#1 He denied the imams were talking about Saddam, and said that their seats were assigned and that they requested extenders because their seat belts didn't fit.

You gotta be a major porker for the normal seatbelts not to fit.

#6 An airport police report listed a passenger and two US Airways employees as complaining about the imams.

It’s an open secret that MSP International Airport continues to have one of highest alert status in the country. Furthermore, the organizers for the “summit” in the T-Cities have a known history of manufactured dramas intended to draw attention in the form of lawsuits. More to the point, they knew American Airlines would react exactly in the manner they did. It’s not about racial profiling or even winning a lawsuit. It’s simply another artificial event to draw attention to a non-issue. In short – Contrived Propaganda.

#7 bottom line - pay the extra and don't fly through Minneapolis.

#8 Defending the passengers from this craven bullshit taqiya is a perfect example of why the ACLU was founded long ago.

Another use of our "system" against us, with the goal of intimidating people into silence.

Fuck the ACLU. Fuck these agents of barbarism. Fuck CAIR. Fuck Islam.

#9 In short – Contrived Propaganda.

Spot on, DepotGuy. Most astonishing of all is that our own government assists with Islam's cloaking of its vile intentions by spewing the usual Religion of Peace [spit] bullshit.

With the media facilities available to them, our leaders should be creating awareness and security information packages to warn us about this exact sort of crapulence. Instead they appease and fawn over America's worst enemies.

#10 Punky Crolutch3978 there was a great article the other day about how it is a myth that the ACLU was ever anything but a communist front, intent on destroying America from within. They named names. Sorry, can't remember where I read it. Maybe frontpage. Maybe rantburg!

#11 My apologies, then, Angaiger Tojo1904 - my nym changed cuz I had to go away for a smoke.

I won't credit the ACLU with what is not due. What they are today is Pure Red, so I'll stick to that. I hope they're among the first to fall.

#12 me too. What I really hope is that someone sues their ass for all they are worth and they wind up in a trailer park working for $5 per hour for some guy named Miguel.

#14 heheh... on second thought I think I was far too kind. What I'd really like to see is them stripped of their American citizenship and forced to enjoy the rights of living as an infidel in an Islamic country.

yeah. That's IT!

No, make all muslims walk or take the bus. There is nothing that says we HAVE to let them fly. If they want to cause trouble, gather up a couple of dozen "good ol' boys" and let them discuss it with them - with axehandles. Living in this country requires one to accept the will of the majority, not demand special status as a minority.

#17 have you been through Minneapolis lately? Most of them are probably not fanatics. but the problem is that there are so dang many of them you don't know where to start.

Personally - I'd feel much better if I had to fly through there if YOU were on my flight. But as a believer in stats and numbers - those are odds I'm not willing to play.

Money talks. If the majority of flyers refuse to fly through Minneapolis - increased security would be the result!

#18 MSP International Airport is over run with Somali Muslim workers. I'm willing to be that's why the Imams pulled this shit there.

Actually, the US system of government was framed in such a way as to protect the minority from the majority. That's my understanding of it anyway.
On the other hand, I'm not sure how many have noticed, but the SCOTUS derives its power from the majority. It's the majority that makes SCOTUS what it is.

No, I value my privates far too much to soil them with this kind of vermin-riddled trash, I don't think even penicillin would work.

You are right FdM. Much of America's framework is steadfastly devoted to this concept. Examine the Electoral College if you doubt this.
