    Young Muslim woman had to quit her job at Sky News ... a moral conscious decision

    Now, let me preface this by I believe the recent murders/terrorist event in NZ and is abhorrent.

    Also, some here will brand me a racist ... though the issues are arn't race based, more tolerance/religion/snowflake based.

    And yes ... she is a snowflake

    ---

    As the Christchurch attacks unfolded, I knew I had to quit my job at Sky News

    Rashna Farrukh worked at Sky News in Parliament House until last week

    In the aftermath of the Christchurch terror attack, my social media feeds have filled with people expressing their shock and disbelief that something like this could happen in our part of the world.

    I wasn't shocked and couldn't understand why anyone else would be either.

    This is because for the past three years, I've worked at Sky News. More specifically, Sky News "after dark" — when the rolling coverage of the day's news makes way for conservative commentators to share the "opinions you can't ignore".


    As a young Muslim woman, I had many crises of conscience working here, but the events of Friday snapped me out of the endless cycle of justifying my job to myself. On Saturday, I finally sent in my letter of resignation.



    • I was there when Cory Bernardi advocated for banning the burqa,




    Yep, well I say, fuck that burqa off. So it's a no to burqas from David

    ---


    • I was there when a politician proudly talked about how she would, the following day, put forward the "It's OK to Be White"


    Yep, well I say, "It's OK to Be White" ... WTF ... am I supposed to be ashamed of what I am?

    ---


    • I answered calls from viewers who yelled about immigrants and Muslims ruining Australia. They did not realise that the person on the other end of the phone was both of those things.


    Well Rashna, that's why they call it work. It's not there to cater for your cultural sensitivities.

    You are there to represent your employer. Would a tea-toter resign when someone phoned up drunk?

    A vegetarian resign when the nights subject was how to cook the perfect steak.

    A devout Catholic resign when the nights discussion was about the Protestant belief?

    ---


    • Some nights I felt physically sick, others I even shed tears in my car on the way home.


    Then snowflake, you are in the wrong job, working for the wrong company.

    Did you talk with the companies HR Dept about being reassigned to another job?
    Did you seek guidance from leaders in your religious faith?

    So, you portray yourself as a devout woman of the Muslim faith ... yet, in NO photo publicly available of you do you wear any traditional head dress.

    Even at your relatives (assumed to be your sister's) wedding do you don attire in line with your religious belief.


    Friggin' Snowflake.

    Muslim woman resigns from Sky because it's owned and run by the same racist white wankers that own Fox News.

    TBH the only shocking thing about this is that she never realised she was token in the first place.

    Sky is not owned by Murdoch. It's owned by Comcast.

    Leftist idiots have decided Everything is about race. Let them piss and moan themselves into irrelevancy as the rest of the world marches forward.

    Most normal people are tiring of it. SJWs aren't anymore worth the contempt and derision they've attracted up to now. Tedious fcuking idiots are now just background noise.

    she quit her job because she determined her colleagues were bigots.

    why not?

    good for her.

    she wrote an article about it.

    why not?

    good for her.


    newbie dave....if you worked for a company that was bigoted against boring, milquetoast, halfwits like yourself, would you quit or stay on?

    As a side issue ...

    Racism is based on Race. As in figgin' Nigger/Coon/Whitie/Slope/Arabush ... or mixing it up as in a 'coconut' ... the list of ethnic slurs is endless.

    But what is the technical name for someone who discriminates on the base of religion?


    Does the same term apply when it's a Muslin and it's a Sunni debating/vilifying a Shia?

    Can of worms me thinks.

    Maybe someone smarter then me has the answer.

    Noted, but it was for most of her time there (she's been there three years), and I'm guessing they haven't changed it too much or they'd lose their target audience (Sun readers).

    She's a leftist nitwit scatterbrained VICTIM. Poor baby. A journalist OFFENDED by ideas that don't fall neatly in line with her own. Jefus Christ. Where did she go to school? Evergreen?


    crises of conscience
    Get your sorry ass out of the kitchen, snowflake.

    She needs to become a protester -- much more suited to her delicate sensibilities. Stupid slag.

    With the average mental age of the stephen yaxley-lennon brigade hovering around infant school level, they probably think there is a place called "Muslimland".

    But to be on the safe side they generally call all muslims "you fucking paki" anyway.

    To you it obviously is yeah. And the fact she's a woman.

    And you apparently reserve your most spittle-flecked opprobrium for women of color. It's creepy.

    No race issues here.

    She was born overseas.

    No mention where.

    Nor mention if she is an Australian Citizen or not.


    Nope ... no race issues here.

    Hope that clarifies the question.

    Nor did she. It was mentioned in David's comments and your reply. It wasn't mentioned in the original article (although D48s horrible formatting makes that hard to see). BTW, David, race is not about where you're born, you might want to get that straight before pontificating on the subject.

    Outrage is their ticket. It's all they have. Who would defend this woman but a SJW who sees nothing but non-white skin and a vagina (probably)? That's all they need to launch a puffy, piss-weak attack on anyone (most people) who think she's a worthless slag.

    Yep, worthless POS completely irrespective of race or gender. The "news" channel will miss her like a ruptured hemorrhoid.

    You're not supposed to be ashamed, but you are supposed to take the context.
    And how does that make her a snowflake?

    Is that supposed to be evidence that she's not devout? Why do you need evidence she's not devout? Not that what you put forth is evidence.

    Got that bit right. Yes, intolerant of (a particular) religion.

    That's not my understanding ... as per the above quote from the OP.

    But I don't know for a fact as I don't have Sky News
