You’re a Nazi if you stand for free speech

A man peacefully holding a sign that says “The right to openly discuss ideas must be defended,” is verbally assaulted by Leftists, some wearing black masks to conceal their faces, and called “Nazi scum” who should get “off our street”.

Among the attackers are Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK’s Labour Pary and a member of Parliament (2:02 mark in video below), and Gary McFarlane, leader of Black Lives Matter UK (3:12 mark).

Corbyn has called for the UK government to bar President Trump from visiting the UK because of his executive order banning visitors from certain majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.

Let me see if I have this right —

People who call themselves “Progressives” act like regressive street thugs, attacking and calling a man “Nazi scum” for holding a sign defending the right to free speech and the open discussion of ideas.

Yet another case of the Left’s psychological projection and rank vileness.

Just imagine what these people would do to you if they attain and wield total power.

Two men fight on Southwest plane, as other passengers flee

More “Fly the Nightmare Skies”….

On May 7, 2017, as Southwest flight 2530 was taxiing to a terminal at Hollywood Burbank Airport for a layover, two young black men started punching each other, as other passengers seated nearby flee from the melee, while a woman can be heard screaming: “What’s wrong with you?”.

Flight 2530 to Oakland, CA, had originated in Dallas, Texas.

The Los Angeles Times reports that according to Burbank Police Department’s Sgt. Derek Green, officers arrested Chaz Cable, a 37-year-old Lancaster man, for misdemeanor battery. Cable is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

The airline issued a statement that three people were involved in the fight rather than two, and that “We’re grateful to our employees who quickly reacted to break up a fight involving three customers. One customer had minor injuries, but was able to travel onward. We have no other reports of injuries.”

It’s unknown who the other two people involved with the fight are or how it started.

Two men fight in plane; stewardess choked

More fly the nightmare skies.

At around 6 p.m. on May 1, 2017, just before an All Nippon Airways (ANA) flight was about to depart from Narita International Airport to Los Angeles, two men started a brawl as other horrified passengers looked on and a desperate stewardess tried to pull them apart before being “choked” by one of the brawlers.

A passenger, Corey Hour, took this cell phone video of the fight, which appears to show the man in the Hawaiian shirt was the aggressor.

The guy in the Hawaiian shirt yells “I will kill you!,” while someone in the cabin shouts, “Someone help! This guy is crazy,” as two female flight attendants try to break them up. Other passengers can be heard begging the two men to “please stop” as a baby cries in the background.

When Hawaiian shirt man walks away, the man in the black t-shirt shouts, “Get this guy off this plane!”

Just when the brawl appears to have stopped, Hawaiian shirt man charges back down the aisle and resumes throwing punches at the guy in black.

According to Japan Today, Corey Hour, who took the video, told the BBC that “The flight attendants actually got caught up in the mix and that’s when the video ends as I put my phone down and I actually got in the middle of everyone and confronted” Hawaiian shirt guy.

Hawaiian shirt guy is a 44-year-old American whose name has not been released. A member of the airport police told AFP that “The suspect, a U.S. citizen, was drunk and arrested after he injured [choked] an ANA official following the fight.”

The fight, as well as bad weather, forced ANA Flight 6 to delay the departure of the flight by one hour and 40 minutes.

Delta Airlines pilot hit passenger fighting with another

More fly the nightmare skies.

On April 21, 2017, as a Delta flight was deplaning at the Atlanta airport, two feral women began fighting, exchanging fisticuffs.

A Delta pilot intervened to break up the skirmish by separating the women. He then grabbed one of them and hit her. The pilot quickly disengaged and walked away as both women were still on the ground.

TMZ obtained a cell-phone video of the incident.

TMZ was told that the two women knew each other and had gotten into a skirmish earlier on the airplane, that a Delta employee gave a supervisor the video almost immediately after the incident, and that some Delta employees were upset because security wasn’t called.

