A Trump-deranged woman on a Baltimore to Seattle flight went bananas when she learned that a fellow passenger was not similarly inclined, and was so abusive that she was kicked off the flight.
The object of her scorn, Scott Koteskey, described the confrontation on Facebook, writing in part…
I’m boarding my flight from Baltimore to Seattle and approach my seat…As I approach my row I smile and motion to the husband and wife sitting in the aisle and middle seat that my seat was next to the window. I put my backpack in the overhead and the wife with a very stern voice says to me:
“Did you come here to cheer or to protest?”
“I came here to celebrate democracy ma’am”
She then proceeded with: (somewhat paraphrased as my memory allows):
Her: “You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes! You should be ashamed!”
Me: ‘Well we’re all entitled to our opinions here ma’am.”
Her: “And I’m entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap! I’m going to throw up right in your lap! You make me sick! Don’t talk to me! Don’t look at me! Don’t you dare even put your arm on that rest. You disgust me! You should be ashamed of yourself! You put a maniac’s finger on the button” (assuming she’s means nukes). You are a bigot. You should get off this plane!”
Me: “Ma’am, by definition, bigotry is disparaging someone prior to knowing them simply by their beliefs and opinions. Thank you for being the very thing you preach against.”
She then proceeded with other various rantings such as my lack of critical thinking and other insults. Finally a flight attendant came over as you will see in the video followed by a supervisor informing that she would have to de-board the plane per captain’s orders….
In the video, the flight attendant asks the woman if there is a problem. She replies that she wants Koteskey to change seats.
“You don’t have that right,” the flight attendant says, and leaves to get another attendant.
So the madwoman continues to berate the poor passenger. “You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button!” she says to Kotesky. “That man doesn’t believe in climate change!” she announces, using air quotes when she said “believe.”
Better shoot him, then.
“Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity is just a theory?” she continues. (Notice that the woman’s husband in the aisle seems to be quietly wishing he was in an undersea paradise, and makes no effort to get his spouse to behave, the weenie.) Amusingly, when the next flight attendant tells her that the captain wants her off the flight, she says, “Have some respect!”
Eventually, police came and forcibly removed her, along with her lily-livered and probably abused husband. Pray for him. (Please let me know her name, and I’ll update this.)
What the…? How do people get this way? What combination of poor upbringing, ideological intolerance, indoctrination by fear-mongers and ethical blindness could induce any American adult to behave like this? By all accounts, including his own, Koteskey didn’t begin an unwanted conversation about the virtues of Donald Trump. She asked him, he answered, and she attacked. Is this what Democrats mean by resistance? Is this the face they want to place on their party and its beliefs? I hope so, because this is the identify it is acquiring, and fast.
Again I must borrow Glenn Reynolds’ favorite gag: “I said if Donald Trump was elected President, we’d end up with a nation of assholes, and I was right!”
Concludes the abused Koteskey:
“As the lady was removed I saw that I was surrounded by blacks, Latinos, Asians, and whites, all who had chimed in asking her to be removed and who had defended me. I was touched and moved knowing later that not all these people were Trump supporters. The black man who took the seat next to me was a registered Democrat and he and I had a very good discussion about the beauty of free speech and coming together when people insult and commit acts of violence just for having differing views. It truly was a great demonstration of AMERICA and its people coming together and standing up for one another.”
Yes, these are what I would call normal, rational, ethical, patriotic Americans.
Why would the Left try to create any other kind?
