Spencer tends to forget that a job is a job. Everyone has the right to work where they want in America.
The real question is, Why would a Muslima want to work at Abercrombie & Fitch in the first place? Wouldn’t she find the clothing line, the advertising, and the whole atmosphere objectionable on moral grounds? Shouldn’t she prefer to shun such an environment rather than want to work there at all, especially if she is pious and observant enough to want to wear the hijab? Unless, of course, the real point of her getting hired in the first place was to compel an American business to change its practices in order to accommodate Islamic norms, and thereby to assert once again that Islam must dominate and not be dominated.
This Muslim woman chose to work at a place where her love for fashion could be a place to help others find the perfect accessories. Her personal accessory happens to be a hijab.
“Abercrombie & Fitch will also be selling hijabs, niqabs, and burqas once creeping Sharia takes effect.” Spencer needs to get a life.
Most of the comments for this post veer far off topic and into an odd self-gratifying Hadith flinging game. Here is a sampling of the “moderated” comment section:
Responding to the SPLC article citing Robert Spencer as one of the leading anti-Muslim Islamophobes, Spencer has gone on a tirade calling the SPLC a Jihad front group. He also swears he isn’t working with fascists:
“I’ve never had anything to do with any racists or neo-fascists, and never would”
