.

The woman, 20, who asked not to be identified, told authorities that she first noticed a man who appeared to be watching and following her, 10TV’s Maureen Kocot reported.

“I had a bad feeling about the man while I was driving,” she said. “He looked at me in a very strange way.”

According to the woman, the man followed her to the Abubaker Siddique Islamic Center, where he got out of his vehicle and approached her.

“He just started yelling at me, cursing me out,” she said. “Saying he’s going to kill me, and saying, ‘I’m going to kill all of you, all you guys. Tell the Muslims to go back from wherever they are from.'”

The woman, who was wearing Islamic attire, told 10TV News that the man then used pepper spray on her.

“He took the spray and just sprayed it all over me,” she said. “Like, all over me. My whole eyes, my whole face, everything.”

Fortunately there is a surveillance video posted with the story.  Please watch it!  Clearly she is seen driving very fast into a parking space with another vehicle hot on her tail.  The man blocks her vehicle with his and is seen jumping out and running to the passenger door and shouting at her.  Who knows what he said, maybe she had just cut him off on the highway and this was a road rage incident.

However, this is the questionable part:  WHAT WOMAN IN HER RIGHT MIND WOULD HAVE OPENED THE CAR WINDOW TO ALLOW HIM TO DO ANYTHING TO HER? She was also completely covered with a hajib from head to toe, so that doesn’t jive with her description of him spraying her whole face.  And there didn’t appear to be anything in the man’s hands nor did he make any motion of spraying anything.

CAIR sure got involved fast wouldn’t you say!

Readers, if you see  more on this fishy story please send it my way.

Endnote: It is not clear if the woman was an immigrant, a refugee, or an American convert to Islam.  I was just interested in the story.

Update! Now I see they are saying she is a Somali immigrant.  Please go listen to her speak in the interview in the above story then read this below.

You gotta laugh if you watched the surveillance tape, this is how the story is being told in a Somali publication. They say she was beaten up by men!

A Somali women was attacked by men with pepper spray in COLUMBUS Ohio, on Monday.

The men attacked Ms.Saida Said as she was leaving a Mosque in the city, they used pepper spray while they were beatening her up, say eyewitnesses.

It is not yet known the reason behind the attack on the 20 years old female from Somalia.

The mosque officials reported the assualt and provided security camera recordings to the police.
