Another drone in the endless parade of cognitively impaired racists at Stop the ACLU has posted a complaint about the awarding of $240,000 to a man who was forced by TSA officials to cover his T-shirt before boarding a flight from New York to Oakland because it featured a message written in Arabic.
The point here isn’t so much whether this kind of incident is commensurate with a third of a million dollars, but that American citizens have a right to not be treated the way Raed Jarrar was. And given that no one involved was even capable of interpreting the writing on the shirt (translated, “We will not be silent”), this is exactly the kind of move that kindles the fear-bred ignorance of the massive redneck arm of the United States populace.
Moreover, this “William Teach” jackhole (who also wrote a post similar to Gribbit’s about the alleged implications of the recent rise in sea ice levels) has no problem engaging in just the sort of “reasoning” that domonstrates that Stop the ACLU commenters are not trying to accomplish anything; they’re just using their lumbering pisspot of a blog to preach to the decerebrate choir. I mean, stuff like this?
See, he was stopped from going on the plane because many other passengers were a wee bit scared shatless about flying with a guy wearing a t-shirt with Arabic script on it.
That’s good to know. The next time I fly and see someone I decide is too fat or too ugly or anyone with small children apt to make noise, I’m going to lobby to officials to have them removed from the manifest. I don’t give a fuck if they paid as much as I did for their tickets–MY comfort’s at stake here!
I can’t for the life of me figure out why, because there is no evidence that Muslims hijack airplanes, is there? And certainly no evidence that virtually every hijacking has been done by Muslims.
I’d like to see Mr. Teach provide statistics on the percentage of Muslim fliers who have hijacked airplanes over the years. I bet it’s not much more than 50 percent. As for his second statement, its intended sarcasm falls flat (note to nuts: avoid employing literary devices, you suck at them) because there is, in fact, no such evidence, the presence of domestic Muslim terrorists like Ted Kaczynski and Tim McVeigh notwithstanding.
I’d like to know the fraction of white Christians from the U.S. South who belong to the Ku Klux Klan compared to that of U.S. Muslims who actively support the goals of Idslamic extremist. My guess is that it would be no contest. Therefore, all white men south of Maryland and east of New Mexico should be jailed.
Gee, what about our right not to have the plane hijacked and flown into a building?
Excellent point. This constitutionally granted right is clearly violated by the presence of Muslims with the temerity to wear clothing with Arabic letters on it. Considering that this tool can’t even use his own first language properly, why is he so concerned about others? (That’s a rhetorical question; unlike some of his peers at Stackloo, Mr. Teach knows full well that he’s full of shit and is only seeking validation via the most primitive of approaches.)
