Well, the American Libs are now only about one half-step away from not only condoning and supporting appeasement of Islamic fascism, but actually executing the same tactics to the same end: terror in America. (Via Best of the Web.)
Security Scare at Logan – Boston Globe
A 59-year-old Vermont woman’s behavior aboard a trans-Atlantic flight triggered a massive security response yesterday, with Air Force F-15 jets escorting the plane to Logan Airport, where federal agents seized the woman, authorities interrogated passengers, and police dogs sniffed through luggage for explosives.
The woman, identified by two local security officials as Catherine C. Mayo, will probably be charged today with interfering with a flight crew, authorities said. Mayo’s former husband said she had “emotional issues” and had been on her way home from vacationing in Pakistan.
Best of the Web reports on what Mayo’s emotional issues really are…. she is a MadLiberal.
“She showed a lighter and was like, ‘They let me bring this on the plane. I’m a journalist, and I’m going to try to sneak stuff on the plane,’ ” passenger Matthew Bolton said.
That account was unconfirmed by authorities, but NewsCenter 5 learned there was a Catherine Mayo from Vermont who wrote for the Daily Times of Pakistan in 2003. The woman who was arrested is a U.S. citizen, authorities said.
Here’s a sample of her writing……
I think the US people have forgotten that President Bush didn’t win the election. He only got the job because they couldn’t decide what to do with pregnant chads in Florida. . . . When President Bush announced that God was telling him to bomb Iraq, my stomach turned over. He has no right to include God in his State of the Union address. It is forbidden by law; the church and state are completely separate in the United States. No politically elected person can use religion for his own ends.
The government of the US has changed in the last few months, and the citizens of the country haven’t noticed yet. It has become an oligarchy. Its leaders rule with a wave of their hands, laughing into their sleeves. They can create any truth they want, and then create proof that it is real. They are accountable to no one. . . .
The people of the US don’t have power anymore. That’s what the Muslim world needs to understand. When President Bush says that he is God, the ordinary people go out and shovel the snow out of their driveways. There is nothing else they can do.
From what we see on some of the blogs, some of the email we get, and even the work of some major newspaper columnists, we’d say quite a few people these days have “emotional issues” that center on politics. Thank goodness most of them manage to control themselves while on airplanes.
I dare say that there are some GayPatriot commenters suffering the same “emotional issues” and had better maintain control of themselves at least if you are flying on a plane with me.
