‘Happy Ramadan’: Postal worker threatens to destroy mail featuring Muslim holiday stamps

Published

The US Postal Service is investigating threats made online by a woman identifying herself as one of its mail carriers, Buzzfeed reported.

The woman identifying herself online as Catherine An Ray threatened to tamper with mail on Monday after sharing a post by anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller complaining about the release of a stamp commemorating the Muslim holiday of Eid.

“[As] A US Mail Carrier I can personally assure everyone here that anything with this stamp on it will be lost or destroyed in the system before is [sic] makes delivery,” Ray wrote. “Guaranteed. Happy Ramadan.”

Delaying or destroying mail constitutes a federal offense. A spokesperson for the USPS, Toni DeLancey, told Buzzfeed that it would at the very least mean termination for any employee who refused to deliver mail.

“At this time we cannot confirm if the person involved in this matter is a postal employee,” DeLancey said. “But we can assure you that the incident is being fully investigated and that the Postal Service will take whatever action is appropriate.”

Ray’s Facebook feed reveals several anti-Islam statements, as well as her support for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has called for an immigration ban against Muslims. Screenshots from her page can be seen below.

GOP ripped for refusing to remove Trump from office: ‘Folly of that failure becomes clearer by the day’

Published

on

Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.

"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

Fox News commentator slammed for mocking Joe Biden’s decision to wear a mask

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