A representative for Delta told TMZ:

“We became aware of this incident and a video last week and immediately removed the pilot from duty while we completed a thorough investigation. Local law enforcement was called to respond at the time of the incident. The pilot has since been returned to work as our investigation found that his actions deescalated an altercation between passengers on the jetway floor during deplaning.”

The two women were eventually escorted away by a Delta employee. As they were walking away, police arrived. Neither of the women wanted to press charges against anyone.

Fly the nightmare skies: woman sues Delta for sexual assault by masturbating man

First, it was United Airlines dragging and injuring a paid passenger off an overbooked flight.

Then, it’s American Airlines’ male steward hitting a mom carrying two infants with a stroller.

Now it’s Delta Airlines.

A Michigan woman has filed a civil suit against Delta Airlines for its flight attendants doing nothing to stop a passenger, Christopher Finkley, 41, from masturbating and sexually assaulting her on a flight from Myrtle Beach, S.C., to Detroit, Michigan.

Upon deplaning, Finkley was arrested.

Here’s the account of what happened on the Delta flight from the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Michigan’s Sentencing Memorandum, Case No. 16-mj-30520, by Daniel L. Lemisch, Acting United States Attorney:

“On July 27, 2016, defendant Christopher Finkley boarded a Delta flight from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to Detroit, Michigan, and sat in his assigned seat in first class. Within forty minutes of take-off, a flight attendant observed him masturbating with his penis exposed.

Before the plane landed, the defendant went to the back of the plane to use the bathroom because the first class bathroom was out of order. On his way back from the bathroom, he sat in an empty seat next to an adult woman (the ‘victim’ or ‘AV-1 5’). The victim was seated in the window seat, so the defendant sat in the aisle seat. Shortly after the defendant sat down, he placed his hand on the victim’s upper thigh and began to rub her bare skin. While he was doing this, the defendant told her that he ‘liked white women’ and asked ‘where’s your man?’ The victim told him to ‘please stop’ and stated ‘my kids are behind me.’ The defendant continued to touch the victim’s bare thigh and told her that he was massaging her leg.

Again, the victim asked the defendant to stop. He then put a part of his hand underneath AV-I ‘s shorts and continued to touch her. When the defendant realized the flight was landing sh01tly, he returned to his seat. After his return [to his assigned seat], he resumed rubbing his exposed penis, this time observed by a second flight attendant.

Upon landing, AV-I immediately texted her daughter and told her to stay in her seat because she was scared. The defendant was taken into custody and interviewed by FBI Special Agent Michael Thomas and Detective John Carmona.

During this interview, he admitted that he had two drinks before and during the flight. Initially, he stated that he did not intend to expose himself and that he was not masturbating—that the zipper of his shorts must have come down and he was attempting to zip it back up when the flight attendant walked by. The officers advised defendant of the statements that others made on the scene, and that he could be prosecuted for making false statements under 18 U.S.C. 1001. The defendant then admitted that he likes to sit with his hands in his pants and massage his penis, and called this ‘his happy place.’ He stated that on the flight, he thought he was covered with a blanket while doing this, but he guesses that he was not covered up well enough. He stated that he did not mean for the flight attendants to see his penis but that it is possible that they did. Defendant then admitted to touching AVu l on the outside of her knee and making a ‘caressing motion.’

Immediately after the incident, the victim was too distraught to make a statement. Officers reported that she was visibly upset and crying. The victim later explained that she was especially distraught because her fourteen-year-old daughter was supposed to sit in the seat that she occupied, but she had switched with her prior to the flight taking off. The victim feared that this could have happened to her daughter. She now suffers from anxiety when flying.”

In the Sentencing Memorandum, Acting U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch notes that:

This is a serious offense. The defendant touched a woman on her bare thigh, putting parts of his hand underneath her shorts, without that woman’s permission. The defendant continued to do so after the victim told him to stop. The victim feared for her safety and for the safety of her children. That this offense took place on an airplane only escalates its severity. The victim did not have the ability to get up and walk away with the defendant seated in the aisle seat blocking her path. She was effectively trapped.

