What? Is Mohammad Abdulazeez, the jihad murderer of local servicemen, a hero in Chattanooga now? Beyond all criticism? Or are mall officials so terrified of offending Muslims who might decide in their rage to emulate Abdulazeez that they will fire Heidi Grubbs and ban her from the Northgate Mall rather than offend Muslim sensibilities?
As for the sign on her car, certainly it is in poor taste, but would it have gotten Heidi Grubbs banned from the Mall if it had said the same thing about Christianity and the Bible? I doubt it.
“Woman banned from Northgate Mall: ‘I will Sh** on your Quran,'” by Erik Avanier, WDEF, August 18, 2015:
CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee(WDEF) – A Chattanooga woman with strong views about Islam finds herself out of a job and banned from Northgate Mall.
Heidi Grubbs was gainfully employed at the Belk department store inside Northgate Mall until a customer overheard her conversation about domestic terrorist Mohammad Abdulazeez, the shooter who killed five servicemen in Chattanooga last month.
“I made a comment specifically towards the terrorist Mohammad and his family by stating that he was a piece of sh** scum and his family was too for killing our men. And then I was fired because I refused to apologize for it,” Grubbs said.
But losing her job wasn’t the only thing she was faced with.
“Two officers in the loss prevention office told me I was to be banned from all properties of CBL because of a sign that I have on my car.”
The sign is an anti-Islamic message that she proudly stuck on her window.
“The original sign on my car states that I will sh** on your Koran; I’ll spit in the face of your Mohammad; and that Islam is a lie.”
In a previous interview with Examiner.com Writer Joe Newby, Grubbs said she has been very outspoken about Islam since moving to Chattanooga from Memphis. “What happened to our soldiers” is more offensive than anything she might have written on paper, she added.
A CBL executive told News 12 that Grubbs was banned because she violated the mall code of conduct.
“It’s more to do with the vulgar language that was used. It’s not anything to do with her personal beliefs,” said CBL Marketing Director Catherine Wells.
Yeah, sure, the vulgar language, that’s what it’s all about. Not that anyone seems to have asked her to take down her sign. They had no other alternative besides firing her and banning her from the Mall? Ridiculous. Clearly the sign, along with her comments about Abdulazeez and his family, offended their politically correct Sharia-compliant sensibilities.
Grubbs was forced to sign a legal documents that solidified her being banned from all CBL properties for one year. And now she is threatening to take civil action because she feels her freedom or speech and expression has been violated….
