Three Spirit Airlines employees were battered in a wild melee at a South Florida airport over a delayed flight, according to a report. The brawl captured on video broke out Tuesday night at a gate for a Philadelphia-bound flight from Fort Lauderdale International Airport, news station WPLG reported. The employees suffered minor injuries when three passengers “became combative following a delayed flight,” the airline said. In the clip, several women were seen hurling items at the workers before going behind the counter and attacking at least one of the employees.

Exactly why I don’t fly anymore. If I can’t drive there I don’t go!

Again, again, and again, I should know better than to look at the video. Always, the usual suspects were involved.

At this point, any time that you see the word “brawl” in a headline, there is no need to read further to know exactly who and what happened.

Most of the black women I’ve known or worked with, no matter their education level, background—they all could go full ghetto (for lack of a better word) at any moment. Like Jeckyl and Hyde. It was weird. Even the speech pattern would revert to tough talking, low brow nonsense. I have a black friend from high school—super smart, was one of the best students, bit shy, always a lady, college degree, very religious. She joins our lunch group once in a while. She could be perfectly calm and then just turn a switch and you’d think, what on earth? Must be a cultural thing.

So, I thought, "Gee, I wonder what race the violent passengers are... I'll bet they are black." I suppose it makes me a racist, but I was correct in my surmise.

Chances are anyone identified in this incident assaulting airline employees has flown on their last commercial airline flight, as the US airlines can collectively ban anyone from flying on their aircraft, if they have a record of assaulting airline employees. Essentially those perpetrators will have to take the bus from now on.

If making a joke about having a gun will get you arrested for terrorism in an airport, these women should be put away for 10 years.

"Among the items thrown at employees were phones, shoes, full water bottles, metal boarding signs and fast food, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Tymaya Wright, 20, Danaysha Dixon, 22, and Keira Ferguson, 21, were all busted on battery charges in connection with the violent encounter, authorities said." Just BLM "peaceful protestors." Nothing to see. Move along.

One can only imagine the pain of being freed from the shackles of slavery, and then being told there's a flight delay.

A side note - Spirit Air could reduce many folks to hysteria. My daughter and her husband’s family took it from Chicago to Florida. Ended up in wrong side of Florida and missing the wedding. They did not attack anyone, however.

You have to remember a lot of times when commercial airline flights are delayed it is because of serious mechanical issues with the aircraft or bad weather conditions. Either could result in a crash killing everyone aboard an aircraft, anyone who can’t understand that is simply ignorant.

“How can we not be united against death?” (snip) From this point on, there can be nothing that takes priority over shutting down the Chinese exotic-animal trade and wet markets. Nothing. The Chinese should be subjected to the same sanctions and restrictions meted out to white South Africans during apartheid, until the wet markets are closed and exotic animal traders gulag’d like Uighurs. The death toll from COVID has already—in one month—matched and doubled the entire 55-year death toll from apartheid.

Chicago's Mayor Lori Lightfoot hit out at White House press secretary Kaleigh McEnany Thursday calling her a 'Karen' for saying she's a 'derelict mayor'. McEnany was answering reporter questions during a press briefing earlier Thursday when she made several sharp comments about the mayor and accused her of 'doing a very poor job at securing her streets'. (Snip) The mayor responded on Twitter shortly afterward by sharing a screen grab of Bennett's tweet and adding, 'Hey, Karen. Watch your mouth'.

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who "unmasked" officials in the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, said Tuesday that President Trump is wrong when he accuses the Obama administration of spying on his campaign in 2016. "Absolutely no, it did not happen. That is false. That is another lie designed to deflect from the president's own very bizarre relationship with Russia; to distract from the much validated reality that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump," Rice said during a discussion with Washington Post Live.

Los Angeles County, the nation’s second-largest school district, announced this week that students will not be returning for in-person classes this fall and must instead continue to participate in the failed distance-learning experiment it initiated after the onset of COVID-19. This decision was made not by the parents or the schools but by the teachers union, which has opposed all attempts to reopen the county’s schools. United Teachers Los Angeles, which represents more than 35,000 teachers in the area, argued at first that the health of its members and the students they teach was the primary concern. How, they asked, would the schools be cleaned regularly

Berkeley, California has approved a plan that prohibits police officers from conducting traffics stops. The plan, proposed by the mayor and approved in a virtual city council meeting early Wednesday morning, is just one part of a major "defund the police" overhaul planned by the city, Fox News reported. The move to separate traffic enforcement from police work is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S, according to the report. Instead of having trained officers conducting traffic stops, the new policy will send in unarmed civilian city workers to deal with traffic offenders.

n April, author and political commentator Michael Walsh predicted that Joe Biden would choose Michelle Obama as his running mate within a month or so: “[It] would be an unstoppable ticket, and potentially give the Obamas eight more years in the White House.” Walsh quotes Dick Harpootlian, South Carolina’s former Democratic Party Chair: “If she engages, God help Donald Trump, because she’s tough as nails and enormously popular.” Mrs. Obama, Walsh wrote, “is the perfect vice presidential candidate, one who will . . . push progressive causes, and check all the social justice boxes” while sparking a massive African American vote, a feat beyond Biden’s wildest dreams.

Just look at Biden’s plan to eliminate the internal combustion engines. Biden says that on his first day in office, he will develop “rigorous new fuel economy standards aimed at ensuring 100% of new sales for light- and medium-duty vehicles will be zero emissions.” Biden hasn’t said exactly when he wants new cars to be all-electric,
LA Times article calls to cancel ‘Star-Spangled

An article published in the Los Angeles Times Tuesday said that the “Star-Spangled Banner” should be replaced by Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” LA Times contributor Jody Rosen cited “viral posts on social media” which said the anthem is racist, then argued it is aesthetically a bad song in the article. Rosen concluded saying the message of “Lean on Me” can be a foundation for a “decent” society. “If the point of a national anthem is to provide a mnemonic, a reminder in music and words of the ideas and values that this place is supposed to stand for, you could do worse than ‘Lean on Me,’” Rosen wrote.

The National Football League celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This should be a time of self-congratulation for the brutal sport, which has no similar counterpart outside the United States. The NFL's megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America's national sports event. The league has survived all sorts of crises in the past. It was one of the first professional sports to integrate its teams, doing so in the 1920s. But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn't reintegrate until the mid-'40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially-blind meritocracy.