According to the Sentencing Memorandum, on November 2, 2016, Finkley pled guilty to simple assault in violation of 18 U.S.C, 113(a)(5) without a plea agreement. At the hearing, Finkley denied masturbating on the flight and denied exposing his penis. He only admitted to touching the woman’s leg, that his zipper had broken, that he does not wear underwear, and this is why his penis may have been exposed.

I can’t find a pic of Christopher Finkley in news accounts of this incident — in either WJBK Fox 2 or CBS Detroit or Mugshots.com.

So I did an online search for “Christopher Hinkley” and immediately found him on LinkedIn, where he identifies his occupation as “Auto Truck Transport” in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

That is consistent with his description in the Sentencing Memorandum:

“He completed high school and has held relatively steady employment as a commercial truck driver since 2007. (PSR 25-28). He is married with two children. (PSR 45). He denies any history of mental health or emotional health problems. (Id). However, he did admit to the FBI that his ‘happy place’ is to massage his penis with his hands and has, at least on this occasion, done so in public.”

The Sentencing Memorandum emphasizes:

“The defendant must be deterred. A custodial sentence of thirty days will reflect the seriousness of the defendant’s conduct, promote respect for the law, and provide a just punishment that adequately addresses the lasting effects the defendant’s behavior caused the victim. Members of the public deserve to be free from the fear that they could be assaulted on an airplane.”

On March 28, 2017, the court recommended that Finkley be sentenced to 30 days imprisonment, followed by 6 months of supervised release.

According to a report by WJBK Fox 2, however, Finkley was sentenced for assault and indecent exposure and given only a seven day jail sentence and one year probation.

So much for the court-recommended sentence of 30 days in order to “reflect the seriousness of the defendant’s conduct, promote respect for the law, and provide a just punishment that adequately addresses the lasting effects the defendant’s behavior caused the victim.”

Speaking to FOX 2, the victim’s attorney Jerry Acker said what the Delta flight attendants should have done, after they found out Finkley was masturbating and exposing himself in first class, was to monitor Finkley and not allow “that predator to run through the cabin” to sit next to and assault the victim.

Acker says he is negotiating with Delta to resolve this, and that if he can’t, a lawsuit will be filed.

Delta said the flight mentioned was operated by ExpressJet, a Delta connection partner. Delta and ExpressJet released a statement that they have no comment about the possible lawsuit.

Now it’s American Airlines: Male steward hits woman with stroller, challenges passenger to a fight

The friendly skies have become a nightmare for travelers.

Barely two weeks after United Airlines became a pariah for assaulting and forcibly dragging a ticketed passenger, 69-year-old doctor David Dao, off an overbooked flight, American Airlines made the news when a male steward hit a mother with a stroller as Flight 591 was about to depart from San Francisco to Dallas Friday afternoon, April 21, 2017.

Passenger Surain Adyanthaya took this video and posted it to Facebook.

Adyanthaya said he started filming after the flight attendant “violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby. They just involuntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers. The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined.”

In the video taken by Adyanthaya, as the mom cries uncontrollably after being hit with the stroller, a male passenger confronts a male flight attendant, saying, “You do that to me and I’ll knock you flat.”

The flight attendant, who is a head shorter than the male passenger, points his finger at the man and tells him to “stay out of it.” As the male passenger steps closer to the attendant, the latter goads the man: “Try it. Hit me. You don’t know what the story is.”

The male passenger replies, “You almost hurt a baby!”

The passenger eventually returns to his seat and the flight attendant leaves the plane.

Adyanthaya posted another photo on his Facebook page showing the woman who was struck had two infants – believed to be twins – in her arms. She was reportedly removed from the plane, while the flight attendant who assaulted her was permitted back on the plane.

