Man Kicked Off Flight Over Anti-TSA Shirt

•, Paul Joseph Watson
 A man and his wife were treated as potential terrorists and kicked off a Delta Airlines flight over a satirical T-shirt because it made passengers and employees feel “very uncomfortable”.

Writing on his blog, Arijit Guha describes how he was flying out of Buffalo-Niagara Airport after attending his wife’s grandfather’s funeral. Having passed through security without a problem, Guha was approached by a Delta agent who informed him that his attire was making passengers nervous.

The t-shirt features a TSA logo along with text that satirizes the agency’s paranoid and overbearing approach to airport security.

“I was then questioned by TSA about the significance and meaning of the shirt,” writes Guha. “I politely explained that it was “mocking the security theater charade and over-reactions to terrorism by the general public — both of which we’re seeing right now, ironically.”

 Anonymous75,  "For the sake of the passengers he threatened and scared to death" Why don't you sue him?

This weird, "colored" [his word] Delta airline passenger with a threatening stature standing more than six feet tall and his wife – most likely notorious adult activist followers of Ron Paul from the "lunatic fringe" was determined to pull a "joke" by wearing a T-shirt with a terrorist logo threatening to harm TSA agents, Delta officials and passengers in the airport in the name of liberty and freedom to do anything he wants [the words "BOMBS 20mg" and "kill" were printed, among others, inside an enlarged orange round emblem drawn right the entire front of the T-shirt].

Anyway, the bottom line is that this deadly Puck accompanied by his wife, was the one who caused their own travail and misery in the airport when they were detained, investigated and not allowed to board the airline. This mischievous but lethal "locoweed" of some sort was acting like a villain – the TSA and Delta officials were not the culprits -- in this kind of story that "finds a home in this website".

So here is the take for our readers to know: While this weird flyer traveling with his wife did his stunt to scare airport security and airline officials and the rest of the passengers in the name of his personal liberty and freedom to do whatever he wants [actually what he did was abuse of personal liberty and freedom], TSA security and Delta officers subjected him and his wife to a rigid and thorough security check-up and investigation, which these pernicious characters now claim was a nightmarish ordeal they have ever experienced in life, but this time the ordeal or the "joke" was on them, in the name of security and safety of other passengers.

This traveling T-shirt-wearing oddball reasoned out that he was wearing the T-shirt only to MOCK the existing tight TSA security screening in the airport which he didn’t like at all, but he didn’t mean to kill anyone.

Then as you read the whole story he posted on Twitters later, he lapsed into a labyrinthine justification of his culpable misbehavior with a long-winded litany of denunciations, accusations and excuses. One of these accusations was racial. He claimed he happened to be "brown" not white that was why Delta singled him out and discriminated against. He accused Delta of being a racist, and argued with so many other irrelevant excuses for his misdemeanor. He claimed to have a colon cancer and did not want to go to an X-ray security screening to aggravate his ailment, so forth and so on.

If he was telling the truth that he has a medical predicament, the more that he should be discreet and careful of his action, instead of acting irresponsibly like a juvenile delinquent having some fun in the airport of all places, wearing a "bomb" yarn and a "kill" prank T-shirt, and of all the worst time, while the passengers were about to board the plane!

Anyway, he was finally "cleared" by security – most likely TSA officials just looked down on him as some kind of a joking moron … but the Delta Pilot did not allow him and his wife to board the aircraft... And he went ballistic accusing the Pilot of ignoring the security clearance of TSA officials for them to board. You may read the full story of his boring if not foolish tear-jerker, which is a hell of a long narrative projecting himself as the "victim" rather than the "victimizer" that he really was.

Well, his protestation against the action of Delta’s Captain and Pilot of Flight #1176 is plain IGNORANCE, which by the way, is common among Ron Paul supporters from the "lunatic fringe" when they converge on the street and march any of their protest under the sun. This crank is unaware that Captains of airplanes and ships are by law vested with authority to make decisions for the safety of passengers on board. They can even perform marriage aboard their conveyance. The Pilot who was the Captain of the Delta airline, did not allow this loony to board because the rest of the passengers were fearful of their presence aboard the aircraft.

In other words, the Captain has the authority and responsibility to see to it that the passengers are safe, comfortable and not fearful of any tragic incident that could occur once they are airborne and/or during the entire duration of their flight.

If you ask me, this traveling abuser of liberty and freedom who thinks he can do anything he wants, was still damn plain lucky. For the sake of the passengers he threatened and scared to death, he should have been subjected to "waterboarding" to make him cough out the real intention behind that stupid gag.

The FBI and Homeland Security should have taken over jurisdiction of this incident, and assumed full responsibility of investigating and finally deciding whether or not this man should be allowed to travel.

There is no room for any kind of compromise for the security and safety of air travelers – the only reason why a repeat of 911 [blowing up of airlines by terrorists] has NOT occurred for several years now!

When we are traveling, my life and yours and that of our family traveling with us, are absolutely not a joking matter! How stupid can this guy get, is beyond belief -- a reality that is not of this planet!
