Here we go again. That's why the Americans are like wondering Jews. They are the most hated bunch outside of there borders. Prejudice from the day they were born. Scared as hell when they see there own shadow. All they do is pretend. They think there better then anyone else. Please take off those horse shades and look around you there are good people around you not all are crazy. But you wonder why others outside dislike you.

I'm sorry, but it was Muslims who brought us 9-11; consequently, they are all under extreme scrutiny. Had I been a passenger on this flight with the two Muslim men who were roughly the same age as the 9-11 hijackers, I would have gotten off and waited for another flight! Call it prejudice if you want to, but better safe than dead! If it were a bunch of Irish Catholics, or Evangelical Christians who caused 9-11, I would say they should be treated the same way!

The word is cowardice not prejudice.
For the sake of this country I hope you are not a man.

You sound like a pretty prejudice yourself. Kudos to AirTran. Always like them. Like them better now.

By the time they are proven guilty it may be too late. Attitudes such as your weak **** set of values is what has caused this nation to be virtually overrun by illegal aliens. When we are attacked again, you'll be one of the first ones out there screaming like a little girl..."Why didn't our government protect us??"
It' because pussies like you have caused our security forces to be handcuffed you stupid jerk!
They are guilty of what exactly?

Even Aitran admitted they were wrong and issued a full apology.

Next he'll be telling us about "at the end of the day" and "redacted" and "closure" and blah, blah, blah! Oh yeah, he loves the word "bigot" too. He and his lover will probably name their adopted son that.
I'm actually a female. Maybe you've heard of us? Women? Or perhaps you've seen a picture of one on the internet once? I'm part of that gender that won't even give you the time of day.

Troll. Stirring the pot. Whatever you want to call it, you're lame. Do you ever go outside? Do you ever talk to people in real life? Because, from what I've seen, you've logged waaaay too much time here on this forum for me to believe that you actually have a life outside of this.

You live in Central Florida. When your Southwest jet goes down, it will be with a bunch of screaming kids and drunken adults on it. Hopefully, you'll land on the beach in Fire Island, NY, where the boys will show you a GRRREAT time, as they pass you around...
Not if I'm flying over the Atlantic or Pacific, moron. My flight might not go down until I'm between California and Maui. You never know. I like to look at the bright side.

Are you implying that I, a female, should be raped? Because that's kind of harsh. Or are you implying that only men use this board? Either way, it kind of makes you look like a douche. Do you kiss your mom with that mouth? Do you praise your lord with those evil thoughts running through your mind? I'm pretty sure, that with such evil thoughts you're going to end up in h*ll. I mean, just from what you seem to be saying here. Perhaps you should re-think your life style?

Wah wah. Every one is keeping whitey down. A white man can't get a good job these days because we are lazy and expect the world to be handed to us! Wah! Wah!

Please, explain to me how illegal aliens are getting all the "good jobs". Because, and maybe my standards are higher then yours, all the "good jobs" do back ground checks to make sure you are who you say you are. Have you ever tried to get a big boy job? Maybe a place where you have to wear dress pants every day? Or pays more then 35K a year? I'm guessing not.

I don't know son. It seems like you don't like America's standards for treating all people as though they are innocent until proven guilty. I think..that maybe you should get the fak out instead. Maybe you could start your own country of uptight dudes.
Maybe you can go sympathize with terrorists. Either Way, the issue here, idiot, is that they were NOT profiled. They brought attention to themselves.
Don't like it? Don't Fly.

I don't need to start my own country, I have one, and wish to keep it that way. You are so biased towards the muslims, what are your feelings about Israel?

I'm an idiot. I literally do not know my **** from my head. It makes bathroom time very hard. I'm racist and afraid of people who have pigment (or religions for that matter) that are different from my own. I'm a good ol' coward. I vote Republican, even though I'm poor. I have no life and try to feel like a big strong man, despite being only 4'9, online by telling people to leave the country because they don't agree with my ideas. Ideas, might I add, that very few people in America hold.
All in all - I'm not very smart at all. Sorry for the disruption guys. I'm going back to the fox news forums where I belong.
There I was thinking you'd finally caught on!!! Then you start up again...

I'll bet you're one of these real "tough" guys who's a badass behind their keyboard! I'll also bet you don't have the 'nads to spew your drivel in the real world!

Oh well, pathetic attempt at sarcasm...at least the Huntress person made some valid points...take a clue from her!

Hell, I am white and everyone seems to think that I inherited millions, don't have to work, was given a college education, both the diploma and it was paid for by my rich parents, got a cush job handed to me by someone my family knows, that I hate anyone who isn't white and will make up lies to hold all non-whites down.

Do you even remember what the people in question said while on the airplane? They made an innocent comment and were kicked off the plane because they happened to look a certain way. Sorry, you've got nothing to stand on here.

I think you should look into another country. Really. Your negative, racist mind set is not shared by most Americans. You're pathetic and sad. Maybe you could buy a small island to live on?

Ah..honestly I just think September 11th happened because those people on the airplanes were pretty much stupid or scared shitless (except for the plane in Pennsylvania. Now those passengers had balls).
Also as far as Muslims in general, I know plenty of muslims that would kick any high jacker's ass if the plane was threatened.
Oh and me, myself, if someone threatened my travel plans, and messed up my relaxation time, I personally would just destroy them right there on the plane, scary terrorist or not. And trust me, the 100 or more people on an airplane can easily take out a few terrorist thugs. We don't live in Hollywood where the terrorists have machine guns or what not. And the way our security is set up I don't think they can sneak guns onto airplanes.
So if I were you, instead of being scared shitless and racially profiling people for no good reason just because they are different, I would go and take a few self defense classes and stop acting like puss***. Get some balls!!!!

Wow, genius. You went from I'LL KILL 'EM ALL to 100 PEOPLE ON THE PLANE WILL GET 'EM pretty fast. Nice to know when there's a problem in the cockpit, you'll be safe in your seat in Row 26.