According to Reuters, American Airlines spokeswoman Leslie Scott said the incident started over a dispute as to whether the woman could bring her stroller on the flight. Witnesses said the male flight attendant told the woman she could not keep the stroller at her seat in the rear of the plane, and that she was trying to find space for it when the initial incident occurred.

American Airlines said in a statement:

“We are deeply sorry for the pain we have caused this passenger and her family and to any other customers affected by the incident.”

The male flight attendant has been suspended, while the woman and her family were upgraded to first class for the remainder of their international trip.

Update (April 24, 2017):

I’m incredulous that some commenters on the video posted on Adyanthaya’s Facebook page actually applaud what the bald American Airlines attendant did. They accuse the woman of fake crying, and blame her for not following AA rules, as if that warrants her being struck with a stroller by the attendant. I honestly don’t know what has happened to us — that increasing numbers of people seem to be turning into vicious psycho/sociopaths.

Here are two examples:

Megan Gennah Kaplan: “Maybe have some fucking respect for employees of a company and do what they ask you to do, so they don’t have to use force to do their job” (Her comment got 172 “likes”)

Otini Tupou: “”Baldy probably wouldve whooped heros ass” (This comment got 32 “likes”)

A reader of this post on FOTM‘s Facebook page wrote:

Shirley Carter: “These passengers are out of hand 🙄 Between the bawling, ignorant woman, the loud mouth man, the do nothing pilot, and the jetway ground crew that allowed that stupid stroller to make it on the plane in the first place… was a fiasco. I want to give that flight attendant a break for putting up with this kind of crap all day long!”

Actor John Cho blames Trump for United Airlines dragging paid passenger off overbooked flight

On April 9, 2017, a United Airline flight 3411 at Chicago O’Hare International Airport was overbooked.

When no one would take UA’s offer of a voucher in return for leaving the flight, three Chicago Department of Aviation security officers forcibly removed a paid passenger, Dr. David Dao, from the plane, dragging him down the aisle by his arms and legs while other passengers shouted in protest.

The man was bloodied from the manhandling:

United CEO Oscar Munoz issued a statement calling the incident “upsetting” and apologized “for having to re-accommodate” customers, but gave no explanation as to why the man was singled out for forcible removal. Public relations analysts have panned the company’s public response to the incident.

Displaying impeccable logic, actor John Cho @JohnTheCho (Mr. Sulu on the Star Trek reboot movies) blames the airline’s brutish behavior on Trump. Cho tweets:

It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that flight.

That’s Hollyweirdo logic for ya.

As you can see, Cho’s scapegoating garnered 6.5K “likes” and 7.6K retweets, which just goes to show that the studies showing a decline in Americans’ IQ are on the nose. See:

The responses to Cho’s ridiculous tweet are hilarious. Here’s a sample:

“What about Putin? Are you sure he had nothing to do with it?”

“If stupid could fly, you’d be a jet.”

“Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong with this one.”

“Trump is an incompetent dolt and can alter the behavior of private airline employees AT THE SAME TIME.”

“It’s hard not to see a connection between dumb things actors say & what movies I won’t be watching.”

“This type of delusion proves definitely Liberalism is a psychopathy. You nuts lost the election because normal ppl cannot relate to you.”

“Great career move John u just hacked off 50% of trek fan base to be hip, out of touch, divisive and political.”

Update (April 27, 2017):

New York Post reports that Dr. David Dao and United reached an “amicable” settlement for an undisclosed amount, according to a statement from his lawyers. Terms of the settlement are confidential.

Attorney Thomas Demetrio praised United CEO Oscar Munoz: “Mr. Munoz said he was going to do the right thing and he has. In addition, United has taken full responsibility for what happened on Flight 3411, without attempting to blame others, including the City of Chicago. For this acceptance of corporate accountability, United is to be applauded.”

Today, United announced an overhaul of its policies, including reducing overbooked flights and offering up to $10,000 for passengers who agree to give up their seats.
