Rye Playland was shut down Tuesday after cops scuffled with Muslims upset that women wearing head scarves were barred from the rides, witnesses said.
Fifteen people, including three women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos, authorities said.
The ban, which is not Muslim specific, was imposed about 3 years ago mostly to prevent hats from falling onto the tracks of roller coasters and other rides, park officials said.
I have a suggestion. If they do not like our way of life and our rules they can go back to where they came from. I am sick of having to tippy-toe around they perpetually over-sensitive emotions. This is not a Shiria-rule country. (Not that Obungler hasn’t tried his damnedest to move us that way.) Our Constitution is incompatible with radical Islamism. It’s not us we need to change. They don’t need to be here.
Ann Althouse has more. Check out the comments. I’m not the only one getting annoyed.
I’d say they were the opposite of an easy target. It was, in fact, very difficult to hold them to a rule that applies to everyone. They demanded a special exception, caused a scene when the didn’t get it, extracted refunds, and brought some terrible press to the park and the police.
Pretty much the way they want it.
