He's not gonna sue? If I was him I sure as hell would. Rake them over the coals and get a gazillion bucks so you dont have to work again.

Fear is the path to the dark side.

Fear and xenophobia. After all, this IS the Age of The Donald.

Yeah, but this happened in California. You'll have a better chance of sighting a yeti in California than finding a Republican, let alone a Donald supporter.

The only thing I'm condemning (besides the airline employee who threw the guy off)

The straightforward answer is that yes, you do expect us to condemn her based on your speculation.

At least they weren't airborne yet. It isn't all bad.

So we're suppose to condemn her because of your speculation?

Seems to me it is a problems Muslims should solve. Stop the terror, problem solved.

I used to drive through the front gate of Camp Pendleton with 'Ya Rayah' playing full blast on Bose speakers....


Either that or Barra Barra...


Gotta keep the gate guards on their toes.

Lots of xenophobia in California, unfortunately.
But this is a natural consequence of our culture and over sensitivity to "triggers", harassment, and such. As long as we have laws that allow people to be so intolerant we will have this case. The fact that this involved a Arabic personality is irrelevant. Remember the college that threatened expulsion for writing "Trump" in chalk?-same mentality.
NYTimes should have interviewed the woman that complained or the airline crew. Weak reporting.

Some message boards are full of people applauding this. I'm glad that the members here are better than that.
