True/with Denials, but now with even more doubts, From an airline professional, friend: Story is rated as suspicious, but the details are now being confirmed by other passengers. Twelve actually did get off (they were fed up and wanted No more of this atrocious behavior).
The spokesperson at AirTran told Media, the guy was on a different plane? No TSA or police agents boarded, and the eleven were not dressed in Islamic garb (much?) How did they know who to take off, then let return? If the guy was not on the plane, like they said, how did he know about removing 11 trouble makers? The 2 1/2 hour delay ‘reportedly’ was due to the fact the men could not speak English?
Now THAT is suspicious. Two and One half Hours to find a ‘Terp’? Then convince the guy to put away his cellphone? The weak explanation is worse than the ‘real? story.. ‘Cair’ lawsuits followed the last time ‘Shieks on a Plane’ caused trouble. I can see why no one ‘Wants to get involved’. what’s with these guys anyway? Don’t they like our system? (That is obvious) It sure as hell beats theirs..
Strange thing is, the true postings get few hits in comparison to the outrageous false information. Guess that is why Main Stream Media is so popular with the unwashed (brainwashed?) masses?
I will leave this story for a while. Hits are running twenty to thirty times the number of Hits on the real aircraft/military stuff I usually post. Enjoy…Rant……Make nasty comments….Work up your blood pressure. That’s what Media does best.
Here is the Truth or Fiction link. ‘copy paste’ is best: http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/airtran297.htm
This below is yet another source of the story (many more on net, some in comments) : People have also called the originator and he say’s ‘True and Political Correctness ‘cover up’ is in full swing’, Now what?
Also no one heard about the Muslim man that went into the restroom and removed the ceiling panels during a flight. Luckily an alert FA told the Captain and the door was forced open to get him out of the ceiling. That story was squashed immediately.
I’m sure without a doubt CAIR is deep into this, they tend to protect their own dis-functional miscreants…
Pray for air travel passengers and Crews these days, they sure missed the wonderful civilized years of our Pre-PC Liberal past.
One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father.
On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the news papers on the 18th, you may have seen or read, a Main Stream Media ‘blurb’ where an AirTran flight …’reportedly’…was canceled from Atlanta to Houston ‘Reportedly’ due to a man who refused to get off off his cell phone before takeoff. It was reported on Fox.
This Main Stream Media ‘Report’, was NOT what happened.
I was in 1st class coming home. Eleven Muslim men got on the plane in full Islamic attire. Two sat in 1st class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane, all the way to the back. As the plane taxied to the runway, the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with.
At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic, very loudly and very aggressively.
This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture, for she had repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at that time. He ignored her as if she was not there.
The 2nd man who answered the phone did the same and this took out the 2nd stewardess. In the back of the plane at this time, 2 younger Muslims, one in the back ‘aisle sea’, and one in front of him, ‘window seat’, began to show footage of a porno they had taped the night before. They were very loud and obnoxious about it.
Now from what I have studied….they are only permitted to do this prior to a Jihad. If a Muslim man goes into a strip club, he has to view the woman via a mirror with his back to her. (don’t ask me….I don’t make their rules,… but I’ve sure studied them)
The 3rd stewardess informed them that they were not to have electronic devices turned on at this time. To which one of the men said “shut up infidel dog!” She went to take the camcorder and he began to scream in her face in Arabic.
At that exact moment, all eleven of the Muslims got up and started to walk the cabin. This is where I had enough! I got up and started to the back where I heard a voice behind me from another Texan, who was twice my size, say “I got your back.”
I grabbed by his arm, the man who had been on the phone, and I firmly said “You WILL go sit down or You Will be thrown from this plane!” As I “led” him around me to take his seat, my fellow Texan grabbed him by the back of his neck and his waist, and headed out with him. I then grabbed the second man and said, “You WILL do the same!” He protested but adrenaline was flowing now and he Was going to go, one way or another.
As I escorted him forward, the plane doors suddenly opened and three TSA agents and four police officers entered. Myself and my new Texan friend, were told to cease and desist, for they now had this situation under control. I was happy to oblige actually.
There was some commotion in the back, but within moments, all eleven Muslims were escorted off the plane. TSA then unloaded their luggage.
While waiting, we all talked about the occurrence, and were in disbelief that it had happened. Then suddenly, the door opened again, and on walked all eleven Muslims!! Stone faced, Eyes front and Robotic (the only way I can describe it).
The visibly upset stewardess from the back had been in tears, and when she saw this, she was having NONE of it! Being that I was up front, I heard and saw the whole ordeal.
She told the TSA agent, there was ‘NO WAY’ she was staying on the plane with these men. The agent told her they had searched them and were going to go through their luggage with a fine tooth comb and that they were allowed to proceed to Houston.
The Captain and o-Captain came out and told the agent, “We and our crew, will Not fly this plane!” After a word or two, the entire crew, luggage in tow, left the plane. 5 minutes later, the cabin door opened again, and a whole new crew walked on.
Again…..this is where I had enough!!! I got up and asked “What the hell is going on!?!?” I was told to take my seat. They were sorry for the delay and I would be home shortly. I said “I’m getting off this plane”.
The new replacement stewardess sternly told me, that she could not allow me to get off. (now I’m mad!) I said, “I am a grown man who bought this ticket, who’s time is mine, with a family at home and I am going through that door alone, or I’m going through that door with you under my arm!! But I am going through that door!!” And I heard a voice behind me say, “so am I”.
Then everyone behind us started to get up and say the same. Within 2 minutes, I was walking off that plane, where I was met by even more agents who asked me to write a statement.
I had 5 hours to kill at this point, so why the hell not. Due to the amount of people who got off that flight, it was cancelled. I was supposed to be in Houston at 6pm. I got here at 12:30am.
Look up the date. Flight 297 Atlanta to Houston.
If this wasn’t a dry run, I don’t know what one is. They wanted to see how TSA would handle it, how the crew would handle it, and how the passengers would handle it.
I’m telling this to you because I want you to know….
The threat is real. I saw it with my own eyes….
personal Note from BG and friends: Sounds suspicious but after the Minneapolis fiasco and the Islamic lawsuit filed by CAIR, this could just as easily have been one more ‘Deep Pockets’ attack, using the insane PC legal system of the USA.
