Hey, remember those "Asian-looking" guys who were thrown off a British airplane for the crime of Flying While Maybe Speaking Arabic and freaking the brainless fucking sheep?
They're not the first case of this kind of passenger-mutiny idiocy.
Meet Amar Ashraf, who had this happen to him last week.
He's a PILOT.
From THAT AIRLINE'S PARTNER COMPANY.
That's right, they dragged a guy WHO FLIES *THEIR* JUMBO JETS FOR A LIVING off a plane because THEY WERE AFRAID HE MIGHT DO SOMETHING BAD WHILE HE WAS A PASSENGER ASLEEP IN BUSINESS CLASS.
Hey, everyone who's afraid of brown people: Remember the terrorists?
They won, and you helped them do it.

Hey, thanks for joining the real war on Terror, aka the war on brainless fucking idiotic goddamned sheep FEAR.
I see it's pissing you off as much as it does myself.
I've been on your side of this one for a while.

I've been coming to a rolling boil for weeks now, but right now a whole hell of a lotta heat is gone because I just got back from the French Quarter. You'd have to probably shoot me in the stomach with rock salt to piss me off right now.

See, the problem with giving you the link before I wrote my reasoned artilce is that my brain switched off and said "that's the best summary of it I can think of". So I quoted it
There's a chance that my google-fu will do good there, ina few days time it'll be top result for his name, so on the off chance people start looking we're good. If he sues (which he could) mebbe we could rustle up a fund or summat?
Silly idea, he's an airline pilot, he doesn't need the money, right? Until they fire him because he's of the wrong religion.

It's just one big glorious link sharing exercise; I read the story at lunch today (my paper) and just wanted to throttle people. A full write up may be needed later. I'm getting more pissed of with it every fucking day.

Words fail me.
With apologies to james_nicoll
, articles like these are starting to drive me to Benderism.

My head is getting too acquainted with my desk these days.
