The California chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CA) and United Sikhs will hold news conferences tomorrow to “announce the filing of multiple public accommodation complaints with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) against Boomers! amusement parks, a subsidiary of Palace Entertainment Holdings.”
They want Boomers! amusement parks to change its policy forbidding headscarves on go-kart rides, dismissing safety concerns as “unfounded” and claiming religious discrimination.
Boomers! attorneys might want to familiarize themselves with this case, which makes it abundantly clear that safety concerns are perfectly well founded, and that this action by Hamas-linked CAIR is about supremacism, not equal rights.

Local media reports said that her husband and children were at the track at the time.
Police have opened an investigation into the incident, which took place at the Port Stephens Go-Kart track on the New South Wales midcoast, and have seized the go-kart for forensic examination.

“[It appears] the scarf was pulled across her throat … from one side of the body to the other side,” he said.
Police said the woman and her family had been holidaying in Port Stephens, a popular coastal town, prior to the accident.
Signs at the track warn visitors about inappropriate footwear and advises drivers that they use the track at their own risk. However, there are no regulations about scarves or head dresses….
